  • Lady Bearcats looking like...

    Anderson County softball is finally living up to its lofty pre-season expectations.

    Not that anything major was ever wrong with the Lady Bearcats, but after a week that saw them win seven of eight games by a combined 62-12 score, Anderson is showing signs it has designs not only on an Eighth Region championship but also making noise at the state tournament if the Lady Bearcats get there.

  • Anderson track team looks to...

    Anderson County track and field might have had its biggest day in years as the Bearcats and Lady Bearcats both posted wins at the Central Hardin Invitational Friday night.

    “The kids, as well as the coaches, were extremely proud of the finish for both teams,” said Anderson coach Keith Brown. “Thanks to a lot of things falling into place, we were able to come out on top. It was quite a scene to see all the parents who would not leave until we got those trophies.

  • Anderson lacrosse second in own...

    The Anderson County boys' lacrosse team placed second in the teams inaugural invitational tournament Saturday.

    Anderson defeated Collins, 10-9 in the first game of the tourney, but fell to Woodford County in the championship match.

    Collins recovered to beat E-town in the consolation game.

    Anderson got big tournaments from Dillon Harrod, who scored nine goals over the two games, and goalie Matt Moses, who recorded 31 saves in the two-game set.
     

  • Lack of reliable scoreboard an...

    You probably know some well-meaning souls who espouse something along the line of, “The score should not matter. Just go out and play.”

    Those folk should have suited up at the Anderson County High School baseball field in recent years. It seems like more often than not, no one could have known the score unless he was keeping it himself.

    It really has been that bad in recent years when it has seemed like the chances of a no-hitter being thrown have been better than those of the scoreboard working.

  • Christian Academy rolls to four...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg defeated Lexington’s Bluegrass Baptist, 11-4, last Thursday at Anderson-Dean Park in Harrodsburg. CAL shut the door early and scored seven runs in the first three innings, to put the game away early.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady...

    The Anderson County Middle School girls' soccer team took on the boys over the weekend, finishing fourth in the six-team Frankfort Invitational Tournament. The Lady Mustangs joined the tournament when the organizers needed a team at the last minute.

    “We played really well and were close to the championship game,” said Anderson coach Daniel Rogers.

  • 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.

  • Big prizes on youth hunt weekend

    Anderson County youth display turkey season prizes.

  • CAL Hoops Coach Does It “His” Way

    Humility can be defined as “unassuming, insignificant, meek, modest, not proud or haughty.”

    Christian Academy boys' basketball coach Cory Robinson certainly exemplifies the essence of each of those references in both his coaching style, his leadership ability and his interactions with others through his personal walk with the Jesus Christ.

  • COLUMN: Local Wildcat fans show...

    If anyone from around these parts had made a reservation to travel to the Final Four a month ago, most of us would have thought they were either crazy or just college basketball junkies.

    Or maybe Louisville fans.

    After all, back in early March, it looked like the Cardinals were the only team inside the Commonwealth's borders that would have even a slight chance of playing in Jerry Jones' mansion.
