    The Anderson County freshman put charges in a pair of home runs that might have threatened traffic on the mighty Ohio, about three blocks from the field at Gallatin County High School, but certainly propelled the Lady Bearcats to an 8-0 romp past Walton-Verona in the tournament semifinals Wednesday of last week.

  • Lady Bearcats are are state tourney bound

    WARSAW, Ky. – The only question was whether or not Kaci Currens' line shot would be high enough.

    The Anderson County High School sophomore had punished an offering from Oldham County's Kristen Smith. At the Lady Bearcats' home field, it would have been a no-doubter, but at Gallatin County High School, with roughly the same dimensions but a 10-foot-high fence, it was not clear.

  • Diamond or diploma?

    Imagine having to decide between two once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

    It is a choice facing Molly Burkhead and Madison Brummett Thursday night. They are the only seniors on the Anderson County High School softball team, which is scheduled to play its first round game at the state tournament at 6 p.m. in Owensboro.
