  • ‘Tired’ Lady Bearcats finish...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ soccer team appeared to be tired throughout the Spine Center Classic at Boyle County High School last week, resulting in a subpar performance, according to head coach Jason Earnest.

    The Lady Bearcats lost to the host school, then slipped past North Laurel before losing to a Mercer County team they had beaten decisively earlier in the season.

    Anderson finished sixth in the eight-team tournament and now stands at 9-5-0 on the year with the regular season ending on Oct. 5.

  • Powerful Collins dominates ‘...

    SHELBYVILLE – There was a simple explanation for Collins’ volleyball win over Anderson County last Wednesday.

    “We were just outmatched tonight,” Anderson coach Ryan Brown said.

    Collins dominated in nearly every way possible to earn a 25-9, 25-17, 25-13 victory that underscored the strangle hold the Titans have had on the 30th District the last three seasons.

    Collins used a big front line to dominate play at the net and utilized strong passing and defense to sink the Lady Bearcats for the second time this season.

  • Lady Bearcat golfers driving for...

    The final week of the regular season is a time for Anderson County to make its last push to be ready for the Region 7 Tournament, to be held Tuesday, Sept. 26 at the Keene Run Golf Course near Nicholasville.

    The Lady Bearcats plan to celebrate Senior Night today, Sept. 20, with a match against Tates Creek at Wild Turkey Trace. Thursday, the Lady Bearcats travel to Woodford County and on Saturday, they will have their final tune-up for the regional tournament when they play in the First Tee Tournament at Lakeside Golf Course in Lexington.

  • Public meeting set concerning...

    The Fisheries Division of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources plans to lower Anderson County’s Beaver Lake in late fall, according to a news release. The plain is part of an effort to improve panfish and largemouth bass fishing in the 158-acre lake the news release said.

     Kentucky Fish and Wildlife will hold a meeting to outline the project and take questions from the public at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 26. The meeting will be held at the Anderson County Cooperative Extension office, 1026 County Park Road, Lawrenceburg.

  • Ducks Unlimited banquet announced

    Shelby County Ducks Unlimited will be hosting a fund-raising banquet on Friday, Nov. 10 at Claudia Sanders Dinner House in Shelbyville. Happy hour begins at 5:30 p.m. with dinner scheduled at 7, according to a news release. Prizes include guided hunts, up to 30 different guns, gear and much more, according to the release.

    For more information, consult the group’s Facebook page, “Shelby County Ducks Unlimited” or call 502-930-4232. Tickets to the banquet are available online at KYducks.org.

  • Showing mercy without a rule

    When girls’ soccer fans across the state checked the scores from last Wednesday night, the reaction to Anderson County’s 9-0 rout of Shelby County was probably one collective yawn.

  • Woodford stings Bearcats

    VERSAILLES – Even before Anderson County visited Woodford County last Thursday night, the Bearcats knew they were going against one of the best teams on the 2017 boys’ soccer schedule.

    The Yellow Jackets left no doubt with a methodical 7-0 thrashing at Falling Springs Park.

    Woodford jumped to a quick 3-0 lead, then added four more goals in the second half to go to 6-2 on the year. Anderson fell to 4-3.

    “Woodford is very talented on the ball,” Anderson coach Robbie Best said.

  • Franklin’s peak performance...

    It might be unrealistic to expect Anderson County to be perfect in the final six games of the high school football season.

    But it might happen if Mark Peach’s assessment of the Bearcats’ 20-0 win over Valley Friday night is correct.

    “We had a season full of mistakes in one game and still won 20-0,” Peach half-chuckled after his team improved to 3-1 on the season. “We had all those mistakes and still won 20-0. I don’t know how we did that.”

  • Bearcats, Flyers renew grid...

    They are no longer district rivals. They aren’t even in the same classification anymore, but that should mean little when Anderson County travels to Franklin County Friday night.

    The Bearcats and Flyers get together for the 20th renewal of an on-again, off-again series that dates to 1970. The series has been mostly on for the last 20 years with the teams putting up some memorable battles.

  • Hunting and fishing license...

    From staff reports

    The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission has recommended that the department increase prices for some resident Kentucky hunting and fishing licenses, according to a news release.

    It will be the first resident license price increase in more than a decade, and the first increase of the senior and disabled sportsman’s licenses since their inceptions in 1999.
