  • Halloween supper doesn’t have to be spooky

    Halloween is just four days away and no costumes have been bought or made for my 5-year-old. I guess I know what I’ll be doing this weekend. There is an “adult Halloween” happening on Main Street on Friday, maybe I’ll go as a chef since I haven’t made a costume for myself yet either. It sounds like a lot of fun and I hope to see some familiar faces, no clowns.

  • Eagles turn inches into 99 yards and title

    Inches were all that were separating Anderson County from tying Madison Southern Friday night as the teams battled for the Class 5A, District 6 high school football championship.

    The Bearcats had driven inside Madison Southern’s one-yard line with just under seven minutes to play. They had one more chance on fourth-and-goal.

  • No one should fear for safety while playing games

    I thought I had seen or heard of everything in more than three decades of writing about high school sports.

    I’d seen things I wish I hadn’t such as a parent and coach in each other’s face after a game. I’d seen coach and player so animated after a game that, even though the incident did not involve a team I was covering at the time, I pulled out my camera in case something did explode.

    Thankfully, it didn’t.

  • Marching Bearcats ‘in the mix’ for state title

    The day the Anderson County High School marching band has been pointing to throughout the fall is almost here.

    The Marching Bearcats will be performing in the state Class AAAA semifinal round at South Oldham High School Saturday, Oct. 29, at 2:30 p.m. If Anderson is one of the top four bands in the semifinal round, it will move on to the state finals Saturday night. The time of the evening performance will be announced Saturday.

  • Tears real as Bearcats fall to eventual region champs

    SHELBYVILLE -- The tears were real. They were more profuse than those shed around Anderson County boys’ soccer had been in recent years.

    They were in keeping with the almost-universal athletic truism that the hurt runs deeper when the stakes are higher. And make no mistake, the stakes were high for the Bearcats last Tuesday.

    And the Bearcats believed they were capable of pulling off the unexpected in the Eighth Region semifinal round at Collins High School.

  • South Oldham ends Lady Bearcat run in regional semis

    South Oldham showed why it has long been one of the programs by which all other Kentucky girls’ high school soccer teams are measured when the Lady Dragons ousted Anderson County in the Eighth Region Tournament semifinal round last Tuesday at the Walton-Verona Sports Complex.

    While the final score read South Oldham 5, Anderson County 0, things were decided in the first 15 minutes when the Lady Dragons scored a pair of quick goals and never looked back.

    South Oldham eventually fell in the regional final, losing to Simon Kenton, 2-1.

  • Shelby ousts Lady Cats in district opener

    Visiting Shelby County made the plays at the end of each set to defeat Anderson County in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament Monday night.

    Shelby made the plays in the final points of each set to claim a 25-23, 25-20, 25-23 win over a depleted Lady Bearcat team. In the days leading up to the tournament, Anderson’s seniors left the team, forcing the Lady Bearcats to put more of a load on younger players.

    Anderson finished the season at 11-19.
