  • COLUMN: No right answers when...

    Occasionally, there really are no-win situations in sports.

    No winners. No losers.

    And, there is no overtime to determine the winner or a satisfactory solution. Those involved can only do the best they can with what they've got at their disposal under difficult circumstances.

  • WRESTLING: Anderson County...

    A showdown with a Top 5 team highlights the upcoming week for the Anderson County girls' basketball team.

    The Lady Bearcats tangle with another of Kentucky's better teams when they entertain Franklin County tonight, Jan. 8, at 7:45 p.m. The game is part of a triple-header between the teams and will be preceded by the freshman teams at 5:15 and junior varsity at 6:30.

    In the Rating the State rankings that appeared in Monday's Lexington Herald-Leader, Anderson was tied with Elizabethtown for the No. 1 ranking while Franklin County came in at No. 3.


    TAYLORSVILLE – If every American worker returned from a vacation like the Anderson County girls' basketball team did Saturday, the economy would probably be robust in no time flat.

    Playing another team – albeit one that was terribly over-matched – for the first time in 11 days, Anderson held Spencer scoreless for the second and third quarters of a 70-8 rout.

    “We really wanted to play,” said Anderson senior Jessica Rice.

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Bearcats...

    No hype is needed for the next two dates on the Anderson County boys' basketball schedule.

    It's really very simple: Shelby County on Friday and Collins on Tuesday are the biggest regular-season games on the Bearcats' schedule. It's not even close.

    Both are 30th District foes and at least earning a split is imperative for a good seed in the district tournament at the end of the year. Win both and the Bearcats only need to beat a young, but improving, Spencer County team for the No. 1 seed.
