  • Roberts qualifies for state

    Anderson County High School cross country runner Kinsey Roberts has qualified for the state meet, to be held Saturday, Nov. 8, at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Roberts turned in a personal best of 22:05 in the Class 3A, Region 6 meet, held in Maysville Saturday.

    A freshman at Anderson County, Roberts will be running in the statewide race, which is scheduled to get underway at 1:30 p.m.

    Lexi Thompson also set a personal record for the 5K race, turning in a 26:29 time, but did not qualify for the state.

  • Volleyball season comes to...

    Anderson County’s volleyball season to remember ended with a night to forget last Monday.

    The Lady Bearcats saw their season come to an abrupt end when Simon Kenton whipped them in three straight sets in the first round of the girls’ Eighth Region Tournament at Carroll County High School.

    Simon Kenton moved into the regional semifinals, taking all three sets by identical 25-14 scores. Anderson saw what was arguably the finest season in the history of the Lady Bearcat program come to an end at 24-8.

    Kentucky’s modern gun deer season opens statewide on Saturday, Nov. 8. When it does, Gabe Jenkins will have been in his new role as the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ deer and elk program coordinator for a little more than a month.

    After earning his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Eastern Kentucky University, he was hired by Kentucky Fish and Wildlife in 2007 to work in the deer and elk program.

  • Bearcats roll past Collins in...

    Anderson County said a rousing good-bye to the Bearcat football seniors with a 40-12 win over Collins in the regular-season finale for both teams.

    Anderson finished the regular season at 7-3 and will host Scott High, of Kenton County, in the first round of the state Class 5A playoffs next week. Collins finished the regular season at 4-6 and will enter the Class 4A playoffs as a No. 3 seed.

  • Still a mystery

    What really happened that night in Shelbyville?

    I mean what really happened? For over 20 years, I have heard stories about that night when the Anderson Bearcats were robbed of their first district football championship.

    Or it was the night when the Bearcats played their collective hearts out but saw their first district championship slip through their fingers when an official had the courage to make a crucial call that nullified what might have been the winning touchdown.

  • Collins pays visit, unsure of...

    You can forget the notion that when Collins comes to town Friday night, Anderson County will be hosting a meaningless football game.

    For one thing, ever since he took over at his alma mater 10 years ago, Anderson coach Mark Peach has bristled at the suggestion that any game is meaningless. This one is no exception.

    “Collins is a quality football program,” Peach says. “This is a good opportunity for us to work on some things and get better prior to the playoffs.”
