Southwestern head coach Brady Days was grinning from ear to ear. Helping his daughter cut down a chunk of the net after winning the Shelby County Tournament on Saturday, Days was understandably excited. After 14 years with the Spartans, he knows how hard it is to win a county tournament — which made the moment with his daughter and his team after the game even more special.
Southwestern (9-3) rallied past the defending champions in Morristown on Friday before a date with Triton Central on Saturday. Behind stellar play from the Hartsell brothers, Anick and Aiden, the Spartans earned their first county tournament title since 2010. Anick, a junior, and Aiden, a sophomore, were named Co-Most Valuable Players after a 47-32 championship victory.
