  • Patience pays off for Bearcats

    VERSAILLES -- Between Jan. 26-31, the Anderson County boys’ basketball team had two of its games canceled due to weather, which at the time was unfortunate since the players wanted to play.

    Fast-forward to Feb. 2 and that extra time off from games proved to be a benefit for the Bearcats, as it helped them pull off a big 54-47 win at Woodford County.

  • Super Bowl wasn’t all that bad

    After the conclusion of Super Bowl LIII, which the Patriots won over the Rams 13-3, there were two things that I primarily saw on my Twitter feed.

    Tom Brady is the greatest of all time and the game was super boring.

    I’ll get to the latter point in a second, but yes, I do believe Brady is the G.O.A.T. He has more Super Bowl rings than he does fingers on either one of his hands, and he’s got plenty of NFL records that prove he’s more than just someone who plays well in the playoffs.

  • Cornish commits to EKU

    The next time that former Bearcat linebacker Colton Cornish suits up for a regular season football game, he will do so in a stadium that seats roughly 20,000 fans.

    On Saturday afternoon, Cornish announced his commitment to the Eastern Kentucky Colonel football team, an NCAA division one program, on Twitter. Cornish will be a preferred walk-on at EKU and will be the seventh former Bearcat since 2005 to play at a division one school.

  • Coming home at last

    The last time the Anderson County girls’ basketball team played a string of home games, the Lady Bearcats were only nine games into their season and Christmas was still 10 days away.

    Since then Anderson has played 15 of its last 16 games on the road, going 12-4 during that span. With only five games left of the regular season, the Lady Bearcats will now return to a venue that’s familiar and unfamiliar at the same time, that is their home gymnasium.

  • 6th grade Mustangs win...

    NICHOLASVILLE -- Better late than never, as they always say.

    That saying applied to the Anderson County Middle School 6th grade boys basketball team on Monday night, as they showed up 10 minutes before tipoff only to crush Lincoln County 42-21 to win the Salt River Conference Championship.

    “Our A.D. forgot to call the bus garage to get a bus so we showed up right at 5:30, had 10 minutes to warm-up,” Mustang head coach Wayne Wilder said after the game.

  • Former Lady Bearcats coming back...

    Friday night’s Anderson County girls’ basketball game won’t just be any ordinary game for everyone in attendance, as the team will host a notable amount of alumni back in Lawrenceburg for the first annual Lady Bearcat Legacy Night.

    As of Tuesday morning, 50 former Lady Bearcats are signed up to return to Anderson County for Legacy Night to celebrate the past and remind everyone how deep the Lady Bearcats’ program goes. Alums of all ages will be present and all the former Lady Bearcats will be honored during a ceremony at halftime.

  • Bearcats pick up big win at...

    VERSAILLES – After having their last two games canceled because of inclement weather, the Anderson County boys’ basketball team used that extra rest and practice time to their advantage on Saturday night and upset the Woodford County Yellow Jackets 54-47.

  • Lady Bearcats collect third...

    LEXINGTON – On Friday night the Anderson County girls’ basketball team won its third straight game by at least 30 points with 72-39 win over Tates Creek.

    This is the second time this season and the fifth time since 1998 that the Lady Bearcats have won three consecutive games by at least 30 points. This is the first such streak that has taken place with all games being played on the road.

  • Boblitt named to All-Star team

    This offseason, Lady Bearcat senior Lauren Boblitt will play in her first career All-Star game as she’s been named to the Kentucky High School Girls Basketball All-Star team.

    Boblitt and her Kentucky teammates will play Ohio’s All-Star team on April 13 at Thomas More College in northern Kentucky. Boblitt mailed in her application less than a week ago, and is now set to participate in the game next month.

  • Little details spark big change...

    A span of four days featured two different versions of the Anderson County girls’ basketball team last week.

    On Jan. 23, the Lady Bearcats suffered their largest defeat of the season with an 11-point loss to Franklin County. In that game, Anderson’s offense turned the ball over more than usual while doing little to stop Franklin’s offense.
