  • Girls' regional and state...

  • ONLINE EXTRA: Kays says Lady...

    While most observers are already penciling in an Anderson County-Simon Kenton girls Eighth Region championship game for the fifth time in seven years, Anderson coach Tony Kays says such talk is premature.

    Anderson is scheduled to play Walton-Verona in the tournament's final first round game. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 5 at Grant County High School.

  • UPDATED: Lady Bearcats open...

    Anderson County will open its road through the girls' Eighth Region Tournament Wednesday night when the Lady Bearcats take on Walton-Verona in the final first round game at Grant County. Tip off is set for 8 p.m.

  • DISTRICT CHAMPS! McKee leads...

    SHELBYVILLE – If the Anderson County girls' basketball team wants bigger and better hardware for the trophy case, the Lady Bearcats might do well by purchasing packages – no, make that cases – of chewing gum.

    Fruit Stripe.

    A few minutes before the tip off of the 30th District championship game, Anderson County senior Eriel McKee moseyed over to the scorer's table where she got a stick of Fruit Stripe from scorekeeper Larry Briscoe.

  • Titans turn back Bearcats in...

    SHELBYVILLE – Anderson County knew it would need every ounce of energy from every available body to upset Collins in the 30th District Tournament semifinals.

    Top-seeded Collins might be fielding the best team in the school's short history, had begun being ranked by the computer rating services at the end of the season and had not lost to an Eighth Region foe all season.

  • Lady Bearcats rout Spencer,...

    SHELBYVILLE – Realism and expectations are not always the same thing, especially in high school sports.

    Anderson County's girls' basketball team left no doubt concerning its superiority over Spencer County, posting a 73-28 win in the 30th District Tournament semifinal Tuesday night at Shelby County High School.

    No one gave Spencer, a team that finished the year at 7-22 any kind of shot at upsetting the second-ranked Lady Bearcats. That just was not going to happen.
