  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Pressing...

    Anderson County's girls' basketball team showed exactly what some observers had been talking about in the off-season last Tuesday.

    After creating some off-season buzz with a second place finish in the state AAU tournament, the Lady Bearcats, some said, could be “scary good.”

    For eight minutes in their game against visiting Oldham County, Anderson showed why. The Lady Bearcats scored the first 15 points en route to a 68-41 whipping of their regional rival.

  • Middle schoolers have big day

    The Anderson County Middle School wrestlers put together a big day Saturday in a meet with E.J. Hayes and Lexington Christian. The meet was held at Anderson County Middle School.

    Four Anderson wrestlers, Jonah Perry, Andrew Goodlett, Travis Walling and Jackson Frazier, were all unbeaten Saturday. Perry won four bouts while Goodlett, Walling and Frazier took three. Perry is 9-0 on the year at 92 pounds, while Goodlett is 8-0 at 130. Walling is 7-0 at 140.

    Frazier wrestles in the 113-pound class.

  • Anderson swimmers compete at...

    The Anderson County High School swim team fared well in a four-team event, hosted by Scott County, last Wednesday night in Georgetown.

    The Anderson boys scored 103 points and placed second behind Scott County, which had 147. The Anderson girls were third, with 69 points,  behind Scott (212) and West Jessamine (121). East Jessamine rounded out the field.

  • UK looking to Stoops for new...

    The excitement over the University of Kentucky's hiring of Mark Stoops as its new head football coach isn't confined to a loyal fan base.

    While the Big Blue Nation has been abuzz since UK athletic director Mitch Barnhart announced, via Twitter, that Stoops had been hired last Tuesday, those who have worn the Blue and White on Saturdays might be even more excited about the guy with the famous football name taking on the challenge of turning around the Wildcats' football fortunes.

  • Dickerson fond of former coach...

    There are probably few people in Kentucky that wanted Joker Phillips to succeed as Kentucky football coach than Jason Dickerson.

    The Anderson County resident played at Kentucky and for much of that time, Phillips served as an assistant coach under Rich Brooks. It pained Dickerson to see Kentucky's football fortunes slip so badly under Phillips' watch.

  • Maggard, Dickerson like Barnhart...

    Freddie Maggard and Jason Dickerson are both pleased with the way athletic director Mitch Barnhart went about hiring Mark Stoops as the new University of Kentucky football coach. While Stoops acknowledged during his introductory press conference that he reached out to Barnhart first, there is little doubt that the search was Barnhart's.

  • Wrestling: McDaniel leads Mat...

    The Anderson County High School wrestling team continued its impressive early-season showing, winning four of five matches in the Wayne County Duals, held Saturday.

    Chris McDaniel (126 pounds) led the Bearcats with a perfect day. McDaniel scored pins in each of his five bouts. Taylor Logsdon and Alex Swartz put four opponents' shoulders on the mat and won all five bouts. Cody Dillow also won all five of his bouts with three pins.
