  • Christian Academy wins state...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg volleyball team put its own name in the school record book Saturday.

    Recording only a 7-16 record during the regular season and being forced to qualify for the Kentucky Christian School Athletic Association Class 3A tournament, the Lady Rams engineered a major surprise with a state championship.

    The Lady Rams navigated the field to claim the state title Saturday at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

    It is CAL’s first state volleyball title.

  • Let the madness begin

    Trying to state just how big tonight’s 30th District basketball semifinal is without overstating the case is almost impossible.

    The Anderson County boys take on Spencer County in what promises to be one of those get togethers that could produce additional business for the neighborhood cardiologist. The Bearcats and Bears tip it off at approximately 7:30 p.m at Collins High School in Shelbyville.

    The Spencer and Collins girls play the first game at 6 but most eyes will be on a rematch of last year’s boys’ opener.

  • Mat Cats already looking ahead...

    Chase Fink might have given a glimpse of things to come for Anderson County wrestling at the KHSAA State Wrestling Tournament.

    The freshman advanced to the quarterfinals in the 138-pound class of the tournament held at Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park Friday and Saturday.

    In his debut at the state, Fink rolled through his first two bouts before falling to Kestin McClain of McCracken County, just one win away from the medal round. McClain eventually finished eighth.

  • Bearcats escape upset bid

    Everything seemed to be under control for Anderson County last Friday night.

    Cobe Penny had just buried a three-pointer that put the Bearcats up on Franklin County 34-18 midway through the second quarter and the largest home crowd of the season was ready bask a monumental rout of the neighboring Flyers.

    But Anderson coach Glen Drury leapt from his chair, demonstratively signaling for a timeout. Before Drury could say anything, his top assistant, Bryan Hyatt, was yelling, “You have quit guarding!”

  • Bearcats rally to defeat pesky...

    Anderson County’s 59-50 win over visiting Western Hills last Wednesday night might be one of those basketball games that one sees through his own perspective.

    To some, a victory over a program that has beaten Anderson just once in the last 25 years is not something that would get a fan worked up. A victory that was not sealed until the fourth quarter might be more of a head-scratcher than one to offer great encouragement going into the post-season.

    Anderson coach Glen Drury didn’t see it that way.

  • Anderson County girls romp at...

    CRESTWOOD – It was quickly apparent that it was going to be Lauren Boblitt’s night.

    Anderson County’s second possession of its 57-31 romp at South Oldham ended with the sophomore center launching a three-point attempt from the right wing.

    Swish!

    It put Anderson up 3-0. The Lady Bearcats would never be on the short end of the score the rest of the night.

    The Lady Bearcats’ next trip ended when Jaclynn Ruble, Boblitt’s classmate who had a big night of her own, slipped a pass to Boblitt for a layup.

  • Lafayette, Campbellsville latest...

    Sammy Rogers had already gone through her Senior Night, but had another big outing on the night she officially said her home court goodbye.

    Rogers scored 19 points, pulled in three rebounds and recorded three steals and three blocked shots as Anderson County romped past visiting Lafayette, 60-35, last Thursday night.

    “I was happy to see Sam get going,” Anderson coach Clay Birdwhistell said. “We know that she can go long stretches of being really hot, and I think we saw glimpses of her starting that again.”

  • Six Mat Cats make state tourney

    Six members of the Anderson County High School wrestling team will be going on to the state tournament.

    The six Mat Cats placed in the top four finishers of their respective weight classes at the Region 5 meet, held at Franklin County High School Saturday. The qualifiers advance to the state tournament which will be held on Friday, Feb. 17 and Saturday, Feb. 18 at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

  • Changes might be coming to a...

    Changes might be coming to high school sports.

    Make that big changes.

    At least there would be some major changes to athletic programs and how they are administered if a proposal that amounts to giving students an option of open enrollment across the state becomes policy.

  • District tourney opens Tuesday

    The real high school basketball season gets underway next week as the 30th District Tournament opens at Collins High School in Shelbyville.

    Anderson County swept the district titles last year, marking the first time a district school had accomplished that feat since 2009.

    While the Anderson girls are heavy favorites to repeat, the boys’ tournament could be a wild affair. Collins would have to be given the nod as the team to beat since it went through the regular-season district schedule unscathed and will be playing at home.
