    Do you ever wonder what drives athletes? Serious athletes devote hours each day to training, practicing and perfecting the skills necessary to excel. But why?

    There’s no escaping this heat – but athletes at Spencer County High School have at least been trying to avoid the worst of it as they prepare for the upcoming seasons.
