  • GOLF: Bearcats earn state berth with sudden death win

    CAMPBELLSVILLE – It probably would not be a good idea to refer to golf as an “individual sport” around Anderson County.

    At least not any time soon, it wouldn't. For the Anderson County boys' team, earning a berth in the Kentucky high school state tournament was as much a result of teamwork as springing the halfback on third-and-long or finding a way to beat the full-court press.

  • SOCCER: Close is not enough for Lady Bearcats

    Anderson County was just a little late in getting to the game Saturday afternoon.

    South Oldham scored twice in the first seven minutes, then kept the Lady Bearcats at bay the rest of the way for a 2-1 victory in girls' soccer action.

    “We started off really slow,” Anderson coach Jason Earnest lamented. “We have had that happen quite a bit this year, for some reason. We weren't ready to play at the start of the game.

  • SOCCER: Simmons' hat trick leads Anderson past Shelby

     It's commonly called a “hat trick.”

    And when David Simmons went to work against Shelby County last Tuesday, there is little doubt his hat was black.

    He was the bad guy to Shelby. He was the executioner.

    Simmons scored three times over a seven-minute span to power Anderson County to a 5-2 win over its 30th District rival.

  • GOLF: Riley does it again!

    Anderson County golfer Kaitlyn Riley must like working overtime.

    The Lady Bearcat senior won a sudden-death playoff by sinking a birdie on the first playoff hole of the Region 7 Tournament, held at Danville Country Club Monday afternoon.

  • FOOTBALL: Second-half eruption gives Bearcats homecoming win

     A week full of special homecoming activities? Check.

    How about the now-traditional parade through downtown Lawrenceburg the night before what was supposed to be the annual pasting of some designated “W” on the schedule? Check.

    A big crowd taking everything in on Friday night? Check again.

    That presumed blowout of what is supposed to be the weakest team on the home schedule? Ah, let's wait a while on that one.

  • Old rivalry, new feeling

    There are old rivalries, then there is Anderson County vs. Woodford County.

    No, this is not the oldest continual football meeting in Kentucky. The actual Anderson-Woodford meeting really only dates to 1963, when Woodford opened. Then, there is a little matter of the teams taking a couple of breaks, first in the 1980s, then again from 2006-10.

  • Bearcats roll past Montgomery on homecoming

    Ross Cox scored three different ways while Zachary Carmichael ran for two touchdowns and threw for three more to lead Anderson County to a 48-20 win over visiting Montgomery County in Friday night football action.

    Tristin Ashburn caught two of Carmichael's touchdown passes as the Bearcats improved to 4-1 on the season and captured their District 6 opener.
