  • No doubt about Lady Bearcats' dominance

    There are many ways for a basketball team to show it is better than the opponent, but a 46-0 run?

    You do not have to call your optometrist. You read that right.

    46-0.

    Forty-six straight points.

    That's what Anderson County, one of the haves in the Eighth Region this year, did to Shelby County, a team that had just won its first game of the season the night before. When it was over, the Lady Bearcats had posted a 61-22 win, their 16th straight against 30th District competition.

    Forty-six straight points.

  • Cann burns Clark as Lady Bearcats roll

    Makenzie Cann ripped Clark County with some deadly 3-point shooting to lead Anderson County past Clark, 64-51, in girls’ basketball action Thursday night in Winchester.

    Cann hit on 7-of-8 threes on her way to a varsity career-best 32 points. Cann was 10-for-12 overall from the field.

    “As good as Kenzie was offensively, she was even better defensively,” said Anderson coach Tony Kays. “She held Clark’s best player (Preshia Rogers) to nine points.”

  • Second quarter propels Woodford past Anderson

    Woodford County erupted to outscore Anderson County 21-9 in the second quarter and that was enough to give the Yellow Jackets a 57-44 win over the Bearcats in boys' basketball action Friday night in Versailles.

    “We got in some foul trouble and could not stop their big men,” Anderson coach Glen Drury said.

    Woodford's 6-foot-7 junior, Jay Johnson, hit the Bearcats for 16 points, while another junior, 6-6 David Greenwell, also scored 16.
    Johnson is being courted by several mid-major Division I schools, Drury said.

  • Bearcats close out home schedule

    Anderson County's boys will close out the home portion of the basketball season when the Bearcats host Grant County on Saturday and Oldham County next Monday.

    Saturday's contest has been designated as the annual Coaches vs. Cancer game and also is the Bearcats' winter homecoming game. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

    Grant brings a 9-15 record into Saturday's contest under first-year coach Jim Hicks.

    Hicks, a long-time mentor at Bath County, took over the Brave program from Ron Kinmon, who moved into administration.

  • Carter signs with OVC school

    Anderson County High School soccer player Madison Carter has inked a national letter-of-intent with Eastern Illinois University of the Ohio Valley Conference.

    Located in Charleston, Illinois, Eastern Illinois finished 7-9-5 last fall.
    A four-year starter at Anderson, Carter is expected to play forward for the Panthers. She also considered Tusculum University in Alabama and Morehead State.

    “I told them she is a player,” Anderson coach Jason Earnest said.

  • Prater signs with Indy

    Anderson County High School soccer player Abby Prater signed a national letter-of-intent with the University of Indianapolis in a ceremony at the school last Wednesday. Prater is expected to play as a midfielder for the Greyhounds, who compete in the Great Lakes Valley Conference of the NCAA's Division II.

  • Wrestlers shooting for state berths at region meet

    The second season for Anderson County wrestling is about to begin.
    The Mat Cats will be competing in the Region 2 meet, set for Central Hardin High School on Saturday, Feb. 12. The first bouts will get underway at 10 a.m.

    Anderson has been impressive of late, winning the Capital City Classic in Frankfort in mid-January and finishing second in the Danville Admiral Duals the following week. Saturday, Anderson went 2-1 in a duals meet at Woodford County.

    The Bearcats defeated Louisville Manual, but lost to Southern and the host team on its senior day.

  • Surprising Woodford to test Lady Bearcats

    Only three games remain in the regular season for the Anderson County girls' basketball team but they should provide three tests to see where the Lady Bearcats stand as they get ready for 30th District Tournament play, set to begin on Feb. 21.

    Friday, the Lady Bearcats host longtime rival Woodford County, a team that upset the Lady Bearcats last year in Versailles. It will be Anderson's final home game of the season.
