  • BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats turn...

    Anderson County rallied from a five-point deficit to defeat upset-minded Dunbar in girls' basketball action last Thursday in Lexington.

    Down 34-29, the Lady Bearcats reeled off the next 13 points to take control for their second win of the season.

    “We know that everyone is going to bring their best game against us,” said Tony Kays, coach of the top-ranked Lady Bearcats.

    Since John Calipari and Tom Crean could not come to an agreeement on how to play that formerly annual December love-fest, it must have been left up to the high schools.

    At one of Indiana's best girls' basketball teams is next on the agenda for Anderson County's top-ranked Lady Bearcats.

  • BASKETBALL: Carson's 54...

    Things might not go exactly according to the prescribed script but the final ending is all that really matters.

    East Jessamine junior Ronnie Carson lit up host Anderson County for 54 points, a Jaguar record, but the Bearcats held on to prevail 94-91 in boys' basketball action Thursday night.

  • WRESTLING: Only shot gives Mat...

    BARDSTOWN – It was kind of like being down five, lining up at the opponent's 25-yard-line and having a minute to play.

    Anderson County knew there was only one path to a first-ever win over perennial power LaRue County.

    “I told Isaac Mason, 'We need a pin,'” a beaming Anderson coach David Lannum said moments after the Bearcats had scored a 42-41 win in the Nelson County quad-match last Wednesday.

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

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

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

  • 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.
