    Kentucky 45, South Carolina 38

    The Wildcats got their first big win of the Mark Stoops era, twice rallying from 14 points down to shock South Carolina, 45-38, Saturday night in Lexington. Bud Dupree hauled in a batted pass and returned it 6 yards for the winning touchdown with 2:29 to play.

    Anderson County High School graduate Ross Cox, who grew up a Wildcat fan and says he stormed the field several times after big wins, got to live the experience as a player. Cox is a walk-on tight end for the Wildcats.

  • Anderson ladies have first home lacrosse match

    The Anderson County Lady Bearcats' lacrosse team played its first-ever home game Friday night, but suffered a 4-3 loss to Bryan Station in a match played at the Anderson County High School soccer pitch.

    Lacrosse is a new sport in Anderson County and is being organized as a club sport and not part of any school athletic department.

    The Anderson boys, also a club team, have been playing together for several seasons. Saturday, they routed host Elizabethtown, 16-1, as Thomas Barrett scored six goals.

  • SOCCER: Bearcat soccer shows improvement, splits four matches

    It might have been the best week of the year for Anderson County boys' soccer.

    The Bearcats split four matches last week, giving some hope for a strong push as the season heads into the final weeks.

    “We've been playing well lately, and that is down to a refocused commitment from the players after the disappointing loss to Somerset,” Anderson coach Khamisi Campbell said.

  • SOFTBALL: Collins slips past Lady Bearcats in extra innings

    About all that Monday's 30th District softball showdown revealed was it should be a close race between Anderson County and Collins.

    Of course, most who follow the high school game already knew that and there were few surprises in Collins' 4-2 win in eight innings.

    Collins pitcher Jeneca Thomas, a senior, limited Anderson to three hits and struck out five.

    But Thomas also walked three and got into a pair of late-inning jams when the Collins defense, committed three errors.

  • BASEBALL: 'We had that sucker in our hands'

    VERSAILLES – The only good thing about losing in 12 innings, like Anderson County did at Woodford County Saturday night, is that the baseball game was not played after Memorial Day.

    Then, taking a loss after blowing a 3-run lead or stranding a potental game-winning run 90 feet from home plate would be considered devastating. Saturday, however, it was merely a setback for an Anderson team that still has designs on its fifth regional championship.

    Disappointing, certainly.

  • BREAKING SPORTS NEWS: Bearcats get past Spencer in 12

    Alex Payton ripped a bases-loaded, one-out single in the bottom of the 12th inning to drive in Cole Sayre and send Anderson County to a 2-1 win over visiting Spencer County Tuesday night.

    It was the second straight 12-inning game for the Bearcats. The win over a district foe was also important for the 30th District Tournament seeding race.
