  • ‘We grew up a bit as a team’

    There was little question Anderson County was at a crossroads last Thursday night.

    The Lady Bearcats had just dropped a 49-38 decision to Louisville Manual after leading most of the game. The Crimsons had used a similar formula as Oldham County had in upsetting the Lady Bearcats nine days earlier: Get physical with Anderson, push the Lady Bearcats around a bit and eventually things will go your way. It looked like Anderson didn’t like that style of play.


    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Anderson County didn’t bring home the biggest crown, but did earn a bit of royalty last week, winning three times in four starts in the prestigious Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament at Bullitt East High School.

    The team was announced Friday.

    Collins ran for 1,474 yards and caught passes for 390 yards as the Bearcats went 10-1 on the year. Collins scored 170 points for the Bearcats.

    The Bearcats play the host school in the final first round game Thursday at 8:15 p.m.
