BUCKNER - Even though it was the first round of the Eighth Region softball tournament, Anderson County admitted it was hard to keep its mind on the task at hand.
True, the Lady Bearcats routed 31st District runner-up Owen County 8-0 to advance to the semifinal round at Oldham County High School. But the Lady Bearcats seemed to struggle at the plate.
"At the plate, it was hard to stay focused," said Anderson senior Emily Ethington, who had 2 hits and a sacrifice fly.
"Our focus wasn't real good," added Anderson coach Brian Glass.
