  • Bearcats open district title defense Friday

    All the kinks had better be taken care of before Friday.

    Anderson County opens Class 5A, District 6 play that night when the Bearcats travel to Montgomery County. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

    Prior to the season, this one looked to be the contest that might decide who stays home and who goes on the road in the first round of the state playoffs. While Anderson is the defending district champ, Montgomery was seen as the darkhorse, capable of knocking off either the Bearcats or Franklin County, which has shared district dominance with Anderson since 2011.
