  • Anderson Archers win national...

    CINCINNATI – Two weeks prior to the S3DA Indoor National Championship, the Anderson County archery team placed third at the Kentucky S3DA State Championship, but felt disappointed with the result.

    Anderson believed they were good enough to contend for the state title, which they were. However, a mechanical error by one of their top archers cost the Bearcats a few points, which was the difference maker between finishing third and first.

  • Harp opens up on retirement...

    The sidelines at Anderson County’s football games next season will look a little different.

    Starting next season, Bearcat assistant football coach Sam Harp won’t be coaching Anderson on the sidelines, as he’s announced his retirement from high school football. Harp and his wife will move down to south Georgia, where they’ll be closer to Harp’s son and two of their grandchildren.

  • Rebuild enters year two for...

    After a last place finish in the regional meet last year, second year head coach for the Anderson County track team Richard Shearer believes his team can improve enough to avoid being the bottom team at regionals this year.

    One of the things that Shearer believes will help his team this season is the amount of returners he as to work with. While there are still athletes on the team that are new to track, a larger than usual amount of returners to the team has Shearer excited of how much they can improve.

  • Bearcats falter late in season...

    HARRODSBURG – After leading for a majority of Monday afternoon’s game against Mercer County, the Anderson County baseball team dropped its season opener to the Titans with a 4-3 loss.

    The Bearcats went into the final frame with a one run lead after giving up a run in the sixth inning, and Mercer scored the walk-off run off a hit-by-pitch from Jackson Snodgrass.

    “We really have some growth to do, but I’m really proud of the way they played today,” Bearcat head coach L.W. Barnes said after the game.

  • My Final Four predictions

    The time of the year where you are the most indecisive is here: the week you fill out your March Madness bracket.

    When it comes to filling out a bracket, there are two types of people. First, there’s the people who maybe recognize three teams in the bracket, and finish making their picks in five minutes.

    Then there’s the people who have some knowledge on college basketball, and will spend more time than necessary breaking down every matchup, and debating teams in your head all the way to the start of the first tipoff on Thursday.

  • Defense the key for Anderson...

    As the weather starts to show signs of spring, it means baseball season for the Anderson County Bearcats is near.

    After a winter full of snow days and practices spent indoors, the Bearcats are now a few days away from their season opener against Mercer County, which will take place in Harrodsburg on March 18 at 5:30 p.m. From there, Anderson will play in its home opener against Franklin County on March 19 at 5:30 p.m., followed by another road game at Western Hills the next day at 5:30 p.m.

  • Lady Bearcats balanced with...

    Anderson County softball head coach Jeff Hawkins learned a lot in his debut season as head coach of the Lady Bearcats last year, and now he’s ready for year two.

    One thing that will make his sophomore campaign easier for him is his mix of upper and underclassmen. Typically people would assume that the juniors and seniors would play over the little guys, but Hawkins doesn’t believe that to be the case heading into the start of the season.

  • Bearcats’ quest for winning...

    The boys’ tennis season for the Anderson County Bearcats is days away, and the Bearcats are hoping to build off of what was a successful season last year.

    In 2018, Anderson posted a winning record under fourth year head coach Seann Speray. This year, the Bearcats return six players from last year’s squad, and they hope to post another winning season in 2019.

  • Lady Bearcats looking forward to...

    The head coach for the Anderson County girls’ tennis team, Holly Wampler, has two goals for the upcoming season: to accomplish goals and have fun.

    No goal is more important than the other for Wampler and her inexperienced squad, which is why Wampler enjoys coaching her team mixed with kids who play on the USTA circuit and kids who have never picked up a tennis racquet before.

    “It’s still a lot of fun to have a team and have beginners and have them learn and grow as players,” Wampler said.

  • Ruble honored at Miss Basketball...

    Last week, Jaclynn Ruble did something that only three other Lady Bearcat basketball players can say they’ve done.

    Ruble was honored at the Mr. and Miss Kentucky Basketball Awards Banquet in Lexington, becoming the fourth Anderson County girls’ basketball player, first since Kaci Currens, to be a candidate for Kentucky high school basketball’s top honor.
