  • Three TCHS athletes compete at national meet

     

    Three Taylor County High School track & field athletes got to compete on the national stage last week, traveling with the Hardin County-based Kentucky Elite to Drake University for the AAU Junior Olympic Games.

    Ryan Maynard, Dalton Nunn and Natalie Reynolds represented Taylor County from July 29-Aug. 4, and all three brought home at least one medal.

    Maynard was second in the boys’ 15-16-year-old 2,000-meter steeplechase, finishing in 6:32.06.

  • Parks, Cardinals continue hot start

     

    Senior Cooper Parks and the Taylor County boys’ golf team remained hot, picking up yet another win in Saturday’s Battle at the Bridge invitational at Old Bridge Country Club in Danville.

    The University of Kentucky-bound Parks fired a 9-under 63 to win medalist honors and lead the Cardinals to the team title. Parks won the title by five shots over Louisville St. Xavier’s Drew Doyle, the defending event champion, and Covington Catholic’s Patrick Kennedy.

  • Eagles have tons of production to replace

    Campbellsville boys’ soccer coach Bradley Harris has to replace seven seniors from last season, including leading goal scorer Ethan Lay and his 21 goals, but the Eagles’ cupboard is far from bare.

    Leading the cast of returnees in 2018 are seniors Daniel “Dbo” Johnson and Brody Weeks and junior goalie Brennon Wheeler.

  • Offense to carry Lady Cardinals

     

    The Taylor County Lady Cardinals might be relying more on their offense than the defense to carry the load this season under coach Brian Meier.

    Taylor County lost three defenders to graduation – Megan Canada, Autumn Evans and Sara Grimsley – and Meier hopes the offense will be able to carry the team until the defense finds its footing.

    “Their speed and experience will be hard to replace,” Meier said.

  • Cardinals aiming for another district title

    The Taylor County Cardinals are starting over with a new coach, but Josh Goode is ready to get things going for the defending 18th District Soccer Tournament champions.

    To keep their perch, they’ll have to replace a ton of production from last season.

    Of the Cardinals’ 109 goals scored last season, 96 came from players who aren’t returning in 2018. And of their 69 assists, 52 came from departed players. Will Miller, a 2018 graduate, accounted for 72 goals and 13 assists as Taylor County went 13-5-1 in 2017.

  • High school golf teams prep for season

    Two tournaments into the high school golf season, and the Taylor County Cardinals are off to a rip-roaring start.

    The Cardinals picked up a pair of wins last weekend, taking home titles in their own Big Daddy Cardinal Classic on Saturday and dominating the field for a 16-stroke victory in Friday’s Lexington Lafayette Five Star General Invitational.

    Taylor County finished third in the state tournament last season and is looking for even better results in 2018 with a wealth of talent back.

  • Cardinals' Coyle wins Cardinal Classic

     

    Luke Coyle had to sweat it out a little bit Saturday afternoon, having let a few birdie putts slip away on the back nine during the Big Daddy Cardinal Classic at Campbellsville Country Club.

    But the Taylor County eighth grader had just enough to finish off his first high school victory.

    Coyle shot a 2-under 70, holding off Louisville St. Xavier’s Andrew Sullivan by one shot to win the individual title.

  • Taylor County's Cooper Parks is at home on the golf course

     

    Cooper Parks didn’t know what to think when his dad, Scott, bought a set of golf clubs for him and his twin brother, Tanner, for Christmas one year.

    For six months, those clubs sat, unused, in the den of the Parks’ home until dad told his sons he was going to sell them. Cooper and Tanner were indifferent to what their father was about to do, unsure if they even wanted to give the sport a try.
