  • GOLF: Riley needs extra holes to...

    Kaitlyn Riley might be getting used to long days on the golf course.

    At least during the Region 4 Tournament she is.

    For the second consecutive year, the Anderson County High School junior had to win a playoff but still advanced to the state golf tournament, to be held next week at the Bowling Green Country Club. It is Riley's third state berth.

    Riley fired an 81 at the Gibson Bay Golf Course in Richmond, where the tournament was held Monday.

    The Anderson County 4-H shooting sports team produced three individual state champions and four team champions in the state meet held recently. Eighteen local youth participated in the event, competing for the championships in two separate disciplines: archery and shotgun.

    Those earning state championships were Adam Steele in the 9-11 year old Bare Bow Division; Justin Mehs in the 15-18 year old Bare Bow Division; and Ethan Steel in the 15-18 year old Target Bow Division.

    Steele is repeating as state champion in the same division.

  • OUTDOORS: Sights and sounds of...

    Fall is here and archery season is in full swing. The cooler temps will have the leaves turning autumn colors and starting the beginning of what will be the end of summer. These same cooler temperatures will soon have the white tailed bucks here in Kentucky starting their annual frenzy to find as many lady friends as possible. 

  • Bearcats get good start in...

    Granville Hayes scored two touchdowns, was responsible for 230 yards of offense and, for good measure, recovered a key fumble to leas Anderson County to a 27-8 win at previously-unbeaten Montgomery County Friday night.

    Hayes took a 5-yard pass from Zachary Carmichael with 9:23 remaining in the first half for the game's first touchdown then burst through the Montgomery line for a 3-yard score to ice the game in the final minute.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady...

    The Anderson County High School girls' soccer team took a major step toward the top seed in the 30th District Tournament when the Lady Bearcats won at Spencer County, 4-2, Monday night.

    The Lady Bearcats control their own destiny in the seeding race, needing only to beat Shelby County next Friday night, Sept. 28. If the Lady Bearcats take care of business then, they will be the regular season district winner and will be seeded No. 1, regardless of what happens with any of the other district teams.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Determined,...

    This time, there was little hand-wringing. There were no worried looks.

    It was just determination. And confidence.

    Lots of confidence.

    Anderson County turned back visiting Collins in four games to win a key 30th District volleyball matchup last Thursday. The Lady Bearcats simply believed in themselves in recording their first-ever victory over the Shelbyville school.
