  • Tons of fun at Cat Madness Photos by Progressive Studio
  • Inconsistency, injuries plagued Bearcat season

    As he reflected on the 2015 football season, Mark Peach’s visible emotions last week were much like the season the Bearcats had just finished a few days before.

    There were some highs in his mind.

    “Gunnar Gillis. I was pleased with him! He had 17 touchdown passes as a sophomore,” Peach said.

    And there were the lows.

    “Gunnar had 13 interceptions. That is something we will have to work on,” Peach said.

    Or he could reflect on a rousing season opener and a terrific close to the campaign.


    An evening combining basketball, country music and fun is in store for the 23rd edition of Cat Madness at Anderson County High School Saturday.

    The annual event, which tips off the high school basketball season locally, will showcase the Anderson County Bearcat and Lady Bearcat basketball teams, both of which are expected to contend for 30th District titles and are considered legitimate threats to take the Eighth Region championship.

  • Experienced Rams looking for third KCSAA state title

    Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg has one goal for the 2015-16 season: Take the Title.

    At least that is the goal in terms of the team record. There are other off-the-court goals ahead of that one but with four starters returning along with some other talented players moving up from the junior varsity, the Rams opened the season recently as the top-ranked team in the Kentucky Christian School Athletic Association.

  • Rose named second team all-conference

    Anderson County resident Bill Rose, a kicker on the Kentucky State University football team, has been named to the All-Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference second team, according to a news release.

    A junior who transferred to Kentucky State from Murray State, Rose hit on 5-of-8 field goal attempts with a long kick of 37 yards.

    Rose also hit on 12-of-13 extra point attempts for the Thorobreds, who finished the season on Nov. 7.
