  • TRACK: Bearcats get win, personal records

    The Anderson County boys' track team scored an impressive win at Collins last Tuesday, outdistancing the host school, 104-96 in a five-team all-comers meet.

    The Bearcats got strong performances from Casey Moninger, who won the 400-meter dash with a 52.60 time, and Connor Duncan, who took the 300-meter hurdles (42.96) and placed second in the 110-meter event (17.66)  while Tyson Yett took the triple jump with 38-feet-10-inch effort.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats look to move on after Spencer rolls

    TAYLORSVILLE – About all Anderson County could do was tip their hats to Spencer County and move on last Friday.

    The Bears took advantage of seven Anderson walks, another hit batter and two Anderson errors to post an 11-1 five-inning win in a game rescheduled from a day earlier because of rain.

    Spencer collected only seven hits – just one of those for extra bases, but waited out Anderson starter Brandon Eliadis for seven walks to notch its first win over the Bearcats since 2009.

  • BASEBALL: Four Western Hills pitchers deflate Bearcats

    FRANKFORT – The walk from the right field corner back to the Anderson County dugout was slow and painful last Tuesday.

    “They are a little deflated right now,” Bearcat baseball coach L.W. Barnes said following the team meeting to discuss a 5-0 loss at Western Hills.  “We had been playing really good baseball and then didn't get the job done today.”

    Cotton, Anderson's starting pitcher, gave up two earned runs – one of those might have been a bit of a fluke – and six hits over four innings.

  • COLUMN: No home field advantage for Bearcat baseball

    You have heard of the home field advantage, but what about the home field non-advantage?

    That is the case for several Anderson County High School sports teams right now. If you want to put the most positive spin on things, it's not good.

    Truthfully, it is an embarrassment to the programs, the school and Anderson County.

    If you have been following Bearcat baseball this spring, you know that as of April 16, Anderson has not had a home baseball game yet. That is over a month since the start of the 2013 season.

  • SOFTBALL: Powerful win but not perfection

    SHELBYVILLE – There were plenty of reasons for Anderson County to be happy Monday night, but the Lady Bearcats' 30th District win over Collins was far from perfect.

    To be sure, Anderson flexed its muscles quickly with a five-run uprising in the top of the first. The Lady Bearcats added another in the second but instead of coasting to a rout, Anderson had to work for the win.

  • Car bursts into flames in Edwardo's parking lot

    A car burst into flames in the back parking lot behind Edwardo's Pizza Tuesday night just as an employee was coming back from a pizza delivery.  

    City fire received a call at about 7:18 p.m. Tuesday evening of a car on fire behind Edwardo's Pizza, located at 1090 Glensboro Road, City Fire Chief Bobby Hume said. 

    "[The fire] was fully involved when they called us out," Hume said as firefighters sprayed more water on the vehicle, "caused a little damage to the car on the opposite side of it."
