  • Rams' middle schoolers open...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg Rams middle school basketball team has played three games so far this season, winning all three. 

  • Wishing hunting season had...

  • Picking the best ever not so easy

    Ralph Beard or John Wall?
    Really, who was the better guard? Was it Beard, the leader of Kentucky's Fabulous Five of the 1947 and 1948, or Wall, who did things on the basketball court never before seen in Lexington?
    Wall's year in Lexington might have done as much to educate fans who had never seen Beard – virtually everyone – due to several TV outlets doing stories on the comparison and showing 63-year-old film of Beard shooting from well out on the floor or dominating a defense.

  • Bearcat season ends in final...

    John Hardin quarterback Eli Mitchell found Jeremy Harness open in the end zone with 2:16 to play to give the top-ranked Bulldogs a 28-24 win over Anderson County in the Class 5A, Region 2 championship football game.

  • Bearcats out to prove state...

    Everyone knows the magnitude of the challenge facing Anderson County on the football field Friday night.

  • Just hold the mushrooms

    We only thought Anderson County's football turnaround came about when Blake Curtsinger and Matt Sprague blocked a Bullitt Central extra point, in overtime, back on Oct. 8.
    Makes sense, you know. The Bearcats were 3-3, teetering on the brink of .500 or less. Since then, they are riding a six-game win streak, managed to win only the third district title in school history and have rolled to a pair of playoff wins for the first time since Kentucky started determining state football champions with a tournament in 1959.

  • Selection of All-Time Team tips...

    (Editor's note: This article contains some of the writer's personal observations and explanations of the “All-time team” selection process.)
    Selecting the best of the best to ever play basketball in Anderson County is not really a new idea. In the 25 years I have been writing about sports, I have been asked countless times, “How does this player compare to that player?”
    The question has come from Anderson CountyBearcat faithful and opposing fans alike.

  • Middle school teams key to...

    If you ever doubt the importance of a strong middle school sports program, just check back to March 10. That night, the Anderson County Middle School girls' basketball team took on Clay County in the high school state tournament.

    Or so went the joke that made its way around Lawrenceburg and found its way to Bowling Green eight months ago.

  • Hopes high for CAL season

    With seven returning players, including four starters, expectations are high for Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg basketball in 2010-11.

    The Rams have already gotten their season underway, splitting their first two games, in a year when the Rams will be playing two Australian national teams and several of the top Christian school teams in Kentucky.
    Christian Academy will also be playing Kentucky School for the Deaf, a public school.

  • Bearcats advance to regional...

    Anderson County scored three times in the first seven minutes, then went on to an impressive 42-7 win over visiting Bullitt  Central in the Class 5A, Region 2 football semifinal on Friday night.
    The Bearcats move on to play John Hardin for the regional championship next Friday. That game will also be played at Anderson.
