  • Bears topple Titans, 35-14


    The rain fell most of the night, but lighting didn’t strike for the Spencer County Bears until late in the fourth quarter, when they scored three touchdowns in less than two minutes to pull away from Collins, 35-14, for the sixth consecutive victory.

  • Let the kids enjoy this moment


    Last Wednesday afternoon, a row of television cameras and reporters lined the side of Spencer County High School’s football field as media from Louisville made the short trip out to Taylorsville to report on the surprising Bears football team.

    It wasn’t quite the media circus football players experience in the two weeks before the Super Bowl, but for Spencer County, it had to feel pretty close.

  • Bears crush Cougars 77-43


    The Spencer County Bears broke the will of their opponents, broke the scoreboard, and nearly broke a state rushing record Friday night in a 77-43 victory at Bullitt Central that moved the Bears to 5-0 on the season.

    It was a night players, coaches and fans will not soon forget as Spencer County racked up 738 yards on the ground as they outpaced the Cougars, who also entered the game with a perfect 4-0 record.

  • Young soccer team showing...


    The Spencer County boys’ soccer team have not eclipsed five wins in a season since 2010, when they finished with an 8-10 record.

    There’s an excellent chance they’ll exceed that this year as they notched their fifth win of the season on Saturday with a 3-2 win over Bullitt Central Saturday at the King of the Bluegrass Cup at Fairdale.

    Sophomores J.J. Dickerson and Nathan Seales scored goals, as did freshmen Alec Coomes as the Bears opened up play in the weekend event. Jacob Nichols recorded an assist in the contest.

  • Lady Bears Soccer...


    The girls snapped a four game losing streak last week with a 7-0 shutout against LaRue County at home. That followed a tough 2-1 loss to Shelby County earlier last week. The girls are 2-10 on the season. This week, the girls were scheduled to travel to Simon Kenton on Monday, and will host Bethlehem on Wednesday evening.

  • Volleyball...


    After starting the season 0-5, the Lady Bears have won five of their last seven contests. They took a set win over Bardstown 2-1 (25-20, 18-25, 26-24) and then this past weekend, won their division of the Anderson County Smash Tournament, taking three of four, with wins over Green County, Louisville Valley and Boyle County. Their lone loss was to Bardstown. The girls were to be back in action Tuesday night at Shelby County, and on Thursday at Bullitt Central.

  • Big time high school football...

    Halfway through the regular season, the Spencer County Bears are likely the most surprising high school football team in the state of Kentucky. They’re the highest scoring squad in the Commonwealth, averaging just over 52 points a game. They lead the state in rushing and last week, gained 738 yards on the ground, the second most ever by a Kentucky high school team, and 7th best nationally.
