  • Lady Bears are growing up

     

    After two years of fielding one of the youngest teams in the region, the Spencer County Lady Bears now feel they have the experience and maturity to take the next step. They still have only one senior on the team, but this group has logged a lot of varsity minutes and should be prepared for the new season.

    “The perspective has changed a lot, said third-year coach Brandy Scott. “We are a very seasoned teams in terms of experience, but we are also more mature now. We still were not quite there last year.”

  • Close isn’t good enough for...

     

    Last year, the Spencer County Bears struggled through an 11-18 season, which included a heart-breaking two-point loss to Collins, an overtime loss in the district tournament to Anderson County, and a triple overtime loss to Shelby County.

    As the old saying goes, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, so while those tight games against district foes didn’t put any wins in the record books, they may create a little confidence for this year’s team.

  • The Bears’ RUN of success

     

    The Spencer County Bears football team has had unprecedented success the last two years and the recipe has been simple. Run the ball.

  • Cal’s next class taking shape

    The recruitment of 6-5 Chattanooga guard Shai Alexander was like a “rocket ship movement” in the last year and he finally landed at the University of Kentucky.

    “Over the past year he has gone from somebody nobody knew with low major recruitment to a high level top 50 player in the class,” said Zach Ferrell, Alexander’s coach at Hamilton Heights. “His size for a point guard is awesome. He has a great work ethic and knows how to treat teammates. He’s a great person.”

  • Outdoors - HIP keeps tabs on...

    Kentucky is drawing national attention after dramatically improving the accuracy of harvest and participation information collected from its waterfowl and migratory bird hunters.

    The Harvest Information Program (HIP) provides state and federal biologists with data to generate reliable estimates of migratory bird hunter activity and harvest. The estimates are used to help shape season dates, bag limits and population management.

  • Outdoors - Drought shouldn’t...

    The moderate drought conditions across Kentucky brought baked, cracked yards, dust, fires and streams as low as any time in recent memory. This would seem a negative for the upcoming waterfowl season, but the summer’s ample rains provided a cushion against the fall dry spell.

  • Bears fall to John Hardin 36-22

     

    For the second year in a row, the Spencer County Bears saw their season end in a second-round playoff loss to John Hardin. And like last year, it was a battle that came up just a little short, 36-22.

  • Win or lose - you gotta love...

     

    The end of the season is always hard. Watching athletes who have dedicated most of the year to training, practicing and competing game after game, only to see the season end in a loss is not a pleasant occasion.

  • Bears advance with 28-7 win

     

    Overcoming some sloppy play, five turnovers and several penalties, the Spencer County Bears were able to survive Louisville Valley and their own mistakes in claiming a 28-7 victory in the first round of the playoffs Friday night in Taylorsville.

    Despite some hiccups, the Bears put the game away in the third quarter and didn’t give up a score until late in the contest.
