    Summer has arrived in Kentucky and with that comes the heat, humidity, thunderstorms, tornadoes and flooding that typically accompany such weather events. There’s nothing surprising in a day in the Bluegrasss state, especially here in Anderson County.

    Winners were named in the recent tournament at the Emma B. Ward archery camp recently.

  • Mudcats face older competition

    The Central Kentucky Mudcats had a tough week on the ledger in the final games before the two-week summer break known as the dead period.


    The Mudcats, a local traveling baseball team of 13- and 14-year-olds, lost four of five games against older competition last week to see their summer record go to 5-6.


    “Considering (playing older teams) the boys did pretty well,” said Mudcat coach Chris Copenhaver, who had to miss most of last week’s action due to other commitments.

    Final thoughts on the Kentucky-Indiana basketball all-star games ...

    1. Anderson County’s Glen Drury did a marvelous job getting the Kentucky All-Stars to take on the personality of his Bearcat teams.
    While they were all-star games, the Kentucky-Indiana summer series is unlike any other. It has defense, no one is guaranteed playing time and it really does mean something to a lot of people.

    It was not the Sweet 16, but Anderson County girls’ basketball has a state championship under its belt.


    The Lady Bearcats rolled through the state AAU tournament, held over the weekend at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.
    The team played its final three games on Sunday. Anderson’s pool play was completed on Friday with the first round of bracket play being played on Saturday.

  • Drury says coaching All-Stars...

    Glen Drury knew how big the challenge would be when he accepted the job of coaching the 2011 Kentucky All-Stars.


    That was back in the fall of 2009. He knew it would require that he work as an assistant coach to Mike Listerman, then of Covington Catholic, last summer before being the man totally in charge.


    And he also knew that the Indiana Class of 2011 was loaded.


    His crop? Better than average, perhaps.

  • Kentucky falls just short vs....

    LOUISVILLE – When asked if there were any tears in the Kentucky All-Stars’ locker room Friday night, Coach Glen Drury simply said, “Mine.”


    It was not an unexpected response from Drury, who had poured his heart and soul into a high school basketball all-star game. Indeed, Drury could be seen mouthing the words of “My Old Kentucky Home” as one of his former players, David Young, sang prior to the first game of the summer series with Indiana.
