  • Honoring local first responders
  • Anderson golfers second at Danville

    The Anderson County boys’ high school golf team showed the promise of a team with the talent to make a return trip to the state tournament last week. Unfortunately for the Bearcats, they also showed the inconsistency that comes from having a young team.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Anderson recovers to whip Shelby, takes lead in district race

    Anderson County took a major step toward the top seed in the 30th District Volleyball Tournament last week when the Lady Bearcats defeated Shelby County 3-1 last Monday in Shelbyville.

    The Lady Bearcats overcame a sluggish first set to win 19-25, 25-19, 25-17 and 25-8.

    Anderson coach Bob Hardin said the Lady Bearcats opened things up in the second set with kills from Rachel Swartz and Baylee McKenzie fueling the run.

  • New teal-only season gives waterfowlers additional opportunity

    Kentucky waterfowl hunters now have additional days in September to pursue teal.

    A teal-only season that is new for 2014 runs from Sept. 22-25. A combined wood duck and teal season opens Sept. 17 and closes Sept. 21.

    Hunters may harvest up to six teal a day during the experimental teal-only season.

  • Turnovers doom Bearcat bid to become elite

    The degree of separation between the very good and the elite is rarely large. The margin for error among the very good who are chasing those elite is even smaller.

    Anderson County, one of those in the realm of very good, found that out Friday when it was trying to take down Boyle County, a program that has been in the highest echelon of Kentucky high school football for the last 15 years.

    The Bearcats turned the ball over five times, all via interceptions, as Boyle pulled away to a 48-26 win that was much closer than the score would indicate.

  • Records can be deceptive

    It would be easy to look at Mercer County’s 1-3 record and conclude that Anderson County a shoo-in to get a win in high school football action Friday night.

    Such thinking would be foolish. The Titans will present a major challenge to the Bearcats in a renewal of a rivalry that dates to 1963.

    “Mercer, like us, has played a very tough non-district schedule,” Anderson coach Mark Peach says. “They are a very good football team.”

  • Cross country runners rewrite personal records

    From staff reports

    Several Anderson County High School cross country runners set personal records in a large field at the Bluegrass Invitational at Lexington’s Masterson Station Park on Saturday.

    Blake Borwig’s 19:26 time over the 5k course was his best ever even though he had just returned to action after being off for a week with an illness, according to Anderson boys’ coach Scott Buser. Borwig led all Anderson finishers.

    Abram Gettlefinger was eight seconds behind Borwig but set a personal record as well, according to Buser.
