  • Anderson wrestlers capture pair of first state titles

    LEXINGTON -- Before last Saturday’s inaugural Kentucky Girls Wrestling State Championships, there had never been a girl state champion in the history of Kentucky high school wrestling.

    Then at about 5:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, Anderson County’s Trinity Gottler pinned her opponent less than a minute into the 160-pound final match, becoming the first high school girl wrestler in Kentucky to win an individual state championship.

  • Patience pays off for Bearcats

    VERSAILLES -- Between Jan. 26-31, the Anderson County boys’ basketball team had two of its games canceled due to weather, which at the time was unfortunate since the players wanted to play.

    Fast-forward to Feb. 2 and that extra time off from games proved to be a benefit for the Bearcats, as it helped them pull off a big 54-47 win at Woodford County.

  • Super Bowl wasn’t all that bad

    After the conclusion of Super Bowl LIII, which the Patriots won over the Rams 13-3, there were two things that I primarily saw on my Twitter feed.

    Tom Brady is the greatest of all time and the game was super boring.

    I’ll get to the latter point in a second, but yes, I do believe Brady is the G.O.A.T. He has more Super Bowl rings than he does fingers on either one of his hands, and he’s got plenty of NFL records that prove he’s more than just someone who plays well in the playoffs.

    The last time the Anderson County girls’ basketball team played a string of home games, the Lady Bearcats were only nine games into their season and Christmas was still 10 days away.

    Since then Anderson has played 15 of its last 16 games on the road, going 12-4 during that span. With only five games left of the regular season, the Lady Bearcats will now return to a venue that’s familiar and unfamiliar at the same time, that is their home gymnasium.

  • 6th grade Mustangs win conference championship

    NICHOLASVILLE -- Better late than never, as they always say.

    That saying applied to the Anderson County Middle School 6th grade boys basketball team on Monday night, as they showed up 10 minutes before tipoff only to crush Lincoln County 42-21 to win the Salt River Conference Championship.

    “Our A.D. forgot to call the bus garage to get a bus so we showed up right at 5:30, had 10 minutes to warm-up,” Mustang head coach Wayne Wilder said after the game.
