    It’s been a while since I’ve been competitive in a ‘Battle with a Bearcat,’ but in my most recent competition, I gave my opponent a little run for her money.

    My opponent for my latest Battle with a Bearcat was Payton Baum, a sophomore multi-sport athlete at Anderson County. You can watch Baum compete on the basketball court and the softball field for the Lady Bearcats, and our challenge took place on the field.

  • Bearcats get new uniforms

    Look good, feel good, play good.

    That’s a mantra that’s commonly used in sports, and that’s something that the Bearcats will believe in this season with their new uniforms.

    The wardrobe now consists of a red-colored home jersey with ‘Bearcats’ written across the chest, a white-colored road jersey with ‘Anderson’ written across the top and a gray-colored alternate uniform with ‘Bearcats’ written across the chest.

  • Battles with Bearcats: Gary...

    The theme for most of the Bearcat Battles this summer is trying sports I have little to no experience in, and this week’s installment definitely follows that theme.

    My competitor for this week’s ‘Battles with Bearcats’ is Gary McInturf. McInturf is so far my most unique competitor because he is not an Anderson County student, nor did he even go to school in Anderson County.
