  • SOFTBALL: Peavler's super...

    TAYLORSVILLE – Mackenzie Peavler deserved a better fate.

    The record will show that the Anderson County sophomore pitcher dropped a 3-2 decision in eight innings at Spencer County last Thursday. It marked Anderson's seventh straight loss, the longest such streak at Anderson since the KHSAA began keeping seasonal records in 2002.

    And that record does not do justice to how Peavler turned in perhaps the finest effort of her varsity softball career and was still tagged with the loss.

  • BASEBALL: West Jessamine...

    West Jessamine spotted Anderson County an early 1-0 lead then scored nine times over a four-inning stretch to defeat the host Bearcats, 9-3, last Wednesday.

    Houston Barber belted a home run and a double and Austin Dunn doubled twice to lead the West Jessamine attack. Seven different Colt batters drove in runs.

    The Bearcats were unable to muster much of anything against West Jessamine pitchers Zach Settles and Josh Carroll. Settles scattered six hits and gave up one earned run over four innings to get the win. Carroll came on to pitch three innings of one-hit ball in relief.

  • COLUMN: Remember where you were...

    Of course you remember where you were on Sept. 11, 2001.


    You’ll never forget. You can’t erase the memories of seeing planes fly into the World Trade Center. Nor can anyone expunge the memory of seeing the most visible symbols of American economic might buckle, tilt slightly, then seeing all 110 stories come tumbling down.


    Nearly 3,000 lives were snuffed out that day.

  • TENNIS: On the road again, and...

    Imagine having a basketball team making its strongest showing in years only to lose its playing floor a few weeks before March Madness.

    Or how about a baseball team only being able to use the batting cage in the weeks leading up to the post-season?

    If you can comprehend a team dealing with those hypothetical scenarios, then you have a notion of what the Anderson County High School tennis teams are dealing with as regional tournament play begins on May 16.

  • BASEBALL: Watts fires no-hitter...

    Anderson County junior Steven Watts showed why the Bearcats have been expecting big things from him on Saturday.


    The right-hander fired a no-hitter in the Bearcats’ 1-0 win over Bardstown in the Nall Wooden Bat Classic, held at LaRue County.


    It is believed that Watts’ gem is Anderson’s first no-hitter since Eric McDonald threw one in the 2005 season.

  • Marquardt hurls perfect game

    Lane Marquardt, shown in action in last year’s state tournament for the Anderson County 11-year-old All-Stars, fired a perfect game for the Reds in Anderson County Little League action last Monday. Marquardt not only did not allow any Dodger to reach base, he struck out all 18 hitters.

  • Mustangs run record to 18-2

    The Anderson County Middle School baseball team scored come-from-behind victories over Marion County, 7-6, and Oldham County, then whipped St. Dominic last week to run their record to 18-2.  Although they took an an early 2 - 0 lead over Marion, the Mustangs found themselves trailing 6 - 3 headed into their last at-bat in the bottom of the fifth inning. Catcher Brice Stockton singled, second baseman Josh Brown walked, and third baseman Christopher Sea’s single brought in one run.
