  • BASEBALL: Defensive miscues open way for Collins to whip Bearcats

    SHELBYVILLE – Anderson County’s baseball team can be happy the team bus did not break down on the way to Shelbyville last Friday.

    On second thought, it might have been better if it had. Nothing else went right for the Bearcats at Collins High School. Collins took advantage of three Anderson errors and a host of other defensive lapses to score 10 unearned runs in a 13-5 romp that strapped the Titans firmly into the driver’s seat in the 30th District race.

  • SOFTBALL: Peavler's super showing goes for naught at Spencer

    TAYLORSVILLE – Mackenzie Peavler deserved a better fate.

    The record will show that the Anderson County sophomore pitcher dropped a 3-2 decision in eight innings at Spencer County last Thursday. It marked Anderson's seventh straight loss, the longest such streak at Anderson since the KHSAA began keeping seasonal records in 2002.

    And that record does not do justice to how Peavler turned in perhaps the finest effort of her varsity softball career and was still tagged with the loss.

  • Search for possible jumper continues

    A search in under way this afternoon for the body of a man who possibly jumped from the Tyrone Bridge earlier today.

    Two rescue boats were launched around 11 a.m. from the boat ramp in Tyrone, Emergency Management Services Director Bart Powell has confirmed. The boats were still searching as of 4 p.m. It was unclear how long the search would continue Friday, but is expected to resume Saturday morning.

  • BASEBALL: West Jessamine overcomes early deficit, beats Bearcats

    West Jessamine spotted Anderson County an early 1-0 lead then scored nine times over a four-inning stretch to defeat the host Bearcats, 9-3, last Wednesday.

    Houston Barber belted a home run and a double and Austin Dunn doubled twice to lead the West Jessamine attack. Seven different Colt batters drove in runs.

    The Bearcats were unable to muster much of anything against West Jessamine pitchers Zach Settles and Josh Carroll. Settles scattered six hits and gave up one earned run over four innings to get the win. Carroll came on to pitch three innings of one-hit ball in relief.
