  • Bearcats escape with win over...

    The computer rankings  predicted an Anderson County blowout. Nearly everyone that watches high school football agreed with them.

    The stat sheet indicated the Bearcats dominated South Oldham.

    But the only place where things really matter – the scoreboard – told the story of Anderson struggling with a South Oldham team that was supposed to be little more than a formality.

  • Bearcat mudders focused,...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Don't tell the fans, but the Anderson County football team might pray for rain every Friday until the season ends.

    We aren't talking about a little drizzle. Give the Bearcats one of those good, old-fashioned torrential downpours that leaves the field a mess so they can do the same to some poor opponent.

    Bullitt Central was the latest victim. It was supposed to be a close one, one of the top games in Kentucky, matching a pair of unbeaten teams.

    Instead, it was one of the most dominating performances by an Anderson team in recent memory.

  • Anderson girls' soccer...

    FRANKFORT – Taylor Clark scored four goals in seven minutes to power a first-half explosion that propelled Anerson County to a berth in the Region 13 Tournament, to be played next week.

    Anderson registered an 8-0 win over Franklin County in the 25th District Tournament semi-finals Thursday night at Frankfort's Sower Soccer Complex.

  • THE SPORTS BUZZ for Oct. 16:...

    LEXINGTON -- After catching up on some local things, it's time to share some thoughts on the UK Basketball Media Day.

    When I made the trip to Lexington Thursday, it was the first time I had attended Media Day in several years – Tubby Smith was coaching at the time – but I have been to quite a few, dating back to Eddie Sutton's first. That day, Bill Keightley took me around Memorial Coliseum to places I never dreamed I would be and probably never would have seen if not for someone who went to high school with my mother.

    Why do I bring up Mr. Wildcat?

  • Girls' soccer roundup

    Anderson County High School senior Kara Yeaste became the girls' soccer program's all-time assist leader Thursday night against Franklin County. Yeaste now has 44 assists in her career, one more than Jessica Mullins and Paige Clark.

    Previously unreported games

    Anderson ended the regular season last week with impressive wins over Shelby County and John Hardin and was leading highly-regarded Tates Creek when the game was called because of field conditions.

    The Lady Bearcats whipped visiting Shelby, 3-0, on Oct. 5.

  • Russell leads 5A passers, Cox...

They are sixth and fourth when all classes are combined. Anderson is very prominent in the statewide football statistics, released by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association on Friday.

  • Shelby holds off Lady Bearcat...

    EMINENCE -- Shelby County dominated play early, then held off a furious Anderson County rally to take the 28th District volleyball championship Tuesday night at Eminence High School.

    After easily winning the first game of the best-of-three set, Shelby pulled out to a 22-14 lead in game two. Anderson, however, pulled within 24-22 before Shelby put things away.

    “We did not have enough people involved in our offense,” aaid Anderson coach Jason McDannold.
