  • Net Cats in action
  • From Eagles to Bearcats, always...

    Greg Boblitt still remembers, and uses, some of the things Glen Drury taught him as when he was playing basketball for old Western High School.

    “Man, that was a long time ago,” says Boblitt, now a deputy in the Anderson County Sheriff’s office. “Just be responsible for what you do. Look people in the eye when you talk to them. Work hard and never quit.”

  • Another face on the dream

    There’s another face on the dream now.

    Unless you have been totally sealed from society over the last few days, you know that Anderson County native Logan Woodside was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the seventh round of the NFL Draft on Saturday.

  • Collins turns Bearcat errors...

    SHELBYVILLE -- Just when it looked like Anderson County was turning the corner on the 2018 baseball season, the Bearcats’ defense wrecked Monday night.

    Seven errors, as scored by The Anderson News, allowed Collins to score six unearned runs in an 8-6 win over the Bearcats in a 30th District game at the Titans’ home park. Collins improved to 13-10 on the season and 3-2 in district play. Anderson, which had won two of its last three and was showing signs of coming around just in time for the post-season, fell to 3-16, 0-3.

  • Riley leads Cumberlands to 7th...

    Anderson County native Kaitlyn Riley captured her second consecutive Mid-South Conference individual women’s golf championship in leading the University of the Cumberlands to its seventh consecutive MSC championship.

    Riley shot a one-over 73 in the third round of the championships, held at Bowling Green Country Club last Monday through Wednesday. Riley led the Lady Patriots as they expanded a four-stroke lead entering the final round to a 28-stroke final margin over Cumberland University of Tennessee.

  • Bearcat spring game set

    The Anderson County High School football team will be conducting the annual spring game today, Wednesday, May 2, at 4 p.m. on Bob Ware Field.

    The spring game is the culmination of spring practice sessions. Kentucky High School Athletic Association rules allow 10 practices inside a span of 15 school days. The spring game was originally scheduled for last Friday but rains and wet grounds played havoc with the Bearcats’ schedule. Anderson has until Friday, May 4 to complete spring practice.

  • Top teams thump Lady Cats

    Anderson County’s resilience will be tested after a week of taking on some of Kentucky’s best high school programs.

    The Lady Bearcats took three resounding losses to a trio of ranked teams as they entered the final month of the regular season. Anderson’s record stood at 6-8 after the weekend.

  • Anderson tracksters deserve much...

    When you’ve been pushing out sports columns and news stories since Joe Hall was on the end of the Kentucky Wildcats’ bench, you’ve just about seen it all somewhere along the way.

    You even remember when the Cincinnati Reds were relevant and actually won baseball games. (I actually had a string of attending 17 straight games and 27 of 30 in Cincinnati where the Reds won. It’s been a while, obviously.)

  • Young track Cats building for...

    At Anderson County, almost everything is relative when measuring the success of the high school track and field program.

    On the one hand, the Track Cats face what has become an almost annual problem with numbers, or more spefically the lack of numbers, in a sport where high numbers of participation have a link to more success. “We have 27 kids total,” says Anderson coach Richard Shearer, who is in his first season at the helm.

  • Titans power to district win

    If the electric company ever experiences a power surge like the one on the Anderson County High School softball field last Wednesday, there would undoubtedly be a major blackout in the area.

    Collins earned a 15-10 win over Anderson on a day when the teams combined for 31 hits, including 11 -- ELEVEN -- home runs and nine doubles.
