  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats race past Greyhounds

    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 Lady Bearcats share one final home win

    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 Franklin, roll into post-season

    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.

    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.

    50 YEARS AGO
    Thursday, Feb. 20, 1964
    Anderson County School Superintendent Andrew Bird caught a 4 1/4 pound white bass in April 1963 at Herrington Lake. Believing it to be noteworth, he sent the information to a contest in a sport’s magazine.
    Sure enough in the latest edition of Field and Stream his name appears as wining in the Fresh Water Open Division No. 2, with an 8-pound test line and with the use of a live minnow as bait. The contest was open to fishermen in the United States and Canada.
