  • State champs!

    The Anderson County Middle School softball team captured the Kentucky state championship Saturday night with a 3-2 win over previously undefeated Scott County in the final game at Cardinal Run Park in Lexington.

    Scott had defeated Anderson, 10-2, in a pool play game earlier in the tournament. The first two games of the tournament were pool play, sending teams to a single elimination tournament format later in the tournament.

  • TENNIS: Anderson tennis has...

    Tuesday was a tough day for Anderson County tennis as all of the Bearcat hopes for state tournament berths went by the wayside.

  • Sports briefs for May 8, 2013

    Jay Smith was named the Most Valuable Player as the Anderson County High School boys' basketball team celebrated a 22-5 season at the annual team banquet on April 28.

    Smith, who will play basketball collegiately at Transylvania University, also received the awards for Most Defensive Rebounds, Most Steals, Most Assists, Free Throw Percentage, and the Leadership Award.

    Smith shared the Academic Award with manager Katie Rogers and shared the Keith Foster Most Committed Award with Kyle Sutherland.

  • SOCCER: Lady Mustangs honor...

    The Anderson County Middle School girls' soccer team recently honored the eight-grade members of the team before a 6-0 win over Lincoln County.

    During the game, eighth-graders Billie Clark and Lucero Ramos scored out of the offense and another, Brooke Snider, connected on a penalty kick. Seventh graders Taylor Harley, Kinsey Robers and Caitlyn Stumph also scored for Anderson. Goalie Hannah Drury recorded a shutout.

  • SOFTBALL: Rivalry gets ailing...

    There's nothing like a good old-fashioned rivalry to get a softball team out of a little bit of a funk.

    Granted, Anderson County did not blow 30th District foe Shelby County off the field last Thursday, getting just five hits in a 3-0 home field win.

    And to be sure, the Shelby County of 2013, while vastly improved since the first time the teams had met nearly a month before, is not the same Shelby that was locked in a perennial battle with Anderson for Eighth Region supremacy just a few years back.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats battle...

    NEW CASTLE – This one could have hurt. Badly.

    Clinging to a razor-thin margin that had looked like a sure blowout just two innings before and seeing the tying run ready to charge just 90 feet away and still two outs to go, somehow Anderson County held on.

    When Anderson left hander Brandon Eliadis got Henry County batter Dylan Adams on a called third strike to end the Bearcats' 8-7 win, there were simultaneous sighs of relief and shouts of jubilation.

  • TRACK: Busy Yett gets top prize...

    LEXINGTON – Tyson Yett was one busy young man Friday night.

    The Anderson County High School junior would take some time working his craft near one end zone of Robert J. Bell Stadium, then head to the center of the stadium for another job before heading back to his previous work area at the Central Kentucky Conference track meet.

  • COLUMN: Living a dream

    There is just something about those quiet types, you know.

    Not a lot of chatter, not a lot of extraneous noise. When they talk, it's generally to the point.

    In the lustrous annals of University of Kentucky basketball, there probably have been few quieter than A'dia Mathies.

    That means when she speaks, we'd do well to listen.
