  • Bearcats advance in regional tournament

    SHELBYVILLE – Anderson County made sure that the Eighth Region tournament would be worth the wait.

    And the Bearcats nearly became pros at waiting Monday before beating North Oldham 5-2 in the first round of the tournament at the Shelby County Athletic Complex. Anderson was to have played Gallatin County in the regional semifinals last night after press time.

    Before going up against North Oldham’s Jason Sterrett, considered by many to be the top pitcher in the region, the Bearcats had gathered at the high school batting cage to hit at 11, then took a break.

  • No excuses for season-ending loss

    SHELBYVILLE – There were no excuses.

    There could not be after Simon Kenton had ended Anderson County’s quest to repeat as Eighth Region champions Monday.

    The Pioneers took advantage of four Anderson errors to score a 6-2 win in the first round of the regional tournament at the Shelby County Athletic Complex. Simon Kenton, the winningest team in the region, stunned the seventh-ranked Lady Bearcats with six unearned runs to advance to Tuesday’s semifinal game against Oldham County.

  • Robinson places second, three medal in state track meet

    LOUISVILLE – B.J. Robinson was so close.

    So close to a state pole vault championship that he could feel it.

    The record will show that the Anderson County senior could not clear 14 feet, finishing second to Henderson County’s Evan Pitt in the pole vault at the state high school track meet at Cardinal Park on the campus of the University of Louisville. That record will tell that Robinson only topped out at 13-06 for the highest Anderson track finish at the state in over a decade.

  • Round 3, Act 2

    Haven't we been through this before?

    Back on March 10, it seemed like everyone in two counties was talking about Anderson County vs. Shelby County. They were playing for the Eighth Region basketball championship that night and Anderson was going for its third win of the season against its biggest rival.

    Well, now. Look at May 27.

    If the weatherman cooperates, Anderson County and Shelby County will be going for all the marbles on the baseball diamond. Game time is 7 p.m. at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

  • A whole different world

    It might have not completely sunk in, but Erin Drury hit the big time last week.

    Drury, who will graduate from Anderson County High School Thursday night, learned on May 16 that she had made the cut to become a cheerleader for the Eastern Kentucky Colonels next year.

    Drury made the team of 22 girls and three boys after tryouts at the Richmond campus.

    There were no major announcements, not even a phone call. “I found out about it online,” Drury said with a smile.

  • Bearcats roar into regional final with 11-1 win over Gallatin

    Anderson County jumped on Gallatin County for three runs in the first inning, then broke things open in the second with five more on the way to an 11-1 win in the semifinal round of the Eighth Region Tournament held at the Shelby County Athletic Complex. Anderson is now one win from successfully defending the regional title it won last year, a feat no program in a single-class sport has done in the 60-year history of the school.

  • DARE fishing derby is May 30

    Chicken livers will be the order of the day May 30 when the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department hosts the sixth annual DARE Fishing Derby at Hope Community Church.

    The annual event draws hundreds of young anglers and their parents hoping to land a prize-winning catfish from the church’s lake.

    Sheriff Troy Young said the event is a perfect way for families to get together and share some quality time.

  • Robinson is state runnerup in pole vault

    LOUISVILLE – B.J. Robinson was so close.

    The Anderson County senior could not clear 14 feet, finishing second to Henderson County's Evan Pitt in the pole vault at the state high school track meet at Cardinal Park on the campus of the University of Louisville.

    Robinson and Pitt staged a monumental battle, but Pitt prevailed when he easily cleared 14. Robinson could not match that.

    “I couldn't get loose,” said Robinson, who just had knee surgery in February.

  • Portion of Gilbert's Creek Road closed

    Anderson County Judge-Executive Steve Cornish ordered a portion of Gilbert's Creek Road closed Friday afternoon after it was determined the road was no longer safe.

    Cornish closed a section of the road near the river, right next to a spot that collapsed last year.

    "It's right near there, on the curve," he said.

    Cornish said he signed an executive emergency order Friday afternoon.
