  • BREAKING NEWS: Tigers ousted...

    For Campbellsville University, making its first trip to the NAIA World Series, baseball has been a game of lost opportunities since it arrived in Lewiston, Idaho.

    The Tigers left 21 base runners stranded in two games (13 on Saturday) and lost 6-5 to Southern Poly State (Ga.). The loss bumped the Tigers from the tournament and Southern Poly won its first-ever World Series game in its third trip to Lewiston.

    Campbellsville led 2-1 and 4-3 but left five runners on base in the last three innings while trying to rally against the Hornets.

  • TC's Thomas and Taylor in...

    Two of the more popular players in recent Taylor County High School athletics were in the news big-time last week.

    Chris Thomas, the Cardinals' all-time leading single-season and career football rusher and scorer, received word he will be a full-fledged walk-on for the University of Kentucky gridiron squad once school starts in August.

    The NCAA has numbers limitations where only so many athletes can practice until school is in session.

  • CHS repeats as district champs

    No. 3-seed Campbellsville scored 13 runs in innings four through six and held off top-seed Taylor County 15-11 on Wednesday night in Lebanon to repeat as 20th District Tournament baseball champions.

    The Eagles (14-12) fell behind 6-2 when the Cardinals (18-15) scored four runs in the bottom of the third.

    Joel Hardesty started the TCHS rally with a solo home run to left-center field and Aylette Cowherd, A.J. Wayne and Levi Smith followed with a pair of singles and a double, respectively.

  • Baseball Tigers lose in World...

    Lee (Tenn.) University used three early home runs to pin a 5-2 loss on the Campbellsville University baseball Tigers in the opening game of the Avista-NAIA World Series on Friday in Lewiston, Idaho.

    The Tigers never overcame the Flames' 4-1 start as the 2008 national runners-up hit three long balls in the first four innings.

    Campbellsville got a home run from catcher Jimmy Voelker in the second and a bases-loaded walk to Brian Chase in the third.

  • CHS qualifies 11 for state track

    Campbellsville High School's boys' team was third and the girls' squad fifth at the Class A, Region 2 Track Meet in Greensburg on Saturday night.

    The squads, coached by Ben Davis and Katie Wilkerson, respectively, qualified 11 members for this weekend's state meet.

  • Lady Cards make it six straight...

    Taylor County High has a pretty good winning percentage in the finals of district softball, winning 15 times in 25 years.

    The Lady Cardinals did it again on Tuesday in Columbia, scoring all the runs they would need (five) in the first inning and rolling past Adair County 11-2.

    It was the sixth straight title for Taylor County and second straight for head coach Kelly Townsend.

    Four hits in the first and two Lady Indian errors opened the floodgates for the Lady Cards. The first three batters bunted and scored as Adair appeared to have early-game fielding jitters.

  • Cards, Eagles post 13-3 opening...

    Taylor County and Campbellsville posted identical 13-3 victories on back-to-back days in the 20th District Baseball Tournament on Dave Hourigan Field at Marion County High School.

    The No. 1-seed Cardinals started things with a six-inning 10-run romp on Monday vs. Adair County.

    Winston Walls went the distance and struck out five and walked none while allowing only three hits and no earned runs.

    After a 0-0 score heading to the third, Taylor County blew the game open with an eight-run frame.

  • Tigers earn NAIA World Series...

    Campbellsville University will be making its first trip ever to the NAIA Baseball World Series after a 4-0 win over Kansas Wesleyan on Friday in St. Charles, Mo.

    Riding the pitching arm of senior hurler Bryan Fuller, who threw 21 consecutive scoreless innings in a 26-hour period, the Tigers won three straight games after a 5-4 loss to the team they beat for the region title.

    Fuller, from Lewisburg, pitched the last three innings against Lindenwood University on Thursday afternoon, nine against Kansas Wesleyan Thursday in an 11-0 shutout and nine on Friday.

  • Lady Tigers find one under the...

    Campbellsville University Lady Tiger coach Ginger Colvin thinks she found a player flying under the basketball radar in Graves County High School's Kayla Hopkins.

    "We got onto her late," says Colvin, "but I think we've found a good, solid prospect."

    Hopkins, according to Colvin, is not flashy but has a solid floor game, can create and gets other players involved. She's also a great student, according to Colvin.

    "She's just what we need."
