The sting of a trying season might last a while for Anderson County baseball bu the Bearcats showed over the final week of the season they still had some punch left.
The Bearcats upset defending state champion Woodford County Saturday at Chandler Field in Versailles. Senior Zach Mason got the win with perhaps the strongest pitching performance of his career. Mason threw five innings, giving up four hits and three walks while surrendering only one earne run.
Woodford was ranked eighth in the state in the final regular-season poll.
