  • SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Lady Bearcats...

    While Anderson County got a leg up on the seeding race for the 30th District Tournament with wins over Collins and Shelby County, the rest of the Lady Bearcats’ week left much to be desired, according to Anderson coach Brian Glass.


    The Lady Bearcats dropped three of four games, including one to regional foe Henry County in the Oldham County Spring Break Classic on Saturday.

  • The Numbers Don't Lie

    If DeAndre Liggins’ 3-point attempt in the final seconds had found the net on Saturday, Anderson County Middle School students might have had a lesson on the probability of the shot going down and the Kentucky Wildcats winning a national championship.

    While Liggins’ attempt was short and Connecticut moved on to Monday’s NCAA championship game, teachers and students at the school were in big Final Four spirit during Friday’s “Jorts Day” for seventh-graders.

  • SOFTBALL: Not rivalry-like as...

    The 35-degree temperatures were not softball-like, but Anderson County's 12-2 rout of Shelby County last Wednesday was not rivalry-like either.

    The Lady Bearcats pounded 11 hits and took advantage of seven Shelby errors and a host of other Lady Rocket mistakes to post the most one-sided win in the series since Anderson won 15-0 to open the 2003 season.

  • BASEBALL: Eight-run third -- on...

    It makes no difference who the opponent is, when a team is 0-5, any win is sweet.

    Anderson County baseball knew that after beating district foe Eminence 12-1 last Tuesday night.

    Granted, Eminence is rarely a threat to the Bearcats. The tiny school is one of the state's smallest and is the program that was on the wrong end of a 58-0 drubbing from the Bearcats three years ago. Last Tuesday's encounter was the sixth straight time the Bearcats had invoked the “mercy rule” with at least a 10-run lead after five innings.

  • COLUMN: In love with The Young...

    Go on, admit it.


    Admit that back on Feb. 23 you thought Kentucky’s chances of playing in the Final Four were roughly equal to those of Charles Barkley becoming commissioner of the Big East.


    It’s OK. Really.


    No one else did, either.


    Not when you are losing to Arkansas. Not when you are 7-6 in the SEC with Florida, Vandy and Tennessee (in Knoxville) as the next three bumps in the road.

  • FOOTBALL: Peach says Bearcats...

    It is still almost five months until Anderson County opens the 2011 football season at Bryan Station on August 19, but the Bearcats got a good look at what they should be able to do in spring practice, which ended last Friday.


    Anderson was able to practice 10 times in a three-week span, as allowed by Kentucky High School Athletic Association rules.
    “Overall it went really well,” said Anderson coach Mark Peach. “We had around 30 boys out for spring practice.


    “I thought we had a great attitude.”

  • SOFTBALL: Bearcats split four...

    Anderson County showed why the Lady Bearcats have the potential to emerge as the Eighth Region’s best team with a good showing in the Ballard Invitational Tournament, held Friday and Saturday in Louisville.


    The Lady Bearcats split four games, defeating Madisonville-North Hopkins 6-5 in extra innings and Beaumont, a team from near Cleveland, Ohio, 9-2. Ballard defeated the Lady Bearcats 9-1 and perennial state power Owensboro Catholic, ranked third in the state, slipped past Anderson 3-2 in extra innings.

  • TRACK: Bearcats heat up on cold...

    FRANKFORT – With temperatures so cold that spectators looked like they were headed to a late-season football game instead of a track meet, there was only one thing Anderson County could do Friday.


    Run faster to stay warm.


    The Bearcats had a good showing at the ultra-competitive Wolverine Open Friday, probably a bit better than the placings would indicate. The Anderson boys finished ninth out 15 teams that scored, while the Lady Bearcats were 12th of 15.

    Bearcat baseball struggles in early season
    Anderson County baseball saw its season-opening losing streak run to five games with losses to three Louisville schools in the latest diamond action.
    DeSales whipped the Bearcats 9-2 in the first game of the Charger Classic, held at Bullitt East High School Friday night.
    “DeSales threw their number one (pitcher), and we hit him hard, but often right at their defense,” said Anderson coach L.W. Barnes.
