  • Bearcats open journey toward...

    Anderson County began a football journey which it hopes will take the Bearcats one step further in 2014 when the team opened spring practice on Monday.

    Anderson won its second regional championship in three years last fall but fell one game short of the state championship game. The Bearcats will again be one of the teams warranting long looks as a state finalist in 2014.

  • Strong pitching, balanced...

    Cold temperatures could not stop the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg baseball team from scoring a victory in the season-opener.

    The Rams overcame temperatures in the 30s to rout visiting Grace Baptist, 17-7, to raise the curtain on the season on March 25. After a see-saw start, Christian Academy took the lead for good in the bottom of the third. Michael Cooper delivered a bases-loaded double to score three runs to highlight the uprising and push the Rams' lead to 9-3.

    It is now early April. If you asked most Kentuckians what it feels like weather wise, they would say it is the first of March.

  • Woodford Tourney not kind to...

    Spring break was not a time on the beach for the Anderson County softball team. The Lady Bearcats dropped two of three games in the Woodford County Invitational Tournament, after being able to enter that event at the last minute.

    Anderson had originally been scheduled to play in the Southern Invitational in Louisville but that tourney was canceled.

  • Experienced Brown is newcomer to...

    If the Anderson County track program has become a relay, it might be that new coach Keith Brown is expecting to run a strong anchor leg.

    Brown takes over as the school's fourth head coach in the last six years, but unlike his predecessors, he brings a wealth of experience to the Anderson program.

    “I started coaching at Harrodsburg High School in 1990,” Brown says. “I was (Hall of Fame coach) Alvis Johnson's assistant coach there until 1997, when I took over as head coach.”

  • Lady Net Cats look to become...

    Anderson County tennis will be looking at different goals during the season that began two weeks ago.

    Anderson girls' coach Jeremy Cook says of his team, “We have five girls returning that played in last season's regional tournament, so we have experience where it counts. In a region that always has great tennis players, we will be a team that no one will want to draw in the regional tournament.”

  • COLUMN: Team Tweak

    If you say you foresaw what we have witnessed unfolding on the basketball court the last two weeks, you probably should give serious consideration to a career change into the world of fortune telling.

    Or you are lying.

    Come on now, did you REALLY see Kentucky in the Final Four after the 72-67 debacle at South Carolina back on March 1.

    Actually, I did not see that one as I was celebrating my wife's birthday dinner that night and had cranked up the DVR. I still haven't watched it.

  • Passed ball allows Bearcats to...

    The final tally of last week's high school baseball action was Weather 3, Anderson County 1.

    The Bearcats saw games at Boyle County, Oldham County and South Oldham all canceled because of rain, cold weather or a combination of the two.

    However, the one time the Bearcats took the field, they scored an 8-7 win on the home field over Henry County in eight innings to even their record at 2-2 on the year.

  • Anderson assistant Turner named...

    Adam Turner, who has helped Anderson County reached the Class 5-A Final Four two of the past three years, says he is committed to turning around a Webster County football program that has had three straight one-win seasons.

  • Softball roundup: Lady Cats roll...

    The chip on Anderson County's shoulder grew to an enormous size on the softball diamond last week.

    The Lady Bearcats, picked as the Eighth Region favorite by the region's coaches, rebounded from their first loss of the season in a resounding fashion. Anderson recorded three wins by a combined score of 30-1 and improving to 4-1 on the season.

    Anderson's hitters pounded the ball while the pitchers kept opponents off the bases.
