  • Bears beat Anderson 3-1

    Good pitching, clutch hitting and solid defense combined to give the Spencer County Bears an impressive 3-1 victory over visiting Anderson County last Thursday night.

    The Bearcats dented the plate in the first inning for a lone run but it could have been worse if not for a diving snag of a line drive in left field by Spencer County’s Cameron Smith that ended the inning with an Anderson runner stranded on third.

    In the third inning an unassisted double play by Bear 2nd baseman Timmy Riley ended another scoring threat by the Bearcats.

  • Lady Bears beat North Oldham

    Spring rains have been the toughest opponent the Lady Bears have faced this early season as wet weather has postponed a number of softball games. But the girls are 1-2 on the season after squeezing in a 4-1 victory over North Oldham in their lone game last week.

    They’ll hope for better weather this week as they were scheduled to travel to Shelby County on Tuesday and to Louisville Holy Cross on Wednesday. This weekend they’ll participate in a tournament at West Jessamine High School and will return home next Tuesday to host Eminence.


  • McCoughtry is Kentucky hoops...

    Basketball queen of Kentucky is Angel McCoughtry. Her coronation was mostly lost last week between things-Calipari, Baseball openers and The Masters.

    A man’s world.

    Yet, McCoughtry’s is a prime story - Good things do come to those who wait ... and grow up. She has. Best No. 35 at Louisville since No. 35 in 1980.
