  • 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.

  • Bat Cats drop two at Madison...

    Anderson County dropped a pair of games in a three-team triangle event at Madison Central High School on Saturday. The Bearcats dropped a contest to the host school in the opener, then fell to Conner in the second game. Madison Central went on to defeat Conner to complete the day.

    Madison Central, now 13-2 on the year, got five runs in the first inning and that was all the Indians needed to defeat the Bearcats, 7-3, in the event’s opening game. It was also Madison Central’s first home game of the season.

  • Moore fires no-hitter against...

    If Ally Moore pitches like this when she is not feeling well, what will she do when she is full strength?

    Moore, an Anderson County junior, totally silenced the Louisville Holy Cross bats, firing a no-hitter as the Lady Bearcats prevailed, 2-1, in the final game of the Lafayette Invitational, held Saturday in Lexington.

    Moore held the Cougars, ranked No. 16 in the state in the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association poll, hitless while striking out seven and walking one.

  • Sims jumps over Creek field

    Anderson County High School sophomore Alorra Sims backed up her reputation as one of Kentucky’s best jumpers when she took first place in the long jump at the Tates Creek Commodore Classic Saturday in Lexington.

    Sims soared 16-feet-11-inches, tying a school record in the event. Sims, who finished third in the state in the event last year, is considered a serious contender for the state championship. Sims also placed sixth in the 100-meter hurdles and third in the 300-meter hurdles. It was the best showing of any Anderson harrier on Saturday.

  • Anderson archers take regional...

    The Anderson County High School archery team claimed the Region 5 championship Saturday, posting a 16-person score of 4,476.

    The Bearcats outlasted regional runnerup Simon Kenton in the regional shoot, held at Anderson.

    Both teams will advance to the state champioship shoot, to be held on Thursday, April 23.

    Senior Cameron Peyton won the individual title, defeating teammate Makayela Lewis in a shootoff. Both finished the day with a 291 score.
