  • Cards rooting for Eagles on...

    It’s probably going to be tough, but Taylor County High School fans, parents and players will be borrowing Purple and Gold shakers for at least the next two Friday nights.

    The Cardinals need Campbellsville to defeat McCreary Central and Glasgow to have any shot at the No. 1 seed in the play-offs, which begin on Nov. 14.

  • Late Campbellsville U. rally...

    Campbellsville University mounted a furious comeback in the second half at Georgetown on Saturday before falling just short 51-45 in a matchup of Mid-South Conference East Division football rivals.

    CU scored on the opening possession of the game on a 12-play, 66-yard drive, capped off by Greg Fountain's two-yard touchdown run. David Hon tacked on the PAT kick, and Campbellsville led 7-0 with 9:41 to play in the first period.

  • Campbellsville manhandles...

    Campbellsville High School stopped its three-game losing streak by easily handling visiting McCreary Central 41-8 on Friday night.

    The Eagles used the trio of Thomas Downs, Michael McCubbin and Zach Altman to rush for six touchdowns and a 41-0 half-time cushion.

    Downs started the onslaught with a 16-yard run and then tallied another two-yard score in the first quarter.

    McCubbin tallied from 16 yards out to start the second frame while Altman went in from eight yards before bursting in from one.

  • Fighting Tigers triumph at home

    Down 14-7 at the half, Campbellsville University fought back to post a 35-33 home-field Mid-South Conference victory over Belhaven (Miss.) College on Saturday afternoon on Houchens Insurance Group Field at Ron Finley Stadium.

    It was many of the same group of characters who had carried coach Perry Thomas' team through the first six games as Greg Fountain rushed for 197 yards and two second-half scores while freshman quarterback Ross Deaton tossed two of his three touchdown passes in the 28-point final two quarters.

  • Wiseman resigns as CHS'...

    Herb Wiseman stepped down as Campbellsville High School's head football coach on Monday with two games left in the regular season.

    "I want to thank the Campbellsville Board of Education for the opportunity to lead this proud, tradition-rich program for the last seven years," Wiseman stated in his resignation letter on Monday.

    "It has truly been an honor to coach these young people and watch them grow into young adults.

  • Thomas hopes to be back for play...

    Despite rumors to the contrary, Chris Thomas does not expect his high school football career to be over at Taylor County.

    The Cardinals' super running back, whose attitude is as good or better than his game, got another medical opinion over the weekend in Louisville.

    "They told me if I rested it for 3-4 weeks, then maybe I would be able to play," Thomas said Tuesday night at the 18th District Tournament volleyball championship.

  • Bengals go undefeated, Titans...

    The Bengals finished an undefeated campaign in Senior League play while the Titans closed out with a 5-1 worksheet to take the Junior League title in Campbellsville Community Club Youth Football action.

    Bengals 20, Cowboys 12

    Antonio Barrera’s 3-yard touchdown run gave the Cowboys an early 6-0 lead.

    But, Quentin Goodin pushed the Bengals n top with TD runs of 51 and 90 yards, the latter one as time expired in the first half.

    Conner South’s 1-yard TD in the third period secured the title for coach Homer Veach’s club.

  • Wiseman had uphill struggle from...

    There are only a couple of things a 1974 alumnus of Campbellsville High School would suggest to the administration and any search committee formed to find a new head football coach for the Eagles.

    First, hire someone who the administration and parents both like and want.

    Let's be honest, half the folks wanted Herb Wiseman, but the other half didn't. Wiseman could never overcome the animosity that was there from Day One, no matter how well he or his team performed.

    Secondly, lighten the schedule.

  • Cards clobber Jackson 61-14

    Taylor County High School concluded district play on Friday night with a 61-14 thrashing of Jackson County to send the senior Cardinals out in style.

    The victory leaves coach Rodney Turpin's team with an opportunity to finish in first place, depending on the outcome of district opponents' remaining-regular season games as the Taylor County, Wayne County and Somerset have finished with identical 4-1 district worksheets.

  • Lethargic Eagles flattened by...

    If a team ever needed an off week, it's probably the Campbellsville High School Eagles who were pummeled 47-0 at Marion County on Friday night.

    After a first quarter of "give-away checkers" in which the Eagles threw two interceptions and the Knights coughed the pigskin up twice, CHS (2-6) could not take advantage of a first and goal at the Marion County 9-yard line.
