  • EARLIER: End of an Era

     Everyone knew the end would finally come. And everyone associated with the Anderson County-Shelby County high school athletic rivalry knew it would happen on the baseball or softball diamond.

    But few could have imagined the end being a series of exclamation points instead of a period.

    And after Shelby outlasted Anderson 10-9 last Thursday, some on both sides lamented the end of the rivalry as it stands now.
