  • Tired phone cries foul

    A word to the wise if you are attending basketball games this winter: Make sure your cell phone is fully charged.

    “Did you wear your phone out tweeting about this one,” Anderson County boys' basketball coach Glen Drury asked as we got ready for the usual post-game interview last Thursday.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Anderson...

    HODGENVILLE – On a day when the big-time talent was on display, it was some unheralded reserves who shone the brightest.

    Sophomore Kaci Currens came off the bench to score 16 points while junior Corrin Robinson added 11 to boost top-ranked Anderson County to a 69-51 win over host LaRue County in the Corky Cox Classic at LaRue County High School on Saturday.

  • Anderson sports schedules...

    UPDATED, 6 P.M. FRIDAY: The Shelby County Holiday Classic swim meet has been canceled, according to Anderson County coach Karla Williams.

    The weather has already played havoc with Anderson County's weekend sports schedule.

    One of the biggest early-season girls' basketball games, Anderson County at LaRue County, originally scheduled for 2 p.m. on Saturday, has been moved up to noon on Saturday.

  • COLUMN: Heartbreaking loss can...

    There were tears, certainly, but stunned looks were the most familiar sights around Anderson County football Friday night.

    That was understandable after the Bearcats had seen Pulaski County rally from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter and score the winning touchdown with only 46 seconds left.

    It was on a fourth down play, at that.

    Stunning. Deep hurt. And now, for those who will return in 2014, eight months to think about, “What if?” For those who won't, there will be a lasting hurt.

  • FOOTBALL: Premium showdown,...

    Anderson County had enough gas to get to Bowling Green, but the Bearcats apparently got a fill up with regular when premium was needed Friday night.

    Pulaski County saw to that. On a night when the Bearcats put forward a good, but not stellar effort, it simply was not enough. The Bearcats' engine knocked at inopportune times and Pulaski rallied from a 10-point deficit to end the Bearcats' season, 20-17, in the Class 5A state semifinals at Anderson's Hollie Warford Stadium.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcat boys to open...

    Anderson County begins its boys' basketball journey Thursday, hoping that East Jessamine is the first step on a road to Rupp Arena in March.

    The Bearcats, considered by most to be one of the better teams in a wide-open Eighth Region chase, host East Jessamine in their season opener. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. with the junior varsity game in the preliminary contest.

    East Jessamine was to have opened the season Tuesday night at Pulaski County.

  • BASKETBALL: Rams take Nelson...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg Rams rolled to three impressive wins to claim the championship of the Nelson County Baptist School Invitational Tournament on Nov. 22-23.

    The first game of the annual tournament pitted the Rams against the Eagles of Anchored Christian School from Bowling Green. With great scoring by the guards and a relentless defense, the Rams jumped out to a 22-point halftime lead. After an even third period, CAL came out in the final period of the game with a full head of steam and managed to outscore the Eagles 18-5 capping off the win 69-34.

  • BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats rout...

    The polls only start conversations. Anderson County's girls' basketball team would rather let their game do the talking.

    At least the No. 1-ranked Lady Bearcats did that Monday night, routing what is expected to be a nice Casey County team, 78-45, in the season opener for both teams.

  • BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats get...

    Anderson County will put its No. 1 ranking on the line three times in the next week against some teams who have their sights set not only on knocking the Lady Bearcats off early in the basketball season, but on making statewide noise in March.

  • WRESTLING: Mat Cats finish third...

    Anderson County wrestling got off to a good start with a third place finish in the Bryan Station Duals, held Saturday in Lexington.

    The Bearcats won three matches, defeating the host school, Scott County and The All-Stars, a team of unattached wrestlers.

    The Bearcats dropped matches to perennial powers Campbell County, the meet runner-up, and Woodford County, which won the meet.

    Taylor Logsdon, wrestling at 145 pounds, finished the day undefeated in five matches while Cody Dillow, at 152, won four of five.
