  • COLUMN: Drury looking to make All-Star series about Bluegrass pride

    Glen Drury knows he will have some ammo, maybe more than any Kentucky All-Star coach in recent years.

  • SOFTBALL: Girls use spring break for work, play, wins

    A lot of work and a little play added up to Anderson County’s best day of the softball season on Saturday.


    Unlike recent years, the Lady Bearcats did not spend their spring break on the beaches at Gulf Shores, Ala. Instead they stayed home flipping tires and pushing sleds in an all-out conditioning effort. The prize on Saturday, however, was wins over Eastern and Daviess County in a three-way double-header at Eastern.


    Like Anderson, both Eastern and Daviess County are receiving votes to be placed in Kentucky’s Top 25.

  • Lake, Flora to tee off for Georgetown

    Anderson County High School golfers Marcus Lake and Jacob Flora have decided to take their talents to Georgetown College. The pair signed with the Tigers in late February.


    Flora and Lake have both done extremely well in the summer tours and helped the Bearcats to one of the program’s best finishes ever last fall.


    “Georgetown is a great academic school and they are giving me the best chance to succeed in the classroom and on the golf course,” said Lake, who never seriously considered another school.
