  • Lady Cats blue in Oldham soccer tourney

    The Anderrson County girls’ soccer team had a tough start to the season, dropping all three matches in last week’s Bluegrass Cup, held at Oldham County High School.

    The Lady Bearcats dropped a 6-5 decision to regional rival Oldham County in the seventh-place match Saturday.

    The contest was tied 5-5 at the end of regulation. Under tournament rules, there was no overtime, but the winner decided by a shootout. Oldham won the shootout, 5-4.

    Anderson’s Allie Johnson scored twice with Tate Thompson and Taylor Harley scoring.

  • Middle school football opens season

    The Anderson County Middle School football team was scheduled to open its football season Tuesday night, traveling to Boyle County after press time. The Mustangs return to action next Tuesday, Aug. 25, hosting Henry County. Kickoff is 6 p.m. at the Anderson County High School field.

  • Volley Cats drop opener, scale mountain trip

    Summer vacation might have ended too soon for the Anderson County High School volleyball team.

    The Lady Bearcats did not seem ready, according to head coach Bob Hardin, suffering a 3-1 loss at West Jessamine last Tuesday.

    The hosts took a 25-17 win in the first game. Anderson recovered to score a 25-20 win in the second game but West rallied to win games three and four to take the match.

    “Their (blockers) gave us some trouble,” Hardin said. “I feel we will bounce back.”

  • Athletic Clark up next for Bearcats

    To some, it might appear that Anderson County’s trip to George Rogers Clark would appear to be like driving along Interstate 64 on cruise control.

    The Bearcats have beaten Clart by a combined 92-27 over the last two years, but Anderson coach Mark Peach believes those totals are very deceiving.

    “They will be a challenge. I have already had a peek at them,” Peach said. “They are real solid up front and they have Israel back.”

  • Davis undergoes surgery after injury

    Anderson County lineman Logan Davis was carried off the field with 6:23 to go in the first quarter of Friday’s football game with South Oldham at Warford Stadium.

    Davis, a senior, went down when he was providing protection on a pass play. Ambulance personnel were immediately called to midfield.

    Davis was taken to Frankfort Regional Medical Center, where he underwent surgery Saturday morning.

  • Bearcats smell the coffee, roll past South Oldham in opener

    Everyone has had days like Anderson County was having at Warford Stadium Friday night.

    “Some mornings, you wake up – we have all been there – and everything falls into place,” said Bearcat football coach Mark Peach. “You are working hard and say, 'This is a great day!' and have smile on your face.”

    Then there are days like the Bearcats were, ahem, enjoying during the lid-lifter for the 2015 football season.
