  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Bearcat...

    The Anderson County High School volleyball team dominated on the road against East Jessamine on Thursday.

    East Jessamine was no match for the Lady Bearcats who pulled out three straight wins during Thursday’s match. “The varsity girls looked strong tonight with fewer errors, that helped us to win big over East Jessamine with game scores of 25-8, 25-14 and 25-16. If they continue to play with this type of determination our skills will be unstoppable,” said Anderson assistant coach Bobby Hardin, who ran the team in head coach Courtney DeLong's absence.

  • Courage in Munich to reunite...

    Georgetown College alumnus Kenny Davis and Hall of Fame sports journalist Billy Reed have formulated an idea to reunite the historic 1972 U.S. men's Olympic basketball team.

    Courage in Munich will mark the first time all 12 teammates will be together since the games 40 years ago, according to a news release from Georgetown College.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady Bearcat...

    Anderson County's girls' soccer team might have learned more in a no-decision than any of its three games in the first week of the 2012 season.

    The Lady Bearcats went 1-1-1 in their first three games, routing Marion County 7-0 last Wednesday, but dropping a 2-0 decision at Russell on Saturday. Yet, it was a scoreless tie in the season opener at Harrison County that had Lady Bearcat coach Jason Earnest smiling.

    “A tie on the road to a pretty good team is always good,” he said. “I predict Harrison County to win (the 10th) Region this year.”

  • FOOTBALL: Bryan Station scores...

    Bryan Station scored with 42.2 seconds left to defeat host Anderson County, 41-34 in football action Friday night.

    The Defenders responded after Anderson had taken a 34-33 lead on a pass from Zachary Carmichael to Ross Cox with 3:16 to play. That had been third time the lead change on the evening.

    Carmichael and Cox combined for four touchdowns and Carmichael, a sophomore making his first start, ran for another. Complete statistics were not immediately available.

    Thursday was a good day for Anderson County sports teams that have reported results to The Anderson News.

  • 1972 Bearcats to have tailgate...

    The 1972 Anderson County football team, the school's first district football champion, will be holding a tailgate party before Friday's Anderson-Bryan Station game at Anderson, according to Anthony Stratton, an all-state running back on that team. Players are urged to look for signs pointing to the tailgate in the Anderson parking lot.

    Stratton says he will have a tent and food will be available. The party starts at 6 p.m.

  • Wednesday morning high school...

    The Anderson County boys' soccer team got the season off to a good start when the Bearcats defeated Lexington Sayre on Tuesday night at the Anderson field.
    Bearcat junior Joe Rose broke a 1-1 tie when he won a loose ball battle with the Sayre goalie, then tapped the ball into the net with just over seven minutes to play. Sayre never seriously threatened again.

  • FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Franklin,...

    The endings were so different. The feelings were at the opposite ends of the emotional spectrum.

    Back on Oct. 14, Anderson County football players walked off the home field after taking a 56-24 beating from District 6 foe Franklin County. To make matters worse, it was Anderson's Senior Night and there was a danger the mental beating might have been worse than the one that saw several Bearcats head to the bench and not return.

  • FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Replacing...

    The Band of Brothers will be calling on the replacements when the high school football season opens Friday night.

    And in some cases, they will be calling on the replacements of the replacements.
