  • SOFTBALL: Powerful win but not...

    SHELBYVILLE – There were plenty of reasons for Anderson County to be happy Monday night, but the Lady Bearcats' 30th District win over Collins was far from perfect.

    To be sure, Anderson flexed its muscles quickly with a five-run uprising in the top of the first. The Lady Bearcats added another in the second but instead of coasting to a rout, Anderson had to work for the win.

  • Bearcat baseball travels to...

    Anderson County's baseball team is scheduled to travel to Shelby County Tuesday evening for an important 30th District matchup.

    The game had originally been scheduled for Anderson County but with the Bearcats' home field still not ready for play after some off-season renovation, the game was moved to Shelby. First pitch is set for 5:45 with the junior varsity game to follow.

  • Anderson track leaps into new...

     

    Anderson County is looking to make a giant leap during this year's high school track season.

    Literally.

    “We come in and jump,” Anderson coach Robert Meacham says with a grin. “We compete in the jumping events.”

    Indeed. The Bearcats jump long. They jump high. They triple jump and they pole vault. Anderson has at least one, sometimes two, who could be contending for a berth in the state meet or a regional championship next month.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats take two in...

    Anderson County baseball showed it is far too early to write the Bearcats off in 2013.

    A week after mustering one hit in two games, the Bearcats rolled past Louisville Eastern and Bowling Green to take two of three games in the Bowling Green/Warren County Invitational.

    Anderson did have trouble against Ballard Memorial, mustering just three hits in a 3-1 loss.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Bearcat softball...

    Anderson County softball continues to be impressive early in the season, despite losing its first game of the year during its annual spring break trek to the beaches of Gulf Shores, Ala.

    The Lady Bearcats split two games, defeating Baldwin County but losing to Spanish Fort, both from Alabama, where teams have been playing since late February.

    Against Baldwin County, Bailey Curry smacked three hits and Madison Brummett drove in three runs in a 9-2 win for the Lady Bearcats last Tuesday.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Bearcats explode...

    SHELBYVILLE – Good teams will make you pay for extra outs, according to the old diamond truth.

    A Shelby County error prolonged the top of the fourth inning and Anderson County showed why it feels it is becoming a good team Monday night.

    The Lady Bearcats had seven consecutive batters reach base – six of them scored – in the decisive inning on their way to a 7-0 win in a key 30th District matchup at the Shelby County athletic complex.

  • COLUMN: Let the debate begin

    Well now, about the only thing left for college basketball in this state is for someone suit up a team from Waddy U. just to split the difference between Kentucky and Louisville.

    Two years and two champions just down the road from each other.

    Maybe a team from Alton or Tyrone can join them?

    Really, though, what a run for the Commonwealth the last two years and it might just continue.
