Barmore said Bears must prepare now for next season
It was hard for fans of the Spencer County Bears not to think ahead this season. Sure, there was plenty to celebrate during the just completed 15-9 run, which was a vast improvement over the six-win season from a year ago. But the end of the season loss to Anderson County in the district tournament now seems like it was just the unofficial tip-off to what could potentially be an historic season for Spencer County basketball next year.
Though wintry weather continues to shake Kentucky, it won’t be long before runners and walkers kick off the chill and head for an outside track. Now’s the time to reserve your spot to test your mettle surrounded by the beautiful green landscapes of each location for the annual Kentucky State Parks’ race series held on four Saturdays, April through July.
The 2010 schedule includes 5K competitions at four different parks, each with individual scenic and terrain personalities.
In just his second year as a head coach, Spencer County’s Daniel Cox has already experienced some extreme highs and lows.
Last year, Cox took over a Lady Bears’ program that had bowed out of postseason without a win for nearly a decade, and led them to an emotional win in the 30th District Tournament over Shelby County, advancing to the 8th Region Tournament.
There are few guarantees in sports, but one thing is about as certain as it gets – when Spencer County and Anderson County square off for a boys basketball game, no one is leaving the gym until the final buzzer.
The Spencer County Lady Bears saw a long season come to an end Wednesday night in Shelby County as they bowed out of the 30th District Tournament with a 65-38 loss to Shelby County.
Decided underdogs coming in, the Lady Bears got on the scoreboard first when MacKenzie Smith drained a three-pointer in the game’s first minute for a quick 3-0 lead. However, Shelby County answered with a three-pointer of their own on their way to running off 15 straight points to establish a big lead that they would never relinquish.
