  • CU uses blocked FG to hold off...

    Senior Day is supposed to be a day where senior football players step up big, and homecoming should always be memorable. Senior defensive back Calvin Bini made sure both came true for Campbellsville University on Saturday as he blocked a field goal to secure a 22-21 victory over Faulkner University with 18 seconds left to play.

    With the Tigers holding a narrow lead, Faulkner drove 48 yards in seven plays to set up a potential game-winning field goal try from 37 yards. Bini slipped around the left side and blocked the kick as the Finley Stadium crowd erupted in cheers.

  • Davis scores 24 for CHS

    Matthew Davis might be used to scoring 20 points on the hardwood and getting a couple of steals for the Campbellsville High School hoop team. However, on Friday night the Eagle senior scored 24 points and had two fumble recoveries in the CHS’ 46-6 district triumph at Clinton County.

    Davis, in his first season of varsity football, had been used mainly on defense for Jay Cobb’s club, but on Friday he excelled on both sides of the ball.

  • Few changes in 2011-14 football...

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association approved the football alignment for the 2011-2014 seasons on Monday.

    The alignment could be adjusted after two years, but only have a school would have at least 12 percent loss or gain in enrollment.

    The Board of Control voted to allow these changes to the original proposal:

    u Butler County from District Three to District Two in Class 2A. (Thus, Green County’s district will have four teams (the Dragons, Clinton County, Glasgow and Metcalfe County) instead of five from the original draft.)
