    I can’t remember ever writing a column like this one in more than three decades at the keyboard, but that’s good.

    Or at least I think it should be new ground when I talk about the future of Anderson County High School softball.

  • Cruel end mirrored season of...

    They’d endured so much in their quest for a state softball championship.

    They’d gone into a season without some of the key cogs from their Final Four run of 2015. A few had graduated. That’s normal.

    But then a few expected to fill key roles opted to stay off the diamond in 2016. It happens.

    Yet Anderson County began the season ranked as the sixth best team in Kentucky and a heavy favorite to win its third straight Eighth Region championship.

    But the Lady Cats’ sights were much higher.

  • ECSTASY BECOMES BITTER AGONY

    OWENSBORO – There are not words to describe how quickly and completely fortunes changed for Anderson County’s softball team last Friday.

    East Jessamine rallied for three runs with two out in the bottom of the seventh inning to oust Anderson County, 10-9, from the Worth/KHSAA State Softball Tournament after a controversial call gave the Jaguars new life.

    OWENSBORO – The dateline for this story notes the city where the state high school softball tournament was being played last week, but it could just as well have been Lawrenceburg, Shelbyville, Taylorsville, Bedford or any other town where the Anderson County Lady Bearcats played this spring.

    By Lee McClellan, Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife

    The gorgeous weather combined with warming, but tolerable, temperatures make June one of the best months to be outside. The wonderful weather drives hordes of largemouth bass anglers to waters across Kentucky, filled with anticipation of catching a couple of five pounders.

    Often, at the end of a day of fishing in perfect weather, they only have a few 12-inch fish to show for their efforts. Despite the great conditions for humans, June is a transitional time for largemouth bass.

    Editor’s note: This compilation of notes from the state softball tournament contains the writer’s opinions and observations.

    **Anderson County’s third straight trip to the Worth/KHSAA State Softball Tournament might have ended a bit sooner than planned – the Lady Bearcats played only three games a year after playing six games and making it all the way to the Final Four last year – but it would be hard to label the relatively early exit a disappointment.
