Expectations and perspective are best seen in high school sports in the way those involved describe a program
Take the Anderson County girls’ basketball program, for example.
Lady Bearcat coach Clay Birdwhistell talks of having to rebuild his program. He has done so for three seasons.
Most other observers call the natural replenishing process at Anderson a reloading. It’s been that way ever since the Lady Bearcats became one of the Eighth Region powers a decade ago.
For 2017-18, both would be right.
