    Tevin Webster was in foul trouble against Washington County and had 38 points.

  • Eagles go to 6-2 with 56-44...

    Campbellsville used a 15-7 run to end the first quarter and never looked back in disposing of host Barren County 56-44 in the third-place game of the T.J. Samson Hospital Holiday Classic on Wednesday night.

    Aaron Schwoebel’s three close baskets and three more hoops by Bryton Taylor ignited coach Tim Davis’ Eagles while Matt Davis had six second-quarter points and 11 in the first half.

    Davis and Thomas Downs had nine rebounds apiece as CHS won the boards 41-19.

    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.”
