SHELBYVILLE – Granville Hayes just wanted to put the bat on the ball.
Hayes stroked a one-out, bases-loaded single to score Tanner Roberts, giving Anderson County a 2-1 walk-off win over Owen County Monday night in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament being held at Collins High School.
Hayes, who had struck out with the bases loaded in the third inning, drove Stone Osborne's 0-2 pitch to the right side of the infield. Owen could not make a play, setting off a wild celebration among the Anderson players.
CRESTWOOD – As soon as Kaci Currens connected, it was a no-doubter.
The Anderson County eighth-grader belted a monster grand slam in the bottom of the first that was the spark for the Lady Bearcats' 8-1 win over 32nd District runner-up Simon Kenton Monday night in the opening round of the Eighth Region softball tournament at South Oldham High School.
TAYLORSVILLE – Madison Brummett had never pitched 10 innings in a varsity softball game before last Tuesday night, but after battling to a 7-4 win over Collins, she could only smile and say, “My arm feels great.”
“It always feels a little better when you win,” laughed Anderson County coach Brian Glass.
Especially when that win is in an elimination game of the 30th District Tournament and is against the same team that eliminated Anderson in the same round a year ago.
