  • Lady Bearcats pound Collins for...

    Anderson County exploded for four runs in both the third and fourth innings on the way to an 11-1 win over host Collins in the 30th District softball tournament championship game. The game was called after the fifth inning because of the “mercy rule.”

  • Collins erupts to defeat...

    Collins took advantage of some crucial Anderson County defensive mistakes, then rode a late rally to defeat the Bearcats, 7-3, for the 30th District baseball championship Tuesday night at Barnes Memorial Field.

    Anderson had already committed four errors when the Bearcats bobbled a tailor-made double play ball that would have ended the Collins sixth. Given a reprieve, the Titans took advantage with E.J. Burk and Zac Wiley belting back-to-back home runs to highlight a five-run uprising.

  • Seven Anderson athletes will...

    Seven individuals and one relay team from the Anderson County High School track and field team will be competing in the Kentucky High School Athletic Association state Class 3A meet, set for Saturday, May 24, at the University of Kentucky.

    The meet is scheduled to get underway at 4:30 p.m.

    Anderson competitors will be participating in 10 different individual events along with the boys' 4x400-meter relay team.

  • Bearcats get to regional...

    The mission for Anderson County High School baseball was simple: Get There.

    Just “get there” to the Eighth Region Tournament and try to do some damage.

    The Bearcats got there Monday night with a wild 10-6 win over arch-rival Shelby County in the 30th District Tournament semifinals at Anderson's Barnes Memorial Field. The Bearcats were to have played Collins, ranked No. 5 in last week's statewide poll, in the district final Tuesday night after press deadlines.

  • Thomas More inks Eliadis

    Anderson County High School senior Brandon Eliadis signs a national letter-of-intent to play baseball at Thomas More College, an NCAA Division III institution located in Crestview Hills, Kentucky.

  • Lady Bearcats celebrate season

    The Anderson County High School girls' basketball program celebrated the 2013-14 season with the annual team awards banquet, held May 8 at Eagle Lake Convention Center.

    The Lady Bearcats finished the season with a 28-5 record, taking their second consecutive Eighth Region championship. Anderson finally lost to Elizabethtown in the quarterfinals of the state tournament.

  • Eighth Region Softball...

    The Eighth Region Softball Tournament is set to get underway Monday, May 26, at Gallatin County High School, located just off U.S. Highway 42 in Warsaw.

    The four first-round games are tentatively set to be played on Monday, with the semi-finals set for Tuesday, May 27. The championship game would be played on May 28, but the final decision of the tournament schedule will be left up to the participating teams in the tournament meeting, set for Saturday, according to Gallatin County athletic director Jon Jones.

  • Lady Bearcats send message, rout...

    Anderson County simply wanted to make a statement last Tuesday.

    Instead, the Lady Bearcats shouted their intentions of playing in the state high school softball tournament in two weeks.

    Anderson pitcher Mia Aldridge fired her second consecutive no-hitter and the Lady Bearcats erupted for 10 runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to pound visiting Carroll County, 11-0, in a game called in the middle of the fifth due to the “mercy rule.”

  • The numbers don't lie

    When Kristen Phillips was running the show for the Anderson County girls' basketball team, she became known as one of the best high school point guards in central Kentucky.

    Phillips was able to thread a needle with her laser-like passing precision.

    Now married and a teacher in the Anderson County school system, Kristen Shouse can still locate the right target. This time, that mark was not a moving teammate, but a reflective comment about a coach who is retiring.

    Her coach.
