  • Lady Cardinals' depth a concern for Peterson

    Depth and youth are the two biggest concerns for Taylor County coach Tim Peterson, who’s entering his fourth season in charge of the Lady Cardinals.

    Taylor County will only have 12 to 13 players on the varsity roster, and Peterson said his team won’t have much experience outside the starting five of seniors Shay Mitchell and Danielle Sublett, junior Ciara Mosely and sophomores Emma Maynard and Avery Smith.

  • Lady Eagles have young team

    This will be the youngest team in Anthony Epps’ three seasons coaching the Campbellsville Lady Eagles.

    Four of the team’s top eight players are freshmen or sophomores, but Epps doesn’t view that as a negative.

    “I’ve got a young, young team, but we’ve got to find a way to fight and make these games respectable to where we give ourselves a chance at the end,” he said.

  • Eagles look to build on last season


    The Campbellsville Eagles caught lightning in a bottle last season, advancing to the semifinals of the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament.
    Veteran coach Tim Davis doesn’t see any reason why the Eagles can’t reach higher this season.

    Campbellsville returns a slew of talent and will have a pretty deep bench this year, with several players eager to contribute.

  • Cards ready for season under Gumm


    Taylor County senior TreVon Smith and junior Nick Knifley walked into the Cardinals’ locker room for practice one day last week, and they saw baseball coach Jeff Gumm diagramming plays on the white board.

    They at first thought Gumm was messing with them, but it turns out there was a good reason he was there at that time.
    Gumm had just been named Taylor County’s interim coach following the resignation of Maze Stallworth, and he was hoping to get a quick start with his new team.

  • Cards, Eagles make Brockman proud

    Bobby Brockman was looking down and smiling Friday night.

    It was a big night in this town, with both the Campbellsville Eagles and Taylor County Cardinals vying for region championships in the KHSAA state football playoffs.

    Both came away victorious, with Campbellsville claiming its second straight Class 1-A, Region 1 title and Taylor County earning its first region crown in 19 years by winning Class 4-A, Region 2.

    Brockman, the former longtime sports editor of the Central Kentucky News-Journal, was no doubt smiling about both teams’ success.

  • Cardinals rally past Moore, 22-17


    Grant McQueary wasn’t sure he’d get another chance.

    Taylor County’s senior quarterback was intercepted with just over 3 minutes left in Friday’s Class 4-A, Region 2 championship game against Louisville Moore, and McQueary sat alone on the sideline as the Mustangs tried to run out the clock.

    But redemption would soon find its way to McQueary and the Cardinals.

  • Eagles win second straight region football title


    The old adage says defense wins championships, and that’s exactly what the Campbellsville Eagles relied on Friday night to carry them to their second straight Class 1-A, Region 1 championship.

  • Stallworth steps down


    After two seasons at the helm, Maze Stallworth stepped down Monday morning as head coach of the Taylor County Cardinals boys’ basketball team.

    The announcement was made Monday morning and confirmed by Taylor County Schools Superintendent Junior Higdon.

    Stallworth said a job opportunity came along that was too good to pass up.

  • Cards' offensive line paves way


    Wes Oliver believes he has the best offensive line in the state paving the way for him and Taylor County’s stable of running backs.

    The sophomore tailback is always quick to credit the linemen when he scores a touchdown, because he knows how difficult things would be without them leading the way.

  • Taylor shuts out John Hardin


    The Taylor County Cardinals turned in one of their more impressive games of the season Friday night in the second round of the Class 4-A playoffs.

    Taylor County limited visiting John Hardin to just 90 yards of total offense in its 23-0 win to advance to the region championship game.
