    Senior Michael McCubbin concluded his Campbellsville High School athletic career by scoring 17 points at the KHSAA State Track and Field Meet at the University of Louisville on May 23.

    McCubbin, who also excelled in football and basketball for the Eagles, finished second in the 400-meter dash (51.49), third in the 200-meter dash (22.69) and sixth in the 100-meter dash (11.33) in Class A competition.

    Ricky Buckner's sixth-place showing in the 800-meter run gave CHS its other three points for a total of 20 and a tie for 13th in the team standings.

  • Lady Cards drop 5-2 semi...

    In regular-season games this year, the Taylor County and Washington County softball teams were separated by one run in a two-game split.

    On Monday in Radcliff, in the first round of the Fifth Region Tournament at North Hardin, the two teams couldn't have been further apart.

    Taylor County used 16 free passes, served up by two Commanderette pitchers, and run-ruled WCHS 12-0 in five innings.

    "Anything can happen, and we certainly didn't expect this," said a dejected Commanderette coach Christy Baker. "Too many errors, walks and no hitting."

  • CU Tigers ousted from NAIA World...

    Campbellsville University was eliminated form the Avista-NAIA World Series on Saturday 6-5 by Southern Polytechnic State (Ga.)

    The Tigers left 21 base runners stranded in two games (13 on Saturday).

    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.

    CHS made it 2-0 in the third when Zach Altman was hit by a pitch, stole second and was singled home by Aaron Schwoebel.

    The Dragons used a double from Chavis McDermott and a single by Justin Givens to cut its deficit to 2-1.

    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.

    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.
