  • OUTDOORS: Youth is served in...

    The weather was fine for hunting in late December during the Anderson County Sportsman’s Club’s fourth youth deer hunt held Dec. 28-29, according to Fish and Wildlife Officer Jason Wells.

    Any young hunters, ages 10-15 years old, who were unsuccessful in harvesting a deer during the fall youth hunt in October were invited to take a deer in December, Wells said.

    Little League registrations underway

    Boys and girls ages 5-17 are invited to sign up for Anderson County Little League baseball. The league is open to all children with leagues ranging from coach-pitch to Senior League. The cost is $75 per child in the coach pitch leagues, $85 for Minor League and Major League and $95 for Senior League.

    The local league also offers a Challenger League for physically- and mentally-challenged youth. That league is offered at no cost to the participant.

  • GOLF: Harrod signs with...
  • BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats...

    Anderson County overcame the absence of Miss Basketball finalist Makenzie Cann to defeat visiting Bryan Station, 56-45, in girls' basketball action last Tuesday.

    Anderson outscored the Defenders in every quarter to post their 14th win in 17 games. “It was one of those games I felt confident all the way through,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said. “We were in the driver's seat the whole game and were able to pull away. It wasn't as early and might not have been (a margin) as much as we like, but it was a good win.”

  • BASKETBALL: Balanced Bearcat...

    Anderson County needed this one. And the Bearcats needed a win in the worst way.

    The broad smiles pasted across their faces showed the Bearcats had delivered Saturday night with a 66-47 win over Frankfort.

  • BASKETBALL: Sacred Heart rallies...

    LOUISVILLE – It might have been a case of forgotten identity Saturday.

    At least Anderson County, where most of the players have been together for six or seven years, seemed to forget what made the Lady Bearcats a Final Four team last year and the pre-season No. 1 team in Kentucky this year.

  • BASKETBALL: South Oldham...

    The pre-season predictions? Apparently, South Oldham did not bother to read them.

    The Dragons were supposed to be rebuilding. They were supposed to be pretty good. They were even considered one of as many as eight or nine teams with a chance of winning the Eighth Region. But dominant? Not when they were replacing four starters from last year's Eighth Region champion.

    Friday night, South Oldham showed why it has moved to the top of the region in the computer ranking system.

  • BASKETBALL: Spencer outlasts...

    TAYLORSVILLE – A strange season got stranger for Anderson County boys' basketball last Tuesday.

    “This has been a weird year,” Bearcat coach Glen Drury said moments after his team had absorbed an 80-74 loss at Spencer County. “I have never, in 33 years of coaching, had a kid get chicken pox.”

    But it happened last Tuesday when the Bearcats found out less than six hours before tipoff that all-region guard Christian Estes would not be available due to a bout with the disease. Junior Josh Brown started in Estes' slot.

  • COLUMN: Super Bowl a time to...

    I never thought I would see the day when the Super Bowl could have a major impact on recruiting at the University of Kentucky.

    But, again, I never thought I would see a team playing for the Lombardi Trophy with three former Wildcats playing significant roles.
