  • J-town's Jackson burns...

    LOUISVILLE – If you were to ask members of the Anderson County football team, chances are that some might say that Demichael Jackson could score a touchdown before you could say his whole name.

    He's not quite that speedy, but Jackson left Bearcat defenders tackling air, slapping the ground and generally watching him  from behind as he led Jeffersontown to a 42-20 win over the visiting Bearcats in Class 5A, District 4 action Friday night.

  • COLUMN: Places change but Field...

    Even though I grew up on a farm, I can't really say that my personal Field of Dreams was carved out of a cornfield.

    There was none of that “If you build it, they will come.”

    It was more like “If I can get there, I will go.”

    Go to Findlay and Western on the west side of Cincinnati. Crosley Field. Go to that pristine white structure to catch Reds baseball. That, more than anywhere else is where I wanted to go and, when I grew up, wanted to work, driving balls above that white line for a home run.

  • J-town blitzes Bearcats for...

    LOUISVILLE -- Jeffersontown scored twice in the first 3:35, then matched everything Anderson County could muster to score a major 42-20 victory in high school football action on Friday night.

    J-town's Demichael Jackson motored 52 yards on the game's second play, then after holding Anderson to a three-and-out, the Chargers drove 71 yards in just six plays to quickly take command.

  • Riley qualifies for state

    UPDATED: Kaitlyn Riley will tee off at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Bowling Green Country Club. She will start on the No. 10 hole.

     

    Kaitlyn Riley is off to quite a start in her high school golf career.

    The freshman at Anderson County High School shot an 84 at Monday's regional tournament to qualify for the state tournament, to be held Monday, Oct. 4 and Tuesday, Oct. 5 at Bowling Green Country Club.

  • Anderson boys' golf falls...

    The Anderson County boys' golf team fell short of its own high hopes at the regional golf tournament, held at The Pines at Lindsey Wilson in Columbia.

    The Bearcats finished fifth in the tournament, won by West Jessamine. Adair County, playing on its home course, also advanced to the state as the second place team.

    No Anderson individual made the final state cut on a day when several golfers had hot rounds and all of the individual qualifiers shot par-72 or below. Anderson's Marcus Lake was two strokes off a possible state berth.

  • Early Anderson deluge makes for...

    About 10 minutes prior to the kickoff of Anderson County's district football opener with Grant County last Friday, the gray sky dropped a steady rain on Hollie Warford Stadium.

    The minor nuisance lasted only a short time but a major storm really was brewing. It wore red jerseys and white pants and was still smarting from a game that had been snatched away seven days before.

  • COLUMN: No coach-speak needed...

    When someone has been around this business as long as I have, he can usually decipher coach-speak.

    You know the routine. Coach speak – Rex Ryan not included – has become even more widespread with the Internet making nearly every publication available at the click of a button.

    “They are a good football team.” Translation: “They are the next team on the schedule.”

  • Big win, but not big enough

    FRANKFORT – Every time Franklin County cleared a ball over the top or took its sweet time to get things moving Monday night, it was a lesson to remind Anderson County of the pecking order in the 25th District of girls' high school soccer.

    The scoreboard recorded that Anderson earned an impressive 4-1 win over a team that was 10-3-1 heading into the match.

    But it was not impressive enough.
