  • Rockets blast Bears 62-31


    It was a tale of two halves Friday night, unfortunately for Spencer County, the story ended in a nightmarish script as the Shelby County Rockets exploded for 41 unanswered points on their way to a 62-31 victory, ending the Bears’ hopes for a school-first district title.

    Spencer County put together an impressive first half, taking a 24-14 lead into the locker room, but a mistake-riddled third quarter doomed the Bears who were steamrolled during the second half.

    The girls fell, 3-0, during last week’s opening round of the 30th District Tournament, but the season was certainly not a disappointment.

    After winning only three games last season, the girls saw vast improvement, finishing the year with a record of 10-7-1. Anderson County went on to win the district title.

  • Lady Bears Volleyball


    The girls got a win last week at East Jessamine to improve the record to 8-13 on the season, breaking a four game losing streak. The Lady Bears were scheduled to begin 30th District Tournament action Monday night in Anderson County as they were to square off against Collins.

    The Kentucky Whitetail Youth Adventure Weekend was well attended for the youth hunt. The hunting escapade ended up with a tally of three deer for the young hunters. Officers from the 3rd District Law Enforcement (Game Warden) assisted and mentored the kids at Taylorsville Lake State Park for a day and a half hunt.

    The dramatically cooler nights of the last few weeks are a blessing for anglers. These longer, colder nights pull the residual heat from the water, signaling to game fish that it is time to fatten up on the fall harvest of baitfish born earlier in the year.

  • Bears fall to Franklin 48-35


    It was a battle of high-powered offenses Friday night in Frankfort, but Spencer County came up a bit short as Franklin County stopped the Bears’ six-game winning streak with a 48-35 win.

    The loss means this Friday’s home match-up with Shelby County will be the biggest game in the program’s history as the Bears can lay claim to their first 30th District title with a win. But it won’t be easy as they will have to erase Friday’s loss from their memory.

  • Lady Bears begin postseason


    The Spencer County Lady Bears head into district tournament play as a much improved team, largely because coach Kelsi Edelen says they’re a much closer team.

    “We started with team bonding and building relationships during the off season,” she said. “We worked out together and grew with the same mind-set. “One team – one dream is our current motto for the season.”

    The Spencer County Bears boys soccer team enters the 30th District Tournament this week knowing they can play with anyone.

    They compiled a record of 7-7-3 on the season, with six of their losses being by just one goal, including the regular season finale, a 1-0 loss at Male.

    “Those close losses aren’t frustrating when you look at the big picture,” said Coach DeWayne Mason. “We are competing and we are doing well. A few of those games were lost because of small mistakes,” he said.

    I sat in my car and listened on the radio to the thrilling conclusion of the 1987 Sweet Sixteen boys high school basketball tournament. Clay County, led by junior Richie Farmer, bested a talented Ballard team led by Alan Houston in overtime, 76-73, and for the first time in three decades, the State Title returned to the mountains.
