  • It's that 'hurry up' time to relax

    I love Christmas. With decorations and music and all the things to remind us whose birthday is being celebrated. It’s that time of year when we kick back in our recliners and flip on the game as the aroma of a freshly cut tree fills the house.

    Wish I had a recliner. I once had a recliner, but wore it out. Now, I’m just as comfortable sitting on a pillow in a straight back chair. But back to the important subject matter. It is time to celebrate the birth of our Lord and savior.

  • Girls fall 55-39 to Western Hills

    The Spencer County Lady Bears fell behind in the second quarter and never could recover as they dropped a 55-39 decision to Western Hills last Monday at home.

    The Lady Bears kept it close early as they battled the Lady Wolverines bucket for bucket through most of the first quarter.

    A McKenna Pfeiffer steal and layup followed by a short jumper by MacKenzie Keown knotted the game at four, and Krysten Barlow’s bucket underneath tied the game up at 7-7 halfway through the first quarter before Western Hills went on a 8-2 run to end the period.

  • Bears move to 3-2

    Coming into the season, Coach Jacob Barmore knew that for his team to be competitive, they’d have to get scoring from junior guard Brandon Miller and senior sharpshooter Ros Goodwin. He also knew that in order to go beyond competitive, at least one other scorer would have to emerge.

    Last Tuesday, against Western Hills, the Bears may have seen the third scorer accept that role as junior Bridger Knotts led the way with 21 points on the way to a 69-54 win over the Wolverines.
