  • Lady Cats wide awake, romp to...

    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...

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

    Pitching for the first time in almost two weeks, the Anderson County junior threw a five-inning no-hitter as the Lady Bearcats routed Spencer, 10-0, in the first round of the 30th District Tournament Tuesday night at Rocket Stadium.

  • 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.

    Sports.

    It doesn’t matter if we are talking about football, baseball and basketball, or even golf, tennis or soccer — sports bring everyone together.

    I found my way as a youngster growing up playing every sport I could with my best friends.

  • Alves named Campbellsville SID

    A life-long love of sports has grown into a full schedule of activities for Jordan Alves in 16 university sports that include 26 different programs.

    Alves, a 2013 graduate of Campbellsville University and a two-year graduate assistant in the sports information department, was named in early May to the post of Sports Information Director, according to a news release. He replaces Chris Megginson, who returned to Alabama to be closer to family and pursue other work opportunities.

  • Bearcats blaze in sixth, burn...

    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.

  • Hot bats, gritty Brown topple...

    SHELBYVILLE – On a day when they weren’t at their best the Collins High School baseball team could not answer Anderson County a final time as the Titans fell 6-3 to the Bearcats in a district seeding game last Tuesday.

    “This was a tough loss,” Collins coach Roy Bailey said. “We didn’t pitch well, we didn’t hit well, just not a good day. Give Anderson County credit in this one, they outplayed us today.”
