  • Lady Bearcat golfers win two...

    With the post-season approaching, the Anderson County High School girls’ golf team recorded a pair of match play wins before a tough tournament outing last week.

    The Lady Bearcats complete their regular season this week with a pair of matches and the West Jessamine Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Connemara Golf Course in Nicholasville. The Region 7 Tournament is set for Monday, Sept. 26 at Juniper Hills Golf Course in Frankfort.

  • Lot repaving at Beaver Lake...

    A grading and repaving project on the main boat ramp parking lot at Beaver Lake in Anderson County is underway, according to a news release.

    “We ask anglers and boaters use the overflow parking area across Beaver Lake Road from the ramp,” said David Baker, Central Fisheries District biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

  • Franklin leads Bearcats past...

    Blake Franklin ran for 193 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Anderson County High School football team to a 35-21 win over archrival Franklin County Friday night on Bob Ware Field.

    Both totals were career bests for Franklin, a junior.

    The game was delayed for over 90 minutes when lightning was spotted in the area. While storms never visited the Anderson field, high school rules required the game be stopped until lightning or thunder had passed for 30 minutes.

    At the time of the delay, Anderson led 14-7 early in the third quarter.

  • Boyle regains old form, blasts...

    About the only thing atypical about Boyle County last Friday was its record.

    It is true that the Rebels, one of the regal names in Kentucky high school football over the last 20 years, stepped on Bob Ware Field with an 0-3 record. Anderson County coach Mark Peach had warned the week before that the mark was deceiving.

  • Protesting pros could learn...

    What in the world are they thinking?

    The key word is “thinking.” Or more specifically, the lack of thinking by bench-warming millionaire Colin Kaepernick and his misguided minions.

    If you don’t know about Ol’ Colin’s antics, you have undoubtedly been putting on your best imitation of Rip Van Winkle or you have been mountain climbing in Tibet.

  • Freshman Foley lifts depleted...

    SHELBYVILLE -- It took a bit longer than expected but Anderson County notched a huge 30th District win last Wednesday in Shelbyville.

    Anna Foley’s goal with 1:16 left in overtime gave Anderson a 1-0 win over host Shelby County in girls’ high school soccer action at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    Foley ripped her no-doubter from about 18 yards and sent the Lady Bearcats into a wild celebration.

  • Net Cats squander big lead in...


    A strong start was not enough for the Anderson County High School volleyball team Thursday night.

    The Lady Bearcats jumped out to an 8-1 lead in the first set but saw Shelby County rally to win that one, 25-16, then go on to a 3-1 victory in a key 30th District contest in Shelbyville.

    “We started out strong and with the intensity I like to see,” Anderson coach Bob Hardin said. “They just cannot maintain that.”
