  • Young Lady Bearcats give coach reasons to smile

    Anderson County softball coach Brian Glass is smiling mighty big these days.

    It is true that the Lady Bearcats seemed to catch fire at the end of the 2012 season, winning their third 30th District title in five years and advanced to the Eighth Region semifinals four the fourth time in six seasons.

    The Lady Bearcats only finished 18-16, but Glass focuses on last May. “Toward the end of the season, there is no doubt we got a lot better,” he says. “We started trusting one another as a team.”

  • Pitching key question for Bearcats

    L.W. Barnes looks over the spreadsheet on the computer in front of him and chuckles. “We hit .230 as a team and won 19 games,” Barnes said. “Tell me how a team hits .230 and wins 19 games?”

    Of course, that answer lies in keeping the other team from crossing home plate, too. Anderson averaged 4.9 runs per game and gave up 4.6 as the Bearcats went 19-18 against a tough schedule but then won their fourth 30th District championship in five years.

  • Boys' Tennis: Net Cats appear solid

     With four returning players from last year, things should be looking bright for the Anderson County boys’ tennis team in 2013.

    However, it is really difficult to know at this point. Early season weather woes have hit the Bearcats harder than a 115-mph serve.

    “It has been a hard start to the season because of the weather,” Anderson coach T.J. Spivey said last week. “We have only been able to practice outside on the courts three times before our matches start.”
