  • What might happen in the 2011...

    The old crystal ball has nearly exploded after its 2-9 record during the early bowl picks. However, it’s brave, or stupid, enough to try another full year of what might happen locally, state-wide or nationally on the sports scene during the next 12 months.
    Remember, once again, don’t take the picks too personal or too serious. You can’t do that when it takes less than 30 minutes from here to the final period in December to accomplish this feat.

  • CHS makes it three straight in...

    What a difference a couple of weeks have made for the Campbellsville High boys’ basketball program.
    After a Friday, Dec. 17 loss at Marion County, Eagles’ head coach Tim Davis called a 7 a.m. Saturday practice.
    CHS played better, not great, to go 2-1 in the T.J. Samson Hospital Holiday Classic at Metcalfe County on Dec. 20-22.

    Taylor County seemed to be cruising along nicely after an 11-0 run put the Cardinals up 39-25 with 5:26 to play.
    But, the Dragons finished the fourth quarter with an 18-4 spurt to tie the game before TCHS prevailed 59-54 in double overtime on Friday night in Greensburg.

  • Lady Cards roll to fifth...

    Taylor County’s Lady Cardinals reeled off their fifth win in the first eight days of the high school hoop season by cruising past Campbellsville 73-24 on Tuesday night in Paul J. Coop Gymnasium.
    The Lady Cardinals (5-0), who won three games in Brandenburg over the weekend, trailed only 2-0 on Brittany Vaught’s basket 15 seconds into the contest.
    However, Hope Wigginton had nine of her game-high 21 points and Alanna Claywell connected on four of her 12 points off the bench and the rout was on.

  • Eagles square record with 51-44...

    Campbellsville tallied eight of the game’s final nine points to edge visiting Taylor County 51-44 on Tuesday night.
    The Eagles (1-1) took a seven-point lead early in the final frame after a Derek Taylor steal to Jaqil Taylor for a lay-up by Jordan Percell.
    However, the Cardinals (1-2) knotted the score on a hoop by Tevin Webster, a free throw and lay-up by Trae Wells and a lane jumper from Chase Seaborne.
    CHS used a Percell putback and a Matthew Davis steal and lay-up to take the lead for good.

  • Cards upset E-town on the road

    What a difference three days make!
    Coming off a disappointing opening-season loss at Washington County, Taylor County rebounded with a 56-54 road win at Elizabethtown on Friday.
    The Cardinals (1-1) trailed the Panthers, who were rated in the top two or three teams in the Fifth Region pre-season polls, by seven in the first half and were still behind four (54-50) with 3:38 to play.
    However, a Tevin Webster lane jumper and a Lucas Bradshaw lay-up on a pass from Chase Seaborne tied the game with 1:44 to play.

  • Shooting for No. 500

    Campbellsville High School head basketball coach Tim Davis enters his 16th season with the Eagles, and his 31st season in coaching overall, needing just three more wins to reach the 500-win plateau.  
    In a time where head coaching positions are seemingly a revolving door, few coaches stay with one program as long as Davis has.
    Davis says that it is the nature of coaches to take one job in hopes that it will lead toward another.
