Today's Sports

  • FOOTBALL: Anderson football...

    Anderson County High School juniors Ross Cox and Darius Harvey were named honorable mention selections on The Courier-Journal all-state football team.

    The prestigious team, selected by the state's coaches, was announced on Christmas Day.

    Cox was listed as a wide receiver. He caught 51 passes for 1,153 yards and 13 touchdowns.

  • COLUMN: Local fans hope it will...

    For years, we have known that the number “13” is unlucky. Many buildings don't have a 13th floor. Ball players – Wilt Chamberlain, A-Rod, Marino and Concepcion are some notable exceptions – avoid the number like it is an injury waiting to happen.

    But what about 2013?

  • Top sports stories of 2012 range...

    Trying to come up with a list of the top Anderson County sports stories of 2012 is not an easy proposition for several reasons.

    First, the county is, for the most part, only home to scholastic sports. Second, no Anderson County team had a mega-season, as had been the case every year since 2007, when at least one local team vastly exceeded expectations or earned a berth in the Kentucky state tournament.

    Or both.

    The year that ended Monday was one that saw a lot of Anderson County teams have very good years, but not the eye-poppers to remember.

  • Bearcat wrestlers medal at...

    Seven Anderson County wrestlers medaled in the prestigious Lafayette Invitational, held on Dec. 22 in Lexington.

    Cody Dillow split four bouts to place fifth at 152 pounds, the highest-ranking Anderson wrestler in the tournament. Among Dillow's wins were pins over wrestlers from Male and Moore.

    Dillon Harrod split four bouts to finish sixth in the tournament. He triumphed in one of the closest bouts of the day, winning a 3-2 decision over a wrestler from Henry Clay.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

     

    FRANKFORT – The Capital City Showdown could have easily been called the Anderson County Beatdown.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Bearcats...

     

    Anderson County looked like it was ready to defend its championship in the Bracken County Holiday Classic until Mother Nature put on a suffocating full-court press.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Bearcats...

    A year ago, it became apparent that Anderson County had a good boys' basketball team during the Bracken County Holiday Tournament.

    The Bearcats return to defend their title and, perhaps, look to find a some answers in some holes that have opened during the first few weeks of the current season.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Girls to...

    The Anderson County girls' basketball team did not schedule a long trip during the holidays this year. It looks like the Lady Bearcats will be tested just fine in their own back yard.

    Over the weekend, Anderson was to have played in the Republic Bank Classic at Lexington Catholic, where the Lady Bearcats could have met three top 10 teams in two days.

  • COLUMN: An odd Christmas wish...

    I really didn't expect to get what I really want under the Christmas tree. I mean, is it really too much to ask to have a winning lottery ticket?

    I would even take one a visit from whoever it is that has followed Ed McMahon. You know, Publisher's Clearing House. I'm not greedy. I don't need 500 mil or anything like that. Only a 10 or 12 followed by six zeroes would suffice.

  • OUTDOORS: Second amendment...

    I want to start my final column of the year 2012 with a quote many have heard before and John Herndon actually used in his column a few weeks back: “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” I could not agree more and will leave it at that.
