  • Bearcats take care of business...

    Anderson County left no doubt concerning its district superiority with a rousing 41-7 win over East Jessamine Friday night in Nicholasville.

    Anderson improved to 8-1 on the year and finished the district portion of its schedule unbeaten at 5-0. It is the first time Anderson has been perfect in district play since the 2007 season that saw Anderson go unbeaten in the regular season.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats look for high...

    All season long, Anderson County football coach Mark Peach has preached a two-word sermon to his team:

    No excuses.

    There would be no excuses of the Bearcats going against the toughest schedule they have faced since Peach arrived in 2005, and one of the toughest in school history.

    There would be no alibis given for poor field conditions or, heaven forbid, letdowns.
    However, it would appear a letdown would be Anderson's biggest enemy Friday when the Bearcats travel to East Jessamine for the final district game of the season.

  • FOOTBALL: What's a Bearcat...

    As Franklin County's football team took the field at Hollie Warford Stadium Friday night, the Flyers ran through a banner that simply asked the question, “What's a Bearcat?”

    Over the next two hours or so, or 48 minutes of game clock time, the Flyers got a resounding answer they would never find in Wikipedia or through a Google search.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: No blurry lines in...

    The Class 5A, Region 3 playoff picture started coming into focus last weekend and will be sharpened with the games of this week.

    Anderson County has clinched first place in District 6, while an early season Bearcat foe, South Oldham, has taken the school's first outright district crown in District 5.

  • COLUMN:Tide had turned before...

    The call was a curious one, no question.

    It might have not been completely unexpected, but was still one that Franklin County caoch Chris Tracy had to know would open himself up to second-guessing, at best, or criticism if it did not work.

    The call was a fake punt with Franklin facing a fourth-and-5 situation on its own 14 yard line. Only 77 seconds were left in the first half in Friday's showdown for the Class 5A, District 6 championship against Anderson County.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Shelby ousts Lady...

    SHELBYVILLE – Few expected it to end this way.

    Especially after Anderson County had beaten Shelby County twice during the 2013 volleyball season, few thought the Lady Bearcats would go down in three sets to that same Shelby team in the 30th District Tournament semifinals, held Monday night at Collins High School.

    The incredible weather so far this fall has many in Kentucky thinking about football, deer hunting, Keeneland and crappie fishing.

  • DISTRICT CHAMPS! Bearcats...

    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.
