    Even though Anderson County is a heavy favorite to repeat as Eighth Region softball champions, the program’s history suggests the Lady Bearcats should be wary of such lofty rankings.

    After Anderson’s two state tournament appearances, the Lady Bearcats faced similar circumstances but did not make the return trip to the big show.

    Small creeks across Kentucky that normally run placid currently rage with brown froth. Reservoirs now cover marina parking lots and lakeside campgrounds.

    CARROLLTON – In the end, this group of Anderson County Lady Bearcats only had eight lives.

  • Eighth Region Tourney Notes:...

    When Simon Kenton defeated Anderson County for the Eighth Region championship Sunday afternoon, it was the sixth time in the last eight years the teams have met in the championship game. That fact has been talked about around the region for some time.

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg boys’ basketball team placed third in the Kentucky Christian School Athletic Association state tournament, held Feb. 20-21 at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.
