  • Christian Academy routs Danville...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg Rams defeated Danville Christian 65-21 in boys’ high school basketball action on Dec. 2. The game was played at the Anderson County Early Childhood Center.

    This was the second meeting of the season, with CAL winning the first by 34 points.

    Coming into this game, Ram coach Cory Robinson was in a difficult position, not wanting to allow his players to play without intensity, but also desiring to teach the life lesson of being merciful.

  • COLUMN: Tebow talk a refreshing...

    This year, I don’t think I will have to worry too much about people forgetting Jesus Christ during Christmas season.

    Tim Tebow has taken care of that.

    Or more specifically, the reactions of misguided souls who are curiously offended by his open profession of his Christian faith have made sure sports fans are talking about Christ at Christmas.

    Unfortunately, that talk says a lot about us as people, no matter what one thinks of how Tim Tebow chooses to live what he believes.

  • Anderson sweeps Shelby in...

    Anderson County's boys pulled away in the second half while the Lady Bearcats cruised in a doubleheader sweep in high school basketball action Friday night at Shelby County.

    The Bearcats improved to 4-0, opening some daylight in the third quarter then pulling away in the fourth quarter for an 87-77 win over the pesky Rockets.

    Jay Smith scored 13 of his game-high 23 points in the final two minutes to seal the win. Smith hit 11-of-12 free throws to keep Shelby at bay.

  • Christian Academy defeats Blue...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg Rams traveled to Lexington last Tuesday, coming away with a 57-48 win over Bluegrass Baptist Eagles in a game closer than the score indicated. Christian Academy ran its record to 8-1 with the victory.

    Fitzpatrick plays in Best of Bluegrass

    Anderson County High School senior Chris Fitzpatrick participated in the Best of the Bluegrass all-star football game, held at St. Xavier High School in Louisville on Sunday.

    Fitzpatrick was a member of the Kentucky all-stars team, which took on a team of all-stars from the Louisville metro area.

  • COLUMN: Times are a-changin...

    LEXINGTON – This time, there was no need for a length of the court pass. No need to argue whether someone should have been guarding the ball or playing centerfield.

    And, there was no need to rally from 17 down with 11 minutes to go.

    But it was still Kentucky and Duke.

  • FOOTBALL: Peach looks back on...

    The process is still ongoing for Anderson County football.

    Back when he was hired to restore Bearcat football in December of 2004, Mark Peach uttered some words rarely heard in conjunction with Anderson County and football.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Improved...

    Anderson County was supposed to be a better basketball team this year than it was last season. If the early returns are any indication, the Bearcats will be living up to those expectations.

    Anderson is now 3-0 after wins over Garrard County and Whitley County last week.

    The Bearcats opened their home season with an impressive 59-43 win over a Garrard County team that some feel might be worthy of some attention in the 12th Region.

  • Bearcats to get first test of...

    Anderson County will get its first test of the young basketball season Friday night when the Bearcats take on Shelby County in the second game of a doubleheader at Shelbyville.

    The Anderson and Shelby girls will play the first game at 6 p.m.

    While the Anderson girls will be heavily favored, the boys' game will give some insight into both teams and where they stand in the 30th District and the Eighth Region.


    If it is true that one of the marks of a good team is beating another good team when playing poorly, then the Anderson County girls have the potential to make the current basketball season an exceptional one.

    The Lady Bearcats shot less than 30 percent, committed 18 turnovers, had numerous mental mistakes and still knocked 12th Region favorite Lincoln County from the ranks of the unbeaten last Friday night.
