  • Lady Bearcats advance to region

    EMINENCE – Everything had come down to one game. After thousands of serves and volleys, only 25 points stood between the end of the volleyball season and moving on.

    Anderson County answered Monday night.

  • Anderson volleyball advances to...

    EMINENCE – The Anderson County High School volleyball team pulled away in the third and deciding game to defeat Henry County in the District 28 Tournament, being held at Eminence High School.

    After a pair of nip-and-tuck games that saw tie scores and lead changes as the norm, the Lady Bearcats never trailed in the third to post a 26-24, 20-25, 25-15 win. The Lady Bearcats got 13 kills from Hannah Smith and got huge games from defenders Cindy and Sandy Zhang, who sparked the third-game rally with deft passing.

  • SPORTS BUZZ for Oct. 10: Friday...

    I don't know when I have seen a more dominating performance by an Anderson County football team over a good opponent than I did Friday night at Bullitt Central.

    This was one that was supposed to be close. It was touted by some writers as one of the top games in the state. Two unbeaten 5A teams, both with aspirations of making noise in the post-season.

  • Point taken!

    There aren’t many things in the life of a teenager that can top that day when he gets his driver’s license, but Neal Wells isn’t your ordinary 16-year-old.

    He’s a football player. A good one.

    And just two days after being able to take a spin without someone sitting to his right, Wells came up even bigger to help Anderson County outlast visiting Jeffersontown for a major district win Friday night.

    And just like his driving now, Wells made the biggest play of the night on his own.

  • Conference champs!

    The Anderson County Middle School football team rolled past Shelby West 29-14 last Tuesday to with the regular season conference championship and remain unbeaten on the year.

    The Mustangs spotted Shelby West an early 6-0 lead, then roared back for the win.

    With time running out in the first quarter, Anderson quarterback Zachary Carmichael connected with Ross Cox on a 25 yard touchdown pass, but the conversion failed.

  • 'We can make it better'

    There is a widespread perception that the Kentucky-Indiana high school basketball all-star series is on life support, but Anderson County coach Glen Drury believes the series could become a hoops version of Lazarus.

    Last week, he took an official step toward pumping life into the series, at least on the south side of the Ohio River, by accepting an offer to coach the Kentucky boys’ team in 2011.

  • COLUMN: Agony of defeat

    Nearly 48 hours after it was all over, Taylor Gillis’ heart was still broken.

    And hurting. In a way few could really, totally understand.

    A talented senior at Anderson County High School, Taylor knew the expectations. She’d be playing the regional golf tournament on her home course at Wild Turkey Trace, would advance to the state tournament at Bowling Green this weekend, hopefully do well, and leave her mark as one of the best ever to tee it up for Anderson County.

    “Reality hit me in the face,” she said Thursday.
