  • Lady Eagles soar to homecoming...

     

     

    Bri Gowdy helped Campbellsville celebrate homecoming with a performance most athletes would love to have just once in a career.

    The diminutive guard scored 29 points, including a pair of free throws with 6.9 seconds left in the game that sealed the Lady Eagle’s 51-46 over Thomas Nelson.

    Many of Gowdy’s points, especially those at the end, helped Campbellsville stave off numerous rallies by the Generals.

  • Eagles pick up three dramatic...

     

    It’s never over till it’s over.

    Campbellsville trailed 4th Region All “A” champion Clinton County by nine points with 1:57 left in the game, but rallied for a 56-55 win on Malachi Corley’s free throw with 1.4 seconds left in the game. It was his only made free throw in five attempts.

    Arren Hash’s three point-field goal off a pass from Connor Wilson had helped the Eagles knot the score.

  • Lady Cards take two wins

     

    Shay Mitchell scored all of her team high 11 points in the fourth quarter as Taylor County defeated Pulaski County 49-41 Tuesday night in Somerset.

    “We got a couple of buckets ahead and she had the ball in her hands and they fouled her,” coach Tim Peterson said. “She was aggressive taking the ball to the basket and did a good job hitting her free throws.”

    Mitchell scored only one field goal but made nine of her 10 charity tosses in the final quarter.

  • Barnett twins give Lady Eagles...

     

    Seven years ago, Anthony Epps noticed the Campbellsville Lady Eagles had a pair of fifth graders on their roster.

    Yes, fifth graders.

    Kiyah and Nena Barnett were added to the roster for the 2010-11 season by coach Cameron Jackson, and both saw game time that year.

    Epps knew then the talent the twins possessed.

    “I saw the special qualities in them,” he said. “I knew they could be pretty good as they got older.”

  • Young to be inducted into 5th...

     

    Troy Young will be inducted into the 5th Region Athletics Directors’ Hall of Fame tonight at halftime of the Taylor County boys’ game versus John Hardin, which starts at 8 p.m.

  • Cards grow in tough games...

     

    Maze Stallworth thought his team grew up quite a bit Saturday night.

    Going up against one of the state’s best in Scott County, Taylor County didn’t back down from the challenge presented by then-No. 2 Scott County.

    The result wasn’t what Taylor County wanted, winding up with a 67-52 setback in the Clem Haskins Classic at Citizens Bank Arena, but the team showed signs of growth and maturity.

    And at this time of year, with the postseason approaching, that’s exactly what Stallworth wants to see from his squad.

  • CHS bowlers compete in Region 2...

     

    Campbellsville High School girls’ and boys’ bowling teams competed in KHSAA region competition Jan. 25-27 in Elizabethtown.

    Patrick Walker, a sophomore, finished singles competition in 10th place and was named to the all-region team.

    Walker will advance to the state tournament, which will be Feb. 8 and 9 at Executive Strike & Spare in Louisville.

    The boys’ team qualified as the second seed in the tournament, and defeated Thomas Nelson to advance to the semi-finals.

  • Taylor bowlers roll their way...

     

     

    Welcome back, Taylor County!

    After a one-year hiatus, the 2016 Kentucky boys bowling champions will be returning to the state tournament in Louisville Feb. 9.

    The Cardinals finished runner-up to Russell County (3-2) in last week’s regional championship tilt in Elizabethtown.

    They advanced to the finals with wins overs Nelson County (3-2) and Campbellsville (3-0).

  • Smith, Cardinals fighting...

     

    TreVon Smith has seen the spoils of victory.

    He has witnessed what it’s like to play in the Mecca of high school basketball, under the bright lights of Rupp Arena.

    For the past two seasons, the Taylor County junior guard has seen the peak of the mountain with the Cardinals, the three-time defending 5th Region champions.

    But this year has gotten off to a rocky start for Taylor County, which is 4-12 after Tuesday night’s win over Louisville Moore. Smith, though, isn’t panicking.

  • Campbellsville teams fall in All...

     

    When Bardstown defeated Campbellsville 59-58 in the finals of the Campbellsville Holiday Classic in late December, the game was not decided until Connor Wilson’s last-second baseline jumper bounced off the rim.

    It was only fitting that the rematch last Thursday in the opening round of the All “A” Classic was also decided on a shot at the end of the game.
