  • Lady Bearcats win on Senior Day...

    The Anderson County girls' golf team finished its regular season Saturday at the West Jessamine Invitational, held on a rain-soaked Connemara Golf Course in Nicholasville.

    “We just had three available players, therefore we were not eligible for a team score,” Anderson coach Robert Hanks said.

    Christina Montgomery led Anderson with an 85 followed by Amy Kate Smith's 100 and Cheyenne Searcy shooting 102 over the 18 holes.

  • No need to push panic button

    It would be mighty easy to push the panic button on Anderson County football right now.

    It would also be foolish. Very foolish.

    Of course the-sky-is-falling crowd will be talking about everything coming down on the Bearcats harder than the rain that soaked Friday's homecoming matchup with Dunbar. They will like to point to the fact that Anderson has not lost three straight games, like it has this fall, since, well, who knows?

  • Russell named Mid-South’s...

    Campbellsville’s Jacob Russell has been honored at the Mid-South Conference Offensive Player of the Week, conference officials announced Monday.

    He joins Cumberlands’ (Ky.) Wendall Williams, Special Teams Player of the Week; and Faulkner’s (Ala.) Keylan Smith, Defensive Player of the Week, in this week’s performance awards.

  • Mustang runners romp at Berea

    The Anderson County Middle School cross country team romped to a win in the Berea Invitational meet Saturday, finishing in front of the defending middle school state champion, Beaumont.

    Anderson finished first with 29 points, followed by Beaumont's 41.

    Cross country scores are tabulated adding together the placings of the top five finishers from a team. A perfect score is 15, meaning a certain team had the first five finishers.

  • Dunbar, not rain, dampens...

    About all anyone needed for an explanation of Dunbar's 21-7 upset of Anderson County Friday night was found about a third of the way down the listing of team statistics.

    Total offense: Dunbar 306, Anderson County 140.

    On a rain-soaked field, Dunbar got its third straight win of the high school football season while Anderson went down to defeat for the third straight Friday night.

  • Improving Dunbar visits for...

    Anderson County might be having second thoughts about the game it selected for Homecoming 2015.

    You know the procedure for homecoming. In theory, schools are to look at the schedule and find the team that is most likely to be a piece-of-cake win, with the constraints of not having homecoming for the home opener or on Senior Night.

    For Anderson County, that selection was Paul Laurence Dunbar.

  • Communication woes sink Lady...

    If Anderson County learned anything in it’s own VolleySMASH Tournament, it has to be the reminder that consistency is a prerequisite for championships.

    While not considered a heavy favorite to take their own tournament title, Anderson was undoubtedly one of the teams capable of taking the title

    However, after rolling through pool play with three easy wins and winning a thrilling first game of the semifinal set Anderson fell apart in the second game as Lafayette jumped to a 6-1 lead and claimed a 25-15 win.

  • Bearcat golfers can cash in on...

    Every sport likes to talk about the home field advantage, but there is no edge like the one that awaits the Anderson County boys’ golf team Monday.

    The Bearcats host the Region 4 Golf Tournament at Wild Turkey Trace knowing they have a huge plus in their pocket knowing how the greens play, where the bunkers are and what clubs are most successful on each hole.

  • Lady Bearcats record season’s...

    Anderson County hopes to keep going lower and lower.

    In golf, of course, that means better and better as the Lady Bearcats turned in their best scores of the high school golf season last week.

    The highlight of the week came at Old Bridge Golf Course on Saturday when the Lady Bearcats placed fifth in the Boyle County Invitational with their lowest 18-hole total of the season. Anderson carded a 369 team total, a score that was only eight strokes out of third place and 22 strokes behind tournament champion Casey County.

  • Bearcats defeat old rivals on...

    Anderson County celebrated a successful Senior Day with a 152-163 win over Mercer County last Thursday at Wild Turkey Trace.

    Senior Zachary Toles led the Bearcats with a 37, followed by classmate Jordon Morgan and sophomore Hayden Elder, both with three-over 38s.

    Senior Brycen Fenwick played as Anderson’s No. 1 in the first varsity start of his career.

    Fenwick carded a 43, a score that Anderson coach Jim Beward blamed on “one bad hole.”
