  • Cats get better against Garrard

    The Anderson County High School boys’ soccer team had one mission after some one-sided losses two weeks ago: Get better.

    “We took a hard look at ourselves,” Coach Jeff Pritchett said about his team after suffering blowout losses to Scott County and Collins. “We took a hard, hard look at ourselves. We looked at where we are and made some changes. We made some changes in the formations. We had some players in different spots. We have to be willing to play the spots the team needs you to play.”

  • Chemistry 101, Bearcat style

    Mark Peach almost seemed out of place Friday night as he talked about Anderson County’s performance in a storm-shortened 28-0 win at Mercer County.

    “You think about Kentucky in 1997,” the Anderson football coach began.

    Well, yes, that glorious Wildcat season saw Tim Couch throw for about a million yards as Hal Mumme’s “Air Raid” made its debut in Lexington. A whole bunch of those yards went to Craig Yeast, who had played his high school football at Harrodsburg on the field a few yards from where Peach was talking.

    “We have to be better!” Pritchett said.

  • Anderson golfers 11th at Gene...

    Anderson County’s girls’ golf team saw too many chances get away as the Lady Bearcats finished 11th out of 17 teams in the annual Gene Hilen Invitational Tournament, held Saturday at Juniper Hills Golf Course in Frankfort.

    The Lady Bearcats totaled 399 as a team, led by sophomore Haley Case with an 88 over 18 holes. Jaclynn Ruble followed with a 95 while Allaka Lewis and Lauren Holmes both shot 108.

  • Volley Cats in action

    HARRODSBURG -- Long before flashes across the sky sent everyone home from Friday night, Anderson County’s lightning had struck.

    And the Bearcat football lightning struck quickly and with a vengeance in a 28-0 romp over Mercer County at Alvis Johnson Field. By the time game officials decided to call the game following a weather delay that added about 20 minutes to halftime, Anderson had hit hard and was well on its way to victory.

  • With Bearcat star sidelined,...

    What had been a thunderous roar turned to silence in less time than it had taken Zach Labhart to motor 42 yards for a touchdown Friday night.

    The Anderson County junior had broken free at the line, then raced to the end zone to give Anderson a 6-0 lead over Meade County. As the crowd roared, Labhart celebrated.

    Then he crumpled to the ground. Even before trainers helped Labhart to his feet, there was a fear that his injury was much more serious than just keeping him out of the line up the rest of the night.

  • Bearcats earn first win in...

    The Anderson County High School boys’ soccer team picked up its first win of the season in last week’s Capital City Classic, but most of all the Bearcats learned something about themselves.

    “The Capital City Classic was a success overall for our program,” Anderson’s first-year coach Jeff Pritchett said. “We left no doubt that when we play hard and as a team we have an opportunity to compete.”
