  • 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.

  • Archers have big day at state...

    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.

  • Turner archers shoot nation’s...

    The Robert B. Turner Elementary School archery team is the best in the United States.

    At least it was Saturday.

    The Turner archers shot a team score of 3,216 of a possible 3,600 points in a meet held at Anderson County Middle School. The score was the best elementary school score in the nation for the 2016-17 school year, besting a 3,214 shot by Foley Elementary of Minnesota, according to Turner coach John Collins.

  • Lady Cats keeping their grip on...

    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.

  • Bearcat basketball camp dates set

    The Anderson County Bearcat Basketball Camp will be held from Monday, June 5 through Thursday, June 8, according to a news release.

    The camp is open to boys and girls entering kindergarten through the eighth grade. Sessions are from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. daily. Kindergarten through third grade sessions will be held at Robert B. Turner Elementary School, fourth and fifth grade sessions will be at Emma B. Ward Elementary School with grades six through eight reporting to Anderson County High School.

  • 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.”

  • 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.

  • Netting some points
  • Duncan qualifies for national...

    Anderson County High School graduate Connor Duncan, now running for Montreat College, placed second in the 400-meter hurdles at the Appalachian Athletic Conference track and field championships hosted by Montreat on Saturday.

    Duncan turned in a school record 54.53, less than a half-second behind the champion, Jordan Thompson of Allen University.

    Duncan’s effort qualified him for the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field Championships to be held next month. Duncan is ranked eighth nationally in the event.

  • Lady Bearcats defeat Lafayette...

    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.
