  • Bearcats roar in regular season...

    Anderson County scored three times in the first four minutes, then cruised to an easier-than-expected 36-7 win over Collins in high school football action Friday night at Hollie Warford Stadium.

    The Bearcats needed just five plays to score after the opening kickoff, then converted fumbles on Collins' first two plays from scrimmage into quick touchdowns to put the Titans in a hole from which they could not escape.

  • Bearcats not same team that...

    It seems so long ago that I was previewing what was considered one of the top high school football games scheduled in Kentucky early last month.

    It was common to talk about that game on Sept. 11 as “Anderson County, ranked third in Class 5A, visits Class 3A’s top-ranked team, Boyle County” or use a phrase very similar to it.

    At the time, Anderson was 3-0 and claimed a very good South Oldham team as one of its victims. We are talking the same South Oldham that has not lost since the opener.


    BEREA -- The sign outside Madison Southern High School was simple and to the point: “Report cards go home 10/23.”

    We don’t know what grades the Eagles earned in their math or social studies classes but on the football field, the grade entered on Oct. 23 was an A-plus.

    Madison Southern, picked by most to finish at the bottom of the Class 5A, District 6 standings before the season started in August, whipped Anderson County, the pre-season favorite, 43-28 for the Eagles’ first district title in 27 years of football.

  • Bearcats host Collins on Senior...

    When Anderson County and Collins agreed to play a football series, beginning in 2013, it had the promise of being one of Kentucky’s best rivalries.

    Unfortunately, circumstances – different ones each year – have prevented the anticipated classics.

    Anderson County basketball season is right around the corner. With an impressive 29-19 record over the past two seasons, the Bearcats and head coach Glen Drury look to continue to turn heads.

    The Bearcat basketball team, much like this year’s football team, is having what would be considered by some as a rebuilding year. Former star point guard Austin Cummins continued his career at Anderson University, an NCAA Division II school in South Carolina.

    Rising country music artist J.D. Shelburne is scheduled to make an appearance at Anderson County’s Cat Madness on Saturday, Nov. 21.

    Cat Madness will feature a scrimmage between the Anderson County and Woodford County boys’ basketball teams,.

    Shelburne, a Spencer County native, is making inroads in Nashville with his latest song, “Hometown.” The video was trending No. 1 on CMT.com last week.
