    Anderson County will be without one of its top offensive weapons from last year’s 10-0 regular season squad this upcoming fall as running back C.A. Collins is transferring to Breathitt County.

    Collins led the 5A class in yards per carry at 11.3 last season, which was also the fourth best mark in the state. In 11 games, Collins accumulated 1,474 rushing yards and 21 rushing touchdowns, both were top 30 marks in the state.

  • Case, Nicholson win golf tourney...

    The Commandery of Kentucky Golf Tournament at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course came down to the wire this past weekend, with the two-man team of Shaun Case and Chris Nicholson winning in extra holes.

    The format for the tournament was two-man best ball. Each player on the team hit his own ball for the duration of the hole, but the best score on every hole from either teammate was the one that counted towards the team’s cumulative score.

  • Battles with Bearcats: Colin Kays

    In spirit of the Women’s World Cup, I figured now would be a great time to do another soccer battle for this week’s challenge.

    My opponent for the soccer battle was Colin Kays, a junior to-be striker for Anderson County. Kays has been on Anderson County’s varsity team since his freshman year, and he’s been playing soccer since he was eight years old.

    Kays plays soccer competitively almost all year long. He plays for the Bearcats in the fall and plays for a team in a Hispanic league during winter and summer.

  • Summer season used to observe...

    Before the start of the summer basketball season for Anderson County, head coach Clay Birdwhistell wasn’t overly worried about wins or losses, or even his team’s quality of play.

    Instead, the main thing Birdwhistell wanted to see was a few specific things that have made his previous basketball teams in the past successful.

  • Anderson All-Stars compete in...

    RICHMOND – It’s All-Star season for little leaguers, and the Anderson County 7/8 Little League All-Star team competed against other All-Star teams in the District Tournament this weekend in Richmond, Kentucky.

    The team, consisting of Luke Buckley, Mason Carter, Brady Daniels, Cayden Mayewski, Charlie Peavler, Callan Reynolds, Sawyer Shelton, Aiden Sloan, Markell Smith, Braxtyn Warfield and Ethan Wolverton, went 2-1 in three games played over a span of three days.

  • Battles with Bearcats: Henry...

    In my previous two ‘Battles with Bearcats,’ I felt like I had a small chance at winning.

    In this week’s challenge, I knew I had no shot.

  • Bearcats show depth at tournament

    SHELBYVILLE – The Bearcat basketball team wrapped up its summer season last weekend at the Titans/Rockets Summer Shootout, going 2-1 in three games played in the yellow bracket of the tournament.

    Anderson County started the tournament by facing Male’s backup team, which resulted in the Bearcats’ lone loss of the day, a 41-38 loss in overtime.
