  • Cross country teams ready for...

    With the regular season starting Monday, cross country season is the last of the fall sports to get started.

    Campbellsville and Taylor County both start their seasons today in the all-comers meet at Green County.

    Here’s a brief look at both teams:

     

    Taylor County

  • Eagles feel another region title...

     

    In his six years in charge of the Campbellsville football program, Dale Estes has never shied away from making a tough schedule for his Eagles.

    Last season, Campbellsville opened with five straight games against bigger schools – Class 2-A member Washington County, 3-A opponent Casey County, 4-A and crosstown rival Taylor County, before ending with 2-A Green County and Monroe County.

  • Campbellsville appears loaded...

    A year after winning the school’s first region football championship in 19 years, one might think the Campbellsville Eagles would be going through a rebuilding this season.

    The thing is, the Eagles don’t rebuild, they just reload.

    Campbellsville returns all but seven players from 2017, when the team won the Class 1-A, Region 1 title to go with region crowns in 1977 and 1998.

    With so much talent back and sheer speed at every position, the Eagles aren’t expecting it be another 19 or 20 years before their next region title.

  • Irvin does it all for Cardinals

     

    Grant McQueary loves hearing DeJhon Irvin’s number called in the huddle.

    No matter where the Taylor County Cardinals are on the field, the senior quarterback believes the senior running back will take it to the house every time he touches the ball.

    That’s just how confident McQueary is in Irvin, who returned to football last year after sitting out since his seventh grade year.

  • Cards look to be better in year...

     

    Heading into the second season under coach Jason Foley, expectations are soaring around the Taylor County football program.

    The Cardinals have a much better grasp of Foley’s system on both sides of the ball, leading players and coaches alike to believe big things are in store for 2018.

    Taylor County went 7-4 in its first year under Foley, who got a bit of a late start after being hired in May 2017 to replace Dudley Hilton.

  • Lady Cards want region title

    The Taylor County Lady Cardinals aren’t focusing on wins and losses this season.

    They aren’t worried about what happens in the 20th District or 5th Region.

    Instead, Taylor County is focusing on one thing above all else: staying together as a team throughout the season and letting the chips fall where they may.

  • Lady Eagles hope region drought...

     

    After watching Campbellsville’s girls’ basketball team end a 16-year drought of qualifying for the 5th Region Tournament this past winter, senior Selena Ritchie wants the volleyball program to be the next to have a drought-busting season.

    The Lady Eagles have never made it to the region tournament in team history, something they think they can change this year.

  • Three TCHS athletes compete at...

     

    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...

     

    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.
