  • 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.

  • Lady Bearcat basketball looks to...

    Expectations and perspective are best seen in high school sports in the way those involved describe a program

    Take the Anderson County girls’ basketball program, for example.

    Lady Bearcat coach Clay Birdwhistell talks of having to rebuild his program. He has done so for three seasons.

    Most other observers call the natural replenishing process at Anderson a reloading. It’s been that way ever since the Lady Bearcats became one of the Eighth Region powers a decade ago.

    For 2017-18, both would be right.

  • 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
  • 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.”
