  • Bearcats could be better than...

    Bryan Hyatt knows the eyes of local sports fans will be on his every move in his inaugural season as boys’ basketball coach at Anderson County High School.

    “That will be one thing that is different,” Hyatt smiled as he talked about his first summer leading the Bearcat program. “In the past, Glen (Drury) was head coach and he took the heat.”

  • Much gray area in prep transfer...

    What might have been a sign of the times we live in was making the headlines recently.

    In case you missed it, Mike Harmon, the father of Zion Harmon, who just completed his freshman season at Adair County High School and one of the nation’s top basketball prospects in the Class of 2021, announced that his son was looking at transferring to another school in Kentucky for his sophomore year. He named several schools as being on the list.

    As an eighth-grader, Harmon was a major factor in Bowling Green’s first state championship.

  • Seven Anderson softballers...

    Seven members of the 2018 Anderson County High School softball team have been named to the All-Academic Softball team by the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association.

    Seniors Carmen Holt and Kelsey Sutherland were named to the first team as were juniors Jenni Beasley, Taylor Brown, Mattie Copenhaver and Lexi Tinsley. Senior Ashlyn Dearinger was named honorable mention.

  • Minor League championship game...
  • Young Mudcats sweep to own...

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats 13-and-under baseball team swept through four games to win its own tournament Saturday and Sunday at Barnes Memorial Field at Anderson County High School.

  • Older Mudcats earn split in...

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats 15-and-under baseball team split four games in the Next Level 15u/16u Prospects Tournament, held last Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Lexington. The Mudcats are now 4-4 on the summer and will host their own tournament at Anderson County High School this weekend.

  • Illegally kept deer fawn leads...

    Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources release

    The report of a deer fawn being kept illegally led to drug charges against a man and his mother in Marion County.

    On Monday, June 11, conservation officers with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources charged 26-year-old Matt White, of Lebanon, Ky., with holding protected wildlife and one count of cultivation of five or more marijuana plants.

  • Riley named MSC Student-Athlete...

    With her college golf career over, Kaitlyn Riley knows things have been much different than she expected when she got her diploma from Anderson County High School.

    “If someone had told me when I graduated from high school that four years later you would have done all that at the University of the Cumberlands, I would not have believed that,” Riley said last Friday.

  • Someone forgot to tell Kentucky...

    Well, now, what about all that talk that the Kentucky-Indiana All-Star game is dead?

    You know how it’s been for years: Indiana boys win in Kentucky. Indiana boys win in Indianapolis. Players move on to college. Repeat.

    It’s dead, the critics have said for years. Indiana routinely has several big time recruits while Kentucky hasn’t had anyone become a major player in Division I basketball in years.

  • Penny part of All-Star history

    Not only did Cobe Penny get a literal once-in-a-lifetime opportunity last week, the Anderson County High School graduate was part of a part of history.

    Penny was a member of the Kentucky All-Star team that took on Indiana in the summer series between the best players in both states. That in itself is a major accomplishment as Penny became only the seventh local young man to be selected for the series, which dates to 1940.
