    The Spencer County Lady Bears softball team was scheduled to begin their postseason play with a game Tuesday night in Shelbyville where they were to take on the winner of the Eminence-Shelby County game from Monday night.

    However, a heavy downpour minutes later rendered the field unplayable and the game was postponed and the tournament was to resume when weather allowed, possibly Tuesday afternoon.
