  • 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.

  • COLUMN: Agony of defeat

    Nearly 48 hours after it was all over, Taylor Gillis’ heart was still broken.

    And hurting. In a way few could really, totally understand.

    A talented senior at Anderson County High School, Taylor knew the expectations. She’d be playing the regional golf tournament on her home course at Wild Turkey Trace, would advance to the state tournament at Bowling Green this weekend, hopefully do well, and leave her mark as one of the best ever to tee it up for Anderson County.

    “Reality hit me in the face,” she said Thursday.

  • Bearcats pull away from J-town,...

    (Editor's note: After the following story had been filed, Anderson County special teams coach Kevin Ray contacted The Anderson News to note that Steven Sims also got a piece of the blocked extra point.)

    Special teams really were special for Anderson County on Friday night.

  • Lafayette golfer ousts last...

    Lafayette's Kelly Crawford birdied the par-5 tenth hole at Wild Turkey Trace to defeat Anderson County's Taylor Gillis in a sudden death playoff for the final individual state golf tournament berth Tuesday evening.

    Crawford used a great approach shot, coming within about six feet of the pin, then sinking her first putt. Gillis had played the hole well, but missed her chance for a birdie when a 25-foot putt just missed the hole. Gillis, who had qualified for the state tournament last year, parred her hole but could only helplessly watch as Crawford sank her putt.

  • Happy ending this time

    ELIZABETHTOWN – The story was the same but there was a much sweeter ending this time.

    All season long, Anderson County's girls' soccer team had been playing the same act with the same ending – go against some of the state's best, often play the socks off them, only to have to settle for a “we'll get 'em next time” and the drive to learn from what might have gone wrong.

    Until Saturday, that is.

  • Bearcat deluge demolishes Grant

    Editor's Note: For more photos, see the slideshow at the bottom of our homepage.

    DRY RIDGE – By game time Friday night, the heavy rains had stopped at Grant County, but the deluge, Anderson County style, was only about to begin.

    On their way to a 41-0 romp, the Bearcats unleashed a third quarter torrent that drowned any inkling of a Grant miracle. Anderson scored three touchdowns in less than six minutes, finding the end zone twice on plays longer than 50 yards and blocking a punt for the other score.
