                           HON. BRETT GUTHRIE

                              of kentucky

                    in the house of representatives

                        Wednesday, June 3, 2009

  Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor the Campbellsville 
University Baseball Team on their outstanding performance this season. 
They demonstrated extraordinary athletic and academic achievement that 
brought national attention to Campbellsville University, the 
Campbellsville and Taylor County communities, and all of Kentucky's 
Second District.
  Under the leadership of head coach Beauford Sanders and his staff, 
the Campbellsville University Baseball Team reached the National 
Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) World Series for the 
first time in school history. The Tigers reached the NAIA World Series 
following a tremendous performance by senior pitcher Bryan Fuller. Mr. 
Fuller pitched 21 scoreless innings in 26 hours to give the team three 
straight victories that propelled them to the highest level of 
competition in their league.
  The team finished the season with a remarkable 39-12 record. Coach 
Sanders reached a noteworthy milestone this season as well by reaching 
835 career wins for his tenure. Coach Sanders and his staff should be 
commended for providing leadership, direction, and encouragement to 
these student athletes.
  The Campbellsville University Baseball Team's performance is a 
testament to their exceptional talent and commitment to excellence. 
Theirs is an example for all of Kentucky to follow. I commend the 
coaching staff and student athletes for the recognition they have 
brought to Campbellsville University, the Campbellsville and Taylor 
County communities, and the Second District.
