    The Midway University baseball team fell to Middle Georgia State in the NAIA national baseball tournament last Tuesday, ending a memorable first season for the school’s program.

    Midway had won the River States Conference a week earlier, defeating West Virginia Tech in the final. The Eagles earned the conference’s automatic bid to the national tournament.

    In the Lima (Ohio) Bracket, Midway dropped an 8-3 decision to Mid-America Nazarene in the tournament opener, then went down to No. 10 Middle Georgia in a 14-13 slugfest.

    Anderson County residents Kaitlyn Riley and Anna-Marie Hyatt were set to participate in the NAIA women’s national golf tournament, being held in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. The tournament was scheduled to get underway Tuesday.

    Riley, a junior at the University of the Cumberlands, will be going for her second consecutive individual national championship. Her Cumberlands team won its sixth straight Mid-South Conference title last month.

  • Bearcats giddy over new grass

    I don’t think I have ever seen anyone so giddy over getting some grass sprigs as Mark Peach was last Monday night.

    But then, I haven’t seen many football fields in worse shape than the one at Anderson County High School in recent years. And Peach, the Bearcat football coach was understandably excited when the Anderson County School Board approved a bid of just over $12,000 to renovate Bob Ware Field. The Bearcats should have a Bermuda grass field ready for their home opener against Mercer County on Sept. 1.


    It would be easy to assume John Paul Garmon was born several generations too late.

    Just think about what his high school coaches say about him. You might agree that the Anderson County High School senior is from a different generation, and they see it as the ultimate compliment.

    “Oh, John Paul is all about winning,” says Anderson basketball coach Glen Drury. “It doesn’t make any difference what sport it is, all he cares about is the team winning.”

  • Thompson tops national meet

    Anderson County Middle School student Henry Thompson was best in the nation twice over the weekend as he took first place in both the bulls-eye and 3D-IBO competition at the National Archery in the Schools Program national tournament, held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

    Over 15,000 archers from around the nation competed in the event. The Anderson County Middle School team placed 44th out of 243 middle school teams in the bullseye competition and ninth out of 89 teams in the 3D-IBO division.
