  • Bears get even with Collins

     

    Lukas Tackett drove in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning for the Spencer County Bears as they rallied to take a 12-8 victory at Collins last Tuesday night to split their two game series with their district rivals.

    The Bears lost the opening game at home, falling 8-3 on Monday. In that game, Blake Lambdin hit a two-run homer to stake the Bears to an early lead, but they were unable to hold it as the Titans pulled ahead in the later innings for the win.

  • Bears split series with Shelby

     

    The Spencer County Bears jumped right back into district action this week with a two game series against Collins, one week after splitting a pair of games against district rival Shelby County.

    The Bears traveled to Shelby County last Tuesday to open district play, and took a 6-3 victory over the Rockets.

    The teams were locked in a pitcher’s dual early on as Spencer County’s Blake Lambdin worked out of a couple of early inning jams to hold Shelby County scoreless through six innings.

  • Lady Bears take two of three,...

     

    The Spencer County Lady Bears bounced back from an early week district loss to Shelby County, to earn two solid wins to close out the week, including a 14-9 win over Pleasure Ridge Park during the Lady Bear Invitational held on Saturday.

    Spencer County, 13-6 on the season, opened the week by traveling to district rival Shelby County on Wednesday, and it took two extra innings for the Lady Rockets to pull out the 4-3 victory.

  • UK’s Elam knows he has room to...

    Before the Blue-White Game reached halftime, some Kentucky fans were complaining on Twitter about the play of junior nose guard Matt Elam.

    Out of shape. Too upright. Not aggressive. Gets pushed out of the way too easy. Lacks intensity.
    Elam knows the criticism is there. He picked UK over Alabama and during his first two seasons he has not met the lofty expectations most had for him. He filled in as a starter last year after Melvin Lewis was hurt, and this season Kentucky is counting on him to be the man in the middle of the defensive line.
