  • 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.

    Campbellsville University will open the 2010 season in February where 2009 left off — ranked No. 9 in the NAIA Baseball Coaches’ Poll. The Tigers have 503 points in the 2010 preseason poll released Tuesday.

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

    Cassie Yannelli made the shot and Erin Grimsley saved the shot on goal, and the Campbellsville University women’s soccer team advanced 3-2 in a shoot-out over Bluefield College on Saturday afternoon.

    The win allows the Lady Tigers to meet King College in the semi-finals of the National Christian College Athletic Association regional this Friday in Covenant, Ga.

  • Tiger gridders conclude season...

    Campbellsville University closed out its football season with a 31-17 road victory at Pikeville College on Saturday.

    It’s the first season with seven or more wins since 2003.

    “It’s another growing step in our program,” CU head coach Perry Thomas said. “I’m proud of the guys. I’m proud of the school and the community for their support.”

    Campbellsville struck first when David Mason caught a 28-yard pass from Nathan Cooper to the Pikeville 3. He finished the drive by punching in a 3-yard touchdown.

    Raceland scored the first 10 points, but trailed 20-10 before tallying the final 13 points to prevail 23-20 over Campbellsville on Friday night in Class A football play-off action at Dave Fryrear Field.

    After a scoreless first quarter, the Rams (8-4) struck first when Bobby McKee’s 20-yard punt return set up a Tyler Farley to McKee 23-yard connection.

    Rocky Jobe’s point-after kick and later 25-yard field goal put Raceland up 10-0 with 6:04 left in the half.

    The Campbellsville University women’s basketball squad improved its record to 3-0 with road wins on Friday and Saturday in Illinois.

    Mackenzie Lee hit two of her eight free throws (her only points) with 0.3 seconds to go as the Lady Tigers survived 77-75 Friday night vs. Robert Morris University.

    Whitney Ballinger led CU with 20 points while reserves Corin Dunn (10 points, nine rebounds), Megan Isaacs (12 points, five rebounds) and Lee played key roles.

    The Lady Tigers dispatched St. Francis 82-73 in Joliet, Ill. on Saturday to keep their season perfect.

  • Raceland favored vs....

    Despite being the No. 1 seed and the host squad, the Campbellsville High School Eagles are considered underdogs in their second-round play-off game vs. the Raceland Rams.

    Despite identical records, the Courier-Journal’s Litkhenhous ratings have Raceland as a six-point favorite while the Herald-Leader’s Cantrall ratings have the Rams 7.5 points in front of the Eagles. Raceland was also rated ninth in Class A in the final Associated Press poll last week.

    Campbellsville University trailed Roberts Wesleyan College by three points, 8-5, in the first five minutes of the game, until Joe Robinson scored five straight points on two buckets and a free throw to give the Tigers a 10-8 lead.

    The Tigers never looked back, taking a 33-23 lead into half-time and leading by as many as 24 late in the game, as CU beat RWC 83-61 in the Lindsey Wilson Classic on Saturday.

  • Eagles advance to second round

    Campbellsville High School seized an early lead in its opening-round playoff game Friday night and never looked back as the Eagles marched into round two with a 47-0 shutout of Nicholas County.

    “We had an unbelievable week of preparation and it showed tonight,” CHS head coach Jason Chappell remarked.

    After holding Nicholas County on its opening series, Aaron Schwoebel connected with Bryton Taylor on a 20-yard corner route to start the scoring.
