  • PREP ATHLETICS: Gumm steps down...

     

    Jeff Gumm has resigned after 10 years as the athletic director at Taylor County High School.

    Gumm stepped down from the position just after school let out for the summer, and he said Thursday in a text message while on vacation that he felt like it was the “right time” to step away.

    Gumm is not resigning his post as the school’s baseball coach and will be entering his 27th season at the helm in 2019.

  • ATHLETICS: Jones to appear on...

     

    When he was younger, Keaton Jones would go to his grandmother’s house after school and fix himself a snack, and then settle in front of the TV to watch “Ninja Warrior,” a Japanese sports entertainment show.

    It featured a four-stage obstacle course that competitors would try to conquer, and Jones was enthralled by all of the action. He dreamt of getting the chance to do something like it in the future.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Eagles fall to...

    The Campbellsville Eagles have felt doubted from those outside the program all season long.

    But the players refused to listen to the naysayers, never losing belief in what they could achieve in 2018.

    That belief propelled them to win the 5th Region All ‘A’ Tournament and eventually the 20th District Baseball Tournament for the first time since 2013. Then came the 5th Region Baseball Tournament, which many viewed as wide open with three or four contenders for the title.

  • PREP BASEBALL OPINION:...

     

    When you get where you're goin'
    Don't forget turn back around
    Help the next one in line
    Always stay humble and kind

     

    Losing is never fun, especially when it’s the last game of your career.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Taylor falls in...

     

    For the second time this season against the Green County Dragons, the Taylor County Lady Cardinals dug themselves a big hole.

    And for the second time this year, the Lady Cards nearly climbed all the way back.

    They just ran out of time Monday afternoon at Marion County.
