    TAYLORSVILLE – On paper, everything looked like a showdown when Anderson County traveled to Spencer County last Thursday.

    Instead, Anderson underlined, highlighted and put an exclamation point on its dominance of 30th District girls’ basketball

  • Cann following her dreams at UK

    By Larry Vaught, Contributing writer

    LEXINGTON — It was the kind of play that Makenzie Cann knows she has to make for Kentucky.

    She was trying to take a charge at Duke. Instead, she took an elbow to the face.

    “I actually did not realize then I had broken my nose,” said the Kentucky sophomore from Anderson County. “I actually broke my nose my year at Cincinnati (before she transferred to Kentucky). But it was not bleeding or anything, so I thought it was good.”

  • Bearcats write introduction for...

    It was not a statement. Not even close.

    But Anderson County wrote the introduction to what the Bearcats hope will be a happy story Friday night with a 64-51 home court win over 30th District rival Shelby County.

    Leading just 25-22 after a sloppy first half, the Bearcats outpointed Shelby, 22-9, in the third quarter to cruise to the win. Anderson, now 10-4 on the year, made a big step toward a good seed in the 30th District Tournament, to be played in late February at Collins High School.
