  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Despite...

    Somehow, Anderson County is getting the job done in girls' high school soccer.

    Injuries keep mounting for the Lady Bearcats, sidelining two more starters to a team already thin because of a plethora of hurts, but they registered two wins last week to move above .500.

    The Lady Bearcats routed Owen County, 5-2, in a match not nearly as close as the score indicates, and took a 3-2 decision on the road at Madison Central in what might be their most impressive win of the year.

  • Another concussion ends soccer...

    Head injuries impacted an Anderson County High School graduate again two week's ago as Kemper Rogers saw her soccer playing career come to an end.

    Rogers, a sophomore at Midway College, suffered her third concussion during a recent practice session.

    “One of my teammates was crossing the ball and my head just so happened to be in the way,” Rogers said. “It knocked me to the ground and knocked my head gear off my head. I immediately had vision problems and I knew it was bad.”

    After downing a limit of doves at the opening day dove hunt, you feel confident you'll get another limit this coming weekend.

    After setting up in a favorite spot near a dead tree in the early afternoon, you wait for groups of doves to come into the field. Instead, a swift gray bird comes in from behind at a 45-degree angle. You raise your barrel, swing and fire, not puffing a single feather on the dove that quickly swerves away, out of danger.

  • BOYS' SOCCER: Bearcat...

    SHELBYVILLE – The smiles around the Anderson County boys’ soccer team only reinforced what the scoreboard was confirming last Thursday at Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    Not only had the Bearcats escaped with a 2-1 victory over a determined 30th District rival. They had also virtually sewed up the two-seed in the district tournament, to be held in early October.

    Anderson is now 6-2 on the season, after a loss Saturday at Madison Central, 2-1 in district play.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady Bearcat...

    Anderson County can put itself in very strong position to win the top seed in the 30th District Tournament tonight, Wednesday, Sept. 5, when the Lady Bearcats host Shelby County.

    The teams have played for many years but were not district rivals until a realignment took effect this year. Anderson is only 3-4-1 on the year, playing its perennially rugged schedule but is 1-0 in district play after beating Collins earlier in the year. Neither Shelby nor Spencer County had played a district game through the weekend.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats come back to...

    SHELBYVILLE – On a night that saw Anderson County and Shelby County combine for 69 points, 904 yards and countless skipped heartbeats, it all came down to whether a knee was down.

    And you can throw in some halftime lessons from George Washington and friends for good measure.

    “He used a story about the British during the Revolutionary War,” Anderson junior Ross Cox said of head coach Mark Peach’s halftime speech. “He said the British couldn’t figure out how the colonists would not give up.”

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats have week off

    Anderson County football will have a Friday off from football due to an open date before the Bearcats travel to Mercer County on Sept. 14.

    Anderson coach Mark Peach says the Bearcats will be working on getting better but through the week

    He expected his team to have a normal practice on Monday. Any change in the week's routine would be decided later in the week.

    Peach expects a battle at Mercer, which is coached by former Boyle County head coach Chris Pardue.
