  • COLUMN: Making a statement

    The cars have been converging on Anderson County High School again for a week now.

    Walking through a few stores in the last few days, I have seen Bearcat paraphernalia in much larger quantities than in recent years. I've seen everything from sweat pants to back packs. It might be a reaction to an unbeaten regular football season, two regional championship teams, a regional runner-up and several highly ranked teams.

  • Football, softball registration...

    Registrations for Anderson County Parks and Recreation youth football and softball will be held Saturday, Aug. 2, and Saturday, Aug. 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Parks and Recreation Department office in the Stratton Building at 1026 County Park Road.

    Football divisions will be offered for grades 5-6 and grades 3-4. A non-contact division for second-graders also will be offered. Registration costs $60 for players in grades 3-6, $40 for second graders.

  • Mudcats split four games

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats split four games last week as the returned to action following the mandatory dead period for high school athletic teams.

    The Mudcats, a summer baseball team made up of players from the Anderson County program, swept a double-header from Bourbon County but lost to the Bluegrass Stars and Scott County last week.

  • COLUMN: Transfer woes a result...

    I don't believe I have seen many things associated with high school sports more bizarre than the case of Dakotah Euton.

  • Batcats take third at state...

    The Central Kentucky Batcats 12-and-under girls' fast pitch softball team brought home the third place trophy from the Kentucky state fast pitch tournament, sanctioned by the National Softball Association, on July 6.

    The tournament was held at Fisher Park in Owensboro. The Batcats' 12-and-under team has played in six tournaments this summer, taking first place in the Swinging into May tourney at Nicholasville, second in the Memorial Madness tournament in Versailles and the LIT tournament in Shelbyville.

  • Anderson disc golfers lead UK to...

    Josh Winfrey might have had a country club taste, but grew up with a putt-putt budget.

    Until he discovered disc golf, that is.

    "I always watched golf on TV, but I couldn't afford to play," said Winfrey, an Anderson County resident who will be starting his junior year at the University of Kentucky next month. "I heard about disc golf my senior year in high school.

    Winfrey, who had played basketball at Anderson County, got on a course in Lexington and was hooked.

  • NSA softball tourney planned for...

    The National Softball Association Appreciation Classic will be held Friday, July 18 through Sunday, July 20 at Anderson County Community Park.

    Fast pitch softball teams of all ages will be competing in the tournament, which drew teams from Kentucky and several surrounding states last year.

    Locally, the Central Kentucky Batcats will be entering teams in the 10-and-under, 12-u, 14-u and 18-u divisions.

  • What will high fuel prices mean...

    Anderson went on to an undefeated season.

    Spring forward to last fall. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, Anderson County football traveled to Mitchell, Ind. While Mitchell was certainly not Pikeville, that day, Anderson showed some resilience that said the Bearcats might just have what it takes to record the second undefeated season in school history.

    With gas and diesel fuel prices hovering at or above $4 a gallon, such future trips might be very rare or even a thing of the past.

  • Winchester ends local Little...

    HARRODSBURG - Anderson County managed just 2 hits off Winchester American pitching as the local all-star team's quest for a Little League district championship ended Thursday night at Anderson-Dean Park in Harrodsburg.

    Winchester right-hander Brent Stoneking threw five no-hit innings, striking out 11, as his team rolled to an 8-1 victory in the first elimination round of the tournament.

    Anderson finally scored in the bottom of the sixth, getting a pair of hits and a run off reliever Ryan Barnett.

  • 51 days 'Til opening kickoff

    It has been almost eight months since that night when Anderson County saw what looked like an insurmountable lead disappear in the final four minutes of the state football playoffs.

    It surely was not the way an undefeated season was supposed to end, but the first 11 games and the bitter playoff loss to Oldham County have served to motivate Anderson to achieve even more in 2008.

    That task will be tougher than it appears.
