  • COLUMN: Learning a hard lesson

    The times that hurt the worst are usually the times you remember most.

    It could be a spanking with a willow switch – my bottom still hurts when I think about how my grandmother used to, ahem, remind me I had done wrong – or it could be a little slap on the basketball court.

  • WRESTLING: Bearcats look to...

    All Anderson County can do is leave everything it has on the mat.

    The Bearcat wrestlers will be seeing how they fare against new rivals in the Region 5 Tournament, scheduled for Saturday at Western Hills High School.

  • SWIMMING: Anderson swimmers...

    Anderson County swimmers will be looking for that first-ever berth in the state swimming meet when the regional competition gets underway on Friday, Feb. 14 at 12:30 p.m. The regional meet will be hosted by Russell County High School.

    The Swim Cats competed in the Shelby County Winter Classic on Feb. 1, with the girls placing 18th and the boys finishing 19th in the 23-team event.

    Boies places sixth at state

    Anderson County Middle School wrestler R.J. Boies, an eighth-grader, placed sixth in the 168-pound class of the Kentucky Middle School State Wrestling Championships, held Saturday at Montgomery County Arena in Mt. Sterling..

  • Middle school archers win two...

    The Anderson County Middle School archery team recently won back-to-back tournaments heading into the regional tournaments.

    At the Providence Pre-Regional, held in Nicholasville on Jan. 31, the Mustangs took first place with a team score of 3325. Anderson's boys took six of the top 10 places from among 225 archers.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Learning...

    Anderson County is finally getting it.

    The Bearcats finally put everything together in the final minutes to defeat visiting Woodford County, 67-59, in boys' basketball action Saturday night.

    “Hopefully, we turned the corner tonight and got some momentum,” said Anderson coach Glen Drury, whose team won consecutive games for the first time since taking five straight in December.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    The Anderson County girls' basketball team clinched the top seed in the 30th District Tournament with one-sided wins over Shelby County and Spencer County last week.

    Anderson will play Spencer, which the Lady Bearcats defeated 87-34 Saturday afternoon, in the first round of the district tourney, to be held at Shelby in two weeks.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Threes,...

    Anderson County's formula for girls' basketball success has been relatively simple in the current season: threes, frees and D.

    When the Lady Bearcats get all three going at the same time? They become a relentless machine bent on destruction.

    That Mercy Academy out of Louisville did not finally give in until the second half of the Lady Bearcats' 70-50 romp Friday night was probably a testament to the Jaguars taking on a schedule that Anderson coach Tony Kays said “might be the only one in the state tougher than ours.”

  • OUTDOORS: Youth is served in...

    The weather was fine for hunting in late December during the Anderson County Sportsman’s Club’s fourth youth deer hunt held Dec. 28-29, according to Fish and Wildlife Officer Jason Wells.

    Any young hunters, ages 10-15 years old, who were unsuccessful in harvesting a deer during the fall youth hunt in October were invited to take a deer in December, Wells said.
