  • A season of superlatives

    I don’t know about you, but I wasn’t ready for the high school basketball season to end.

    Back in November, things looked somewhat bright for both Anderson County High School teams. The optimists thought there was a chance the Lady Bearcats and Bearcats could both be playing in their respective Sweet 16s. The pessimists thought there was a good chance both Anderson teams would be one-and-done when the postseason came around.

  • Bearcat spring sports open...

    The spring sports seasons get into full swing this week as most of the Anderson County High School teams are opening the season.

    The Anderson County boys’ and girls’ tennis teams host Collins on Thursday, March 15. Matches should begin at approximately 4:30 p.m.

    The Anderson track team is at Woodford County Saturday.

    The Anderson boys’ lacrosse team is at home Saturday against Central Hardin.

    The Anderson baseball team opens the season on Monday, March 19 at Franklin County. First pitch is at p.m.

  • Bearcat football waiting out...

    Anderson County High School football is hoping for some shifting in the recently released realignment, set to take effect in the 2019 season.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association Board of Control’s original classification, back in January, listed Anderson as the smallest school in Class 5A, but schools were given an option of “playing up” before the redistricting process began.

    With East Jessamine, Highlands and Louisville Western electing to play up into Class 5A, Anderson was able to become a Class 4A school.

  • Pittman, Penny named to honor...

    Two Anderson County High School boys’ basketball players were named to the Eighth Region All-Tournament team following last Tuesday’s championship game.

    Dylan Pittman and Cobe Penny were named to the honor team, selected by the region’s coaches.

    Oldham County defeated South Oldham, 71-56, in the final.

  • Anderson County Church League...
  • South Oldham avalanche buries...

    NEW CASTLE -- The outside temperature was in the 40s Monday night, but there was little doubt that Anderson County hit a snowball.

    A major snowball.

    Make that an avalanche.

    South Oldham created an avalanche for the Bearcats in the semifinal round of the boys’ Eighth Region basketball tournament at Henry County High School. The Dragons burned Anderson from three-point land, hitting 14-of-28 long balls on the way to a 95-53 win.

  • Christian Academy students skate...

    While most of Kentucky is fixated on March Madness, a pair of students at Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg have been chilling.
