    Tyler Hyatt came off the bench to spark the Bearcats with 18 points, 11 in the first quarter after Woodford had smoked the nets on the way to a 13-5 lead. Woodford senior Dominique Johnson scored 10 of his team's first 13 points.

    Anderson coach Glen Drury made a defensive switch in the first quarter that held Woodford to 14 points over the next 20 minutes.

  • Clark 'just better than us...

    George Rogers Clark took control early, then turned back an Anderson County rally to post a 57-42 win in girls' high school basketball action on Thursday night.

    The visiting Cardinals led all but 14 seconds in picking up their fourth straight win and fifth in their last six games. Junior Preshia Rogers led all scorers with 23 points, dominating the game on both ends of the floor. Rogers nailed four 3-point shots and harassed the Anderson guards into crucial turnovers in the open court.

  • Cox tips Bearcats past Spencer

    Grant Cox has never been known for getting points on the basketball court.

    Until last Tuesday that is.

    One of the state’s leading scorers on the football field last fall, Cox tipped in the biggest two points of his basketball career as time expired, giving Anderson County a 61-59 win at 30th District rival Spencer County last Tuesday.

    Cox, who had just four points on the evening, put back Allen Warford’s miss to give the Bearcats their sixth straight win this season and extend their mastery of Spencer to a like number.

  • Lady Bearcats hold off South...

    The Anderson County girls' basketball team took control early, then used deadly free throwing to hold off visiting South Oldham, 45-40, on Friday night.

    “It was one of our best defensive efforts of the year,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said. “(Caroline) McDowell and (Kara) Yeaste did a good job containing (South Oldham's Jasmine) Whitfield and (Jordann) McGuffin, especially in the first half.”

    The game featured the Eighth Region's top-ranked team, Anderson, taking on the pre-season favorite, South Oldham.

  • Lady Cats right ship, defeat...

    It took Anderson County 16 minutes to get going but when the Lady Bearcats did, Bardstown had nothing to stop them Tuesday night.

    Despite trailing 12-0 five minutes into the game, the host Lady Bearcats used a strong second half to post a 41-33 win over visiting Bardstown. Trailing 22-13 at the half, Anderson outpointed the Tigers 28-11 in the final 16 minutes to improve to 14-5 on the season. Bardstown fell to 12-8.

  • Not an easy decision, but Gillis...

    The decision on where to continue her education and golf career was not an easy one, but Anderson County High School senior Taylor Gillis has chosen the University of the Cumberlands, located in Williamsburg, Ky.

    Gillis signed an NAIA national letter of intent in a ceremony Saturday at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course, her home course.

  • Snowy Weather a good time to...

    Here we go with another year full of hunting, trapping, fishing and outdoor opportunities.  The snow made for some great outdoor fun on the Lilly place while the kids were out of school. I always enjoy getting out after a fresh snow and doing a little tracking just to see where varmints come and go during such a blanket of white powder.

  • Russell “knew EKU was...

    Jacob Russell's dream of playing in the NFL is as alive as ever.

    Tabbed by many as being the state's top quarterback prospect, the Anderson County High School senior's name was often mentioned with some major college football programs last fall, but last week, Russell gave a verbal commitment to Eastern Kentucky University, a Football Championship Subdivision school. The level of play is commonly referred to as Division I-AA.
