  • Montgomery's performance,...

    Notes written while dodging remnants of Nate …

    While Friday night’s loss to Montgomery Count was a huge disappointment for the Anderson County High School football team there were a few areas of that contest that illuminated just how special high school sports can be.

    On a night when Anderson turned the ball over seven times, it was still interesting to watch Montgomery run the old school Wing-T offense to perfection and see sophomore Trey Ishmael direct an attack based on fakes, reverses and misdirections.

  • Turnovers take down Bearcats

    Anderson County beat the wrong team last Friday night.

    The Bearcats knew they would have to beat Montgomery County to clinch a home game in the first round of the upcoming state playoffs, but instead, the Bearcats beat themselves with seven turnovers and some ill-timed penalties on Bob Ware Field.

  • Lady Bearcat volleyball season...

    Collins showed why it was going for a fourth consecutive 30th District championship Monday night. The Lady Titans overpowered Anderson County in straight sets (25-12, 25-13,25-7) to advance to the district final Tuesday.

  • Late Spencer goal sinks Bearcats

    SHELBYVILLE – The end of Anderson County's boys' soccer season happened so quickly and so suddenly that describing the Bearcats as stunned s not accurate.

  • Senior Night emotions get best...

    The Anderson County High School volleyball team was unable to overcome the emotions of Senior Night in dropping a 3-0 decision to Bardstown Bethlehem Thursday night.

    Bethlehem took advantage of Anderson's unforced errors to claim a 25-21, 25-15, 25-18 win.

    Anderson, playing on the home court for the final time this season, entered 30th District Tournament play with a 10-12 record while Bethlehem finished its regular season at 12-9.

  • Collins ends Lady Bearcat...

    Anderson County might be wishing it had just left the championship round of the 30th District girls' soccer tournament at Collins.

    While Anderson had been scheduled to host all of the tournament last week, the heavy rains associated with the remnants of Hurricane Nate left the Bearcats' home field unplayable last Monday and Tuesday. The school administrators and the rest of the schools in the district agreed to move the semifinal round to Collins, which has an artificial turf.

  • Surprise showdown

    Back when practice started in July, the number of people who foresaw Anderson County and Montgomery County playing a football game of major significance on Oct. 13 was probably roughly equal to those who thought the Cleveland Indians, with a record of 47-42 at that time, would win 22 straight.

  • Marching Bearcats to stage...

    The Anderson County High School marching band will present its 2017 program, “Untouchable” in a free community performance on Bob Ware Field, Saturday, Oct. 14.

    The band’s show is scheduled for 8 p.m. The Lawrenceburg Academy for Performing Arts is set to perform at 7:45 p.m.

    Prior to the musical performance, the band will be hosting a vendor fair, a silent auction and face painting. Pulled pork, hot dogs and a bake sale are available for concessions.

  • Rose, Riley Named Athletes of...

    University of the Cumberlands football kicker Joe Rose and women’s golfer Kaitlyn Riley have been selected as the inaugural Wendy’s Athletes of the Month, according to a news release.

    Both are graduates of Anderson County High School and are seniors at the university.

    The award will be presented by the school and the restaurant chain to one male athlete and one female athlete each month, according to the release.

  • Errors cost Lady Cat volleyball...

    Some missed chances here and a few mistakes there doomed Anderson County in its bid to throw the 30th District volleyball race into chaos Friday night.

    Needing a win to force a three-way tie for second place in the district tournament seedings, the Lady Bearcats fell just short in a 26-24, 25-17, 25-18 loss at Shelby County. The outcome snapped a four-match winning streak and dropped Anderson to 10-9 on the year. Most significantly, it dropped the Lady Bearcats to 1-5 in district play and the No. 4 seed in the tournament.
