    The Maroon squad jumped out to a 14-0 lead after the defense recovered a fumble for a touchdown romp. But, the White team fought back behind several big pass plays from Deaton and led 22-14 before the Maroon team scored again late in the game.

  • Lady Eagles win first five...

    Coach Carol Tucker's Campbellsville High School Lady Eagles' tennis team won their first five matches of the season while her Eagle boys' squad went 2-3.

    The girls' unit has bested Washington County twice and North Hardin, Bardstown and Adair County.

    The boys' contingent owns two team wins over Washington County.

    Meredith Haley paces the Lady Eagles with five singles' wins while the doubles' teams of Alison Medders/Ashley Phillips and Ariel Milby/Summer Montgomery also started with 5-0 worksheets.

  • 1974 grad still enjoying...

    Just to show how old I and the class of 1974 are getting, there wasn't a girls' basketball team when we graduated in 1974.

    The sport which was halted decades earlier (matter of fact Sue Smith's mother was a stand-out) started back again for the 1974-75 campaign.

    At least one local young lady didn't get a chance to display her skills while still in high school.

    She did go on to play at Western Kentucky University and probably goes down as one of the best female athletes ever produced in Taylor County.

  • Lady Eagles third at Greenwood...

    Coach Katie Wilkerson's Campbellsville High School Lady Eagles finished third (behind Greenwood and West Jessmaine and ahead of Warren Central and Franklin-Simpson) at the five-team Greenwood Ribbon Invitational on Saturday in Bowling Green.

    Eighth-grader Kelsey Feltner paced the Lady Eagles by winning the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes and also being on the second-place 4x100- and 4x-200-meter relay teams (along with Danika Smith, Erica Crider and Stephanie Cowherd).

    Smith was second in the 100 dash while Crider was fourth in 100 hurdles and Baker fourth in the discus.

  • Eagles clobber Cardinals 9-1 on...

    Campbellsville High school took advantage of five Taylor County errors and rolled past the visiting Cardinals 9-1 on Tuesday afternoon.

    After Taylor County failed to score in the first when its first two hitters (Chance Walls and Chase Roution) reached on walks, the Eagles tallied two unearned runs in the second and never trailed.

    Aaron Schwoebel's one-out single moved Taylor Levi, who reached on an error to third where he scored on Adam Simmons' infield single.

    A walk to Kyle Martin loaded the bases and Tyler Finn's free pass made it 2-0.

  • Graham starts efforts to give...

    Clint Graham's basketball eligibility is up on the collegiate scene. Now, the former Taylor County High School, Gardner-Webb and Campbellsville University player plans on teaching some of the things he's learned.

    Graham, who competed against 2008 College Player of the Year Tyler Hansbrough and against current NBA players Travis Outlaw and Al Jefferson, played his final game when the Tigers lost to Oklahoma City in the NAIA Division 1 semifinals last month in Kansas City.
