  • Dunbar speed sinks battered...

    LEXINGTON -- Everything happened so quickly for Dunbar last Friday.

    The Bulldogs enjoyed a happy Homecoming when they scored 19 unanswered points to defeat Anderson County, 40-21, in high school football action at Jon Akers Stadium. Both teams now stand at 2-4 on the year.

  • Little perspective in big-time...

    For years, the proper role of athletics in academic settings has been debated, sometimes vociferously.

    On one hand, you have people that point to the Ivy League as the perfect way. There are no athletic scholarships and guys who wear those jerseys from Harvard, Yale and Princeton are more likely to be CEO of a multi-national company than selling Nikes around the globe just because they can shoot the rock or dance to the end zone.

  • Lady Bearcat golfers end season...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ golf team saw its season come to an end Monday with the Lady Bearcats placing seventh in the 20-team Region 7 Tournament at Juniper Hills in Frankfort.

    Anderson carded a team score of 398, well behind champion Madison Central’s 347. Henry Clay also qualified for the state with a 351.

    Cheyenne Searcy led Anderson with an 88 in her final high school match. Searcy also finished tied for seventh individually.

    Searcy made a strong bid to keep playing.

  • Best in Berea
  • Setting the pace
  • Lady Bearcats fourth in Volley...
  • Rose sticks FG in OT, lifts KSU...

    Anderson County resident Bill Rose nailed a 23-yard field goal in overtime to give Kentucky State University’s football team a 17-14 win over Central State in the Circle City Classic at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Saturday.

    Kentucky State rallied from a 14-0 deficit entering the fourth quarter. The Thorobreds scored twice, sending the game to the extra period.

    After Kentucky State stopped Central State, the Thorobreds drove to the 6-yard line before calling on Rose to end things.

  • Band has big day at Nelson...

    From staff reports

    The Anderson County High School Marching Band had a big day at the Pageant of Bands, held Saturday at Nelson County High School in Bardstown.

    The Marching Bearcats swept Class AAAA honors, taking first place, Best Colorguard and Best Percussion.

    Overall, however, Anderson was named Reserve Grand Champion, finishing behind Bourbon County by less than a point.

    Anderson took the top prize in the Percussion category.

  • Hobbled Lady Bearcats drop three...

    One probably should not be surprised if those around Anderson County girls’ soccer don’t know whether to head to the pitch or the hospital these days.

    Hobbled by injuries all season, the Lady Bearcats went winless in the Boyle County Invitational Tournament last week, losing all three contests.

  • Mustangs roll in Carnahan Bowl

    The Anderson County Middle School football team remained undefeated with a 30-8 win over East Oldham in the annual Seth Carnahan Memorial Bowl, held Saturday at Anderson County High School.

    Anderson dominated from the outset, getting on board quickly when Michael Duncan returned an interception 40 yards for a touchdown on East Oldham’s first possession. Everett Marrett followed with a 35-yard touchdown run and the rout was on.

    Anderson scored again on a 45-yard pass from Jagger Gillis to Tyler Puckett and a 50-yard run from Marrett.
