  • 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.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady Bearcat...

    Rivalry games often have unexpected results.

    Anderson County worked overtime, and then some, to put away district rival Shelby County in a shootout last Friday at the Shelby County Athletic Complex. 

    The Lady Bearcats outscored Shelby, 4-2, in the penalty kick segment of the contest to go 3-0 in district play. Anderson, after a loss at Bardstown on Saturday, stood at 7-10-2 heading into the final week of the regular season.

    Shelby, which fell to 0-3 in the district, is 10-7-1 overall.

  • GOLF: Signature shot sends...

    SPRINGFIELD -- Tyler Harrod only needed to be himself.

    In a playoff for the final individual berth in the state golf tournament, Harrod dropped an approach shot about 18 inches from the pin, then calmly tapped in his putt to par the extra hole and defeat Green County's Brennan Milby at the Region 4 Golf Tournament last Wednesday.

    Playing the 344-yard first hole at Lincoln Homestead Golf Course, near Springfield, Harrod simply did what he had to do.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats slide past...

    Anderson County erupted for two third quarter touchdowns on the way to a 21-7 district win over visiting Woodford County Friday night.

    Despite dominating the stat sheet, the Bearcats were only up 7-0 just past the midway point of the third quarter when Ross Cox ran two yards for a touchdown. Granville Hayes set the score up when he motored for 61 yards the play before.
