Shelby ends Lady Bearcats' district reign

TAYLORSVILLE – Shelby County withstood an early Anderson County punch, then methodically overcame the Lady Bearcats with a 48-38 decision in the girls' 30th District Tournament Friday night at Spencer County High School.

Shelby ended Anderson's six-year stranglehold on the district title even though the Lady Bearcats exploded to a 9-1 lead just over three minutes into the game.
