  • Russell named all conference

    Anderson County resident Jacob Russell has been honored as part of the All Mid-South Conference baseball team as a second team selection by the conference coaches.

    In his first year at Campbellsville University after transferring from the University of Kentucky, Russell has been a major part of the Tiger attack all season.

    Through Saturday's games, Russell led Campbellsville with three home runs and 33 RBIs. He ended the regular season with a 12-game hitting streak, which he extended in the first round of the MSC Tournament against Shawnee State.

  • COLUMN: Today's kids teach...

    We probably shouldn't have been as shocked as we were over the words of Donald Sterling.

    If you don't know what the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers said, you simply haven't been paying attention. Ever since TMZ released a tape recording that contained incredibly racist remarks later confirmed to be Sterling's, the story has dominated everything from Good Morning, America to SportsCenter.

  • Bearcats second in CKC meet

    Anderson County track made one of its strongest showings ever in the Central Kentucky Conference track and field meet, held Friday at East Jessamine High School.

    The Anderson boys' team placed second with 108 points, trailing only Henry Clay's 170. The Bearcats took three first place finishes and had four seconds.

    The Lady Bearcats finished sixth (56 points) after winning two events and placing second in three others.

  • High school volleyball team to...

    The Anderson County High School volleyball team is hosting a team camp on Saturday, June 7 from 8 a.m. until noon. The camp will be held in the high school gym.

    Cost of the camp is $25 per person in advance, $30 at the door. Campers are asked to wear volleyball attire, athletic shoes and, if possible, knee pads.

    Campers are also asked to bring a water bottle and a snack.

  • Lady Bearcats defeat East...

    Anderson County erupted for three runs in the eighth inning to post a 5-2 win at East Jessamine last Tuesday night.

    East Jessamine, which, like Anderson, has intentions of playing in the state tournament next month, held the Lady Bearcat attack in check until the teams went to the international tie-breaker in the eighth inning.

  • Another award for McKee

    Eriel McKee might need another room to house all of her hardware.

    The Anderson County High School senior, who had already been named to every all-state team imaginable, picked up another award last Tuesday when she was named the Fox 56 Player of the Year.

    McKee was chosen over Lafayette's Dee Givens and Dunbar's Brooke Todd for the honor.

    The Player of the Year award was chosen by the station's sports staff.

  • Mercer gets revenge, upsets Lady...

    It only seemed like the Anderson County team meeting lasted nearly as long as the softball game the Lady Bearcats had just lost.

    Anderson saw a nine-game winning streak come to an end Friday night when Mercer County upset the home-standing Lady Bearcats, 3-1.

    It was the same Mercer County the Lady Bearcats had pummeled, 12-0 just 15 days before.

  • Collins blasts Bearcats in...

    If there was any doubt about the best baseball team the 30th District, Collins obliterated it last Thursday.

    The Titans blasted three home runs – two of them 3-run shots – and pounded 16 hits in a 14-3 romp past host Anderson County at Barnes Memorial Field last Thursday.

    Collins pitcher Zac Wiley, a Bellarmine University signee, overcame a bit of a rough start to limit Anderson to five hits. Wiley struck out 11 and issued one walk, that going to lead off hitter Josh Brown.

    High School Baseball

  • Bearcat basketball: Looking back...

    It has been eight weeks since that night Collins ended the Anderson County boys' basketball season in the 30th District tournament opener. The Bearcats fought and battled, but ultimately, Collins just had too many weapons for a depleted Anderson team to overcome.

    But high school sports are designed, in part, to teach life lessons. One of those lessons Anderson County should have learned in 2013-14 is that life, like basketball, does not always deliver a stacked hand, or even what one would think is a fair hand.
