  • Golf tourney raises cash for...

    This past weekend the Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course hosted the United Way Golf Scramble Tournament, with all proceeds going to the United Way of the Bluegrass organization.

    According to Carol Bates, Vice President of regional development for the organization, the tournament raised roughly $4,500. The tournament has been in place for 25 years, and it has helped raise over $100,000 for United Way, Bates estimates.

    Nine teams participated in the tournament, with a four-man team of Jerry Carlton, Will Carlton, Gerald Gilpin and Tim Tingle coming out on top.

  • Mustang track takes home...

    The Anderson County middle school track team won a pair of trophies at the Salt River Conference Championships on Monday night, as the boys’ team tied for first with West Jessamine while the girls finished second behind West Jessamine.

    Both the boys and the girls’ team were far ahead of third place, cementing themselves as one of the conference’s best. Along with that, they also set new records and had fun, which is all that Mustang track head coach Josh Morgan wanted to accomplish at the meet.

  • Multiple outcomes possible for...

    With only a few regular season games left on the schedule, that can only mean one thing: the postseason is near.

    However, Anderson County softball’s seed for the 30th District Tournament is far from decided. All of that will be decided in the coming week, as four games from May 7-14 will determine the seeds for the 30th District Tournament, which will take place at Shelby County following the final week of the regular season.

  • Anderson archery takes home...

    Inches were all that separated Anderson County’s boys’ archery team and Lincoln County’s boys team at last week’s KHSAA State Archery Tournament.

    After the first of three flights at the state championship, Bullitt Central sat in first with a score of 2,020 and 140 10s. That score wound up being the winning score, but the second and third place spots were ultimately decided between Anderson Coounty and Lincoln County.

  • Extra work paying off for Pierce

    Every athlete knows that in order to improve your game, you have to put in extra work when no one else is working.

    That’s what sophomore distance running standout Mason Pierce did in the preseason before this year’s track season.

    After a successful cross country season in the fall, Pierce decided he wanted to take his next running to the next level for the spring track season. After averaging around 40 miles per week for cross country, Pierce bumped up his weekly mileage to 50 in the preseason for track.

  • Bearcats gearing up for home...

    Since the calendar flipped to April, the Anderson County baseball team has played 12 of its last 16 games on the road, but that’s about to change.

    In six of Anderson County’s nine final games, they’ll play in the comfort of their own ballpark, beginning with a six-game home stand that will start this afternoon and end next Tuesday.

  • Louisville angler sets new...

    The new Kentucky state saugeye record was set last Friday when Dennis Rhea caught a 6-pound-13-ounce saugeye at the Guist Creek Lake in Shelby County.

    Rhea, a Louisville resident, was fishing at the lake with his black Labrador doodle when the new state record struck his silver minnow-shaped crankbait.

    Rhea successfully brought the fish to land, securing the new state record, which had stood since 1998.

  • Kentucky Derby ends in...

    Last year’s Kentucky Derby was highlighted by a record amount of rainfall, and this year, history was made once again, but it had nothing to do with the rain.

    Coming around the final turn in the must-watch race, multiple horses were horses were in contention, which created a lot of bumping and jostling. By the time the horses reached the end of the straightaway, Maximum Security pulled away and finished first after leading the entire race.

  • Anderson ends slump with string...

    For most of the season, the biggest storyline that shadowed the Anderson County baseball team was a lengthy losing streak, but that’s no longer the case.

    After Anderson’s losing streak had extended to 16 games, the longest since L.W. Barnes became head coach of the Bearcats in 1999, Anderson has won four of their last five, all of which were pretty convincing victories for the Bearcats.

  • Bearcats wrap up spring practice

    There are four phases to the offseason program for the Anderson County football team, and the Bearcats just wrapped up phase two.

    After a productive weight room phase during the winter months, the Bearcats just finished their annual spring practices last week, the second phase of the offseason program.

    “Pretty much checked the boxes, we got done everything we needed to do,” head coach Mark Peach said. “Thankfully the weather cooperated, you never know in Kentucky.”
