  • Eagles wallop Washington

    Campbellsville High School had little trouble in disposing of Washington County 83-52 on Wednesday night in a Touchstone Energy Fifth Region All “A” Classic semi-final game at Caverna.
    The Eagles, who were to play the Bardstown-Caverna winner in Saturday’s title tilt, rode the 20-point effort of Jordan Percell to lead 45-26 at intermission.

  • Microchips help with pet return

    More than a decade ago, two of my English Setter bird dogs disappeared in different incidents. One was never found, the other returned.
    Then several years ago, my two rat terriers escaped from the motor home while parked in a remote section of a campground in North Little Rock, Ark. I spent a sleepless night until they returned just before daylight. Having perts disappear when traveling is especially worrisome.

  • Lady Tigers, St. Catharine...

    The No. 3-rated Lady Tigers (12-2 overall and 5-0 against conference foes) led by nine (35-26) at the break before the pesky Lady Bears (9-5, 0-5) trimmed the deficit to 55-54.
    However, coach Ginger Colvin’s club used a 10-3 run and never looked back as Campbellsville’s charity stripe shooting was paced by Whitney Ballinger’s 14-17 effort.
