  • Three local golfers on KSU...

    The Kentucky State University men's golf team took the championship of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament last Wednesday.

    The Thorobreds shot a three-day total of 991 at the Woodward Golf and Country Club in Bessemer, Ala.

    Three Anderson County High School graduates – Dylan Riley, Joseph White and Gabe McMichael – are members of the Kentucky State team.

  • Lady Bearcat softball rolls past...

    The Anderson County softball team continued its winning ways Thursday with a 6-1 win over Shelby County at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    The Lady Bearcats extended their winning streak to nine games and had won 12 of 13 heading into Tuesday's scheduled game at East Jessamine. Most importantly, Anderson improved to 5-0 in district play and could clinch the 30th District Tournament's top seed with a win at Collins on May 6, regardless of what else happens in the district.

  • Mason named to Leach All-...

    Anderson County High School senior James Mason was honored Thursday night as a member of the TomLeachKy.com All-Resilient Team of Kentucky student-athletes.

    The team, which was also sponsored by the Kentucky National Guard, the Kentucky High School Athletic Directors Association and Star Communications, was honored in a ceremony at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium in Louisville.

  • Great spring fishing available...

    Spring has finally arrived and with it comes turkey season and some of the best fishing of the year. The air has warmed now and the lake waters of Kentucky are well on their way to those 60 degree temperatures that fire up the largemouth bass and crappie spawns.

  • Moore's break for home...

    SHELBYVILLE – If it works, you are a genius. If not, well, let's just say the fan commentary would not be kind.

    Shelby County baseball coach Bart Roettger was a genius last Thursday. Well, sort of.

    Roettger's Rockets scored twice in the bottom of the seventh inning to defeat Anderson County in a 30th District game that most likely will be repeated in tournament play next month. It was how Shelby did it that made Roettger look like a riverboat gambler making a desperate move.

    Again, sort of.

  • Bearcats conclude spring...

    No score was kept, but Anderson County football coach Mark Peach believes the Bearcats were winners in the spring football game, held last Thursday at Warford Stadium.

    “I told the guys I can't remember being more tickled in 20 years of coaching just as far as spring and what we were able to accomplish,” Peach said.

  • Bearcats begin diamond...

    Anderson County varsity baseball took a major step forward over the weekend.

    The Bearcats won three of four contests in an impressive fashion and the only loss came when Louisville Eastern, ranked sixth in the state by Prep Baseball Report, took a 1-0 decision in the bottom of the seventh inning.

    Thursday, the Bearcats routed visiting Owen County, 10-0, in a 6-inning mercy-rule game at Barnes Memorial Field.

  • Bearcat road to state final...

    It is never an easy path to get to a state championship game, but Anderson County football might have it even tougher if a proposed realignment is adopted.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association released a new football alignment proposal during the Board of Control meeting last Tuesday. The alignment, if adopted, would be in effect for the 2015-2018 seasons.

  • Cann, McKee named to Kentucky...

    Anderson County High School girls' basketball players Eriel McKee and Makenzie Cann have been named to the Kentucky All-Star team that will play Indiana in a two-game series this summer.

    The Kentucky roster was announced last Thursday. Cann and McKee joined 10 other players from around the state on the team. They are the first girls from Anderson County to be named to the Kentucky All-Stars since the girls' game began in 1976.
