Today's Sports

  • Anderson athletes get fall...

    Eleven different Anderson County High School athletes were recently honored as all-district or all-region selections in their different sports.

    Lady Bearcat volleyball players Ashley Couch and Bethany Hardin were named to the All-Eighth Region Tournament team by the region's coaches. Earlier, Shelbi Savoie, Liberty O'Neal and Hardin were selected to the All-30th District Tournament team. The Lady Bearcats advanced to the regional semifinals for the first time in four years.

  • FOOTBALL: Peach reflects on...

    Mark Peach knows plenty of high school football teams would gladly trade their 2012 seasons for the one Anderson County just enjoyed.

    The Bearcats finished 8-3. They were ranked among Class 5A's Top 10 most of the year. They won the games they were supposed to win and might have picked up a couple more.

    Yet, after advancing all the way to the state championship game in 2011, there was obviously little joy around the Bearcat camp when the season abruptly ended with a 48-0 loss to Cooper in the first round of the state playoffs on Nov. 2.

  • Serious swimming

    Anderson County got a taste of how serious competitive can be last season.

    Braden Peyton, now graduated, swam the race of his life in the boys' 50-yard freestyle, clocking in at 23:93. Unfortunately for him, the final state meet qualifier turned in a 23:64, meaning that in less than the time to blink an eye, an Anderson swimmer missed out on being the school's first state qualifier.

  • Applications being taken 
Nov....

    Applications for Kentucky's second sandhill crane hunting season will be accepted online at www.fw.ky.govfrom Nov. 15-30, according to a news release.

    The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will issue permits to 400 hunters through a randomized computer drawing. Applicants drawn for a hunt must pass an online identification test before they can receive a permit.

  • Youth football league battles...

    When the teams lined up for the final game of the 2012 edition of Anderson County youth football, there were no contrasting jersey colors.

    There was no other way of telling who was on offense or defense other than removable yellow beanies stretched over the eligible receivers.

  • Playing Like the Pros

    Anderson County was a far cry from the Indiana Pacers or Sacramento Kings Saturday afternoon but the Bearcats did just fine in their scrimmage against Southwestern at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

    Actual score was not kept, but it appeared Southwestern, which made the  Final Four of the Sweet 16 last year and is one of the 12th Region favorites this season, won by about 10 points. About 100 fans of the teams were able to watch the game and Lawrenceburg resident Ed McKee was the public address announcer for the game.

  • Bowman makes own name as Wendy...

    Forrest Bowman never really compared well with his older brother on the basketball court. Now, he's glad he didn't.

    The senior at Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg turned his experiences in trying to live up to some self-imposed expectations into being named one of 20 state finalists for the Wendy's High School Heisman Award. Records were not readily available, but it is believed that Bowman is the first Anderson County resident to advance so far in the selection process for the prestigious award.

  • Cross country team has tough...

    The Anderson County cross country team had a tough day in Saturday's Region 6 cross country meet, held at Masterson Station Park in Lexington. Both the Anderson boys and Anderson girls finished eighth in the region and the Bearcats were shut out from individual qualifications as well.

    Paul L. Dunbar won the boys' team competition with Tates Creek, Lafayette and Henry Clay all qualifying for the state. The top five individuals not on those teams also qualify.

  • Three-peat!

    The Anderson County High School disc golf team wins its third straight state championship.

  • COLUMN: A big-time football...

    The playoff pairings showed Anderson County was hosting a playoff football game Friday night.

    Could have fooled me.

    I even checked the mileage on my car. The odometer had barely moved since I left my office on the hill across Highway 127 from Anderson County High School. Apparently, I had worked the game at Warford Stadium, but I could have sworn I had been to Cooper High School, just outside Cincinnati.
