  • Lady Bears can’t keep run going

     

    The Spencer County Lady Bears, winners of their last seven games, ran out of steam at the same time as they ran into the 8th Region’s top team last Tuesday, falling to Anderson County 10-0 in the first round of the 30th District Tournament in Shelbyville.

    The Bearcats, 27-8 on the season, set the tone early on with a big four-run first inning, bolstered by a single, an error and a couple of walks that loaded the bases and lit up the scoreboard.

  • Track and field athletes fare...

     

    Track and field athletes from Spencer County High School had an impressive showing at the Kentucky State Track meet at the University of Kentucky Saturday.

    Senior Kynan Smith had the best individual finish of the day, finishing 4th out of 24 runners in the Boys 400 Meter dash with a time of 50:68, which also set a school record. In the same race, his brother Kadin finished in tenth place, with a time of 51:29.

    Kynan’s performance was one of two medal-winning efforts.

  • Bears fall to Anderson in...

     

    It was a pitchers’ duel Tuesday night as the Spencer County Bears and the Anderson County Bearcats squared off in the opening round of the 30th District Baseball Tournament at Shelby County.

    The Bears’ Blake Lambdin took the mound and was scuffed up early, but settled down to keep his team within striking distance, but the bats for the Bears never could get going and Spencer County fell 2-0, to end their season.

  • Choose wisely when kayak fishing

    The first time I fished a stream out of a kayak, you may have heard the oaths I swore in Tennessee. It was a short, cockpit or sit-in style kayak. I had a hard time controlling its tippy tendencies.

    After an hour or so, my back began to hurt trying to keep the boat in position to properly fish. I had little room to stow my rod and tackle. I eventually bought a personal pontoon boat for my stream fishing, forsaking a kayak because of this bad experience.

  • Bears drop 2 of final 3

     

    The Spencer County Bears baseball team struggled down the stretch of the season, losing four of their last five games, including two of three last week.

    They ended the regular season with a 13-16 record and were scheduled to take on Anderson County Monday at 6 p.m. at Shelbyville.

    The boys got their week started off right with a 5-0 victory over Louisville Seneca last Monday.

    The Bears’ Blake Lambdin pitched a complete game, scattering three hits over seven innings and striking out eight to keep the Redhawks grounded.
