  • Carnahan Bowl next week

    The fourth annual Seth Carnahan Memorial Bowl is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12 when the Anderson County Middle School football team will host North Pulaski at the Anderson County High School field. Kickoff is set for noon.

    The game is dedicated to the memory of Seth Carnahan, an Anderson County Middle School player who drowned while playing with a friend in Elkhorn Creek in Scott County on Aug. 1, 2009. He was 13 years old.

  • Talkative Lady Bearcats spike...

    Anderson County volleyball might have put together its most impressive win of the young season when the Lady Bearcats whipped Nelson County, 3-1, on Aug. 24.

    Nelson, which had been the runner-up in the Pikeville Invitational Tournament the weekend before, had not suffered a loss in a 5-set match before the Lady Bearcats defeated the Cardinals convincingly. Nelson has been ranked as the No. 2 team in the Fifth Region.

    “Nelson is a good team and they have some talented players,” Anderson coach Bob Hardin said.

  • Mercer rivalry resumes Friday

    At one time, many years ago, it would have been difficult to find an inter-county high school rivalry with more passion than Anderson County and Mercer County.

    Unless, of course, it was Anderson and Harrodsburg.

    Those good ole days had everything that constitutes one of those make-your-season-with-a-win games.

    The series resumes Friday, Sept. 4, at Warford Stadum. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

  • Bearcats regroup, take Henry...

    Unpredictable might not do justice to the roller coaster ride the Anderson County boys’ golf team has been taking over the mid-point of the regular season.

    Last week, a pair of subpar nine-hole rounds preceded a championship in the Henry County Wildcat Invitational Tournament, held at Henry County Country Club.

  • ONLINE ONLY: Early goal fuels...

    Anderson County recorded its fourth straight win with a 4-0 whipping of Western Hills Monday night in Frankfort.

    Anderson got the only goal it would need less than a minute into the contest then pulled away to improve to 4-3 on the year.

    Kinsey Roberts gave the Lady Bearcats the early advantage with what coach Jason Earnest called “kind of a hustle/fluke type of goal.”

  • Bearcats grow, rally past Clark

    WINCHESTER – Growing up is never easy. It's not supposed to be, whether it is learning from that first bad grade, first breakup with a girlfriend or the first traffic accident.

    Life happens. You learn to deal with it.

    Football happens too. A team can deal with it in many different ways. The best ones grow up, learning from the mistakes – and the good things – that happen along the way.

  • Ample rain should mean bountiful...

    It is late August and already it is the third wettest summer on record for Frankfort and the fifth wettest for Louisville. Corn fields across most of Kentucky look robust as do pastures, yards and soybean fields.

    This portends excellent conditions for the dove season opener on Tuesday, Sept. 1.

  • ‘A good week until Saturday’ for...

    The Anderson County High School boys’ golf team scored a big win last Tuesday when the Bearcats defeated visiting Scott County, 153-160, at Wild Turkey Trace.

    Anderson moves to 2-0 in Central Kentucky Conference play.

    Jordon Morgan led all golfers with an even par 35 while Zachary Toles and Hayden Elder both fired 39s. Andrew Peach shot 40 while Brayden Nicholson’s 42 was dropped.

  • Mercer edges Lady Bearcats

    The Anderson County girls’ golf team dropped a close one Thursday at Bright Leaf Golf Course in Harrodsburg.

    Mercer County edged the Lady Bearcats, 190-193. Christina Montgomery and Kallie Jo Smith led Anderson with 47s while Cheyenne Searcy carded a 49. Amy Kate Smith shot a 50. Sophomore Ashley Duff, a new addition to the team, carded a 61 as the fifth score.

  • Lady Cats blue in Oldham soccer...

    The Anderrson County girls’ soccer team had a tough start to the season, dropping all three matches in last week’s Bluegrass Cup, held at Oldham County High School.

    The Lady Bearcats dropped a 6-5 decision to regional rival Oldham County in the seventh-place match Saturday.

    The contest was tied 5-5 at the end of regulation. Under tournament rules, there was no overtime, but the winner decided by a shootout. Oldham won the shootout, 5-4.

    Anderson’s Allie Johnson scored twice with Tate Thompson and Taylor Harley scoring.
