  • Bearcats open regional play...

    The Anderson County High School boys' basketball team opens Eighth Region play Thursday night against 31st District runner-up Eminence. Tip-off is set for 6:30 p.m. at Henry County High School.

    The contest is the first of the lower bracket quarterfinals. Walton-Verona plays South Oldham in the other lower bracket game. Wednesday's games see Gallatin County playing Williamstown followed by Oldham County and Collins.

  • Girls' regional draw sets...

    Anderson County and Simon Kenton, the schools which have dominated the girls' Eighth Region over the last decade, could be headed for a semi-final showdown after the pairings for the regional tournament were announced Saturday morning. The tournament gets underway Monday, Feb. 27 at Oldham County High School.

  • Bearcats repeat as district...

    Scenes from Anderson County's 60-46 win over Spencer County in the girls' 30th District championship game.

  • Lady Bearcats, Bearcats look to...

    The Anderson County High School basketball teams will be trying to defend their titles Friday night in the 30th District Tournament finals at Collins High School in Shelbyville.

    The Anderson girls will be playing Spencer County at 6 p.m. while the Bearcat boys will be playing the host school at 7:30. Both the district winners and runner-up advance to the regional tournament, which opens next week.

  • 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.
