  • OPINION: Transfer rules need to...

    The situation regarding transfers in Kentucky high school sports is simply getting out of hand and I fear that it will eventually threaten prep sports as we know them.

  • DISTRICT TOURNEY THOUGHTS:...

    There were no major surprises in the first round of the 30th District Tournaments, being held this week at Anderson County High School.

    As expected, the Anderson County and Collins girls' teams had easy times in getting by Spencer County and Shelby County in the first round. Neither Anderson nor Collins played particularly well, undoubtedly because they were such heavy favorites.

    It is almost time to renew your annual fishing license. The new license year begins March 1.

    This coming year presents some new opportunities to catch rainbow trout, blue catfish, redear sunfish, also known as shellcrackers, and white crappie.

    Regional draws this weekend

    The Eighth Region tournaments get underway next week with the girls' tournament tipping off Monday, Feb. 27 at Anderson County High School. It will be the first time Anderson has ever hosted a basketball regional. The boys' tournament will get underway on Wednesday, Feb. 29 at Henry County, where the tournament has been held every year since 1963.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Eighth...

    Every basketball season, one of the questions around Kentucky high school basketball is simply, “Which region is the toughest?”

    From the looks of the statewide computer polls, the Eighth Region has regained its place as one of Kentucky's best in girls' basketball this year.

  • Rams improved despite losses to...

    Community Christian Academy of Independence defeated home-standing Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg, 87-63, recently.

    The Crusaders might be the best team the Rams will face all season. Community Christian is an experienced team that plays five seniors with the majority of them being the starters. Head coach Ryan Smith said before the game that a couple of the starters have been playing on the same team since middle school.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Bearcats...

    Darrin Laswell scored 17 points, leading four Anderson County players in double figures as the Bearcats defeated Kentucky Country Day, 59-48, last Tuesday in Louisville.

    “I thought we played one of our better games,” Anderson head coach Glen Drury. “We got a lot of good games out of a lot of kids down there.”

    Anderson jumped to a 15-10 lead and never looked back against a team that finished the regular season at 14-12.

  • WRESTLING: Fitzpatrick earns...

    LEXINGTON – With the state high school wrestling tournament moving to the Kentucky Horse Park this year, it might be fitting to say that Anderson County simply did not get out of the gate well.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    No one can know how many people have taken notice, but Anderson County has been giving all indications that it has every intention of defending its home court in the post-season.

    The Lady Bearcats won their seventh straight game, and 13th out of 14, in a dominating performance against visiting Franklin County Friday night.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL:...

    You can take all the old sports clichés about a one-point thriller, tie them up, roll them all together as one and still not describe Anderson County's win over Franklin County Friday night.

    The will to win. Refuse to lose. Anything can happen in a rivalry game. Senior Night is special.

    They were all true as the Bearcats scored the last six points to get their first win over their northern neighbors since 2008.
