Pool play begins Friday night at 6 p.m. with games going in two different gyms at the high school. The championship games are set for Saturday at 7 p.m.

“The SMASH Tournament is a wonderful opportunity for Anderson County High School and for our Bearcats' volleyball program,” Anderson coach Courtney DeLong said in a news release. “To our knowledge it’s the largest in the school’s history and we’re working hard to ensure it is a very successful experience for each team.”

The tournament will feature 12 teams from around the state and promises to be a very competitive tournament. Pool A includes Anderson County, Madison Central, Thomas Nelson and Danville. Pool B includes Spencer County, Western Hills, Allen Central and a team to be determined. Pool C includes Washington County, Monticello, Bardstown and Campbellsville.

Mercer County had been listed in the tournament but had to pull out at the last minute. At press time, the Anderson coaches were still working on a replacement team.
