  • BOYS' SOCCER: New Bearcat...

    There is always uncertainty when change is involved. The Anderson County boys' soccer program is no exception.

    Mike Brody, who had been guiding Louisville Central for the last five years, has taken over the reins of the Bearcat program after long-time coach Brett Morris stepped down. Morris had led Anderson to six consecutive winning seasons, including an 11-10 mark last year.

    Brody, a paraprofessional, steps into a program that has some good talent but will be meshing new players into the rotation while learning a new system.

    Tuesday morning sports roundup


    Monday was a busy day for Anderson County High School sports. Unfortunately for the Bearcats, the results were not what they wanted.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bearcats turn...

     Five head coaches in five years is not exactly the textbook formula for building a high school sports program.

    But that is Courtney DeLong's welcome to her new position as volleyball coach at Anderson County High School. DeLong, one of the best ever to serve and set for the Lady Bearcats, is undaunted.

    “I think with me being new, it is different for the team,” DeLong says, “but I can relate to that. When I was in high school, we had a different coach my last three years.”

  • Current Lady Bearcats defeat...

     The Anderson County High School volleyball team hosted its inaugural Alumni Game on July 21. The current Lady Bearcat team defeated the alumni team, winning the five-game set, 3-2.

    The current team win the first two games 25-12 and 25-17 before the alumni rallied for a 25-23 win in the third game.

    “By game two, the alumni team had kind of worked through all the bad plays and were playing pretty well,” Anderson coach Courtney DeLong said in a release.

     I know I am probably in the minority but I just can't get my red, white and blue blood too worked up over the Olympics.

  • Did it for Dawson

  • Top Martial Artist

     Darren Gaebel, a member of Lawrenceburg Martial Arts, recently competed in the North American Grappling Association's competition held in Columbus, Ohio. Gaebel won a gold medal in the adult grappling division and a silver in the masters' division and will receive a national ranking based on his performance at the event.

    The NAGA is the world's largest mixed grappling circuit. The organization claims to have over 160,000 competitors worldwide.

  • GOLF: Anderson golfers looking...

     Over the last few years, Anderson County has been a slice here, a bogey there from advancing to the state high school golf tournament. It would be safe to say the Bearcats are looking for straighter drives and a much stronger short game to take that next step, a step Anderson has not taken since 1994.

  • Golfers win opener

     The Anderson County boys' golf team got the regular season started with a victory last Thursday when the Bearcats defeated Spencer County, 156-172, at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course. Senior Tyler Harrod led Anderson with a 35 over nine holes while junior Lee Robinson tallied a 35. Nick Vuick led Spencer with a 40.

    The Anderson junior varsity won its match by forfeit. Nicolas Wilson led Anderson with a 41.

    Anderson was to have played in the Shelby County Invitational on Monday. The Bearcats will host Woodford County on Wednesday, Aug. 8.
