    My walk with the Lord has not always been an easy one. I remember thinking when I dedicated my life to Jesus that everything around me was going to instantly change for the better.

    Boy was I wrong.

  • Mercer tops Lady Cats

    Mercer County showed why many consider the Titans one of the 10 best girls’ basketball teams in Kentucky with a 74-58 win over Anderson County last Tuesday in Harrodsburg.

    Led by freshman Seygan Robins’ 18 points, the Titans established control in the second quarter, when they outpointed the Lady Bearcats 20-12, then held off an Anderson rally to post the win.

    Mercer, which had beaten Anderson just once since 2006, improved to 15-2, while Anderson fell to 9-8.

  • Lady Bearcats rip Spencer, Rogers has memorable night

    A second-quarter uprising fueled Anderson County to an easy 82-44 win over Spencer County in girls’ basketball action Friday night in Taylorsville.

    After withstanding a Spencer County rally to pull within 15-14 at the end of the first quarter, the Lady Bearcats romped to a 24-9 advantage over the next eight minutes and continued to build the lead.

    Sophomore Sammy Rogers came off the bench to lead Anderson with a career-best 24 points, including a half-court shot that sent the teams to halftime with the Lady Cats up 39-23.

    Had the script gone according to plan, someone wearing a white jersey would have launched a shot just before the buzzer. The net would have snapped, giving an Anderson County team that had taken a journey far beyond expectations a win over a Ballard team that had just put together perhaps its best 32 minutes of the season.

    Reality is cold, however.
