  • Lady Bearcats learn lessons at Lafayette

    LEXINGTON – Anderson County learned about itself last Tuesday.

  • Bearcats rally late for win at Casey

    Anderson County's boys' basketball team seems intent on proving the doubters wrong.
    That is what was apparent last Tuesday when the Bearcats rallied from seven points down in the fourth quarter to take a hard-fought 60-57 win at Casey County in the season opener for both teams.
    Erik Newton, Anderson's only returning starter from 2010, scored Anderson's first 10 points, then sank a pair of free throws with 10 seconds to go to provide the winning margin for the Bearcats.

  • Lady Cats beat top-ranked Marion in scrimmage

    The Anderson County girls' basketball team did not expect to sneak up on anyone this season. The Lady Bearcats assured that Saturday when they defeated top-ranked Marion County, 47-41 in the Kentucky Basketball Academy pre-season showcase at Rupp Arena in Lexington.

    Mackenzie Cann led Anderson with 13 points but it was a total team effort, according to Anderson coach Tony Kaya.
    "The kids played hard, but necessarily well," Kays said.

  • Peach, Bearcats looking ahead to 2011

    Mark Peach was wearing a Notre Dame t-shirt last Tuesday.
    The irony, as he sat down to talk about the just completed football season and what lies ahead for his Anderson County Bearcats, could not be overlooked or overstated.

    Suffice it to say that, based on what transpired over the last half of the regular season and in the playoffs, expectations are high for 2011.
    Maybe not as out of this world as they perennially are in South Bend, but expectations are such that the time for basking in the Bearcats’ longest post-season run in school history is now in the past.

    “The thing I was most proud of was how they hit us in the mouth and made a run at us, but our kids responded,” said Anderson coach Tony Kays.
