  • 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.

  • BASKETBALL: Harvey's...

    Anderson County overcame deep foul trouble, then pulled away in the second half for a 64-42 win over visiting Danville in boys' basketball action last Monday night.

    Darius Harvey came off the bench to score a career-best 23 points and pull down 10 rebounds. Harvey was perfect on 10 field goal attempts.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    LEXINGTON – 'Twas the Saturday before Christmas and all over the floor, Anderson County's Lady Bearcats made another opponent quite sore.

    This time, it was a 69-44 pounding of 12th Region favorite Southwestern, a team that like Anderson, came into the second-round game of the Republic Bank Classic with a 7-1 record.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    It was simply an Anderson County avalanche.

    The Lady Bearcats exploded with 22-0 run that spanned the first and second quarters that powered them to a 72-49 30th District win over visiting Shelby last Wednesday night.

    By the time Shelby crawled from under the onslaught, any hope of a rescue was long gone.

    “Our defense was good and we were able to turn them over some with our press,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said, “and we were taking good shots.”

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    Even without the school’s all-time leading scorer in the lineup, Anderson County had more than enough firepower at Oldham County last Tuesday.

    The Lady Bearcats pulled away from pesky Oldham to post a 63-53 win over their Eighth Region foe.

    Anderson was without leading scorer Eriel McKee, who was ailing. Junior Corrin Robinson started in McKee’s absence.

  • Merry Christmas from some...

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Red River...

    Anderson County boys’ basketball coach Glen Drury has a very succinct assessment of the Bearcats’ appearance in the Red River Classic at Powell County High School.

    “This is not a cupcake tournament,” he says.

    The three-day tournament tips off Thursday, Dec. 26 when Tates Creek takes on Wolfe County, a team that has already beaten Anderson this year, at 2 p.m.

    The Bearcats get tournament play underway when they take on Estill County in the next game at 3:30 p.m. Each team is guaranteed three games.

  • FOOTBALL: Cox named to Class of...

    Anderson County High School football player Ross Cox has been named to the Class of the Commonwealth team, as selected by the Lexington Herald-Leader.

    A 6-foot-3, 215-pound senior, Cox's selection to the 22-man team was announced in Sunday's editions of the paper.

  • OUTDOORS: Time flies! Enjoy the...

    I want to start out this month’s column by dedicating this writing in memory of Kenny Detherage. Kenny was an avid outdoorsman and the Lilly/Detherage clans have always been like a family. I’ll never forget the many dove hunts the two families shared together over the years, the goat cookings and the many other good times. As outdoorsmen, I feel I can speak for us all; we have lost a great one. Kenny lost his battle with cancer on November 30, 2013. Thoughts and prayers are with this wonderful family.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Anderson...

    Anderson County has played one of the top teams in Indiana girls' basketball, a team with three Division I prospects. The Lady Bearcats, ranked No. 1 in Kentucky, have handled a Top 5 team and a Top 25 team. They have also beaten a two-time defending regional champion.

    But the most important game of the season, so far, graces the schedule tonight, Wednesday, Dec. 18. Shelby County comes to town.
