  • Lady Bearcats slam Carroll in...

    BEDFORD – The calendar said that it was Memorial Day, but Bailey Curry was ready for the Fourth of July.

    Curry set off some the fireworks in the form of a walk-off grand slam to send Anderson County to an 11-0 win over Carroll County in the opening round of the Eighth Region Softball Tournament Monday at Trimble County High School.

    With Anderson firmly in control with a 7-0 lead, Curry sent a 1-1 pitch from Carroll pitcher Andrea Searcy into orbit. Curry’s blast landed perhaps 50 feet beyond the fence in right-center, 200 feet away.

  • Lady Bearcat softball team makes...

    There’s always something special about every graduating class. Always.

    It’s something all of us claim to know, but when you are writing about a ton of high school sports, people and dates tend to run together. It’s not uncommon to realize someone is graduating from college when I am thinking he’s a sophomore or so.

  • Three Bearcats medal at state...

    LEXINGTON – The final results of the KHSAA Class 3A Track and Field Meet might have been a synopsis of the now completed 2016 season at Anderson County High School.

    Only three Bearcats survived the regional and at-large eliminations to advance to the state and those three had mixed results, a finish driven by high expectations and hampered to a degree by medical issues.

  • Lady Cats own district fifth...

    TAYLORSVILLE – Sometimes, it seemed like Anderson County was playing against two opponents in going for its fifth straight 30th District softball championship.

    The linescore says Anderson's opponent was Shelby County, a team that had not beaten Anderson since the 2009 district final. But in reality, the Lady Bearcats' biggest nemesis was Anderson County.

    But in spite of themselves, the Lady Bearcats rallied from a 4-1 deficit to whip Shelby, 8-5, in the district championship game last Tuesday at Spencer County High School.

  • Riley’s record round takes title

    Kaitlyn Riley knew she was in good shape.

    Even though the University of the Cumberlands sophomore had just bogeyed the 16th hole at Savannah Quarters Country Club, Riley still had a two-stroke lead with two holes to play in the NAIA Golf Tournament, held in Pooler, Ga., last week.

    Riley held on to win the individual title, defeating top-ranked Elsa Westin of Keiser University. Riley’s final round 68 tied for the the lowest single round score in the history of the NAIA Tournament.

  • Unexpected opportunity a lasting...

    I rarely cover college signings anymore.

    It’s not that those are not important moments in the life of a young person. They are very significant to the person and the family involved. It’s a milestone not many people playing high school sports ever achieve. For that reason, I do ask that the parties involved provide a photo and information and we will find a place for that on the sports page.

  • Collins ousts Anderson in...

    SHELBYVILLE – Will McDonald obviously did not want his high school baseball career to end just yet.

    The Collins senior gave up only two hits as he shut out Anderson County, 3-0, in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament Monday night at Collins High School.

    McDonald struck out eight and did not allow any of Anderson’s six base runners past second base. McDonald walked two and hit a batter.
