  • GOLF: Short game escapes Harrod...

    Tyler Harrod's short game is what got him to the state golf tournament. Last Friday, it might have made his trip to Bowling Green a short one.

    Harrod shot a 15-over 87 in the opening round of the tournament, held at Bowling Green Country Club, finishing well off the cut.

    “I drove the ball well. My short game was what hurt me the most,” said Harrod, a junior. “I struggled with chipping and it really didn't help when I lipped out several par putts.”

  • GOLF: Riley advances at state,...

    Kaitlyn Riley's time at the state high school golf tournament wasn't what she wanted, but it was not bad either.

    The Anderson County High School junior shot rounds of 82 and 81 at the tournament, held last Tuesday and Wednesday at the Bowling Green Country Club. While Riley made the first-day cut and finished in a five-way tie for 27th place individually, her goal had been to be in the Top 10 when play ended.

    When the stage is the biggest, the little things usually make the difference.

    Such was the case in the 30th District Volleyball Tournament semi-finals.

    Anderson County reached down and found a bit more consistency and meshed it with a new-found resiliency to oust Collins 3-1 (25-17, 17-25, 25-15, 25-22) Monday night.

    Five thoughts on Anderson County's win over West Jessamine

     

  • GOLF: Harrod bows out of state...

    Anderson County High School golfer Tyler Harrod bowed out of the state golf tournament when he shot a 15-over 87 in the first round at Bowling Green Country Club.
    Harrod got off to a rough start with a bogey on the first hole, then a triple bogey on No. 2. He never could recover as the cut was 80 strokes.
    The full story of Harrod's state tournament showing will appear in the Oct. 10 Anderson News.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats escape West...

    Anderson County overcame four turnovers, a misplayed kick return and, most of all, West Jessamine running back Devin Taylor to post a 41-39 district win at Nicholasville Friday night.

    Trailing 20-0 with 1:59 left in the first half, Anderson rallied to take a 34-32 lead after three quarters. Anderson had gotten on the board with when Ross Cox caught a touchdown pass from Zachary Carmichael with 1:11 left in the first half.

  • COLUMN: Not impartial when it...

    I admit it.

    Sitting in the Sun Deck at Great American Ball Park last Thursday I never really lost hope.  Sure, the Reds were trailing the Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 in the bottom of the ninth inning. Sure, Zack Cozart and Joey Votto had struck out.

    I still had hope.  Call me a Reds fan, if you like. You'd be making the major understatement. I am a huge Reds fanatic. Have been since Jim Maloney was blowing National League batters away and Leo Cardenas was one of baseball's most under-rated shortstops.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats favored but...

    It makes little difference to Mark Peach what the results were the last four times Anderson County has played West Jessamine.

    All the Bearcat football coach can see is 27-21 and 42-21plus what lies ahead for his team.

    For the record, Anderson has dominated the recent meetings with West Jessamine. The Bearcats have pummeled the Colts like a lame workhorse. The last four times the teams have met, Anderson has taken home victories with a combined score of 189-42. That's an average of 47.25-10.5 for those who are counting.)

  • FOOTBALL: No mess (What?) as...

    There wasn't much messy about Anderson County's win over Woodford County last Friday night.

    Except, of course, the football field.

    And the Bearcats' and Yellow Jackets' uniforms.

    And the shoes of just about anyone who had to be on the rain-soaked field at Warford Stadium.
