Anderson County High School

  • Bearcats return to field Friday

    It might seem to be trite or cliched, but it is true that Friday night, Anderson County plays its most important game of the 2016 football season to date.

    Forget the fact that Anderson has played an undefeated team in South Oldham or were the victim that snapped perennial power Boyle County’s three-game losing streak -- Boyle has not lost since -- or even that the Bearcats whipped rival Franklin County on Homecoming night.

    You can even overlook the fact that Anderson’s record stands at 2-4.

  • ‘I’m going to the state!’

    Hayden Elder just had a feeling things were going right.

    “He came off the green at No. 9 and said, ‘I am going to the state,’” Anderson County boys’ golf coach Nate Hollon said.

    Elder knew what he was talking about last Tuesday. The high school junior finished with a two-over 74 at Bardstown’s Maywood Country Club to earn his spot as one of three individual qualifiers for the state tournament. Elder will tee off for the state meet at Bowling Green Country Club Friday morning.

  • Quire blitzes Danville, Owen

    With weeks like last week, Shane Quire might not want the high school soccer season to end.

    The Anderson County junior ripped visiting Danville for four goals in last Thursday’s regular-season finale. The outburst came three days after another four-goal night against Owen County.

    Quire powered the Bearcats to an 8-4 win over Danville and a 7-0 thrashing of Owen County. In between. The Bearcats settled for a tie at Louisville Waggener last Tuesday.

    “When Shane is on his game, he is untouchable,” Anderson coach Khamisi Campbell said.

  • Tough course tames Bearcat golfers at state

    BOWLING GREEN – The leader board was saying Anderson County was right up there with the big boys at the state golf tournament last Tuesday, but those watching the Bearcats in real time knew differently.

    After six holes, the Bearcats really were among the state’s best, standing seventh out of 24 teams and apparently with nowhere to go but up.

  • Seniors bookend goals as Cats roar in home finale

    Ben Simmons could not have asked for a better finale.

    The Anderson County senior delivered a pair of spectacular goals to give the Bearcats an early lead in what became a 5-0 win over Bourbon County in the final home match of the boys’ high school soccer season Saturday afternoon.

  • Montgomery Co. storyline mirrors that of Woodford

    Things almost sound like an instant replay for Anderson County football this week.

    When the Bearcats were prepping for their game at Woodford County last Friday, they were getting ready for a team that had not beaten Anderson in years, had rarely come close over that time and, most importantly in the present, had to feel it had what it takes to beat the Bearcats in 2015.

    Montgomery County comes to town Friday with practically the same storyline.

  • District soccer washed out Monday

    The Anderson County girls had taken a 2-0 lead in the first 25 minutes when storms postponed the 30th District tournament Monday at Spencer County High School.

    Anderson and Spencer were to have finished playing at 5:15 Tuesday after press deadlines.

    The 30th District Boys’ soccer tournament was to get underway Tuesday night with Collins playing Spencer County upon the completion of the girls game. The Anderson County and Shelby County boys were to follow.

    The championship matches are set for Thursday, Oct. 18 at Spencer County High School.


    TAYLORSVILLE – Josh Brown had never been better and it could not have come at a better time.

    Anderson County’s senior right-hander dominated host Spencer County last Thursday as the Bearcats rolled to a 5-1 win in 30th District baseball game.

    In Anderson’s most important game of the year to date, Brown used a combo of wicked curveballs and quick fastballs to lead the Bearcats past the pesky Bears. Brown gave up just two hits and struck out 13. He also walked two.

  • Anderson archers place third in state tourney

    The Anderson County High School archery team finished third in the state archery tournament, held last Thursday at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

    Anderson finished third with a score of 4,466, behind state champion Trigg County’s 4,507 and Madison Central with 4,484.

    Noah Platt led Anderson’s boys with a 293 score, finishing sixth overall. Chance Wayne fired a 291, good for 21st.

  • Cats fly past Franklin

    From staff reports

    John Paul Garmon’s smacked two doubles, giving Anderson County the big boost as the Bearcats defeated Franklin County, 6-4, last Tuesday in Frankfort.

    Garmon’s second-inning belt cleared the loaded bases, putting the Bearcats up 4-1. Franklin all three runs were unearned as the Flyer defense had already committed three errors in the inning. Garmon also scorched a seventh-inning double and went on to score an insurance run.
