  • 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.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bearcat...

    The Anderson County High School volleyball team dominated on the road against East Jessamine on Thursday.

    East Jessamine was no match for the Lady Bearcats who pulled out three straight wins during Thursday’s match. “The varsity girls looked strong tonight with fewer errors, that helped us to win big over East Jessamine with game scores of 25-8, 25-14 and 25-16. If they continue to play with this type of determination our skills will be unstoppable,” said Anderson assistant coach Bobby Hardin, who ran the team in head coach Courtney DeLong's absence.

  • Courage in Munich to reunite...

    Georgetown College alumnus Kenny Davis and Hall of Fame sports journalist Billy Reed have formulated an idea to reunite the historic 1972 U.S. men's Olympic basketball team.

    Courage in Munich will mark the first time all 12 teammates will be together since the games 40 years ago, according to a news release from Georgetown College.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady Bearcat...

    Anderson County's girls' soccer team might have learned more in a no-decision than any of its three games in the first week of the 2012 season.

    The Lady Bearcats went 1-1-1 in their first three games, routing Marion County 7-0 last Wednesday, but dropping a 2-0 decision at Russell on Saturday. Yet, it was a scoreless tie in the season opener at Harrison County that had Lady Bearcat coach Jason Earnest smiling.

    “A tie on the road to a pretty good team is always good,” he said. “I predict Harrison County to win (the 10th) Region this year.”
