  • Lady Bears fall to Anderson


    For the better part of two quarters, it looked as though the Spencer County Lady Bears might be on the verge of picking up a signature win as they led Anderson County 20-16 with six minutes left in the first half. However, Anderson County’s long-range shooting spurred them to an 18-3 run to end the half, including a three-pointer at the buzzer to go up 34-23 at the break, on their way to a 74-47 victory in Taylorsville Thursday night.

    “We were off to an excellent start and played well the entire game,” said Lady Bears Coach Brandy Scott.

  • Lady Bears are a work in progress


    The Spencer County Lady Bears are a work in progress, the key word being progress.

    Most of the minutes being logged for the girls are from players who are sophomores and freshmen. That means this young team is learning as they go.

  • Education - SCHS students selected to All-State Chorus


    Spencer County High School Choir participants are making a change for the better. The first year Ms. Kelsie Shipley, SCHS Choir Director, sent kids to audition in 2013 for the KMEA All-State  Choir, no students from SCHS made it.  Competing against students all around the state for these spots is not an easy task.  

    Last school year, 2014-2015, Ms. Shipley had three students make it; Shelby Hughes, Halee Hood, and Patrick Sweazy.  This year, 2015-2016, Ms. Shipley had six students make the KMEA All-State Choir.
