  • Adebayo loves spending time in...

    Whenever he can, Kentucky signee Bam Adebayo likes to be in the gym … and not just when he is working out or playing a game.

    “I am in the gym every day. I just love being in the gym. Even if I am just sitting there, and sometimes I do that, I love it,” said Adebayo. “I’ve always been that way.”

    Kentucky coach John Calipari has not tried to add his feelings about Adebayo, who was a double-double machine in high school.

  • Lady Bears roll to 15-3 win

     

    On the night they celebrated their seniors, it was an eighth-grader who delivered the big blow for the Spencer County Lady Bears during their 15-3 win over Thomas Nelson High School.

    Elisabeth Huckleberry smacked a line-drive grandslam homerun over the fence in left centerfield in the bottom of the second inning to put Spencer County up 6-2, and they never looked back on their way to a big victory Thursday.

  • A bowl for UK in 2016?

    After failing to get to a bowl the last two years despite having great chances to do so each year, coach Mark Stoops knows many fans are disgruntled and need to see improvements on the field to believe again in the program like they did when he first got to UK.

    He said the maturity of quarterback Drew Barker, who started games at the end of last season, is one reason to be optimistic.

  • Bears win two

     

    The Spencer County Bears went 2-1 last week, improved their overall record to 15-6 but had a six-game winning streak halted by Louisville Ballard on Thursday. They are scheduled to be home against Oldham County on Thursday and will host Carroll County on Friday.

  • Fishing state’s streams in May...

    An extended stretch of stable weather and seasonably warm temperatures in late April created optimal spring fishing conditions for anglers across Kentucky.

    The calm broke at the end of the month when rounds of storms over a period of days preceded a cold front. In their wake, rivers and streams that had been running low and clear and warmer than normal rose and cooled off a bit.

  • Bears sweep Anderson Co.

     

    Lucas Tackett hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning and then pitched five shut-out innings to pace the Bears to a 3-2 victory over Anderson County Friday afternoon.

    The game was a continuation of a contest suspended by weather Tuesday, the second game of a two-game district series with the Bearcats. Anderson County had actually taken a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning Tuesday before lightening brought the game to an end.

  • Lady Bears top Washington Co.

     

    The Spencer Co. Lady Bears improved to 17-9 on the season with a 13-5 victory over Washington County Friday, rebounding from a tough 7-5 loss to district foe Collins on Monday.

    Collins (21-7) jumped out to a 6-1 lead before the Lady Bears mounted a rally.

    “We hit it hard a few times, but right at people,” said Spencer County Coach Jimmy Schmidt. “Our girls fought hard for each other. To fight til the last out says a lot about this group.”

  • Fishing duo finish 9th, qualify...

     

    The Spencer County Bass Fishing Team competed at Lake Cumberland on Saturday, April 23, in the Region 2 Tournament.

    There were 117 boats competing for a chance to move on to the state tournament at Kentucky Lake later this month. Spencer County’s Clayton Rountree and Dillon Stallings finished ninth overall, catching five fish weighing a total 12 pounds, 10 ounces. Their five fish consisted of smallmouth, largemouth and Kentucky spotted bass.
