  • Bearcats till swinging for the...

    When a high school sports program has built a reputation like Anderson County baseball, there is always a high expectation.

    As they open the 2018 season, things are no different for the Bearcats. as they are coming off a regional runner-up finish -- the tying run was on base when the final out was recorded in the championship game against Simon Kenton -- and are expected to be a force in the Eighth Region and a contender for their third 30th District title in four years.

  • Madness can’t describe what...

    You probably won’t believe this but I had another column written to run in this space.


    I looked at the calendar, decided that I wanted to watch more of the NCAA Tournament, so I wrote a nice little opinion piece last Wednesday and counted myself ahead of the game.

    That plan was busted.

    How appropriate, given the weekend.

  • Optimistic Lady Bearcats look to...

    There is guarded optimism around the courts for the Anderson County girls’ tennis team as the 2018 season gets underway.

    Numbers are strong as 11 girls are out for the team and Coach Holly Wampler says others might join the team. The Lady Bearcats have some experience and expect to be competitive in most matches.

    In the season opener last Thursday, the Lady Bearcats defeated Collins, 3-2, even though the top two singles players went down to defeat.

  • Bearcat netters look to reach...

    With five starters back from last year’s lineup, Anderson County boys’ tennis is in a position that the Bearcats could be improved over last season.

    It’s all in untapped potential, however. Anderson has the ability to be “really good” according to Coach Seann Speray. But in last week’s season opener at home against Collins, the Bearcats won just one of five varsity matches.

  • Largemouth bass removal planned...

    Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    Crews from the fisheries division of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will remove largemouth bass from Beaver Lake in Anderson County in the coming weeks to alleviate overcrowding and improve growth rates of fish.

  • Anderson All-Stars
  • A season of superlatives

    I don’t know about you, but I wasn’t ready for the high school basketball season to end.

    Back in November, things looked somewhat bright for both Anderson County High School teams. The optimists thought there was a chance the Lady Bearcats and Bearcats could both be playing in their respective Sweet 16s. The pessimists thought there was a good chance both Anderson teams would be one-and-done when the postseason came around.
