Sitting sixth in the District-3AAA standings, this week is an important one for the Anderson County ladies.
The Lady Mavs play both teams in front of them.
The Lady Mavs are two games behind Clinton, and have the same record as Halls, but lost the first head-to-head.
However, this week, Anderson County will finish up district play with bouts at Halls on Tuesday, before a massive game at Clinton on Friday.
If the Lady Mavs beat Halls and Clinton, they can steal the fourth spot from Clinton — only if the Lady Dragons drop two of their last three district contests.
Expect the Lady Mavs to be at their best this week.
