  • Coming home has its perks

    It might be a stretch to say the only reason Makenzie Cann transferred to the University of Kentucky was to play in the NCAA Tournament, but it would only be a slight one.

    “It’s definitely a perk of being here,” Cann laughed Friday after Kentucky held off Belmont, 73-70, in the first round of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament.

  • Owensboro still on their minds

    The sting is still there for the Anderson County softball team.

    Even though time heals wounds and some key members of last year’s Lady Bearcats are now in college, the memories of what happened last June 10 are still vivid in their minds.

  • Bearcats open season with optimism

    If wins and losses are the only measure of success, then Anderson County baseball hit a valley it had not experienced in decades last season.

    But if getting better is the barometer for judging a season, the Bearcats at least passed a test. After opening the year with 13 consecutive losses, Anderson won five of its final 12 games.

    The 5-20 record was the lowest win total in the tenure of Coach L.W. Barnes, who took over the Anderson program in 1999.

  • Upchurch to be inducted into hoops Hall of Fame

    LEXINGTON – Those who knew Jack Upchurch when he coached high school basketball at Anderson County knew he was quite a basketball player.

    But did they know he was THAT good?

    Upchurch, who coached at Anderson from 1965-71, led the Bearcats to a state runner-up finish in his final game in Lawrenceburg. He left Anderson to return to his native Wayne County to take over the Cardinal program.

  • Cummins part of national championship team

    When Austin Cummins came back to Kentucky to complete his college basketball career, he knew he had a chance to be part of something special. Just how special was the only question.

    He found out last week when his Union College Bulldogs defeated Cornerstone University of Michigan, 72-69, for the NAIA Division II championship in Point Lookout, Missouri. The title was the first in Union history.

  • Aldridge off to sizzling start at Campbellsville

    College life is treating Anderson County High School softball product Mia Aldridge very well.

    Now at Campbellsville University, Aldridge has become one of the top hitters in the Tigers’ lineup. Through the team’s first 22 games, Aldridge has started all and has posted a .358 batting average. Aldridge has hits, including three home runs, third best on the team. Aldridge has driven in 14 runners and her .432 on-base percentage is fourth on the team, as is her RBI total.

  • Eighth Region figures to be Anderson vs. Oldham again

    For the last five years, Anderson County and Oldham County have ruled the Eighth Region softball race. The teams have met five times in regional tournament play, four of those games coming in the semifinal round, with the winner going on to be crowned regional champion each time.

    Oldham won in the 2012 and 2013 semifinal rounds. Anderson took a 12-inning thriller in the 2014 championship game then won semifinal games in 2015 (5-0) and last year (1-0).

    By Kevin Kelly, Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    Spring break for many conjures thoughts of traveling somewhere warm and catnapping on a beach between rounds of golf.

    A staycation sounds much better if you’re a muskellunge angler from Kentucky. The state’s muskellunge fishery has earned a reputation that extends beyond its borders, and experienced anglers know spring is one of the can’t-miss times of the year.

  • Spring white bass spawning runs just around the corner

    By Lee McClellan, Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    February days in the 60s make for crowded boat ramps and golf courses during a time of year usually spent indoors.

    Everything, nature wise, seems a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. Buds show on lilac bushes, green grass already grows in bunches and the sound of lawn mowers permeates an afternoon backyard barbecue.

    The rare winter temperatures may alter white bass spawning runs as well.
