  • Bright future for Lady Bears


    With the tying run just 60 feet away and a monumental upset within reach, you might excuse Spencer County High School softball coach Jimmy Schmidt for being down in the dumps when his Lady Bears came up just short last Monday night, falling 2-1 to eighth-ranked Anderson County in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament.
