  • Anderson girls go for bragging...

    While the post-season ramifications of the Anderson County - Shelby County girls' basketball game might pale in comparison to those riding on the boys' game Friday night, there is still plenty at stake when the teams tip it off at approximately 7:45 for the second game of a double-header at Shelby County High School.

  • Bearcats open play in King of...

    Anderson County's Christmas holiday will be short as the Bearcats take on Louisville's DuPont Manual in Dec. 26's first game of the King of the Bluegrass tournament at Fairdale High School.

    The tournament is one of the most prestigious in the area as it pits some of the best teams in Kentucky with four from around the nation.

    Anderson and Manual have played once before, in the 1971 Louisville Invitational Tournament. In that one, the Bearcats, who were eventually the state tournament runner-up, prevailed in overtime, 66-63.

  • Bearcats have fun, roar past...

    The games are supposed to be fun.

    They are when the cheerleaders cheer, the band plays and the scoreboard is working.

    Everything worked as it was supposed to, at least for three quarters, last Tuesday when Anderson County routed visiting Owen County in boys' basketball action.

    The 60-43 final score does not begin to tell just how thoroughly the Bearcats controlled things.

    It all came six nights after the Bearcats nearly blew a 24-point lead before hanging on for a win at Western Hills.

  • Lady Bearcats fall in California...

    Anderson County's Lady Bearcats dropped a 45-40 decision to Eastlake High School, of Shammamish, Wash., in the championship game of the Orange County Clash tournament on Dec. 20. The tournament was held at Orange Lutheran High School in Anaheim, Cal.

    Eastlake jumped to a 12-0 lead, then held off a furious Anderson rally to win the championship. Anderson tied the game twice in the second half but never could take the lead.

    Lindsay Fultz, who was named to the all-tournament team, led Anderson with 19 points.

  • Bearcats take showdown of...

    Anderson County pulled away in the final minutes to post a 68-59 win over visiting Gallatin County in high school basketball action Saturday night. The Bearcats scored the first 5 points of the fourth quarter to put some distance between their Eighth Region rival. Gallatin was never closer than 6 after that.

  • Lady Bearcats defeat Arizona...

    The Anderson County Lady Bearcats recorded a 59-45 win over Ironwood Ridge of Tucson, Ariz. Friday to advance to the championship game of the Orange County Clash tournament in Anaheim Cal. Anderson will play Eastlake, Washington in Saturday's final.

    Lindsay Fultz led Anderson with 23 points while Courtney Milam added 14. Christy Gemmell had a tremendous game, scoring 10 points, coming up with 6 steals, 4 assists and 4 rebounds.

  • Lady Bearcats win Orange County...

    The Anderson County Lady Bearcats defeated Bishop Manogue of Reno, Nev., 59-55 in their first game in the Orange County Clash basketball tournament Thursday. The tournament is being held in Anaheim, Cal.

    The Lady Bearcats fell behind by as many as 9 points in the third quarter but eventually wore down Bishop Manogue as the Lady Bearcat defense forced 19 turnovers. Anderson was also proficient at the free throw line, hitting 17 of 22 from the charity stripe.

    Courtney Milam led Anderson with 29 points while Lindsay Fultz added 14.

  • Drury says Western Hills, Owen...

    Anderson County will try to get back on track tonight, Wednesday, Dec. 12, when the Bearcats travel to Western Hills. The Bearcats have been idle since losing at Bardstown nine days ago.

    Anderson will also host a dangerous Owen County team Tuesday, Dec. 18, in what should be a good Eighth Region test.

    Western Hills, 3-1, has close wins over Mercer County and South Oldham as well as a 28-point victory over Washington County, but the Wolverines' best outing might have been an overtime loss to Shelby County Friday night. Western Hills dropped a 64-55 decision to Shelby.

  • Mat Cats win at Bourbon,...

    The Anderson County Bearcat wrestling team recorded a nice win at Bourbon County last Wednesday but were overmatched in four of five matches Saturday at the Nelson County duals.

    Wednesday, Anderson defeated Bourbon County 57-24 despite not having any wrestlers in the 103- and 130-pound weight classes. Not having a competitor in a weight class hurts in team scoring as the match is recorded as a fall, or six points for the opponent.

    Anderson's Ben Joseph (119 pounds), Tom McNaughton (171) Marcus White (189) and Zach Cotton (285) all recorded pins.

  • Kentucky Christian's...

    GRAYSON - Seven. Seven national championship banners hang from the rafters of Lexington's Rupp Arena, but a fan with just an elementary knowledge of Kentucky - the state, not the basketball team looking for someone, anyone, that can score - history knows there's another in-state school with more.

    Down in Owensboro, they like to remind you that Kentucky Wesleyan has eight national championship banners. That's mighty good but still two shy of Kentucky's best.
