  • There will always be just one...

    I often tell the story about how I was so sure between the ages of 17 and 22 that I would never return to my native Campbellsville and Taylor County and would live the rest of my life in Big Orange Country.
    A lot of things, but not all, happen for a reason.
    And, this is a sure-fire case that my moving back to Central Kentucky was a good one for me.
    Not only did I get to meet new folks, I also got to broaden friendships and relationships I wouldn’t have had I stayed in Knoxville.

    Lady Tigers get beat in MSC Tourney ‘if necessary’ tilt
    Campbellsville University forced an if necessary game Saturday, but Lindsey Wilson put away their third straight MSC Softball Tournament championship by scoring nine first-inning runs in the title tilt, winning 20-2.
    The Lady Tigers had won six straight tourney games (after a loss in the opener) to force a second game, taking charge of the morning encounter 11-7 on the shoulders of Courtney Turpin’s seven-hit, complete-game win.

    Lady Cardinals divide games against 18th District softball foes
    Taylor County defeated LaRue County 7-5 on April 26 as Hannah Howard went the first 5 2/3 innings and Karissa Mings recorded the final four outs.
    Haley Franklin’s three-run homer was huge for the Lady Cardinals.
    Last Thursday, Taylor County (21-8) dropped a 2-0 decision at Green County as Kasey Estes struck out 13 for the Lady Dragons while allowing only two hits — a single by Franklin and a double to Hannah Milby.

  • First sighting of Ballinger left...

    Sports editors aren’t the best judge of athletic talent. But, the old saying “a blind squirrel will find a nut ever once in a while” holds true in at least this one case.
    It was December of 2005 when I traveled to Russell County to watch Taylor County play Marion County in a holiday tournament basketball game.
    The game before that pitted Glasgow vs. Carroll County. I found a little interest in that game since the Carroll County coach, Randy Mefford, had played basketball and golf at Campbellsville College.
