  • Anderson defeats Conner,...

    Anderson County came up with one more big play than visiting Conner and held on to take a 35-34 win in the second round of the state Class 5A football playoffs Friday night.

    On a night that saw three kickoffs and an interception returned for touchdowns and featured one of Kentucky's most highly-regarded quarterbacks in history, it still came down to the play of the lines to determine who would move on to the Region 3 championship game.

  • FOOTBALL: Second-half eruption...

    Anderson County was reeling. The Bearcats knew it. Cooper knew it.

    Anyone in the stands at Hollie Warford Stadium or even just following the first round game of the state Class 5A football playoffs knew it, too.

    Anderson, one of the favorites to head to Bowling Green for the state championship game, was looking at a 35-21 deficit with Cooper threatening to tack on another touchdown just before halftime. But one of the unfortunate breaks of the game started a chain reaction that resulted in the Bearcats surviving with a 45-35 win Friday night.

  • CROSS COUNTRY: Brumley runs well...

    Anderson County High School runner Jacob Brumley capped a strong season with a good showing in the state Class 3A cross country meet, held Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Brumley turned in an 18:37.24, placing Brumley 160th out of 251 runners. Brumley was in the middle of the pack as a large group of runners finished between 18 and 19 minutes.

    Patrick Gregory, a senior from Louisville Butler, won the individual championship with a time of 15:55.18.

Team members are, front row, from left: Hunter Wells, Nathan Ward, Chandler Royalty, Michael Secen, Ethan Gray and Caleb Hatton. Back row: Michael Cooper, Josh Smith, Jason Smith, Nathan Bain, Asa Brown and Zach Dennis.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats must stop...

    It might be easy to forget the real reason Anderson County is hosting Conner for a high school football game Friday night. But that is the nature of the beast these days.

    Contrary to popular opinion, the big story is not that Drew Barker is coming to town. Yes, it's that Drew Barker, the guy that walks on Southeastern Conference water, if you were to listen to some University of Kentucky football fans.

  • COLUMN: A refresher course in...

    It's time for a refresher course in football fandom and we're just in time for Friday night.

    In case you missed it – and chances are you have been mountain climbing with a Tibetan monk if you have missed it – Anderson County will be hosting Conner in the state Class 5A playoffs Friday.

    You know Conner. And we are not talking Jimmy Dan, either.

  • BASKETBALL: McKee selects...

    Anderson County girls' basketball player Eriel McKee's announcement of her college choice was simple, yet enthusiastic, last week.

    McKee, a senior, posted “It's official I'm a MSU Eagle!” on her Twitter account last Monday night.

    McKee chose Morehead State and is expected to sign her national letter-of-intent with the school during the early signing period, which begins today, Nov. 13, and runs through next Wednesday, Nov. 20.

  • SWIMMING: Swim Cats look for...

    Anderson County swimming has become much more than just a dip in the pool.

    While the Swim Cats are still looking for that first person to earn a berth in the state meet, they are growing ever closer. Whether they are able to make that breakthrough this year remains to be seen, but coach Karla Williams is excited about her team's chances.

  • FOOTBALL: Anderson survives...

    Anderson County survived and advanced Friday night.

    “That's all that matters now,” Bearcat coach Mark Peach said after his team withstood a major scare from Cooper to record a 45-35 win in the first round of the state Class 5A playoffs at Hollie Warford Stadium.

    The top-seeded Bearcats, the state runner-up in 2011, overcame a 14-point deficit to oust last year's state runner-up. The Bearcats rallied from a 35-21 halftime deficit with a dominating performance in the second half.
