  • SOFTBALL: Gilchrist throws no-...

    Kennedy Gilchrist threw a no-hitter as the Central Kentucky Batcats' 10-and-under team defeated the Greenup County Magic in the Blue Grass State Games on July 13. Gilchrist struck out nine and walked one. The Batcats eventually finished fifth out of 17 teams in the tournament. Gilchrist is the daughter of Ed and Melissa Gilchrist.

  • Seeing Stars

    Emily Hudson, left, and her aunt, Elizabeth Todd, both of Lawrenceburg, were mighty happy to have David Todd take their picture with Cincinnati Reds' third baseman Todd Frazier just before the Reds' showdown with the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 19. Frazier went 1-for-3 in the game and the Reds defeated their National League Central Division rivals, 5-3.

  • Danville team sweeps Mudcats for...

    Failure to take advantage of opportunities meant the Central Kentucky Mudcats' 16-and-under baseball team finished second in its own season-ending tournament Sunday evening.

    The Morse Mustangs defeated the Mudcats, 9-3 to force a winner-take-all championship game in the double-elimination tournament, then outlasted the Mudcats 5-4 in the second game.

    In the final, the Mudcats scratched out 11 hits, but stranded countless runners in scoring position to squander a golden opportunity to claim victory over one of the top summer baseball programs in Kentucky.

  • Local teams compete in Mudcat...

    The Central Kentucky Batcats 12-and-under softball team took second place in the Mudcats' Softball Classic, held Saturday and Sunday at Anderson County High School. The Batcats made it to the championship game before losing to the Hot Styx, from southeastern Kentucky, 2-1, in the final of the 7-team tournament.

  • Lady Bearcats seeking sponsors...

     The Anderson County High School girls' golf team will be the Fifth Annual "The Joy of Golf" Tournament on Saturday, Aug. 17.

  • Girls' golf: Riley looking...

    Kaitlyn Riley is a senior now and with that designation comes an all-new perspective on how she wants to end the golf season.

    “I hope I make it. That was my goal (in previous years),” Riley says of the state high school tournament. “This year, I want to be top 10.”

    It's a lofty goal in a sport where one bad swing, one misplay of the wind or one error in judging distance can be the difference between a championship joy and the tears of coming up short.

  • Girls' golf: Lady Bearcats...

    Expectations frame practically everything in high school sports.

    Few teams will reflect that truth more than the Anderson County girls' golf team this fall. The Lady Bearcats figure to be good. They expect to have one of the state's best golfers who should make quite a showing at the state meet. But they also know it will be extremely difficult for all of them to make the season's final tournament.

  • Boys' golf: A nice problem...

    It must be nice to have the kind of problems that surround the Anderson County boys' golf team this year.

    There are questions about the Bearcats, for sure, but they are questions like, “Can everyone get enough playing time to keep improving?” or the basic, “Who will play on the varsity?”

    Such is life when a team is loaded with talented golfers. Really talented golfers.

  • COLUMN: The games provide the...

    Usually, they are just games. They're diversions from everyday life.

    We leave our cares at the office, then behold Joey Votto's sweet swing or Brandon Phillips' wizardry at second base. We could be mesmerized by Magic Johnson running Showtime or Larry Bird just fundamentaling his opponent into submission. We marvel at the artistry of Adrian Peterson and the precision of Tom Brady.

    But the alarm clock goes off and the sun comes up on Monday morning for us to get right back to what we had tried to escape.
