  • Bearcat hoops completes summer...

    Basketball season is nearly five months – and a lot of cooler temperatures – away, but that does not mean hoopsters can lounge and do nothing.

    The Anderson County High School boys' basketball team completed its summer schedule last week, offering some mixed results but hope for a big year in 2014-15. The Bearcats were only 3-3 in full games, which were played at Asbury University's team camp, but Bearcat assistant coach Bryan Hyatt says that is misleading.

  • Davis-Smith duo should make...

    Notes to be blown up by  a firecracker …

    Other than watching some local, ahem, experts discuss the NBA draft on Twitter last week, the most interesting tidbit came when Russ Smith was taken by the Philadelphia 76ers, then shipped to the New Orleans Pelicans quicker then John Hancock could have signed the Declaration of Independence.

    For much of his college career, I doubted Smith.

    He was too small. Too streaky.

    He always answered the critics with too many ways to win. The guy can play.

  • Allen Dennis Memorial scramble...

    The annual Allen Dennis Memorial Golf Scramble will be held on Saturday, Aug. 9 at Tanglewood Golf Course in Taylorsville. Benefits from the scramble will go to the Allen Dennis Scholarship Fund, named for a young man who drowned in 2001.

    The fee for the scramble is $50 per player or $200 per team. The scramble will feature a shotgun start at 8 a.m.

  • Lacrosse team celebrates season...

    The Anderson County boys' lacrosse team finished the 2014 season with a 5-12 record, but coach Chris Harrod termed the year a success.

    “Every category in the stats book showed a major increase in numbers,” Harrod said.

    Senior Dillon Harrod led the state with 73 points (52 goals and 21 assists), at least 10 points better than anyone else in Kentucky.

    Harrod was selected as a first team all-state midfielder and second team all-state as an attacker.

    Anderson County track athletes Alorra Sims and Carley Duncan have moved into national qualifying rounds for the AAU Junior Olympics. The qualifying round is scheduled to be held this weekend in Murfreesboro, Tennessee with the national finals set for the end of July in Des Moines, Iowa.

    Both had outstanding days at the AAU state meet, held in Elizabethtown on June 21.

    Today, June 25, is that day many high school coaches have had circled on their calendars since, oh, about this time last year.

    Vacation time!

    OK, it's the start of the dead period, mandated by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.

    From now until July 9, high school athletic programs in the state are shut down, for all practical purposes. Athletes are off limits to coaches. Facilities are off limits to the players, for the most part, and it is just a good time for everyone to take the break for which the rule was enacted.
