  • Lady Cats falter in Frankfort...

    FRANKFORT – Anderson County can only hope softball history repeats itself.

    The Lady Bearcats appeared ready to run roughshod through the Capital City Showcase at Frankfort’s Lakeview Park over the weekend but instead suffered the sting of a 7-1 loss to 30th District rival Collins in Saturday’s semifinal game.

    It was the same Collins team the Lady Bearcats had pounded, 12-4, less than two weeks before.

  • Fish and Wildlife auctions...

    The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will conduct its spring auction of surplus and confiscated items on Monday, May 2, according to a news release.

    The auction will be held at the department headquarters near the Salato Center, located on U.S. 60 West in Frankfort, the release said.

    Surplus auction items include boats, motors, trucks and various equipment. Bidding on surplus items to open to everyone.

  • Beasley’s first HR comes at good...

    It would be stretching things a bit to say Jenni Beasley knew her line drive was going out of the park last Thursday.

    “It felt good coming off the bat, but I had never hit a home run before,” the Anderson County High School freshman said with a huge smile.

    It wasn’t just Beasley’s first varsity home run, but first one, period. Any level.

  • Bearcats defeat Henry for first...
  • Bearcats making progress in...
  • Lady Cats earn regional tennis...

    The Anderson County girls’ tennis team might be growing up if last week’s matches are any indication.

    The Lady Bearcats, with one senior and a freshman and an eighth-grader being the only players with varsity experience before this season, won two of three matches, defeating Shelby County and Spencer County on the home courts.


    Saturday afternoon might have been the first time I have ever seen Bailey Curry smiling after her team lost.

    But on a weekend when four of Kentucky’s top six high school softball teams got together for games at the highest level, it was Curry who cracked the highest standard.

    Curry wasn’t happy her sixth-ranked Anderson County team had just dropped one to top-rated McCracken County, but long after that 7-1 final score is forgotten, Bailey Curry’s name will be in the state record book.

  • Shelby squeezes district win...

    Shelby County’s Bobby Crisp and Spencer Shouse perfectly executed a suicide squeeze in the top of the seventh inning to spark the Rockets to a 7-2 at Anderson County Monday night.

    With one out, Crisp placed his bunt perfectly in front of Anderson pitcher Connor Wells. Shouse, who had been breaking from third base on the pitch, easily beat Wells’ throw to the plate to break a 2-2 tie. Shouse had reached base when he was hit by a pitch.

  • Currens plays in East-West game

    Anderson County High School senior Kaci Currens scored 8 points for the West team in the annual East-West All-Star Game, held Saturday at Transylvania University. The game is sponsored by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches.

    Currens’ West Team lost 101-99 when Campbell County’s Kylie Kramer hit a shot with four seconds to play.

    Currens, who has signed with Georgetown College, was selected as the KABC Eighth Region Player of the Year and therefore invited to participate in the game, which pits the stars from regions 1-8 versus regions 9-16.

  • Bearcats looking at new roles...

    With some changes coming to Anderson County football, spring practice might take on added significance in 2016.

    Approximately 30 boys went through the first week of drills last week as the Bearcats not playing spring sports went through a myriad of drills for the 2016 season.

    “We have had a great first week,” Anderson coach Mark Peach said Thursday. “We wanted to look at some new things offensively and look at some folds at multiple positions and have been able to do so.”
