  • March Madness gives moments we remember and want to forget

    It's not called March Madness for no reason.

    We'll overlook the fact that, for the high schools at least, March Madness began on Feb. 21 this year. Whether the moments happen in late February or early to mid-March, they are etched in our memory.

    But the thing about March Madness is you know where you were when something happened and, if it was good for your team, usually about five times the seating capacity of a gym or arena were there when it happened.

  • Dillow places eighth in state wrestling meet

    FRANKFORT – Austin Dillow needed just two seconds. Two measly seconds to stay alive in his seventh-place match at the state wrestling tournament on Saturday afternoon.

    Two seconds were all that stood between Dillow and one more chance to beat Meade County's Garrett Kenealy. But with their match tied at 4, Kenealy scored on a takedown that gave him the higher placing.

  • Bearcats finally have reason to smile

    TAYLORSVILLE – As another of Lowell Gordon’s long-range bombs ripped the nets, Anderson County’s smiles grew broader.

    And with every time the Bearcats forced Eminence into a turnover – the count was 22 altogether – the reality of what was happening Monday night became sharper.

  • Franklin County defeats Anderson girls

    FRANKFORT – Through three months and 27 basketball games, a familiar pattern has stayed with Anderson County's Lady Bearcats.

    When Anderson plays well for 32 minutes, the Lady Bearcats are very tough to beat. When there is a lull, things aren't quite as rosy.

  • Flyers speed past Bearcats in finale

    FRANKFORT – It was less than 30 minutes before Anderson County's scheduled tipoff when the Bearcats walked into Franklin County's gym on Friday night.

    “We got stuck in some traffic and had to step off the bus to play,” said Anderson coach Glen Drury.

    If only that were an explanation for the Bearcats' performance at Franklin. The Bearcats never led, and after a second quarter in which they trailed 30-13, never threatened. Franklin eventually ended its regular season with a 62-41 victory.

  • Oldham balance overcomes Anderson grit

    Oldham County scored seven quick points straddling the third and fourth quarters to get some breathing room on the way to a 49-40 win over Anderson County last Tuesday night.

    The Colonels utilized a very close charging call against the Bearcats that nullified a basket that could have tied things at 28.

  • Mustangs take conference tourney with monumental rout

    The Anderson County Middle School boys' basketball A-team took overwhelmed visiting St. Gregory of Bardstown to take the championship of the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference tournament last Tuesday night. The Mustangs were never threatened on the way to a 58-19 victory.

    Anderson opened the scoring on Austin Cummins' jumper and was never as much as tied. The Mustang pressure forced numerous turnovers leading to easy baskets. Cummins led all scorers with 18 points.

  • Controversy emerging over elk permitting and restoration

    Success can often breed controversy.  Once someone or something becomes a “success” it seems the eyes of the world are firmly fixed and the successful entity is thoroughly monitored while those same monitoring eyes wait anxiously for its downfall. With so many cell phones, pictures, videos, computers and other electronic means out there it seems impossible to “escape” attention or “get away with anything” when an action or actions are found to be amiss.

  • Campbellsville inks Pritchert

    Anderson County High School senior Hannah Pritchert has signed an NAIA letter-of-intent to play soccer at Campbellsville University.

    A mid-fielder and defender, Pritchert selected Campbellsville over Thomas More College and Asbury University in Kentucky, Rockford University in Illinois and Ursuline College of Ohio. She plans to major in biology at Campbellsville with a focus on pre-veterinary studies, pre-medical or pre-physical therapy. Currently, she is leaning toward a career in veterinary medicine, according to her father, Rocky Pritchert.
