    Anderson ended the regular season last week with impressive wins over Shelby County and John Hardin and was leading highly-regarded Tates Creek when the game was called because of field conditions.

    The Lady Bearcats whipped visiting Shelby, 3-0, on Oct. 5.

  • Franklin ousts Bearcats in...

    OWENTON -- Franklin County scored inside the first 10 minutes of the game and never trailed as the Flyers defeated Anderson County, 3-1, in the semifinal round of the 25th District soccer tournament at Owen County High School.

    Franklin repeatedly thwarted Anderson attacks and dd not allow the Bearcats to mount a sustained attack. The Bearcats' only goal came when Lyndon Stucker connected from the right side in the 28th minute.

  • Total domination: Bearcats...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There is one less unbeaten football team left in Kentucky. Anderson County made sure of that Friday night with a 42-7 rout of host Bullitt Central. The Bearcats remained unbeaten themselves in their most impressive performance of the season.

    The teams swapped early touchdowns, then it was all Anderson as the Bearcats jumped to leads of 21-7 and 35-7 at the first two quarter breaks.

    Ben Walker's return of the opening kickoff put the Bearcats in business at their own 46. Five plays later, Jacob Russell scored from seven yards out.

  • COLUMN: Reading the papers was a...

    You have to love it when a football player – or any athlete, for that matter, says, “I never read the papers.”

    It's always been puzzling to me how those guys who don't read what's in print always seem to know what is printed about them, but we'll leave that for another column.

    But Anderson County football is another story. The Bearcats read the papers – this one I hope – and know what is being said about them. Take last Friday's game at Bullitt Central.

  • Former Anderson coach, pastor...

    LOUISVILLE – It would be hard to imagine a Kentucky fan being inducted into the University of Louisville Athletic Hall of Fame.

    But Saturday night, Tommy Barnes was standing near mid-field ot Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, along with football greats Ted Washington and Roman Oben, being introduced to the Louisville homecoming crowd as one of the Class of 2009.

    Not bad for a guy who admits to being a Wildcat basketball fan growing up.

  • Lady Bearcats advance to region

    EMINENCE – Everything had come down to one game. After thousands of serves and volleys, only 25 points stood between the end of the volleyball season and moving on.

    Anderson County answered Monday night.
