    The Spencer County Lady Bears softball headed south this week with an unblemished 7-0 record, thanks to an unselfish attitude that coach Brian Glass said has been key to their success so far this season.

    “I believe that a team’s success is determined by the willingness to sacrifice for one another and their effort,” said Glass.

    “They can’t be worried about their individual accomplishments, but rather their team accomplishments. The effort and attitude of the girls have gotten them off to this good start.”
