  • TCHS boys' golf team 10th...

    Taylor County High School's boys' golf team finished 10th at the Leachman Buick-Pontiac-GMC/KHSAA Boys' State Tournament on Saturday at Bowling Green Country Club.

    Coach David Parsons' Cardinals just made the cut by shooting 322 Friday (only 12 of the 25 teams advanced to day two) and moved up two spots with a 324 on Saturday.

    Senior Dillon Mays paced the Cardinals with a two-day 148, which tied for 10th while Tanner Keeton tied for 53rd (160), Wade Cave and Landon Newton tied for 66th (169) and Nolan Slinker was 78th (178).

  • 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.

    Thomas, who was injured on a "normal" football play at home vs. Green County on Oct. 3, has a complete ligament tear in his ankle.

  • Marion snaps Lady Cards'...

    Taylor County High School was denied its fourth consecutive volleyball district title when the Lady Cardinals fell 25-16, 25-21 to Marion County in the 18th District Tournament finals Tuesday night at TCHS.

    The Lady Cardinals led only once (1-0) in the first set before the Lady Knights reeled off six straight to lead 6-1 and held a 10-3 advantage en route to a 25-16 triumph.

    In set two, Taylor County held leads of 2-0, 5-2, 7-3, 13-10 and 14-12 before Marion County fought to ties at 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 and then tallied seven of the match's final 10 points to prevail 25-21.

  • 2008 U.S. Ryder Cup Team makes $...

    On behalf of the U.S. Team, The PGA of America will distribute $2.6 million to designated charities, the Folds of Honor Foundation and to colleges and universities chosen by the U.S. captain and players.

  • TCHS' Cardinals crush Casey...

    Taylor County High School made it two district wins in a row and ran its season winning streak to three games Friday as they crushed Casey County 51-23 in Liberty.

    Senior tailback Chris Thomas once again led the Cardinal attack as he ran for four touchdowns on the night and had 230 rushing yards on 15 carries.

    His supporting cast provided a special teams' score and two touchdowns through the air.

  • Dragons dump Eagles 40-14 in Cow...

    Campbellsville used a Michael McCubbin kick-off return to stay close, but Green County proved to be too powerful for the Eagles in posting a 40-14 romp in the annual Cow Bowl on Thursday night in Greensburg.

    The Dragons struck on their first possession when coach Mike Griffith's club needed only five plays to go 67 yards.

    A Justin Pendleton pass to Zeth Rogers netted 13 yards before Pendleton kept right for another 12.

  • Bengals, Cowboys and Titans...

    Three teams remained undefeated after week two of Campbellsville Community Club Youth Football.

    In the Senior League, the Cowboys edged the Steelers 12-6 in double overtime while the Bengals improved to 2-0 with a 42-0 thrashing of the Steelers.

    The Cowboys got touchdown runs of 4 and 5 yards by Kendon Young to triumph in two extra periods over the Eagles.

    After a scoreless regulation, Young put the Cowboys up 6-0 before Eagle defenders Hunter Christie and Justice Gregory stopped the conversion try.

  • Second 23 years starts somewhat...

    Friday night ended a 23-year run as sports editor at the Central Kentucky News-Journal. And Saturday began the start of another period of covering sports on the local scene.

    On Friday the 13th, September 1985, a raw sports ed headed to Russell Springs to cover the Campbellsville High at Russell County football game.

    Then editor Richard RoBards kept calling during the week and telling me of deletions from the Eagle attack.

    The CHS bad luck actually began during pre-season drills when first-year head coach David Payne was forced to resign because of a back injury.

  • Panthers punish CU Tigers 50-14

    NAIA No. 5-rated Ohio Dominican built a 36-0 lead en route to a 50-14 whipping of Campbellsville University on HIG Field at Ron Finley Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

    The Tigers avoided the shutout when Greg Fountain tallied from three yards out and then added a Markus Ramsey one-yard touchdown reception from Ross Deaton. Detrick Briggs ran in the two-point conversion.

    Fountain finished with 61 yards on 20 carries while Deaton passed for 141 yards. Russell Parker was Deaton's top receiver with six catches for 54 yards.

  • Lady Cards capture Heartland...

    Taylor County's girls' and Marion County's boys' teams won Heartland Athletic Conference Golf Tournament titles Monday at Campbellsville Country Club.

    Lauren Goodin (75) of Adair County won her third straight medalist honor for the girls while Green County's Grayson Bills (74) took the top boys' spot.

    Ellen Kehoe (85) and MeLeigha Pollock (89) paced Taylor County to its second Heartland team title in three seasons.

    Also on the girls' all-conference team were Green County's Kate Larimore (83) and Leah Judd (88).
