  • TENNIS: Ty vying to be Bearcats' first at state

    It's hard to believe that one of the area's best tennis players traces his love for the sports back to a football coach.

    “The first time I ever got on the court, I was in Mr. (Lucas) Shouse's gym class,” Ty Glover smiles. “He was like, 'Do you want to play some tennis?'

    “I just said, 'Yep!'”

    Early May in Kentucky is not only a good time to set out tomato plants in backyard gardens, but it's the start of the best fishing of the year for bluegill and redear sunfish.

    When water temperatures approach 70 degrees, these two native sunfish species move into the shallows of ponds, small lakes and large reservoirs in preparation for spawning.

  • SOFTBALL: Breaking out against the Bears

    Anderson County might have reached a new level of slump-busting Thursday night.

    The Lady Bearcats ended a string of four losses in five games with an 11-0 rout of visiting Spencer County, clinching the top seed in the 30th District Tournament.

    Where to start?

    Freshman Mia Aldridge dominated the Lady Bears from the pitching circle, throwing a 5-inning no-hitter in her first varsity start.

  • FOOTBALL: Pleasant surprises emerge in spring practice

    There is little doubt that expectations are very high for the Anderson County High School football team this fall. The Bearcats finished 8-3 in 2012 and will likely be one of the favorites to not only win District 6, but advance deep into the state playoffs. A second trip to the state Class 5A championship game in three years is not out of the question.

    Still, there are some holes to fill and improvements to be made following a 48-0 loss in the first round of last year's state playoffs.

  • TENNIS: All in the family

    There won't be many surprises around Amanda and Hannah Wampler this year.

    The Anderson County doubles tandem caught nearly everyone, including themselves, off guard with their run to the Eighth Region tennis tournament final in 2012, but even though they are noticeably better players in 2013, no one is guaranteeing a repeat or better when the tennis post-season gets underway next week.

    The girls will play their first two rounds at Western Hills High School on Monday, then move to Franklin County the rest of the week.

  • OUTDOORS: Sportsman's Club teaches youth during turkey hunt

    The Anderson County Sportsman’s Club held its annual Youth Turkey Hunt on April 6-7. The event was hosted by Ky. Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources officers David Goodlett, Jason Wells, Joshua Robinson, and Sgt. Phillip Crane.

    Thirty youth between the ages of 10-15 participated. Six successfully harvested a turkey.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: UK signee puts Bearcats in early hole at North Oldham

    University of Kentucky signee Connor Heady quickly ended Anderson County's bid for a no-hitter or shutout Saturday.

    Heady drilled Brandon Eliadis' first pitch over the left-field fence to give North Oldham a 1-0 lead as the Mustangs outlasted Anderson 4-3 in Goshen.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: Brown, Durr lead Bearcats past Butler

    Anderson County wants the world to know that Bearcat baseball is not quite done.

    It had been easy to write off an Anderson season that had been marked by inconsistency, no home field on which to practice and a losing streak that reached six games before heading to Louisville to take on a very good Butler team that had won three straight and five of its last six.

    They say baseball is a funny game. A result of Anderson County 5, Butler 2 showed just how unpredictable the game can be.

  • Rain alters Wednesday schedule

    The Anderson County High School baseball game at Washington County Wednesday has been canceled due to the rains.  The Anderson boys' tennis match at North Bullitt is also canceled due to weather.  The Anderson girls' tennis match at Gallatin County will go on as scheduled.
