  • TRACK: Eight Bearcats qualify...

    LEXINGTON – Eight might be enough for some people, but not for Anderson County track.

    Last Thursday, at Lafayette High School, eight Bearcats qualified for seven events this week's Class AAA state meet meet, to be held Saturday at the University of Louisville. It is the highest number of Anderson entries in recent years, but Anderson coach Robert Meacham sees his team's showing as a preview of what could be some stellar track years on the horizon.

  • Net Cats shut out in rain-...

     To say the Region 8 tennis tournament experienced a wacky week is an understatement. Saying it did not go as Anderson County had hoped is not.

    The Bearcats and Lady Bearcats were shut out of state qualifiers in a week that might have been dominated by the weather more than anyone's serve or backhand. Monday's first round was delayed, delayed again, then eventually called after a few matches because of rains that threatened all week.

  • State champs!

    The Anderson County Middle School softball team captured the Kentucky state championship Saturday night with a 3-2 win over previously undefeated Scott County in the final game at Cardinal Run Park in Lexington.

    Scott had defeated Anderson, 10-2, in a pool play game earlier in the tournament. The first two games of the tournament were pool play, sending teams to a single elimination tournament format later in the tournament.

  • TRACK: Eight Anderson performers...

    (UPDATE: As of Sunday afternoon, all eight performers named below have been officially listed in the state meet by the KHSAA.)

    Eight Anderson County High School track performers have advanced to the state meet, to be held Saturday at the University of Louisville.

  • TENNIS: Anderson tennis has...

    Tuesday was a tough day for Anderson County tennis as all of the Bearcat hopes for state tournament berths went by the wayside.

  • Sports briefs for May 8, 2013

    Jay Smith was named the Most Valuable Player as the Anderson County High School boys' basketball team celebrated a 22-5 season at the annual team banquet on April 28.

    Smith, who will play basketball collegiately at Transylvania University, also received the awards for Most Defensive Rebounds, Most Steals, Most Assists, Free Throw Percentage, and the Leadership Award.

    Smith shared the Academic Award with manager Katie Rogers and shared the Keith Foster Most Committed Award with Kyle Sutherland.

  • SOCCER: Lady Mustangs honor...

    The Anderson County Middle School girls' soccer team recently honored the eight-grade members of the team before a 6-0 win over Lincoln County.

    During the game, eighth-graders Billie Clark and Lucero Ramos scored out of the offense and another, Brooke Snider, connected on a penalty kick. Seventh graders Taylor Harley, Kinsey Robers and Caitlyn Stumph also scored for Anderson. Goalie Hannah Drury recorded a shutout.

  • SOFTBALL: Rivalry gets ailing...

    There's nothing like a good old-fashioned rivalry to get a softball team out of a little bit of a funk.

    Granted, Anderson County did not blow 30th District foe Shelby County off the field last Thursday, getting just five hits in a 3-0 home field win.

    And to be sure, the Shelby County of 2013, while vastly improved since the first time the teams had met nearly a month before, is not the same Shelby that was locked in a perennial battle with Anderson for Eighth Region supremacy just a few years back.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats battle...

    NEW CASTLE – This one could have hurt. Badly.

    Clinging to a razor-thin margin that had looked like a sure blowout just two innings before and seeing the tying run ready to charge just 90 feet away and still two outs to go, somehow Anderson County held on.

    When Anderson left hander Brandon Eliadis got Henry County batter Dylan Adams on a called third strike to end the Bearcats' 8-7 win, there were simultaneous sighs of relief and shouts of jubilation.
