  • BASKETBALL: Cann, McKee named to Junior All-Stars

    Anderson County High School girls' basketball players Makenzie Cann and Eriel McKee have been selected to the Kentucky Junior All-Star team, announced Sunday.

    McKee, a 5-10 junior forward, averaged nearly 18 points and eight rebounds a game for the Lady Bearcats in 2012-13. McKee also became the all-time leading scorer in Anderson County girls' basketball history in mid-January. She needs just over 200 points to become the all-time leading scorer, girls or boys, in Anderson County history.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Bearcats open season with no hitter

    It was only the softball season-opener, but Anderson County pitchers have already issued a “Can you top this?” challenge.

  • BASEBALL: Bearcat bats silenced at Dunbar

    Anderson County baseball is looking for bats. Any size, any shape or any color. Just anything that might generate some offense.

    At least, that was the case last week as the Bearcats mustered just one hit in two games, dropping contests at Paul L. Dunbar and Madison Central. Two strong Bearcat pitching performances went by the board.

    Workers at the scene said there are approximately 300 households currently without phone service, including homes on Hammond Road and in the nearby Honeysuckle subdivison. Service was expected to be restored sometime Thursday night.

  • Cinderella FGCU hits home for McWilliams

    Raise your hand if you really, truly knew the first thing, anything, about Florida Gulf Coast University before Friday night.

    Be honest now. Did you really know anything about Sherwood Brown, Brett Comer and the millionaire coach with the super-model wife.

    I asked for a show of hands on Twitter Sunday night. The answers were predictable. “In NKU's conference,” Travis Davis wrote.
