  • GIRLS' EIGHTH REGION...

    Is it the Big 2? The Big 3? Or is it the Big 4? Could it even be the Big 5?

    No, the question is not about the latest in college football realignments. The question has everything to do with just how top-heavy the race for the girls' Eighth Region championship will actually become.

    But no matter how many teams eventually emerge as threats to make the trip to Bowling Green in March, the two constants are Anderson County and South Oldham, the same two teams that have been ranked at the top of the region the last two years.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL PREVIEW:...

    More than eight months later, it still hurts.

    They are haunted by the sight of Courtney Sandlin swishing an uncontested 10-foot jump shot with 12 seconds left to give Walton-Verona a 40-39 victory and the Eighth Region championship last March.

    It was an Eighth Region championship that Anderson County's Lady Bearcats felt should have been theirs. But the only way they returned to Bowling Green for the state basketball tournament, where they had played in 2010, was as spectators.

  • Kickoff, ticket prices set for...

    Anderson County football will host the state Class 5A semifinal game against Pulaski Southwestern on Friday, Nov. 25 at 7:30 p.m. All tickets will be $7 at the gate, according to Anderson athletic director Rick Sallee.

    No passes will be accepted for the state semi-final.
    The winner of that game will play the Bowling Green-John Hardin winner for the state Class 5A championship on Saturday, Dec. 3 at L.T. Smith Stadium on the campus of Western Kentucky University.  Kickoff for that game is set for 8 p.m., Eastern time.

  • Bearcats to tackle Southwestern...

    It is hard to imagine a team with an interim head coach making the semifinals of the state football playoffs.


    Meet Southwestern, the team that will be trying to end Anderson County’s season on Friday night.


    A solid program since the school was formed out of Pulaski County High School 19 years ago, Southwestern has flourished after Andy Stephens took over when Dale Anderson, the only coach the school had ever had, stepped down during the season.

  • Sprague had own cheering section

    HEBRON – Anderson County receiver Matt Sprague could not have picked a better time to grab his first touchdown of the year.


    The senior leaped to pull down Seth Carmichael’s pass in the Conner end zone with 43.6 seconds left tie the regional championship  game. Classmate Bill Rose nailed the extra point for the regional crown.


    Not only did Sprague get mobbed by his teammates after the catch, he had his own personal cheering section at Conner, which is located in the Greater Cincinnati area in Boone County.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Top 10...

    The Anderson County girls’ basketball team embarks on its own journey pointing toward Bowling Green nest week. The Lady Bearcats start their trek in earnest when they host Lafayette on Tuesday, Nov. 29 in the season opener for both teams.

    It figures to be a difficult opener for the Lady Bearcats, who were ranked eighth in the state in the Courier-Journal pre-season coaches poll released last seek. Anderson was also ranked at the top of the Eighth Region by the coaches.

  • COLUMN: Something else for the...

    Before she left the football field at Conner High School last Friday night, Bridget Wells had to add a little to her memorabilia collection.

    An assistant principal at Anderson County, Wells stepped away from the large gathering of football family members, friends and well-wishers then reached into the same end zone where the Bearcats had scored the winning touchdown in the regional championship game a few minutes before.

    She simply grabbed a few blades of grass.

    White grass, at that.

  • Brown signs with Jacksonville...

    Anderson County High School basketball player senior Sydney Brown signed with Jacksonville State University of the Ohio Valley Conference during the early signing period.


    A 6-foot-1 center, Brown is a three-year starter for Anderson County. She actually started playing varsity basketball as an eighth-grader and her teams have made it at least to the Eighth Region championship game every season.

  • KHSAA proposes new soccer...
