  • Hoops season set to tip off

    There are many questions about the Anderson County boys' basketball team heading into the 2012-13 schedule, but Saturday night the Bearcats showed there is reason to believe some of the late February answers can be good ones.

  • CHRISTIAN ACADEMY: Rams rally...

    Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg captured a 61-55 overtime win over Bourbon Christian Friday night in Paris.

    The Rams' Forrest Bowman sank one of two free throws with five seconds to play in regulation to tie things, then the Rams dominated the overtime to take the win.

    Before the overtime, Christian Academy coach Cory Robinson told his team, “Come out on fire and don't let them gain momentum in the overtime.”

    The Rams stopped the tenacious Bourbon Christian team to take the win.

  • GOLF: Lady Bearcat golf looking...

    With the 2012 Anderson County High School girls' golf campaign in the books it was time to reflect on the season for Lady Bearcats' coach Todd Hyatt, according to a news release.

    “We had a lot of firsts this year: Katilyn Riley won our own tournament, The Joy of Golf, which was a first for Anderson County golfers,” Hyatt said in a press release.

  • Hyatt competes in golf tourney

    Anderson County High School senior Anna-Marie Hyatt was one of 40 female golfers from around the state selected to participate in the KGCA Senior All-Star Tournament, held at the University Club of Kentucky in Lexington on Oct. 20. Hyatt represented golf's Seventh Region as well.

    Despite battling strong winds and temperatures in the 40s, Hyatt finished in a seventh-place tie to cap her 5-year career at Anderson County High School.

  • COLUMN: Pennsylvania anthem...

    At first glance, the news out of Pennsylvania last week was more than a bit upsetting at first glance.

    In case you missed it, last Monday, the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League issued a directive to 183 member schools in the central and western portions of the state that they should no longer play the National Anthem before high school hockey games.

  • Rams open season

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg boys' basketball team got on the winning track Saturday when the Rams whipped the Georgetown Home School group 65-40 on the academy's home floor. The Christian Academy defense limited Georgetown to 12 second half points after struggling through the first half.

    “We handled them easily last season so it was a struggle to keep our players focused for this game,” Christian Academy coach Cory Robinson said.

  • BASKETBALL: Cat Madness 20 tips...

    Cat Madness has changed since Anderson County High School started the tradition, but one thing remains the same. It is still the event that signals high school basketball is upon us.

    Now in its 20th year, Cat Madness tips off Saturday night, Nov. 17 with the highly-ranked Anderson County girls' basketball team participating in a Red-White scrimmage at 6 p.m. The Bearcat boys' team will tangle with perennial power Covington Holmes in the second game, starting at approximately 7:30 p.m.

    Notes written while looking for turkey deals...

    You have to love the ambition of a lot of Kentucky football fans. Some think just because the Wildcats' head coaching job is open, anyone with a right mind would want to talk with Mitch Barnhart and company.

    Nice stadium. A couple of stud quarterbacks – Max Smith and Patrick Towles – already in the fold. A chance to coach in the SEC.  What more could someone ask for?

  • Anderson athletes get fall...

    Eleven different Anderson County High School athletes were recently honored as all-district or all-region selections in their different sports.

    Lady Bearcat volleyball players Ashley Couch and Bethany Hardin were named to the All-Eighth Region Tournament team by the region's coaches. Earlier, Shelbi Savoie, Liberty O'Neal and Hardin were selected to the All-30th District Tournament team. The Lady Bearcats advanced to the regional semifinals for the first time in four years.

  • FOOTBALL: Peach reflects on...

    Mark Peach knows plenty of high school football teams would gladly trade their 2012 seasons for the one Anderson County just enjoyed.

    The Bearcats finished 8-3. They were ranked among Class 5A's Top 10 most of the year. They won the games they were supposed to win and might have picked up a couple more.

    Yet, after advancing all the way to the state championship game in 2011, there was obviously little joy around the Bearcat camp when the season abruptly ended with a 48-0 loss to Cooper in the first round of the state playoffs on Nov. 2.
