  • 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.

  • District volleyball pairings set

    Pairings for the 30th District Volleyball Tournament have been announced.

    The championship game is set for Tuesday, Oct. 21 at 7 p.m.


    Kentucky 45, South Carolina 38

    The Wildcats got their first big win of the Mark Stoops era, twice rallying from 14 points down to shock South Carolina, 45-38, Saturday night in Lexington. Bud Dupree hauled in a batted pass and returned it 6 yards for the winning touchdown with 2:29 to play.

    Anderson County High School graduate Ross Cox, who grew up a Wildcat fan and says he stormed the field several times after big wins, got to live the experience as a player. Cox is a walk-on tight end for the Wildcats.

  • Anderson ladies have first home lacrosse match

    The Anderson County Lady Bearcats' lacrosse team played its first-ever home game Friday night, but suffered a 4-3 loss to Bryan Station in a match played at the Anderson County High School soccer pitch.

    Lacrosse is a new sport in Anderson County and is being organized as a club sport and not part of any school athletic department.

    The Anderson boys, also a club team, have been playing together for several seasons. Saturday, they routed host Elizabethtown, 16-1, as Thomas Barrett scored six goals.
