Today's Sports

  • Undefeated and unbelievable

    FRANKFORT - The shirts extolling an undefeated football season had already been printed. A police escort greeting Anderson Countys Bearcats on their way home from Western Hills High School had already been lined up.

    And the heavily-partisan crowd most estimates had Anderson fans making up more than two-thirds of those in attendance danced, yelled, and made wild faces for the television cameras for the culmination of what has to be one of the most improbable perfect regular seasons in football history.

    Andersons 46-3 romp did not disappoint.

  • Repeat performance looms in...

    While Anderson County is making its first state football playoff appearance since 2002 - and hosting its first playoff game since 1996 - the Bearcats are very familiar with their first round opponent.

  • Principal's phone call...

    Hey, Ray Woodyard! Ya done good!

    Now please dont send this on to the English department at Anderson County High School, where you are principal. Just let us enjoy the moment, or maybe the current football season, which ain't over yet.

    Forget all those grammatical rules right now. Just let us enjoy all this.

  • Driven by lack of respect,...

    To a team already more than a little ticked off, Marion County made the ultimate mistake Friday night.

    The Knights, ranked third in Class 4A in one poll, got a bit carried away in some pre-game dancing and stomped on the Anderson County logo at mid-field during warm-ups.

    Some of the Bearcats witnessed the dissing.

    Nobodys gonna come in here and stomp on our logo, said Anderson captain Austin Corn.

  • Different Eras, Same Results

    The picture of Chris Franklin leaping and making a finger-tip interception to preserve the only perfect regular season in Anderson County football history is still vivid.

    With Bourbon County driving for what would have been the winning touchdown, Franklin came up with his tenth theft the most in Kentucky in 1986 at the Anderson 5-yard line. Standing on the sideline, cheering with the same gusto we see on the sidelines today was a sophomore tackle named Mark Peach.

  • Still perfect!

    The ultimate irony of the 2007 football season will come to pass Friday night in Frankfort.

    Anderson County will be shooting for regular season perfection while a member of the only other Bearcat team to achieve a 10-0 record will be trying to end the dream.

    Western Hills, coached by Don Miller, an Anderson County resident and a freshman on the 1986 Bearcats that went 10-0, will be trying to pull an upset of the heavily-favored Bearcats on the Wolverine Senior Night.

  • Big time

    LEXINGTON It didnt take an Andre Woodson to Stevie Johnson pass or the ESPN Game Day cameras to remind Brittany Hudson she had made the big time.

    It hit me with the first football game, Hudson said of her debut as a University of Kentucky cheerleader. It was just the crowd and everything about it. It was so much bigger..

    Big crowds. Big league.

  • Magics man

    Martin Young never as much as made a layup in high school but hes now a part of the NBA season that starts this week.

    Well, sort of.

    Now in his final year of study at Spencerian College, Young was invited to do some graphics work for the Orlando Magic over the summer. His task was to create player wallpapers for the team website.

    I didnt follow the NBA, Young says. I was more into college basketball.

  • Blitzing Bearcats prove to be...

    Best in district show.

    At least for now Anderson County is.

    The Bearcats clinched the top seed in the boys’ 25th District soccer tournament with wins over district foes Western Hills and Owen County last week. It is believed to be the first time the Bearcats, now 13-3 on the year and 4-1 in district play, have entered tournament play at the top of the pack.

    Anderson received a bye and will play either Frankfort or Franklin County in the tourney semifinals.

    The tournament is set to begin Monday, Oct. 8, at Woodford County High School.
