  • Robinson never backs down from...

    Countless athletes around the world would love to have Corrin Robinson’s problem.

    It’s a problem, only if you really want to call it that.

    That so-called problem is that she wins so much that no one seems to know how many times she has been victorious in her high school athletic career.

    Told you a lot of people would like problems like that.


    INDEPENDENCE, Ky. – There were not many nails left to bite on when Autumn Beasley stepped to the plate last Thursday.

    Trailing 1-0 with two out, but two on in the bottom of the fifth inning of the Eighth Region championship game, fifth-ranked Anderson County needed a break in the worst way to overcome upset-minded Collins.

    Beasley, hitting in the nine spot in the Lady Bearcat order, provided it with a deceptively slow grounder that somehow made it through the Collins infield.

  • Casciola chooses Berea
  • Sea named regional all-tourney

    Anderson County High School baseball player Chris Sea was named to the Eighth Region’s All-Tournament team, announced after Thursday’s championship game at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    A senior, Sea went 1-for-3 at the plate and drove in two runs with a double during the Bearcats’ opening round loss to Grant County.

    Collins won the regional title, defeating South Oldham, 2-0, in the championship game.

  • Lady Bearcat basketball...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ basketball team celebrated the 2014-15 season with the recet awards banquet.

  • Lady Cats not top pick, but...

    Not many are picking Anderson County to bring home the big trophy from the Worth/KHSAA State Softball Tournament Saturday, but few are predicting a quick trip for the Lady Bearcats either.

    While most of the discussion centers on top-ranked McCracken County and second-ranked Madisonville, one of the teams that pops up when talking about a dark horse candidate is Anderson County.

    Anderson is certainly capable of making a long run.

    At least Collins coach Charlie LeCompte thinks so.
