    Anderson County rallied from an early 14-0 deficit, then controlled the second half to defeat Franklin County, 35-21, for the Class 5A, District 6 championship Friday night at Hollie Warford Stadium.

    The Bearcats captured their third district title in seven years while improving to 7-1 on the year. Franklin, which had won the last two district crowns, fell to 8-1 and suffered its first regular-season loss since 2010.

  • 30th District volleyball...

  • SOCCER: Spencer slips past Lady...

    Jason Earnest has been known to shed tears after a post-season loss, but the Anderson County girls' soccer coach could only muster a faint smile last Wednesday night.

    The Lady Bearcats had just taken visiting Spencer County through two overtimes before falling in a penalty-kick shootout in the 30th District girls' soccer tournament championship game.

  • SOCCER: Shelby ends Bearcat...

    There would be no offensive explosion this time around.

    And this time, an elimination game in the first round of the 30th District soccer tournament, was the one that is remembered.

    Visiting Shelby County made Anderson County's season end on a sour note with a dominating performance and a 3-0 win to move on to play Collins for the district title Thursday night.

    The Rockets got goals from Cole Meredith and Julio Morales in the first half, then put things away midway through the second half when Meredith found the net again.

  • SOCCER: Shelby ends Bearcat...

    The Anderson County High School boys' soccer team saw its season come to an end Tuesday night when the homestanding Bearcats dropped a 3-0 decision to Shelby County in the 30th District Tournament semifinals.

    Anderson fell behind 2-0 at the half and could never generate a sustained attack. The Bearcats ended the season with a 6-11-1 record.

    A full story will appear here online on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 16 and will also appear in the Oct. 23 edition of The Anderson News.

  • COLUMN: Hearts should enforce...

    By now, you have had the time to a) seethe, b) show righteous indignation, c) wonder what the world is coming to, or d) laugh at the headlines emerging from the news regarding the Kentucky High School Athletic Association and handshakes.

    Or your reaction could have been like one of my old college professors who loved to give multiple choice questions in an any, all, or none format.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats, Flyers...

    Just like it has been the last two seasons, Anderson County and Franklin County sit atop the Class 5A, District 6 standings with Friday's showdown being for the regular season district championship and the district's top seed in the state playoffs, which start next month.

  • FOOTBALL: Mission: Impossible?...

    It was supposed to be Mission: Impossible for Anderson County football.

    No, we aren't talking about just beating West Jessamine. The Bearcats took care of that nicely with a 24-6 win that drew a collective “ho-hum” when the score posted across the state. It was a margin in line with what the major computer rankings predicted.

    But stopping West Jessamine's Devin Taylor? Let's just say Peter Graves or Tom Cruise might not have accepted such a task.

  • GOLF: Riley's place in...

    Kaitlyn Riley is sure she didn't play her best golf at the state high school tournament last week.

    The record book, however, is just as sure about her place in Anderson County sports history.
