    The wake-up call had been made over a month before and Anderson County made sure there would be no napping in the 30th District Tournament.

    The Lady Bearcats captured their fourth consecutive district softball title with a 6-2 win over Collins in Wednesday's championship game played at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

  • 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.

  • Bearcats blaze in sixth, burn Hills

    Anderson County exploded for five runs in the bottom of the sixth to defeat Western Hills, 8-6, in what turned out to be the high school baseball regular-season finale Friday night at Barnes Memorial Field.

    Trailing 6-3 to a team that had already beaten them once this year, the Bearcats sent 10 batters to the plate their final at bat on the home field this year.

    A scheduled game with Woodford County on Saturday was rained out. The Bearcats were scheduled to begin district tournament play Tuesday night against Spencer County at Shelby County.
