    MOUNT STERLING – Anderson County won in spite of itself Friday night.

    The Bearcats overcame eight fumbles – losing four – to post a 49-33 win over Montgomery County in a Class 5A, District 6 football game.

    “I am so proud of the guys how they were able to come back after the mistakes we made,” said Anderson coach Mark Peach, who quipped that eight fumbles in a game had to be some sort of school record.

    All the kinks had better be taken care of before Friday.

    Anderson County opens Class 5A, District 6 play that night when the Bearcats travel to Montgomery County. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

    Prior to the season, this one looked to be the contest that might decide who stays home and who goes on the road in the first round of the state playoffs. While Anderson is the defending district champ, Montgomery was seen as the darkhorse, capable of knocking off either the Bearcats or Franklin County, which has shared district dominance with Anderson since 2011.

    Fun was back in style for Anderson County volleyball over the weekend.

    The Lady Bearcats rolled to the championship of their own tournament, the Anderson County Volley Smash, winning all six matches, most of them convincingly.

    Anderson improved to 15-5 on the season and underscored the perception that the Lady Bearcats could be a dark horse candidate in the Eighth Region title chase next month.

    It was largely about getting back to simply having fun. The Lady Bearcats laughed on the court. They acted silly on the bench.
