  • Remembering Trooper Eric Chrisman

    Aaron Hume took first place overall in the Trooper Eric Chrisman Memorial 5K Run/Walk hosted by Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg on Saturday.

    Hume covered the 3.1 mile course in 18:56.7 as runners battled a steady ran that began just after the race started. Hume finished about 9 seconds ahead of Andrew Hockensmith, who completed the race in 19:05.5. Both runners were in the 19-29 age group.

  • Boyle regains old form, blasts...

    About the only thing atypical about Boyle County last Friday was its record.

    It is true that the Rebels, one of the regal names in Kentucky high school football over the last 20 years, stepped on Bob Ware Field with an 0-3 record. Anderson County coach Mark Peach had warned the week before that the mark was deceiving.

  • Freshman Foley lifts depleted...

    SHELBYVILLE -- It took a bit longer than expected but Anderson County notched a huge 30th District win last Wednesday in Shelbyville.

    Anna Foley’s goal with 1:16 left in overtime gave Anderson a 1-0 win over host Shelby County in girls’ high school soccer action at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    Foley ripped her no-doubter from about 18 yards and sent the Lady Bearcats into a wild celebration.

  • Bowling Green trip a short one...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ golf team experienced a short week, thanks to the weather.

    The Lady Bearcats were on the course at the Bowling Green Country Club for the Women’s Bowling Green Invitational Saturday when thunderstorms halted the event.

  • Cann earns academic honors

    Makenzie Cann earned a spot on the Southeastern Conference academic honor roll last year. She is eligible to play for the Wildcats after sitting out a transfer year.

  • Marching Bearcats top...

    The Anderson County High School marching band had a big day at the Southwestern High Contest Saturday in Somerset. The Marching Bearcats won numerous awards and were named grand champion of the show.

    The Marching Bearcats were named the top band in Class AAAA along with Best Percussion and Best Colorguard.

    Overall, Anderson also took Best Percussion and Best Colorguard along with the Grand Championship.

  • Franklin not the typical...

    Anderson County hits the midpoint of the 2016 football season Friday night, hosting a team against which it has struggled to have success over the years.

    And it will be Homecoming when the Bearcats host Franklin County Friday at 7:30 p.m.

    Anderson and Franklin have played sporadically over the years, meeting every season since 2011. In that time Franklin has four times, Anderson twice with both of the Bearcat wins coming in 2013 at Warford Stadium.

  • Net Cats squander big lead in...


    A strong start was not enough for the Anderson County High School volleyball team Thursday night.

    The Lady Bearcats jumped out to an 8-1 lead in the first set but saw Shelby County rally to win that one, 25-16, then go on to a 3-1 victory in a key 30th District contest in Shelbyville.

    “We started out strong and with the intensity I like to see,” Anderson coach Bob Hardin said. “They just cannot maintain that.”

  • Proper shotgun fundamentals...

    A dove comes into your section of the field on opening day. You crouch behind a row of sunflowers and excitedly wait for the dove to come into range.

    The dove keeps coming and you jump up, shoulder your shotgun and fire, followed by another shot and then another, none of them threatening the bird. The dove keeps flying out of the field.

  • Boyle blasts Bearcats to get...

    Boyle County dominated Anderson County in every phase of the game to rout the Bearcats 41-13 in high school football action Friday night at Bob Ware Field.

    “I think that is a very accurate assessment,” Anderson coach Mark Peach said of the one-sentence wrapup.
