  • Bearcats keep turning around,...

    Bryndon Labhart’s smile was all anyone needed to know about what was going on for Anderson County Friday night.

    The Bearcats’ senior catcher stood on first base with a huge grin as his single had just completed the process of erasing a four-run deficit to lead Collins, 8-6, in the 30th District Baseball Tournament championship game.

  • Good Lady Bearcats pummel Henry...

    SHELBYVILLE – It took less than an inning for Anderson County to answer questions which Lady Bearcat softball team would be showing up at the Eighth Region Tournament Monday afternoon.

    A first inning that saw the Lady Bearcats score four times on six hits was all the evidence needed that the good Anderson team had come to play Henry County at Collins High School.

  • Bearcats awaken, roll past...

    Anderson County might be out of school for the summer but the Bearcat baseball team gave a lesson in old-school baseball in the Eighth Region Tournament Monday evening at Barnes Memorial Field.

    Hosting the tournament for the first time in 10 years, the Bearcats also waited until the second time through the batting order to get to Walton-Verona starter Braxton Foley. Once their bats awakened, the Bearcats had more than enough pitching to seal the program’s first regional tournament win since 2014.

  • Collins ends Lady Cat district...

    Anderson County seemed to have everything right where it needed to capture another 30th District softball championship Friday night. Instead, the Lady Bearcats saw a five-year run of titles end with a crushing 9-3 defeat at the hands of Collins on the Anderson field.

    It was the first time any team other than Anderson had won the district title since Collins took the crown in 2011.


    Anderson County never had any doubt that Timmy Rogers was the man for the biggest job of the 2017 baseball season. The junior right-hander gave up only three hits before leaving the pitching mound in the sixth inning of a 9-4 romp past Spencer County in the 30th District Tournament Monday at Barnes Memorial Field.

    “They told me about two weeks ago,” Rogers said of when he learned he would be getting the call in the district opener, the early elimination game in the post-season.

  • Underrated Civic Center will...

    I’m not sure if I was at the first basketball game played in the Frankfort Convention Center but it had to be close.

    It was back in December of 1971 when the University of Kentucky freshman team played Furman before a sold out crowd. The “Super Kittens” routed a Furman team that was supposed to another of the better freshman classes in America with 7-footer Fessor Leonard and guard Baron Hill, who would later become a U.S. Congressman from southern Indiana.

  • Lady Bearcats have no mercy in...

    One of the last things Brent Aldridge told his Anderson County softball team before it took the field in the 30th District Tournament was simply that the Lady Bearcats could do something very special.
