  • 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.

  • Anderson athletes sign with area...

    Anderson County High School athletes recently made their college choices known.

  • Moore's best, red-hot Vest...

    It was one of those nights when Moore was, well, more for Anderson County.

    And Moore definitely meant less for Collins.

    Anderson sophomore Ally Moore turned in one of the finest pitching performances of her career, limiting a good-hitting Collins team to four hits while striking out eight and walking none as the Lady Bearcats rolled to a 5-0 win in a 30th District game last Wednesday.

  • Anderson duo named first team...

    Anderson County High School basketball players Makenzie Cann and Eriel McKee continue to haul in the awards.

    The Lady Bearcat seniors have been named to the Lexington Herald-Leader all-state first team, which was announced in Sunday's editions of that newspaper.

    The voting was taken from the state's coaches.

    Cann, a repeat selection to the first team, was third in the voting behind LaRue County senior Ivy Brown, the Player of the Year, and Elizabethtown sophomore Erin Boley.

  • It's fun again for Bearcats...

    Baseball is supposed to be a fun game.

    And, for a real competitor, winning is usually much more fun than ending up on the short end of the score. Such was the case for the Anderson County baseball team during last Friday's 8-0 win over 30th District rival Spencer County.

    Anderson erupted for six runs in the bottom of the sixth to break open a tight game and put to rest a brief two-game losing skid that saw the Bearcats struggle in every area but the pitching mound.

  • Scoreboard woes frustrate...

    If some fans could issue a grade on the baseball scoreboard at Anderson County High School, chances are an “F” would be forthcoming.

    It could be an “F” for failure.

    Or it could be an “F” for frustration.

  • Lady Bearcats looking like...

    Anderson County softball is finally living up to its lofty pre-season expectations.

    Not that anything major was ever wrong with the Lady Bearcats, but after a week that saw them win seven of eight games by a combined 62-12 score, Anderson is showing signs it has designs not only on an Eighth Region championship but also making noise at the state tournament if the Lady Bearcats get there.

  • Anderson track team looks to...

    Anderson County track and field might have had its biggest day in years as the Bearcats and Lady Bearcats both posted wins at the Central Hardin Invitational Friday night.

    “The kids, as well as the coaches, were extremely proud of the finish for both teams,” said Anderson coach Keith Brown. “Thanks to a lot of things falling into place, we were able to come out on top. It was quite a scene to see all the parents who would not leave until we got those trophies.

  • Anderson lacrosse second in own...

    The Anderson County boys' lacrosse team placed second in the teams inaugural invitational tournament Saturday.

    Anderson defeated Collins, 10-9 in the first game of the tourney, but fell to Woodford County in the championship match.

    Collins recovered to beat E-town in the consolation game.

    Anderson got big tournaments from Dillon Harrod, who scored nine goals over the two games, and goalie Matt Moses, who recorded 31 saves in the two-game set.
