The year has begun the same way but Anderson County's girls' soccer team does not want a repeat performance from 2008.
The Lady Bearcats already have a gold medal from the Bluegrass State games and a win over perennial power South Oldham, just as last summer. But reality is sometimes a harsh teacher: Not one of those victories really mattered.
Nice and prestigious, for sure, but they were till scrimmages.
Anderson hopes to have learned the hard lesson a year ago.
