  • COLUMN:Tide had turned before...

    The call was a curious one, no question.

    It might have not been completely unexpected, but was still one that Franklin County caoch Chris Tracy had to know would open himself up to second-guessing, at best, or criticism if it did not work.

    The call was a fake punt with Franklin facing a fourth-and-5 situation on its own 14 yard line. Only 77 seconds were left in the first half in Friday's showdown for the Class 5A, District 6 championship against Anderson County.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Shelby ousts Lady...

    SHELBYVILLE – Few expected it to end this way.

    Especially after Anderson County had beaten Shelby County twice during the 2013 volleyball season, few thought the Lady Bearcats would go down in three sets to that same Shelby team in the 30th District Tournament semifinals, held Monday night at Collins High School.

    The incredible weather so far this fall has many in Kentucky thinking about football, deer hunting, Keeneland and crappie fishing.

  • DISTRICT CHAMPS! Bearcats...

    The Bearcats captured their third district title in seven years while improving to 7-1 on the year. Franklin, which had won the last two district crowns, fell to 8-1 and suffered its first regular-season loss since 2010.

  • SOCCER: Spencer slips past Lady...

    Jason Earnest has been known to shed tears after a post-season loss, but the Anderson County girls' soccer coach could only muster a faint smile last Wednesday night.

    The Lady Bearcats had just taken visiting Spencer County through two overtimes before falling in a penalty-kick shootout in the 30th District girls' soccer tournament championship game.

  • SOCCER: Shelby ends Bearcat...

    There would be no offensive explosion this time around.

    And this time, an elimination game in the first round of the 30th District soccer tournament, was the one that is remembered.

    Visiting Shelby County made Anderson County's season end on a sour note with a dominating performance and a 3-0 win to move on to play Collins for the district title Thursday night.

    The Rockets got goals from Cole Meredith and Julio Morales in the first half, then put things away midway through the second half when Meredith found the net again.

  • SOCCER: Shelby ends Bearcat...

    The Anderson County High School boys' soccer team saw its season come to an end Tuesday night when the homestanding Bearcats dropped a 3-0 decision to Shelby County in the 30th District Tournament semifinals.

    Anderson fell behind 2-0 at the half and could never generate a sustained attack. The Bearcats ended the season with a 6-11-1 record.

    A full story will appear here online on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 16 and will also appear in the Oct. 23 edition of The Anderson News.

  • COLUMN: Hearts should enforce...

    By now, you have had the time to a) seethe, b) show righteous indignation, c) wonder what the world is coming to, or d) laugh at the headlines emerging from the news regarding the Kentucky High School Athletic Association and handshakes.

    Or your reaction could have been like one of my old college professors who loved to give multiple choice questions in an any, all, or none format.
