  • WRESTLING: Mat Mustangs second...

    The Anderson County Middle School wrestling team placed second in the Johnson County Duals, held Saturday. Ten middle school teams from Kentucky, Ohio and Virginia participated in the meet. Anderson defeated Sheldon Clark, Chesapeake (Ohio) and Fairland (Ohio) before losing to Grundy (Va.) in the finals. Eighth-grader R.J. Boies went 4-0 on the day to improve to 12-0 on the season.

  • Lady Bearcats preach virtues of...

    There have probably been fire-breathing, brimstone-raining sermons nicer than the one delivered by Anderson County last Tuesday.

    The top-ranked Lady Bearcats burned Christian Academy of Louisville with crisp ball movement and rained 3-pointers – 12 of them, if you are counting – on the visitors in a 73-30 romp.

    And, it could have been worse.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats literally...

    Some basketball coaches believe in “throwing them to the wolves” in an effort to toughen teams up, but Anderson County boys' basketball coach Glen Drury is literally doing that Saturday.

    The Bearcats take on Wolfe County – yes, the mascot is a wolf – during Saturday's Kentucky Bank Classic at Bourbon County High School.

  • BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats turn...

    Anderson County rallied from a five-point deficit to defeat upset-minded Dunbar in girls' basketball action last Thursday in Lexington.

    Down 34-29, the Lady Bearcats reeled off the next 13 points to take control for their second win of the season.

    “We know that everyone is going to bring their best game against us,” said Tony Kays, coach of the top-ranked Lady Bearcats.

  • BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats to...

    Since John Calipari and Tom Crean could not come to an agreeement on how to play that formerly annual December love-fest, it must have been left up to the high schools.

    At one of Indiana's best girls' basketball teams is next on the agenda for Anderson County's top-ranked Lady Bearcats.

  • BASKETBALL: Carson's 54...

    Things might not go exactly according to the prescribed script but the final ending is all that really matters.

    East Jessamine junior Ronnie Carson lit up host Anderson County for 54 points, a Jaguar record, but the Bearcats held on to prevail 94-91 in boys' basketball action Thursday night.

  • WRESTLING: Only shot gives Mat...

    BARDSTOWN – It was kind of like being down five, lining up at the opponent's 25-yard-line and having a minute to play.

    Anderson County knew there was only one path to a first-ever win over perennial power LaRue County.

    “I told Isaac Mason, 'We need a pin,'” a beaming Anderson coach David Lannum said moments after the Bearcats had scored a 42-41 win in the Nelson County quad-match last Wednesday.

  • Rams take a pair of close ones

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg boys' basketball team held on for a 54-51 win over host Danville Christian on Nov. 26.

  • Tired phone cries foul

    A word to the wise if you are attending basketball games this winter: Make sure your cell phone is fully charged.

    “Did you wear your phone out tweeting about this one,” Anderson County boys' basketball coach Glen Drury asked as we got ready for the usual post-game interview last Thursday.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Anderson...

    HODGENVILLE – On a day when the big-time talent was on display, it was some unheralded reserves who shone the brightest.

    Sophomore Kaci Currens came off the bench to score 16 points while junior Corrin Robinson added 11 to boost top-ranked Anderson County to a 69-51 win over host LaRue County in the Corky Cox Classic at LaRue County High School on Saturday.
