  • Band has big day at Nelson...

    From staff reports

    The Anderson County High School Marching Band had a big day at the Pageant of Bands, held Saturday at Nelson County High School in Bardstown.

    The Marching Bearcats swept Class AAAA honors, taking first place, Best Colorguard and Best Percussion.

    Overall, however, Anderson was named Reserve Grand Champion, finishing behind Bourbon County by less than a point.

    Anderson took the top prize in the Percussion category.

  • Hobbled Lady Bearcats drop three...

    One probably should not be surprised if those around Anderson County girls’ soccer don’t know whether to head to the pitch or the hospital these days.

    Hobbled by injuries all season, the Lady Bearcats went winless in the Boyle County Invitational Tournament last week, losing all three contests.

  • Mustangs roll in Carnahan Bowl

    The Anderson County Middle School football team remained undefeated with a 30-8 win over East Oldham in the annual Seth Carnahan Memorial Bowl, held Saturday at Anderson County High School.

    Anderson dominated from the outset, getting on board quickly when Michael Duncan returned an interception 40 yards for a touchdown on East Oldham’s first possession. Everett Marrett followed with a 35-yard touchdown run and the rout was on.

    Anderson scored again on a 45-yard pass from Jagger Gillis to Tyler Puckett and a 50-yard run from Marrett.

    Shorter days and yellowing leaves are about the only ways you can tell it is late September. Temperature wise, it feels like August lasted six plus weeks.

    “We are 10 degrees behind, water temperature wise, than usual for this time of year,” said David Baker, Central Fisheries District biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “The water is usually cooler by now.”

  • Dunbar stops Bearcats

    LEXINGTON -- Paul L. Dunbar scored 19 unanswered points to post a 40-21 win over Anderson County in high school football Friday night in Lexington.

    The Bulldogs took less than two minutes to get untracked after Anderson's Zach Labhart scored on a 31-yard interception return with 10:20 to go in the third quarter.

    Dunbar answered by going 83 yards in 1:38 to go back in front on a 28-yard scoring pass from Gavin Bugg to Tre Homer and the Bulldogs never looked back.

  • A rival, a favorite, a hero

    I can still see Charles Hurt coming right at me.

    At least it seemed he was coming my way.

    Hurt was a freshman at the University of Kentucky back on Dec. 15, 1979. He’d not been quite as hyped as his UK classmates Sam Bowie, Derrick Hord or Dirk Minniefield, Kentucky’s Mr. Basketball from the previous spring. But I knew of Charles Hurt.

    How could anyone from Anderson County not know of this incredible 6-foot-6 athlete who’d had his way against the Bearcats during his high school career at Shelby County.

  • Franklin leads Bearcats past...

    Anderson County football is alive and well.

    At least it was Friday night as the Bearcats rode a monster game from running back Blake Franklin -- 357 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns -- for a 35-21 Homecoming win over arch-rival Franklin County.

    On a night when questions were being whispered about the direction of the Bearcats’ season, the junior led an Anderson attack that overcame a sluggish start and a lengthy lightning delay to put up 457 yards of offense and slowed a Franklin County attack that had been averaging better than 38 points a game.

  • Improving scores giving Bearcats...

    The Anderson County High School boys’ golf team entered the home stretch of the season last week with improving scores even though the Bearcats went down to defeat in a pair of dual matches.

    Thursday, the Bearcats ran into a Franklin County team that is considered one of the contenders not only for a state tournament berth but a threat to carry home the state championship hardware.

    Franklin defeated Anderson 142-170 in a match on the Bearcats’ home course at Wild Turkey Trace.

  • Seth Carnahan Bowl set for...

    The annual Seth Carnahan Memorial Bowl is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 24, at Anderson County High School.

    The football game pits Anderson County Middle School against East Oldham Middle School. The eighth-grade teams are scheduled to kick off at 11 a.m. with the seventh-grade teams following.

    The bowl game started as a way to honor Seth Carnahan, then an Anderson County Middle School football player, who drowned while playing in a creek in Scott County.
