    Spencer County junior Lindsey Bush took first place at the MKAC Cross Country meet last Tuesday, hosted for the first time ever in Spencer County.

    Bush topped a field of nearly 70 varsity girl runners in the 5K event at Tanglewood Golf Club, finishing the course in a time of 20:30, which ties her personal best.

    McKenna Pfeiffer didn’t feel pain until she glanced down to see the exposed thigh muscle and bone.

    Her femur had snapped as soon as the dune buggy — which surged suddenly as her boyfriend’s muddy foot slipped onto the gas pedal — pinned her to the trailer.
