  • AMS runners place second in CKC

    From staff reports

    The Anderson County Middle School cross country team turned in one of its best showings ever in the Central Kentucky Conference meet, held last Tuesday in Somerset.

    The Mustang boys finished second to Woodford County, missing the championship by two points. The scores were tied after the first five runners for each team meaning a sixth score had to be counted, giving Woodford the narrow win.

  • Lady Mustangs eyeing state title

    There aren’t many questions about the Anderson County Middle School girls’ basketball team.

    The Lady Mustangs are good. Very good.

    Or more to the point, they are RRRRREALLYYYYYYYYYY good. As in one of the best middle school teams in Kentucky.

    About the only uncertainty at this point is what the Lady Mustangs’ record really is. “We are 20-1,” Lady Mustang coach Stacy Briscoe said last week from in her office at Emma B. Ward School. “We lost to Clay County but that was really a scrimmage.”

  • Dunbar speed sinks battered...

    LEXINGTON -- Everything happened so quickly for Dunbar last Friday.

    The Bulldogs enjoyed a happy Homecoming when they scored 19 unanswered points to defeat Anderson County, 40-21, in high school football action at Jon Akers Stadium. Both teams now stand at 2-4 on the year.

  • Hamrick to lead Campbellsville...

    Anderson County resident Kristen Hamrick has been named to lead the women’s tennis program at Campbellsville University. The school announced Hamrick’s hiring in a news release last Thursday.

    Hamrick, who played tennis at Campbellsville, leaves her post as the girls’ tennis coach at Anderson County High School, a position she has held for the last two seasons.

    At Campbellsville, Hamrick will be the first full-time women’s tennis coach in the school’s history, according to the release.

  • Little perspective in big-time...

    For years, the proper role of athletics in academic settings has been debated, sometimes vociferously.

    On one hand, you have people that point to the Ivy League as the perfect way. There are no athletic scholarships and guys who wear those jerseys from Harvard, Yale and Princeton are more likely to be CEO of a multi-national company than selling Nikes around the globe just because they can shoot the rock or dance to the end zone.

  • Lady Bearcat golfers end season...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ golf team saw its season come to an end Monday with the Lady Bearcats placing seventh in the 20-team Region 7 Tournament at Juniper Hills in Frankfort.

    Anderson carded a team score of 398, well behind champion Madison Central’s 347. Henry Clay also qualified for the state with a 351.

    Cheyenne Searcy led Anderson with an 88 in her final high school match. Searcy also finished tied for seventh individually.

    Searcy made a strong bid to keep playing.

  • Best in Berea
  • Setting the pace
  • Lady Bearcats fourth in Volley...
  • Rose sticks FG in OT, lifts KSU...

    Anderson County resident Bill Rose nailed a 23-yard field goal in overtime to give Kentucky State University’s football team a 17-14 win over Central State in the Circle City Classic at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Saturday.

    Kentucky State rallied from a 14-0 deficit entering the fourth quarter. The Thorobreds scored twice, sending the game to the extra period.

    After Kentucky State stopped Central State, the Thorobreds drove to the 6-yard line before calling on Rose to end things.
