  • BASEBALL: Bearcats to be on road

    Anderson County's high school baseball game with Washington County, originally scheduled for Barnes Memorial Field Wednesday afternoon, March 20, has been moved to Washington County due to Anderson's field being unplayable.

    The problems stem from a renovation of the infield. Wet weather has delayed completion of the project, according to Anderson coach L.W. Barnes, who said the Bearcats hope to be back on their home field by mid-April.

  • Sweet 16 notes: Lady Bearcats...

    There's always next year. It's just the nature of being a sports fan.

    Players had not emerged from Anderson County's locker room after the Final Four loss to Marion County Saturday when people were already talking about 2014.

    It could be one of those rare instances when the expectations could be warranted as the Lady Bearcats will probably be one of the favorites to win the whole shebang next year.

    Let that sink in for a minute: Anderson will be one of the teams given strong consideration as the team to beat in Kentucky in 2014.

  • COLUMN: Community pride in Lady...

    There are people who will try to convince you that no one cares about high school sports any more.

    They should have been in Diddle Arena last week.

    Then there are some who just say that high school sports really aren't important, that our schools should be spending all of their resources on academics.

    They should have been in Diddle, too.

    It seemed like everyone else in Lawrenceburg was there.

  • SWEET 16: Marion ends Lady...

    Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

  • SWEET 16 ONLINE EXTRA: Marion...

    BOWLING GREEN -- Ever since the first statewide rankings for girls' high school basketball came out around Jan. 1, the only question people have asked is "Who is No. 2?"

    They knew Marion County would be No. 1. The Lady Knights have been perched atop the Top 10, Top 25 or whatever number you want to use since the start of practice on Oct. 15 – actually before that – and have given no reason for anyone to think otherwise.

  • SWEET 16: History does not...

    BOWLING GREEN -- History would not repeat itself Friday afternoon. No way.

    Not with No. 1 Marion County waiting for the Anderson County girls' basketball team.

    The Lady Bearcats made sure of that with an impressive 65-23 shellacking of Shelby Valley in the quarter-final round of the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls' Sweet 16 being held at Western Kentucky University's Diddle Arena

  • Sweet 16 alters Anderson sports...

    Anderson County plays Shelby Valley in the state quarter-finals at 2:30 p.m. Friday.

  • SWEET 16 ONLINE EXTRA: Shelby...

    After outlasting the best team from western Kentucky in their Sweet 16 opener, Anderson County's Lady Bearcats turn their attention to the pride of eastern Kentucky, Shelby Valley, in Friday's quarterfinal action.

    Tipoff is set for 2:30 p.m., Eastern time, at Diddle Arena in Bowling Green.

  • SWEET 16: Lady Bearcats hold off...

    BOWLING GREEN – On a night when it seemed as though everything had been golden for Anderson County, it still game down to some old-fashioned, blue-collar work to give the Lady Bearcats a 65-54 win over Henderson County in the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls' Sweet 16 opener Wednesday night.

    Ken Rideout did not graduate from Anderson County High School, but he considers himself an alumnus and a member of the Anderson Class of 1976.

    He, more than anyone in the world, might have a unique take on Wednesday's girls' Sweet 16 game between Anderson County and Henderson County. While living in Lawrenceburg, one of Ken's best friends was Tony Kays, current coach of the Lady Bearcats.
