    The Campbellsville Eagles steam rolled their way to the 20th District Baseball Tournament championship last Thursday night.

    Freshman John Orberson led the way, going 4-for-4 with a triple, three RBIs and three runs scored, while junior Ryan Kearney was 2-for-3 with four RBIs and three runs as Campbellsville blitzed Adair County, 16-4 in five innings.

    The Eagles (18-16) won their first district title since 2013, when they beat rival Taylor County for the championship.

    Marion County sophomore Haley Mattingly threw a complete game two-hit shutout as the Lady Knights beat Taylor County, 3-0 in Thursday’s 20th District Softball Tournament championship game.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Cardinals fall in...

     

    The Taylor County Cardinals entered the 20th District Baseball Tournament as one of the top teams in the 5th Region, going a region-best 23-7 during the regular season.

    But in the one-and-done nature of the postseason, anything can happen.

    Top-seeded Taylor County found that out the hard way in Monday’s semifinal against Adair County as junior left-hander Layndon Carter struck out 11 hitters to lead the No. 4 seed Indians to a 4-0 victory at Campbellsville High School.

  • PREP TRACK: Taylor's Mosley...

    Ciara Mosley was on her way home Saturday when a teammate texted her.

    The Taylor County sophomore left the University of Kentucky’s track complex after competing in the shot put during the Class 2-A KHSAA State Track and Field Championships.

    Her teammate texted Mosley to let her know she had just won a state championship.

    Mosley won with a throw of 37 feet, 8 inches – edging Mercer County sophomore Zoe Yeast by 2.25 inches to win the title.

  • PREP TENNIS: Duos fall in first...

     

    It was a short stay in the KHSAA State Tennis Championships for the two area boys’ doubles teams that qualified.

    Campbellsville seniors Cody Davis and Cass Kidwell and the Taylor County junior tandem of Cooper Parks and Tyler Perkins each lost in the first round last Thursday at the Top Seed Tennis Center in Nicholasville.

  • PREP TENNIS: Area duos headed to...

    Taylor County’s Cooper Parks was looking for something to do once high school golf season ended in the fall. Campbellsville’s Cody Davis was preparing to make a move to doubles after three years as a singles player.

    Both seniors helped their teams qualify for the KHSAA State Tennis Championships.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Cardinals remain...

     

    The Taylor County Cardinals are one of the hottest teams in the 5th Region as the postseason nears, having won 10 of their last 11 games to push their record to 21-7.

    Campbellsville freshman John Orberson pitched a perfect game, a bright spot in what was a sluggish week for the Eagles.

    Taylor County went 2-1 the past week, picking up wins over Washington County (7-6) and Casey County (11-1) and falling to region contender North Hardin (2-1).

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Teams hit rough...

     

    It was a rough week for the Taylor County and Campbellsville softball teams, which combined for just three wins the past seven days.

    The Lady Cards went 3-3 and the Lady Eagles were winless in five games.

  • PREP BASEBALL/SOFTBALL: District...

     

    Postseason play is nearly upon us, and area coaches know anything can happen at this point in the year.

    Monday kick starts a “new” season, one where every team gets a clean slate and a fresh start.

    The 20th District baseball and softball tournaments are set to be hosted by Campbellsville this season, and the atmosphere is revved up.

  • PREP SPORTS: Several area...

     

    Several athletes from Campbellsville and Taylor County high schools were recognized Monday by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s new “Triple Threat Award.”

    The award honors those athletes who compete in sports during the fall, winter and spring for their schools. The award is the latest attempt by the KHSAA to de-emphasize sports specialization.
