  • Bearcats to face two district opponents this week

    The middle of the high school boys’ soccer season is here, which can only mean one thing.

    It’s time for some district games.

    Two of Anderson County’s four district games this season will take place this week, beginning with a game at Woodford County on Tuesday before hosting Spencer County on Thursday.

  • Raising awareness on the course

    Before every home match, Anderson County girls’ golf head coach Robert Hanks gathers the competing teams next to the clubhouse for a pre-match meeting.

    Before he describes the course the players are about to play on or what pairing is heading to each hole, he makes note of the awareness board that’s placed up against the clubhouse wall.

    The awareness board has 15 small ribbons on it varying in colors and patterns. Each ribbon is a sign of support for various diseases and illnesses, and is something that can easily be pinned to a shirt or hat.
