  • 2011 Sports year in review

    The championship trophies won locally by Taylor County High School’s boys’ basketball team, the Campbellsville University Lady Tiger basketball squad and the Campbellsville High School baseball squad were just a few of the highlights on the local sports scene in 2011.
    Here’s a month-by-month peek back:

  • What might/could happen in...

    The crystal ball is dusty and quite inconsistent, but it’s still time to predict what might happen on the local, state and national scene this year in sports.


  • Lady Eagles take two of three in...

    Campbellsville High School’s Lady Eagles were only a few seconds away from a perfect weekend, but Buckhorn hit a late three-pointer to edge coach Cameron Jackson’s club 43-42 on Saturday afternoon.
    The Lady Eagles started their own All “A” Invitational with a 46-34 triumph over Whitefield Academy of Louisville on Friday night at Campbellsville Middle School.

  • Lady Tigers trip up ranked teams...

    After beating No.3-ranked Azusa the night before, Campbellsville University’s Lady Tigers had validation on its mind on Dec. 10 when it took on 12th-ranked Bethel in its second game of the Citizens Bank Holiday Hoops Classic.
    And validation it got as the Lady Tigers pulled away in the second half for a 76-57 win, the second in a row over a top-20 team.
    “We didn’t play with a ton of energy in the first half,” head coach Ginger Colvin said, “but I thought we came out and did in the second half.”

  • Tuesday, Dec. 13 high school...

    Riggs and Howard each had eight field goals, with three of Howard’s coming from behind the arc and Riggs hitting four free throws.
    Haley Wright added 12 points for coach Jenny Jessie’s squad.
