  • 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.

    The girls lost the first game of the set 20-25, but bounced back and won the final two games by the identical 25-20 score to win the match. The girls would lose to Collins later in the week. The volleyball team is 1-6 on the season and will host Bardstown on Thursday night and will travel to Anderson County for a tournament on Saturday.

  • Girls’ soccer


    The Spencer County girls plan to recover from their 8-2 loss last week when they travel to Shelby County on Monday and will host LaRue County on Wednesday.
