  • Anderson all-stars host district...

    The Anderson County Little League 11-and-under all-star team is hosting the District 3 tournament this week at Legion Park.

    Over Father’s Day weekend, the all-stars traveled to Jeffersonville, Ind., to participate in the Jeffersonville/GRC Father’s Day weekend tournament.

    By the end of the holiday weekend the 10-member team had smiles on their faces and trophies in their hands.

    Anderson defeated the host Jeffersonville team 5-1 in the pool play opener, then defeated Corydon, Ind., 7-1, in the second game to earn the tournament's top seed.

  • Miss Congeniality

    Sandra Bullock has nothing on Cassie Fannin.

    Both have been named Miss Congeniality, but chances are that one of Hollywood's best has never tied a goat.

    Or barrel-raced. Or anything else involved in rodeo.

    Cassie Fannin has. And loves everything about it.

    Overcoming a fear of riding horses when she was 5 years old, the rising senior at Anderson County High School has become one of the Kentucky High School Rodeo Association's best performers.

  • LITTLE LEAGUE: Braves claim...

    The Anderson County Braves earned a trip to see the Cincinnati Reds.

    After a 15-7 victory over the White Sox in the Anderson County Little League junior division championship game, Braves manager Bryan Brothers vowed to hold up his promise from the beginning of the year that if the Braves won it all he would take them to Cincinnati to see a Reds game.

  • Drury: 'Through time, this...

    Anderson County basketball might in the midst of its biggest transformation since Glen Drury took over as head coach before the 1987-88 season.

    At least the Bearcats' task of replacing four starters this winter is the biggest since the 1997 team lost seven of its first eight players.

    Drury loses four starters and several key reserves off a team that finished 17-8, despite some key injuries and player attrition.

  • Barnes coaches at East-West game

    There were no fake pickoff moves. None of those trademark suicide squeeze plays.

    But there was quite a bit of baseball fun for Anderson County High School coach L.W. Barnes and his staff as they coached the West junior team in the annual East-West affair at the University of Louisville last Tuesday.

    “We were fortunate enough to split the double-header,” Barnes said. “We lost the first game, 7-5 and won the second, 7-3.”

  • COLUMN: Fishing trip can be...

    It’s summer in Kentucky. Mid- to upper-90’s and high humidity. Nothing feels quite like a Kentucky summer. Makes it hard to remember that string of extra cold days this past winter doesn’t it?  We left 90 degree temps in Florida after a week in hopes of finding a little cooler weather back home but that hasn’t quite worked out to our advantage. Definitely time to get the boat to the lake or river. A nice wade fishing trip in Salt River might even be in order.

  • COLUMN: Something missing in...

    Somewhere I must have really missed something.

    Maybe it was just because my TV was tuned to ESPN2 last Thursday night, not ESPN itself. While it seemed like the rest of the sports world around me was gushing over teenagers immediately becoming millionaires without finishing college, I was mesmerized by a 12-inning thriller in the College World Series.

  • All in the name

    Brandon Phillips came by The Anderson News office last Thursday.

    Really. He really did.

    He made the stop just a couple of hours after the Reds had beaten the Dodgers, 7-1.  Brandon Phillips went 2-for-3 in that one to raise his batting average to .311 for a season in which he should be getting serious consideration for the National League All-Star team.

  • Turpin first Lady Bearcat named...

    Courtney Turpin did not get much of a chance to show how big her softball bat is at the East-West All-Star games over the weekend.

    She walked four times and got just one hit for the West senior team in the series of games at the University of Kentucky. Turpin also pitched four scoreless innings on Saturday.
