  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • It’s Masters week

    You’ve probably already heard this once before, but I’ll repeat it for you in case you haven’t heard it yet.

    It’s Masters week.

    I know that may not excite most of you since golf isn’t the most thrilling sport. No one is getting run over like in football or dunked on like in basketball, but to me, golf is still pretty exciting.

    And that excitement is multiplied by one thousand during The Masters week.

  • Registration for youth football...

    Registration for the Anderson County Youth Football League is now open for any kid wishing to play football next fall.

    The registration will remain open from now until July 10th. It costs $95 per kid, and the fee covers most of the items required for a uniform.

    The $95 charge is a $20 increase from the previous registration fee. This year the league will be run by the Anderson County Youth Football Board instead of the Parks and Recreation department, which has been running the youth football league in Anderson County for many years.

  • UK football spring game set for...

    After weeks of spring practice, the Kentucky football team will conclude its spring ball schedule with the annual Blue-White scrimmage, set for this Friday at Kroger Field at 6 p.m.

    The game will put the Wildcats against each other in what will be the first live-action viewing for the fans to see. It will also be the last time fans cans see the Wildcats play before the start of the 2019 season.

    Tickets for the game are available on ticketmaster.com. Tickets are free, but all online orders will include a service charge with each ticket.

  • Why you should cheer for Auburn...

    With Kentucky’s basketball season coming to an end this past weekend, it’s time to find a new team to cheer for in the NCAA Tournament for those who still have an interest in college basketball.

    The Final Four teams to choose from are Virginia, Michigan State, Texas Tech and Auburn, a school from each of the top conferences in college basketball this year. Since it’s unlikely that many of you have connections to any of those schools, the first place to start when it comes to choosing a Final Four team would be to pick based off conference.

  • Anderson makes huge strides at...

    In the first three games of the softball season for Anderson County, the Lady Bearcats scored five total runs while giving up 36, resulting in three straight losses.

    In the five games since, which all occurred last week, Anderson scored 54 runs while giving up 13, which has helped spark a five game winning streak after starting the season 0-3.

    The winning streak began last Thursday in a home game against Spencer County, a game Anderson desperately needed to win considering district seeding.
