  • Bearcats rally late for win at Casey

    Anderson County's boys' basketball team seems intent on proving the doubters wrong.
    That is what was apparent last Tuesday when the Bearcats rallied from seven points down in the fourth quarter to take a hard-fought 60-57 win at Casey County in the season opener for both teams.
    Erik Newton, Anderson's only returning starter from 2010, scored Anderson's first 10 points, then sank a pair of free throws with 10 seconds to go to provide the winning margin for the Bearcats.

  • Football Bearcats named first team All-District

    Nine Anderson County football players were named first team All-District by the coaches of Class 5A, District 4 last week.
    Bearcat coach Mark Peach was also named the district's Coach of the Year after leading the Bearcats, picked third in pre-season by most polls, to the district championship. It was only the third district title in school history but second in the last four years.

  • 100 years of basketball: Local man starred at Lincoln

    Don't try to sell John Cunningham on Rick Pitino, John Calipari or any other modern basketball coach as being the master of the full-court press and fast break offense.

    He'd rather talk about Herbert Garner, coach of the Lincoln Institute Tigers.
    “What made our team so good was that we would practice for 2-3 hours doing nothing but the full-court press,” says Cunningham, a Lawrenceburg realtor who was bused to Lincoln Institute.

  • 100 years of basketball: Lincoln's magical season ended at Freedom Hall

    (Editor's note: Jewell Logan is one of many Anderson County residents who were bused to Lincoln Institute in Shelby County. He was the Most Valuable Player of the 1960 Lincoln Tigers, who made the school's only appearance in the Sweet 16. They lost to Owensboro in the first round, 77-75. Mr. Logan now lives in Portland, Ore. and sent this e-mail to Anderson News sports editor John Herndon last week.)

    Attending Lincoln Institute was a fantastic experience for me and I am sure for many of the other students from Lawrenceburg who attended there over the years.

  • 100 years of basketball: Little has changed, Terry Young looks like he could still fill it up

    Terry Young looks like he could still fill it up. He's trim and still sports a boyish grin that belies the fact that one of the greatest shooters in Anderson history is now 63 years old. But in many ways, Young hasn't changed.

  • 100 years of basketball: Newly-formed Anderson continues hoops tradition

    There was never any doubt that Anderson High School would field a top-notch basketball program. After all, how could a school formed by the merger of Lawrenceburg and Kavanaugh high schools be anything else?
    Kavanaugh and Lawrenceburg had been two of Kentucky's storied programs from the time Centre College put on he first state tournament in 1916 up until the the 1949 11th Region Tournament, when University High, of Lexington, ousted Kavanaugh in the school's final game.

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg volleyball team continues to improve. The junior varsity squad has added wins over Nelson County Baptist and Madison Christian Academy, making their record 3-1. The varsity squad (0-6), which includes several JV players, hasn’t quite come together yet, but the signs are all there.
