  • Morgan leads Anderson golfers...

    Jordon Morgan shot an even-par 35 to lead Anderson County to a 158-189 win over Western Hills in a high school golf match last Tuesday at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.

    Hayden Elder fired a 37 as the Bearcats won a Central Kentucky Bluegrass Conference match.

    “We played OK, but not great,” Anderson coach Jim Beward said. “The wind made the course play tougher than normal.”

  • Marching Bearcats take title in...

    The Anderson County High School marching band saw the 2015 season get off to a rousing start when the Marching Bearcats took the grand champion honors in the Warrior Classic, hosted by Southwestern High School, near Somerset.

    Anderson County, which competes in Class 4A in Kentucky Music Educators Association contests, outpointed South Laurel, a 5A school, by 6.5 points for the overall championship. Anderson defeated Pulaski County by 8 points to win Class 4A.

    Anderson also won the overall color guard and percussion competitions.

  • Bearcats defeat Owen for season’...

    Anderson County picked up its first win of the boys’ soccer season Monday, romping past host Owen County 10-2. No other details were available at press time. Anderson is now 1-6-2 on the year.

  • Lady Bearcats squander big lead...

    A trip to the lake region of Kentucky was not what the doctor ordered for the Anderson County High School girls’ soccer team over the weekend.

    The Lady Bearcats blew a 3-0 lead as host Marshall County rallied to tie Anderson in the Marshall County Classic Saturday. Later that day, the Lady Bearcats turned in a poor performance as McCracken County whipped the Lady Bearcats, 5-2.

    “Playing two games in one day was probably not a great idea with this team,” Anderson coach Jason Earnest said.

  • Lady Cats score district win...

    Anderson County simply needed to beat Shelby County last Tuesday.

    The Lady Bearcats overcame an opening set loss to defeat the visiting Lady Rockets, 3-1, last Tuesday.

    Anderson took control in the third game, going on to win, 25-17, then rolled in the fourth set, 25-11. The Lady Bearcats broke open a close match behind a stellar service from senior Taylor Phillips early in the decisive frame. Phillips took over with her team in front 8-6. By the time Shelby solved things with a timeout, Anderson was leading 14-6.

  • Backup kicker a ‘shining star’...

    A season that had already seen Anderson County football suffer more than its share of crucial early-season injuries took a strange turn last week when the Bearcats were without kicker David Simmons at Boyle County.

    Simmons, who had demonstrated the power to kick long, was injured while playing for the school’s soccer team last Tuesday at East Jessamine.

  • City council approves 2% fee on...

    Buying alcohol in the city of Lawrenceburg will get more expensive this coming January.

    The city council on Monday gave final approval to a 2 percent regulatory fee on all alcohol sales within city limits.

    The vote was unanimous.

    The fee will not apply to establishments that sell alcohol outside of city limits, including the convenience stores and restaurants near Eagle Lake Convention Center or the convenience stores located near the Bluegrass Parkway.

  • Boyle pounds Bearcats

    DANVILLE – The clash of two of Central Kentucky's best high school football teams was over early Friday night.

    Boyle County scored 36 unanswered points in the first and second quarters, then coasted to a 43-21 win over visiting Anderson County Friday night.

    Boyle, ranked No. 1 in most Class 3A polls, improved to 4-0 on the year while Anderson suffered its first loss after three victories.

    Lightning forced the teams off the field during pre-game warmups, delaying the start of the contest about 35 minutes. It made little difference.

  • Scheduling sure is different...

    One of Mark Peach’s favorite refrains the last few years has been something along the lines of “We aren’t playing Breckinridge County or Clinton County any more.”

    It’s not that Peach is disparaging the people at those high schools. He’s simply looking back at his second season at the helm of Anderson County football.


    The heavens put on quite a show Friday night, but the only deluge to hit Warford Stadium was the Anderson County football team.

    The Bearcats took all of three plays to score first, then put another twist in the meaning of “total domination” as they rolled past Mercer County, 55-14, in a high school football game called after three quarters because of lightning spotted on the horizon.
