Today's Sports

  • Bearcats eye return to glory

    The last two years have not seen real Anderson County football.

    Oh, the Bearcats have run onto the home field wearing those red jerseys, white pants and white helmets. The band has been playing the “Washington and Lee Swing” and the stands have generally been packed unless it has been raining.

  • Bearcats open grid season Friday...

    When Anderson County travels to Winchester Friday night, it’s doubtful that grabbing a case of Ale-8-One will be on the Bearcats’ minds.

    Anderson opens the 2017 football season at George Rogers Clark just up the road from where the regionally famous soft drink is bottled but that is about the only thing Bearcat coach Mark Peach believes will be soft about Clark County when his team hits town.

  • Anderson field problems...

    The fall sports season is no longer creeping up on us. It’s here.

    Now.

    Six weeks before the calendar officially declares that we are in the fall season.

    The Anderson County High School golf teams have been in action for over a week and before the next edition of The Anderson News hits the stands, the soccer and volleyball teams will have gone from scrimmaging to playing for real.

  • What a haul!

    Joshua Phillips was on a roll.

    Having just hauled in one exceptional catfish a couple of hours earlier, while fishing at Miller’s Lake off Ninevah Road, the volunteer firefighter landed what he said is the largest catfish he ever caught.

    “I caught a 16 1/2-pounder two hours before that,” he said. “It’s not quite as impressive as the 28-pounder I caught, though.”

  • Lady Cats look to renew winning...

    A renewal of spirit seems to be the best description of Anderson County girls’ soccer as the Lady Bearcats get ready for the 2017 campaign.

    Coming off an uncharacteristic 8-13-2 season that was riddled by injuries, the Lady Bearcats are relatively healthy physically and mentally as they open with Louisville Male Monday night in the Mercy Academy Battle of the Turfs.

  • UK women’s basketball season...

    From staff reports

    The 2017-18 Kentucky women’s basketball season is less than 100 days away and new season ticket purchases and season ticket renewals are available at ukathletics.com/tickets.

  • Midway to host high school...

    Midway University men’s basketball coach, Joe Krupinski, has announced that the Eagles will be hosting a Prospect Camp on Saturday, Aug. 12, according to a news release.

    “We are excited to host the first-ever Prospect Camp for our program,” said Krupinski. “It will be a great opportunity for our staff to work with some talented high school players here in our gym and a chance for them to get a first-hand look at our school and program.”

  • Lady Bearcat softball to host...

    The Anderson County High School softball team will be hosting the 2017 LacyCat Softball Golf Scramble on Sunday, Sept. 24, according to a news release.

    The scramble will be held at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course and will feature food and drinks. Door prizes and a silent auction are also part of the program.

    The cost is $60 per person.

    For more information, contact Ann Case at 502-680-0755 or Nikki Lay at 502-517-2264.

  • Ruble leads Anderson golfers at...

    With so much uncertainty surrounding the Anderson County High School girls’ golf team, the season-opening result at the Collins Lady Titan Classic was on that the team hopes to build upon during the next two months.

    The Lady Bearcats shot a combined 441 in the tournament, held last Monday at the Shelbyville Country Club. The score was good enough for eighth place in the 12-team meet.

  • Mentor-youth dove hunts...

    The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is changing its application process for the popular mentor-youth dove hunts being offered Sept. 2, according to a news release.

    The hunts allow adults to take kids hunting in dove fields that limit the number of participants, the release said.
