  • 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.

  • Bearcats open journey toward...

    Anderson County began a football journey which it hopes will take the Bearcats one step further in 2014 when the team opened spring practice on Monday.

    Anderson won its second regional championship in three years last fall but fell one game short of the state championship game. The Bearcats will again be one of the teams warranting long looks as a state finalist in 2014.

    It is now early April. If you asked most Kentuckians what it feels like weather wise, they would say it is the first of March.

  • Woodford Tourney not kind to...

    Spring break was not a time on the beach for the Anderson County softball team. The Lady Bearcats dropped two of three games in the Woodford County Invitational Tournament, after being able to enter that event at the last minute.

    Anderson had originally been scheduled to play in the Southern Invitational in Louisville but that tourney was canceled.

  • Vegetable gardens could offset...

    There’s just something wrong about driving through snow while on spring break. On the bright side, I did get to spend some quality time up north in Indiana. Seeing everyone’s smiling faces always makes the trip worthwhile. I even got to bring home some of Ma’s brownies.

  • Passed ball allows Bearcats to...

    The final tally of last week's high school baseball action was Weather 3, Anderson County 1.

    The Bearcats saw games at Boyle County, Oldham County and South Oldham all canceled because of rain, cold weather or a combination of the two.

    However, the one time the Bearcats took the field, they scored an 8-7 win on the home field over Henry County in eight innings to even their record at 2-2 on the year.

  • COLUMN: Team Tweak

    If you say you foresaw what we have witnessed unfolding on the basketball court the last two weeks, you probably should give serious consideration to a career change into the world of fortune telling.

    Or you are lying.

    Come on now, did you REALLY see Kentucky in the Final Four after the 72-67 debacle at South Carolina back on March 1.

    Actually, I did not see that one as I was celebrating my wife's birthday dinner that night and had cranked up the DVR. I still haven't watched it.

  • SPORTS BRIEFS: Russell named...

    Russell named national Player of the Week

    From staff reports

    Campbellsville University player and Anderson County resident Jacob Russell has been tabbed as the National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association athlete of the week, according to a news release from the school.

    The NCCAA Player of the Week honor is Russell's first of the season and of his Campbellsville career.

    Adam Turner, who has helped Anderson County reached the Class 5-A Final Four two of the past three years, says he is committed to turning around a Webster County football program that has had three straight one-win seasons.

  • Softball roundup: Lady Cats roll...

    The chip on Anderson County's shoulder grew to an enormous size on the softball diamond last week.

    The Lady Bearcats, picked as the Eighth Region favorite by the region's coaches, rebounded from their first loss of the season in a resounding fashion. Anderson recorded three wins by a combined score of 30-1 and improving to 4-1 on the season.

    Anderson's hitters pounded the ball while the pitchers kept opponents off the bases.
