  • 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.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats draw North...

    Don’t look now, but Anderson County could make a run for another Eighth Region baseball championship.

    The Bearcats would appear to be a slight favorite in the upper bracket of the regional tournament, which starts Monday at Simon Kenton High School.

    The Bearcats, who have won five of their last seven games, including two in last week’s 30th District tournament, will open the tournament against 29th District runner-up North Oldham at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 30.

    p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

    LOUISVILLE – Ryan Ratliff grimaced as the cushioning in the high jump pit enveloped him.

    He had just nicked the crossbar enough to dislodge it for the third time at 6-04 to go out of the state Class 3A Track and Field meet Saturday at the University of Louisville.

  • Bearcats hold off Collins for...

    The field wasn't the only thing sloppy at Collins High School on Thursday night.

    Anderson County (14-15, 5-1 in the district) took advantage of several early miscues by the Titans (18-6, 5-1) and then held on for a 10-7 victory and the 30th District Championship.

    “I was really proud of the way we came out early and played small ball, put the pressure on and capitalized off their mistakes,” coach L.W. Barnes said. “

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats defeat...

    Anderson County scored twice in the bottom of the fifth and twice more in the bottom of the sixth to break open a close game and cruise past pesky Spencer County in the 30th District tournament semi-final.

    Anderson advances to the district championship game and to the Eighth Region tournament with a 13-15 record.

    Check back for more details as they become available.

  • SOFTBALL: Collins ends Lady...

    Collins scored four unearned runs in the top of the first inning and that was all the Lady Titans would need to defeat Anderson County 4-0 in the semi-finals of the 30th District softball tournament at Shelby County Tuesday night.

    “It was nerves,” said Anderson coach Brian Glass.

    There was no other way to describe the way a team that had won five straight and seven of nine played against a team it had beaten twice in the regular season. But Collins turned a walk, a hit batter and an error into a first inning disaster for Anderson.

  • Ratliff leaves no doubt


    LEXINGTON – Ryan Ratliff was not going to leave anything to chance on Saturday.

    The Anderson County senior turned in what might have been his best performance ever when he easily cleared 6-06 to outlast Paul Dunbar’s Lamont Johnson and win the Class 3A, Region 6 high jump at Bryan Station High School.

    Nervous in his last chance at an elusive state championship?

    “Not really,” Ratliff said. “At least not until 6-06.”

  • Drury likes what he sees in All-...


    Anderson County basketball coach Glen Drury said his first weekend of working with the Kentucky All-Stars was a good one.

    “They played hard and they played together,” he said of the three-day mini-camp, held in Louisville over the weekend. “Our intra-squad scrimmage on Sunday was excellent.”

    Drury is leading one of the strongest Kentucky teams in recent years against a loaded Indiana group in the summer series that is sometimes called “The World Series of High School Basketball.”

  • Kentucky All-Stars to be here...

    The Kentucky Boys’ High School All-Stars will be conducting a public scrimmage at Anderson County High School on Monday, June 6 at 6:30 p.m.


    The Kentucky team, led by Mr. Basketball and LSU signee Anthony Hickey of Christian County, will be scrimmaging the Kentucky Junior All-Stars in preparation for the annual summer series against Indiana.
