  • Lady Bearcats pound Franklin in...

    Anderson County showed how a softball team should pull out of a bit of a slump last Wednesday night.

    The Lady Bearcats pounded host Franklin County for seven runs in the fourth inning to post a 7-2 win. Anderson became the first Eighth Region team to reach 20 wins this year and the Lady Bearcats avenged an earlier 2-1 loss to Franklin in the Capital City Classic.

    This time, the Lady Bearcats, ranked 18th in the state, left no doubt this time with the fourth-inning uprising that doomed the 16th-ranked Flyers.

    LEXINGTON – Three Anderson County High School performers qualified for the state Class 3A state track and field meet in the Region 6 competition, held Saturday at a rain-soaked Henry Clay High School.

  • TENNIS: Oldham star uses AP to...

    FRANKFORT – There could not have been a more fitting reason for a tennis match to be delayed.

    Anderson County's Hannah Wampler had to wait until after 7 p.m. – more than two hours after all other quarterfinal matches started – to get things underway against Oldham County's Aspen Jarrett last Tuesday. Jarrett was scheduled to take an Advanced Placement test and could not make it to Western Hills High School by normal 4:30 start.

  • Even without McKee and Cann,...

    The reality will probably hit Tony Kays sometime around October 15.

    That's when high school basketball teams can drop the “informal” and “conditioning” tags from their gatherings and get to work on the 2014-15 season.

  • Russell named all conference

    Anderson County resident Jacob Russell has been honored as part of the All Mid-South Conference baseball team as a second team selection by the conference coaches.

    In his first year at Campbellsville University after transferring from the University of Kentucky, Russell has been a major part of the Tiger attack all season.

    Through Saturday's games, Russell led Campbellsville with three home runs and 33 RBIs. He ended the regular season with a 12-game hitting streak, which he extended in the first round of the MSC Tournament against Shawnee State.

  • COLUMN: Today's kids teach...

    We probably shouldn't have been as shocked as we were over the words of Donald Sterling.

    If you don't know what the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers said, you simply haven't been paying attention. Ever since TMZ released a tape recording that contained incredibly racist remarks later confirmed to be Sterling's, the story has dominated everything from Good Morning, America to SportsCenter.

  • Lady Bearcats defeat East...

    Anderson County erupted for three runs in the eighth inning to post a 5-2 win at East Jessamine last Tuesday night.

  • Another award for McKee

    The Anderson County High School senior, who had already been named to every all-state team imaginable, picked up another award last Tuesday when she was named the Fox 56 Player of the Year.

    McKee was chosen over Lafayette's Dee Givens and Dunbar's Brooke Todd for the honor.
