  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Oldham...

    NEW CASTLE – All Anderson County ever wanted was a chance.

    It was a wish that had dominated off-season workouts. It drove the Bearcats when they gathered for pre-season practice in October.

    “We have a chance to be good,” Coach Glen Drury repeatedly said during that time.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Smith,...

    Two Anderson County High School basketball players were named to the Eighth Region's All-Tournament team following the regional championship game Saturday night at Henry County High School. Anderson County's Christian Estes and Jay Smith were selected to the squad. Estes scored 29 points in two games while Smith tallied 34 in leading the Bearcats to the regional semi-finals.

  • Channel catfish, rainbow trout...

  • Girls' Eighth Region...

    The girls' Eighth Region basketball tournament championship game between Anderson County and Simon Kenton, scheduled for Tuesday night, has been postponed until Wednesday, March 6. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. at North Oldham High School.

  • REGIONAL FINAL PREVIEW: Lady...

    (Editor's note: Due to the impending winter weather, the Eighth Region championship game was postponed after this preview was posted. Anderson County will play Simon Kenton for the title on Wednesday, March 6 at 7 p.m. at North Oldham High School.)

     

    The sting still drives Anderson County's girls' basketball team.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: One step...

    GOSHEN – As Anderson County ascended to the top of the Eighth Region girls' basketball rankings this season, the buzz word has been focus.

    “Forget the lofty rankings,” has been the mantra. “Just stay focused and play hard. Everything else takes care of itself.”

    Monday night, the Lady Bearcats were more focused than someone who had just gotten a good report from the eye doctor.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Oldham...

    Anderson County's trek to the Sweet 16 ended just short Friday night.

    Two-time defending champion Oldham County pulled away in the fourth quarter to post a 79-64 win over the Bearcats in the boys' Eighth Region Tournament at Henry County High School.

    Clinging to a 55-54 lead with 6:37 to play, Oldham reeled off 10 straight points to take firm control.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats...

    GOSHEN – Grant County might not have known what it was running into Thursday night.

    Anderson County, ranked No. 2 in nearly every statewide poll for most of the girls' basketball season, ran off the first 11 points on its way to beating Grant 64-31 in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament at North Oldham High School.

  • BOYS' REGIONAL BASKETBALL:...

    NEW CASTLE – It all came down to one defensive stop.

    Ross Cox made it and Christian Estes sank two free throws with 2.2 seconds left to give Anderson County a 50-47 win over Owen County in a heart-stopper in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament Monday night.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    SHELBYVILLE – About the only surprise in Anderson County's 54-26 win over Spencer County in the 30th District semi-final last Tuesday was that the margin wasn't worse.

    Anderson controlled the opening tip, got a 3-pointer from Alex Avritt on its first possession and never looked back as the Lady Bearcats claimed their 20th straight win and improved to 28-1.
