  • Mudcats open season in Woodford...

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats opened the summer baseball season with a strong start in the Woodford County Summer Kickoff tournament, held in Versailles.

    The Mudcats fielded two squads, a 13-and-under team along with a 15-and-under team. Unlike most teenage travel teams, the Mudcats are made up largely of local boys, all of whom will compete for Anderson County High at the high school level.

    The 13-and-under group won two of three games in the tournament, defeating the Kentucky Baseball Club and the West Virginia Bombers before losing to the Kentucky Rockers.

  • Lady Bearcat golfers celebrate...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ golf team held its annual team awards banquet on May 11, hosted by Bart and Meredith Lewis.

    “The 2017 season was a very successful season with many golfers making great improvements in their 9- and 18-hole scoring averages,” said coach Robert Hanks.

  • Anderson archers place well in...

    Anderson County archery teams recorded high finishes in the National Archery in the Schools Program world tournament, held June 7-9 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

    In the 3-D IBO competition, Robert B. Turner Elementary placed third out of 24 schools competing. Fifth-grader Jacob Wallace placed second, scoring 287 (of a possible 300) against 204 boys in the age group.

    The Anderson County Middle School team placed 13th out of 46 schools in the tournament. Eighth-grader Michael Bishop finished sixth out of 303 boys with a 291 score.

  • A family tradition to shout about

    Cobe Penny remembers sitting in the stands watching the Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Game.

    It was back in 2009 when Cobe’s older brother, C.J., had been selected to play for Kentucky in the annual two-game summer series pitting the best seniors of the basketball hotbeds against each other.

    “I remember watching (C.J.) play and Stephan Van Treese came down the lane and two-hand dunked it,” Cobe says of the Indiana star who later suited up for the Louisville Cardinals. “It looked like the goal was going to come off.”

  • Cann says one more year

    Makenzie Cann isn’t done on the basketball court.

    Not yet, anyway.

    The Anderson County native had announced in March that she was forgoing her final season of eligibility at the University of Kentucky after playing two years for the Wildcats. She had begun her collegiate career at the University of Cincinnati before transferring.

    Cann graduated from UK in early May but an opportunity to play while pursuing her Master’s of Business Admininistration materialized.

  • Bearcat hoops, football top...

    With the local school year ending Monday, it’s time to quickly look back on the year in Anderson County scholastic sports.

    It wasn’t the greatest of years at the high school level, at least by the standards of some previous seasons, but there were still some great accomplishments. Undoubtedly the most memorable nights of the sports year came on November 3 and February 23.

    Back on November 3, the Anderson County football team pulled off a stunner when the Bearcats won at Fern Creek in the state playoffs.

  • All-Region Pick
  • Dulaney signs
  • Bearcat Den changes hands
  • Hyatt prepared and ready to go

    Bryan Hyatt believes he’s ready and prepared for the challenge.

    Of course, anyone who has worked around Glen Drury for nearly 20 years knows everything begins with preparation. It doesn’t matter if one is talking about an upcoming basketball season, a tournament game or a routine January practice with a patsy coming up on the schedule.
