  • Crystal ball sees tough prep...

    The not-so-accurate crystal ball in January picked Campbellsville to “clip” Taylor County 13-12 in high school football and for the Eagles to go 5-5 overall and 1-1 in the play-offs and the Cardinals to go 4-6 and be denied a post-season berth.
    A lot of things have happened since then, but after wiping off more dust, the crystal ball will not let this old prognosticator change his picks much for 2012.
    Here’s a week-by-week look at our local prep teams and what might, but probably will not, happen:

  • CMS begins gridiron slate with...

    Campbellsville Middle School opened its football season with a 14-0 shut-out over visiting Boyle County on Saturday in the Kick-off Bowl on Dave Fryrear Field.
    The Eagles took a 6-0 lead on Stone Williams’ 28-yard touchdown run up the middle.
    Micah Corley made it 12-0 on a four-yard score with Devonte Cubit completing the two-point conversion pass to Corley. Huge gains by Arick Groves and Austyn Thornton set up the CMS scores.
    The swarming Eagle defense allowed only one first down to Boyle County and 30 yards of offense.

  • TCMS football opens with 44-0...

    Taylor County Middle School began its season with a 44-0 romp past Southwest Nelson in the LaRue County Bowl Bash on Aug. 4.
    The Cardinals led 36-0 at the half and the continuous clock was used in the last two quarters. Johnathon Sprowles and Ezra Oliver had two touchdowns apiece for Taylor County while Collin Watson and Lake Burress also tallied touchdowns. Burress also had two two-point conversions and Oliver and Roy Wooley had one apiece.

  • Elk Horn Baptist completes sweep


    Elk Horn Baptist completed its summer softball sweep at Veterans Memorial Park by winnng the Coed Church tournament championship on Tuesday night to go along with their previously-captured Men's Church tourney crown.

    Elk Horn Baptist edged Summersville Baptist 6-5 in the semi-finals before run-ruling Green River Memorial Baptist 14-4 for the title.

  • McCarty was the King Bee

    The passing of long-time businessman Charlie McCarty last week was a sad time for his family and the community. However, it did also stir up some recollections of his sports days.
    McCarty opened then Burger Queen around 1970 and it was a big deal for Campbellsville. He also fielded a softball team — one he was the left-handed catcher on.
    “He would slide head first,” fondly remembered former outfielder Frank Gaskins earlier this week. “He hated losing.”
