  • Three district champs fall at...

    It's normally an advantage to win the district tournament championship game. But, don't try telling that to three of the teams who won those titles on Friday, but were eliminated on Monday and Tuesday in the first round of the Fifth Region Girls' Tournament at North Hardin.

    The upset trend began when 19th District runner-up Nelson County bested 18th District champion Green County 74-67 on Monday in the tourney's first game in Ron Bevars Gymnasium in Radcliff.

  • Compton coming to CU for Lady...

    Less than 24 hours after leading her John Hardin team to a home upset over Marion County, Lady Bulldog 5-5 point guard Keisha Compton signed with coach Ginger Colivn and the Campbellsville University Lady Tigers.

    "I liked how the campus was set up," Compton said of her decision to sign with CU. "It's small and it's close to home.

    "I also liked the way they play. They run and that fits me well.

    "I looked at some other schools, but none of them excited me the way Campbellsville did."

  • Lady Tiger trio combines for 80...

    Freshmen Courtney Danis (38) and Melly Heaton (26) combined for 64 points and sophomore Kristi Ensminger added 16 as the Campbellsville University Lady Tigers downed West Virginia Tech 91-81 on Saturday afternoon.

    The Lady Tigers (15-10), who trailed 68-64 with eight minutes left in the game, used four points (two free throws and a basket) and a Heaton hoop to take the lead for good at 6:13.

    Danis' three-point play and Heaton's trey pushed the CU advantage to six and the Lady Tigers never led by less than three the rest of the way.
