  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats' win...

    HARRODSBURG – The makings of Anderson County's 48-7 thrashing of Mercer County might have been budding long before the Bearcats opened football practice in July.

    Try seven years. Repeat, SEVEN years.

    “We have been playing together since the third grade,” Anderson quarterback Zachary Carmichael said after he had thrown three touchdown passes to Dusty Puckett in less than 11 minutes Friday night.

  • Tourney champions

    The Anderson County Baseball Club 15-and-under team won the East Kentucky USSSA Tournament recently.

  • OUTDOORS: Camp Calvary hosts...

    These archers were among 98 shooters who turned out for the Camp Calvary 3D Archery Shoot on Aug. 11. David Chesser won the men's open class with Jessica Chesser taking the women's division.

    Winners in the men's bow hunter category were Cody Mullins (first place), Alex Lyons (second), Brad Muntz (third), Brad Wakefield (fourth), Ron Davis (fifth), Adam Harp (sixth) and Blake Chesser (seventh).

  • Bearcats hit on all cylinders,...

    Anderson County is a far different football team than it was when the season opened back on Aug. 17.

    The Bearcats are better. Much better.

    The Bearcats routed Mercer County, 48-7, Friday night in Harrodsburg, both flexing their muscle and showcasing why they fully expect to be a force in district play and in the post season.

    “We were clicking on all cyliders tonight,” Peach said.

  • COLUMN: Border Bowl great, but...

    Parked just off to my right was a small Blackhawk helicopter.

    On the drive back to Hangar 2, I had passed several other machines of warfare.

    Sitting next to me was a guy in camouflaged fatigues. We shook hands and exchanged some pleasantries before he took out his note pad. It was covered in camouflaged fabric too.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bearcats second...

    The inaugural Anderson County SMASH Tournament really was a smashing success.

    Ten volleyball teams from around Kentucky competed for the big trophy with Allen Central, from eastern Kentucky's 15th Region, captured the championship, defeating the host Lady Bearcats, 25-15 and 25-12, in the gold division final on Saturday evening.

    Bardstown won the silver championship with Western Hills taking bronze and Monticello winning copper.

  • FOOTBALL: Mercer looks to stop...

    Even though Anderson County has won – and won handily – every time the Bearcats have gone up against Mercer County since the once-heated rivalry resumed, Friday's showdown in Harrodsburg could be Anderson's toughest test before embarking on its road through district play.

    Like Anderson, Mercer is 2-1 after slipping past West Jessamine, 31-28, on Friday night. Mercer got a safety and a touchdown inside the final 1:37 to pull out the victory.

  • 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.”
