  • Madison Southern ends Bearcat...

    BEREA – All season long, Andeson County had known that Madison Southern would be the best football team it would see. The Bearcats also knew that Carter Smith would be the best player to line up across from them during the 2017 regular season.

    It took all of 21 seconds for everyone watching Friday’s Class 5A, District 6 matchup to be reminded why.

  • Bearcat band marching for...

    It is just two more steps to the realizing the dream for the Anderson County High School Marching Band.

    The Marching Bearcats placed second in the Kentucky Music Educators Association quarterfinal competition, held at Madison Southern High School Saturday. Anderson placed .20 of a point behind perennially strong Grant County in the quarterfinal, commonly referred to as the regional meet.

  • Cats must win at Madison...

    It is a bit ironic to look back on the statewide football realignment that took effect in 2015.

    At the time, it was common to believe, based on recent history, that Anderson County would usually be the team to beat in the Kentucky High School Athletic Association's revamped district.

  • 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.
