  • Lady Dragons lead all but once...

    Taylor County's Lady Cardinals held only one lead and fell 55-32 at home to Green County on Tuesday night.

    Taylor County took the lead in the second as Cayla Rucker scored and MeLeigha Pollock hit a three-pointer. Megan Peake's free throw gave the Lady Cardinals its lone lead with 6:15 left in the half.

    Raegan Deaton's trey and Micah Jones' two steals and lay-ups started the Lady Dragon onslaught with Megan Hartfield and Kelsea Mitchell combining for 30 points for coach Chris Blaydes' team.

  • CU Tigers notch 15th, 16th...

    Campbellsville University placed six players in double figures and cruised past IU-East 111-72 on Saturday afternoon in the Powell Athletic Center.

    Starters Nestor Colmenares (17) and Bubba Long (16) led the scoring onslaught playing 22 and 17 minutes, respectively, while Hristo Petkov (13), Troy Harris (12), Deveon Jenkins (11) and Clint Graham (10) put up their totals in 64 combined minutes.

    The Tigers (16-3) also downed Brescia on the road Tuesday night and will host OSU-Mansfield this Saturday at 7:30.

  • Lady Tigers fall in OT at IU-...

    Abbey Freeman nailed two treys in overtime to propel Indiana University South Bend to an 83-79 victory over Campbellsville University on Saturday afternoon.

    IU South Bend led by as many as 22 points before the Lady Tigers went on a furious second-half rally to force the overtime period.

    Freeman finished with 13, while Jen VanderZanden scored 20 points, to lead the Titans (11-6). Evva Comans contributed a double-double with 16 points and 14 rebounds, and Cortney Flanigan was 12 for 16 from the line, scoring 18 points. Niki McDonald dropped in 11.

  • Casey girls, E-town boys first...

    Casey County waltzed through the girls' tournament while Elizabethtown upended Taylor County for the boys' title in the 13th Annual Coca-Cola/Campbellsville University Holiday Classic last week at Campbellsville High School.

    The Lady Rebels won their three games by a total of 85 points, which included a 57-31 triumph over Clinton County in the championship tilt.

    Taylor County's Lady Cardinals finished third for the fourth consecutive year while the Lady Eagles of Campbellsville went 0-3.

  • 2007 Sports year in review

    The sports year was happy and sad on the local front as coach Donna Wise retired and Ginger Colvin took the reigns.

    Some things also remained about the same as Taylor County High's softball and baseball teams continued to rack up district crowns, Campbellsville's baseball team kept rolling in the All "A" and Campbellsville University men's basketball, baseball and softball stayed in the national championship hunt.

    Here's just a sampling of what happened in 2007 on the local sports scene.

  • Lady Tigers triumph twice

    Freshmen Melly Heaton and Courtney Danis sparked the Campbellsville University Lady Tigers to wins over Dillard and Harris-Stowe in the Holiday Inn Express Holiday Hoops on Tuesday and Wednesday in the Powell Athletic Center.

    The Lady Tigers (8-5) raced out to a huge lead vs. Dillard on Tuesday night and held on for an 88-81 triumph.

    Heaton, from Caldwell County, nailed eight of her 13 three-point attempts and finished with 26 points in a 22-minute reserve role.

  • Deaton is Thomas' first...

    New Campbellsville University head football coach Perry Thomas did not have to look far for his initial signee when he inked one of the most famous last names in Central Kentucky with Somerset quarterback Ross Deaton on Thursday.

    Deaton, who did not play this fall, threw for 3,726 yards and 43 touchdowns to lead the Briar Jumpers to a 9-5 record in 2006 before being eliminated by eventual Class A state champion Newport Central Catholic.

  • CU move still making buzz around...

    I'm not exactly sure when Santa Claus is arriving in Campbellsville. But one thing I know for sure is that the Campbellsville University hiring of Perry Thomas as its next head football coach still has the community talking.

    The former Campbellsville High School head coach and, until last week, Paducah Tilghman football boss should be back in town today and hopes to make permanent residence the first week of January.

    The question on the street seems to still be "I'm glad they hired Perry Thomas."

  • CHS comes back from double-digit...

    Campbellsville High School's Eagles overcame several double-digit deficits but could never take a late lead and fell at home to Green County 75-70 on Tuesday night.

    The Eagles (2-4) trailed 40-26 at the half and were behind 61-49 going to the final period.

    However, coach Tim Davis' squad used a 17-5 run to start the final frame and knotted the score at 66-66 on Antwan Coulter's three-point hoop with 2:37 remaining.
