  • Golfers look to add to legacy at...

    If things go as they want and believe in, Jordon Morgan and Zachary Toles will have two more rounds of high school golf.

    They are the only seniors on the playing roster of the Anderson County boys' golf team and have every intention of leading the Bearcats into the second day of competition at the Leachman/KHSAA State Golf Tournament at the Bowling Green Country Club.


    Zach Toles fist pumped. He pumped again. Then came the huge smile of relief.

    Eat your heart out, Boo Weakley. This one was sweet for Toles and the Bearcats.

    The Anderson County senior had just dropped a difficult 20-foot putt on the 18th hole that, for all practical purposes, sealed the Bearcats' berth in the state high school golf tournament Monday afternoon at Wild Turkey Trace.

  • Rain dampens girls'...

    Rain hampered play at the Girls' Region 7 Golf Tournament held Tuesday at Keene Run Golf Course near Nicholasville.

    Anderson County, led by senior Christina Montgomery's 100, finished eighth out of 19 teams, falling sell short of a coveted bid to the state tournament. The Lady Bearcats carded a team score of 426.

    Madison Central, with a 324, and Paul L. Dunbar, scoring 326, advanced to the state tournament, to be held Friday and Saturday, Oct. 9-10, at the Bowling Green Country Club.

  • Dunbar simply hands Bearcats a...

    Dunbar was so old school in its 21-7 win over Anderson County Friday night, one might have sworn the Bulldogs had a player or two wearing leather helmets.

    Ok. Ok. The Bulldogs' uniforms and gear were as stylish as any to be seen on a football field in 2015, but their modus operandi was more of a throwback than some of those duds NFL teams wear from time to time.

  • No need to push panic button

    It would be mighty easy to push the panic button on Anderson County football right now.

    It would also be foolish. Very foolish.

    Of course the-sky-is-falling crowd will be talking about everything coming down on the Bearcats harder than the rain that soaked Friday's homecoming matchup with Dunbar. They will like to point to the fact that Anderson has not lost three straight games, like it has this fall, since, well, who knows?

  • 2015 Anderson County Homecoming...

  • Shelby outlasts Bearcats, but...

    Anderson County got the win it needed Thursday night when the Bearcats defeated visiting Spencer County, 5-3, in boys' high school soccer action.

    The win gives Anderson the No. 3 seed in the 30th District Tournament, to be held Oct. 12-17 at Spencer County High School. In the tournament, the Bearcats will take on Shelby County, a team that defeated the Bearcats, 4-3, in a penalty kick shootout Tuesday night on the Anderson pitch. Spencer, the No 4 seed, will tangle with Collins, the three-time defending district champion.

  • Boys' high school golf...

    The Anderson County boys' golf team tuned up for the regional tournament with a pair of tournaments and one final home match in the last eight days of the regular season.

    On Sept. 19, the Bearcats finished sixth in the Central Kentucky Bluegrass Conference Tournament, held at Connemara in Nicholasville. Anderson had been expected to compete for the title but did not fare well in what coach Jim Beward called “brutal heat and wind conditions.”

  • Lady Bearcats win on Senior Day...

    The Anderson County girls' golf team finished its regular season Saturday at the West Jessamine Invitational, held on a rain-soaked Connemara Golf Course in Nicholasville.

    “We just had three available players, therefore we were not eligible for a team score,” Anderson coach Robert Hanks said.

    Christina Montgomery led Anderson with an 85 followed by Amy Kate Smith's 100 and Cheyenne Searcy shooting 102 over the 18 holes.

  • Mustang runners romp at Berea

    The Anderson County Middle School cross country team romped to a win in the Berea Invitational meet Saturday, finishing in front of the defending middle school state champion, Beaumont.

    Anderson finished first with 29 points, followed by Beaumont's 41.

    Cross country scores are tabulated adding together the placings of the top five finishers from a team. A perfect score is 15, meaning a certain team had the first five finishers.
