  • Lady Cats earn regional tennis...

    The Anderson County girls’ tennis team might be growing up if last week’s matches are any indication.

    The Lady Bearcats, with one senior and a freshman and an eighth-grader being the only players with varsity experience before this season, won two of three matches, defeating Shelby County and Spencer County on the home courts.

  • Anderson explodes, defeats...

    Anderson County’s explosion started so unexpectedly. It happened so quickly. But by the time it was over, the Lady Bearcats had made Collins pay dearly.

    Anderson erupted for 8 unearned runs in the bottom of the second inning, then cruised to a 12-4 win over visiting Collins Tuesday night. Anderson gained a quick advantage in the 30th District seeding race, defeating the only district team that has beaten the Lady Bearcats since 2012.

  • Lady Cats falter in Frankfort...

    FRANKFORT – Anderson County can only hope softball history repeats itself.

    The Lady Bearcats appeared ready to run roughshod through the Capital City Showcase at Frankfort’s Lakeview Park over the weekend but instead suffered the sting of a 7-1 loss to 30th District rival Collins in Saturday’s semifinal game.

    It was the same Collins team the Lady Bearcats had pounded, 12-4, less than two weeks before.

  • Beasley’s first HR comes at good...

    It would be stretching things a bit to say Jenni Beasley knew her line drive was going out of the park last Thursday.

    “It felt good coming off the bat, but I had never hit a home run before,” the Anderson County High School freshman said with a huge smile.

    It wasn’t just Beasley’s first varsity home run, but first one, period. Any level.

  • Bearcats defeat Henry for first...
  • Bearcats making progress in...
  • Barnes staying positive through...

    The late Joe Garagiola always said baseball is a funny game.

    It’s true enough at the major league level, where, most years, the difference between the absolute best and absolute worst teams is less than two games a week.

    If the game is funny in its highest realm, it can be downright puzzling at the high school level. It has manifested itself as such in Anderson County this spring.

  • Riley named NAIA Golfer of the...

    Anderson County native Kaitlyn Riley was named national Women’s Golfer of the Week by the NAIA last Wednesday.

    Riley, a sophomore at the University of the Cumberlands, graduated from Anderson County High School in 2014.

    According to a news release from the university, Riley was honored for her play the week the week of March 28-April 3.

  • Bearcat roller coaster finishes...

    SHELBYVILLE -- The Collins and Anderson County baseball teams could spent their entire summers at Kings Island and not have a roller coaster ride like they experienced Tuesday night.

    Collins spotted the visiting Bearcats an early six-run lead, then rallied again to overcome a 5-run deficit before holding on for a wild 13-12 30th District win.

    Whew! You could get tired just trying to say what happened.

  • Lady Cats take 4 of 5 in Florida

    Anderson County saw its eight-game winning streak come to an end when Owensboro Apollo defeated the Lady Bearcats, 7-2, in the final game of the Florida Beach Bash softball extravaganza Friday in Fort Walton Beach.

    The week of softball is not a tournament, but simply scheduled games between teams from several states that converge on the area for spring break.

    Anderson, ranked No. 6 in the state in last week’s poll, finished the week with four wins in five games.
