  • Bearcat basketball game canceled

    The Anderson County boys' basketball game with McCreary Central, scheduled for Saturday night, Feb. 5, has been canceled. No make-up date, if any, has been announced.

    Friday, Anderson dropped a 57-44 decision at Woodford County.

    The Bearcats return to action Tuesday, Feb. 8, when they host regional foe Henry County at 7:30 p.m.

    See the Feb. 9 edition of The Anderson News for complete Bearcat coverage.

  • Shelby stuns Bearcats on last-...

    Shelby County's Eric Schreiner banked in a desperation 3-pointer as time expired to lift the Rockets to a 55-54 win over Anderson County in 30th District play Wednesday night.


    “We did everything we could to prevent a three without fouling and he hits one like that,” sighed Anderson coach Glen Drury. “It was bad luck. That is the only way you can explain it. I have never been around so much bad luck in one season.”

  • Things changed, but stayed the...

    Forget that the old Anderson County-Shelby County rivalry was supposed to have died. Forget the fact that Collins High took most of Shelby's athletes when the new school opened in August.


    None of that will matter when Shelby visits Anderson tonight, Wednesday, Feb. 2. There won't be a Sweet 16 berth on the line. It won't even decide the top dog in the 30th District, like the old rivalry did.


    But tonight is simply the most important basketball game of the season for the Anderson County boys’ basketball team.

  • Disc golfers really do Slide and...

    It would not be often that a golfer's score on a single hole would be above the temperature outside. It would be even more rare to find a golfer who would not be too upset over such a scenario.

    But the second annual Slide and Glide tournament put on by the Lawrenceburg Disc Golf Association on Saturday might be the exception.

    When a group of 32 golfers teed off on the Anderson County Community Park course, the temperature stood at 6 degrees. By the time they had finished 36 holes, it had warmed up to a balmy 26 degrees, according to Rex Richardson, a spokesman for the association.
