  • Softball roundup: Lady Cats roll...

    The chip on Anderson County's shoulder grew to an enormous size on the softball diamond last week.

    The Lady Bearcats, picked as the Eighth Region favorite by the region's coaches, rebounded from their first loss of the season in a resounding fashion. Anderson recorded three wins by a combined score of 30-1 and improving to 4-1 on the season.

    Anderson's hitters pounded the ball while the pitchers kept opponents off the bases.

  • Lady Net Cats look to become...

    Anderson County tennis will be looking at different goals during the season that began two weeks ago.

    Anderson girls' coach Jeremy Cook says of his team, “We have five girls returning that played in last season's regional tournament, so we have experience where it counts. In a region that always has great tennis players, we will be a team that no one will want to draw in the regional tournament.”

  • Experienced Brown is newcomer to...

    If the Anderson County track program has become a relay, it might be that new coach Keith Brown is expecting to run a strong anchor leg.

    Brown takes over as the school's fourth head coach in the last six years, but unlike his predecessors, he brings a wealth of experience to the Anderson program.

    “I started coaching at Harrodsburg High School in 1990,” Brown says. “I was (Hall of Fame coach) Alvis Johnson's assistant coach there until 1997, when I took over as head coach.”

    You hear about Lake St. Clair, Mille Lacs, Lake Erie and the upper Mississippi River as waters that produce the best smallmouth fishing in the United States.

    As far as catching numbers of smallmouth with many of those larger than 4 pounds, you can’t argue with the sentiment. However, to catch the largest specimens in the world, you need to fish in Kentucky and Tennessee.

  • Lady Mustangs cap middle school...

    The Anderson County Middle School team capped the season with eighth-grade night on March 18. St. Dominic put a bit of a damper on the night, sending the Lady Mustangs to a defeat.

  • Anderson West second, East third...

    Anderson County youth basketball all-stars competed in the Anderson County Invitational Tournament last weekend.

  • Anderson archers finish third at...

    Anderson County High School archers continued their excellence in the KHSAA/National Archery in the Schools Program state tournament, held last Monday at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville.

    Junior C.J. Dunaway led Anderson with a 296 out of a possible 300 points. Dunaway's effort was good enough for second place in the boys' division of the tournament. Dunaway finished two points behind Dustin Johnson of Graves County. Dunaway scored 26 bulls eyes out of 30 attempts.

  • Lady Bearcats make statement in...

    Anderson County's concern was just not warranted.

    Even with most of the lineup joining the Lady Bearcat softball team three days before, Anderson rolled past visiting Shelby County, 9-0, in the season opener last Tuesday.

    Six starters had been playing on the school's basketball team, which had not completed its season until the Friday before. Apparently, they did not miss a beat and made sure that a 30th District rival understood why the Lady Bearcats are the coaches' pre-season pick to win the Eighth Region.

  • Ashburn signs with Centre

    Anderson County High School senior Tristin Ashburn recently signed to play football at Centre College. Ashburn accounted for 452 all-purpose yards during his senior season and was in on 54 tackles from his middle linebacker slot as Anderson made it to the state semi-finals. Ashburn cracked the starting lineup during his freshman season and stayed there throughout his career.
