  • Small gestures a big part of Drury’s holding court

    If there was ever any question about what was behind Glen Drury’s 535 wins as a high school basketball coach, it was answered last Thursday at, of all places, a tennis court.

    Drury had sent me a text message Wednesday night saying “I will be turning in my official letter later this week or the first part of next week.”

  • Drury leaves a lifetime legacy

    Glen Drury can only laugh about working a basketball camp at Anderson County High School in the summer of 1982.

    Fresh off spending a year as an assistant coach at Berea College, where he had played the previous four seasons, Drury was playing a pickup game that included the Anderson head coach at the time, Kermit Koenig.

    “We got in a little verbal spat,” Drury laughs. “We were pushing a little and got in a little spat. We were both such competitors.”

  • Daily Differences for Cats

    Each day brought something different for the Anderson County High School baseball team last week.

    The Bearcats put together one of their most impressive offensive outings of the season with a 15-6 win at Louisville Southern Thursday.

    Sam Harrod led the Bearcat attack, going perfect in five plate appearances. Harrod ripped four singles and a double, scoring three runs and driving in three. “He had a special day at the plate,” Anderson coach L.W. Barnes said.

  • Bearcats end spring practice with high hopes for 2018

    Anderson County ended its annual spring football game Wednesday with the Red team defeating the White team, 14-0, in a controlled scrimmage on Bob Ware Field.

    Kynan Russell scored both touchdowns for the red team. “He has done a nice job of rushing and catching the football,” Anderson coach Mark Peach said.

    Sophomore-to-be Jagger Gillis was solid, according to Peach. “It is always nice to have your starting quarterback returning and he continues to work hard and get better every day,” Peach said.

  • Power Surge

    Anderson County used a power surge to rally for a 9-4 win over visiting Shelby County in 30th District softball action last Thursday.

    Trailing 4-2 going into the bottom of the sixth inning, the Lady Bearcats exploded for seven runs, hitting three home runs in the process, to claim the win, their third straight. It also extended a winning streak over Shelby that dates to 2011. The Lady Rockets have never beaten Anderson since Shelby was split to form Collins High School, but had an opportunity Tuesday after press time.

  • Other coach in final game a friend, respected opponent

    The word was out that Anderson County’s final game of the 2017-18 basketball season would probably be Glen Drury’s last coaching the Bearcats.

  • Kentucky coaches talk about Glen Drury

    “The thing I will remember about coach Drury the most comes from the perspective of a young coach trying to build a program from the bottom and a district coach as well. He was always very supportive of what we have done and was always in our corner. That’s hard to say about an opposing coach.”

  • Quite an impression
  • Net Cats in action
  • From Eagles to Bearcats, always a players’ coach

    Greg Boblitt still remembers, and uses, some of the things Glen Drury taught him as when he was playing basketball for old Western High School.

    “Man, that was a long time ago,” says Boblitt, now a deputy in the Anderson County Sheriff’s office. “Just be responsible for what you do. Look people in the eye when you talk to them. Work hard and never quit.”
