  • Lady Bearcats face Spencer in...

    After tangling with two of the regal names in Kentucky high school basketball, the Anderson County girls travel to Spencer County on Saturdayafternoon for the biggest game of the young season.

    While wins over Ballard and Lafayette might look better to the casual fan statewide, Saturday afternoon’s matchup in Taylorsville will go a long way toward determining the seedings for the 30th District Tournament in late February.

  • Young kids answer questions...

    It took one game for Anderson County to answer the question if its young players would be able to compete with older girls’ basketball teams.

    One only had to see the huge smile on Lady Bearcat coach Tony Kays’ face and the another-day-at-the-office demeanor for his team to know the answer.

    Eighth-grader Makenzie Cann swished a 3-pointer that sent the game into overtime then buried four free throws in the final 1:17 of the second overtime to send Anderson to a 52-48 win over visiting Lafayette in the season-opener for both teams.

  • Bearcats have busy weekend

    Anderson County’s boys’ basketball team should have a strong test Friday night when the Bearcats travel to longtime rival Mercer County.

    While Anderson would be considered a solid favorite over the Titans, this is one of those series where little matters before the game is played.


    LEXINGTON – It was supposed to be a Black-out with t-shirts, jerseys and all the trappings.
