  • GIRLS' SOCCER: Lady Bearcat soccer learns about itself in opening week

    Anderson County's girls' soccer team might have learned more in a no-decision than any of its three games in the first week of the 2012 season.

    The Lady Bearcats went 1-1-1 in their first three games, routing Marion County 7-0 last Wednesday, but dropping a 2-0 decision at Russell on Saturday. Yet, it was a scoreless tie in the season opener at Harrison County that had Lady Bearcat coach Jason Earnest smiling.

    “A tie on the road to a pretty good team is always good,” he said. “I predict Harrison County to win (the 10th) Region this year.”
