  • Lady Eagle softballers upend...

    Campbellsville's Lady Eagles pushed across two runs in the bottom of the sixth to edge John Hardin 7-6 at home on Thursday night.

    The win, the first for first-year head coach Dale Estes, was spearheaded by the three-hit game of Ashley Bates and the two-hit performances of winning pitcher Danielle Morris, Chelsie Gamboa, Ashley Kessinger and Hannah Taylor.

    Morris, who struck out seven and walked none, also had two runs batted in while Bates, Gamboa, Kessinger and Jessica Cox had one RBI apiece.

  • Holmes does pretty well during...

    John "J.B." Holmes had to finish two holes on Monday in the rain-delayed WGC-CA Championship in Miami before flying "home" to Orlando for the Tavistock Cup.

    The two-day tourney, consisting of members from Isleworth and Lake Nona country clubs, gives more than $1 million to charity.

    But, the big winner on Monday and Tuesday was the 25-year-old Holmes (he turns 26 on April 26).

  • City Lake is open

    The Sportsman Club at City Lake is open for the 2008 season.

    Membership cards cover a family - a man, spouse and children under 16 years. Memberships can be purchased at the bait house.

    The lake will be stocked with all species, both quality and quantity. The bait house has all seasonal live bait and fishing accessories. Hunting and fishing licenses are also available.

    Crappie have been the hottest catch, lost in the 2-pound range. Bluegill are beginning to come around, according to Tom Allen, Sportsman Club president.

  • Assigning secretary needed for...

    The 5th Region Policy Board is accepting letters of interest for the position of varsity boys' and girls' basketball assigning secretary.

    This is for the school year 2008-2009.

    Anyone interested should mail a letter to: Jerry Taylor, P.O. Box 37, Munfordville, Ky. 42765.

    Deadline is Tuesday, April 29.

  • Taylor weightlifters do well

    Taylor County finished in a third-place tie in Class 3A at the Kentucky High School State Weightlifting Meet on March 15 at Central Hardin.

    The Cardinals tied Elizabethtown behind Russell and Spencer counties in a competition with more than 380 participants.

    Junior Chris Thomas paced Taylor County to its high finish by winning the 205-pound weight class with lifts totaling 920 pounds - 340 on bench press and a dead lift of 580 pounds.

    Other Cards performers were:

    - Sophomore Huston Bragg, 14th in the heavyweight class (710, 250-460)

  • Morel mushrooms should be...

    Morel mushrooms should be popping up soon. This year's wet late winter and early spring should lead to a good mushroom crop if warm, sunny days appear over the next few weeks.

    Veteran "shroomers" say a late snow also forecasts more morels, and we met that qualification this year. Hopefully, this will be a good mushroom season as the past several have been less than bountiful.

  • Oklahoma City ends Tigers'...

    If Keith Adkins was looking for an off-season motivational tool, he may have found it.

    Adkins' team's run at a national tournament finals berth was cut short Monday night in Kansas City by Oklahoma City University 78-64. But that didn't take any of the edge off an exciting end to a 26-10 season.

  • Semifinal fever!

    Campbellsville University advanced to the semifinals of the men's National NAIA Basketball Tournament Saturday evening with a 74-69 win over Oklahoma Baptist.

    The Tigers rode the third straight double-double by junior Nestor Colmenares who scored 17 points and pulled down as many rebounds.

    Campbellsville will play Monday night at 9:30.

    See Thursday's CKNJ for more complete details of the Tigers' trail along the championship highway.

  • Tigers upset No. 6 seed Concordia

    Campbellsville University watched a nine-point halftime lead evaporate, but rode the combined 55 points by Bubba Long and Nestor Colmenares to a 72-63 upset victory over Concordia in the first round of the NAIA Division I men's national tournament in Kansas City, Mo. on Thursday.

    "It's exciting to win a game three years (at nationals) in a row, and I hope we're not done yet and not satisfied with that," said winning coach Keith Adkins.

    The Tigers have reached the round of 16 the past three years. Campbellsville played McKendree (Ill.) on Friday afternoon.

  • CU men's golf first in own...

    The Campbellsville University men's golf team captured their Spring Invitational on March 17-18 at the Old Silo Golf Club in Mt. Sterling.

    The Tiger men shot a two-day total of 589 to win the tournament with Cumberland (Tenn.) University the runner-up.

    CU seniors Jeffrey Gumm and Jeff Sullivan each shot a two-day total of 144. Gumm won medalist honors after a three-hole playoff.
