  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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

    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.
