  • 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.

  • Cards cold in opener at...

    Taylor County never led in and dropped a 54-49 encounter at Washington County in the season opener for coach Troy Young’s Cardinals.
    Taylor County tied the game at 3-3 and 8-8, but fell behind by six (23-17) and seven (26-19) points in the second quarter and trailed 29-25 at the intermission.
    The Commanders increased its advantage to 11 in the third frame and still led 42-34 at the stop despite a Zack Manning top-of-the-key three pointers just before the buzzer.

  • Lady Cards roll over Washington...

    Taylor County’s Lady Cardinals came out of the gate strong and posted a 64-39 road victory at Washington County in their season debut on Tuesday.
    A 10-0 start by coach Jenny Jessie’s club was sparked by five points from Hope Wigginton and two baskets by Elizabeth Thomas.
    The Lady Card lead expanded to 21-4 after first with Wigginton tallying 11 and Thomas six in the frame.

  • Running down the road

    For Campbellsville native Barry Bertram, what started as a way to stay healthy quickly turned into a way of life. Bertram has run more than 40,000 miles since 1977.
    That is far enough to circle the earth and then run across the United States five times.
    He knows how far he has run because, for the last 33 years, he has recorded how many miles he ran each day.

  • Campbellsville University Nov....

    Bethel returns favor, beats Lady Tigers in last minute, 66-65
    Ginger Colvin is a former elementary school teacher, so she knows a little something about quizzes when gauging student progress. She also knows you can’t use trick questions.
    Her women’s basketball team had received solid marks following the Lady Tigers’ first two games, winning both by an average margin of 60 points. But Saturday her squad stepped up in class in McKenzie, Tenn., and CU got its first real test against No. 19 Bethel University.
    Bethel 66, Campbellsville 65.

  • Holmes ends up one shot short of...

    Despite playing with an injured shoulder from Saturday’s round, Campbellsville’s John “J.B.” Holmes came down to Sunday’s last hole, No. 9, with a chance to finish in the top 30 in money on the 2010 PGA TOUR list.
    However, Holmes, who basically played “one-armed” the last two rounds, finished in a tie with Heath Slocum and placed 31st after the season-ending tournament.
