  • Lady Dragons, Marion boys first...

    Green County used the senior power of Raegan Deaton and Summer Sebastian to capture the girls’ title at the Heartland Athletic Conference Track Meet on Tuesday at Taylor County High School.

    Deaton won the 800- and 1,600-meter runs and was on the 4x-400-relay team, and Sebastian was shot put and discus throws.

    Jasmine Franklin and Natavia Young led Marion County’s second-place showing. Franklin won the 100-meter hurdles and long jump and was on the 4x100-relay unit that placed first.

    Young won the long and triple jumps.

  • CHS softballers can't...

    Campbellsville’s Lady Eagles stayed close with visiting Marion County on Wednesday and LaRue County on Thursday for the first three innings each day.

    However, Marion County used a six-run fourth inning and a six-digit fifth to win 13-1 while LaRue County used an 18-run fourth to shellack the Lady Eagles 22-3.

    Hannah Taylor’s double plated Tiffany Slone, who had singled, for the lone run vs. Marion County while Amythyst McColley had two singles for Campbellsville.

  • Tigers earn top seed in MSC...

    A win or a University of Rio Grande loss was all Campbellsville University needed to win the Mid-South Conference baseball regular season Sunday. The Tigers got both to win a MSC season or tournament title for the sixth straight season. It is the fourth time in six years CU has won the regular season.

  • A 'Wise' one joins the...

    It may have taken 32 years for the 661 victories, but it didn’t take nearly that long to gain the love and respect of her former players and the adoring admiration of a Lady Tiger fan base.

    Just when it was thought that a coach who retired three seasons ago had won virtually every honor a women’s basketball coach could possibly win, Donna Wise, Campbellsville University’s all-time winningest coach, was inducted into The Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame.

  • Lady Cards improve to 14-5

    Taylor County eighth-grader Becca Orberson pitched the first three innings and seventh-grader Hannah Howard the final three as the Lady Cardinals no-hit the visiting Campbellsville Lady Eagles 10-0 on Tuesday at Steve Clark Field.

    Third-sacker Kasey Gribbins paced the Taylor County offense with three hits, including the game-ender, and a walk while Chelsea Nicholas, Cheyenne Moran and Courtney Hunt had two apiece.

    Karrie Cave doubled while Mariah Holmes and Karissa Mings each singled.

  • Winners on and off the diamond

    Ran into Larry “Pee Wee” Gumm at the Taylor County-Marion County baseball game on Thursday, where oldest son Jeff guides the Cardinals, and the first thing that came to my mind was the Wednesday passing of another legendary baseball coach — Paintsville’s Charlie Adkins, the father of Campbellsville University men’s basketball coach Keith Adkins.

    Charlie, who played professional baseball in the Cincinnati Reds’ organization, won 805 games in 34 years. Gumm, the Green County icon, won more than 1,000 games.

  • Cards can't surpass Marion...

    Taylor County’s rally came up one run short and the Cardinals fell at home to Marion County 7-6 on Thursday.

    The Cardinals (11-9) grabbed a 2-0 advantage in the bottom of the first inning on singles by Levi Smith and Blake Dudgeon around a Logan Tucker double.

    However, the Knights (9-6) had five hits to take a 5-2 lead in the second frame and added single runs in the fourth and seventh.

  • CHS Eagles stay on top in 20th...

    The Campbellsville High School Eagles captured 20th District road games at Marion County on Tuesday and at Adair County on Friday to improve to 4-0 in district play with two games remaining.

    Taylor Levi tossed a two-hit shut-out at Marion County on Tuesday as the Eagles won 3-0.

    Levi had seven strike-outs and allowed only one walk.

    Aaron Schwoebel and Bradley Bates had two hits for Campbellsville while Levi doubled and Brett Kearney singled.

    The Eagles improved to 10-7 overall with a 16-3 shellacking at Adair County on Thursday.
