  • Lady Bearcat golfers show marked...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ golf team shaved 14 strokes off its previous tournament best but still finished 11th out of 19 teams in the Gene Hilen Invitational, held Saturday at Juniper Hills Golf Course in Frankfort.

    The showing capped a solid week by the Lady Bearcats as they enter the second half of their regular season.

  • Elder’s strong round leads...

    Hayden Elder was well ahead of the pack last Tuesday.

    The Anderson County High School junior carded a 39 to earn medalist honors and lead Anderson to a 179-191 win over Western Hills in boys’ golf action at Juniper Hills Golf Course in Frankfort.

    Elder’s score was six strokes better than Western Hills’ top guns, Bradley Hughes and Chance Burrell, both of whom tallied a 45. Anderson’s Andrew Peach came in a 46.

  • Collins stuns Lady Bearcats with...

    The storm that came through town last Wednesday night did not do nearly as much damage to Anderson County as Collins’ lightning.

    Collins scored three times in the final 17:30 to stun Anderson County, 3-2 in girls’ soccer action on the Anderson pitch. It was the first time Collins had ever beaten Anderson and put the Lady Bearcats, the two-time defending district champions, in a major hole to earn the district tournament’s No. 1 seed for the third straight year.

  • Bardstown, Collins sweep volley...

    Bardstown and Collins used athleticism and experience to sweep a pair of high school volleyball matches from Anderson County last week.

    Thursday, Anderson could never put together a decisive run in dropping a 3-0 match to Bardstown. The Lady Bearcats rarely led in any of the three sets and saw Bardstown deliver the crushing blows in the second and third games in similar fashion.

  • Lady Mustangs take tournament...
  • Mercer explodes in second half,...

    HARRODSBURG – Mercer County exploded in the final 13 minutes to score a 41-31 win over Anderson County in high school football Friday night.

    After Anderson County quarterback Cade Cotton connected with fullback Bryndon Labhart for a 31-yard scoring pass, the Bearcats seemed in control with a 17-7 lead on a team that had experienced major difficulties moving the ball.

    Only 1:21 was left in the third quarter.

  • Bearcats getting their kicks...

    We’ve had all of two weeks to see what we think of the 2016 edition of Anderson County Bearcat football.

    Two games. Just 96 minutes. That’s 106 offensive plays, 98 defensive snaps and a few kicks. It’s really not enough to get a clear picture of what to expect when the Bearcats’ district play opens on Oct. 7 with a home game against Woodford County. But there have been a few things that are apparent about this Anderson team, some good, some not so good and some wait-and-see.

  • Franklin, Cotton lead Cats to...

    Of all the big plays Blake Franklin made in Anderson County’s 24-14 win over George Rogers Clark Friday night, the game-changer might have been one in which he recorded no statistic.

    That’s saying something, since the junior running back-defensive back scored three touchdowns and a two-point conversion, gained 133 yards rushing and broke up a pass. There is no truth to the rumor that Franklin lined the home field last week and took up tickets before the game.

  • Defensive mistakes cost Lady Cats

    The best thing for Anderson County about its girls’ soccer match with Harrison County last Wednesday was it was not a loss for the Lady Bearcats.

    The worst thing? It wasn’t a win on a night when Anderson seemed to dominate.

    Harrison County’s Kelby Gaunce outmaneuvered three Anderson defenders then shot a bullet past Anderson goalie Billie Clark with 19:12 to play, leaving a frustrated Anderson team settling for a 2-2 tie in its home opener.

  • Chrisman Memorial 5K set next...

    The inaugural Eric Chrisman Memorial 5K Walk/Run will be held on Saturday, Sept. 10 according to a news release.

    The run, which will begin at 5:30 p.m., will benefit the Eric Chrisman Scholarship Fund and the Kentucky State Police Trooper Island.

    The Chrisman Scholarship Fund benefits students attending the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg. Chrisman, who had graduated from Christian Academy, was killed in an auto accident while responding to a call in Livingston County in June 2015.
