  • Weather cancels some Saturday...

    UPDATED 9:45 a.m. Saturday: Anderson County girls' basketball game with Sacred Heart at Mercy Academy in Louisville has been canceled. Anderson athletic director Rick Salle said, in a text message, "We are not sending a bus. Too dangerous so we have canceled (the) girls' game."

    Anderson could play Sacred Heart next Saturday, Feb. 1, in the Louisville Invitational Tournament semifinals.  Anderson could also play Ballard, a team the Lady Bearcats were to have played last Saturday, in the LIT quarterfinals Friday night.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats sizzle nets...

    Even a night when Anderson County was burning the nets was not enough in a district matchup at Collins last Tuesday.

    The Bearcats shot better than 73 percent (19-for-26) and missed just one two-point field goal attempt all night but still came up short in a 63-55 decision that dropped the Bearcats to 0-2 in 30th District play.

  • BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats hungry...

    It's been over four years since that November afternoon when the girls' basketball team from Anderson County Middle School was crowned the best in Kentucky.

    At Rupp Arena that Friday after Thanksgiving, the Lady Mustangs whipped Whitley County, got a big trophy and went back to work.

  • Barnes inducted into Hall of Fame

    Anderson County High School baseball coach L. W. Barnes was inducted into the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame last week.

  • BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats to...

    It's all about getting better.

    Coach Tony Kays sprinkled the Lady Bearcats' schedule with rugged teams from out of the region, and even out of the state, with the intention being to pay dividends in the regional and state tournaments.

    Such is the case Friday and Saturday when the Lady Bearcats have two monumental tests in the Raatz Fence Classic at Mercy Academy in Louisville.

  • COLUMN: No pedestal for Farmer,...

    Last week's chapter of the Richie Farmer saga was more than the wheels of justice turning.

    It was a dagger through the heart of a story -- a hometown, feel good story that evolved into a sordid nightmare. And while no one can excuse the basketball legend's actions as Kentucky's Commissioner of Agriculture, the whole affair should serve to make us pause and look at ourselves and how we view those who are gifted at playing a game.

  • SWIMMING: Swimmers steady in...

    Anderson County swimmers showed consistency in a small, but competitive meet at Falling Springs Recreation Center in Versailles last Wednesday.

    “We didn't have a whole lot of significant time drops, but not too many time adds either,” said Anderson coach Karla Williams. “Rebekah Cardwell was very consistent and dropped time in every one of her events. I am also very happy with Josh Lindsey. Josh joined our team at mid-season and has consistently dropped time in every event he has swum in.”

  • Tuesday basketball games canceled

    Tuesday's Anderson County basketball games have been canceled, according to school athletic director Rick Sallee. No make-up dates for these games or other games called off due to inclement weather have been announced.

    The Anderson girls were to have played at Shelby County while the boys' team was scheduled to host North Oldham.

    Updates will be posted as they become available.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Bearcats...

    Anderson County will be glad to see its home court again.

    Finally.

    The Bearcats return to Glen Drury Court Thursday night when they host Eighth Region foe Carroll County at 7:30 p.m. It will be Anderson's first home game since Dec. 17, when the Bearcats plastered Louisville Brown, 67-34.

    Since then the Bearcats had split six games, all away from the friendly home court, but have lost three straight, two of those by 23 points each.
