  • Lady Bearcats third in...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ soccer team got the season underway with a split in the I-65 Battle of the Turfs, hosted by Mercy Academy last week.

    The Lady Bearcats dropped a 6-1 decision to Louisville Male in the tournament opener last Monday, but recovered for a 4-3 win over Thomas Nelson in Saturday’s consolation game. In between, a contest against Mercy was called because of the weather. Anderson won a coinflip to be the three seed in the consolation bracket.

  • Bearcats travel to Meade County

    Fresh off its win at George Rogers Clark last week, Anderson County travels to Meade County Friday night for what Bearcat coach Mark Peach expects to be a battle.

    A Class 6A school, Meade fell to 6A power Simon Kenton, 47-13, in the season opener last Friday in Brandenburg. Peach says that result is not indicative of the Green Wave’s potential. “I have seen them on film and they are good,” Peach said.

  • Favorite player taught life...

    It was back in 1964 when I fell in love with baseball.

    It always has been, probably always will be my favorite sport.

    When I discovered the “Game of the Week,” announcers Dizzy Dean and his podnuh Pee Wee Reese, I also learned that the team closest to my Anderson County home, the Cincinnati Reds, had a guy suiting up with the coolest name I had ever heard.

    Vada Pinson.

    The man could hit and do so with power. He could steal bases and when roaming center field, he seemed to just glide to the ball.

  • New net coach looks to hang...

    As he stops practice to point out some errors in how his Anderson County volleyball team is doing things, new coach Ryan Brown displays the patience of knowing he's dealing with high school girls, but also the drive that indicates he has high expectations for the Lady Bearcats.

    “I push my girls every single day,” says Brown, who is in the first year of his first head coaching job. “I demand perfection. I know no one is perfect but if you practice perfect, you play perfect. I am really tough on the girls and challenge them every day.”

  • Undefeated teams to be honored...
