CARROLLTON – In the end, this group of Anderson County Lady Bearcats only had eight lives.
They scrapped. They fought. They teetered on the brink of extinction all week long during the girls’ Eighth Region basketball tournament.
But a week that had seen them win one game with less than a second showing on the scoreboard clock, then joyously win another in overtime, did not have another heart-stopper for the Lady Bearcats to ride to victory.
