  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats to test one...

    Ever since that December Thursday in 2004 when he was introduced as Anderson County's new football coach, Mark Peach has had his sights on one football program in Kentucky.

    Boyle County.

    The Rebels have become the consistent statewide power that has marched the same path Peach is hoping to lead the Bearcat program on.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Rally leads Collins...

    So close to taking a huge district win. Anderson County was so closed that the Lady Bearcats could taste it.

    But close to the brink of elimination, Collins rallied to win Game 4, then whipped the Lady Bearcats in the tie-breaker to take a 3-2 (25-16, 22-25, 15-25, 25-20, 15-8) win in a major 30th District showdown.

  • SOCCER: Lady Bearcats dominate...

    Anderson County needed a win. That it was a blowout made things even better.

    The host Lady Bearcats routed 30th District rival Shelby County, 5-0, last Wednesday to get their first win of the season. Most importantly, the Lady Bearcats likely put themselves in position to avoid the fourth, or bottom, seed in the four-team district tournament next month.

  • SOCCER: Bearcats tie Fairdale

    Anderson County was unable to hold on to what could have been its first win of the boys' high school soccer season last Thursday.

    Fairdale scored inside the final 10 minutes to tie the Bearcats, 3-3, on the Anderson pitch.

    Anderson had broken a 2-2 tie when Joe Rose connected near the 20 minute mark in the second half, but Fairdale came back to salvage the tie.

  • COLUMN: Real-life questions...

    I have to make this column fit into about 650 words.

    I could probably use 6,500. Or more.

  • MOTOR SPORTS: Local racer Borgia...

    Anderson County resident Tom Borgia has been invited to participate in the Fourth Annual Legends at Budds Creek drag racing weekend, to be held Saturday, Sept. 15 and Sunday, Sept. 15 at Maryland International Raceway in Mechanicsville, Md.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats will way to...

    Anderson County found a way to win Friday night.

    The Bearcats overcame a night in which the offense was not clicking and a quality opponent, South Oldham, was showing a big play capability.

    But somehow, the Bearcats willed their way to a 35-20 win before an overflow crowd at Hollie Warford Stadium.

    Anderson exploded for two touchdowns in the final five minutes to make the final score more one-sided than the game actually was.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats to host South...

     

    This is not the South Oldham football team you are used to seeing.

    These Dragons, who will try to spoil Anderson County's home opener, really are capable of breathing some football fire.

    Anderson hosts South Oldham, a team it has played – and beaten – off and on for 20 years, Friday night at Hollie Warford Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats not perfect,...

    WINCHESTER – Perfection is never completely attainable, especially in the first test of a high school football season. But goodness, gracious, Anderson County was impressive Friday night.

    The Bearcats thumped a vastly improved George Rogers Clark, 50-21, at Cardinal Stadium, an outcome that does not tell the story of just how dominant the Bearcats really were, despite the predictable mistakes.
