  • COLUMN: Change inevitable,...

    When you’ve been writing sports 28 years, the names and the games often run together and the details blur or fade away.

    But you distinctly remember the big game-winners.

    You don’t forget Miranda Drury's line drive between shortstop and third base to end a 14-inning regional tournament thriller, Seth Carmichael connecting with Matt Sprague to beat Conner or C.J. Penny's 3-pointer to beat Shelby County.

    And I remember the night Tracy Wells showed up late for a girls' basketball game.

  • OUTDOORS: Ponds and small lakes...

    Rapidly changing weather can play havoc on early spring fishing.

    The possibility of cold fronts, rain and sunny afternoons, all in one week, often make it difficult to correctly time a fishing trip. But, the one true constant of spring fishing is that ponds and small lakes warm up before larger bodies of water.

  • Little League Opening Day...

    Opening Day Ceremonies for Anderson County Little League, scheduled for Saturday, have been canceled. The ceremony has been rescheduled for Saturday, April 27.

    Players should contact their team coaches concerning game schedules.

  • Spring football game rescheduled

    The Anderson County High School football team spring game, originally set for Friday night, has been rescheduled for Monday, April 22 at 7 p.m. due to Friday's inclement weather. Bearcat coach Mark Peach has also announced that following the game, there will be a community forum on behalf of the Anderson County Bearcat Youth Football League.

  • Martin roars through PDGA...

    Michael Martin, a sophomore at Anderson County High School, won the Rec Division of the 4-day Professional Disc Golf Association Ameteur Championships, held in Bowling Green over the weekend. Martin took a class of 147 disc golfers and led after all four rounds. 

    Martin said he just did what his coach, Ricky Spaulding, advised, “Just go for the par and the birdies will come.”

    Martin is a member of the school disc golf team, the Lawrenceburg Disc Golf Association, the Bluegrass Disc Golf Association and the Professional Disc Golf Association.

  • All-region performers

Pictured are, from left, Anderson boys' basketball coach Glen Drury, all-region performers Jay Smith, Makenzie Cann and Eriel McKee and Anderson County girls' basketball coach Tony Kays.

  • TRACK: Bearcats get win,...

    The Anderson County boys' track team scored an impressive win at Collins last Tuesday, outdistancing the host school, 104-96 in a five-team all-comers meet.

    The Bearcats got strong performances from Casey Moninger, who won the 400-meter dash with a 52.60 time, and Connor Duncan, who took the 300-meter hurdles (42.96) and placed second in the 110-meter event (17.66)  while Tyson Yett took the triple jump with 38-feet-10-inch effort.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats look to move...

    TAYLORSVILLE – About all Anderson County could do was tip their hats to Spencer County and move on last Friday.

    The Bears took advantage of seven Anderson walks, another hit batter and two Anderson errors to post an 11-1 five-inning win in a game rescheduled from a day earlier because of rain.

    Spencer collected only seven hits – just one of those for extra bases, but waited out Anderson starter Brandon Eliadis for seven walks to notch its first win over the Bearcats since 2009.

  • BASEBALL: Four Western Hills...

    FRANKFORT – The walk from the right field corner back to the Anderson County dugout was slow and painful last Tuesday.

    “They are a little deflated right now,” Bearcat baseball coach L.W. Barnes said following the team meeting to discuss a 5-0 loss at Western Hills.  “We had been playing really good baseball and then didn't get the job done today.”

    Cotton, Anderson's starting pitcher, gave up two earned runs – one of those might have been a bit of a fluke – and six hits over four innings.

  • COLUMN: No home field advantage...

    You have heard of the home field advantage, but what about the home field non-advantage?

    That is the case for several Anderson County High School sports teams right now. If you want to put the most positive spin on things, it's not good.

    Truthfully, it is an embarrassment to the programs, the school and Anderson County.

    If you have been following Bearcat baseball this spring, you know that as of April 16, Anderson has not had a home baseball game yet. That is over a month since the start of the 2013 season.
