  • Credit Bearcat defense for setting tone against Scott

    Third and long notes …

    You can’t say Anderson County put on a clinic Friday night but the Bearcats looked mighty good in whipping a mighty good Scott team in the first round of the state football playoffs.

    Anderson put a convincing win up on a team that has quietly been raising its level of play over the last two years.


    Birds with a single wing aren’t supposed to be able to fly. Anderson County made sure of that Friday night.

    The Bearcats limited Scott’s running game to 197 yards, well below its average and forced three Eagle turnovers on the way to a 32-13 win in the first round of the KHSAA Class 5A playoffs before a sparse crowd at Warford Stadium.

    Anderson’s Brayden Russell garnered the Bearcats’ offensive honors, scoring three touchdowns, matching his career-best. He hauled in four passes for 105 yards and ran for 55 more.

  • Carmichael leaves team, returns

    Anderson County starting quarterback Zachary Carmichael left the team over the weekend, but returned Monday night, The Anderson News has confirmed.

    His father, Steve Carmichael, said in a text message Monday morning that his son was “not planning on being a member of the team beginning today.”

    Monday night, however, Steve Carmichael said in another text, “The Bearcat QB will be back on the practice field tomorrow with his teammates.”

  • Late run fuels high expectations

    No one ever said getting to the highest level is easy and Anderson County girls’ soccer is getting to be the expert.

    The Lady Bearcats saw their season come to an end back on Oct. 23 when South Oldham defeated them, 3-1, in the Eighth Region championship match.

  • Russell shatters Tiger record book, repeats as Player of Week

    Russell, playing his final regular season game at Campbellsville, set school records for most passes attempted in a game, most single-season completions (202) and single-season passing yards (2,642) according to a news release.
