  • Anderson track leaps into new...

     

    Anderson County is looking to make a giant leap during this year's high school track season.

    Literally.

    “We come in and jump,” Anderson coach Robert Meacham says with a grin. “We compete in the jumping events.”

    Indeed. The Bearcats jump long. They jump high. They triple jump and they pole vault. Anderson has at least one, sometimes two, who could be contending for a berth in the state meet or a regional championship next month.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats take two in...

    Anderson County baseball showed it is far too early to write the Bearcats off in 2013.

    A week after mustering one hit in two games, the Bearcats rolled past Louisville Eastern and Bowling Green to take two of three games in the Bowling Green/Warren County Invitational.

    Anderson did have trouble against Ballard Memorial, mustering just three hits in a 3-1 loss.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Bearcat softball...

    Anderson County softball continues to be impressive early in the season, despite losing its first game of the year during its annual spring break trek to the beaches of Gulf Shores, Ala.

    The Lady Bearcats split two games, defeating Baldwin County but losing to Spanish Fort, both from Alabama, where teams have been playing since late February.

    Against Baldwin County, Bailey Curry smacked three hits and Madison Brummett drove in three runs in a 9-2 win for the Lady Bearcats last Tuesday.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Bearcats explode...

    SHELBYVILLE – Good teams will make you pay for extra outs, according to the old diamond truth.

    A Shelby County error prolonged the top of the fourth inning and Anderson County showed why it feels it is becoming a good team Monday night.

    The Lady Bearcats had seven consecutive batters reach base – six of them scored – in the decisive inning on their way to a 7-0 win in a key 30th District matchup at the Shelby County athletic complex.

  • COLUMN: Let the debate begin

    Well now, about the only thing left for college basketball in this state is for someone suit up a team from Waddy U. just to split the difference between Kentucky and Louisville.

    Two years and two champions just down the road from each other.

    Maybe a team from Alton or Tyrone can join them?

    Really, though, what a run for the Commonwealth the last two years and it might just continue.

  • COLUMN: Louisville’s run part of...

    Notes written on a worthless NCAA tournament bracket...

    Before the tournament started, I wrote online that seven or eight teams could win the national championship and that no team was as dominant as Kentucky was last year.

    I was wrong.

    Of course, down to four. Theoretically, any one of the four could go home with the big trophy.

    But what I have seen over the last two weeks belies what I had seen and read through the regular season. Louisville might be just as dominant as the Wildcats were last year.

  • Dance team celebrates season

    The Anderson County High School dance team held its year end banquet on March 26 at Eagle Lake Convention Center.

  • ACIT participants

    Three local youth basketball teams participated in the Anderson County Invitational Tournament last weekend.

  • GIRLS' TENNIS: Serving high...

    Young, but owning potential.

    That is how Anderson County girls' tennis coach Jeremy Cook describes his team as the high school season gets into full swing.

    Weather played havoc with the early season schedule, but Anderson got in three matches last week and will return to the court with a full schedule when the school resumes after spring break next week.

  • SOFTBALL: Cats take Russell...

    Anderson County was hitting on all cylinders as the Lady Bearcats rolled to four wins in the Russell County Lady Laker Classic over the weekend in Russell Springs. Anna-Marie Hyatt, Molly Burkhead and Marissa Walker all had big tournaments at the plate while pitcher Mia Aldridge earned victories in three games.

    Anderson has opened the season at 5-0 before heading to the Gulf Shores, Ala. area for spring break.
