  • SCHS gets tough draw, loses first round

    The Spencer County Lady Bears have taken two huge steps over the past couple of years, but last week they got a glimpse of how big that next step is going to be.

    Advancing to the 8th Region Tournament for the first time in years, the Lady Bears got an unfortunate draw in the first round, and had to face the Region’s top team in Simon Kenton at South Oldham. The outcome was decided early, but the Lady Bears at least showed some fight before the final horn sealed the eventual 61-34 score.

  • LETTER: Do the bridge project right

  • Young Bears team reflects on a dismal season

    Boys high school basketball in Kentucky is winding down with the Sweet Sixteen slated for next week at Rupp Arena. Those who watched the Spencer County Bears suffer through a dismal 6-22 record this year might not give much thought to titles and trophies, but while the young squad has plenty of room for improvement, they’ve got plenty of time to reach it.

    “I definitely knew that this would be a tough year for us coming in with such a young team,” said head coach Jacob Barmore.
