  • Hyatt leads Campbellsville to...

    Anderson County resident Anna-Marie Hyatt led the Campbellsville University women’s golf team to the championship of the 2014 President’s Cup of the Battle for Highway 55 on Sunday.

    Hyatt shot a 155 (79-76) on the Twin Pines Golf Course in Columbia, Kentucky, for her first individual win as a collegian. In the final round, Hyatt had five 3-putts and still shot a 76. She finished two strokes ahead of teammate Ashley Goodin.

    The Lady Tigers defeated Lindsey Wilson 7.5 to 3.5 in the Ryder Cup-style match.

  • Lady Rams take the court
  • Lady Bearcats split four matches...

    The scorecard will show that the Anderson County girls’ soccer team split four matches last week. The eyes, however, saw a team that is coming together and should be a force by the end of the year.

    The Lady Bearcats defeated district rival Spencer County and routed regional foe Owen County, but lost to highly-regarded Boyle County and North Oldham during the past week. Another contest against Western Hills, was scheduled for Monday night after press deadlines.

  • Morgan leads golf Cats over Sayre

    Anderson County overcame some early missed shots to nip Lexington Sayre 154-155 in boys’ high school golf action last Tuesday at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.

    “We were fortunate that Sayre’s five-man missed a par putt on the final hole,” said Anderson coach Jim Beward. “That said, I thought we hung tough despite some poor shots early and managed to get a couple of needed birdies later in the round.”

  • FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Bearcats...

    The red, white and blue just runs through these guys.

    Every day. Every week. Every time they get together to play football, these Anderson County Bearcats are as red, white and blue as Toby Keith.

    They’d be just as at home with Rick Monday or Jim Craig as they would Nick Saban.

    Monday, playing for the Chicago Cubs, famously grabbed Old Glory from some protestors who had gotten on the field at Dodger Stadium and were intent on burning the flag.

  • Red, white and blue runs through...

    This ain’t no rag it’s a flag

    And we don’t wear it on our heads

    It’s a symbol of the land where the good guys live

    --Charlie Daniels

    It all started when an Anderson County football fan brought a large American flag to a game several years back.

  • Olympian's message to the...

    Staff Sgt. Dallas Robinson was not always a world-class athlete and he makes sure everyone hearing his message understands that.

    “I am one of six who got to compete in Russia as a soldier and an Olympian,” he said a few moments before addressing the Anderson County football team on Aug. 21. “I wasn’t the best athlete on my high school team. I was probably the third-best and ended up in the Olympics.”

  • Bearcats aiming for repeat title...

    Mark Peach knew the rich history of Anderson County football success – and its missing link – when he undertook the challenge of rebuilding the fortunes of Bearcat football in December, 2004.

    There had been many great teams. He’d even played on one that went undefeated in the regular season in 1986. There had even been a good number of Anderson clubs to make the top five in their respective classes from time to time.

  • Bearcats set to embark on title...

    Anderson County embarks on what it hopes will be a high school football season filled with joy when the Bearcats host George Rogers Clark this Friday, Aug. 29 at Hollie Warford Stadium.

    Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

    A year ago, the Bearcats were sloppy with four turnovers and seven penalties but still managed to rout the Cardinals, 50-21, in the season-opener.

    Some things have changed since then as Anderson had key graduation losses, but Clark also has had to learn a new system as Mike Riddle has replaced Steven Collins as Clark head coach.

  • Lady Cats can’t finish, fall...

    Anderson County dominated play but had little to show for it in the season opener of the girls’ high school soccer team.

    Harrison County took advantage of a Lady Bearcat defensive mistake in the first half then withstood several Anderson threats to salvage a 1-1 tie last Wednesday at the Anderson pitch.
