    TCHS (7-3) has won its last three games and meets the Pirates from Stanton, who are 6-4, in a Class 3-A match-up on Clay Marcum Field at Thomas Porter Stadium.

    Powell County is coached by Mike Whitaker, who played at the University of Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky and also coached Tim Couch at Leslie County.

  • Zach (Allender)'s back for...

    It was May 24, 2007. His team just two months earlier had ended a successful season with a run to the NAIA National Tournament Sweet 16 and a 27-7 record. Zach Allender had been dominant for Campbellsville University in its two games in Kansas City. In fact, he'd been so dominant that he was named to the all-tournament team and tabbed a second-team All-American after averaging 33 points and 16 rebounds in the tournament and 20 points and 9 rebounds for the season.

    Taylor County High School rushed for two touchdowns, passed for three more, ran an interception back for a score and kicked six extra points and a field goal in downing visiting Hart County 45-30 on Thursday night.

    While it was a week later than Senior Night, it was 12th graders who shined brightly during the Cardinals' sixth win of the season.

    Leonard Macon tallied three touchdowns, two receiving and one rushing, while accumulating 249 of TCHS' 456 total yards.

  • Patriots hold off CU Tigers 34-27

    Campbellsville University dug holes of 14-0 and 34-14 and could not overcome the deficits in dropping a 34-27 football decision to eighth-rated Cumberlands on Saturday.

    Greg Fountain continued his stellar season with 148 rushing yards and two touchdowns while freshman Ross Deaton passed for 233 yards and two fourth-quarter scores.

    Tyler Guess and Jacob Wallace paced the CU defense with 18 and 12 tackles, respectively, while Dwight Houston and Trapper Williams had nine hits apiece.

  • Football play-off scenario update

    While Campbellsville High School knows its first-round play-off opponent (Fairview at home on Nov. 14), it could be around midnight tomorrow before Taylor County knows what's happening with the Cardinals' post-season plans.

    Heading into the final regular-season games, TCHS (13) trails Wayne County (16) and leads Somerset (12) in the three-way Class 3A, Region 5 tie-breaker.

    The Cardinals own wins over Hart County (4), Garrard County (4), Campbellsville (3) and Casey County (2).

  • No. 1 team comes to town

    Pre-season No. 1-rated Union (Tenn.) University used first-half streaks of 5-0, 9-0, 8-0 and 9-2 to build a 10-point half-time cushion and rolled to a 79-52 triumph over Campbellsville University's Lady Tigers in the Powell Athletic Center on Tuesday night.

    Two Alexia Williams three-pointers kept CU close in the first half while treys by Juliana Brown and Kristi Ensminger and two buckets by Courtney Dandis in the second half preceded the Lady Dogs' 12-1 run to finish the game.

    The Lady Tigers host Robert Morris tomorrow at 7 p.m.

  • Tiger men's basketball...

    Coming off of a 26-10 season and the program’s first-ever NAIA Tournament semi-final appearance, Campbellsville University men's basketball coach Keith Adkins has a lot of reasons to be optimistic.

    Despite losing some key players, Adkins’ optimism hinges on the return of All-American Zach Allender, who missed last season with a knee injury, the return of six players from last year's team and a very talented group of recruits who have bolstered Campbellsville's depth in every position.

  • Lady Tiger basketball seeks...

    Ginger Colvin, in her second season as Campbellsville University head coach, hopes to return the Lady Tigers to the NAIA National Tournament in 2009.

    After completing her first season as head coach, Colvin believes her team was close to a return to the NAIA National Tournament last season.

    "We finished 19-13, had five overtime losses and at times had five true freshmen on the floor," recalled the coach about the 2007-2008 season.
