    Anderson County said a rousing good-bye to the Bearcat football seniors with a 40-12 win over Collins in the regular-season finale for both teams.

    Anderson finished the regular season at 7-3 and will host Scott High, of Kenton County, in the first round of the state Class 5A playoffs next week. Collins finished the regular season at 4-6 and will enter the Class 4A playoffs as a No. 3 seed.

  • Still a mystery

    What really happened that night in Shelbyville?

    I mean what really happened? For over 20 years, I have heard stories about that night when the Anderson Bearcats were robbed of their first district football championship.

    Or it was the night when the Bearcats played their collective hearts out but saw their first district championship slip through their fingers when an official had the courage to make a crucial call that nullified what might have been the winning touchdown.

  • Collins pays visit, unsure of...

    You can forget the notion that when Collins comes to town Friday night, Anderson County will be hosting a meaningless football game.

    For one thing, ever since he took over at his alma mater 10 years ago, Anderson coach Mark Peach has bristled at the suggestion that any game is meaningless. This one is no exception.

    “Collins is a quality football program,” Peach says. “This is a good opportunity for us to work on some things and get better prior to the playoffs.”

  • Fun again as Bearcats thump...

    You had to know something was up less than 90 seconds into Friday’s duel for a high seed in the state football playoffs.

    Anderson County quarterback Zach Carmichael lofted a rainbow over the East Jessamine defense, connecting with Chris Toomey for a 68-yard score.

    Given the explosive nature of the Anderson offense under Coach Mark Peach, the quick score was not that much of a surprise. No one, however, could have predicted the response.

    No one.

  • History lives in regional final

    VERONA – According to the experts, history teaches those valuable life lessons.

    And those lessons were in abundance Thursday night as Anderson County was going for its first girls’ regional high school soccer title.

    Trailing 3-0 at the half, Anderson coach Jason Earnest drew on his team’s past to tell his charges they were not hopelessly behind. He knew.

  • ‘Spent’ Lady Cats score early,...

    Anderson County overcame physical and mental fatigue to whip Gallatin County, 3-0, in the girls’ Eighth Region Soccer Tournament at Walton-Verona last Tuesday.

    “They were physically and emotionally spent,” Earnest said of his team, which had upset North Oldahm on penalty kicks the night before. “Gallatin was jacked up and ready to play.”
