    Spencer County demonstrated its size advantage early on, going inside early and often to take a 13-4 lead. Seniors Chelsea Stephens and Amie Conley combined for nine of the Lady Bears’ first 11 points, most of which came inside the paint.

    The Stallions bested a team from Milford, Ohio in their first game, then advanced to the second round, where they topped a team from Athens, TN. That put them in the semi-finals where they fell to a squad from West Virginia. Still their performance was good enough for a third place finish nationally, according to their coach, Michael Payne.
