  • Mason named to Leach All-...

    Anderson County High School senior James Mason was honored Thursday night as a member of the TomLeachKy.com All-Resilient Team of Kentucky student-athletes.

    The team, which was also sponsored by the Kentucky National Guard, the Kentucky High School Athletic Directors Association and Star Communications, was honored in a ceremony at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium in Louisville.

  • Great spring fishing available...

    Spring has finally arrived and with it comes turkey season and some of the best fishing of the year. The air has warmed now and the lake waters of Kentucky are well on their way to those 60 degree temperatures that fire up the largemouth bass and crappie spawns.

  • Moore's break for home...

    SHELBYVILLE – If it works, you are a genius. If not, well, let's just say the fan commentary would not be kind.

    Shelby County baseball coach Bart Roettger was a genius last Thursday. Well, sort of.

    Roettger's Rockets scored twice in the bottom of the seventh inning to defeat Anderson County in a 30th District game that most likely will be repeated in tournament play next month. It was how Shelby did it that made Roettger look like a riverboat gambler making a desperate move.

    Again, sort of.

  • Bearcats conclude spring...

    No score was kept, but Anderson County football coach Mark Peach believes the Bearcats were winners in the spring football game, held last Thursday at Warford Stadium.

    “I told the guys I can't remember being more tickled in 20 years of coaching just as far as spring and what we were able to accomplish,” Peach said.

  • Bearcats begin diamond...

    Anderson County varsity baseball took a major step forward over the weekend.

    The Bearcats won three of four contests in an impressive fashion and the only loss came when Louisville Eastern, ranked sixth in the state by Prep Baseball Report, took a 1-0 decision in the bottom of the seventh inning.

    Thursday, the Bearcats routed visiting Owen County, 10-0, in a 6-inning mercy-rule game at Barnes Memorial Field.

  • Bearcat road to state final...

    It is never an easy path to get to a state championship game, but Anderson County football might have it even tougher if a proposed realignment is adopted.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association released a new football alignment proposal during the Board of Control meeting last Tuesday. The alignment, if adopted, would be in effect for the 2015-2018 seasons.

  • Cann, McKee named to Kentucky...

    Anderson County High School girls' basketball players Eriel McKee and Makenzie Cann have been named to the Kentucky All-Star team that will play Indiana in a two-game series this summer.

    The Kentucky roster was announced last Thursday. Cann and McKee joined 10 other players from around the state on the team. They are the first girls from Anderson County to be named to the Kentucky All-Stars since the girls' game began in 1976.

  • Christian Academy student vaults...

    If determination was part of the gymnastics rotation, Briana Charles might ring up a 20.0.

    On a 10-point scoring scale.

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg freshman decided nothing was going to stop her from competing at the state gymnastics meet last month. She was rewarded with a state championship in the vault in the Training Level 6 competition.

  • Lady Cats can be 'scary...

    Anyone who remotely follows high school softball knew Anderson County could be good – make that very good – this year.

    The Lady Bearcats returned virtually the entire cast from a team that went 24-10 and pushed Oldham County to the limit in Eighth Region semi-final round in 2013. That 4-2 decision was the only time Oldham, a team that won two games at last year's state tournament, was even threatened in its march to the Eighth Region championship.
