    Anderson County's defense betrayed the Bearcats on Saturday as Louisville Butler took advantage of three Anderson errors in a 4-3 win Barnes Memorial Field.

    Team unity or house divided?

  • Stung by last year's loss,...

    All anyone needs to know about why Anderson County's girls are picked as the team to beat by the Eighth Region softball coaches was on display two weeks ago in Diddle Arena.

    About 30 minutes after Anderson had been eliminated from the Sweet 16, the Lady Bearcats emerged from their locker room. Freshman Bailey Curry and sophomore Mia Aldridge were still crying and did not mind anyone seeing them in that condition.

    Now it's the same people but a different sport.
