  • Eagles top Cards, fall to Adair in district title game


    The momentum inside Paul J. Coop Gymnasium was changing hands, and everyone in the standing-room-only crowd knew it.

    Campbellsville sophomore guard Malachi Corley hit an off-balance layup while getting fouled, then made the free throw to put the Eagles ahead to stay in their 58-50 win over archrival Taylor County on Feb. 22.

    Campbellsville secured a spot in the Boys’ 5th Region Tournament for the first time since 2010 by knocking out their crosstown nemesis and three-time defending region champions, the Taylor County Cardinals.

  • Lady Eagles are 20th District champs


    The Marion County Lady Knights wanted to keep Nena Barnett and Kiyah Barnett away from the ball as much as possible, trying to limit the Campbellsville senior duo’s scoring chances Friday night.

    That just left things wide open for one of the Lady Eagles’ youngest and smallest players to step up and help deliver their first district title in 16 years.

    Eighth-grade guard Bri Gowdy scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds as Campbellsville beat Marion County 51-41 in the 20th District Tournament final at Paul J. Coop Gymnasium.

  • Cards split pair with Casey, Henry Clay


    TreVon Smith scored 37 points, including 17 in the opening period, as Taylor County snapped a nine-game losing streak with an easy 71-47 win over Casey County last Thursday.

    Smith’s opening period output was 11 more points than the Rebels scored in that eight minutes as a team.

    Taylor County (5-21) hit 55 percent of its two-point field goal tries in the win.

    The win was the Cardinals’ first since a 56-45 win over Moore on January 23, a game in which Smith scored 31 points.


  • Eagles close regular season with thriller


    Campbellsville squandered a 15-point third quarter lead but recovered in the final half minute of the game to close out the regular season with a 70-68 win over Nelson County.

    The Eagles had stretched their five-point halftime lead to 50-35 on the strength of a pair of treys from Connor Wilson, five from John Orberson, and four from Logan Cole.

  • Lady Cards fall to Marion 54-46 in district


    Senior guard McKenzie Carney didn’t want to believe her high school basketball career was over.

    Walking out of the locker room at Paul J. Coop Gymnasium, it slowly began to sink in.

    Taylor County’s season ended before the Lady Cardinals hoped it would, with a 54-46 loss to Marion County in the semifinals of the Girls’ 20th District Basketball Tournament Tuesday.

  • Lady Eagles reach district finals


    Dreams really do come true, Nena Barnett.

    Heading into the final two weeks of the regular season, the Campbellsville senior guard said she really wished her team would get to region.

    Go ahead and pinch yourself, young lady. Your team is heading to the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament for the first time in 16 years.

    Barnett and her twin sister, senior forward Kiyah, combined for 25 points as Campbellsville beat Adair County 62-53 in the semifinals of the 20th District Tournament on Tuesday at Paul J. Coop Gymnasium.

  • TCHS wrestlers medal at state


    The sixth year was the best for the Taylor County wrestling program.

    At this past weekend’s KHSAA State Wrestling Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Alltech Arena, Taylor County had two wrestlers — 113-pound senior Brandon Miller and 120-pound junior Brad Miller — finish third and another — 182-pound senior Dakota Santiago — place sixth.

    The Cardinals placed 14th with 70 points, a great ending to a successful season.

  • Local swimmers medal in region


    You won’t find any local swimmers on the heat sheets when the state competition begins in Louisville next week, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t perform well in last week’s regional meet in Elizabethtown.

    The teams from Campbellsville and Taylor County finished in the middle of the pack, a result not unexpected since they do not field teams large enough to rack up points by having swimmers in almost every event.

  • Wrestlers headed to state


    The Taylor County wrestling program may be small in numbers, but the Cardinals don’t lack talent.

    They took seven wrestlers to the Region 2 Wrestling Tournament at Owensboro High School last weekend, and six — 113-pound senior Brandon Miller, 120-pound junior Brad Miller, 138-pound sophomore Jackson Grimsley, 145-pound junior Griffin Hall, 182-pound senior Dakota Santiago and junior heavyweight Tate Morris — advanced to finals.
