  • Mat Cats tune up for regional...

    BARDSTOWN – Anderson County might not have the quantity but the Bearcat wrestling team has plenty of quality. That has been the mantra of the Mat Cats and first-year coach Hunter Lilly all season long.

    Never was it more apparent than in a quad meet held last Wednesday at Thomas Nelson High School.

  • Swim Cats ready for regional

    The Anderson County High School swim team concluded the regular season in the Shelby County Winter Classic, held Jan. 28 at the Shelby County Family Activity Center.

    Junior Reece Arredondo led a short-handed Anderson team, which was missing five key swimmers. The boys scored 127 points, good enough for 10th place in the 20-team event.

  • Drury fourth in state tourney

    The Anderson County Middle School wrestling team placed 18th out of 44 teams in the annual State Middle School Wrestling Tournament, held Saturday at Broadbent Arena in Louisville.

    Eighth-grader Zane Drury led Anderson with a fourth-place finish. Drury, who was ranked No. 1 in the state at 130 pounds, fell in the semi-final round when Stephen Little, of Union County, scored a pin. Drury won the consolation semifinal but was pinned again in the third-place match, falling to Joel Hatchett of River City.

  • Bearcats sign with Cumberlands
  • Grappling champs
  • Tourney champs
  • Lady Cat Senior Night Friday

    The Anderson County High School girls’ basketball team will be holding Senior Night on Friday, Feb. 10 when the Lady Bearcats host Woodford County. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. with Senior Night activities set at the conclusion of the junior varsity game, approximately 7:05 p.m.

  • Bearcats to play on road

    The Anderson County High School boys’ basketball team will go north twice this week as the Bearcats prepare for the 30th District Tournament in two weeks. Anderson heads to Owen County and Simon Kenton on successive nights.

    Thursday, the Bearcats travel to Owen County, which has struggled since losing last year’s Mr. Basketball, Carson Williams, to graduation. The Rebels, who have been one of the region’s better programs over the last 10 years, stood at 6-17 after the weekend and are only 1-10 since Jan. 1.

  • Frustration apparent as chances...

    As they filed out of the Anderson County locker room Friday night, the Bearcats’ faces spoke what they had just experienced.

    There were stunned looks after Anderson saw a 6-point lead evaporate in the final two minutes against 30th District foe Collins.

    It looked like there might have been a tear or two being shed. If a kid is a competitor, that’s good. If you want to win, losing hurts dearly.

    “It should hurt,” Anderson basketball coach Glen Drury said. “That shows you care about it.”

  • Titans make plays, overtake...

    An analysis of Collins’ win over Anderson County last Friday would be simple.

    The Titans made the plays down the stretch. The Bearcats did not.

    Collins overcame a six-point deficit in the final two minutes to notch a 62-59 win over the host Bearcats and sewed up the top seed in the 30th District Tournament. Anderson must now wait for the Shelby County at Spencer County game on Feb. 7 to learn its seeding fate.
