  • Madness can’t describe what...

    You probably won’t believe this but I had another column written to run in this space.


    I looked at the calendar, decided that I wanted to watch more of the NCAA Tournament, so I wrote a nice little opinion piece last Wednesday and counted myself ahead of the game.

    That plan was busted.

    How appropriate, given the weekend.

  • Bearcats till swinging for the...

    When a high school sports program has built a reputation like Anderson County baseball, there is always a high expectation.

    As they open the 2018 season, things are no different for the Bearcats. as they are coming off a regional runner-up finish -- the tying run was on base when the final out was recorded in the championship game against Simon Kenton -- and are expected to be a force in the Eighth Region and a contender for their third 30th District title in four years.

  • Bearcat netters look to reach...

    With five starters back from last year’s lineup, Anderson County boys’ tennis is in a position that the Bearcats could be improved over last season.

    It’s all in untapped potential, however. Anderson has the ability to be “really good” according to Coach Seann Speray. But in last week’s season opener at home against Collins, the Bearcats won just one of five varsity matches.

  • Anderson archers have big day

    The Anderson County Middle School archery team hosted the Mustangs’ pre-state tournament Saturday with the local teams having outstanding days.

    The Anderson County High School team captured first place with five individuals earning medals in the high school division. Henry Thompson took first place, Wade Wilson second, Luke Slone third and Dalton Burkhead fourth in the boys’ competition while Maura Dean placed third on the girls’ side.

  • Largemouth bass removal planned...

    Crews from the fisheries division of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will remove largemouth bass from Beaver Lake in Anderson County in the coming weeks to alleviate overcrowding and improve growth rates of fish.

  • Anderson All-Stars
  • Carrico signs with Hanover
  • Harley signs
  • A season of superlatives

    I don’t know about you, but I wasn’t ready for the high school basketball season to end.

    Back in November, things looked somewhat bright for both Anderson County High School teams. The optimists thought there was a chance the Lady Bearcats and Bearcats could both be playing in their respective Sweet 16s. The pessimists thought there was a good chance both Anderson teams would be one-and-done when the postseason came around.

  • Bearcat spring sports open...
