  • Compete in Denmark Tourney
  • Title hopes end with walk-off...

    OWENSBORO – It is said that tears cleanse the soul, that they express what words cannot.

    Maybe that is why they were so profuse, so open, Saturday at Owensboro’s Jack Fisher Park.

    In all likelihood, those tears started streaming down the cheeks of the Anderson County Lady Bearcats before Danielle Walls’ home run ball came to earth.

  • Mitchell one of team’s most...

    The 160-mile drive did not deter Anderson County softball fans from descending on Owensboro last week for the state softball tournament.

    It shouldn’t come as a surprise. The Anderson faithful travel well. Very well. They always have and this year’s state tournament was no exception.

    Anderson didn’t have the biggest group of supporters by any stretch — that honor appeared to belong to state champion McCracken County — but the Lady Bearcat contingent was easily in the top four or five teams on the support scale.

  • Opening win over Central Hardin...

    Anderson Co. 6, Central Hardin 4

    Anderson, ranked No. 5 in the state, defeated No. 12 Central Hardin 6-4, despite leaving 13 runners on base.

  • Curry sets new state HR record

    When Anderson County catcher Bailey Curry blasted a monstrous home run against Male in the state softball tournament Saturday morning, she shattered the state single-season record she already shared.

    Curry’s shot was her 20th of the season, eclipsing the 19 she hit last year. Amber Riddle of Rowan County also hit 19 in 2008.

  • Former Lady Bearcat explains why...

    Makenzie Cann knew she had to follow her heart.

    A lifelong Kentucky Wildcat fan, Cann followed her dream when she announced last week that she would be enrolling at the University of Kentucky to join the women’s basketball team as a preferred walk on.

    Cann, a two-time all-state selection at Anderson County High School, played her freshman season at the University of Cincinnati, playing in all 31 of the Bearcats’ games and being the team’s fourth-leading scorer. Cann announced she was leaving. Cincinnati in early May.
