  • 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

  • Montgomery says she's no...

     

    For the first three years of her high school career, Taylor County volleyball coach Stephen Zink estimates he’s had Taegan Montgomery in his office 20 to 30 times.

    It wasn’t for anything Montgomery had done wrong, but one thing Zink questioned was her attitude. It wasn’t always the best.

  • Ritchie ready to shine for Lady...

     

    Every time Selena Ritchie walks into Paul J. Coop Gymnasium, whether it’s for practice or a match, the Campbellsville senior has a singular focus.

    The only thing she’s focused on is her favorite sport: volleyball.

    But if the Lady Eagles need a pick-me-up, don’t expect Ritchie to be the one to give the old win-one-for-the-gipper speech. That’s not her game.

  • Hash, Eagles take sting out of...

     

    Watching film of the Metcalfe County Hornets last week, Campbellsville sophomore quarterback Arren Hash was worried about the size of their defensive line and the problems they could create.

    In the end, the Eagles’ speed helped take the sting out of the Hornets.

    Campbellsville used its speed to wear Metcalfe County down, with the Eagles amassing 381 yards of offense in a 36-2 win in the Forcht Bank Bowl at Campbellsville University on Saturday night.

  • McQueary scores three TDs as...

     

    Taylor County was dominant in all three phases of its season opener Friday, forcing six turnovers and racking up nearly 500 yards of total offense in a 56-0 win over Hart County in the Forcht Bank Bowl at Campbellsville University.

    The Cardinals forced the Raiders into four fumbles and two interceptions and rolled up 496 yards on offense as they kicked off the season with a blowout victory.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
