  • It's wild, but it's no turkey

    Fred Cubberly grinned from ear to ear as he sampled Wild Turkey’s Kentucky Spirit in the distillery’s tasting room Friday. His bliss wasn’t born entirely from the bourbon. He’d only had an ounce or two. It was born out of the pleasure of simply being at Wild Turkey in Lawrenceburg.

  • Anderson duo named first team all state

    The Lady Bearcat seniors have been named to the Lexington Herald-Leader all-state first team, which was announced in Sunday's editions of that newspaper.

  • It's fun again for Bearcats in drubbing of Spencer County

    Baseball is supposed to be a fun game.

    And, for a real competitor, winning is usually much more fun than ending up on the short end of the score. Such was the case for the Anderson County baseball team during last Friday's 8-0 win over 30th District rival Spencer County.

    Anderson erupted for six runs in the bottom of the sixth to break open a tight game and put to rest a brief two-game losing skid that saw the Bearcats struggle in every area but the pitching mound.

  • Scoreboard woes frustrate Bearcat baseball fans

    If some fans could issue a grade on the baseball scoreboard at Anderson County High School, chances are an “F” would be forthcoming.

  • Lady Bearcats looking like powerhouse they were expected to be

    Anderson County softball is finally living up to its lofty pre-season expectations.

    Not that anything major was ever wrong with the Lady Bearcats, but after a week that saw them win seven of eight games by a combined 62-12 score, Anderson is showing signs it has designs not only on an Eighth Region championship but also making noise at the state tournament if the Lady Bearcats get there.

  • Anderson track team looks to keep climbing wall after big wins

    “The kids, as well as the coaches, were extremely proud of the finish for both teams,” said Anderson coach Keith Brown. “Thanks to a lot of things falling into place, we were able to come out on top. It was quite a scene to see all the parents who would not leave until we got those trophies.

  • Anderson lacrosse second in own tournament

    The Anderson County boys' lacrosse team placed second in the teams inaugural invitational tournament Saturday.

    Anderson defeated Collins, 10-9 in the first game of the tourney, but fell to Woodford County in the championship match.

    Anderson got big tournaments from Dillon Harrod, who scored nine goals over the two games, and goalie Matt Moses, who recorded 31 saves in the two-game set.
     

  • Lack of reliable scoreboard an embarrassment to Anderson baseball

    You probably know some well-meaning souls who espouse something along the line of, “The score should not matter. Just go out and play.”

    Those folk should have suited up at the Anderson County High School baseball field in recent years. It seems like more often than not, no one could have known the score unless he was keeping it himself.

    It really has been that bad in recent years when it has seemed like the chances of a no-hitter being thrown have been better than those of the scoreboard working.
