  • Spencer sweeps season series

    Spencer County survived repeated Anderson County threats to post a 3-2 baseball win over the Bearcats Friday night in Taylorsville.

    The contest was the completion of a suspended game that had started three nights earlier. Anderson had taken a 2-0 lead in the top of the first when rain and lightning forced officials to stop play.

    When the teams got back together Friday, Spencer wasted no time tying things up on a two-run home run by Lucas Tackett off Anderson pitcher Luke Dowell.

    Anderson improved to 18-6 on the year while Shelby fell to 14-9. The game did not count in the 30th District seeding race.

    Anderson had defeated Shelby, 3-0, two weeks earlier in Lawrenceburg.

    Things have certainly changed since that first time I got a check for writing something for publication.

  • Thompson edges older teammate...

    Henry Thompson was just wanting to make sure he didn’t mess up.

    Chance Wayne admits he was shaking.

    But when all the scores were tabulated, Thompson, a seventh-grader, and Wayne, a senior, had taken the top two spaces in the KHSAA state archery tournament last Thursday at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

    By a matter of inches, Thompson won the state championship in his first state tournament. Wayne finished second in his last.

  • Peach excited as Cats complete...

    Entering his 12th year at the helm of Anderson County football, Mark Peach remains a combination of the old school work ethic and modern innovations.

    And he remains more positive than a roomful of protons.

    “I can’t remember being more excited after spring practice,” Peach said last week after the Bearcats conducted their annual spring game last Wednesday.

  • Lady Cats falter in Frankfort...

    FRANKFORT – Anderson County can only hope softball history repeats itself.

    The Lady Bearcats appeared ready to run roughshod through the Capital City Showcase at Frankfort’s Lakeview Park over the weekend but instead suffered the sting of a 7-1 loss to 30th District rival Collins in Saturday’s semifinal game.

    It was the same Collins team the Lady Bearcats had pounded, 12-4, less than two weeks before.
