  • Copenhaver named Homecoming Queen

    On Friday night in between the JV and varsity Lady Bearcat basketball games, Mattie Copenhaver was named the Anderson County High School Basketball Homecoming Queen.

    Copenhaver was escorted by Chase Smith. Copenhaver received the most votes out of five other candidates, with Marlie Garmon finishing as the runner-up.

    “It’s such an honor to be a representative of our high school,” Copenhaver said.

    Copenhaver and Smith are both seniors, meaning they only have a couple more months before their high school careers come to an end.

    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 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.

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.
