  • Records can be deceptive

    It would be easy to look at Mercer County’s 1-3 record and conclude that Anderson County a shoo-in to get a win in high school football action Friday night.

    Such thinking would be foolish. The Titans will present a major challenge to the Bearcats in a renewal of a rivalry that dates to 1963.

    “Mercer, like us, has played a very tough non-district schedule,” Anderson coach Mark Peach says. “They are a very good football team.”

  • SOCCER: Lady Bearcats explode past Collins, clinch district’s top seed

    Anderson County clinched the top seed in the 30th District Tournament Monday night, defeating visiting Collins, 5-2, in girls’ high school soccer action.

    Meanwhile, the Bearcats forced turnovers on three of Boyle's first four possessions. Unfortunately for the Bearcats, they could only convert one of the Boyle turnovers into touchdowns.
