  • Winners on and off the diamond

    Ran into Larry “Pee Wee” Gumm at the Taylor County-Marion County baseball game on Thursday, where oldest son Jeff guides the Cardinals, and the first thing that came to my mind was the Wednesday passing of another legendary baseball coach — Paintsville’s Charlie Adkins, the father of Campbellsville University men’s basketball coach Keith Adkins.

    Charlie, who played professional baseball in the Cincinnati Reds’ organization, won 805 games in 34 years. Gumm, the Green County icon, won more than 1,000 games.

  • Cards can't surpass Marion...

    Taylor County’s rally came up one run short and the Cardinals fell at home to Marion County 7-6 on Thursday.

    The Cardinals (11-9) grabbed a 2-0 advantage in the bottom of the first inning on singles by Levi Smith and Blake Dudgeon around a Logan Tucker double.

    However, the Knights (9-6) had five hits to take a 5-2 lead in the second frame and added single runs in the fourth and seventh.

  • CHS Eagles stay on top in 20th...

    The Campbellsville High School Eagles captured 20th District road games at Marion County on Tuesday and at Adair County on Friday to improve to 4-0 in district play with two games remaining.

    Taylor Levi tossed a two-hit shut-out at Marion County on Tuesday as the Eagles won 3-0.

    Levi had seven strike-outs and allowed only one walk.

    Aaron Schwoebel and Bradley Bates had two hits for Campbellsville while Levi doubled and Brett Kearney singled.

    The Eagles improved to 10-7 overall with a 16-3 shellacking at Adair County on Thursday.

  • Eagles knock off Cards 11-9

    Hayden Neal’s three-run double in the top of the sixth inning gave Campbellsville the lead for good in the Eagles’ 11-9 baseball victory at Taylor County on Thursday.

    CHS (7-6) took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning on a walk to Brett Kearney and a two-run home run by starting pitcher Aaron Schwoebel.

    However, Taylor County (9-6) took a 3-2 advantage in the bottom of the frame on a single by Levi Smith and doubles by Matthew Johns and Aylette Cowherd.

  • Lady Eagles finish runners-up in...

    No. 20-rated Green County waltzed through the Touchstone Energy Fifth Region All “A” Classic Softball Tournament on Saturday at the Campbellsville Middle School field.

    However, a pair of winless teams tasted victory for the first time this season.

    Bardstown started the six-game, one-day tourney with a 10-9 victory over Fort Knox, giving the Lady Tigers their first season triumph after starting the campaign with 11 consecutive losses.

  • Mobleys find their way back home

    The summer of 1971 didn’t seem a whole lot different than any other in Campbellsville. Youngsters would get in as many neighborhood baseball and wiffle ball games as possible and also find time to take winners in outdoor and indoor pick-up (3-on-3 or 5-on-5) basketball games.

    This particular August day, a pair of 6-3 twins — one left-handed and the other right-handed — from the Lexington area made their way onto the court at Powell Athletic Center.

  • Eagles open district slate with...

    Campbellsville downed Adair County 5-3 on Tuesday at home to begin 20th District baseball play.

    Brett Kearney got the complete-game win for the Eagles (6-6) and struck out six while scattering four singles and two doubles.

    Ben Janes had a single, a double, a stolen base and scored two runs for Campbellsville while Taylor Levi had two singles and two RBI and Lake Wiseman a single, a walk and three RBI. Levi Murray also singled for CHS.

  • TCHS' six-game winning...

    Despite winning all five games on its Florida spring break trip and its first game back home, Taylor County’s Cardinals dropped its first 20th District tilt by losing 11-4 at Marion county on Tuesday.

    The Cardinals committed five errors and allowed four-run innings in the third and sixth.

    Logan Tucker had two hits for the Cardinals while Levi Smith homered and knocked in two runs.

  • Lady Cards use pair of seven-run...

    Taylor County’s Lady Cardinals broke loose from a 3-0 advantage with a pair of seven-run innings to pound the home-standing Campbellsville Lady Eagles 17-2 on Monday night.

    Becca Cook’s run-scoring single in the first and Karissa Mings’ hit and second Lady Eagle error of the inning put TCHS up 3-0 in the third.

    Mings had stifled Campbellsville on three early hits, a double by Destiny Wilson and back-to-back second-inning singles by Kelsey Feltner and Mary Brower as coach Kelly Townsend’s club built its lead.
