  • 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.

  • FOOTBALL: Edmondson leads...

    Anderson County Middle School football player Bryce Edmonson was recently selected to participated in the 2013 Kentucky East-West All-Star Game in Frankfort. The game was sponsored by the Middle School Football Coaches Association and brought together some of the best middle school football players in the state.

    The year 2013 was a memorable one in Anderson County sports, usually because of the great accomplishments of individuals, but in at least one instance, the story goes well beyond the sidelines.

  • COLUMN: Playing and praying...

    Picking the biggest stories of the year can sometimes be easy, but usually it is tough. When pondering all that happened in 2013, I came to realize the biggest story to hit Anderson County sports might not have been a sports story at all, but was in a class all its own.

    Surely you remember the week before Anderson County's football home opener. The Bearcats were to play South Oldham.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: No. 2 E-...

    LEXINGTON – After his team had pulled the mild upset over No. 1 Anderson County in the championship game of the Republic Bank Classic last Monday, Tim Mudd, coach of No. 2 Elizabethtown, was quick note what the prestigious title meant.

    Very little.

    “There is still a lot of basketball to be played between now and the end of February,” Mudd said.

  • COLUMN: Plenty of sports...

    I can't really tell you the best Christmas present I ever got.

    That electric football game – Packers vs. Colts – I got when I was nine years old has to rank near the top.

    Over the years, I have gotten my share of gifts that would mean little to most people but are etched in my mind because of the circumstances surrounding them. There have been a few books on that list. It is a list that includes some photos and even a pair of socks that I knew meant more to the person who gave them than they did to me.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats get glimpse...

    The Anderson County boys' basketball team might have gotten a glimpse of what it could be Friday and Saturday in the Kentucky Bank Challenge, held at Rowan County High School.

    The Bearcats whipped a pair of eastern Kentucky teams, including Saturday's win over East Ridge, considered a darkhorse contender in the 15th Region. The Bearcats also came from behind with defeat Pikeville on Friday.

    Against East Ridge, the Bearcat defense was dominant in an impressive 59-45 win.

  • BASKETBALL: Early Anderson blitz...

    Anderson County needed this one.  No question.

    Living dangerously all season and seeing three of their first four games go down to the wire, the Bearcats welcomed a 67-34 romp past visiting Louisville Brown last Tuesday.

    Austin Cummins led the way with 23 points, 19 coming in the first quarter, when the Bearcats started putting together a 29-0 run that put things in order very quickly.
