    Rodney Turpin has resigned as Taylor County High School’s head football coach.

    He was an assistant for the Cardinals after also heading up the middle school program.

    The win ended a five-game win streak for Olivet Nazarene and answered a CU loss on Dec. 5 at ONU, 78-63.

    Campbellsville University’s all-time winningest coach and NAIA Hall of Famer is dragging down yet another top honor.

    Donna Wise, who won nearly 71 percent of her basketball games, will be inducted into the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame during an April ceremony in Louisville.

    The Lady Eagles host Taylor County on Friday at 6 p.m.

  • Tigers fall to No. 19 Union U.

    Twenty days between games and playing without star player Greg Truvillion didn’t seem to bother visiting Union (Tenn.) University on Saturday as the 19th-ranked Bulldogs held off a second-half rally to beat Campbellsville University 76-68 in the Powell Athletic Center.

    Campbellsville out-scored Union 20-14 in the first nine minutes of the second half to pull the game even at 54-54, but the Tigers failed to ever build a lead and stop the Bulldogs’ offense.

  • Lady Tigers take two on Bayou

    If you play in a place you proudly call “The Barn” it’s no wonder that you win 94 percent of your home games.

    That was the case until Sunday when Campbellsville punctuated a three-game Xavier University losing streak with a thrilling 71-70 win. The Golden Nuggets had won 80 of 85 home games until Langston, Lindsey Wilson and the Lady Tigers ran through The Barn.

    “We were lucky today,” coach Ginger Colvin said. “They outplayed us in every aspect of the game but the score.”
