  • Italian tennis player...

    The last time that Valeria Maurizi, a member of the Anderson County girls’ tennis team, played tennis, she was a small child.

    And in a different country on a completely different continent.

    Maurizi is originally from Moiano, Italy, a small town two-and-a-half hours southeast from Rome. Moiano is also less than an hour away from Naples, an town that sits right along the Tyrrhenian Sea coast.

  • Lady Bearcats gearing up for...

    In the past two weeks that the Anderson County softball team has been in school, they’ve played in a weekend tournament.

    This weekend, the Lady Bearcats will yet again compete in another tournament, their third in four weeks, as they’ll aim for the first place prize in the Capital City Classic.

    In the previous two weekend tournaments Anderson competed in, the Lady Titan Classic and the Lady Dragons’ Classic, the Lady Bearcats placed second, and they’re hungry to end that streak of runner-up finishes with a first place finish instead.

  • Bearcats still searching for...

    As the Anderson County baseball team continues searching for its first win since March 19, every week is like a fresh start for them, and the same goes for this week.

    The Bearcats will have some time to prepare for their next opponent, as they have a six-day stretch from their last game to their next one, which will be at Collins on Friday at 6 p.m.

  • Mustangs take in UK game

    To be the best, sometimes you have to watch the best and try to replicate what they do in order to have success.

    That was one of the reason’s why the Anderson County Middle School softball team went to a Kentucky softball game a little over a week ago. The main purpose of going to the game was to build the team’s bond and chemistry heading into the state tournaments that lie ahead on the Mustangs’ schedule.

    Mission accomplished.

  • Mustangs sweep individual awards...

    The Anderson County Middle School archery team continued its fantastic season with another victory this past weekend, as the Mustangs claimed the first and second place team awards at the Mercer County Titan 3D Tournament.

    Overall the Mustangs scored 1,683 points, which is another season-high.

    The high score was fueled by individual success from the Anderson County representatives, as the Mustangs won all six individual awards.

  • Woods’ win a top moment in U.S....

    In the middle of my living room, standing on my two feet leaning against a cat tree, just a couple of feet in front of a TV.

    That’s where I was when Tiger Woods won the 2019 Masters Tournament with his second putt on the 72nd hole early Sunday afternoon.

    I bet you’ll remember where you were as well during that masterful moment, even if you’re a golf fan or not. Woods’ win was a significant moment in the sports realm, and it will be remembered forever.

  • Bearcat travels to Germany for...

    Panama City, Virginia Beach, the Outer Banks and any other beach setting are the typical places young kids flock to for spring break.

    Dortmund, Germany is not a top destination for spring breakers, but that’s where Bearcat goalkeeper Liam Sutherland spent the past week while Anderson County was not in school.

  • Spring turkey season begins this...

    The spring turkey hunting season is right around the corner, and it’s time for hunters to brush up on everything there is to know about the season.

    The spring turkey season will begin on April 13 and last until May 5, a total of 23 consecutive days.

    The bag limit for this season is two male turkeys or turkeys with a visible beard.

    No more than one bird can be taken from the field per day.

  • Lady Bearcats gearing up for...

    The Anderson County softball team is currently on an impressive six-game stretch, but the road ahead is about to get tougher.

    That’s just the result of a difficult schedule overall, and with the Lady Bearcats finding more success than they did earlier in the season, they’re more equipped to handle the tougher competition.

    After beginning the week with a home game win against Madison Southern, a top team from the 11th Region, the Lady Bearcats will host Boyle County on Thursday in what promises to be a good matchup.

  • Bearcats working through mental...

    As the Bearcat baseball team returns from a spring break tournament with no wins, it’s back to the drawing board for a team that’s looking to get back on track.

    However, it’s not many X’s and O’s on the drawing board for Anderson County, it’s their confidence and how to bring it back to a winning level.
