  • Peach excited as spring drills...

    Through a seven-minute interview following football spring practice, Anderson County head coach left little doubt about how he looks at the 2015 campaign.

    “We are excited!” he said.

    It’s not just a run-of-the-mill excitement, either. It’s the kind that prompted Peach to use that phrase, or one very similar, at least six times during the conversation.

  • Bearcats top No. 7 E-town in...

    Anderson County turned in what might have been the Bearcats’ best stretch of baseball in the 2015 season by winning two of three games in the Elizabethtown Wooden Bat Classic, held Friday and Saturday.

    The Bearcats defeated perennially strong Danville and Elizabethtown before falling to Louisville Male for the second time in five days. Anderson now stands at 6-7 on the year with a major district battle at Spencer County looming Thursday night.

  • Collins turns Lady Bearcat...

    SHELBYVILLE – After the stunning reality that an 11-game winning streak had come to an end, Anderson County softball coach Brent Aldridge tried to look at the big picture after the Lady Bearcats’ 2-1 loss at Collins last Wednesday.

    “I think this might be a good thing,” Aldridge said, obviously alluding to a possible wake-up call for the Lady Bearcats, who had climbed to a No. 6 ranking in the statewide coaches’ poll. “We are good, but if we don’t play a certain way, we are kind of average.”

  • Oldham turns tables on Cats in...

    FRANKFORT -- Eight hours was enough for Anderson County to see how things can change in the Capital City Showcase softball tournament, hosted by Franklin County, Saturday.

    About eight hours after recording a 13-0 win over Oldham County in tournament pool play, the Lady Bearcats were unable to solve Oldham pitching as the Colonels prevailed, 2-1, in the tournament semifinals.

  • Bearcats to finally open...

    Anderson County will undoubtedly play its most important game of the year, to this point at least, when the Bearcats travel to Spencer County for a 30th District game Thursday night at 5:30.

    Anderson was supposed to have gotten district play last week when the Bearcats were to have hosted Shelby County but the heavy rain in the days leading up to the game left Barnes Memorial Field unplayable.

    “The outfield is a swamp,” Anderson athletic director Rick Sallee said.

    From staff reports

    Anderson County High School basketball player Austin Cummins was named as an honorable mention selection on the prestigious Courier-Journal All-State team. The announcements were released online Friday, then published in Sunday’s edition of the state’s largest newspaper.
