  • Lady Bearcats beat Shelby to...

    TAYLORSVILLE – The Anderson County girls’ basketball team cruised past Shelby County in the 30th District Tournament semifinals on Wednesday night, beating the Lady Rockets 73-29.

    The win advances Anderson to its 14th straight district title game, where they’ll meet the winner of the other semifinal matchup between Spencer County and Collins. The win was an all-around effort from the Lady Bearcats, as 10 players scored everyone on the roster got some minutes.

  • Lady Bearcats set for postseason...

    After posting a 24-6 record in the regular season, the part of the season that the Anderson County girls’ basketball team has been looking forward to all year long is finally here: the postseason.

    The Lady Bearcats will begin their run through the postseason on Feb. 20 with a 30th District Tournament semifinal matchup against Shelby County. The game will kickoff what the Lady Bearcats hope to be a long postseason run, ending with a trip to Rupp Arena.

  • Bearcats' season ends in...

    TAYLORSVILLE – A second half comeback wasn’t enough to get the Anderson County boys’ basketball team past Spencer County on Tuesday night in the 30th District Tournament semifinals, as the Bearcats lost to the Bears 45-34.

    The loss ends Anderson’s season, with the Bearcats finishing with a 14-13 record after losing the final three games. This was Bryan Hyatt’s first season as head coach of the Bearcats, and while he’s disappointed by the result, he’s proud of the way his team fought until the final buzzer.

  • Arredondo to swim at state...

    For the second consecutive season, the Anderson County swim & dive team will have a swimmer compete in the KHSAA State Swimming Championships, which is this upcoming weekend in Louisville.

    Junior swimmer Riley Arredondo qualified for state in the 100-yard butterfly and the 500-yard free at the 6th Region Championships two weeks ago. This will be Arredondo’s second trip to the state meet, as he qualified last year with his brother, Reece Arredondo, as a sophomore.

  • Mat Cats struggle at state

    LEXINGTON -- This past weekend, the Anderson County wrestling team competed at the KHSAA Wrestling State Championships, but did not perform the way they had hoped.

    Five Mat Cat wrestlers competed in different weight brackets, but only one advanced far enough to compete on the second day of the championships.

  • PJ Washington’s case for SEC P.O...

    Ever since Tennessee surpassed expectations last season and became a competitive basketball team, these Tennessee vs. Kentucky battles have been some of the more entertaining games.

    Part of that is because of the rivalry going on between PJ Washington and Grant Williams in the paint.

    The two players are virtual basketball player clones. They’re both 6’7” small forwards with a very versatile skillset, featuring an arsenal of post moves and a touch of shooting form behind the three-point line.

  • Bearcats drop second straight to...

    After returning home from a six-game road trip for Senior Night, the Anderson County boys’ basketball hosted Franklin County in hopes of ending their regular season with a win, but instead dropped their second straight game with a 47-35 loss to the Flyers.

    The Bearcats led by three at halftime, but were outscored 29-14 in the second half to end their regular season with a 14-12 record.

  • ‘Secret to basketball’ unlocks...

    If you look in the record book for the Anderson County girls’ basketball team, you’ll find Jaclynn Ruble’s name all over it.

    The senior guard is creeping up on the top five on the Lady Bearcat career-scoring list. Ruble is in the top 10 on Anderson County’s all-time steals, made free throws and made three-pointers list, and was just named a candidate for Kentucky’s Miss Basketball, becoming only the fourth Lady Bearcat to do so.

  • Mental improvements helping...

    For anyone who has watched Brennon Maxberry play basketball, they’ve seen the senior guard sprint up and down the court at full speed many times, either looking for some space in the paint for a layup or guarding the opposing team’s best player.

    Maxberry’s high-speed style of play can result in mistakes being made. With the game going as fast as it does for Maxberry, there are instances where he’s forced to make a decision in a matter of seconds, which sometimes isn’t enough time to make the right decision.

  • Bearcats continue clash with...

    For the fourth consecutive year, the road to the 8th Regional Tournament goes through Spencer County for the Bearcat basketball team.

    After earning the No. 3 seed for the 30th District Tournament, Anderson County will matchup against the Bears of Spencer County for their district tournament semifinal game. This will be the ninth time in the 14 years since Spencer joined the 30th District that the two teams have matched up against each other in the semifinals.
