  • Lady Cats roll at Williamstown

    Kaci Currens scored 28 points to lead the visiting Anderson County girls past regional foe Williamstown, 68-54, last Tuesday night.

    Anderson overcame the taller Lady Demons with an efficient offensive performance through the evening.

    “Williamstown was a great test for us,” said Adnerson coach Clay Birdwhistell. “They have a very good, in my opinion, all-region point guard and several long, athletic players. They were a team we were very concerned with.”

  • Archers win big
  • Bidding farewell
  • Bearcats give Drury 500th career...

    Glen Drury has reached a level of excellence that few have attained coaching high school basketball Friday night.

    Anderson County put together what might have been its most complete performance of the year in defeating visiting Simon Kenton, 66-52, giving the veteran Bearcat mentor his 500th career win. All of the victories have come in the Anderson County school system.

    Drury coached two years at Western Anderson before moving to his alma mater for the 1987-88 season.

  • Currens, Harley shine as Lady...

    Anderson County overcame a nine-point deficit to defeat host Boyle County last Monday night.

    Trailing 36-27 early in the third quarter, Anderson went on a 20-3 run, which included a spree of 11 straight points, to take control.

    According to the Danville Advocate-Messenger, Boyle had more turnovers (16) than points (15) in the second half.

    Already without freshmen Lauren Boblitt and Jaclynn Ruble, Anderson felt fortunate to still be in the hunt at the break.

  • Mercy shows why it is elite,...

    Mercy Academy showed why it is one of the elite girls' basketball programs in Kentucky Friday night. The defending Sixth Region champion delivered a staggering punch in the third quarter, then cruised to a 45-35 win over a cold shooting Anderson County team.

    Anderson fell to 16-8 on the year while Mercy, a long-time power that has the hardware from two state championships on display in the school's trophy case, improved to 17-9.

  • Mr. Basketball candidate to visit

    It's not often that basketball players like Carson Williams make headlines these days. He's an old-school success story in the glitz and glamour of 2016.

    The 6-foot-7 Williams makes his final trip to Anderson Thursday night when his Owen County team, considered by many to be the top team in the Eighth Region, comes to town.

    “He has my vote for Mr. Basketball,” Anderson coach Glen Drury says. “He has done it the right way. He is competitive and wants to win and he has stayed at Owen County and stayed the course.”

  • Archers take NASP regional title

    The Anderson County High School archery team took first place in the Kentucky National Archery in the Schools Program Region 7 tournament, held Saturday at the Cross Center in Frankfort.

    Anderson scored 3,414 points out of a possible 3,600.

    “This is the second best score posted in the state this year,” said Anderson coach Dave Frederick.

  • Rams overcome CEC

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg boys' basketball team pulled away from Christian Educators' Consortium to post a 57-49 win Saturday in Louisville.

    Josh Smith led the Rams with 21 points while Zach Dennis tallied 15, including a trio of 3-point shots.

    Leading 42-41 entering the fourth quarter, CAL made the plays down the stretch to claim the win.

    “It was a tough game on the road,” CAL coach Cory Robinson said. “We didn't play well in the first half, but pulled together in the second half and got a big win.”

  • Lady Cats romp at Ballard

    Anderson County continued to flex its muscle as the Lady Bearcats routed Ballard, 58-28, last Wednesday in Louisville.

    Anderson was never threatened as the Lady Bearcats pummeled a team that is in a major rebuilding project.

    Taylor Harley took a blow to the head in the first quarter and was out the rest of the game, leaving an already short-handed Lady Cat team even more decimated.
