    Official fall practice for Anderson County High School sports can begin on Tuesday, July 15. While most teams have been conducting off-season conditioning workouts, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association does not allow “organized practices” prior to July 15.

  • Get your news to The News

    If you have a sports news announcement, score or picture, there is no better place to get the word out than The Anderson News.

    With the many youth baseball and softball tournaments going on along with the start of scholastic fall sports, it is impossible for The News' one-man sports department to cover everything.

    However, we still welcome any local sports information.
