  • Homers do harm as Bears fall to...

     

    The ball was flying out of the yard during Monday night’s opening round of the 30th district baseball tournament in Taylorsville. Unfortunately, most of the round-trippers were hit by Shelby County as they rolled to a 15-6 victory, ending Spencer County’s season.

    Blake Lambdin got the start on the mound for the Bears, and early on kept the Rockets grounded to one run in the first two innings.

  • Lady Bears fight to the end

     

    The Spencer County Lady Bears came up one run short in their bid to upset top-seeded Anderson County, losing 2-1 in a drama-filled seventh inning.

    Trailing most of the way, the Lady Bears used pitching and solid defense to keep things close, as Emily Cole baffled Anderson batters most of the evening.

    However, the Anderson County pitcher was equally effective on the mound, and the Lady Bears were staring at elimination heading into their final at-bat in Monday night’s opening round of the 30th District Tournament, hosted by Spencer County.

  • Bears slam their way to win

     

    The Spencer County Bears have a knack for getting a big knock just when they need it. On Friday, the big hit came courtesy Blake Lambdin, who belted a grand-slam home run in the bottom of the sixth inning to help the Bears rally past Carroll County 8-5.

  • Now’s the time to catch bluegill...

     

    May is a special time for anglers who chase redear sunfish and bluegill as they move into the shallows to spawn.

    “I think we still might be a week or so from the peak for redear fishing,” said Maj. Shane Carrier, assistant director of law enforcement for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “The old timers say the timing is all about the full moon in May, but this year the full moon isn’t until May 21. I do best the second week and going into the third week of May.”

  • Adebayo loves spending time in...

    Whenever he can, Kentucky signee Bam Adebayo likes to be in the gym … and not just when he is working out or playing a game.

    “I am in the gym every day. I just love being in the gym. Even if I am just sitting there, and sometimes I do that, I love it,” said Adebayo. “I’ve always been that way.”

    Kentucky coach John Calipari has not tried to add his feelings about Adebayo, who was a double-double machine in high school.

  • Lady Bears roll to 15-3 win

     

    On the night they celebrated their seniors, it was an eighth-grader who delivered the big blow for the Spencer County Lady Bears during their 15-3 win over Thomas Nelson High School.

    Elisabeth Huckleberry smacked a line-drive grandslam homerun over the fence in left centerfield in the bottom of the second inning to put Spencer County up 6-2, and they never looked back on their way to a big victory Thursday.
