  • Football feast in Final Four...

    You can forgive members of the Anderson County football team if they eat like they are on a bit of a diet on the biggest eating day of the year.

    It was one of those nights where you couldn't just dig in.

    “Everybody was just sliding around out there,” said Anderson County lineman and team captain Landon Searcy.

    The target on Anderson County's back just got much bigger.

    When the first major statewide girls' basketball poll came out Friday, Anderson was at the top of the Courier-Journal rankings. The Lady Bearcats were a solid, but not overwhelming, choice as the top team in Kentucky in a vote of the state's coaches.

    Anderson garnered 39 first-place votes, well ahead of second-ranked Elizabethtown, which picked up 15. Anderson defeated E-town last December in the Franklin County tournament.

    Psssssst. Did you know Anderson County has a really good football team?

    In case you missed it, and from the looks of the crowds at Hollie Warford Stadium the last three weeks, there is a chance you might have, the Bearcats have put together an impressive run of resilience to earn its second Class 5A, Region 3 football championship in the last three years.

    It just so happens those are also the only regional football championships in school history.
