  • Bearcats out to prove state...

    Everyone knows the magnitude of the challenge facing Anderson County on the football field Friday night.

  • Just hold the mushrooms

    We only thought Anderson County's football turnaround came about when Blake Curtsinger and Matt Sprague blocked a Bullitt Central extra point, in overtime, back on Oct. 8.
    Makes sense, you know. The Bearcats were 3-3, teetering on the brink of .500 or less. Since then, they are riding a six-game win streak, managed to win only the third district title in school history and have rolled to a pair of playoff wins for the first time since Kentucky started determining state football champions with a tournament in 1959.

  • Selection of All-Time Team tips...

    (Editor's note: This article contains some of the writer's personal observations and explanations of the “All-time team” selection process.)
    Selecting the best of the best to ever play basketball in Anderson County is not really a new idea. In the 25 years I have been writing about sports, I have been asked countless times, “How does this player compare to that player?”
    The question has come from Anderson CountyBearcat faithful and opposing fans alike.

  • Middle school teams key to...

    If you ever doubt the importance of a strong middle school sports program, just check back to March 10. That night, the Anderson County Middle School girls' basketball team took on Clay County in the high school state tournament.

    Or so went the joke that made its way around Lawrenceburg and found its way to Bowling Green eight months ago.

  • Hopes high for CAL season

    With seven returning players, including four starters, expectations are high for Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg basketball in 2010-11.

    The Rams have already gotten their season underway, splitting their first two games, in a year when the Rams will be playing two Australian national teams and several of the top Christian school teams in Kentucky.
    Christian Academy will also be playing Kentucky School for the Deaf, a public school.

  • Bearcats advance to regional...

    Anderson County scored three times in the first seven minutes, then went on to an impressive 42-7 win over visiting Bullitt  Central in the Class 5A, Region 2 football semifinal on Friday night.
    The Bearcats move on to play John Hardin for the regional championship next Friday. That game will also be played at Anderson.

  • Bearcats looking to make history...

    Not many will say that the current Anderson County football team is the best in the program's history. But Friday, the Bearcats can make their mark on the local annals.

  • Bearcats have mettle to keep...

    Mark Peach is a football coach, not a driver's ed. teacher. And for one round of the state football playoffs, that suits Anderson County just fine.
    “He told us we needed to keep our foot on the gas,” said Bearcat senior Todd DeWoody.

  • Bardstown ends Lady Mustang...

    There were few three-pointers which meant no three-peat.
    For the Anderson County Middle School girls' basketball team, there were not many two-pointers either. Bardstown took advantage with a 32-21 victory in the finals of the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference tournament, held Thursday at Anderson County High School.

  • Local runners team up, compete...

    Some people took the idea of running to the weekend literally on Oct. 22.
    That day, some Anderson County runners were part of a 12-person team that competed in the 200-mile Bourbon Chase, running a scenic route from the Jim Beam Distillery in Clermont, Ky. to Triangle Park in downtown Lexington.
    The trip went through Loretto, Bardstown, Lebanon, Springfield, Perryville, Danville, Stanford, back through Danville, Harrodsburg, Salvisa, Lawrenceburg and Versailles.
    The runners ran for the Kentucky Bourbon Council.
