    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...

    By Mickey Patterson, Landmark News Service

    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.”

  • Woodford rally doesn’t dampen...

    Ariel Dailey belted a two-run home run with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning to give Woodford County a 3-2 win over Anderson County in a battle of Top 10 teams last Wednesday in Versailles.

    Dailey drove in Morgan Grose, who had reached on an error and capped a three-run rally in Woodford’s last at bat. The uprising tagged a loss on Anderson junior Ally Moore, who pitched well, according to Anderson coach Brent Aldridge.
