  • All region baseball champs go to...

    There's an old saying that if you keep a tie long enough it will come back into style. That will be the case with state tournament baseball.

    For 2010, all 16 regional winners will advance to Applebee's Park to compete for the championship and the semi-state will be eliminated.

    The regional tournament will start Memorial Day with second round action that Thursday and the finals the following Tuesday, giving everyone a week and a half to play their regional tournament. The single elimination state tournament with all 16 teams would start that next Monday.

  • Macon making way to U of L for...

    Taylor County High School graduate Leonard Macon will be heading to Louisville to enroll in classes and play football at the University of Louisville.

    “They’re looking at me as a wide receiver and maybe to return kick-offs,” Macon said on Friday while watching the final game of the All “A” Basketball Shootout at Campbellsville High School.

    Macon said he is supposed to be at U of L on July 10 and the coaches tell him he has an excellent chance to earn a scholarship.

  • Curley, Chase named NAIA second-...

    Chris Curley and Brian Chase, both juniors on Campbellsville University's 39-12 NAIA World Series team, have been named to the 2009 NAIA Baseball All-American Second Team.

    Curley and Chase are the only players from a Mid-South Conference team to receive the honor this year.

    Seventeen position players are named to the First and Second teams. Thirty-four players, without specific position consideration, are chosen on the Honorable Mention team.

  • CU player named NAIA's...

    Not all baseball recognition comes because of what you do between the lines.

    Nathan Quesenberry, a senior from Elizabethtown, was named the Champion of Character for all of NAIA baseball when a coaching committee voted him to the honor from among nine other players at the NAIA World Series.

    "He's just a great kid," said his coach, Beauford Sanders. "Certainly very deserving of the honor."

  • Former Tiger players, coaches...

    God is first. Family is second and football is third.

    This is former Campbellsville University's football coach Ron Finley's philosophy, and former players repeatedly echoed it during an endowed scholarship dinner in his honor on Friday at Winters Dining Hall.

    About $3,000 was raised during the dinner, according to Chuck Vaughn, director of the Big Maroon Club, who was in charge of the event.

    Finley started football in 1987, after a 30-year absence at CU. He coached that first junior varsity team in 1987 and coached varsity until 2002.
