  • VOLLEYBALL: Anderson surrenders...

    Shelby County's volleyball win at Anderson County Monday night really was as close as the final two-point margin.

    But the perspective on what happened in the tie-breaker was much wider.

    Trailing 6-1 with Anderson seeming to have everything going its way in the decisive game, Shelby coach Felicia Pace called time to give her team a very simple reminder.

    “I told them we have to have some backbone,” Pace said. “We were not playing with it.”

  • GOLF: Bearcat golfers fall to...

    The Anderson County boys' golf team fell to Woodford County, 155-158, last Wednesday at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.

    The match came down the the final few holes, according to Anderson coach Jim Beward. “We played better than Monday's tournament (at Shelby County), but it was just not good enough.

    Tyler Harrod and Lee Robinson both shot 38 for Anderson while Zachary Toles turned in a 40 in his first varsity match. Gabe McMichael came in at 42 while Josh Brown shot a 43. Brown's score was dropped in the final tally.

    There is always uncertainty when change is involved. The Anderson County boys' soccer program is no exception.

    Mike Brody, who had been guiding Louisville Central for the last five years, has taken over the reins of the Bearcat program after long-time coach Brett Morris stepped down. Morris had led Anderson to six consecutive winning seasons, including an 11-10 mark last year.

    Brody, a paraprofessional, steps into a program that has some good talent but will be meshing new players into the rotation while learning a new system.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bearcats turn...

     Five head coaches in five years is not exactly the textbook formula for building a high school sports program.

    But that is Courtney DeLong's welcome to her new position as volleyball coach at Anderson County High School. DeLong, one of the best ever to serve and set for the Lady Bearcats, is undaunted.

    “I think with me being new, it is different for the team,” DeLong says, “but I can relate to that. When I was in high school, we had a different coach my last three years.”
