  • Having fun is the name of the game

    Chances are that few played in the NCAA basketball tournament last month with a stated desire of “beating my best score.”

    You can also  bet that few head to a bowl game with the stated desire to “just have fun.”

    And chances are that you won't find many claiming to relax in a sport where perfection is found in an area eight centimeters across. For the metric system-challenged, that is just a bit more than three inches.

  • Lady Bearcats play long ball, roll past Shelby

    Anderson County left little doubt about 30th District softball supremacy on Monday night. At least for now the Lady Bearcats did with a 9-2 thrashing of visiting Shelby County.

    But the Lady Bearcats were not ready to make that statement, yet.

    “The only thing that matters is the district (tournament),” said Anderson senior Lauren Brown, who remembered that Shelby routed the Lady Bearcats in the district finals last year.

  • COLUMN: Holt's Derby dream lives on despite tragedy

    The countdown had already started but it was to begin in earnest on Saturday night.

    Fifty-three weeks, 371 days until May 7, 2011.

    Everyone in Lawrenceburg knew that was the date one of our own could be living a real-life Hollywood story. A small Anderson County farm, with a name inspired by the owner’s son, would be saddling up a horse in the Derby.

    Having a horse with the bloodlines that say you might just be on the winner’s stand with the governor? That’s Hollywood off the charts.

  • Shelby rolls past error-prone Bearcats

    SHELBYVILLE -- Shelby County took advantage of six Anderson County errors and made Bearcat pitching pay for seven walks and four hit batsmen in posting a 16-6 win in district baseball action Friday night.

    Shelby took firm control of the regular-season 30th District race and has the inside track on the top seed in the district tournament, to be played in late May.

  • Saturday Little League games canceled

    All Anderson County Little League games scheduled for Saturday, May 1, have been canceled because of the rain and storms in the area. Make-up dates, if any, will be announced at a later date.

  • Bearcats to battle for district supremacy

    Note: The Anderson News was informed Thursday morning of a time change in the Anderson County vs. Shelby County baseball game on Friday. First pitch is now set for 5:30 p.m. at Shelby County.

    For years, Shelby County dominated Eighth Region baseball so it is a good bet that the Rockets are not about to let Anderson County keep its claim as the regional king without a fight.

    The teams square off Friday night, April 30, at the Shelby County Athletic Complex. First pitch is set for 5:30 p.m.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: Phillps' first major decision a tough one

    I would not want to be in Joker Phillips' shoes right now.

    His first major decision, as far as most fans are concerned, could be one that defines his first season as head football coach of the Kentucky Wildcats.

    But, in reality, another area could be the major factor in determining the success of Kentucky football in 2010.

    Unless you have been exiled to the outer reaches of the Yukon, you know what that first major decision is: Who will be the quarterback under center when the Wildcats open the season at Louisville on Sept. 4?
