COLUMN: Four Final thoughts on college hoops

By John Herndon

Well, now, wasn’t that fun?

Obviously, it would have been more of a blast for most people in these parts if a different shade of blue had been playing Monday night, but Kentucky’s run to the Final Four was what sports are really supposed to be.

For Kentucky fans, at least, watching a team morph from marginal to mighty was as much as anything since, oh, 1998 or so. And you can bet that it won’t take 13 more years.

So with that, I will leave you with four final thoughts on the college basketball season.

SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Lady Bearcats stumble in Oldham tourney

By John Herndon

While Anderson County got a leg up on the seeding race for the 30th District Tournament with wins over Collins and Shelby County, the rest of the Lady Bearcats’ week left much to be desired, according to Anderson coach Brian Glass.


The Lady Bearcats dropped three of four games, including one to regional foe Henry County in the Oldham County Spring Break Classic on Saturday.

New's blast sends Anderson past Collins

SOFTBALL: Not rivalry-like as Lady Cats pound Shelby

By John Herndon

The 35-degree temperatures were not softball-like, but Anderson County's 12-2 rout of Shelby County last Wednesday was not rivalry-like either.

This Wildcat team gets what the blue and white jersey really means

COLUMN: In love with The Young and the Relentless

By John Herndon

Go on, admit it.


Admit that back on Feb. 23 you thought Kentucky’s chances of playing in the Final Four were roughly equal to those of Charles Barkley becoming commissioner of the Big East.


It’s OK. Really.


No one else did, either.


Not when you are losing to Arkansas. Not when you are 7-6 in the SEC with Florida, Vandy and Tennessee (in Knoxville) as the next three bumps in the road.

FOOTBALL: Peach says Bearcats have good spring practice

By John Herndon

It is still almost five months until Anderson County opens the 2011 football season at Bryan Station on August 19, but the Bearcats got a good look at what they should be able to do in spring practice, which ended last Friday.


Anderson was able to practice 10 times in a three-week span, as allowed by Kentucky High School Athletic Association rules.
“Overall it went really well,” said Anderson coach Mark Peach. “We had around 30 boys out for spring practice.


“I thought we had a great attitude.”
