Spencer County’s Alyssa Howie, a sophomore, will be starting her fourth season of varsity basketball for the Lady Bears this week. After a couple of seasons fielding one of the region’s youngest squads, the Lady Bears now finally have a veteran team that hopes to compete with some of the more traditionally strong teams in the area.
Lady Bears are growing up


After two years of fielding one of the youngest teams in the region, the Spencer County Lady Bears now feel they have the experience and maturity to take the next step. They still have only one senior on the team, but this group has logged a lot of varsity minutes and should be prepared for the new season.

“The perspective has changed a lot, said third-year coach Brandy Scott. “We are a very seasoned teams in terms of experience, but we are also more mature now. We still were not quite there last year.”
