  • Milam scores career-high in win

    The St. Catharine College women's basketball team found its game midway through the first half last Monday night and never looked back in recording a 91-72 victory at Asbury College.

    Lena Bramblett’s squad found themselves down 18-14 at the ten minute mark after the Eagles (3-6) went on a 13-2 run. But St. Catharine (4-3) went on their own 26-6 run that gave them a 40-24 halftime lead.
    “It was the best basketball we have played,” said Bramblett. “We played with some emotion and enthusiasm that has been missing. We played like a team with no letdowns when we substituted.”

  • Peach, Bearcats looking ahead to 2011

    Mark Peach was wearing a Notre Dame t-shirt last Tuesday.
    The irony, as he sat down to talk about the just completed football season and what lies ahead for his Anderson County Bearcats, could not be overlooked or overstated.

    Suffice it to say that, based on what transpired over the last half of the regular season and in the playoffs, expectations are high for 2011.
    Maybe not as out of this world as they perennially are in South Bend, but expectations are such that the time for basking in the Bearcats’ longest post-season run in school history is now in the past.

  • Lady Bearcats hold off Lafayette

    “The thing I was most proud of was how they hit us in the mouth and made a run at us, but our kids responded,” said Anderson coach Tony Kays.
