  • Sudden end to overtime classic

    It was everything one could expect when teams separated by just over 12 miles on the map and two spots in the statewide coaches’ poll got together.

    And more. Much, much more.

    About the only thing that could have made the District 25 girls’ soccer tournament final better for Anderson County would have been to change the result.

  • State tourney jitters hinder...

    Getting to the state tournament is supposed to be a big deal.

    That is why it is not unusual for participants, no matter what sport, to have jitters when they get there.

    Now, Taylor Gillis knows that feeling up close and personal.

    After a strong practice round last Monday, the Anderson County junior found herself at 6-over just three holes into the state high school golf tournament held at Bowling Green Country Club. She eventually settled in, but rain that interrupted, then delayed, the tournament disrupted her rhythm.

  • Anderson awakens, advances to...

    Corey Sayre knew Anderson County would win but that did not make the Lady Bearcat volleyball coach any happier.

    A heavy favorite in the 28th District tournament semifinals, being played on its home floor, Anderson was on the wrong end of a 10-7 score to Eminence Monday night. Not only did Sayre call for a time out, he pulled his team away from the bench and huddled along the basketball baseline.

  • Now the fun begins

    Nearly everyone would like to think that his road to the top is filled with the toughest obstacles.

    For those wanting to win the girls’ 25th District soccer tournament, it could be a reality, not an exaggeration.

    We are sure there are probably stronger districts in Kentucky. The boys’ 27th District, for example, boasts that five of its six teams are in the state’s Top 25.

    Russell finished with 159 yards passing and 112 rushing.

  • Scrap gets at ’em as...

    CRESTWOOD – Scrap showed up for a fight Friday night but this time it was the Dragons that had to be saying “Rut roh!”

    “He loved watching Scooby Doo when he was little, and we started calling him Scrap,” Sue Harvey said of her son, Kendrick, now a senior running back for Anderson County.

    Scrap, as in Scrappy Doo, Scooby’s smallish, but fearless nephew?

  • Bullitt Central stuns Bearcats

    Bullitt Central used a punishing second half attack and converted three crucial short yardage situations on fourth down to dampen Anderson County's homecoming Friday night, 39-33.
