  • ONLINE EXTRA: Bearcat golfers...

    Three days after the fact, the reality of the Anderson County boys' golf team qualifying for the state tournament still had not totally taken hold of the Bearcats.

    “It is a lifelong dream. It hasn't really sunk in yet,” senior Nick Wilson said Thursday, as the Bearcats gathered at Wild Turkey Trace for a practice.

  • Sports schedule correction

    The Anderson County girls' soccer team will be playing Franklin County Wednesday night, Oct. 7 with the varsity playing first at 5:30 p.m. Junior varsity will be after the varsity game.

    The Lady Bearcats will also be playing Bardstown on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. with no junior varsity game being played.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Cats place high...

    Anderson County placed second in the silver bracket of the Second Annual Volleyball SMASH Tournament, held at the high school Friday and Saturday. Eight additional teams participated with LaRue County being crowned the gold champions in a stellar performance over Madison Central for the title.

    Anderson fell to Bardstown (25-19, 25-27, 15-6) for silver bracket crown.

  • GOLF: Bearcats earn state berth...

    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...

    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...

     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...

     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.
