    But Oldham County showed why it eventually won the regional championship and has won 33 or 39 games when the Lady Colonels erupted for seven runs in the top of the sixth in an 8-1 win over Anderson in the Eighth Region semi-final last Wednesday at South Oldham High School.

    SHELBYVILLE – In the end, the ultimate tribute given to Anderson County baseball was also its downfall.

    South Oldham senior Jordan Simons dominated the Bearcats last Wednesday, striking out 15 and giving up just 3 hits in earning a 2-0 win in the Eighth Region Tournament semifinals at Collins High School.

    Simply put, Simons was the best Anderson had seen in a while. “Honestly, he was far better than advertised,” said Anderson coach L.W. Barnes.

    Neither woman had been officially identified as of late Thursday afternoon.
