  • 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.

  • Bearcats set to embark on title...

    Anderson County embarks on what it hopes will be a high school football season filled with joy when the Bearcats host George Rogers Clark this Friday, Aug. 29 at Hollie Warford Stadium.

    Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

    A year ago, the Bearcats were sloppy with four turnovers and seven penalties but still managed to rout the Cardinals, 50-21, in the season-opener.

    Some things have changed since then as Anderson had key graduation losses, but Clark also has had to learn a new system as Mike Riddle has replaced Steven Collins as Clark head coach.

  • Lady Cats can’t finish, fall...

    Anderson County dominated play but had little to show for it in the season opener of the girls’ high school soccer team.

    Harrison County took advantage of a Lady Bearcat defensive mistake in the first half then withstood several Anderson threats to salvage a 1-1 tie last Wednesday at the Anderson pitch.

    A bizarre end to a nine-hole match and a strong tournament finish highlighted the week for the Anderson County boys’ golf team as they hit the mid-point of the high school season.

    Last Wednesday, the Bearcats thought they had lost, then realized they had won a match against Collins at the Shelbyville Country Club.

  • It’s been a real Peach of a run

    Those first few years of the Mark Peach Era around Anderson County football really were times that simultaneously boggled the mind and stretched the imagination.

    Sure, anyone who had remotely followed high school football in the years leading up to his return to his alma mater knew that Peach had been highly successful. He’d been defensive coordinator at Franklin-Simpson High School when the Wildcats made the state championship game.

    Carnahan Bowl date announced, donations being accepted

    The third annual Seth Carnahan Memorial Bowl will be held on Saturday, Sept. 13 at Warford Stadium on the campus of Anderson County High School, according to a news release.

    Anderson County Middle School will be hosting Madison Middle School that day in a double-header designated to raise money for the Mustang football program.

  • West Jessamine outlasts...

    West Jessamine rallied to win the final three sets after host Anderson County had taken the first to capture the season opener in high school volleyball action last Tuesday night.

    All four sets ended with a 25-23 score.

    “We played extremely well,” said Anderson coach Bob Hardin. “As a team, we had great energy coming out in our first game. Katy Carmichael and Baylee McKenzie both had a very hard kill and both hits made the crowd erupt with excitement and the kids fed off that.”

    A sure sign that summer is fading away is the emerging of the bid yellow kid haulers letting us all know that school is back in session in Anderson County as well as other surrounding counties and communities.

  • High school sports give best...

    You’ve got to love this time of the sports year.

    Even though Anderson County is waiting a week to kick it off, high school football gets under way in Kentucky this weekend.

    Most of the other fall sports at the high school level got started with the real thing this week, too. Golf has been hacking for about three weeks now and cross country takes to the hills very soon.

    Other than big post-season games, it is the best time to just sit back and watch.
