    Boys' soccer

  • Bearcat soccer looking for...

    Coming off one of the best seasons  in the history of Anderson County boys' soccer, it would be easy for the Bearcats to bask in the glow of their accomplishments in 2009.

    Anderson went 13-5-4, the second highest victory total of the decade. The Bearcats had one stretch of nine wins in 10 matches. Senior Seth Beasley ranked 10th in the state and scored a school record 29 goals.

  • Lady Bearcats' heads go up...

    As its big lead slowly disappeared, last Tuesday, the Anderson County volleyball team needed a dig.

    A dig of its own attitude.

    Even though the Lady Bearcats had already won the first game, 25-23, over rival Franklin County, a five-point lead was quickly gone as Franklin County knotted things with the teams deadlocked at 11 in the second game.

    Anderson coach Bob Hardin called time out.

    “Their faces got down,” Hardin said. “They needed to get back up.”

  • COLUMN: Real world not like the...

    Sometimes, it would be nice if the real world worked like major college sports.

    Think about it. Any time some person or some entity thinks more money is needed, just hit the faithful for more cash. And don't worry about competitive pricing or someone undercutting the price. If one does not like the hike, then so be it. Two are willing to take the hit instead.

  • Makeover not diminishing high...

    Three coaches in three years does not sound like the way to build a winning tradition in high school sports. Nevertheless, optimism is high around Anderson County volleyball in 2010.

    The Lady Bearcats made history with their first regional win two years ago, then matched that last year. But the team is full of new faces in 2010.

  • Anderson volleyball opens with...

    Many of the faces are new but Anderson County's volleyball team played like seasoned veterans in defeating Franklin County Tuesday night. The Lady Bearcats held on for a 25-23, 25-17 win in the season opener for both teams.

    After taking the first game, Anderson found itself tied at 11 in the second when coach Bob Hardin called time out. “Their faces were down,” he said. “I wanted their faces up.”

    The Lady Bearcats regrouped and pulled away down the stretch.

  • Flora scorches greens in Boyle...

    Jacob Flora showed why there is such optimism surrounding Anderson County boys' golf in the Boyle County Invitational, held Saturday at Old Bridge Golf Course in Danville.

    Flora birdied the first hole, then went on to a 3-under 69, leading the Bearcats to a fourth-place finish among 17 teams in the always strong early-season tournament.

    Flora finished in a four-way tie for the individual second place, three strokes behind Clay County's Todd McDaniel.

  • Lady Bearcats seek elusive state...

    One thing should be made straight before the first kickoff of the season: Anderson County's girls' soccer team is loaded.

    “This is the most talented team I have ever had by far,” Anderson coach Jason Earnest says without hesitation.

  • Linking Kentucky to the World

    LEXINGTON — It’s hard to believe, but the guy heading up the 2010 World Equestrian Games is not really an expert in the saddle.

    “I have ridden a horse twice in my life,” laughs Jamie Link, the chief executive officer of the games, who calls Lawrenceburg his hometown. “I took a lesson at the Kentucky Horse Park and I took a 5-mile trail ride at Mt. Brilliant Farm. It was a blast.”

    Suffice it to say that Link is no Calvin Borel. And that’s just fine for the 1980 graduate of Anderson County High School.

  • Hoping to get better

    Even with the graduation of its most successful performer since Anderson County formed a girls' golf team in 2002, there is no fretting around the Lady Bearcat camp as they get ready to open the season.

    The team opens against Spencer County, next Wednesday, Aug. 11 at Wild Turkey Trace.

    Part of that calm is simply head coach Lynn Gritton's demeanor. He's laid back, does not put much emphasis on won-loss records, and preaches getting over a bad hole or bad day quickly.
