The target on Anderson County's back just got much bigger.
When the first major statewide girls' basketball poll came out Friday, Anderson was at the top of the Courier-Journal rankings. The Lady Bearcats were a solid, but not overwhelming, choice as the top team in Kentucky in a vote of the state's coaches.
Anderson garnered 39 first-place votes, well ahead of second-ranked Elizabethtown, which picked up 15. Anderson defeated E-town last December in the Franklin County tournament.
