Spencer County piled on the points against Bullitt Central in a 77-42 win over the Cougars. It also nearly rushed for state-record yardage in a single game as a team.
The Bears (5-0) ran for 737 yards, the second most in state history behind Conner's 745 as a team against Franklin County on Nov. 11, 2011. The previous second-best mark was Henderson County's 710 yards against Ohio County in 1997.
Never miss a local story.
Logan Holbrook had 260 yards and five TDs for the Bears on Friday. They're off to their best start in school history since the program began in 2004.
Spencer County is averaging 456.6 rushing yards per game, a mark that would far surpass the state record held by Western's 2006 squad (408.7).
The Jaguars (3-2) start a three-game home stand by hosting Lexington Catholic this Friday.
Sacred Heart claimed the Lady Knights Challenge Cup championship at Lexington Catholic on Saturday night, capping its run through the tournament with a 3-0 win over Notre Dame in the finals.
Cassie Amshoff scored two goals for the Valkyries (9-3), who are on a six-game win streak during which they haven't allowed a goal. Sacred Heart has allowed just five goals this year.
Tates Creek went 1-2 in the tournament, ending with a 1-0 win over Elizabethtown.

Lexington Christian advanced to the championship bracket after going 3-0 in pool play against Wolfe County, Caldwell County and Walton-Verona (perhaps exacting a bit of revenge for the football team's loss to the Bearcats on Friday). It beat
