    The local league also offers a Challenger League for physically- and mentally-challenged youth. That league is offered at no cost to the participant.

  • GOLF: Harrod signs with...
  • BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats...

    Anderson County overcame the absence of Miss Basketball finalist Makenzie Cann to defeat visiting Bryan Station, 56-45, in girls' basketball action last Tuesday.

    Anderson outscored the Defenders in every quarter to post their 14th win in 17 games. “It was one of those games I felt confident all the way through,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said. “We were in the driver's seat the whole game and were able to pull away. It wasn't as early and might not have been (a margin) as much as we like, but it was a good win.”

  • BASKETBALL: Balanced Bearcat...

    Anderson County needed this one. And the Bearcats needed a win in the worst way.

    The broad smiles pasted across their faces showed the Bearcats had delivered Saturday night with a 66-47 win over Frankfort.

  • BASKETBALL: Sacred Heart rallies...

    LOUISVILLE – It might have been a case of forgotten identity Saturday.

    At least Anderson County, where most of the players have been together for six or seven years, seemed to forget what made the Lady Bearcats a Final Four team last year and the pre-season No. 1 team in Kentucky this year.

  • BASKETBALL: South Oldham...

    The pre-season predictions? Apparently, South Oldham did not bother to read them.

    The Dragons were supposed to be rebuilding. They were supposed to be pretty good. They were even considered one of as many as eight or nine teams with a chance of winning the Eighth Region. But dominant? Not when they were replacing four starters from last year's Eighth Region champion.

    Friday night, South Oldham showed why it has moved to the top of the region in the computer ranking system.

  • BASKETBALL: Spencer outlasts...

    TAYLORSVILLE – A strange season got stranger for Anderson County boys' basketball last Tuesday.

    “This has been a weird year,” Bearcat coach Glen Drury said moments after his team had absorbed an 80-74 loss at Spencer County. “I have never, in 33 years of coaching, had a kid get chicken pox.”

    But it happened last Tuesday when the Bearcats found out less than six hours before tipoff that all-region guard Christian Estes would not be available due to a bout with the disease. Junior Josh Brown started in Estes' slot.

  • COLUMN: Super Bowl a time to...

    I never thought I would see the day when the Super Bowl could have a major impact on recruiting at the University of Kentucky.

    But, again, I never thought I would see a team playing for the Lombardi Trophy with three former Wildcats playing significant roles.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats taste...

    FRANKFORT – Anderson County was just happy to be back on the court Friday night at Western Hills.

    “The kids were ready to play and had a lot of enthusiasm and energy,” Bearcat basketball coach Glen Drury said of his team's 63-47 win over the Wolverines.

    Anderson eased ahead in the second quarter, then blew the game open in the second half to post its first win since Dec. 26, when the Bearcats defeated Estill County in the Powell County Tournament.

  • OUTDOORS: Trapping season a time...

    The New Year has sure started out on a cold, wintry note. The recent sub-zero temperatures are something we haven’t seen in Kentucky in years and something I don’t think we’ll ever get used to.

    I know as I get older, the cold weather just seems to reach deeper into the old gut and chill me to the bone with each passing day. Not to worry, God has a plan and spring will be here soon which of course brings with it great fishing and spring turkey season in the Bluegrass.
