  • Tigers ink 45 new football...

    It was announced on Wednesday that 45 new players will be donning a Campbellsville University Tiger uniform in the fall of 2009.

    Head Coach Perry Thomas says this class is quite strong and should make an immediate impact.

    "We feel really good about the guys we are bringing in," Thomas said. "This class rivals the class we brought in last year. Any time you are building to win a national championship, you have to be able to stack strong recruiting classes back to back and we feel we have done this."

    Chase Cox and Lloyd Stotts hit a pair of free throws each to knot the score at 51-51 with 1:25 to play. However, Adair County used a Corey Helm lay-up, a three-point play from Darren Ballou and eight more free throws to post the triumph.

    Chase Cox led Taylor County with 22 points while Leonard Macon had 13 and Michael Coulter 11.

  • Lady Tigers finish first half of...

    Campbellsville University (21-3, 6-0 Mid-South) started the second half on Thursday with an offensive explosion, and the Lady Tigers outscored the Golden Bears 22-3 to extend their 11-point first half lead to 48-17.

    Campbellsville's Melly Heaton netted 16 points on 6-14 shooting with four of those baskets coming from three-point range to lead the Lady Tigers.

    Ashley Blaney led WVU-Tech (2-20, 0-6) with 12 points while Sharnage Young added 11 for the Golden Bears.

    Three-point baskets by Morehead-bound Darren Ballou and Corey Helm sparked the fast Indian start while Nick Fudge's steal and lay-up began the second quarter.
