    Anderson County football player Ross Cox has been selected to play in the annual National Guard Border Bowl football game, to be held at the University of the Cumberlands on Saturday, Jan. 11. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Bearcats...

    No hype is needed for the next two dates on the Anderson County boys' basketball schedule.

    It's really very simple: Shelby County on Friday and Collins on Tuesday are the biggest regular-season games on the Bearcats' schedule. It's not even close.

    Both are 30th District foes and at least earning a split is imperative for a good seed in the district tournament at the end of the year. Win both and the Bearcats only need to beat a young, but improving, Spencer County team for the No. 1 seed.

  • FOOTBALL: Cox, Rose get more all...

    Anderson County football seniors Ross Cox and Joe Rose received more statewide recognition when they were named all-state by the Associated Press last week.

    Cox, a wide receiver, was a first team selection. He had previously been selected to the Lexington Herald-Leader's Class of the Commonwealth team and had been a third team selection on the Courier-Journal all-state team.

  • COLUMN: First half of season has...

    It seems strange to be already talking about the mid-point of the basketball season, but that is about where we are this first full week of the year.

    The high school district tournaments get underway across Kentucky on Feb. 24, meaning this is the sixth week in a 12-week season. You do the math.

  • Showdown between No. 1 Anderson...

    The girls' basketball triple-header featuring Anderson County, ranked No. 1 in Rating the State, and Franklin County, No. 3 in the same rating, has been rescheduled again.

    The game will now be played on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at Anderson County. Freshmen will play at 5:15, junior varsity at 6:30 and varsity at approximately 7:45 p.m.

    The game had originally been set for Jan. 7, then moved to Jan. 8 before the latest rescheduling.

    Wide receiver Ross Cox and kicker Joe Rose were both named third team selections. Lineman Darius Harvey was named an honorable mention selection as a defensive lineman.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats stumble in...

    Anderson County seemed to be avoiding the customary sluggishness of the holiday season in the Red River Classic at Powell County High School last week but the uptick was short-lived.

    Anderson routed Estill County in the tournament's first round, but the Bearcats were spanked by eventual tournament champion Wolfe County in the semifinal, then dropped an overtime thriller to the host school in the third-place game Saturday night.
