  • Lady Cards start district with...

    After a pair of rain-outs last week, Taylor County High School's Lady Cardinalls posted a pair of victories over Adair County at home Monday and at Nelson County on Tuesday to improve to 3-0 in varsity softball.

    After singles by Samantha Lile and Haley Kirtley, the Lady Cardinals scored on a wild pitch in the fifth inning to lead Adair County 1-0.

    However, the Lady Indians tied the score in the top of the seventh on a sacrifice fly and led 3-1 when they tallied two runs in the top of the eighth.

  • Lady Tigers take two from...

    Campbellsville University (17-10, 8-0) added two Mid-South Conference softball wins on Thursday over Lindsey Wilson College (13-10, 3-5).

    The Lady Tigers won game one (5-3) and game two (5-4) to remain perfect in MSC play.

    In game one, Campbellsville scored first in the top of the third and added three more runs in the top of the fifth on a Dana Price solo home run and a two-run homer by freshman Jordan Blair.

    Campbellsville scored another run in the top of the seventh on an RBI double off the left field fence by senior Lauren Wathen.

  • Lady Cardinals perfect in...

    Lauren Cox retired the first 12 batters and Brianne Leach struck out the side in the fourth as Taylor County High School's Lady Cardinals shut out Metcalfe County at home on Monday in Kelly Townsend's first game as head coach.

    The Lady Cards plated single runs in the first and second frames before tallying five in the third and four in the fourth.

    Jennifer England led TCHS by going 3-3 with a triple and a home run. The senior also scored two runs and had 3 RBI.

    Chelsea Nicholas, Becca Cook and Karrie Cave each went 2-3.

  • Lady Eagle softballers upend...

    Campbellsville's Lady Eagles pushed across two runs in the bottom of the sixth to edge John Hardin 7-6 at home on Thursday night.

    The win, the first for first-year head coach Dale Estes, was spearheaded by the three-hit game of Ashley Bates and the two-hit performances of winning pitcher Danielle Morris, Chelsie Gamboa, Ashley Kessinger and Hannah Taylor.

    Morris, who struck out seven and walked none, also had two runs batted in while Bates, Gamboa, Kessinger and Jessica Cox had one RBI apiece.

  • Holmes does pretty well during...

    John "J.B." Holmes had to finish two holes on Monday in the rain-delayed WGC-CA Championship in Miami before flying "home" to Orlando for the Tavistock Cup.

    The two-day tourney, consisting of members from Isleworth and Lake Nona country clubs, gives more than $1 million to charity.

    But, the big winner on Monday and Tuesday was the 25-year-old Holmes (he turns 26 on April 26).

  • City Lake is open

    The Sportsman Club at City Lake is open for the 2008 season.

    Membership cards cover a family - a man, spouse and children under 16 years. Memberships can be purchased at the bait house.

    The lake will be stocked with all species, both quality and quantity. The bait house has all seasonal live bait and fishing accessories. Hunting and fishing licenses are also available.

    Crappie have been the hottest catch, lost in the 2-pound range. Bluegill are beginning to come around, according to Tom Allen, Sportsman Club president.

  • Assigning secretary needed for...

    The 5th Region Policy Board is accepting letters of interest for the position of varsity boys' and girls' basketball assigning secretary.

    This is for the school year 2008-2009.

    Anyone interested should mail a letter to: Jerry Taylor, P.O. Box 37, Munfordville, Ky. 42765.

    Deadline is Tuesday, April 29.

  • Taylor weightlifters do well

    Taylor County finished in a third-place tie in Class 3A at the Kentucky High School State Weightlifting Meet on March 15 at Central Hardin.

    The Cardinals tied Elizabethtown behind Russell and Spencer counties in a competition with more than 380 participants.

    Junior Chris Thomas paced Taylor County to its high finish by winning the 205-pound weight class with lifts totaling 920 pounds - 340 on bench press and a dead lift of 580 pounds.

    Other Cards performers were:

    - Sophomore Huston Bragg, 14th in the heavyweight class (710, 250-460)

  • Morel mushrooms should be...

    Morel mushrooms should be popping up soon. This year's wet late winter and early spring should lead to a good mushroom crop if warm, sunny days appear over the next few weeks.

    Veteran "shroomers" say a late snow also forecasts more morels, and we met that qualification this year. Hopefully, this will be a good mushroom season as the past several have been less than bountiful.

  • Oklahoma City ends Tigers'...

    If Keith Adkins was looking for an off-season motivational tool, he may have found it.

    Adkins' team's run at a national tournament finals berth was cut short Monday night in Kansas City by Oklahoma City University 78-64. But that didn't take any of the edge off an exciting end to a 26-10 season.
