  • BASEBALL: Harley, Case shine for...

    Anderson County baseball began to warm up last week in Florida.


    “The week showed us what we already knew,” Barnes said of the annual spring break trip to the Florida Beach Bash at Fort Walton Beach.


    “We have potential to be a pretty good team, but we must play nearly flawless to win,” Barnes continued.

  • Middle School wins tourney

    The Anderson County Middle School baseball team continued a very successful season with a tournament championship in the Bondurant Spring Break Invitational in Frankfort.  With wins over Winchester Conkwright, Bondurant and Elkhorn, both of Franklin County, the Mustangs ended the rain-shortened tournament as the only undefeated team.

  • Lake, Flora to tee off for...

    Anderson County High School golfers Marcus Lake and Jacob Flora have decided to take their talents to Georgetown College. The pair signed with the Tigers in late February.


    Flora and Lake have both done extremely well in the summer tours and helped the Bearcats to one of the program’s best finishes ever last fall.


    “Georgetown is a great academic school and they are giving me the best chance to succeed in the classroom and on the golf course,” said Lake, who never seriously considered another school.

  • Tourney dedicated to Bishop

    The 20th Annual Anderson County Invitational basketball tournament, held on March 24 and 25, was dedicated in honor of longtime Anderson County parks and recreation director Chip Bishop, who died last month. His widow, Robin Bishop, accepted the award. From left are tournament director Edwin McKee, Stacey Newton, Robin Bishop and Mark Newton.

  • State runnerup

    Andrew Mitchell, 12, finished second in the Knights of Columbus state free throw competition, held March 19 in Louisville. Mitchell hit 19 of 25 free throw attempts in the state competition. Earlier, Mitchell had won the local contest, held in Frankfort on Jan. 30. He went on to win the district competition on Feb. 27. He took the regional honors on March 13 in Georgetown, hitting 22 of 25 shots that day.

  • COLUMN: Four Final thoughts on...

    Well, now, wasn’t that fun?

    Obviously, it would have been more of a blast for most people in these parts if a different shade of blue had been playing Monday night, but Kentucky’s run to the Final Four was what sports are really supposed to be.

    For Kentucky fans, at least, watching a team morph from marginal to mighty was as much as anything since, oh, 1998 or so. And you can bet that it won’t take 13 more years.

    So with that, I will leave you with four final thoughts on the college basketball season.

  • TENNIS: Young Bearcats looking...

    Despite losing four of seven starters from last season, expectations are high around the Anderson County boys’ tennis team.


    “I expect we will have our ups and downs this year with young talent, but come regional tournament time, I believe we will be a team that most will not want to face in the early rounds,” says Anderson co-coach Jeremy Cook.

  • Mehs, Peyton, Frederick top...

    Anderson County High School student Justin Mehs recorded the highest score at the Kentucky National Archery in the Schools Program state tournament, held March 29 in Louisville.


    Mehs shot a 297 of a possible 300 to become the overall male winner in the tournament. He shot 27 arrows, out of 30 attempts, in the bull’s-eye. His other three shots were in the 9-point ring.

  • SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Lady Bearcats...

    While Anderson County got a leg up on the seeding race for the 30th District Tournament with wins over Collins and Shelby County, the rest of the Lady Bearcats’ week left much to be desired, according to Anderson coach Brian Glass.


    The Lady Bearcats dropped three of four games, including one to regional foe Henry County in the Oldham County Spring Break Classic on Saturday.
