  • HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: Spencer...

    Spencer County rallied from an eight-point second quarter deficit, then held off Anderson County to post a 51-50 win Tuesday night in Taylorsville.

    Anderson led 22-14 four minutes before halftime, but Spencer's Ross Goodwin buried a 3-pointer that seemed to jumpstart the Bears. By halftime, the hosts had taken a 26-24 lead.

    Spencer expanded its lead to 35-28 heading into the final quarter, but Anderson recovered to tie it at 42 behind the 3-point shooting of Darrin Laswell.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats overcome...

    It is all about preparing for the tournaments. And with about a month to go before the 30th District meet tips off, Anderson County got a lesson from an old rival Friday night.

    “When you get into the post-season, you are going to play someone that has a bad record and has some talent,” Anderson coach Glen Drury said. “They are going to play with nothing to lose.

    Anderson found itself down 13-2 almost as soon as the Bearcats got off the bus at Western Hills, but somehow found a way to come back and grind out a 61-56 win.

  • WRESTLING: Bearcats win at...

    Anderson County wrestlers brought home first place in the Capital City Classic, held at Franklin County High School, for the second consecutive year on Saturday.

    The Bearcats won the 16-team event with 232 points, far ahead of second-place Louisville Western. Franklin County placed third while Ft. Campbell took fourth.

    Three Anderson wrestlers won their respective weight classes: T.W. Stockton (138 pounds), Eric Spencer (145) and Jake Vincent (160).

    Three others, Zack Perry (152), Alex Swartz (182) and Travis Kaelin (195), placed second.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: North...

    Junior guard David Levitch scored 23 points to lead North Oldham to a 53-42 come-from-behind win over Anderson County last Tuesday night at Goshen.

    Anderson had led 24-19 at the half, but North Oldham went on an 18-6 run to start the second half and then outscored Anderson 16-7 in the fourth quarter to seal the win.

    “We played well in the first half,” Anderson coach Glen Drury said, “but for some reason we left our emotions in the locker room at halftime. This was the first time this year we didn't play with passion.”

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    A win over Tates Creek might have been like apple pie after a meal of spinach on Saturday.

    “It was good to get back on track and get the bad taste out of our mouths,” Anderson County girls' basketball coach Tony Kays said after his team posted a 56-45 win in the East Jessamine Coaches vs. Cancer Classic.

    The final horn sounded about 16 hours after dropping a heart-breaker to South Oldham.

    Sydney Brown turned in one of her best offensive games of the year with 14 points, while Makenzie Cann added 13 for Anderson.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Region...

    For several years, the story was the same in the Eighth Region: Anderson County and South Oldham would be nipping at the heels of Shelby County, Oldham County and, until 2005, Scott County at the top of the region's pecking order.

    While Anderson finally broke through with a Sweet 16 trip three years ago, South Oldham has never been able to break through that barrier.

    When the 2011-12 season began, the Bearcats and Dragons were lumped together again, but this time as two perennially strong teams that were pegged to struggle.

  • COLUMN:Hickey's heart made...

    I'm pretty sure Glen Drury is a fan of John Calipari.

    The Anderson County boys' basketball coach has often marveled at how quickly Calipari got Kentucky back at the top of the national scene and how he has been successful in getting a different group of previously-coddled high school hot shots to play together as a team.

    After a win earlier this year, he talked about one of his players understanding the game much better and saying that the player had created some shots “off the dribble drive.”

  • Fultz undergoes surgery, lost...

    Lindsay Fultz, a junior at Georgetown College, has been lost to the Lady Tiger basketball team for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

    Fultz had redshirted a season and is considered a sophomore for athletic considerations. She graduated from Anderson County High School in 2009 as the school's second leading all-time scorer.

    Fultz underwent surgery on Jan. 10, according to her mother, Gina Fultz.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    Anderson County coach Tony Kays believes the best way to become the best is to play the best. The Lady Bearcats will continue to navigate a rugged schedule next Tuesday, Jan. 31, when they host Montgomery County, the team ranked at the top of the 10th Region.

    The Lady Indians stood at 15-5, the same as Anderson, after Friday's games. Montgomery has beaten South Oldham, the team that slipped by Anderson last week. Montgomery prevailed over South Oldham, 54-50, in the Gateway Holiday Classic at Montgomery on Dec. 28.
