  • ON TARGET WITH HIS COMEBACK

    Checking the results of Noah Kidwell’s efforts, it is quickly apparent this is no typical eighth-grader handling a bow and arrow.

    On the target set up in his family’s driveway, nearly every arrow is in or near the bullseye.

    A few feet over, stands a 3D deer figure where several arrows are stuck near where the heart would be located.

    “He normally averages around 280,” says Noah’s father, Chris Kidwell.

  • Bearcats rally, take advantage...

    Anderson County took advantage of three George Rogers Clark miscues in the bottom of the seventh to score twice and defeat the visiting Cardinals, 4-3, in high school baseball action Saturday afternoon.

    Given GRC’s 20-10 record, it might have been Anderson’s most impressive victory of the year.

  • Two Bearcats qualify for state...

    LEXINGTON – For several weeks, the track team at Anderson County High School might have resembled a M*A*S*H unit or a sick bay. Or both.

    Friday night, two of those who were not at full strength still had enough to place second in their best events in the Class AAA, Region 6 meet at Tates Creek High School. Connor Duncan, in 300-meter hurdles, and Alorra Sims, in both the long jump and triple jump, automatically qualified for the state meet, scheduled for Saturday, May 28 at the University of Kentucky.

  • Lady Cat bats silent in Bowling...

    Anderson County’s bats went silent over the weekend as the Lady Bearcats dropped three straight games at the Best of the West tournament, held in Bowling Green.

    Anderson, once ranked as high as No. 5 in the state, now stands at 20-9 on the season. The Lady Bearcats were to have played at Madison Central Monday night and host Louisville Ballard Tuesday after press time.

  • Bearcats still playing for May

    All season long, Anderson County baseball coach L.W. Barnes has been saying his team is “playing for May.”

    It means that Barnes felt his team, faced with a major rebuilding job against a rugged schedule could improve enough to be a factor in the 30th District and perhaps the Eighth Region by tournament time, which begins May 23.

    If last week is any indication, the Bearcats, despite a 3-18 record, might be living up to that plan.
