  • No moral victories for Lady Cats

    One could look at Anderson County’s effort in a 67-58 loss to powerful Louisville Mercy last Thursday and get a good feeling about the Lady Bearcats and their potential.

    After all, the Lady Bearcats suited up only two players with significant experience and rely heavily on freshmen and eighth-graders. But there they were, a young group of lady Bearcats who had pulled within 52-49 when Jaclynn Ruble buried a three-pointer with 4:34 to play.

  • Long-awaited hoops season is...

    It’s here.

    That season Anderson County basketball fans have been pointing to for the better part of the last five years is finally upon us.

    When the current Bearcat seniors came together in middle school, maybe even before, those who watched them knew they had the potential to become only the fifth Anderson team in history to navigate the minefield called March Madness and make Kentucky’s Sweet 16.

    That trip really is that special.

    Every year, most teams have that same goal of playing its final game on the Rupp Arena floor.

    The outlook for the waterfowl hunting seasons looks as promising as any seasons in recent memory.

    Mark Peach could only smile when he recently sat down to discuss the Anderson County football season that ended in the second round of the state playoffs.

    Madison Southern, which will be taking on top-ranked Covington Catholic for the state championship Saturday night in Lexington, escaped with a 14-11 win over the Bearcats three weeks after ripping Anderson, 41-20.

    Peach was asked about his demeanor. He was even though his team’s season ended that night in Berea. He managed a faint chuckle.
