  • Bearcats look to get better...

    The optimist says things can’t get any worse than things were last Friday at Meade County. Anderson County got little accomplished on either side of the ball and took a 48-0 whipping.

    The pessimist would point out that Meade went 2-9 a year ago and this week’s opponent, Mercer County, advanced to a regional championship game in Class 4A and has some key performers back in the fold.

  • ‘That’s football’

    If you’ve been around high school football as much as I have, you had to hold your breath a little in the fourth quarter of Anderson County’s game at George Rogers Clark last Friday night.

    The game was already in hand, with the only question being the final score, but there was Anderson County quarterback Tyler Peters racing around left end. Just before he got to the sideline across the field from the Anderson bench, he took a wicked hit that lifted him off the ground. Then took another that flipped Peters in mid-air.

  • Joyful day for Lady Cats in...

    A 14th place finish in its own tournament might not sound like much, but success is measured in many different ways in high school sports.

    Such is the case for the Anderson County High School girls’ golf team. The Lady Bearcats finished 14th in the 24-team Joy of Golf Tournament at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course Saturday, but turned in a 394 team score, the Lady Bearcats’ best of the season.

    Tailgates. Pep rallies. Friday night lights. The new school year is here! And that’s exciting news for student-athletes and high school sports fans alike.

  • Bearcats happy with win over...

    WINCHESTER – It was a scene Anderson County football had not experienced in a while.

    The Bearcats were smiling at the end of a football game Friday night.

    Anderson had just beaten host George Rogers Clark, 27-14, on a night when the Bearcats lost nearly every statistic except the one that counts. And in winning their season-opener, the Bearcats snapped a modest three-game losing streak dating to last October.

  • Anderson second in Classic

    FRANKFORT – Frankfort jumped on Anderson County early, then kept the Bearcats from making any kind of comeback to take the championship of the Frankfort Rotary Capital City Classic boys’ soccer tournament Saturday night.

    Frankfort ripped the Anderson defense for a 4-0 halftime lead, then added another goal four minutes into the second half to set the final score in the match played at the Sower Soccer Complex.

    Frankfort remained perfect through three matches while Anderson dropped its first match in three games. Anderson fell to 2-1.

  • Lady Bearcats third in...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ soccer team got the season underway with a split in the I-65 Battle of the Turfs, hosted by Mercy Academy last week.

    The Lady Bearcats dropped a 6-1 decision to Louisville Male in the tournament opener last Monday, but recovered for a 4-3 win over Thomas Nelson in Saturday’s consolation game. In between, a contest against Mercy was called because of the weather. Anderson won a coinflip to be the three seed in the consolation bracket.

  • Bearcats travel to Meade County

    Fresh off its win at George Rogers Clark last week, Anderson County travels to Meade County Friday night for what Bearcat coach Mark Peach expects to be a battle.

    A Class 6A school, Meade fell to 6A power Simon Kenton, 47-13, in the season opener last Friday in Brandenburg. Peach says that result is not indicative of the Green Wave’s potential. “I have seen them on film and they are good,” Peach said.
