  • Former Tiger players, coaches...

    God is first. Family is second and football is third.

    This is former Campbellsville University's football coach Ron Finley's philosophy, and former players repeatedly echoed it during an endowed scholarship dinner in his honor on Friday at Winters Dining Hall.

    About $3,000 was raised during the dinner, according to Chuck Vaughn, director of the Big Maroon Club, who was in charge of the event.

    Finley started football in 1987, after a 30-year absence at CU. He coached that first junior varsity team in 1987 and coached varsity until 2002.

  • McCubbin scores 17 at State...

    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.)

    For the Tigers, their first trip to the NAIA World Series was made up of lost opportunities in Lewiston, Idaho.

    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.

  • Eagles eliminated by 12-2 by...

    Campbellsville never trailed but had to battle Green County to the wire before posting a 5-3 triumph in the final first-round game of the Fifth Region Baseball Tournament at John Hardin.

    The Eagles (15-12) led 1-0 before the first lightning delay on a double by Ben Janes and a Green County balk.

    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.
