  • Lady Cats advance to region

    Anderson County left little doubt about its approach to the post-season with a 15-0 rout of visiting Eminence in the first round of the 30th District softball tournament on Monday night.

    The Lady Bearcats scored three times in both the first and second innings, then ended things with a nine-run outburst in the third, pounding seven hits and taking advantage of four Lady Warrior errors to invoke the “mercy rule.”

    “We talked about (getting to the 15-run lead),” said senior first baseman Lauren Brown, who had a pair of hits and two RBI.

  • Hamrick falls, will still play in state tournament

    FRANKFORT -- The Cinderella run struck midnight for Kristen Hamrick, but there’s still another ball to attend.

    Hamrick lost to Franklin County High School’s Sara Kellerman in the Region 8 girls’ tennis championship match 6-1, 7-5. Hamrick, a senior from Anderson County High School, was the region’s seventh seed, and thanks to making it to the regional championship match, will still have a place in the state tournament held in Lexington.

        “(Kellerman) played really well, and I did my best,” Hamrick said.

  • COLUMN: Hamrick looks upward to move forward

    To Kristen Hamrick, suffering a loss in the regional championship match really wasn't the end of the world.

    She had already been guaranteed a spot in this week's state tennis tournament with an impressive run to the final – think eight sets, six of which were of the 6-0 variety – and advancing farther than any Anderson County girls' player ever has.

  • Bearcats close regular season with impressive performances

    Anderson County wrapped up the regular-season portion of its baseball campaign with a pair of impressive wins, including an 8-4 victory over 18th-ranked Western Hills last Thursday. The Bearcats entered post-season play at 17-11 and appear to be playing their best baseball of the season.

    Saturday, the Bearcats got a strong pitching performance from senior Daniel Goodlett as Anderson defeated Woodford County 5-4 in the annual season-ending contest at Versailles.

  • Hamrick advances to regional final

    UPDATED, WEDNESDAY, MAY 19, 10:50 P.M.

    Anderson County's Kristen Hamrick played almost flawless tennis to defeat North Oldham's Caitlyn Hickey in the Region 8 girls' tennis regional semifinal on Wednesday. Hamrick moves on to the regional final, continuing an unlikely run through the tournament by winning her second consecutive match against a higher-seeded foe.

  • Cornish not charged in alleged assault

    A woman’s claim that Judge-Executive Steve Cornish assaulted her has been dismissed by a special prosecutor assigned to the case.

    Penny Johnson, of 1653 Bonds Mill Road, claimed Cornish grabbed her by the arm while she was standing on a bridge on Paxton Road on May 1 as highway crews worked to clear it of debris.

    Johnson, her husband Floyd and others were at the bridge that Sunday morning, complaining that it was improperly built about a year ago and that its design was causing flooding on their property upstream.
