  • New's team takes title

    Kelsey New, of Anderson County, is a member of the Louisville Outrage softball team this summer. The team opened play with a championship in the USFA Knockout 16-and-under tournament, held in Brandenburg over the weekend. The team went 5-0 to take the tournament title.


    Earlier this summer, New had been named to the 30th District All-Tournament team as a member of the team at Anderson County High School.

  • Batcats take Versailles tourney

    The Central Kentucky Batcats 12-and-under softball team won the Memorial Madness Softball Tournament held May 28-29, in Versailles. The 12U division featured 18 teams located throughout Kentucky and Indiana.


    The Batcats went 7-0 in the tournament scoring 60 runs and only allowing five.


    In the championship game against the Louisville Stunners, the Batcats were down 1-0 going into the top of the sixth inning.  Kylee Kearns led off the top of the sixth inning with a walk and was sacrificed to second by Kaci Currens. 

  • Meet an All-Star: Zach Price

    Basketball coaches know to look down if they want to know who they will potentially look up to.  And Zach Price showed he could be a force long before he became a big-time recruit.

    “At an early age, I had big feet,” the 6-foot-10 product of Jeffersontown High School says with an easy smile. “I had size 16 shoes in the fourth grade.” Those days in Cleveland, Ohio might have been difficult but Price stuck things out.

  • Ratliff off to UK

    In a perfect world, Ryan Ratliff would have signed his NCAA national letter-of-intent in blue ink. It would have matched his blood.


    And last Wednesday, the Anderson County high jumper officially became a Kentucky Wildcat in a signing ceremony at the high school, inking with the school that has had his heart ever since he was old enough to know the difference between a three-pointer and a slam dunk.


    “UK has always been my favorite school,” Ratliff said. “Once I got the green light from UK, I was set on that.”

  • Kentucky All-Stars here Monday

    It might be the greatest accumulation of basketball talent to ever take the floor at Anderson County High School when the Kentucky All-stars come to town Monday night.

  • BASEBALL: Anderson falls in...

    INDEPENDENCE – Anderson County showed up for the Eighth Region baseball tournament. Bearcat baseball did not.


    North Oldham scored four times in the top of the first, then took advantage of numerous Bearcat mistakes to coast to an 8-3 win in the opening game of the tournament, being played at Simon Kenton High School.

  • COLUMN: District title not a...

    There was a time not too long ago when Anderson County baseball had a rather simple view of postseason success.


    Basically, it was draw opposite Shelby County in the district tournament and just to make the regional. There were exceptions to that, of course. The most notable was a district championship in 1988, but that is the brightest light for the program between regional tournament victories in 1983 and 1999.

  • BASEBALL: North Oldham ends...

    INDEPENDENCE -- North Oldham scored four runs in the top of the first inning, then took advantage of numerous Anderson County miscues to claim an 8-3 win in the opening game of the Eighth Region tournament, being played at Simon Kenton High School.

    The Bearcats had several chances but never could get the key hit. The Anderson defense gave North Oldham three unearned runs, effectively taking away any chance to play small ball and manufacture runs.
