  • Three pointers carry Bears to 72-56 victory

    On the strength of great three-point shooting, the Spencer County Bears took down Western Hills last Tuesday night before a large crowd at home, 72-52.

    The Bears opened up with a barrage of three-pointers, two by Jackson Cole, and one each by Jake Whitlock and Jacob Seawright as they raced out to a 12-0 lead early on. They extended that lead to 19-5 when Lucas drained a three-pointer and Western Hills seemed to be in a fog.

    They would right themselves and battle back, going on a 9-2 run at the end of the quarter to cut it to 21-14.

    Following the tragic shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, CT several years ago that left 26 people dead, including 20 children, many communities worked to place armed police officers inside schools as a deterrent.

    The City of Taylorsville and Spencer County Schools partnered together for such a program and for the past four years, two school resource officers have become familiar sights inside the halls of the local schools.
