  • Leading the Break
  • Bearcats look to cool Dragons’...

    It is the rematch nearly everyone was expecting. It is just hitting a week earlier and in a different locale than originally called for.

    Anderson County visits South Oldham Friday, Nov. 14, for the second round of the state football playoffs. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

    It will be a rematch of a game played on the same field back on Sept. 5. South Oldham won that one 52-43. The Dragons jumped to a quick 14-0 lead, then fought off furious Anderson rally. The Bearcats tied things at 28, fell behind 42-28, then rallied again.

    Kentucky offers some of the finest deer hunting found anywhere, and the modern gun deer season stands as one of the most anticipated opportunities each year.

    Its allure draws many anglers away from the water in November.

  • First buck
  • Bearcats roll past Scott in...

    Brayden Russell caught two touchdown passes and ran for another score to lead Anderson County to a 32-13 win over Scott High in the first round of the state Class 5A playoffs Friday at Warford Stadium.

    Russell caught a 49-yard scoring strike from Zachary Carmichael just 55 seconds into the contest, giving Anderson a lead it would never relinquish.

  • These Eagles fly with a single...

    You have heard of old school, but Anderson County will have to deal with old school extreme in the first round of the state football playoffs.

    The Bearcats host Scott High on Friday, Nov. 7. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

    And if you like real throwback football – we are not talking about simply wearing a jersey style from the past – you will love Scott, according to Anderson coach Mark Peach.

  • Nothing stops ‘Cats on Senior...

    Neither mud, nor a little drizzle with snow mixed in, or even a defending state champion was going to make things miserable on Anderson County’s Senior Night last Friday.

    The Bearcats dominated Collins, 40-12 in the final tuneup for the state football playoffs. Anderson finished the regular season at 7-3, while Collins, last year’s state champion in Class 4A, ended at 4-6.

  • Roberts qualifies for state

    Anderson County High School cross country runner Kinsey Roberts has qualified for the state meet, to be held Saturday, Nov. 8, at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Roberts turned in a personal best of 22:05 in the Class 3A, Region 6 meet, held in Maysville Saturday.

    A freshman at Anderson County, Roberts will be running in the statewide race, which is scheduled to get underway at 1:30 p.m.

    Lexi Thompson also set a personal record for the 5K race, turning in a 26:29 time, but did not qualify for the state.

  • Volleyball season comes to...

    Anderson County’s volleyball season to remember ended with a night to forget last Monday.

    The Lady Bearcats saw their season come to an abrupt end when Simon Kenton whipped them in three straight sets in the first round of the girls’ Eighth Region Tournament at Carroll County High School.

    Simon Kenton moved into the regional semifinals, taking all three sets by identical 25-14 scores. Anderson saw what was arguably the finest season in the history of the Lady Bearcat program come to an end at 24-8.

    After earning his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Eastern Kentucky University, he was hired by Kentucky Fish and Wildlife in 2007 to work in the deer and elk program.
