  • Other coach in final game a...

    The word was out that Anderson County’s final game of the 2017-18 basketball season would probably be Glen Drury’s last coaching the Bearcats.

  • Kentucky coaches talk about Glen...

    “The thing I will remember about coach Drury the most comes from the perspective of a young coach trying to build a program from the bottom and a district coach as well. He was always very supportive of what we have done and was always in our corner. That’s hard to say about an opposing coach.”

    -- Jason Burns, head basketball coach, Spencer County High School

  • Quite an impression
  • Net Cats in action
  • From Eagles to Bearcats, always...

    Greg Boblitt still remembers, and uses, some of the things Glen Drury taught him as when he was playing basketball for old Western High School.

    “Man, that was a long time ago,” says Boblitt, now a deputy in the Anderson County Sheriff’s office. “Just be responsible for what you do. Look people in the eye when you talk to them. Work hard and never quit.”

    SHELBYVILLE -- Just when it looked like Anderson County was turning the corner on the 2018 baseball season, the Bearcats’ defense wrecked Monday night.

    Seven errors, as scored by The Anderson News, allowed Collins to score six unearned runs in an 8-6 win over the Bearcats in a 30th District game at the Titans’ home park. Collins improved to 13-10 on the season and 3-2 in district play. Anderson, which had won two of its last three and was showing signs of coming around just in time for the post-season, fell to 3-16, 0-3.
