  • Third quarter blitz fuels Lady...

    SHELBYVILLE – The good teams make the plays when they need to.

    At least that is what the old adage, or a reasonable facsimile thereof, says. If it is true, then the Anderson County girls make up a good team.

    After a night of sputtering like a car needing a tuneup, the Lady Bearcats blitzed host Collins for a 13-1 scoring spurt to go up 52-32 at the end of the third quarter last Wednesday.

    Game. Set. Match.

  • Lady Cats collapse in fourth,...

    To say nothing went right for Anderson County in the fourth quarter of Friday's loss to Woodford County is akin to saying the temperatures dropped a bit over the weekend.

    The Lady Bearcats saw a 15-point lead disappear as they tasted defeat on their home court for the third time this year. Woodford closed things out with a 24-2 run to improve to 13-15.

    The Yellow Jackets avenged a 57-41 Anderson win in the Mingua Beef Jerky Classic at Bourbon County just after Christmas.

    It should have never happened, Anderson coach Clay Birdwhistell said.

  • Whiteside dominates glass for...

    Asbury avenged a 24-point loss to Midway by scoring an 82-58 win last Tuesday in Wilmore.

    Midway had whipped Asbury back on Jan. 6.

    Anderson County resident Kali Whiteside dominated the glass, pulling down 16 rebounds and blocking four shots. She also scored seven points and was credited with two assists as Asbury improved to 21-6.

    Asbury overcame a slow start to defeat IU-Southeast, 67-51, Saturday in New Albany, Ind.

  • Cummins filling it up when media...

    It would be understandable if Austin Cummins and his Anderson County teammates requested the local media be barred from covering the 30th District Tournament live next week.

    Cummins has been on a roll unlike anything Anderson County basketball has seen of late and wouldn't you know that yours truly, who has been at nearly every other big event in Anderson County sports over the last 30 years or so, has missed much of it.

  • HOOPS SUPREMACY UP FOR GRABS

    What most observers believe to be the most unpredictable 30th District Tournament in many years gets under way next week at Spencer County High School.

    Unlike the most recent years, there is no team waiting to be crowned district champion by acclamation, such as the Anderson County girls during their six-year domination of the district or like the Collins boys in 2012 and 2013.

  • Five ways to save money for...

    Although the price of a gallon of gas is lower than at any time in recent memory, not many folks have extra money to burn.

    This is especially true for non-essential things such as fishing reels, shotguns, hunting clothing or fishing waders. Adult commitments such as your mortgage must be paid before any money goes toward a new spinning reel. Obtaining quality hunting and fishing gear inexpensively is a useful skill for outdoors enthusiasts to learn.

    There is a saying in fishing that goes “the best time to go fishing is when you can.”

    With the frenetic pace and busy schedules of modern life, the saying is true more than ever. However, if you only have a few weekends each spring to fish, the experience yields more stress reduction, enjoyment and memories if the fish bite like crazy.

  • Legends’ national anthem tryouts...

    The Lexington Legends will determine at least one starting lineup in February – and that’s the lineup of singers and musicians who will sing or play the national anthem before each Legends home game in 2015.

  • Swimmers set personal marks but...

    Despite several personal bests in the Region 3 Swim Meet, the Anderson County High School swim team was unable to take that elusive next step.

    While several entries made it to the regional finals, no Anderson swimmer was able to advance to the state meet.

    The top two finishers from each region in each event advance to the state meet along with the 22 best at-large times from around the state.

    Thirty-four teams are aligned in Region 3, which held its meet last Friday and Saturday at Falling Springs Recreation Center in Versailles.

  • Five Mat Cats qualify for state...

    VERSAILLES -- Five Anderson County High School wrestlers qualified for the state tournament with strong performances in the Region 5 Tournament at Woodford County High School Saturday.

    The top four finishers in each weight class advance to the state tournament, which will be held Friday and Saturday in Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    Three other Mat Cats finished fifth and are alternates for the region.
