    SHELBYVILLE – In the end, the ultimate tribute given to Anderson County baseball was also its downfall.

    South Oldham senior Jordan Simons dominated the Bearcats last Wednesday, striking out 15 and giving up just 3 hits in earning a 2-0 win in the Eighth Region Tournament semifinals at Collins High School.

    Neither woman had been officially identified as of late Thursday afternoon.
