  • Bearcats, Lady Cats tip off...

    As the Anderson County High School basketball teams open the season next week, the outlooks are markedly different. They’ve scrimmaged other teams and had mixed results, but it starts for real next week.

  • A season to enjoy!

    There’s always excitement with the start of just about any athletic season.

    And since this IS Kentucky, there’s always just a little more of a tug, a bit more adrenaline pumping when the basketball starts bouncing for real.

    It should be no different in Anderson County over the next few months. We’re dominated by the Big Blue media coverage out of Lexington but the Wildccats are not the only game in town. The high school basketball season, which tips off next week, should be a fun time in these parts.

    Anyone who even remotely follows Kentucky high school football had some idea what Anderson County was getting when Charles Andrew Collins transferred back in the summer.

    The junior running back-linebacker didn’t disappoint, being named the Class 5A, District 6 Player of the Year by the district’s coaches, then being named the WLEX-18 SportsZone Player of the Year last week.

    As he talked with team in the moments following Anderson County’s 14-10 loss to Highlands in the state playoffs on Nov. 9, Bearcat coach Mark Peach mixed the hurt of the loss with the reality that was about to hit.

  • Peach to lead Kentucky All-...

    Anderson County High School football coach Mark Peach has been named head coach of the Kentucky All-Stars for the annual Border Bowl Classic. The game will take place on Saturday, Jan. 19, in Sevierville, Tenn.

    For years, the Border Bowl pitted the Kentucky All-Stars against their counterparts from Tennessee, but the format was changed last year as all-star teams from Georgia and North Carolina joined the day of football at Sevier County High School. Peach said there is a possibility that two other states could be added this year.

    The first snippets of snow fell last week, making most people frown, but put a smile on the faces of Kentucky waterfowl hunters. The cold weather the week before the waterfowl season opener on Thanksgiving Day is a good sign.
