  • TRACK AND FIELD: Anderson...

    LOUISVILLE -- Things are just different when the stage is the biggest.

    Just ask Anderson County track performers Tiffany Yount and Cameron Robinson. They made the Class 3A state track meet, held Saturday at the University of Louisville's Cardinal Park, but neither was particularly happy with the result.

  • BOYS' TENNIS: Anderson pair...

    LEXINGTON – This time, there was little else Ty Glover and T.J. Pham could do.

    The magic that had carried them in a surprising run through the Eighth Region and to a berth in the state tennis tournament suddenly came to an end last Thursday. The DuPont Manual team of Sam and Aaron Stromberg saw to that.

    The Stromberg brothers turned back everything that Glover and Pham could muster on the way to a 6-1, 6-2 win in the first round of the tournament at the University of Kentucky.

    “They were the best we have played,” said Pham, a junior.

  • COLLEGE: Warford an All-American...

    Asbury University senior outfielder Mary Ann Warford has been named to the 2012 Capital One Academic All-America College Division Softball Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America. Warford is the first Eagle in school history to take home the prestigious award. The team is comprised of student-athletes from NAIA, Canadian and two-year institutions.

    The end of the school year is always one of the busiest -- and wackiest -- times of the year in prep sports.

    Last week, I was at the University of Kentucky on Thursday for state tennis and at the University of Louisville on Saturday for state track.

    Monday, I was at Spencer County High School for district softball and last night was scheduled to be at Collins High in Shelbyville for district baseball.

    The Anderson County High School baseball and softball teams extended their tournament dominance of the 30th District when both won championships Wednesday night.

    Incorrect schedules and pairings for the 30th District softball tournaments appeared in the print edition of the May 16 Anderson News.

    LEXINGTON – Anderson County was reminded again just how difficult it is to be able to qualify for the state track and field meet last Friday.

    Despite having six performers turn in personal bests in seven different events, only two Bearcats were able to advance out of the Class AAA, Region 6 meet.

    And long jumper Tiffany Yount and pole vaulter Cameron Robinson had to sweat it out before confirming that they will be in action at the state, to be held on Saturday at the University of Louisville.

    It's hard to long for the good old days when the “old” is roughly equivalent to the duration of Justin Bieber's career.

    But that's life in these 4G days when things are obsolete just about the time you get used to them.

    And some might think that is how it is with Anderson County's spring dynasty.

    If you have been around Anderson County any time at all, you know that I am talking about that period in late May and early June when Anderson County has been shining in high school baseball and softball.

  • SOFTBALL: Smoking bats lead...

    Anderson County softball was bitten by the Bullitt during the Lady Bearcats' own tournament over the weekend, yet there were some hints that things could be getting better as the post-season arrives next week.

    The Lady Bearcats fell twice to Bullitt Central, first in a 3-2 pool play decision on Friday night, then 2-0 in the tournament championship game on Saturday.

    In between, the Lady Bearcats defeated Eighth Region foe Owen County, 5-3, and an under-rated North Hardin team, 3-2, in other tournament games.
