  • 100 years of basketball: 'I...

    Surrounded by memorabilia from Kavanaugh High School, C.C. Fallis leaves little doubt that he is a Tiger.
    Always has been, always will be.

    “Lawrenceburg (High School) wanted me to go there and play football, but I had already made up my mind,” smiles Fallis, who served as co-captain of the last Kavanaugh Tiger basketball team.
    Now 80, Fallis is still a regular at Kentucky Wildcat games, but his first passion was orange and black.

  • 100 years of basketball: Simple...

    It all started very simply. There was no fanfare when basketball made its way into Anderson County.
    Nearly 100 years later, an estimated 7,000 red-clad Anderson County basketball fans piled into Rupp Arena in Lexington to watch the Bearcats play in the Kentucky High School state tournament. In between, the sport's hold on the county has been strong. And the county's influence on the sport became widely known around the state's borders.

  • 100 years of Anderson County...

    One hundred years.
    Those three words sound like an eternity. In the overall history of the world, 100 years of a small town's love affair with a very simple game would seem rather insignificant.
    But don't tell that to the 7,000 or so Anderson County Bearcat fans who streamed into Rupp Arena for the Kentucky state tournament in 2009.
    Don't tell that to the people that say that Anderson County is poised to become one of the state's girls' basketball powers over the next few years.

  • SO CLOSE!

    Anderson County was nearly perfect on the football field Friday night.

  • Some real Friday Night Lights

    Well, Anderson County, how did you like some real Friday Night Lights?
    Just for a few minutes, forget the fact that John Hardin overcame a late deficit to defeat Anderson in the Class 5A, Region 2 championship game Friday night. The hurt, especially for the  nine seniors that put on shoulder pads for the final time as Anderson County High School students, will last. There is no denying that. The tears shed in the Bearcats' post-game meeting were profuse.

  • Rams' middle schoolers open...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg Rams middle school basketball team has played three games so far this season, winning all three. 

  • Wishing hunting season had...

  • Picking the best ever not so easy

    Ralph Beard or John Wall?
    Really, who was the better guard? Was it Beard, the leader of Kentucky's Fabulous Five of the 1947 and 1948, or Wall, who did things on the basketball court never before seen in Lexington?
    Wall's year in Lexington might have done as much to educate fans who had never seen Beard – virtually everyone – due to several TV outlets doing stories on the comparison and showing 63-year-old film of Beard shooting from well out on the floor or dominating a defense.

  • Bearcat season ends in final...

    John Hardin quarterback Eli Mitchell found Jeremy Harness open in the end zone with 2:16 to play to give the top-ranked Bulldogs a 28-24 win over Anderson County in the Class 5A, Region 2 championship football game.
