  • Lady Bearcats defeat Lafayette in Capital City Classic

    From staff reports

    Anderson County scored three times in the top of the seventh inning to defeat Lafayette, 6-3, in the first round of the Capital City Classic, held at Lakeview Park in Frankfort Friday night.

    The tournament was hosted by Franklin County, but was canceled after the Friday night games due to the rains that moved through the area on Saturday.

  • Lady Cats keeping their grip on district, for now

    SHELBYVILLE -- The talk of Anderson County’s demise has been quite premature.

    At least the Lady Bearcats addressed it that way in 30th District softball action last week.

  • Lady Bearcat basketball looks to contend again in 2017-2018

    Expectations and perspective are best seen in high school sports in the way those involved describe a program

    Take the Anderson County girls’ basketball program, for example.

    Lady Bearcat coach Clay Birdwhistell talks of having to rebuild his program. He has done so for three seasons.

    Most other observers call the natural replenishing process at Anderson a reloading. It’s been that way ever since the Lady Bearcats became one of the Eighth Region powers a decade ago.

    For 2017-18, both would be right.

  • Dowell leads Cats to district win

    All Luke Dowell must have needed was a little reminder of history Monday night.

    Struggling early and even walking in a Spencer County run in the top of the first, Dowell got a visit from Anderson County pitching coach Chris Copenhaver.

  • Archers have big day at state meet

    An analysis of how the Anderson County High School archery team performed at the Kentucky High School Athletic Association state tournament last Thursday depends on who is doing the analyzing.

    The Bearcats placed eighth in the state championship meet with 3,400 of a possible 3,600 points. Madison Central won the title with Lafayette placing second. Perennial power Trigg County finished third.

  • Netting some points
  • Bearcats conclude spring practice

    Spring practice in high school football can be deceptive, but Thursday’s Red-White game at Anderson County High School showed the Bearcats potentially have some weapons they did not have last fall.

    “What I liked was a lot of different players contributing,” Anderson coach Mark Peach said. “With the mix of our returning players with our new additions gives us better team speed and also helps with the depth.”

  • Not with best intentions

    By now, Bailey Curry is used to the treatment she gets around the Eighth Region.

    And she knows there’s nothing she can do about it other than break into her huge smile and punish the opponent the best she can.

    Such was the case last Wednesday at Collins High School. The Titans had to believe they were at least Anderson’s equal, maybe even a bit better than the Lady Bearcats in 2017. After all, Anderson has been playing just a bit above .500 against a rugged schedule while Collins had routed Oldham County two nights before.
