  • REBEL BOWL CHAMPS
  • Lady Rams take the court
  • Lady Bearcats split four matches...

    The scorecard will show that the Anderson County girls’ soccer team split four matches last week. The eyes, however, saw a team that is coming together and should be a force by the end of the year.

    The Lady Bearcats defeated district rival Spencer County and routed regional foe Owen County, but lost to highly-regarded Boyle County and North Oldham during the past week. Another contest against Western Hills, was scheduled for Monday night after press deadlines.

  • Morgan leads golf Cats over Sayre

    Anderson County overcame some early missed shots to nip Lexington Sayre 154-155 in boys’ high school golf action last Tuesday at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.

    “We were fortunate that Sayre’s five-man missed a par putt on the final hole,” said Anderson coach Jim Beward. “That said, I thought we hung tough despite some poor shots early and managed to get a couple of needed birdies later in the round.”

  • Friday Night Lights in...
  • Mind games: Never-say-die...

    Since that day he came home to lead the Anderson County High School football program, Mark Peach has preached the mind is where the champions are separated from those who are merely good.

    Friday night, it was no exception.

    The Bearcats were never seriously threatened in a 42-6 win over George Rogers Clark in the Bearcats' season opener. They methodically wore the visitors down with an offensive line that punished the Cardinals and a spread-the-wealth attack that saw three Bearcats run for at least 70 yards and four different runners reach the end zone.

  • FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Bearcats...

    The red, white and blue just runs through these guys.

    Every day. Every week. Every time they get together to play football, these Anderson County Bearcats are as red, white and blue as Toby Keith.

    They’d be just as at home with Rick Monday or Jim Craig as they would Nick Saban.

    Monday, playing for the Chicago Cubs, famously grabbed Old Glory from some protestors who had gotten on the field at Dodger Stadium and were intent on burning the flag.

    This ain’t no rag it’s a flag

    And we don’t wear it on our heads

    It’s a symbol of the land where the good guys live

    --Charlie Daniels

    It all started when an Anderson County football fan brought a large American flag to a game several years back.

  • Olympian's message to the...

    Staff Sgt. Dallas Robinson was not always a world-class athlete and he makes sure everyone hearing his message understands that.

    “I am one of six who got to compete in Russia as a soldier and an Olympian,” he said a few moments before addressing the Anderson County football team on Aug. 21. “I wasn’t the best athlete on my high school team. I was probably the third-best and ended up in the Olympics.”

  • Bearcats aiming for repeat title...

    Mark Peach knew the rich history of Anderson County football success – and its missing link – when he undertook the challenge of rebuilding the fortunes of Bearcat football in December, 2004.

    There had been many great teams. He’d even played on one that went undefeated in the regular season in 1986. There had even been a good number of Anderson clubs to make the top five in their respective classes from time to time.
