    The game was a continuation of a contest suspended by weather Tuesday, the second game of a two-game district series with the Bearcats. Anderson County had actually taken a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning Tuesday before lightening brought the game to an end.

    Collins (21-7) jumped out to a 6-1 lead before the Lady Bears mounted a rally.

    “We hit it hard a few times, but right at people,” said Spencer County Coach Jimmy Schmidt. “Our girls fought hard for each other. To fight til the last out says a lot about this group.”

  • Look for more personality from...

    Ask Derek Willis a question during a media interview session and he’ll give you a straight forward answer. He does not dodge questions. He just doesn’t go overboard with answers.

    The Bears lost the opening game at home, falling 8-3 on Monday. In that game, Blake Lambdin hit a two-run homer to stake the Bears to an early lead, but they were unable to hold it as the Titans pulled ahead in the later innings for the win.
