    Listen up Anderson County athletes, because I have an announcement I think you’ll be interested in.

    This summer I am going to introduce a weekly column in the paper called “Battles with Bearcats”, where I will be going head-to-head with Anderson County’s top athletes in their respective sport then write about the experience in the paper.

    I’ve already had a number of athletes reach out to me, up for the challenge, and I expect this column to be a lot of fun to read and write.

    NICHOLASVILLE – The boys’ soccer Salt River Conference championship game was delayed a week because of inclement weather and conflicting schedules, but it was worth the wait for Anderson County.

    Last Thursday’s SRC title game between the Mustangs and West Jessamine ended in celebration and smiles for Anderson, as the Mustangs defeated the Colts 3-1 to capture their first SRC title under head coach George Geoghegan.

    “I’m really pleased with this team, they really came on,” Geoghegan said.

    For the past five years at about this time, we ask ourselves ‘is this the year that it could happen?’
