  • Anderson takes care of Spencer to keep undefeated district record intact

    The Anderson County girls’ soccer team further cemented its place atop the 30th District standings on Monday night with a 4-1 win over Spencer County.

    The win moves Anderson’s district record to 3-0 with one game remaining. It also guarantees Anderson a top two seed in next month’s district tournament with a good chance to secure the overall top seed.

    “A district win is always a good win,” Lady Bearcat head coach Jason Earnest said after the game.

  • Mistakes cost Bearcats against Mercer

    The Anderson County Bearcats tasted defeat in the regular season for the first time since October 2017 on Friday night with a 15-13 loss to Mercer County.

    The loss drops Anderson’s record to 2-1 on the young season. The Bearcats had multiple chances to come out with a win, but 18 penalties for 158 yards and five turnovers spoiled Anderson’s chances of winning.

    “In football, you got to bring some emotion and passion and some mental focus and we didn’t really do any of that tonight,” Bearcat head coach Mark Peach said after the game.

  • Bearcats take fourth at second invitational of season

    SHELBYVILLE – The Anderson County boys’ cross country team raced in its second invitational of the season this past weekend at the Shelby County Invitational and came away with a fourth place finish.

    The Bearcats scored 101 points, which was three points behind Collins, who grabbed the final podium spot.

    Finishing in first was Butler with 33 points, followed by Western Hills with 95 points.

  • Battle of the unbeatens

    After coming off a close 23-21 win over Madison Central, the Anderson County football team is gearing up for its next challenge: the Mercer County Titans.

    Just like the Bearcats, the Titans are 2-0 this season with a 21-point win over West Carter and a 13-point win over Allen County–Scottsville. Both games were bowl games played on a Saturday, meaning Mercer only has six days to prepare for Anderson while the Bearcats have the full seven-day window of preparation.
