  • Second half surge lifts Mustangs...

    LOUISVILLE -- The Anderson County Middle School football team appeared to be in deep trouble.

    Already trailing Louisville Kammerer,12-8, early in the third quarter, the Mustang defense was backed up inside its own 10-yard line when Caleb Puckett intercepted a pass then raced 95 yards untouched for a touchdown.

    Even though the Mustangs failed on the conversion attempt, everything had changed.

  • Bearcats rout Montgomery,...

    MOUNT STERLING -- You know things are going right on the football field when a team makes a turnover on the opponent’s side of the field but gets the ball back five yards further upfield on the very next play. 

    That’s what it was like for Anderson County Friday night. Actually, saying things were going right for the Bearcats would be like saying The Rolling Stones are a band.

    It’s a monumental understatement. 

  • WORKING OVERTIME TO CELEBRATE

    SHELBYVILLE – Dalton Wells didn’t have to wait to start the celebration.

    The Anderson County High School senior drove his penalty shot to the right side of the net. Before it had even nestled in the net, Wells had begun ripping his shirt off to set off a wild celebration never before seen in the history of Bearcat soccer.

    Wells’ shot gave Anderson a 4-2 lead with one kicker left in a tie-breaker shootout with host Collins in the 30th District tournament championship match last Thursday.

  • No question! Lady Bearcats hold...

    SHELBYVILLE – Anderson County knew it was just a matter of time. What the Lady Bearcats didn’t know was how things would break their way in the championship match of the 30th District Soccer Tournament last Thursday at Collins High School.

  • Bearcats host Madison Southern,...

    Even with the multitude of setbacks that have plagued the Anderson County High School football team this season, the Bearcats are in a position to capture their first district championship since 2013 Friday night.

    It won’t be easy.

    Madison Southern, the defending Class 5A, District 6 champ, has been the favorite to repeat all season and has given no reason to think otherwise. The Eagles have won six of eight games -- the losses were to Tates Creek and Pulaski County -- and have won their two district games by identical 49-7 scores.

  • District titles on line as...

    The Anderson County High School soccer teams look to add some hardware to the school's trophy case Thursday night but do so from different perspectives.

    The Bearcats and Lady Bearcats play the teams from Collins High School in the 30th District championship matches at Collins. The girls kick off at 6 p.m. with the boys going at 8.

    The Anderson teams have vastly different histories.

  • BEARCATS SWARM YELLOW JACKETS

    Two words were all Mark Peach needed to describe what he had just seen.

  • A hug to remember

    I really didn’t know what to expect that night I approached Bobby Keith for some comments.

    Keith’s Clay County basketball team had just defeated a very good Anderson County club back in February of 1994.

    Clay County was, well, Clay. The Tigers weren’t that far removed from the great teams led by Richie Farmer in the late 1980s. Clay just reloaded and was, as usual, the best team in the mountains. Clay would go on to win the 13th Region that year, the 16th time in 22 seasons the Tigers would be making a trip to the Sweet 16.

  • A Senior Night celebration

    Senior Nights are supposed to be a night of celebration.

    Anderson County was able to do just that Monday night when the Lady Bearcats put together one of the their better outings of the volleyball season as they downed Owen County, 25-17, 25-21.

    The Lady Bearcats were impressive defeating a team that was shooting for its 20th win on the season. Owen, which will enter the post-season undefeated in 31st District play, fell to 19-11 Monday.
