  • Mercer rivalry resumes Friday

    At one time, many years ago, it would have been difficult to find an inter-county high school rivalry with more passion than Anderson County and Mercer County.

    Unless, of course, it was Anderson and Harrodsburg.

    Those good ole days had everything that constitutes one of those make-your-season-with-a-win games.

    The series resumes Friday, Sept. 4, at Warford Stadum. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

  • Bearcats grow, rally past Clark

    WINCHESTER – Growing up is never easy. It's not supposed to be, whether it is learning from that first bad grade, first breakup with a girlfriend or the first traffic accident.

    Life happens. You learn to deal with it.

    Football happens too. A team can deal with it in many different ways. The best ones grow up, learning from the mistakes – and the good things – that happen along the way.

  • ONLINE ONLY: Early goal fuels...

    Anderson County recorded its fourth straight win with a 4-0 whipping of Western Hills Monday night in Frankfort.

    Anderson got the only goal it would need less than a minute into the contest then pulled away to improve to 4-3 on the year.

    Kinsey Roberts gave the Lady Bearcats the early advantage with what coach Jason Earnest called “kind of a hustle/fluke type of goal.”

  • Lady Bearcats sweep with...

    Anderson County got almost everything it needed when the Lady Bearcats blitzed Spencer County last Wednesday night.

    An early lead? Check.

    Autumn Miller, a senior who had been moved from midfielder to defender this season, made the most of a rare opportunity when she found the net less than six minutes in to give host Lady Bearcats the only score they would need.

  • Original Bearcat team needs...

    If Friday’s win at Clark County is any indication, the current football season could give the area’s cardiologists some extra work.

    It’s too early to dub this team something like “Cardiac Cats.” In fact, why don’t we just forget I even typed out that tired old cliché about teams that learn how to win the close ones.

    But if this team has another comeback or two when it musters less than 200 yards of offense, we will have to figure out some kind of nickname.

    But it’s got to be something original.

  • Talkative Lady Bearcats spike...

    Anderson County volleyball might have put together its most impressive win of the young season when the Lady Bearcats whipped Nelson County, 3-1, on Aug. 24.

    Nelson, which had been the runner-up in the Pikeville Invitational Tournament the weekend before, had not suffered a loss in a 5-set match before the Lady Bearcats defeated the Cardinals convincingly. Nelson has been ranked as the No. 2 team in the Fifth Region.

    “Nelson is a good team and they have some talented players,” Anderson coach Bob Hardin said.

  • Bearcats regroup, take Henry...

    Unpredictable might not do justice to the roller coaster ride the Anderson County boys’ golf team has been taking over the mid-point of the regular season.

    Last week, a pair of subpar nine-hole rounds preceded a championship in the Henry County Wildcat Invitational Tournament, held at Henry County Country Club.

  • Salato Center adds new bobcat...

    The Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort has two recent additions to its collection of exhibit animals according to a news release. The center recently acquired a 4-month-old bobcat kitten from a wildlife rehabilitation facility that will ultimately be kept on permanent exhibit.

  • Bearcats smell the coffee, roll...

    Everyone has had days like Anderson County was having at Warford Stadium Friday night.

    “Some mornings, you wake up – we have all been there – and everything falls into place,” said Bearcat football coach Mark Peach. “You are working hard and say, 'This is a great day!' and have smile on your face.”

    Then there are days like the Bearcats were, ahem, enjoying during the lid-lifter for the 2015 football season.

  • Carnahan Bowl next week

    The fourth annual Seth Carnahan Memorial Bowl is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12 when the Anderson County Middle School football team will host North Pulaski at the Anderson County High School field. Kickoff is set for noon.

    The game is dedicated to the memory of Seth Carnahan, an Anderson County Middle School player who drowned while playing with a friend in Elkhorn Creek in Scott County on Aug. 1, 2009. He was 13 years old.
