  • 25 years and some Nasty memories

    Twenty-five years and I still can’t believe it.

    But yes, it’s been 25 years since people in these parts wanted to “Get Nasty.”

    A quarter of a century since people who think a Hammer is something you hit a nail with were dancing to “You Can’t Touch This.”

    Twenty-five years since Wire-To-Wire, Eric Davis and Jose Rijo.

    And Billy Bates.

    If you don’t remember Billy Bates, well, on second thought, if you remotely care about the Cincinnati Reds, you remember Billy Bates.


    The nature of track and field is that records are made to be broken. That it took 50 years for someone to set a new Anderson County High School record for the girls’ long jump shows just how impressive both the new record is and the old mark was.

    Sophomore Alorra Sims soard 17-feet-3.5-inches Saturday in the Heart of the Bluegrass meet at Henry Clay High School in Lexington. Sims, considered one of the top jumpers in Kentucky, bested a school mark set in 1965 by Charlene Peyton, who leaped 16-11 at a time when girls’ track was in its infancy in Kentucky.

  • Peach excited as spring drills end

    Through a seven-minute interview following football spring practice, Anderson County head coach left little doubt about how he looks at the 2015 campaign.

    “We are excited!” he said.

    It’s not just a run-of-the-mill excitement, either. It’s the kind that prompted Peach to use that phrase, or one very similar, at least six times during the conversation.

  • Bearcats top No. 7 E-town in Bat Classic

    Anderson County turned in what might have been the Bearcats’ best stretch of baseball in the 2015 season by winning two of three games in the Elizabethtown Wooden Bat Classic, held Friday and Saturday.

    The Bearcats defeated perennially strong Danville and Elizabethtown before falling to Louisville Male for the second time in five days. Anderson now stands at 6-7 on the year with a major district battle at Spencer County looming Thursday night.

  • Collins turns Lady Bearcat mistakes into stunning upset

    SHELBYVILLE – After the stunning reality that an 11-game winning streak had come to an end, Anderson County softball coach Brent Aldridge tried to look at the big picture after the Lady Bearcats’ 2-1 loss at Collins last Wednesday.

    “I think this might be a good thing,” Aldridge said, obviously alluding to a possible wake-up call for the Lady Bearcats, who had climbed to a No. 6 ranking in the statewide coaches’ poll. “We are good, but if we don’t play a certain way, we are kind of average.”
