  • Eagles, Lady Knights should win...

    A pair of local basketball teams should be in the thick of the battle for Fifth Region championships as the high school roundball seasons begin tonight in the commonwealth.

    Campbellsville High School’s boys, along with North Hardin and Elizabethtown, are the three favorites to succeed Adair County as the region’s best come March in Greensburg.

    Coach Tim Davis’ Eagles are led by seniors Bryton Taylor and Thomas Downs, both rated as Top 10 players in the region.

  • CHS duo, TC quarterback have...

    The old saying “records are meant to be broken” has surely held up in the last couple of years in local high school football.

    Taylor County, despite winning its only regional title on the gridiron in 1999, claimed its first all-out district crown last season.

    And despite Campbellsville’s winning a regional championship in 1998, the Eagles established more individual records during the just-completed campaign.

    Leonard Macon caught 50 passes for 986 yards and scored 166 points in his only season as a Cardinal.

    Coach Beauford Sanders’ Tigers finished the 2009 season with a 39-12 record and its fifth-straight Mid-South Conference Championship.

    CU went on to advance to the NAIA World Series for the first time in program history.
