  • '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.

  • Anderson wins Big Eight Classic

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Lady Bearcats host Butler, fans...

    The Anderson County Lady Bearcats, ranked 14th in the latest statewide softball poll, host Louisville Butler on Tuesday afternoon at 6 p.m. Butler is ranked 16th in the same poll.

    Because of construction of a new field house near the field, fans must make an alternate entrance to the softball facility.

  • Lady Cat tennis posts three wins...

    The Anderson County girls’ tennis team has quietly been putting up good rounds of tennis in the first half of the season.

    The Lady Bearcats had a good week last week, recording two wins against a loss against one of the region’s better teams.

    Tuesday, Bullitt East defeated the Lady Cats 3-2 on the Anderson courts with Anderson’s wins coming from singles’ players Anne-Marie Detherage and Jessica Damron.

  • COLUMN: Nothing little about it

    About the only thing Little about the Anderson County League is the field where baseball is being played this summer.

    The infield is about 2/3 the size of a major league field and the outfield proportionately less in keeping with the idea that the next Jay Bruce or Ryan Howard is just beginning to learn how to use formulas to figure his batting average.

    The fence is about 200 feet from home plate and the heat rarely comes to the plate in excess of 50 miles per hour.

    But it’s still baseball.
