    Notes written on a water tower...

    OK, not really, but I can't let the fall sports season go any further without commenting on the new face watching Anderson County sporting events.

    In case you have not been to any Bearcat football or soccer games there is a permanent spectator to the northwest of Hollie Warford Stadium and from this corner, it is a great addition.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bearcats take...

    SHELBYVILLE – Rivalry contests are supposed to induce nail-biting, hair-pulling and just about every other form of self-destruction but last Thursday's volleyball match between Anderson County and Shelby County might have taken things to some new extremes.

    The Lady Bearcats outlasted Shelby in a key 30th District contest, 3-2 in games and did so on a night when neither team forged a lead of more than seven points. Anderson finally did that in the tie-breaker, jumping out to an 8-1 lead in the fifth game.

  • ONLINE EXTRA: Bearcat golfers...

    Three days after the fact, the reality of the Anderson County boys' golf team qualifying for the state tournament still had not totally taken hold of the Bearcats.

    “It is a lifelong dream. It hasn't really sunk in yet,” senior Nick Wilson said Thursday, as the Bearcats gathered at Wild Turkey Trace for a practice.

  • Sports schedule correction

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Cats place high...

    Anderson County placed second in the silver bracket of the Second Annual Volleyball SMASH Tournament, held at the high school Friday and Saturday. Eight additional teams participated with LaRue County being crowned the gold champions in a stellar performance over Madison Central for the title.

    Anderson fell to Bardstown (25-19, 25-27, 15-6) for silver bracket crown.

  • GOLF: Bearcats earn state berth...

    CAMPBELLSVILLE – It probably would not be a good idea to refer to golf as an “individual sport” around Anderson County.

    At least not any time soon, it wouldn't. For the Anderson County boys' team, earning a berth in the Kentucky high school state tournament was as much a result of teamwork as springing the halfback on third-and-long or finding a way to beat the full-court press.

  • SOCCER: Close is not enough for...

    Anderson County was just a little late in getting to the game Saturday afternoon.

    South Oldham scored twice in the first seven minutes, then kept the Lady Bearcats at bay the rest of the way for a 2-1 victory in girls' soccer action.

    “We started off really slow,” Anderson coach Jason Earnest lamented. “We have had that happen quite a bit this year, for some reason. We weren't ready to play at the start of the game.

  • SOCCER: Simmons' hat trick...

     It's commonly called a “hat trick.”

    And when David Simmons went to work against Shelby County last Tuesday, there is little doubt his hat was black.

    He was the bad guy to Shelby. He was the executioner.

    Simmons scored three times over a seven-minute span to power Anderson County to a 5-2 win over its 30th District rival.

  • GOLF: Riley does it again!

    Anderson County golfer Kaitlyn Riley must like working overtime.

    The Lady Bearcat senior won a sudden-death playoff by sinking a birdie on the first playoff hole of the Region 7 Tournament, held at Danville Country Club Monday afternoon.
