  • Lady Rams in action

    Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg's softball team played Lakeside last Thursday.

  • TRACK: Bearcats can't get...


    Suffice it to say the Heart of the Bluegrass track meet was not a heart-warming experience for Anderson County on Saturday.

  • Young Lady Bearcats drop two...

    Anderson County softball might be trying to set a record for the youngest lineup ever in varsity softball.


    No official records are really kept but one would be hard pressed to find a high school varsity team starting a pair of eighth-graders and a sixth-grader. There are no seniors and only a pair of juniors on the roster.


    But somehow, Anderson is holding together against the perennially tough schedule Lady Bearcat coach Brian Glass puts together. Despite being only 7-8, Anderson is receiving votes for the state’s Top 25.

  • Wells to play for Hanover College

    Anderson County High School senior Neal Wells has accepted an offer to play football at Hanover College, located at Hanover, Ind.


    Wells made the decision official last Thursday.


    “I like the location and small classes,” said Wells, who expects to compete for playing time as a wide receiver and punter.


    “They have a tremendous football tradition,” Anderson coach Mark Peach said.


    Hanover, an NCAA Division III school, finished 7-3 last fall.

  • ACMS BASEBALL: Ugly win caps week

    The Anderson County Middle School baseball team capped a rain-shortened week with two victories.  In a series best described as “the good, the bad, the ugly,” the Mustangs managed wins over Springfield’s St. Dominic’s Knights and Bloomfield’s Braves to raise their season record to 13 – 1.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcats erupt for...

    This one was far from a classic.

    About the only things that resembled the 11-inning thriller Anderson County and Shelby County put together in the Eighth Region championship game last June were the names on the front of the jerseys.

    Classic? Far from it.

    But Anderson, at least, was not complaining after taking a 10-3 win and virtually guarantee itself a bye in the first round of the 30th District Tournament in late May.

  • COLUMN: Drury looking to make...

    Glen Drury knows he will have some ammo, maybe more than any Kentucky All-Star coach in recent years.


    Seniors from around the state will gather in Louisville Friday and Saturday, trying out for the honor of wearing a Kentucky All-Star jersey for the annual summer basketball series against Indiana.

  • SOFTBALL: Girls use spring break...

    A lot of work and a little play added up to Anderson County’s best day of the softball season on Saturday.


    Unlike recent years, the Lady Bearcats did not spend their spring break on the beaches at Gulf Shores, Ala. Instead they stayed home flipping tires and pushing sleds in an all-out conditioning effort. The prize on Saturday, however, was wins over Eastern and Daviess County in a three-way double-header at Eastern.


    Like Anderson, both Eastern and Daviess County are receiving votes to be placed in Kentucky’s Top 25.
