  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Five Bearcats make state meet

    Anderson County had a day of mixed results at the Class 3A, Region 5 track meet, held Friday at Montgomery County High School.

    On the good side, five Anderson performers earned berths at the KHSAA State Track Meet in six different events. The state meet will be held on Saturday, May 23 at the University of Kentucky. The competition is scheduled to get underway at 4 p.m.

  • 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.
