  • FOOTBALL: Pleasant surprises emerge in spring practice

    There is little doubt that expectations are very high for the Anderson County High School football team this fall. The Bearcats finished 8-3 in 2012 and will likely be one of the favorites to not only win District 6, but advance deep into the state playoffs. A second trip to the state Class 5A championship game in three years is not out of the question.

    Still, there are some holes to fill and improvements to be made following a 48-0 loss in the first round of last year's state playoffs.

  • TENNIS: All in the family

    There won't be many surprises around Amanda and Hannah Wampler this year.

    The Anderson County doubles tandem caught nearly everyone, including themselves, off guard with their run to the Eighth Region tennis tournament final in 2012, but even though they are noticeably better players in 2013, no one is guaranteeing a repeat or better when the tennis post-season gets underway next week.

    The girls will play their first two rounds at Western Hills High School on Monday, then move to Franklin County the rest of the week.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: UK signee puts Bearcats in early hole at North Oldham

    University of Kentucky signee Connor Heady quickly ended Anderson County's bid for a no-hitter or shutout Saturday.

    Heady drilled Brandon Eliadis' first pitch over the left-field fence to give North Oldham a 1-0 lead as the Mustangs outlasted Anderson 4-3 in Goshen.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: Brown, Durr lead Bearcats past Butler

    Anderson County wants the world to know that Bearcat baseball is not quite done.

    It had been easy to write off an Anderson season that had been marked by inconsistency, no home field on which to practice and a losing streak that reached six games before heading to Louisville to take on a very good Butler team that had won three straight and five of its last six.

    They say baseball is a funny game. A result of Anderson County 5, Butler 2 showed just how unpredictable the game can be.

  • Rain alters Wednesday schedule

    The Anderson County High School baseball game at Washington County Wednesday has been canceled due to the rains.  The Anderson boys' tennis match at North Bullitt is also canceled due to weather.  The Anderson girls' tennis match at Gallatin County will go on as scheduled.

    Last week we witnessed the unthinkable: thousands of Bostonians, along with thousands of others from around the globe who were gathered to partake in the Boston Marathon, experienced the horror that accompanies a terrorist attack as bombs exploded near the finish line. The graphic scenes are forever burned into our mind, along with the uneasiness that causes us to think, “Could this happen where I live?” After all, who would think of a marathon being a target for terrorism?
