    Fred Cowgill, sports director at the Louisville station, was on hand last Thursday morning to present the trophy before a packed gymnasium full of students and faculty. He was impressed by the enthusiasm in the school.

    “We were looking for a program that needed a little exposure and love, and I think we found it,” said Cowgill as he greeted the students.

    When I moved to Spencer County in 2003, it was just a few months before the high school began its football program. I can probably count on one hand the number of games I’ve missed over the past 13 seasons, and it’s truly been enjoyable watching the program develop.

    The Spencer County Bears scored 35 unanswered points in the second half as they trounced Nelson County 55-26 Friday night to open the season at 2-0.

    Coach Whitney Reno is excited about her first varsity coaching job, mostly fueled by the talent and enthusiasm she sees on the court with the Lady Bears Volleyball team.

    She’s not new to many of the girls, having coached the freshman squad last year, and serving as coach at the middle school the past two seasons. She played volleyball at Woodford County High School, and played in numerous intramural leagues while a student at Western Kentucky University.

  • GIRLS SOCCER - New coach helps...


    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer program has seen success over the past several years, including a district title in 2013 and qualifying for the regional tournament two of the last three years.

    However, graduation took its toll on the program two years ago and the girls endured a 6-12 season last year.

    New faces on the field and the sideline could signal a new beginning for the team as first-year head coach Kelsi Shipley tries to lead a young squad with twelve underclassmen back to the top.
