    RICHMOND -- The Anderson County Little League 9- and 10-year-old all-star team went to Richmond with big dreams for last week’s state tournament at Lake Reba Park.

    Like all teams entering statewide play for the first time, the Anderson stars had visions of going home with the banner declaring them to be the best Little League team in Kentucky at their age level.

  • Enjoying the precious present

    As they gathered for a team photo last Wednesday, there were a few faint smiles and even fewer tears on the faces of the Anderson County Little League 9- and 10-year-old all-star team.

    They’d just taken a 17-4 beating from Owensboro Southern in the state championship game. The Owensboro team had gotten a leadoff home run, then sealed Anderson’s fate of being “mercy-ruled” with a grand slam that made it 17-3 in the top of the third.

    Anderson County girls’ golf coach Robert Hanks leaves no doubt when it comes to his assessment of the potential of his team.

    “They can be as good as they want to be,” he says, “If they put in the time and effort.”

    Hanks knows he has several golfers with the ability to be very good high school players. But he also sees small numbers. Only seven girls had expressed interest in playing when Hanks talked about the season, which started Saturday in the Lady Rocket Classic at Weissinger Hills in Shelbyville.

  • Young Bearcats looking for...

    A ride around Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course last week might have summarized the expectations surrounding the Anderson County High School boys’ team this year.

    Some trees had obscured a group of golfers from new coach Nate Hollon’s view, but when he finally caught up with them, there was some quality on display.

  • Little League title dream ends...

    The dream of a state championship came to an end for the Anderson County Little League baseball 9- and 10-year-old all-stars Wednesday morning in Richmond.

    Owensboro Southern pounded the local team, bashing five home runs en route to a 17-4 romp past Anderson in the Little League State Tournament at Lake Reba Park in Richmond. The game was called after four innings with Owensboro Southern in front by 13 runs.
