  • Second half surge lifts Mustangs...

    LOUISVILLE -- The Anderson County Middle School football team appeared to be in deep trouble.

    Already trailing Louisville Kammerer,12-8, early in the third quarter, the Mustang defense was backed up inside its own 10-yard line when Caleb Puckett intercepted a pass then raced 95 yards untouched for a touchdown.

    Even though the Mustangs failed on the conversion attempt, everything had changed.

  • Fall sports tournament and...

    Updated Anderson County sports schedule



    30th District Tournament

    At Anderson County High School

    Tuesday, Oct. 18: Championship match, 7 p.m.


  • District titles on line as...

    The Anderson County High School soccer teams look to add some hardware to the school's trophy case Thursday night but do so from different perspectives.

    The Bearcats and Lady Bearcats play the teams from Collins High School in the 30th District championship matches at Collins. The girls kick off at 6 p.m. with the boys going at 8.

    The Anderson teams have vastly different histories.

  • A Senior Night celebration

    Senior Nights are supposed to be a night of celebration.

    Anderson County was able to do just that Monday night when the Lady Bearcats put together one of the their better outings of the volleyball season as they downed Owen County, 25-17, 25-21.

    The Lady Bearcats were impressive defeating a team that was shooting for its 20th win on the season. Owen, which will enter the post-season undefeated in 31st District play, fell to 19-11 Monday.

  • Bearcats can clinch playoff home...

    The script is very clear for Anderson County Friday night: Win at Montgomery County and the Bearcats will be home for the first round of the state playoffs.

    It’s not 100 percent guaranteed but is about as close to being a sure thing as it can be. If the Bearcats regain their dominance of Montgomery, a team that had not beaten Anderson since 2001 until last season, the Bearcats will most likely be no worse than second place in Class 5A, District 6.

  • State qualifier
  • AMS runners place second in CKC

    From staff reports

    The Anderson County Middle School cross country team turned in one of its best showings ever in the Central Kentucky Conference meet, held last Tuesday in Somerset.

    The Mustang boys finished second to Woodford County, missing the championship by two points. The scores were tied after the first five runners for each team meaning a sixth score had to be counted, giving Woodford the narrow win.

  • Dunbar speed sinks battered...

    LEXINGTON -- Everything happened so quickly for Dunbar last Friday.

    The Bulldogs enjoyed a happy Homecoming when they scored 19 unanswered points to defeat Anderson County, 40-21, in high school football action at Jon Akers Stadium. Both teams now stand at 2-4 on the year.

  • Little perspective in big-time...

    For years, the proper role of athletics in academic settings has been debated, sometimes vociferously.

    On one hand, you have people that point to the Ivy League as the perfect way. There are no athletic scholarships and guys who wear those jerseys from Harvard, Yale and Princeton are more likely to be CEO of a multi-national company than selling Nikes around the globe just because they can shoot the rock or dance to the end zone.

  • Lady Bearcat golfers end season...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ golf team saw its season come to an end Monday with the Lady Bearcats placing seventh in the 20-team Region 7 Tournament at Juniper Hills in Frankfort.

    Anderson carded a team score of 398, well behind champion Madison Central’s 347. Henry Clay also qualified for the state with a 351.

    Cheyenne Searcy led Anderson with an 88 in her final high school match. Searcy also finished tied for seventh individually.

    Searcy made a strong bid to keep playing.
