  • Cheers and tears for Anderson teams in district tourney

    TAYLORSVILLE – There were cheers and tears for the Anderson County High School basketball teams in 30th District play Tuesday night

  • BLOG: Bearcats can play loose at Spencer

    Anderson County can be thankful Lowell Gordon had a hot hand Monday night. The junior, who is usually one of the smallest players on the court, came up big for the Bearcats in their district tournament win over Eminence Monday night at Spencer County.


    Early, Anderson struggled a bit. The Bearcats did not appear to be tight, but just could not find the rim from the outside. However, Gordon nailed back-to-back 3-pointers in the second quarter that got Anderson going. The more he – and the rest of the Bearcats shot – the hotter they got.

  • Bearcats roll past Eminence in district opener

    TAYLORSVILLE -- Lowell Gordon buried seven 3-point shots and the Anderson County defense stymied the Eminence attack in the second half as the Bearcats rolled to a 69-45 win in the first round of the 30th District Tournament at Spencer County.

    Gordon’s outburst is believed to tie a school record for downtown bombing with Will Shouse and Dustin Aldridge. Gordon’s back-to-back threes in the fourth quarter pushed Anderson to a 56-39 advantage. Eminence, which had stayed within striking distance through three quarters, was never within 15 again.

  • STATE WRESTLING: Late take down stops Dillow in medal round

    FRANKFORT -- Meade County's Garrett Kenealy scored a take-down with two seconds remaining to defeat Anderson County's Austin Dillow in the seventh-place match of the 135-pound class at the Kentucky High School Athletic Association state tournament on Saturday.

    Dillow had rallied in the third period to forge a tie when he scored on an escape with 27 seconds to go.
    “He wrestled well and left all he had out there on the mat,” said Anderson coach Tom Castle.

  • Third quarter spree lifts Franklin girls past Lady Cats

    Trailing 24-19, Franklin turned up the defensive pressure to go on a 14-1 run and take control of the game. Anderson cut the lead to three points on three separate occasions in the fourth quarter, but could not get the break down the stretch.

  • Franklin boys roll past Bearcats

    FRANKFORT -- Franklin County led from wire-to-wire as the Flyers rolled to a 62-41 win over Anderson County in boys' basketball action on Friday night.

    Franklin used its quickness to completely disrupt the Anderson offensive attack, building a 30-13 halftime lead and then never allowing Anderson to get closer than 14 points in the second half. Franklin's margin topped out at 58-36 late in the fourth quarter.

    “All year long, we have been emotionally charged, but tonight we weren't,” said Anderson coach Glen Drury.

    Flanked by a couple dozen folks from his own 6th District neck of the woods, Conway spoke from the crowd at the end of the board of elections meeting.
