  • Anderson bracing for addition of...

    Since entering the 30th District in 2012, Anderson County has seen little resistance from its opponents and won six of the last seven district titles, including the previous five straight.

    During that span, the Lady Bearcats have only lost three regular season district games, and have posted five separate perfect regular season district records.

  • Bearcats more prepared under...

    It may be hard to notice from the sidelines, but year two of the Anderson County boys’ soccer team under head coach Jeff Pritchett is completely different than the year one version.

    There are a number of reasons why the two teams are different, which is the main thing Pritchett learned from his first season of coaching the Bearcats.

    “Kids grow, and you got to be willing to adjust to the kids that you have,” Pritchett said. “I’m not a coach that comes in and does the exact same thing every year with the same team.”

  • Lady Bearcats start season with...

    DANVILLE – The Anderson County girls’ golf team started its season off on a good note, as they won the Central Kentucky Golf Classic this past Monday by 47 strokes.

    Anderson’s team score of 380 was 47 strokes better than second place finisher Boyle County and 170 strokes better than third place finisher Mercer County.

    Those three teams were the only teams in the field, but head coach Robert Hanks is still proud of the way his team performed.

    BEREA - The Lady Mustang basketball team kicked off its season with an 8th grade tournament in Berea this past weekend, in which the team went 3-2 over a stretch of two days.

    The three wins were mostly by considerable amounts, as Anderson beat Powell by 37 and Jackson by 20 on the first day, followed by beating Knox by one on the second day.

    Some of Anderson County’s archers had a busy weekend in Frankfort at the 2019 Kentucky State ASA Championship this past weekend, as three Bearcat archers took home first place medals in their respective divisions.

    Ashley Thomas, Jacob Newby and Michelle Newby all placed first in their respective divisions as individuals while Madalynn Puryear placed fourth in the female middle school fixed pins class.

  • Anderson golf set to tee-off...

  • Battles with Bearcats: Payton...

    It’s been a while since I’ve been competitive in a ‘Battle with a Bearcat,’ but in my most recent competition, I gave my opponent a little run for her money.

    My opponent for my latest Battle with a Bearcat was Payton Baum, a sophomore multi-sport athlete at Anderson County. You can watch Baum compete on the basketball court and the softball field for the Lady Bearcats, and our challenge took place on the field.

    The Lawrenceburg Disc Golf Association hosted the Chainferno Tournament this past Saturday at the Anderson County Community Park, and Colin Wise came away with the win with a score of 111 (15 under par).
