  • Tradition drives Lady Bearcats...

    There are traditions like turkey and dressing on Thanksgiving. A ball dropping in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. The Grand Ole Opry playing on Saturday night in Nashville.

    Then there are TRADITIONS.

  • Bearcats, Lady Cats Love Playing...

    It’s just home. Anderson County, that is.

    It’s not perfect in any way. It’s got a lot of great qualities. It’s got its flaws. Got its drama.

    And in the sports world, it certainly has had its share of great times. And Anderson County has had the down times too.

    But it’s home to the Anderson County Bearcats and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

  • Owen County gunning for first...

    Owen County is the small school with big dreams in 2016.

    And those big dreams are fueled by a huge front line, led by one of Kentucky’s top players.

    After more than a decade as one of the Eighth Region’s most consistent programs, Owen is a solid pick to earn the school’s first state tournament berth.

  • Simon Kenton expected to...

    It might have been a surprise when Simon Kenton and Anderson County played for the Eighth Region championship last season, but it should not have been.

    Both teams were expected to be rebuilding, but for the third straight year, the schools were the last two standing in the region. Just like it has been six of the last eight seasons.

    There could be another clash in early March.

  • Experienced Rams looking for...

    Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg has one goal for the 2015-16 season: Take the Title.

    At least that is the goal in terms of the team record. There are other off-the-court goals ahead of that one but with four starters returning along with some other talented players moving up from the junior varsity, the Rams opened the season recently as the top-ranked team in the Kentucky Christian School Athletic Association.

  • Rams are rolling at Christian...

    An evening combining basketball, country music and fun is in store for the 23rd edition of Cat Madness at Anderson County High School Saturday.

    The annual event, which tips off the high school basketball season locally, will showcase the Anderson County Bearcat and Lady Bearcat basketball teams, both of which are expected to contend for 30th District titles and are considered legitimate threats to take the Eighth Region championship.

  • Mustang grapplers reach summit...

    The Anderson County Middle School wrestling team had five wrestlers go unbeaten in the Summit View Tournament, held in Independence.

    Brax Briscoe (98 pounds), Zane Drury (113), Everett Marret (168), Jaiden Cunningham (168) and Nolan Hedges (190) all finished at 4-0 in their respective pools.

    The event was an individual tournament with no team awards given.

    Three other Anderson wrestlers finished at 3-1. Those wrestlers included Alex Strayer (80 pounds), Evan Peters (92), Chase Fink (130) and Logan Ritchie all finished with just one loss.
