Big plays mean big victory for Lady Cats

Taylor Brown knew her free throw attempts were so big that she called for divine help Saturday afternoon.

The Anderson County High School girls’ basketball team was clinging to a 50-47 lead over 30th District rival Spencer County when Brown, who had been scoreless, stepped to the free throw line for two shots with 13 seconds to play.

“She told us to pray for her so she would hit her shot,” smiled teammate Lauren Boblitt. “I told her I knew she could hit it.”
