  • Bears claw out close wins

     

    Spencer County senior guard Daniel Wheeler’s old-fashioned three point play with nine seconds remaining gave the Bears their first lead of the night, and it held up as they eeked out a 64-63 win over Kentucky Country Day in their season opener Tuesday night at home.

    It was the beginning of a week that saw the Bears win two out of three, with the two wins being by a combined three points. That signals a reversal of fortunes for the Bears, who last year were frustrated by a series of close losses.

    The Spencer County Lady Bears didn’t bring their A-game, but the referees certainly brought their whistles Saturday night as they fell to a 3-0 Taylor County Lady Cardinal team 62-50, in a matchup that saw 60 fouls.

    Things started pretty well for the girls in the first quarter, with junior Lauren Lambdin hitting two three-pointers and sophomore Alyssa Howie draining another to give the Lady Bears an 11-7 lead. However, Taylor County would fight back to trail by just one at the first break.

  • SCHS player, coach honored

     

    Spencer County Senior running back Branden Leff was named the 4A District 4 player of the year during the 4A State Championship game Sunday at Western Kentucky University.

    One by one, the photographs appear on the display screen in the darkened Commission Room at Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources headquarters, and the people gathered around the conference table discuss the merits of each image before the group reaches a consensus.

  • 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.

  • 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.”

  • 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.
