    Not a lot to report on from Anderson County sports on Tuesday night, however, the Anderson County boys’ soccer team routed Marion County, 3-0.  Details will be in the Sept. 28 Anderson News.

    The big game tonight is Anderson County vs. Franklin County in girls’ soccer action.  It is a district seeding game to be played at the Anderson pitch at 7 p.m.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Bearcats explode in...



    For a half, it looked like Anderson County might be in trouble.

    David Simmons and Josh Doolin made sure the Bearcats avoided any problems on the soccer pitch.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Clark’s last...

    DANVILLE – Maddy Ruble made no secret of the fact that she called for some divine help when she saw Taylor Clark break into the open near the Mercy goal on Saturday.

    “I was thinking, ‘Dear God, please score,’” Ruble quipped moments after Clark’s second goal of the day – and fifth in two matches – gave Anderson County a 3-2 win over Louisville Mercy in the fifth-place match of the Boyle County Invitational Tournament.

  • FACE TO FACE: Laswell, Bearcats...

    Someone forgot to tell the Anderson County boys’ golf team that 2011 was supposed to be a rebuilding year. The Bearcats lost three outstanding golfers, all now at Georgetown College, and were not expected to be in contention for a state tournament berth.

    But with the regional tournament set for Danville Country Club next week, the Bearcats are among the teams expected to compete for a coveted place at the state.

  • COLUMN: Bearcats' district...

    I never knew Mark Peach was such a comedian.

    A singer? Sure.  Many people  throughout south-central Kentucky have heard the Anderson County football coach belt out a few tunes in churches.

    And guys who have played football for Peach at Hancock County, Anderson County and two stops in between have heard Peach sing too.

    The usual critique? “He’s good.”

    Lady Mustangs second at Boyle Invitational
    The Anderson County Middle School cross country team placed second in the Boyle County Invitational last Thursday as sixth grader Kinsey Roberts turned in a 13:08 time over the 3K course to finish second individually.

  • Tuesday morning sports update

    Monday was kind of a slow day in Anderson County sports, but the Anderson County High School volleyball team picked up a huge district win over Henry County Monday night. Anderson won 25-20, 25-23 to take a big step toward a good seed in the 30th District Tournament next month.

    Anderson had also beaten Henry in a non-district matchup at the Woodford County Invitational over the weekend, but Henry had swept the Lady Bearcats earlier in the year.
