  • Bearcats rough up Shelby County

    After the heat index at Warford Stadium reached 103.4 degrees a little over an hour before kickoff last Friday night, the decision was made to delay the kickoff for 30 minutes to let things cool off.

    Anderson County didn't.

    The Bearcats pounced on Shelby County and never let up as they posted a 58-20 win in their home football opener.

  • Thursday morning roundup:...



    Woodford County scored twice inside the first 11 minutes of the second half to break open a close match and defeat host Anderson County, 3-0, in girls' soccer action Wednesday night.

    Woodford took control of the District 25 race with the victory and improved to 3-0 in district play and 5-2 overall on the year. Anderson is now 0-1, 2-4.

  • BLOG POST: Don't help me...

    Sorry, but I can’t be on the bandwagon with what seems to be nearly every other media outlet in the nation in getting up in arms over the Media Relations Department at the University of Kentucky mistreating a reporter for the Kentucky Kernel, the on-campus student newspaper.

    To read some of the comments from my colleagues in the media, UK Associate Athletics Director for Media Relations DeWayne Peevy barred Kernel reporter Aaron Smith from covering Kentucky Wildcat basketball, took his pen and paper and then exiled the young man to the KFC Yum! Center.

  • ‘Pat, we’ve got your back!’

    LOUISVILLE – The gesture was so simple. So sincere.

    And so fitting.

    Dawn Bogie was wearing orange last Friday. Make that Orange, as in Big Orange.

    “I made sure I was going to be wearing orange in honor of Pat,” Bogie said as she sat in the living room of her Louisville home.

  • COLUMN: Renewing a great rivalry

    You will have to forgive me if I am just a little more into things this week than usual.

    Anderson County and Shelby County will be lining it up on the football field for the first time since 2003. You can’t really say it is the renewal of a rivalry, since the schools have only played five times in history with Shelby taking four of them.

    The last one? Shelby won 56-8.

    The year before? Shelby 37, Anderson 10.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady...

    There are six weeks remaining in the girls’ high school soccer season, but there won’t be another night that will have more riding on it than tonight, Aug. 31.

    Woodford County comes to town to tangle with Anderson County a matchup of ranked teams, but more importantly, to get a leg up in the race for the top seed in the District 25 Tournament at the end of the campaign.

  • GOLF: Lady Bearcats looking to...

    Early in the season, nearly every team in every sport has high hopes for success.

    With a bit of luck and rapid development, those dreams could become reality for the Anderson County girls’ golf team.
    The Lady Bearcats return virtually the entire team from 2010, including a state qualifier, and have some promising newcomers in coach Todd Hyatt’s first year at the helm.

  • BOYS' SOCCER: Woodford...

    Woodford County scored three first-half goals, then kept host Anderson County at bay on the way to a 3-0 win in boys’ high school soccer action Saturday night.
    It was Anderson’s first loss of the season,

    but most importantly, the outcome gave Woodford a leg up on the District 25 seeding race.
    “All three (of Woodford’s goals) were excellent goals on their part,” said Anderson coach Brett Morris.
