  • Bearcat, Lady Bearcat seasons...

    Thursday was a tough night for Anderson County on the diamond as both the Bearcat baseball team and Lady Bearcat softball teams saw their seasons come to an end in the Eighth Region tournament semifinals.

    At South Oldham High School, the Lady Bearcats led early but fell apart late in an 8-1 loss to regional favorite Oldham County. Anderson led 1-0 after four but Oldham tied things in the fifth, then scored seven times in the sixth to advance to the regional final against Walton-Verona. Anderson ends the season at 19-16.

  • Duncan sets new state record in...

    As he neared the finish line in the 300-meter hurdle race, Connor Duncan knew he would be getting a gold medal at the state middle school track meet last Saturday.

    He knew he had been fast, bursting out of the starting block and leading all the way. But it wasn't until a few seconds later that the magnitude of what the Anderson County Middle School eighth-grader had done began to sink in on the track at Dunbar High School in Lexington.

    “The coaches said, 'You got it in 41 (seconds). I thought I had the state record,” Duncan said.

  • Dream comes true for Anderson...

    When she started cheering while in kindergarten, Jackie Webb has had one dream: Be on the sidelines yelling “Go Big Blue!”

    Webb, who graduated from Anderson County High School on Tuesday night recently learned that her dream will be coming true next fall as a member of the White cheering squad at the University of Kentucky. She will be cheering at football games, women's basketball and volleyball contests.

    “My dream has always been to attend the University of Kentucky and cheer,” Webb says.

  • Student-athletes deserve better...

    Remember that little phrase we often hear, then snicker?

    Student-athlete.

    When you hear someone representing a major college or the NCAA using that term, you had better be sure to notice that emphasis on the “student” half of the equation and forget that those student-athletes play weeknight games at 9:30 and are flown across the country, regardless of location, all for a good matchup in March Madness.

  • Hamrick named All-American

    Anderson County resident Kristen Hamrick, shown in action for Campbellsville University's tennis team in April, has been named second team All-American by the National Christian College Athletic Association, according to a news release from the school. Hamrick played both singles and doubles for the Lady Tigers, who won the NCCAA national championship on May 11 and finished the season ranked No. 17 in the NAIA.

    Late May is a prime time to catch catfish from Kentucky's reservoirs, small lakes, rivers and farm ponds.

    "The water is warming into the 70s and catfish are about to spawn," said Gerry Buynak, assistant director of the Fisheries Division for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "Beginning in late spring and throughout the summer, catfish settle into daily patterns and feed aggressively."

  • Hunting, fishing with family...

    I’ve never been a big television watcher. 

    I do enjoy sitting with my lovely wife Leigh when we have time and watching certain shows and have always enjoyed watching most sports on the tube including a good NASCAR race. I typically don’t watch much of anything live anymore since I can do all the recording, pausing and rewinding live TV with my satellite setup. I can also skip the annoying commercials. 

  • Watts pounds zone in '...

    SHELBYVILLE – The instructions to Steven Watts were simple: Just throw strikes.

    The senior right-hander pounded like a prize fighter last Tuesday as Anderson County knocked Spencer County out of the 30th District baseball tournament at Collins High School.

    Watts struck out 14 Spencer County batters and allowed just one hit as the Bearcats rolled to a 4-0 semi-final win. It was the fifth time in six years that Anderson had eliminated the Bears in district play.

  • BASEBALL: Hayes leads Bearcats...

    SHELBYVILLE – Granville Hayes just wanted to put the bat on the ball.

    Hayes stroked a one-out, bases-loaded single to score Tanner Roberts, giving Anderson County a 2-1 walk-off win over Owen County Monday night in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament being held at Collins High School.

    Hayes, who had struck out with the bases loaded in the third inning, drove Stone Osborne's 0-2 pitch to the right side of the infield. Owen could not make a play, setting off a wild celebration among the Anderson players.
