  • Spencer’s late eruption buries...

    Spencer County broke open a close game, erupting for four runs in the top of the sixth inning, to defeat homestanding Anderson County, 6-1, in 30th District baseball play Monday night.

    Spencer first baseman Avery Vannatta ripped a leadoff home run off Anderson starter Mason Baker to put the Bears up 3-1. Before the inning was over, Spencer had all but sewed up at least a three-seed in the district tournament, which will be played on the Bears’ home field.

  • Dunbar awakens against Cats

    Dunbar jumped on Anderson County early and rolled to a 13-3 win over the Bearcats Friday at Barnes Memorial Field.

    The Bulldogs reached Anderson starter Tyler Peters for 8 hits and 6 earned runs in four innings.

    Dunbar, which had been ranked as high as No. 7 in the state earlier in the season, got its second consecutive win after suffering a seven-game losing streak.

  • Future bassmaster?
  • Anderson boys tennis vs. Shelby...
  • Shelby capitalizes on Anderson...

    SHELBYVILLE – One of the basics of baseball is three outs in an inning. No more, no less.

    Anderson County was reminded, again, of that simple rule last Tuesday night at Shelby County.

    Shelby took advantage of Anderson miscues to defeat the Bearcats, 2-1, and sweep the regular-season series.

  • Beasley’s first HR comes at good...

    It would be stretching things a bit to say Jenni Beasley knew her line drive was going out of the park last Thursday.

    “It felt good coming off the bat, but I had never hit a home run before,” the Anderson County High School freshman said with a huge smile.

    It wasn’t just Beasley’s first varsity home run, but first one, period. Any level.

  • Bearcats defeat Henry for first...
  • Bearcats making progress in...
  • Lady Cats earn regional tennis...

    The Anderson County girls’ tennis team might be growing up if last week’s matches are any indication.

    The Lady Bearcats, with one senior and a freshman and an eighth-grader being the only players with varsity experience before this season, won two of three matches, defeating Shelby County and Spencer County on the home courts.

  • WRECKING THE RECORD BOOK!

    Saturday afternoon might have been the first time I have ever seen Bailey Curry smiling after her team lost.

    But on a weekend when four of Kentucky’s top six high school softball teams got together for games at the highest level, it was Curry who cracked the highest standard.

    Curry wasn’t happy her sixth-ranked Anderson County team had just dropped one to top-rated McCracken County, but long after that 7-1 final score is forgotten, Bailey Curry’s name will be in the state record book.
