  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    CRESTWOOD – There are times when a basketball team just needs one of those cruise control games.

    That's not to say Anderson County's girls were just going through the motions during their 69-40 win at South Oldham last Tuesday. Far from it.

    When the Lady Bearcats needed to put the hammer down, they did, outscoring South 16-2 over the first five minutes of the third quarter to clinch their 21st win in 25 games this season.

  • COLUMN: Their games, their way

    Let's face it. We live in basketball country.

    If you fail to or, probably more accurately, refuse to acknowledge that, well, there just isn't much I can do.

  • Signs with Shorter

    Hannah Washington, of Cumming, Ga., recently signed to play soccer with Shorter University. She is the granddaughter of Darrell and Janice Clark of Lawrenceburg.

  • Mr. and Miss Basketball Media Day

    Anderson County basketball was well represented at the Mr. and Miss Basketball Media Day, held Sunday in Lexington.

  • Bearcats get ready for district...

    A season that saw high hopes go south suddenly has the possibility of a happy ending for Anderson County boys' basketball.

    The Bearcats host longtime rival Franklin County in the regular-season finale Friday night at 7:30 p.m. Then Anderson looks to begin its second season against Collins, the team ranked at the top of the Eighth Region, in the first round of the 30th District Tournament next Tuesday at Shelby County High School.

  • SWIMMING: Six Anderson swimmers...

    Six Anderson County swimmers advanced into the second day of competition at the Region 3 meet, hosted by Russell County High School.

    The Bearcat boys' team had a nice showing with two relay teams and two individuals making it to Saturday, while Kylie Gehefer advanced in the girls' 100-yard breaststroke.

    “Our boys did a fantastic job and Kylie Gehefer kept the women's team afloat with her two points,” said Anderson coach Karla Williams.

  • WRESTLING: Early takedown raises...

    FRANKFORT – When Isaac Mason took his opponent down, he knew there was a chance his arm would be raised.

    Mason, an Anderson County junior, recorded what might have been the biggest upset of the finals round when he decisioned top-seeded Matthew Davis of South Oldham, 10-3, to win the 285-pound championship of the Region 5 Wrestling Tournament at Western Hills High School on Saturday.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    It seems so fitting that Lafayette will be visiting Anderson County for Thursday's girls' basketball game.

    Back on Dec. 1, 2009, the Lady Generals came to town only to leave with a 52-48 double overtime loss. Two of the heroes of that Anderson team, Eriel McKee and Makenzie Cann, were eighth-graders who would play key roles in the Lady Bearcats' run to the state tournament three months later.

  • FOOTBALL: Cox follows lifelong...

    Ross Cox has rushed the field many times at Commonwealth Stadium. If everything goes as planned, he won't have to do that again over the next four or five years.

    He plans on already being there if Kentucky records some big football victories.

    Cox, an Anderson County High School senior, publicly announced last Thursday what had long been speculated that he was going to walk on to play football at the University of Kentucky.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Stingy...

    There is good defense, then there is just downright stinginess.

    Anderson County was mighty happy after having a first half when the Bearcats became first-class tightwads last Thursday. Anderson built a 29-16 halftime lead on the way to a 67-55 win over Owen County.
