    Thank you, Lady Bearcats. We needed what you gave us the last few weeks.

  • Simon Kenton ends Lady Bearcat...

    INDEPENDENCE, Ky. -- Even before the 2017-18 basketball season began, the Anderson County girls’ basketball team knew what would be the most daunting mountain to climb in its quest for Sweet 16 glory.

    Simon Kenton would be that one task that would require the combination of near-perfect play and some good fortune necessary to navigate the road known as March Madness.

    Simon Kenton showed why Saturday night, using a 15-1 run to close out the first quarter, then holding off a gallant Anderson comeback for an 80-68 win in the Eighth Region tournament final.

  • Lady Cats have more than 9 lives...

    INDEPENDENCE, Ky. -- Remember that old saying that a cat has nine lives?

    Anderson County’s girls’ basketball team might laugh at that after Friday’s dramatic 58-54 win over Walton-Verona in the Eighth Region Tournament semifinals.

    Anderson had at least a dozen lives in rallying from a 12-point deficit at Simon Kenton High School.

    Anderson, now 27-5 on the year, moves on to play tournament host Simon Kenton (19-10) in the regional championship game Saturday at 6 p.m. Walton-Verona finished its season at 24-10.

  • Lady Bearcats tame Dragons in...

    INDEPENDENCE, Ky. -- Anderson County left no doubt in the opening round of the Eighth Region Tournament last Tuesday night at Simon Kenton.

    The Lady Bearcats never trailed on their way to an 80-56 win over 29th District runner-up South Oldham at Simon Kenton High School.

    Taylor Harley coaxed a 3-pointer to fall after hesitating on the rim and Jacie Chesser delivered a putback in the first minute of the contest and the Lady Bearcats were on their way.
