  • Hyatt has big round at national...

    Anderson County resident Anna-Marie Hyatt shot a 4-over 76 in the second round of the National Christian College Athletic Association golf tournament, held last week at Panama City, Fla. Hyatt, playing for Campbellsville University, shaved 10 strokes off her first-day score to finish in a tie for 36th place in the tournament, held at the Hombre Golf Club.

    Campbellsville finished eighth in the nine-team tournament with a two-day total of 639. Dallas Baptist won the title with a 596.

    The Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort is hosting the fifth annual Running Wild Trail Run Saturday, Nov. 2. Proceeds from the run will benefit education efforts at the center, according to a news release.

  • OUTDOORS: Fall a favorite time...

    My favorite time of the year has arrived once again. I have just returned home from a business trip to Gettysburg, Pa., and actually enjoyed the eight-plus hour drive through the mountains of West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

    The brilliant fall colors of the leaves can be somewhat distracting when you’re driving not to mention the wildlife. I truly have what some might call a “turkey neck” or “owl head” when driving through such wildlife-rich country.

  • FOOTBALL: Life is good at the...

    NICHOLASVILLE – Oh, to have the life of a powerhouse.

    It's a life that can have its share of blowouts, like Anderson County's 41-7 romp past East Jessamine Friday, and banter.

    “I was happy for Searce,” Bearcat defensive end Darius Harvey said while cracking a huge smile. “He just didn't score like me.”

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Simon Kenton...

    The tears were real for the Anderson County girls' soccer team last Monday night.

    They flowed after host Simon Kenton scored on what the Lady Bearcats felt was a questionable foul call that resulted in a free kick, which Simon Kenton converted, with seven minutes to play in the opening round of the Eighth Region Tournament.

    It would turn out to be the only goal of the game.

  • Bearcats take care of business...

    Anderson County left no doubt concerning its district superiority with a rousing 41-7 win over East Jessamine Friday night in Nicholasville.

    Anderson improved to 8-1 on the year and finished the district portion of its schedule unbeaten at 5-0. It is the first time Anderson has been perfect in district play since the 2007 season that saw Anderson go unbeaten in the regular season.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats look for high...

    All season long, Anderson County football coach Mark Peach has preached a two-word sermon to his team:

    No excuses.

    There would be no excuses of the Bearcats going against the toughest schedule they have faced since Peach arrived in 2005, and one of the toughest in school history.

    There would be no alibis given for poor field conditions or, heaven forbid, letdowns.
    However, it would appear a letdown would be Anderson's biggest enemy Friday when the Bearcats travel to East Jessamine for the final district game of the season.

  • FOOTBALL: What's a Bearcat...

    As Franklin County's football team took the field at Hollie Warford Stadium Friday night, the Flyers ran through a banner that simply asked the question, “What's a Bearcat?”

    Over the next two hours or so, or 48 minutes of game clock time, the Flyers got a resounding answer they would never find in Wikipedia or through a Google search.
