  • Lady Tigers convert down stretch...

    Courtney Danis hit four free throws in the last 15 seconds to seal an 88-84 Campbellsville University Lady Tiger (1-1) victory over Robert Morris (0-1) on Friday night in the Powell Athletic Center.

    Danis led all scorers with 21 points but got good support as three other Lady Tigers scored in double figures.

    The free throws weren't Danis' only heroics as she drained a three-pointer at the intermission buzzer that gave Campbellsville a 44-41 lead.

  • Tigers triumph in roundball...

    If there were any questions surrounding the comeback of Zach Allender after missing last season following knee surgery, the 6-7 senior started answering them on Saturday by posting a double-double as Campbellsville University bested Mid-Continent 78-74 at the Lindsey Wilson College Classic in Columbia.

    Allender had a game-high 22 points and hauled down 10 rebounds to lead the Tigers to the season-opening win in a game that stayed close throughout.

  • Late comeback falls short for...

    For the third straight week, Perry Thomas' Campbellsville University Tiger football team fought hard to come from behind only to see a game slip away by a touchdown as they lost 31-24 at Union College in Barbourville.

    The Tigers trailed 28-10 at the end of the third quarter, and Union tacked on a field goal at the beginning of the fourth period to lead 31-10 before, in almost typical fashion, the Tigers began to roar back.

  • Eagles gallop past Glasgow 40-8

    Campbellsville High School tallied four third-quarter touchdowns and pulled away from visiting Glasgow 40-8 on Friday night.

    The Eagles (4-6) led 13-0 at the intermission after a pair of Aaron Schwoebel touchdown passes - a 54-yarder to Thomas downs and a 31-yarder to Donovan Pittman.

    Glasgow had two first and goals inside the Eagle 10-yard line in the first half, but the Scotties, coached by former Taylor County head coach Bill Lindsey, could not reach pay dirt.

  • Cards conquer Caverna 62-13,...

    Taylor County High School closed regular-season play with an impressive 62-13 victory at Caverna.

    The offensive attack accumulated 509 yards with senior Chris Thomas leading all rushers with 121 yards on eight first-half carries, while junior quarterback Lance Turpin was 13-19 passing for 193 yards and five touchdowns and Leonard Macon had two TDs receiving, one rushing and one on a kick-off return.

    Defensively, the Cardinals forced three turnovers, all leading to scores.

    Head coach Rodney Turpin was complimentary of his team's effort and performance.

  • Second season kicks off tomorrow

    Campbellsville and Taylor County will be facing first-time football opponents tomorrow night when the Eagles host Fairview and the Cardinals entertain Powell County in first-round play-off action.

    TCHS (7-3) has won its last three games and meets the Pirates from Stanton, who are 6-4, in a Class 3-A match-up on Clay Marcum Field at Thomas Porter Stadium.

    Powell County is coached by Mike Whitaker, who played at the University of Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky and also coached Tim Couch at Leslie County.

  • Zach (Allender)'s back for...

    It was May 24, 2007. His team just two months earlier had ended a successful season with a run to the NAIA National Tournament Sweet 16 and a 27-7 record. Zach Allender had been dominant for Campbellsville University in its two games in Kansas City. In fact, he'd been so dominant that he was named to the all-tournament team and tabbed a second-team All-American after averaging 33 points and 16 rebounds in the tournament and 20 points and 9 rebounds for the season.

  • Lady Eagles split home twinbill...

    Campbellsville's eighth graders and Taylor County's seventh graders won games in cross-town girls' middle school hoop action Tuesday.

    Brittany Vaught (17) and Heather Watson (6) combined for 23 points in CMS' 25-20 eighth-grade triumph.

    Becca Orberson had eight for TCMS.

    Hannah Howard's eight points led TCMS past CMS' seventh graders 23-8.

    Campbellsville plays at LaRue and Taylor County visits Lebanon tonight in the Central Kentucky Middle School Athletic Conference Tournament.

  • Taylor scores many ways in 45-30...

    Taylor County High School rushed for two touchdowns, passed for three more, ran an interception back for a score and kicked six extra points and a field goal in downing visiting Hart County 45-30 on Thursday night.

    While it was a week later than Senior Night, it was 12th graders who shined brightly during the Cardinals' sixth win of the season.

    Leonard Macon tallied three touchdowns, two receiving and one rushing, while accumulating 249 of TCHS' 456 total yards.

  • Patriots hold off CU Tigers 34-27

    Campbellsville University dug holes of 14-0 and 34-14 and could not overcome the deficits in dropping a 34-27 football decision to eighth-rated Cumberlands on Saturday.

    Greg Fountain continued his stellar season with 148 rushing yards and two touchdowns while freshman Ross Deaton passed for 233 yards and two fourth-quarter scores.

    Tyler Guess and Jacob Wallace paced the CU defense with 18 and 12 tackles, respectively, while Dwight Houston and Trapper Williams had nine hits apiece.
