  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    It was simply an Anderson County avalanche.

    The Lady Bearcats exploded with 22-0 run that spanned the first and second quarters that powered them to a 72-49 30th District win over visiting Shelby last Wednesday night.

    By the time Shelby crawled from under the onslaught, any hope of a rescue was long gone.

    “Our defense was good and we were able to turn them over some with our press,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said, “and we were taking good shots.”

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    Even without the school’s all-time leading scorer in the lineup, Anderson County had more than enough firepower at Oldham County last Tuesday.

    The Lady Bearcats pulled away from pesky Oldham to post a 63-53 win over their Eighth Region foe.

    Anderson was without leading scorer Eriel McKee, who was ailing. Junior Corrin Robinson started in McKee’s absence.

  • Merry Christmas from some...

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Red River...

    Anderson County boys’ basketball coach Glen Drury has a very succinct assessment of the Bearcats’ appearance in the Red River Classic at Powell County High School.

    “This is not a cupcake tournament,” he says.

    The three-day tournament tips off Thursday, Dec. 26 when Tates Creek takes on Wolfe County, a team that has already beaten Anderson this year, at 2 p.m.

    The Bearcats get tournament play underway when they take on Estill County in the next game at 3:30 p.m. Each team is guaranteed three games.

  • FOOTBALL: Cox named to Class of...

    Anderson County High School football player Ross Cox has been named to the Class of the Commonwealth team, as selected by the Lexington Herald-Leader.

    A 6-foot-3, 215-pound senior, Cox's selection to the 22-man team was announced in Sunday's editions of the paper.

  • OUTDOORS: Time flies! Enjoy the...

    I want to start out this month’s column by dedicating this writing in memory of Kenny Detherage. Kenny was an avid outdoorsman and the Lilly/Detherage clans have always been like a family. I’ll never forget the many dove hunts the two families shared together over the years, the goat cookings and the many other good times. As outdoorsmen, I feel I can speak for us all; we have lost a great one. Kenny lost his battle with cancer on November 30, 2013. Thoughts and prayers are with this wonderful family.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Anderson...

    Anderson County has played one of the top teams in Indiana girls' basketball, a team with three Division I prospects. The Lady Bearcats, ranked No. 1 in Kentucky, have handled a Top 5 team and a Top 25 team. They have also beaten a two-time defending regional champion.

    But the most important game of the season, so far, graces the schedule tonight, Wednesday, Dec. 18. Shelby County comes to town.

  • FOOTBALL: Peach says Bearcats...

    The way Anderson County football finished is undoubtedly a testament to where the program stands and what the expectations are.

    Anyone close to the Bearcats knows that, including head coach Mark Peach.

    Anderson finished the year at 11-3 and made it to the state Class 5A semi-finals before losing. To many,  that loss was a disappointing end to a great season.

  • BASKETBALL: Oldham explodes in...

    Oldham County exploded in the third quarter to overcome Anderson County and record a 79-71 win in an early-season matchup of Eighth Region contenders Tuesday night in Buckner.

    The Colonels outpointed the Bearcats, 28-8, in the decisive third frame to overcome the Bearcats' 34-27 halftime advantage. Oldham improved to 3-0 on the year while Anderson dropped to 1-1.

    “In the first half, we came out and executed what we wanted to do very well,” said Anderson coach Glen Drury. “We executed our offense and our defense was good.”

  • BASKETBALL: Wolfe stuns Bearcats...

    Wolfe County's Bradley Lawson capped a hot-shooting night with a 3-pointer at the buzzer to defeat Anderson County, 74-73, in the Kentucky Bank Classic at Bourbon County Saturday afternoon.

    Anderson had taken a 73-71 lead when Christian Estes sank a pair of free throws with six seconds to play.

    But after a Wolfe timeout, Lawson connected on his fifth bomb of the day as time expired. Lawson finished with 24 points to lead Wolfe County, which improved to 3-1 on the year.

    Anderson fell to 1-2.
