  • 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

    FRANKFORT -- Franklin County turned numerous Anderson County mistakes into baskets during the third quarter on its way to a 45-41 win in girls’ basketball action Friday night.

    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.

  • Seven Bearcat wrestlers qualify for state

    CECILIA – The rankings meant little to Anderson County wrestlers on Saturday.

    While few gave the Bearcats much chance of making much noise in the Region 2 Tournament, held Saturday at Central Hardin High School, Anderson defied the rankings, qualifying seven wrestlers for the state meet.

  • Cotton's road to return qualifies as Biggest Winner

    Zach Cotton might have dropped nearly 100 pounds in the past year, but the only TV show he would ever make is “The Biggest Winner.”

    It makes little difference if he wins the heavyweight championship at this week's state wrestling tournament or even medals. Just being there after two years away from the sport puts the Anderson County High School senior among the class of the most successful.

  • Seven Anderson grapplers make state

    CECILIA -- Seven Anderson County High School wrestlers qualified for the state tournament during regional competition, held Saturday at Central Hardin High School.

    Shea Sparrow (125 pounds), Austin Dillow (135), Chris Fitzpatrick (215) and Zach Cotton (285) finished second in their respective weight classes while Blake Curtsinger (130) and Zack Perry (152) placed third. Jake Vincent finished fourth at 140 pounds.

    The top four wrestlers in each class advance to the state tournament, to be held, starting Thursday, Feb. 17, in Frankfort.

  • Lady Bearcats roll past Meade

    Anderson County scored a 69-60 win at Meade County in girls’ basketball action on Thursday night.

    Makenzie Cann led Anderson with 26 points and Eriel McKee scored 23 as Anderson improved to 17-7 on the year.

    Anderson was ahead by 18 points at the half, but Meade, which was at full strength after suffering an epidemic of injuries this year, halved the margin before the game ended.

    The Lady Bearcats return home on Friday night to take on Woodford County. Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m. It is Anderson’s final home game of the season.

  • Another heartbreaker for Bearcatrs

    It wasn't really a shot.

    There was none of that square-it up, get-your-fingertips-on-the-trademark, keep-your-eye-on-the-target and follow-through stuff on this concoction. There was really no time.

    His team trailing 54-52 and time running out, Shelby County's Eric Schreiner only had time to fling a prayer towards his own basket last Wednesday. Along with several hundred Anderson County and Shelby County faithful, Schreiner watched as the ball grazed the backboard.

  • No doubt about Lady Bearcats' dominance

    There are many ways for a basketball team to show it is better than the opponent, but a 46-0 run?

    You do not have to call your optometrist. You read that right.

    46-0.

    Forty-six straight points.

    That's what Anderson County, one of the haves in the Eighth Region this year, did to Shelby County, a team that had just won its first game of the season the night before. When it was over, the Lady Bearcats had posted a 61-22 win, their 16th straight against 30th District competition.

    Forty-six straight points.
