  • Flyers fly past Bearcats

    FRANKFORT – The Anderson County football team was blown out on the road at Franklin County on Friday evening, losing to the Flyers 53-19.

    The 34-point defeat was Anderson’s largest since losing to Meade County 48-0 in 2017. The 53 points surrendered was also the most the Bearcats have given up since letting Cooper score 61 on Anderson back in the 2014 state playoffs.

  • Bearcats looking for first district win against Collins

    The Anderson County boys’ soccer team hasn’t won a game since its season opener on Aug. 13, but it’ll attempt to change that tomorrow when it hosts the defending 30th District champs Collins in a district showdown.

    The Bearcats are currently 1-7-1 (0-2) and are riding a three-game losing streak. Anderson has lost its first two district games of the season to Woodford County and Spencer County, and will have one district game left on its schedule against Shelby County after Thursday’s game.

  • Lady Bearcats win first district game of season

    SHELBYVILLE – The Anderson County volleyball team won its first 30th District game of the season on Monday night with a 3-1 (18-25, 26-24, 25-20, 25-19) win over Shelby County.

    The victory also gives the Lady Bearcats 10 wins on the season with a 10-5 (1-2) record.

    Jina Sparrow led the Lady Bearcats in kills on the night with eight, followed by Anna Grace McGregor with five.

    McGregor also led Anderson in blocks with four.

    After the Lady Bearcats dropped the first set, they went on to win a competitive second set by a score of 26-24.

  • 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.

  • Bearcats secure first match win of season

    The Anderson County boys’ golf team won its first match of the season on Monday with a 160-190 victory over East Jessamine at Wild Turkey Trace.

    Taylor Hensley and Colby Martin tied for the lowest round of the day with an even-par 36 for nine holes. However, Hensley was declared the winner of the match due to a playoff scorecard.

    Other Bearcats also performed well in the match, as Layne Lilly and Job Bush both shot 44s while Tanner Cornish shot a 52.

  • Lady Bearcats compete at Butler Invitational

    LOUISVILLE – The Anderson County girls’ golf team competed at the Butler Invitational this past Saturday at Quail Chase Golf Club and came away with a ninth place finish out of 12 teams.

    The Lady Bearcats shot a 395 as a team, which is 20 strokes less than their season’s best tournament score.

    Anderson was 61 strokes behind tournament champion North Hardin, who beat Madisonville North Hopkins by eight strokes and Pulaski County by 10 to win the tournament.

  • Multiple Bearcats improve season’s best at Bluegrass invite

    LEXINGTON – The Anderson County cross country team competed at its third invitational of the season this past weekend at the Bluegrass Invitational, and the boys’ team came away with a 17th place finish.

    27 total teams competed in the race, which took place Masterson Station in Lexington. Anderson’s top five runners scored a combined 435 points, and was led by an 11th place finish by Mason Pierce, who completed the 5,000 meter course in a season’s best 16:49.33.

  • Quire blitzes Danville, Owen

    With weeks like last week, Shane Quire might not want the high school soccer season to end.

    The Anderson County junior ripped visiting Danville for four goals in last Thursday’s regular-season finale. The outburst came three days after another four-goal night against Owen County.

    Quire powered the Bearcats to an 8-4 win over Danville and a 7-0 thrashing of Owen County. In between. The Bearcats settled for a tie at Louisville Waggener last Tuesday.

    “When Shane is on his game, he is untouchable,” Anderson coach Khamisi Campbell said.

  • ‘I’m going to the state!’

    Hayden Elder just had a feeling things were going right.

    “He came off the green at No. 9 and said, ‘I am going to the state,’” Anderson County boys’ golf coach Nate Hollon said.

    Elder knew what he was talking about last Tuesday. The high school junior finished with a two-over 74 at Bardstown’s Maywood Country Club to earn his spot as one of three individual qualifiers for the state tournament. Elder will tee off for the state meet at Bowling Green Country Club Friday morning.

  • Bearcats return to field Friday

    It might seem to be trite or cliched, but it is true that Friday night, Anderson County plays its most important game of the 2016 football season to date.

    Forget the fact that Anderson has played an undefeated team in South Oldham or were the victim that snapped perennial power Boyle County’s three-game losing streak -- Boyle has not lost since -- or even that the Bearcats whipped rival Franklin County on Homecoming night.

    You can even overlook the fact that Anderson’s record stands at 2-4.
