  • Smallish Lady Bearcats dreaming...

    Replacing nearly every cog in a machine is not easy, but that is what awaits the Anderson County High School volleyball program in 2016.

    Not only did the Lady Bearcats lose nine seniors, they are without tall frontline players who had the ability to dominate at the net and a defensive specialist who is now playing college volleyball.

  • Parents, businesses raising...

    Beth McFarland does not claim to be a football expert but she knew something was wrong when she attended one of her son’s practices at Anderson County Middle School recently.

    “The blocking sled pads were literally falling off,” she says. “They were in terrible shape.”

    McFarland’s husband, Tommy, is a welder, so he volunteered to repair the frame of the five-station sled, but replacing the pads will cost money. Quite a bit of money that the program does not have.

    The excitement of an opening day dove hunt when you are young spawns a lifetime of memories. Each year, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources plants dove fields that host mentor-youth hunts to introduce young people to the fun of dove hunting. Sign-ups for these fields began Monday, Aug. 8.

    From staff reports

    The Anderson County High School girls’ golf team showed great improvement when the Lady Bearcats played in the Henry County Invitational Tournament last Monday.

    Anderson shot a team score of 446, shaving 39 strokes off its total two days earlier at Shelby County.

    Anderson finished in seventh place, well behind tournament champion Owen County, which scored a 354. Collins, at 375, and Henry County, with a 391, finished second and third.

  • Learning at Lady Bearcat...
  • Title dream ends in championship...

    RICHMOND -- The Anderson County Little League 9- and 10-year-old all-star team went to Richmond with big dreams for last week’s state tournament at Lake Reba Park.

    Like all teams entering statewide play for the first time, the Anderson stars had visions of going home with the banner declaring them to be the best Little League team in Kentucky at their age level.

  • Enjoying the precious present

    As they gathered for a team photo last Wednesday, there were a few faint smiles and even fewer tears on the faces of the Anderson County Little League 9- and 10-year-old all-star team.

    They’d just taken a 17-4 beating from Owensboro Southern in the state championship game. The Owensboro team had gotten a leadoff home run, then sealed Anderson’s fate of being “mercy-ruled” with a grand slam that made it 17-3 in the top of the third.

  • Lady Bearcat golfers ‘can be as...

    Anderson County girls’ golf coach Robert Hanks leaves no doubt when it comes to his assessment of the potential of his team.

    “They can be as good as they want to be,” he says, “If they put in the time and effort.”

    Hanks knows he has several golfers with the ability to be very good high school players. But he also sees small numbers. Only seven girls had expressed interest in playing when Hanks talked about the season, which started Saturday in the Lady Rocket Classic at Weissinger Hills in Shelbyville.
