  • WRESTLING: Bearcats win at Capital City

    Anderson County wrestlers brought home first place in the Capital City Classic, held at Franklin County High School, for the second consecutive year on Saturday.

    The Bearcats won the 16-team event with 232 points, far ahead of second-place Louisville Western. Franklin County placed third while Ft. Campbell took fourth.

    Three Anderson wrestlers won their respective weight classes: T.W. Stockton (138 pounds), Eric Spencer (145) and Jake Vincent (160).

    Three others, Zack Perry (152), Alex Swartz (182) and Travis Kaelin (195), placed second.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: North Oldham rallies past Bearcats

    Junior guard David Levitch scored 23 points to lead North Oldham to a 53-42 come-from-behind win over Anderson County last Tuesday night at Goshen.

    Anderson had led 24-19 at the half, but North Oldham went on an 18-6 run to start the second half and then outscored Anderson 16-7 in the fourth quarter to seal the win.

    “We played well in the first half,” Anderson coach Glen Drury said, “but for some reason we left our emotions in the locker room at halftime. This was the first time this year we didn't play with passion.”

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats cruise past Tates Creek

    A win over Tates Creek might have been like apple pie after a meal of spinach on Saturday.

    “It was good to get back on track and get the bad taste out of our mouths,” Anderson County girls' basketball coach Tony Kays said after his team posted a 56-45 win in the East Jessamine Coaches vs. Cancer Classic.

    The final horn sounded about 16 hours after dropping a heart-breaker to South Oldham.

    Sydney Brown turned in one of her best offensive games of the year with 14 points, while Makenzie Cann added 13 for Anderson.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Region's top-ranked team has taken similar path to Bearcats

    For several years, the story was the same in the Eighth Region: Anderson County and South Oldham would be nipping at the heels of Shelby County, Oldham County and, until 2005, Scott County at the top of the region's pecking order.

    While Anderson finally broke through with a Sweet 16 trip three years ago, South Oldham has never been able to break through that barrier.

    When the 2011-12 season began, the Bearcats and Dragons were lumped together again, but this time as two perennially strong teams that were pegged to struggle.

  • COLUMN:Hickey's heart made its way into Anderson coach's

    I'm pretty sure Glen Drury is a fan of John Calipari.

    The Anderson County boys' basketball coach has often marveled at how quickly Calipari got Kentucky back at the top of the national scene and how he has been successful in getting a different group of previously-coddled high school hot shots to play together as a team.

    After a win earlier this year, he talked about one of his players understanding the game much better and saying that the player had created some shots “off the dribble drive.”

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats host 10th Region power

    Anderson County coach Tony Kays believes the best way to become the best is to play the best. The Lady Bearcats will continue to navigate a rugged schedule next Tuesday, Jan. 31, when they host Montgomery County, the team ranked at the top of the 10th Region.

    The Lady Indians stood at 15-5, the same as Anderson, after Friday's games. Montgomery has beaten South Oldham, the team that slipped by Anderson last week. Montgomery prevailed over South Oldham, 54-50, in the Gateway Holiday Classic at Montgomery on Dec. 28.
