  • Arredondo to swim at state...

    For the second consecutive season, the Anderson County swim & dive team will have a swimmer compete in the KHSAA State Swimming Championships, which is this upcoming weekend in Louisville.

    Junior swimmer Riley Arredondo qualified for state in the 100-yard butterfly and the 500-yard free at the 6th Region Championships two weeks ago. This will be Arredondo’s second trip to the state meet, as he qualified last year with his brother, Reece Arredondo, as a sophomore.

  • Mat Cats struggle at state

    LEXINGTON -- This past weekend, the Anderson County wrestling team competed at the KHSAA Wrestling State Championships, but did not perform the way they had hoped.

    Five Mat Cat wrestlers competed in different weight brackets, but only one advanced far enough to compete on the second day of the championships.

  • PJ Washington’s case for SEC P.O...

    Ever since Tennessee surpassed expectations last season and became a competitive basketball team, these Tennessee vs. Kentucky battles have been some of the more entertaining games.

    Part of that is because of the rivalry going on between PJ Washington and Grant Williams in the paint.

    The two players are virtual basketball player clones. They’re both 6’7” small forwards with a very versatile skillset, featuring an arsenal of post moves and a touch of shooting form behind the three-point line.

  • Bearcats drop second straight to...

    After returning home from a six-game road trip for Senior Night, the Anderson County boys’ basketball hosted Franklin County in hopes of ending their regular season with a win, but instead dropped their second straight game with a 47-35 loss to the Flyers.

    The Bearcats led by three at halftime, but were outscored 29-14 in the second half to end their regular season with a 14-12 record.

  • ‘Secret to basketball’ unlocks...

    If you look in the record book for the Anderson County girls’ basketball team, you’ll find Jaclynn Ruble’s name all over it.

    The senior guard is creeping up on the top five on the Lady Bearcat career-scoring list. Ruble is in the top 10 on Anderson County’s all-time steals, made free throws and made three-pointers list, and was just named a candidate for Kentucky’s Miss Basketball, becoming only the fourth Lady Bearcat to do so.

  • Mental improvements helping...

    For anyone who has watched Brennon Maxberry play basketball, they’ve seen the senior guard sprint up and down the court at full speed many times, either looking for some space in the paint for a layup or guarding the opposing team’s best player.

    Maxberry’s high-speed style of play can result in mistakes being made. With the game going as fast as it does for Maxberry, there are instances where he’s forced to make a decision in a matter of seconds, which sometimes isn’t enough time to make the right decision.

  • Bearcats continue clash with...

    For the fourth consecutive year, the road to the 8th Regional Tournament goes through Spencer County for the Bearcat basketball team.

    After earning the No. 3 seed for the 30th District Tournament, Anderson County will matchup against the Bears of Spencer County for their district tournament semifinal game. This will be the ninth time in the 14 years since Spencer joined the 30th District that the two teams have matched up against each other in the semifinals.

  • Lady Bearcats beat 7th Region...

    After coming off a big 8th Region win over Walton-Verona this past weekend, the Anderson County girls’ basketball team picked up another big win on Tuesday night, defeating 7th Region contender Male 60-49.

  • Lady Bearcats headline All-...

    With the regular season just about wrapped up, that means it’s time for two things: the postseason and awards.

    On Monday, three Lady Bearcats were named to the 2018-19 Girls All 8th Region basketball team, as Jaclynn Ruble, Lauren Boblitt and Sophie Smith all received enough votes to make the 15-woman team

    Ruble and Boblitt made the All-Region team last season, making Smith the 18th Lady Bearcat to be named to the All-Region team.

  • Lady Bearcats get a taste of...

    With the postseason tournaments not far off the horizon, the Anderson County girls’ basketball team got a little sneak peak of what the postseason will look like this past weekend.

    For the Lady Bearcats, it started on Friday night with a home game against Woodford County. Anderson handled the Lady Yellow Jackets pretty easily, beating them by 34 points, but the game had a postseason feel to it because of the many festivities that brought out a big crowd.
