  • FOOTBALL: State Finals Notebook

    Peach said experiencing finals brought back fond memories

    Anderson County football coach Mark Peach has not been a regular in making the state championship game as a head coach but he's not a stranger to playing on the final weekend, either.

    “This week, it all came back to me,” Peach said after Thursday's community pep rally at Anderson County High School. Peach had taken Hancock County to the finals 12 years ago.

  • BASKETBALL: Christian Academy...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg Rams defeated the Georgetown Crusaders, a home schooled group, 67-41, recently. The game, played at the Early Childhood Center Gymnasium drew 164 fans. From the start the Rams outmanned the Crusaders. Coming off a loss last week, CAL Coach Cory Robinson was not satisfied with sloppy play early in the game against Georgetown. He pulled the starters within the first minutes, apparently getting their attention as the Rams outscored Georgetown 31-5 in the second quarter.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lexington...

     

    Lexington Catholic connected on 11 three-point shots to defeat host Anderson County 60-51 in a battle of teams ranked in the pre-season Top 15 on Friday night.

    “We didn't defend the three at all,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said.

  • FOOTBALL: At least one Bearcat...

    At least one Lawrenceburg resident has plenty of Bowling Green blood in her veins, but she was  bleeding red on Saturday night.

    “Heading down to watch the Bearcats in the (state football) finals is exciting to me but because it will be in Bowling Green, playing the Purples at Western Kentucky University makes it even more special. Bowling Green is my home away from home and always has been,” Tamara Smith, of Lawrenceburg, said last Thursday.

  • STATE FINALS UPDATE: Underdog...

    The Anderson County football team knows what kind of chances the rest of the state is giving the Bearcats to upset Bowling Green in the state Class 5A championship game on Saturday night. And that does not deter the Bearcats.

    Both major computer polls list Bowling Green as about a three-touchdown favorite to deny the Bearcats their first state championship.

  • STATE FINALS EXTRA: Harp hopes...

    Before this year's run to the state championship game, Sam Harp's three years (1985-1987) were considered one of the best eras ever in Anderson County football. After Harp took the Bearcats to the regional final in 1987, the Bearcats did not advance that far again until last year's team gave top-ranked John Hardin all it wanted before falling.

    This year's Anderson County team won the school's first regional championship, then topped that with an impressive performance Saturday against Southwestern to advance to the final.

  • Daunting task stands between...

     

    The task standing between Anderson County and a state football championship is a monumental one.

    The Bearcats must knock off the team ranked at the top of Class 5A for much of the season, Bowling Green, and must do it in the Purples' hometown.

  • Bearcats have gone from bottom...

     

    The day I met Mark Peach seems like an eternity ago.

    I can still remember the first team meeting in the gymnasium like it was yesterday.
