  • Vastly improved Shelby to test...

    Anderson County's football team was to have had a major test from Class 3A power Garrard County on Saturday, after press time, and some are thinking that things will not get any easier when the Bearcats travel to Shelby County this week.

    Kickoff is set for Friday, Aug. 31, at 7:30 p.m at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    Shelby County? The team that has gone 3-18 over the last two years and the club Anderson routed, 58-20 a year ago?

    Yes, that Shelby County.

  • Lady Bearcats strike first in...

    There was little doubt things might eventually turn out this way for Anderson County and Collins soccer, but not many thought it would happen so quickly.

    Yet, Anderson's 2-0 win on its home field last Monday signaled the beginning of an emotional rivalry with its new 30th District rival. “The game was very physical, just like a rivalry game should be,” said Anderson coach Jason Earnest. “It got pretty chippy too, as both teams played like we are district rivals.”

  • Searching for the next level

    SHELBYVILLE – At times, Anderson County's quest for volleyball success might seem like a never-ending cycle.

    It seems to be one filled with slick spots just when things seem to be getting over the proverbial hump. It's in the history of the program and often rears its ugly head in key matches, like last Tuesday's at Collins, that seem to summarize the Lady Bearcats' climb to where they think they should be in the Eighth Region.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats get first win

    Anderson County defeated Garrard County, 24-16, in the Pigskin Classic at Danville Saturday. Sophomore quarterback Zack Carmichael completed 11 of 13 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns, but was intercepted once.

    Carmichael was named Most Valuable Player as the Bearcats are now 1-1. See the full story in the Aug. 29 edition of The Anderson News. 

  • Club plans 3D archery shoot for...

    A 3D archery “fun shoot” is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 25 at the Anderson County Sportsman’s Club, located on Old Joe Road near the Bluegrass Parkway.

    The shoot is from 8 a.m. to noon, and organizers said it will be a good way to tune up for the Sept. 1 deer season opener.

    Cost is $10 for adults $5 for those 11 to 15 and free for shooters 10 and under.

    Divisions include open, bow hunter and youth.

    Participants will be able to select from 30 3D targets, and can shoot for fun or score.

  • COLUMN: Bearcats showed grit...

    Thoughts on Friday's football season-opening football game...

  • FOOTBALL: Bryan Station stuns...

    Friday night, Anderson County showed there is considerable talent listed on the roster of the 2012 football team.

    The Bearcats also showed they are not exactly the same group that was playing for a state championship last December. But they started their journey the same way, with a 41-34 loss to Bryan Station.

    The Defenders got the last word in a game that featured nearly 900 yards of offense and four lead changes. Quarterback Ora Johnson, who had thrown for five touchdowns, broke the Bearcats' hearts with a 5-yard scoring run with 42 seconds to play.

  • FOOTBALL: Garrard should be...

    Anderson County is coming off a season in which the Bearcats advanced all the way to the state Class 5A championship game, but that will mean little in Saturday night's game at Danville High School's Admiral Stadium.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Collins slips past...

    Collins, ranked No. 23 in the state, scored midway through the second overtime to defeat host Anderson County, 2-1, in boys' soccer action Saturday afternoon.

    The win gave Collins a leg up in the 30th District seeding race. The Titans improved to 2-0-1 on the year but more importantly, 2-0 in district play.

    Anderson suffered its first loss after a pair of wins. The Bearcats are 1-1 in District 30 action.

  • BOYS' GOLF: Bearcat golf...

    The Anderson County boys' golf team posted a 148-170 win over Shelby County last Tuesday at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.

    Lee Robinson was swinging some hot clubs as he posted a 3-under 32 on the front nine. Tyler Harrod was also impressive, turning in a 35. Josh Brown's 40 and Gabe McMichael's 41 rounded out the Anderson scoring.
    The Anderson junior varsity also rolled to a 153-198 win as Zachary Toles fired a 37 followed by Chris Sea and Trevor Morgan, both shooting 38 while Tyler Brothers came in with a 40.
