  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: One step...

    GOSHEN – As Anderson County ascended to the top of the Eighth Region girls' basketball rankings this season, the buzz word has been focus.

    “Forget the lofty rankings,” has been the mantra. “Just stay focused and play hard. Everything else takes care of itself.”

    Monday night, the Lady Bearcats were more focused than someone who had just gotten a good report from the eye doctor.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Oldham...

    Anderson County's trek to the Sweet 16 ended just short Friday night.

    Two-time defending champion Oldham County pulled away in the fourth quarter to post a 79-64 win over the Bearcats in the boys' Eighth Region Tournament at Henry County High School.

    Clinging to a 55-54 lead with 6:37 to play, Oldham reeled off 10 straight points to take firm control.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats...

    GOSHEN – Grant County might not have known what it was running into Thursday night.

    Anderson County, ranked No. 2 in nearly every statewide poll for most of the girls' basketball season, ran off the first 11 points on its way to beating Grant 64-31 in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament at North Oldham High School.

  • BOYS' REGIONAL BASKETBALL:...

    NEW CASTLE – It all came down to one defensive stop.

    Ross Cox made it and Christian Estes sank two free throws with 2.2 seconds left to give Anderson County a 50-47 win over Owen County in a heart-stopper in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament Monday night.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    SHELBYVILLE – About the only surprise in Anderson County's 54-26 win over Spencer County in the 30th District semi-final last Tuesday was that the margin wasn't worse.

    Anderson controlled the opening tip, got a 3-pointer from Alex Avritt on its first possession and never looked back as the Lady Bearcats claimed their 20th straight win and improved to 28-1.

  • Dancers perform at Pacers'...
  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Sizzling...

    SHELBYVILLE – Every game is different, but Austin Cummins might wish things would turn out like they did last Tuesday every time he steps on the basketball court.

    A sophomore whose status for the post-season was in question just a few days before, Cummins blistered the nets for 36 points and a school record as Anderson County routed Shelby County, 77-37, in the boys' 30th District semi-final at Collins High School.

  • Directions to North Oldham High...

    The Eighth Region Girls' Basketball Tournament will be held at North Oldham High School for the first time.

  • GIRLS' REGIONAL PREVIEW:...

    It is now down to three games for the Anderson County girls' basketball team.

    Three Eighth Region Tournament games to put an exclamation point on a historic season or to have a bitter ending.

  • OUTDOORS: Now is the time to...

    It is a typical Kentucky February as I write this month’s column. It is actually sunny and 60 degrees, windy and feels more like early April with spring turkey season coming on. I just spent the last hour or so checking game cameras and walking some fence rows in search of antler sheds. The weather feels great today but by “typical Kentucky February” I mean things will change weather wise.
