  • Bears earning respect of Central...

    The Spencer County Bears began the season by building a reputation as a team that could compete against anybody. While they ended their regular season on a down note with some lopsided defeats, they closed out their 2009 campaign by gaining back some of that respect in a hard-fought 56-36 loss to two-time defending State Champion Louisville Central Friday night.

    “I am very proud of the way our men battled against a very good Central team,” said first year Head Coach Wes Napper. “I think we gave them more of a game than what they had initially thought.”
