  • BASEBALL: Bearcats upset...

    The sting of a trying season might last a while for Anderson County baseball bu the Bearcats showed over the final week of the season they still had some punch left.

    The Bearcats upset defending state champion Woodford County Saturday at Chandler Field in Versailles. Senior Zach Mason got the win with perhaps the strongest pitching performance of his career. Mason threw five innings, giving up four hits and three walks while surrendering only one earne run.

    Woodford was ranked eighth in the state in the final regular-season poll.

  • Yett medals in two events at...

    LOUISVILLE -- Anderson County did not finish among the team leaders at the state Class 3A track and field meet Saturday, but there were still plenty of smiles in the Bearcat camp.

    The meet was held at the University of Louisville.

    “To see how we did as a unit, it is quite an improvement,” Anderson assistant coach Jason Dickerson said. Dickerson was in charge of the team as head coach Robert Meacham was fulfilling a military commitment.

  • BASEBALL canceled Friday

    Anderson County's baseball game at Danville, scheduled for Friday night, has been canceled, Anderson athletic director Rick Sallee told The Anderson News Friday morning.

    There will be no make-up date.

    The Bearcats play at Woodford County on Saturday at noon.  Post-season play begins with the 30th District Tournament Tuesday night vs. Collins at Shelby County at 6 p.m.

  • BASEBALL: No place like home!

    It would come as no surprise if word leaked that Anderson County's baseball team had gotten together, clicked its collective heels three times and said, “There's no place like home. There's no place like home.”

    A 12-4 win over a Scott County team shooting for its 20th win Monday evening indicated there really is no place like home.

  • COLUMN: Ready or not, tourney...

    It's safe to say that the 2013 baseball-softball season has been one full of surprises around Anderson County.

    Not many expected the Anderson County High School softball team to be sitting at 21-9 heading into this week. Few really thought the Lady Bearcats would spend some time in the Top 25, although they dropped out last week. And not many really thought of Anderson as a legitimate threat to make its first state tournament appearance since 2008.

  • TRACK: Eight Bearcats qualify...

    LEXINGTON – Eight might be enough for some people, but not for Anderson County track.

    Last Thursday, at Lafayette High School, eight Bearcats qualified for seven events this week's Class AAA state meet meet, to be held Saturday at the University of Louisville. It is the highest number of Anderson entries in recent years, but Anderson coach Robert Meacham sees his team's showing as a preview of what could be some stellar track years on the horizon.

  • Net Cats shut out in rain-...

     To say the Region 8 tennis tournament experienced a wacky week is an understatement. Saying it did not go as Anderson County had hoped is not.

    The Bearcats and Lady Bearcats were shut out of state qualifiers in a week that might have been dominated by the weather more than anyone's serve or backhand. Monday's first round was delayed, delayed again, then eventually called after a few matches because of rains that threatened all week.

  • 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.

  • TRACK: Eight Anderson performers...

    (UPDATE: As of Sunday afternoon, all eight performers named below have been officially listed in the state meet by the KHSAA.)

    Eight Anderson County High School track performers have advanced to the state meet, to be held Saturday at the University of Louisville.
