  • Lady Cat golfers post good...

    With the regular season winding down, the Anderson County High School girls’ golf team continues to show some improvement, but still struggles with the consistency they desire heading into the post-season tournaments.

    Last week, the Lady Bearcats shot a season low 9-hole score with a 176 in a tri-match with Western Hills and Franklin County at Wild Turkey Trace with freshman Haley Case leading the way with a 6-over 41 followed by Kallie Jo Smith’s 43 and Jaclynn Ruble with a 45. Allaka Lewis followed with a 47.

  • Hunting and fishing license...

    From staff reports

    The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission has recommended that the department increase prices for some resident Kentucky hunting and fishing licenses, according to a news release.

    It will be the first resident license price increase in more than a decade, and the first increase of the senior and disabled sportsman’s licenses since their inceptions in 1999.

  • ‘You could have heard a pin drop’

    There were some major questions surrounding Anderson County football back on Aug. 25.

    As the Bearcats boarded their busses for a 90-mile trip home from Meade County, they had taken an 48-0 whipping that was the program’s most one-sided regular season loss in over a decade. The Bearcats were beaten in every way, but the questions were a bit deeper than what the very ugly stat sheet could answer that night.

  • BEARCATS HOLD ON, DEFEAT MERCER

    One play.

    One play was all that stood between a rousing Anderson County win and an overtime that could have done major damage to the optimism that had filled a near full house at the Bearcats’ home opener just moments before.

    Anderson was clinging to a 21-19 lead as Mercer County lined up for a two-point conversion attempt that could have tied things with 17.5 seconds to play.

  • Valley visits

    Homecoming week at Anderson County High School should provide plenty of mystery.

    The Bearcats take on Louisville Valley for the first time ever in a contest that few know what to expect. What is known is that Valley has lost all three of its outings thus far this season, but Bearcat coach Mark Peach says the Vikings are dangerous.

    “They are very athletic,” he said. “Watching them is like watching the 40-yard dash or the 4X100-meter relay.”

  • Ray Shouse Scholarship announced

    Asbury University men’s basketball coach Will Shouse and his wife, Whitney, have announced the formation of the Ray Shouse Scholarship.

    The scholarship funds will be used to help a student in financial need, according to a news release.

    The release said the intention is to use the funds for a student at Asbury University but the Shouses say, “We will follow the Lord’s guidance if there is a need of another student attending college at another institution.”

    Will Shouse is a graduate of Anderson County High School.

  • Collins blitz too much for...

    Collins used a quick passing attack and opportune defense to defeat Anderson County, 5-0, in boys’ 30th District soccer action Thursday evening on the Anderson pitch.

    Collins’ Kevin Lanham completed a hat trick with three goals, including one about 10 minutes into the contest to give the Titans the only goal they would eventually need.

    Collins took control early when the Titans gained possession near midfield, then got the ball to Lanham in transition. Lanham was able to send a laser past a diving Anderson goalie Shjon Ripy for the score.

  • Lady Bearcats have no answer...

    Collins used intimidating size and a quick passing game to defeat host Anderson County in straight sets in 30th District volleyball action last Tuesday.

    The Lady Titans never trailed in a 25-20, 25-7, 25-14 win.

    “Collins is a really good team,” Anderson coach Ryan Brown said. “They have three girls 6-feet tall and all are good hitters.”

    Collins would later defeat Louisville Eastern, a Top 20 team, establishing the Titans as one of the top clubs in the Eighth Region.

  • Bearcats hold on to beat Mercer

    With 17.5 seconds to play Thursday night, R.J. Boies knew he had only one job.

    Get it done and Anderson County officially serves notice that Bearcat football is alive and well, thank you very much. The senior nose guard, with some help from Zach Labhart, got it done in resounding fashion.

    Boies shot through the Mercer County line to sack quarterback Gunnar Gillis as the Titans were going for a two-point conversion that would have tied another showdown in a long rivalry and would have likely sent it to overtime.

  • Inspired by Challengers

    There are times in life when you are truly challenged by something you see.

    Bill Lewis was one of those people and because of a simple gesture, Anderson County kids who have physical difficulties will benefit for many years.

    Mr. Lewis passed away two weeks ago. He was not an Anderson County native. He never worked in Anderson County nor did he ever live here. Yet, he was greatly touched when he visited one day about two years ago.
