  • 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.

  • Pioneer tough! Transylvania...

    USA Triathlon and Transylvania University Athletics have announced Transylvania is the first school in Kentucky—and the 15th in the nation—to add women’s collegiate triathlon as an NCAA varsity sport. The NCAA Division III women’s triathlon team will begin competing in the 2018-19 season according to a news release from the school.

  • No easy answers to Anderson...

    Nearly every time I make my way to what is now called Bob Ware Field, I have some memory of the great football games I have seen on the Anderson County High School campus.

    I was there in 1968 when the Bearcats, all 25 or so of them, whipped Tates Creek, which had so many players suited up that when the first Commodore hit the field for pregame warmups, more were still emerging from the school gym, where the team dressed. Anderson 20, Tates Creek 0.

  • Efforts for turf field continue...

    With the Anderson County High School fall sports season getting underway, much focus will be on the condition of the school’s football field.

    Since spring practice, the playing surface at Bob Ware Field has undergone a bit of a facelift with Bermudagrass plugged in to create a much better and tougher surface than the one that had been in place longer than anyone associated with the program can remember.

    In the past, any significant rain left the field, in a sponge-like condition, holding water through out and often being a quagmire late in the season.

  • Lady Cats look for lower scores...

    There could be some changes coming if the Anderson County girls’ golf team reaches its ultimate goal.

    Well, sort of, according to Lady Bearcat coach Robbie Hanks.

    “When we go to the state, I am Robert Hanks,” the fourth-year coach laughed.

    The dog days of late summer slow everything down. The heat and humidity along with the long days make outside work sweaty and arduous.

    Fishing slows during the dog days as well. Catching game fish from a lake or stream during a 90-degree plus day provides a challenge that anglers often fail to conquer.

  • New coach looks for Bearcat vets...

    Change is inevitable in life. It’s a lesson the veterans on the Anderson County High School boys’ golf team are learning every day as they head into the 2017 season.

    For the Bearcats that major difference from a year ago is first-year coach Dylan Hancock. He’s the program’s third coach in three years. Last year’s head coach, Nate Hollon, resigned when he learned he would be having hip surgery during the season.
