  • COLUMN: Bearcats living up to pre-season expectations

    We're four games into Anderson County's 2013 football season.

    There's still a lot of football to be played – the Bearcats are hoping for 11 more games – but that is enough of a sample to see just how good Anderson really is and to if the pre-season hype was justified.

    Even though there have been some expected rough spots and a few stretches where the Bearcats appeared to relax or not concentrate as a championship team should, it says here that the headline on the front of our pre-season football issue four weeks ago was warranted.

  • GOLF: GOLDEN GREENS

    There were times when it seemed like Anderson County's quest for a golf championship was headed toward a sand trap or water hazard.

    The Bearcats appeared to be in trouble for much of their match with Franklin County last Wednesday, but when the scorecards were turned in, Anderson had won the North Division of the Central Kentucky Bluegrass Conference.

    Despite being in some major predicaments throughout the day, the Bearcats earned a 141-145 victory that was not sealed until the final flight played the final hole.

    The mission was simple.

    The Bearcats split four matches last week, giving some hope for a strong push as the season heads into the final weeks.
