    Henderson struck out eight to earn the win. She allowed six hits, five earned runs and one walk.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Eagles win 5th...

     

    Coach Blake Milby tried everything he could to get his players to wake up Sunday afternoon at Fort Knox High School.

    Playing for the 5th Region All ‘A’ Tournament championship should have been more than enough to shake the Campbellsville Eagles out of their doldrums, but the team slogged through the first three innings against Bethlehem.

  • PREP TRACK: Cardinals, Lady...

     

    The Taylor County boys’ and girls’ track programs earned runner-up finishes during last Thursday’s Heartland Athletic Conference Championship meet at Green County High School.

    The Cardinals scored 121 points, 19 behind champion Green County. The Lady Cardinals, meanwhile, scored 102, which was 57 behind top finisher Green County.

    The Campbellsville girls placed third with 53 points, and the Eagle boys were fourth with 32.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Lady Eagles win...

     

    Behind the pitching of freshman Kenzi Forbis, the Campbellsville Lady Eagles picked up a pair of wins last week.

    Forbis struck out 11 in their 1-0, eight-inning win over 5th Region foe Thomas Nelson on Thursday on the heels of a seven-strikeout night in an 11-4 win over 20th District nemesis Adair County on April 10.

    Forbis was one walk and a hit away from a perfect game against the Generals.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Cardinals, Eagles...

     

    With the change to a new three-game series between 20th District members Campbellsville, Taylor County, Adair County and Marion County, getting off to a great start in district play is imperative this season.

    The Cardinals and Eagles did just that last week, taking 2-of-3 in matchups against the Knights and Indians.

    Taylor County beat Marion County, 13-3 on Thursday and 8-1 on April 10 after dropping a 5-2 decision April 9.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Orberson homer...

     

    John Orberson was sitting dead red.

    The Campbellsville freshman left fielder got the pitch he wanted, a fastball on the inner half of the plate, and he didn’t miss his opportunity.

    Orberson got just enough to clear the fence in right field for a two-run home run in the third inning that proved to be the difference in the homestanding Eagles’ 2-1 win over 20th District nemesis Taylor County Tuesday night.

  • CYCLING: Local cyclists hit the...

     

    Melanie Puryear loves to ride her bike.

    Whether it’s on the trails at Green River Lake State Park or Campbellsville/Taylor County Trail Town, Puryear has developed a love for riding.

    The Campbellsville native has been riding for around eight years and recently joined a group, Two Wheel Tuesdays, that gets together once a week – weather permitting, of course.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Campbellsville...

     

    Ryan Kearney wanted the ball for Friday’s game against the Bardstown Tigers in the opening round of the 5th Region All ‘A’ Tournament.

    The Campbellsville junior left-hander registered a career-best 17 strikeouts as the Eagles beat the Tigers, 6-1 to advance to Saturday’s semifinal round at Fort Knox.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Taylor crushes...

    Diving back into 20th District play fresh off a spring break trip to Florida, Taylor County softball coach Neil Sanders worried his Lady Cards might have a bit of a Sunshine State hangover Monday night.

    Taylor County got off to a sluggish start against archrival Campbellsville, but its offense came to life in the later innings on the way to a 10-0 mercy-rule home victory over the Lady Eagles.

    The Lady Cards (8-2) erupted for eight runs in the final two innings, winning for the fourth time in five games and earning its third mercy-rule win in that stretch.

  • YOUTH BASEBALL: Smith enjoys...

    Dennis Smith was at Miller Park one day about 12 years ago watching his son, Spirit, play a game in the Campbellsville Youth Baseball League.

    Someone from the league approached him, asking if he knew how to fill out a scorebook and if he’d be willing to help out. Smith said he did know how to fill out a scorebook, so he gave it a whirl.

    Fast-forward to 2018, and the 61-year-old Campbellsville resident can still be found at the park on game nights as one of the league’s scorekeepers.
