  • 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.

  • Anderson volleyball advances to...

    EMINENCE – The Anderson County High School volleyball team pulled away in the third and deciding game to defeat Henry County in the District 28 Tournament, being held at Eminence High School.

    After a pair of nip-and-tuck games that saw tie scores and lead changes as the norm, the Lady Bearcats never trailed in the third to post a 26-24, 20-25, 25-15 win. The Lady Bearcats got 13 kills from Hannah Smith and got huge games from defenders Cindy and Sandy Zhang, who sparked the third-game rally with deft passing.

  • SPORTS BUZZ for Oct. 10: Friday...

    I don't know when I have seen a more dominating performance by an Anderson County football team over a good opponent than I did Friday night at Bullitt Central.

    This was one that was supposed to be close. It was touted by some writers as one of the top games in the state. Two unbeaten 5A teams, both with aspirations of making noise in the post-season.

  • Point taken!

    There aren’t many things in the life of a teenager that can top that day when he gets his driver’s license, but Neal Wells isn’t your ordinary 16-year-old.

    He’s a football player. A good one.

    And just two days after being able to take a spin without someone sitting to his right, Wells came up even bigger to help Anderson County outlast visiting Jeffersontown for a major district win Friday night.

    And just like his driving now, Wells made the biggest play of the night on his own.

  • Conference champs!

    The Anderson County Middle School football team rolled past Shelby West 29-14 last Tuesday to with the regular season conference championship and remain unbeaten on the year.

    The Mustangs spotted Shelby West an early 6-0 lead, then roared back for the win.

    With time running out in the first quarter, Anderson quarterback Zachary Carmichael connected with Ross Cox on a 25 yard touchdown pass, but the conversion failed.

  • 'We can make it better'

    There is a widespread perception that the Kentucky-Indiana high school basketball all-star series is on life support, but Anderson County coach Glen Drury believes the series could become a hoops version of Lazarus.

    Last week, he took an official step toward pumping life into the series, at least on the south side of the Ohio River, by accepting an offer to coach the Kentucky boys’ team in 2011.
