  • COLUMN: Bearcats' district opener is no joking matter

    I never knew Mark Peach was such a comedian.


    A singer? Sure.  Many people  throughout south-central Kentucky have heard the Anderson County football coach belt out a few tunes in churches.


    And guys who have played football for Peach at Hancock County, Anderson County and two stops in between have heard Peach sing too.


    The usual critique? “He’s good.”

  • Tuesday morning sports update

    Monday was kind of a slow day in Anderson County sports, but the Anderson County High School volleyball team picked up a huge district win over Henry County Monday night. Anderson won 25-20, 25-23 to take a big step toward a good seed in the 30th District Tournament next month.

    Anderson had also beaten Henry in a non-district matchup at the Woodford County Invitational over the weekend, but Henry had swept the Lady Bearcats earlier in the year.

  • Defense never rests as Bearcats handle Mercer

    Even with the economy in shambles, Anderson County football coach Mark Peach is looking for a little extra money for a member of his staff.


    “We need to increase Coach (Duane) Hammons’ pay,” Peach quipped about his defensive coordinator. His Bearcats had just beaten long-time rival Mercer County, 28-6, Friday night.


    The Bearcats held Mercer without an offensive touchdown. Anderson stopped Mercer twice inside the two-yard line and limited the Titans to 161 yards offensively, 78 of which came on two plays.

  • Friday sports update: Big night for Anderson teams

    Friday sports update

    Anderson County had a big day in high school sports on Thursday.

    The Bearcat boys’ soccer team exploded in the opening minutes of the second half to roll past district rival Frankfort, 4-1, on the Anderson pitch. Leading 1-0 after a first half that saw the Bearcats miss out on some big opportunities, Anderson’s David Simmons and Josh Doolin both scored within a five-minute span just after halftime to give Anderson a commanding 3-0 lead.

    SPORTS BLOG: Could the Bearcats be ripe for an upset?

    I never thought I would see the day when I wondered if Anderson County was really ready for its annual football grudge match with Mercer County.

    Not so much about the Bearcats themselves, since I have not been around the team as it has prepared for Friday's game at Warford Stadium. That first game whipping by Bryan Station should have been enough to remind the Bearcats that any team they play is capable of sending them home with an “L.”
