  • Moore fires no-hitter against...

    If Ally Moore pitches like this when she is not feeling well, what will she do when she is full strength?

    Moore, an Anderson County junior, totally silenced the Louisville Holy Cross bats, firing a no-hitter as the Lady Bearcats prevailed, 2-1, in the final game of the Lafayette Invitational, held Saturday in Lexington.

    Moore held the Cougars, ranked No. 16 in the state in the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association poll, hitless while striking out seven and walking one.

  • Sims jumps over Creek field

    Anderson County High School sophomore Alorra Sims backed up her reputation as one of Kentucky’s best jumpers when she took first place in the long jump at the Tates Creek Commodore Classic Saturday in Lexington.

    Sims soared 16-feet-11-inches, tying a school record in the event. Sims, who finished third in the state in the event last year, is considered a serious contender for the state championship. Sims also placed sixth in the 100-meter hurdles and third in the 300-meter hurdles. It was the best showing of any Anderson harrier on Saturday.

    Many of us who remember the March 1997 floods in Kentucky recently had uncomfortable pangs of foreboding as storm systems dropped heavy amounts of rain freight-trained across the state.

    It looked like another 1997 for a day or so. Small, normally docile neighborhood creeks suddenly filled basements, eroded roadways and carried away belongings.

  • Youth Turkey Hunt

    Hannah Wampler has officially served notice she should be in the conversation when the discussion turns to the top girls’ high school tennis players in central Kentucky.

    The Anderson County senior rolled through the Governors’ Classic Tournament, winning the individual championship and leading the Lady Bearcats to the runner-up finish in the four team tournament, held at Woodford County Park on Saturday.

  • Final Four loss makes Wildcats...

    It still hurts.

    Not even the reality of the big “38” can overcome the pain of the “1” for any Kentucky basketball fan.

    At least, that one will sting for a long time. A real long time.

    After all, 38-1, as great as it is, is a long way from 40-0.
