  • Lady Bears fall to Anderson

     

    Coming into the season, the Spencer County Lady Bears knew that the road to success would go through Anderson County. The Lady Bearcats had won 17 straight district games and Spencer County hasn’t gotten a win against Anderson County since 2001. This could be the year that changes, but it didn’t change Saturday as the two teams squared up in a great high school matchup, with Anderson County holding on for a 53-47 victory.

  • Hard luck Bears lose late lead...

     

    The Spencer County Bears continue to see wins slip through their fingers, as they dropped two close games this past week, including a home loss Thursday night to rival Bullitt East.

    The Bears opened up hot from outside, with Jacob Seawright connecting on  two three pointers to help the Bears establish an early 6-2 lead and Spencer County held a 14-11 advantage after one quarter.

  • Bears open season with two wins...

     

    Only a heartbreaking overtime loss to Franklin County last week has prevented the Spencer County Bears from opening their season with a perfect 3-0 record.

    After a season-opening win on the road at Kentucky Country Day, the Bears ended their first week with a convincing 20 point victory over visiting Taylor County Saturday evening.

  • Girls look impressive in win

     

    The margin was 22 points, but it felt much larger Saturday night as the Spencer County Lady Bears tipped-off their season with an impressive victory over Holy Cross in Louisville.

    Spencer County demonstrated its size advantage early on, going inside early and often to take a 13-4 lead. Seniors Chelsea Stephens and Amie Conley combined for nine of the Lady Bears’ first 11 points, most of which came inside the paint.

  • Lady Bears: “This is our year”

     

    Their faces are familiar. So too, are the uniform numbers. After all, some of these girls have been suiting up for the Lady Bears basketball varsity team since they were in middle school. But they’re grown up now, with years of experience under their belt and a taste of success after last year’s 19-12 season.

    It’s no surprise then that as they begin the 2017-18 season, there’s a feeling that “this is our year.”

  • U-7 Stallions finish third in...

     

    The Spencer County Stallions U-7 team competed at the 2017 Battle in Rocky Top, a national tournament that drew over 300 teams from more than 20 states to Knoxville, Tennessee earlier this month.

    The Stallions bested a team from Milford, Ohio in their first game, then advanced to the second round, where they topped a team from Athens, TN. That put them in the semi-finals where they fell to a squad from West Virginia. Still their performance was good enough for a third place finish nationally, according to their coach, Michael Payne.

  • Experts anticipate good...

     

    The outlook for the upcoming waterfowl hunting seasons looks as promising as any seasons in recent memory.

    “It is shaping up to be a phenomenal year,” said John Brunjes, migratory bird coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “We are still at all-time highs for duck numbers with as many breeding ducks as we’ve ever had. It’s been that way for a couple of years now.”

  • Gun season for deer begins

     

    A burst of fall colors, frosty mornings and an uptick in deer activity recently are encouraging and telling signs for hunters.

    The season that contributes the greatest percentage of Kentucky’s annual deer harvest and fills many freezers with protein-rich venison is almost here.

    Modern gun deer season began statewide Nov. 11, 2017.
