  • PREP SOFTBALL: Lady Cards win...

     

    The Taylor County Lady Cards put on quite the show Tuesday in the Hit the Beach Classic in Panama City Beach, Fla.

    Taylor County erupted for 17 runs in the second inning, invoking the three-inning mercy rule in a 22-0 victory over Panama City Beach Bay.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: New bat rules in...

     

    Youth baseball players across the country will need to get a new bat this season after USA Baseball implemented new regulations in January.

    Bats need to have a USA Baseball stamp on them to be legal for play in several organizations, including Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken – of which Campbellsville Youth Baseball is now part.

  • PREP TENNIS: Despite new look,...

     

    Taylor County senior Tyler Franklin has been around the Cardinal tennis program for several years, and each season when it’s time to get his racquet out, he finds himself teamed with a new doubles partner.

  • Milby set to take over helm of...

     

    Depth is key in high school baseball, and the Campbellsville Eagles have plenty of it under first-year coach Blake Milby.

    Campbellsville returns 16 players who saw action last season, giving Milby a good core to build around as he takes over for longtime coach Kirby Smith.

    “I feel the greatest strength we have this season is depth,” Milby said in an email. “We have several players that are interchangeable and versatile, which allows us to make multiple moves within the lineup and not lose anything.”

  • Lady Cards will again be 5th...

     

    Since Neil Sanders took over as coach in 2013, the Taylor County softball team has been one of the best in the 5th Region.

    The Lady Cardinals have won 20-plus games each season, won the 20th District title in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and played Central Hardin for the region crown in 2015.

    With nine of 10 starters back, Taylor County looks to maintain its place among the region’s elite teams.

  • Lady Eagles look to avenge 2017...

     

     

    There they were, on the cusp of making history.

    Just three outs separated the Campbellsville softball team from punching its ticket for a berth in the 5th Region tournament for the first time since 2008.

    The Lady Eagles led Taylor County by two runs in the 2017 20th District opener, and the mood in the dugout was a happy one.

    But, fate stepped in and the Lady Cardinals scored three runs in the home half of the seventh inning to pick up a 6-5 victory.

  • Cards look strong as season...

     

     

    With a strong nucleus of players returning from a team that finished with a 23-10 record a year ago, there is a lot of optimism surrounding the Taylor County baseball team as it prepares for Monday’s season opener at Nelson County.

    Coaches in the 20th District have altered their schedules in a way that will affect the seeding process, giving Cardinal coach Jeff Gumm even more hope that his team can contend for a district championship they last won in 2016.

  • Eagles top Cards, fall to Adair...

     

    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...

     

    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.

  • Taylor basketball legend Brent...

     

    If local basketball fans were asked to name a family most synonymous with Taylor County High School, they would quickly say the Coxes of Mannsville.

    And, thus, tonight when Cardinal fans are on their feet cheering their team on against their most hated opponent, cross-town rival Campbellsville, in the opening round of the district tournament, many of them will undoubtedly be doing so with a heavy heart as they mourn the passing of Brent Cox.
