  • Penny shines in all-star matchup

    HARRODSBURG – It is often difficult to get a feel for how good a player performs in an all-star basketball setting, but one thing was certain about Cobe Penny last Thursday night.

    “He got picked as one of the Top 10 players in the state of Kentucky,” Anderson County High School coach Glen Drury said of his standout. “He was representing Anderson County on the Kentucky All-Stars.”

    And Penny, who was part of the Kentucky Junior All-Star Team, represented well in a scrimmage at Mercer County Senior High School.

    When I met with L.W. Barnes back in mid-March, one thing, more than any other, stood out about that hour-long interview to discuss Anderson County’s outlook for the high school baseball season.

    He was very upbeat. Barnes even said he felt the Bearcats had a chance to contend for the Eighth Region championship.

    Since Barnes, who took over the Anderson program in 1999, has always been a straight shooter with me, I didn’t think he was pulling my leg.

    Bailey Curry’s high school softball career ended two weeks ago but the awards keep coming in for the Anderson County High School standout.

    Curry was named Class 3A first-team all-state in voting by the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association. It was the third consecutive season that Curry has been awarded the first team all-state honor. She was named second team all-state as a freshman in 2014.

    “It is an honor to be on the list of names with some of those girls and be a part of that again. I am super blessed,” Curry said.
