  • Rain delay can’t stop Lady Bearcat bats

    INDEPENDENCE -- Early morning rains delayed things a bit, but Anderson County bats delivered the inevitable Monday.

    The Lady Bearcats erupted for seven runs in the bottom of the third inning on their way to a 12-0 shellacking of Owen County in the opening round of the Eighth Region Softball Tournament at Simon Kenton High School.

    The game started about 45 after the scheduled noon start after rain in northern Kentucky delayed the first game of the tournament between Grant County and Oldham County.

  • Aldridge no-hits Spencer in district

    SHELBYVILLE – Mia Aldridge wasn't particularly sharp, but don't try to convince the Spencer County bats of that.

  • Bearcats oust Spencer in district

    SHELBYVILLE – Mason Baker appeared to have a bit more hop in his jump. He stretched his arm more than he'd ever done.

    Spencer County batter Nathan Connard's soft line drive just eluded the Anderson County shortstop's glove in the seventh inning of the 30th District baseball tournament last Tuesday.

    When the ball hit on the outfield grass, Josh Brown's no-hit bid was over.
