  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats to open season vs. speedy Bryan Station

    Carrying a football in Friday's season opener will be tough enough, but Anderson County is glad it is going that route against Bryan Station instead of racing with a baton.

    “They are like a team of Usain Bolts,” Anderson coach Mark Peach laughed when describing the Defenders. “If it were the 4x100-meter relay, we wouldn't have a chance, but we are playing football.”

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Young Lady Bearcats looking for soccer surprises

    When it comes to high school soccer, the Anderson County girls are hoping their surprises start changing during this season.

    Anderson, which was scheduled to open the season Monday night at Harrison County, already knew it would have to replace seven seniors, six of whom started during last season's run to the 13th Region tournament. What the Lady Bearcats were not banking on was having to replace two more returnees.

  • First district champs finally getting their due

    This time, they can only hope the public address system is working.

    “I remember we got together once before. We went on the field and the speakers quit working just as we got out there,” laughs Tony Kays, who was a sophomore defensive back on the 1972 Anderson County High School football team.

    In some ways, that glitch might have been fitting. Forty years ago, those Bearcats accomplished something no Anderson team had ever done before and did not duplicate for 35 more seasons when they won a district championship.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Anderson surrenders big lead in tie-breaker, falls to Shelby

    Shelby County's volleyball win at Anderson County Monday night really was as close as the final two-point margin.

    But the perspective on what happened in the tie-breaker was much wider.

    Trailing 6-1 with Anderson seeming to have everything going its way in the decisive game, Shelby coach Felicia Pace called time to give her team a very simple reminder.

    “I told them we have to have some backbone,” Pace said. “We were not playing with it.”

  • GOLF: Bearcat golfers fall to Woodford

    The Anderson County boys' golf team fell to Woodford County, 155-158, last Wednesday at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.

    The match came down the the final few holes, according to Anderson coach Jim Beward. “We played better than Monday's tournament (at Shelby County), but it was just not good enough.

    Tyler Harrod and Lee Robinson both shot 38 for Anderson while Zachary Toles turned in a 40 in his first varsity match. Gabe McMichael came in at 42 while Josh Brown shot a 43. Brown's score was dropped in the final tally.

  • BOYS' SOCCER: New Bearcat soccer coach confident, enjoying team

    There is always uncertainty when change is involved. The Anderson County boys' soccer program is no exception.

    Mike Brody, who had been guiding Louisville Central for the last five years, has taken over the reins of the Bearcat program after long-time coach Brett Morris stepped down. Morris had led Anderson to six consecutive winning seasons, including an 11-10 mark last year.

    Brody, a paraprofessional, steps into a program that has some good talent but will be meshing new players into the rotation while learning a new system.
