  • Anderson girls get costly win over Eminence

    Anderson County jumped to a 16-4 lead after a quarter then continued to build the margin on the way to a 68-16 win over visiting Eminence on Friday night.

    Twelve different Anderson players scored as they remained unbeaten in district play and moved to 11-5 on the season.
