  • Cardinals 6-4 after 53-41...

    Tevin Webster had six points in the first quarter and inside mate Chase Seaborne six in the second period, and Taylor County out-scored Claiborne (Tenn.) 19-9 in the second quarter to capture fifth place 53-41 on Wednesday afternoon in the T.J. Samson Hospital Holiday Classic at Barren County.

    Coach Troy Young’s Cardinals won their last two games and now stand 6-4 overall.

    Webster finished with 15 points while Seaborne totaled 10. Webster also had three assists, two blocked shots and two steals while Tyler Moss had seven assists for Taylor County.

  • Lady Tigers finish 2009 at 11-1

    If you started looking for comparisons between the Campbellsville University Lady Tigers and their Saturday afternoon opponent, Indiana Wesleyan, there weren’t that many.

    Well, the teams both sport two seniors on their rosters and both beat Bethel at Bethel.

    So, if someone was looking for an advantage going into the game between the NAIA’s 10th-ranked Division I team and NAIA Division 2’s No. 4, IWU had a seven-point edge in the margin of victory over Bethel.

  • Hall's shot sends Glasgow...

    Cameron Hall, a Campbellsville University signee, hit a fall-away jumper with just more than 10 seconds to spark Glasgow past Campbellsville in a semi-final clash in the T.J. Samson Hospital Holiday Classic on Tuesday at Barren County.

    The Eagles (5-2) had fought back from a 14-point second-quarter deficit.

    Bryton Taylor’s 45-foot banked-in three just before the half-time horn brought CHS within eight, and the Eagles used seven Taylor points to creep within six (56-50) at the third-quarter stop.

  • Football, soccer and baseball...

    The project that will ultimately lead to night games for football, soccer and baseball and artificial turf for football and soccer, drew its first dirt Monday when holes for the light poles began to be drilled at Finley Stadium.

  • Bardstown beats short-handed...

    Playing without a pair of starters, MeLeigha Pollock (back injury) and Hope Wigginton (out of town), the Taylor County Lady Cardinals fell 55-43 at Bardstown on Monday night.

    The Lady Cardinals (7-3) trailed only 34-30 at the intermission, but were out-scored 13-6 in the third quarter.

    Freshman Mercedes Cox paced Taylor County with 26 points while juniors Elizabeth Thomas and Alana Claywell added seven apiece.

    The Lady Cardinals begin play Sunday in the Independence Bank Holiday Classic at Daviess County.

  • Tigers get 11th win over Shawnee...

    Campbellsville University rang up its 11th win Friday night in Warsaw, Ky. by defeating Shawnee State 75-68.

    It was the second time in three weeks that the Tigers (11-3) got the better of Shawnee State (4-8), having defeated them 62-58 in Portsmouth, Ohio on Nov.  24.

    Tigers’ Coach Keith Adkins thinks Shawnee State may be just a few pieces away from competing when they join the Mid-South Conference next season.

    “They’re just young,” said Adkins. “They play mostly freshmen and sophomores.”

  • TC falls in first round

    Taylor County lost its opening game, but bounced back to upend Ballard Memorial 58-45 on Tuesday in the T.J. Samson Holiday Classic at Barren County High School.

    The Cardinals saw a 13-point lead shrink to four in the first half before Cody VanMeter’s three-point play enabled TCHS to move the lead back out.

    In the third frame, the Bombers again moved within four, but a Lloyd Stotts’ trey and VanMeter’s lane jumper spearheaded Taylor County’s double-digit win.

  • CHS easily handles Adair

    Bryton Taylor had 18 points in the third frame and led Adair County 27-26 going to the final quarter as Campbellsville easily handled the home-standing Indians 67-43 on Tuesday night in Columbia.

    The Eagles (3-1) never trailed in the game and led by nine thrice in the first half.

    Taylor took over in the third period and expanded to 24 (50-26) on his left-wing trey with 11.8 left in the quarter.

    Eight other CHS players scored, but Taylor was the lone Eagle to reach double digits.

    Kyle Sandusky led Adair County with 21 points while Tristan Reece added 10.

  • Lady Cards improve to 7-2

    Taylor County hit 10 of 12 free throws down the stretch to clip Green County 49-46 in girls’ high school basketball on Friday night.

    The win broke a five-game losing streak to the Lady Dragons, all by double digits. The TCHS girls last beat Green County on Dec. 15, 2006, at home.

    The Lady Cardinals used a pair of 10-2 runs to offset Green County’s 6-3 start and 25-13 cushion in the first half.

  • Taylor trips up Green 55-50

    The Cardinals (4-3) used double-figure scoring from seniors Lloyd Stotts (16), Tyler Moss (13) and Matt McDonald (10) and junior Tevin Webster (10) to hold off the Dragons down the stretch.

    TCHS missed only one free throw out of 16 tries while Green County missed four in a row during the fourth quarter despite hitting 14-20 on the night.

    Skyler Shively led the Dragons (2-3 with a three-point home loss to Adair County) with 16 points while Dustin Curry contributed 14 and Brock Milby 12.
