Lady Bearcats handle Collins to lock up top district seed

The Anderson County girls’ basketball team locked up the top seed in next month’s 30th district tournament Friday night with a 58-44 victory over the Collins Lady Titans.

Anderson County led throughout the whole game, but pulled away late in the third quarter with a trio of energy plays that excited the players and the crowd.

“It was back and fourth and we kind of pulled away late but just the intensity of the game I thought was a really fun atmosphere to play in,” Birdwhistell said.
