  • ‘That fellow from Anderson...

    Glen Drury’s reputation as a great high school basketball coach has long gone before him. Even those who don’t know him well know of the Anderson County Bearcat basketball program.

    And that reputation led Drury to a chance meeting that developed into one of the greatest honors bestowed on a high school coach in Kentucky along with a lasting friendship beyond the basketball court.

  • They Said It: Glen Drury, The...

    Why are Drury’s teams difficult to prepare for?

    “I think it’s because when you look at his teams they are deceiving. They might not be the most athletic or talented but they take on his personality. They are all tough, competitive rascals that will do anything to get the job done.”

    —Jason Couch, head basketball coach, Shelby County High School

  • Strange calls overshadow good...

    I jokingly told my wife Saturday night that I was almost afraid to attend church Sunday for fear I might get T-ed up. It had been that kind of weekend.

    Friday night, I was at Franklin County High School when the crucial point of the game turned on a very questionable flagrant technical foul call. Inside the last two minutes of the third quarter, Anderson County’s Gunnar Gillis was hit with a flagrant-one when he and a Franklin County player became entwined in a scrap for a loose ball.

  • Franklin fries Bearcats in finale

    FRANKFORT – On paper, the Anderson County-Franklin County basketball rivalry means little. There are no post-season ramifications, just pride on the line in what has been the regular-season finale since 2000.

    The record will show that Franklin County spanked the Bearcats, 64-47, in a contest between a pair of clubs hovering around .500. Frankin entered the post-season at 12-13 while Anderson went into Tuesday’s 30th District Tournament opener at 14-13.

  • Anderson wrestlers advance in...

    LEXINGTON – The end came just a little too soon for Caleb Boyles at the KHSAA State Wrestling Tournament Saturday. The Anderson County High School senior seemed to be in control against Dixie Heights’ Kairus Washington in an elimination match with the winner moving on to the medal round.

  • CAL bows out of volleyball...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg volleyball team bowed out of the Kentucky Christian School Athletic Association Tournament, dropping their second and third matches of the tourney, which was held Friday and Saturday at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

    A tough bracket did the Lady Rams in. After getting an easy win over London Christian, the Lady Rams fell to Rolling Hills, the top-ranked team and eventual KCSAA champ. Rolling Hills took it’s fourth consecutive state title.

  • Rams third in KCSAA

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg boys’ basketball team took third place in the Kentucky Christian Schools Athletic Association state tournament, held Friday and Saturday at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

    The Rams opened tournament play with a 75-66 win over Cornerstone, but dropped a 58-57 heart-breaker to Galilean in the second round Friday night.

    Moved to the consolation bracket Saturday, the Rams rolled past CEC, 55-30, then whipped Rolling Hills, 55-43 in the third-place game.

  • Swim Cats have highest regional...

    The Anderson County High School boys’ swimming team registered the program’s highest finish yet when the Swim Cats placed ninth at the Region 5 swimming meet, held Feb. 12-13 at Falling Springs Recreation Center in Versailles.

    “Our boys’ ninth-place finish has been our best yet,” said Anderson coach Karla Phillips. “Up until this year, the highest our boys’ team had finished was 12th in 2012.”
