  • Tennis teams playing many double...

    The Anderson County tennis teams might be true road warriors this year, but Cook says that is a combination of several factors.

    The Anderson girls played Shelby County last Thursday and will not return to the court until April 10. The boys' team plays at Gallatin County today, March 28, but will be off until April 11. “The long break is just due to the fact that our spring break (April 2-6) does not line up with anyone else in the region,” says girls' tennis coach Jeremy Cook, who is also Anderson's assistant athletics director.

  • Tennis teams winning with...

    There is a spirit of cooperation around the Anderson County tennis teams this spring.

    Not only are the Bearcats and Lady Bearcats sharing the same practice courts, they are largely playing the same schedules and are, in fact, sharing coaches.

  • TRACK: Striving for improvement

    Anderson County track and field might be an example of simply working hard and letting that take care of everything else.

    And so far, things are working out well for a team that was expected to be rebuilding in nearly every area.

  • COLUMN: Mr. Wildcat would be...

    I just wonder what Bill Keightley would be saying about all this Commonwealth Commotion.

    Everyone knew Anderson County's most famous son. At least everyone who even remotely follows college basketball, and then some, that is.

    Raised just south of Lawrenceburg and a graduate of Kavanaugh High School, “Big Smooth” as the players called him, served as hoops equipment manager 48 years. His tenure spanned those of coaches Rupp, Hall, Sutton, Pitino, Smith and Gillispie.

    He was simply Mr. Wildcat.

  • OUTDOORS: Set up on field edges...

    I know it feels great outside the last several weeks but spring is here at least two to three weeks too early thanks to not much winter and a whole lot of rain. Grass and weeds are shooting up around my place nearly as fast as the gas prices.

  • OUTDOORS: Additional fishing...

    Anglers have new access to the Taylorsville Lake headwaters in central Kentucky just in time for the popular white bass spawning run, according to a release from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife resources.

    "We're going to be putting a lot of smiles on the faces of people," said Bill Mitchell, foreman of the Taylorsville Lake Wildlife Management Area.

    Bearcat baseball alumni game set

    The Anderson County High School baseball program invites all former players and coaches to take part in the Second Annual Anderson County High School Alumni Game.

    The game will be played at Barnes Field on Sunday, March 25. First pitch is set for 2 p.m. Even-numbered year graduates will take on odd-numbered year grads.

    Anderson County baseball coach L.W. Barnes says there will be raffles, door prizes, silent auctions and much more with all proceeds benefiting the Anderson baseball program.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Bearcats eyeing...

    Years ago, someone thought up a catchy little phrase to emphasize the importance of an organization working together.

    “There is no I in team.”

    Last spring, Anderson County softball coach Brian Glass believed he saw his Lady Bearcats overlook that and focus on the fact that “M” and “E” are in the letters.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcat baseball looks...

    Anderson County was not supposed to go out with a whimper. Not Anderson County baseball.

    But there the Bearcats were last Memorial Day, just three days removed from their third district championship in four years, being hammered by North Oldham in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament.

    “It wasn't like it could not have happened,” remembers Anderson coach L.W. Barnes. “We knew we could be around .500 and still be competitive and North Oldham was better than I thought.”
