  • Local teams have hands full in...

    As Campbellsville and Taylor County get ready to begin district play next week, the Eagles and Cardinals have extremely tough football clashes at home.

    CHS hosts Green County tonight (8:00) in the annual Cow Days Bowl on Dave Fryrear Field.

    The Dragons are coming off a one-point loss to LaRue County but still rank as one of the best teams in Class AA.

    Campbellsville has won 30 of the 46 games in the series. However, Green County has won the last three — 42-12 in 2006, 51-0 in 2007 and 40-14 last season.

  • Cards notch third win in 21...

    1993 (22-21), 2003 (35-13) and 2009 (28-27).

    Those are the three seasons Taylor County has managed a victory over Washington County in 21 tries, and all three of them came in Springfield.

    The one on Friday night started out like it would be an easy road romp as the Cardinals led 28-0 with 4:01 left in the first half.

    However, missed extra points enabled Taylor County to hold off the Commanders and post the 28-27 triumph on Friday night.

  • CHS squares record with...

    The Campbellsville Eagles moved to .500 on the season with a solid defensive performance in triumphing 20-14 at Bethlehem on Friday night.

    “They are a good football team,” Eagle coach Jason Chappell offered. “Our defense played hard, but there are still things we didn’t do right. However, we gave great effort and I’ll take an ugly win over a pretty loss any day.”

  • CU loses on road to Carson-Newman

    For 28 minutes of football, Carson-Newman College had its work cut out Thursday night, as the Campbellsville University Tigers pulled within a touchdown of the NCAA Division II perennial power.

  • Eagles take cross-town game

    Coach Rodney Turpin said a key for success would be to keep from giving up the big play.

    Campbellsville (1-2) quickly demonstrated his concern was valid when Joe McKenzie returned the opening kickoff 94 yards to get the Eagles on the board 12 seconds into the game. The Eagles would use timely conversions throughout the night to frustrate their rivals.

    After an opening three-and-out series, the Cardinals fell victim again, as Thomas Downs converted on third down from 53 yards out to give the Eagles a 12-0 lead only 3 minutes into the contest.

  • CHS' Murrell and boys...

    Campbellsville High School Lady Eagle senior Morgan Murrell qualified for the state tourney while the Eagle boys' team placed third at the Touchstone Energy Fifth Region All "A" Classic Golf Tournament last month at Campbellsville Country Club.

    Murrell shot a 95 to qualify for the Sept. 12 All "A" Classic State Tournament and the Green County girls won the team title at region.

  • Lady Cardinal golf team captures...

    The Taylor County High School girls' golf squad of Carlie Hazel, Meredith Scalos, MeLeigha Pollock, Hannah Reynolds and Ellen Kehoe captured the 10-team Grayson County Invitational on Aug. 22 at the Falls of the Rough LaFayette Golf Club.

    Kehoe was runner-up in the event after shooting a 76 and tying with Sammi Smith of Assumption and Kayla Kincher from Elizabethtown.

    Scalos finished eighth (81), Pollock 12th (87), Reynolds 13th (89) and Hazel 17th (91) as the Lady Cardinals (333) finished in front of second-place Breckinridge County.

  • Friday's score might be 22-...
