  • Lady Bearcats roll on to...

    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.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Bearcats...

    The trap had been set for Anderson County last Tuesday.

    It was Senior Night for Bearcat basketball, a time when emotions can run rampant and get the best of any team.

    A starting guard, sophomore Austin Cummins, who had led Anderson in scoring for much of the month of February, used crutches to hobble to the end of the Bearcat bench and stayed there the whole game after a possible knee injury.


    Anderson County High School junior Makenzie Cann has been named Eighth Region Player of the Year in voting by the region's coaches.

    Cann barely edged her teammate, Eriel McKee, another junior, who was second in the voting.

    A 6-foot-1 guard, Cann is averaging 15.5 points, 4.5 assists and 4 rebounds a game for the second-ranked Lady Bearcats. She has scholarship offers from several Division I schools.

    Cann is the first girls' player from Anderson County to be named the region's top player in a season.
