  • Scenes from Anderson County...
  • WRESTLING: Mat Cats fall short...

    LEXINGTON – The end was bittersweet for the Anderson County High School wrestlers who made it to the state tournament last week.

    Just getting to the extravaganza, held at Alltech Arena on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park is quite an accomplishment for the individuals. Four Bearcat grapplers made it to the state but the results were not nearly what they had hoped for.

    Only two Bearcats scored with wins and no Anderson wrestler advanced to the medal round.

  • Follow the Bearcats and Lady...

    March does not officially begin until Saturday, but the Madness began Tuesday night in the 30th District Tournament at Shelby County High School.

    The Anderson County boys' basketball team was an underdog to Collins, but with strong play over the final weeks of the season, had given the indication the Bearcats might have been able to pull an upset. The winner of Tuesday's game advances to the 30th District championship game, set for Friday night, Feb. 28, at 7:45 p.m. at Shelby County.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats race past...

    Anderson County recorded its fifth consecutive victory, winning at Paris, 60-47, last Tuesday.

    Anderson dominated from the outset and the game was not as close as the final score might indicate. Anderson was 31-15 at the half and extended that lead to 52-27 early in the fourth quarter.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Senior...

    To the outsider, it might have seemed like a strange move, but for Anderson County's girls' basketball team, it might have been the most fitting salute any coach could arrange for his team.

    With the Lady Bearcats' 63-54 win over highly-regarded Lafayette clearly in hand and just 13.2 seconds remaining, Kays inserted senior Jessica Rice into the lineup for sophomore Kaci Currens.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats rock...

    Anderson County will know very soon whether or not it will continue to play boys' basketball for at least another week.

    The Bearcats are considered underdogs in their first-round game of the 30th District Tournament against Collins, a slight favorite to take the Eighth Region crown, scheduled for Tuesday night.

    While the Bearcats' tournament life is certainly in question, there were no inquiries about the Bearcats' playing their best basketball of the 2013-14 season at the right time.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    CRESTWOOD – There are times when a basketball team just needs one of those cruise control games.

    That's not to say Anderson County's girls were just going through the motions during their 69-40 win at South Oldham last Tuesday. Far from it.

    When the Lady Bearcats needed to put the hammer down, they did, outscoring South 16-2 over the first five minutes of the third quarter to clinch their 21st win in 25 games this season.

  • COLUMN: Their games, their way

    Let's face it. We live in basketball country.

    If you fail to or, probably more accurately, refuse to acknowledge that, well, there just isn't much I can do.
