  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats favored but...

    It makes little difference to Mark Peach what the results were the last four times Anderson County has played West Jessamine.

    All the Bearcat football coach can see is 27-21 and 42-21plus what lies ahead for his team.

    For the record, Anderson has dominated the recent meetings with West Jessamine. The Bearcats have pummeled the Colts like a lame workhorse. The last four times the teams have met, Anderson has taken home victories with a combined score of 189-42. That's an average of 47.25-10.5 for those who are counting.)

  • FOOTBALL: No mess (What?) as...

    There wasn't much messy about Anderson County's win over Woodford County last Friday night.

    Except, of course, the football field.

    And the Bearcats' and Yellow Jackets' uniforms.

    And the shoes of just about anyone who had to be on the rain-soaked field at Warford Stadium.

  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady Bearcat...

    Rivalry games often have unexpected results.

    Anderson County worked overtime, and then some, to put away district rival Shelby County in a shootout last Friday at the Shelby County Athletic Complex. 

    The Lady Bearcats outscored Shelby, 4-2, in the penalty kick segment of the contest to go 3-0 in district play. Anderson, after a loss at Bardstown on Saturday, stood at 7-10-2 heading into the final week of the regular season.

    Shelby, which fell to 0-3 in the district, is 10-7-1 overall.

  • GOLF: Signature shot sends...

    SPRINGFIELD -- Tyler Harrod only needed to be himself.

    In a playoff for the final individual berth in the state golf tournament, Harrod dropped an approach shot about 18 inches from the pin, then calmly tapped in his putt to par the extra hole and defeat Green County's Brennan Milby at the Region 4 Golf Tournament last Wednesday.

    Playing the 344-yard first hole at Lincoln Homestead Golf Course, near Springfield, Harrod simply did what he had to do.

  • FOOTBALL: No contest as Bearcats...

    MOUNT STERLING – Granville Hayes had the perfect analysis of Anderson County's 27-8 win at Montgomery County Friday night.

    “Have a feeling imma be taking an ice bath in the morning,” he said on his Twitter account not long after the Bearcats had won their first district match-up of the season.

    Anyone who was in attendance at Cunningham Field knows why. Hayes ran for 126 yards, a career-high, and scored a touchdown. He caught 10 passes, also a career-best, for 104 yards and a score.
