  • COLUMN: A fitting tribute

    For most of my life, I had known Rick Crawford as that red-haired guy whose parents lived just a short piece down the road.

    He was an Anderson County sports fan. The guy that sometimes called me up on Saturday to talk about what happened when the Bearcats played the night before.

    I knew he had played on an undefeated football team at Georgetown College.

    And I knew that the Tigers might never be as good on the field as Alabama, or USC, but that didn’t matter to Rick. To him, the Tigers were better.

  • THE SPORTS BUZZ for April 29:...

    Welcome to The Sports Buzz, which gives you a chance to sound off on sports. I'll start the discussion with a short column on a topic, or two, or three, or.... Well, you get the idea.  You can comment at the bottom of the page.

    All we ask is that you stay on one of the posted topics and abide by the terms of service.

    So, I take the mound with the bases loaded and nobody out. Enjoy.

    Anderson baseball going for a regular season district championship Thursday night

  • Cats show Holy Cross,...

    LOUISVILLE – Anderson County showed it can play some mean baseball in the Louisville Invitational Tournament, but the Bearcats left with a little taste of the “what might have been.”

    Anderson won a pair of games by the mercy rule but also felt its own generosity prevented a clean sweep in the extravaganza.

    The 40-team tournament does not crown a champion but brings many of the best teams from around Kentucky into Louisville for an intensive weekend of baseball.

    Anderson’s three games were played at Holy Cross High School.

  • 'Biggest win'

    VERSAILLES – Anderson County was finally at full strength Saturday.

    The results of the Woodford County Invitational track meet clearly showed what that means.

    After nearly a month of trips, spring break, injuries, a prom and just about anything else imaginable keeping the Bearcats from having everyone at a meet, they responded Saturday with a performance that fourth-year coach Travis Gay called “the biggest win since we have been here.”

  • Bearcats pound Dunbar

    Two Anderson County baseball players belted home runs as the Bearcats routed Dunbar, 7-2 on Monday night.

    Jacob Brown and Jacob Russell both went deep in the first inning and senior lefty Daniel Dadisman picked up the victory as the Bearcats improved to 12-8 on the year. Anderson will host Eminence with the top seed in the 30th District tournament on the line Thursday night.

    For a complete look at the Bearcats' win over Dunbar, see Wednesday's edition of The Anderson News.

  • Anderson wins Big Eight Classic

    The Anderson County fast-pitch softball team routed Dunbar, 11-0, to win the Big Eight Classic at George Rogers Clark High School on Saturday night. The game went the full seven innings. Anderson had beaten the host team and Woodford County to get to the championship game.

    The Lady Cats will play at Louisville's Presentation Academy Monday night.

    For complete details of the Lady Cats' tournament championship, pick up a copy of the April 29 edition of The Anderson News.

  • Bearcats take two of three in...

    Anderson County won two of three games in the Louisville Invitational Tournament played at Holy Cross High School. The Bearcats won a pair of games by the “mercy rule,” but a late breakdown against DeSales prevented the Bearcats from sweeping their three games.

    DeSales 8, Anderson Co. 6

  • Penny named to Kentucky All-Stars

    Anderson County All-Stater C.J. Penny has been named to the Kentucky All-Star team that will be playing the Indiana All-Stars this summer. The team was announced Wednesday.

    Penny, who averaged 22 points and 11 rebounds a game, was named to the team after tryouts at Campbellsville University over the weekend.

  • Bearcat baseball set for...

    The Anderson County baseball team is to play at Louisville Holy Cross on Thursday night at 6:45, then return to Louisville to play DeSales and Paintsville in a double-header beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday.

    The games are part of the 40-team Louisville Invitational Tournament, which is really not a championship bracket. Instead it is a gathering of the top-ranked teams in the state playing across the city.

  • Lady Bearcats show they plan to...

    SHELBYVILLE – With a month to go in the regular season, there is little doubt about which softball team is at the top of the Eighth Region.

    At least Anderson County is at the top of what is generally considered the region’s toughest district.

    The Lady Cats, already ranked 14th in the state and the defending regional champion, established that it is planning on making a return trip to Owensboro with a 6-0 win on a chilly night at Shelby County last Wednesday.
