Today's Sports

  • Get your news to The News

    If you have a sports news announcement, score or picture, there is no better place to get the word out than The Anderson News.

    With the many youth baseball and softball tournaments going on along with the start of scholastic fall sports, it is impossible for The News' one-man sports department to cover everything.

    However, we still welcome any local sports information.

  • Cardinals, Tops win in...

    You almost have to have a map to tell where any college is playing these days.

    Obviously, I am referring to the latest big shift, the University of Louisville to the Atlantic Coast Conference.

    Kudos to the Cardinals for a move that, in today's landscape, is bold and elevates an already fast-moving athletic program into the realm of the big boys.

    Anderson County track athletes Carley Duncan and Alorra Sims both had strong showings in the AAU Region 6 qualifer, held at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesbor, Tennessee last weekend.

  • Learning real lessons for real...

    John Updike earned a third-place finish in the Mid-South Conference track meet this spring, but that did not warrant a mention on his Facebook account.

    There was just a photo of the Anderson County native throwing the discus with the caption, “My last throw as a Blue Raider.”

    About a week later, however, Updike posted, “In less than six days I will be the first person from my family to graduate college.”
