  • Quest for district top seed...

  • Lady Bearcat JV defeats Lincoln

    By Allyson Moore

    In an intense game that was not determined until the last minute, the Anderson County Lady Bearcats junior varsity basketball team won a hard fought battle against visiting Lincoln County, 30-27, last Tuesday.


    SHELBYVILLE – When the time of reckoning came for Anderson County, the Bearcats responded with the look of a champion.

    Down 18-4 at long-time rival Shelby County less than five minutes into Friday night’s 30th District showdown, the Bearcats found the resolve to recover, then go on to a 64-49 win that might be a defining moment for an Anderson team that had been expected to be a factor in the Eighth Region title race but had seen a few games slip away in December.
