  • Cards rout Dragons

    Taylor County senior quarterback Grant McQueary was Mr. Perfect Friday night.

    McQueary threw just three passes, and he completed them all for touchdowns as the host Cardinals rolled past rival Green County, 57-8.

    McQueary finished with 168 yards passing, tossing touchdown throws of 68 yards to senior Cameron Kosid, 66 yards to junior Gabe Burruss and 34 yards to senior DeJhon Irvin.

  • Lady Cards qualify for state for...

    The Taylor County Lady Cardinals are heading back to the state cross country meet for the fourth straight year.

    Taylor County placed fourth in last Saturday’s Class 2-A, Region 2 meet at the Hardin County Faigrounds, earning one of the region’s automatic qualifying spots for this weekend’s state meet at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    The Lady Cardinals placed all five of their scoring runners in the top 30, finishing with 111 points.

  • Maynard places second in region


    Ryan Maynard wasn’t happy with himself.

    The Taylor County junior knew what it took to run a good time Saturday at the Hardin County Fairgrounds, but he came up just short in the Class 2-A, Region 2 meet.

    Maynard placed second to Warren East senior Colton Bullington, finishing in 17 minutes, 23.67 seconds.

  • CHS' McAninch is as steady...


    Ian McAninch never envisioned himself as a runner growing up, but a presidential physical fitness test taken when he was in the sixth grade changed all of that.

    McAninch was asked to run a mile in the fitness test, and he said he was one of the fastest in his class. Now a Campbellsville High School senior, his love of running blossomed from there.

  • Flying under the radar no more


    Underestimate Ryan Maynard at your own risk. The Taylor County junior standout cross country runner will only use that to prove doubters wrong.

    Earlier this season, Maynard was reading an article on KYTrackXC.com, which mentioned several of his competitors in Class 2-A. There was just one problem: Maynard wasn’t among them.

    So that day in practice at Miller Park’s walking track, Maynard went harder and pushed himself probably more than he had before. He was on a mission: to prove he belonged among the best.

  • Miracle knows her role for Lady...


    As a libero, Hope Miracle knows she has an important job to do for the Taylor County Lady Cardinals.

    And the junior relishes that role.

    Miracle’s job is to try and get to any ball hit by the opposition, no matter where that ball may have been hit. The Lady Cardinals get their attack going through Miracle, who is determined to make a play on any ball that comes over the net.

  • Lady Cards fall in region...


    The Taylor County Lady Cardinals knew they had a tough road ahead after getting drawn into a matchup against Bethlehem in the Girls’ 5th Region Soccer Tournament quarterfinals.

    Bethlehem is the three-time defending region champion and was ranked third in the state entering the postseason in the Maher Rankings.

  • Campbellsville tops Bethlehem


    Malachi Corley and Charlie Pettigrew showed up and showed out Friday night, leading Campbellsville to its second straight Class 1-A, District 2 title.

    Corley caught eight passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns, while Pettigrew carried the ball 13 times for 142 yards and two scores in Campbellsville’s 44-16 win over Bethlehem at Lally Field.

    Campbellsville coach Dale Estes said Corley is a “special player.”

  • Cards rally past Titans, win...


    Jason Foley had a few goals in mind when he took over as head football coach at Taylor County. Among them, he wanted to knock down doors and do things that hadn’t been done before in the team’s history.

    After Friday night, the Cardinals can check one of those goals off the list.

  • Maynard wins invitational,...

    Taylor County junior Ryan Maynard is starting to peak at the right time on the cross country circuit.

    Maynard cruised to victory in Saturday’s inaugural G.C. Parker Invitational at Miller Park, finishing the 5-kilometer race in 16 minutes, 19.77 seconds.

    Sophomore teammate Dalton Nunn was second, crossing in 17:25.96. Sophomore Noah Rogers was ninth in 19:12.25, while freshman Isaac Rogers placed 19th in 22:34.26.

    Bryan Station was the only team to field the full complement of five runners, winning the team title with 15 points.
