  • FOOTBALL: No contest as Bearcats hand Montgomery first loss

    MOUNT STERLING – Granville Hayes had the perfect analysis of Anderson County's 27-8 win at Montgomery County Friday night.

    “Have a feeling imma be taking an ice bath in the morning,” he said on his Twitter account not long after the Bearcats had won their first district match-up of the season.

    Anyone who was in attendance at Cunningham Field knows why. Hayes ran for 126 yards, a career-high, and scored a touchdown. He caught 10 passes, also a career-best, for 104 yards and a score.

    After dropping a 2-0 decision at Somerset on Saturday, the Bearcats stood at 8-8 on the year.

  • FOOTBALL: Old rival awaits on homecoming

    Anderson County vs. Woodford County.

    Or as they call it east of the Kentucky River, Woodford County vs. Anderson County.

    For years, there was little that could get the juices flowing than when the Bearcats and Yellow Jackets – or should that be Yellow Jackets and Bearcats – hooked up any time, any sport.

    That passion has dwindled somewhat, but certainly not entirely, in most sports as the schools are no longer regional rivals despite being located less than 15 minutes apart.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady Bearcats trying to overcome multitude of injuries

    Anderson County girls' soccer has been taking its lumps recently, yet coach Jason Earnest says his team “will be fine.”

    The Lady Bearcats dropped matches to Franklin County and Mercer County last week to see their slump reach five losses in six games to fall to 6-9-1 on the year. Yet, Earnest feels his team will be better prepared for the post-season battles for district, regional and state championships.
