    About all anyone needed for an explanation of Dunbar's 21-7 upset of Anderson County Friday night was found about a third of the way down the listing of team statistics.

  • Improving Dunbar visits for...

    Anderson County might be having second thoughts about the game it selected for Homecoming 2015.

    You know the procedure for homecoming. In theory, schools are to look at the schedule and find the team that is most likely to be a piece-of-cake win, with the constraints of not having homecoming for the home opener or on Senior Night.

    For Anderson County, that selection was Paul Laurence Dunbar.

  • Communication woes sink Lady...

    If Anderson County learned anything in it’s own VolleySMASH Tournament, it has to be the reminder that consistency is a prerequisite for championships.

    However, after rolling through pool play with three easy wins and winning a thrilling first game of the semifinal set Anderson fell apart in the second game as Lafayette jumped to a 6-1 lead and claimed a 25-15 win.

    Every sport likes to talk about the home field advantage, but there is no edge like the one that awaits the Anderson County boys’ golf team Monday.

  • Lady Bearcats record season’s...

    Anderson County hopes to keep going lower and lower.

    In golf, of course, that means better and better as the Lady Bearcats turned in their best scores of the high school golf season last week.

    The highlight of the week came at Old Bridge Golf Course on Saturday when the Lady Bearcats placed fifth in the Boyle County Invitational with their lowest 18-hole total of the season. Anderson carded a 369 team total, a score that was only eight strokes out of third place and 22 strokes behind tournament champion Casey County.

    Senior Brycen Fenwick played as Anderson’s No. 1 in the first varsity start of his career.

    Fenwick carded a 43, a score that Anderson coach Jim Beward blamed on “one bad hole.”
