  • Bears Soccer


    The Spencer County Bears soccer team picked up their fourth win of the season with a 4-3 victory over Nelson County last week.

    The boys are 4-5-1 on the season and will face district foe Shelby County on Tuesday in Shelbyville, and will travel to Bullitt East on Thursday evening. This weekend, they will play Muhlenberg County, Bullitt Central and Bardstown at the King of the Bluegrass Cup at Fairdale High School.

  • Bears charge over Bullitt East


    Another week, another win for the Spencer County Bears football team, as they made the short drive to Mt. Washington Friday and took care of traditional rival Bullitt East, 43-21 to improve to 4-0 on the season.

    It was not a game without hiccups, however, as the Bears coughed up a couple of turnovers and gave up two late scores, but Coach Mike Marksbury’s team remains perfect on the season and could even move up in the rankings. Last week, they were ranked 4th in class 4A among 41 teams in Kentucky, and ranked 19th overall, out of 221 schools.

  • Undefeated Bears roll again


    In past seasons, Spencer County Bears’ Football Coach Mike Marksbury said his team hasn’t handled success well. They seem to have learned from their mistakes as they now sport a perfect 3-0 record following a 40-8 thrashing of region foe East Jessamine Friday night.

  • Lady Bears Volleyball


    The Spencer County Lady Bears Volleyball team dropped their match with Bullitt East in Mt. Washington last Tuesday night, despite a good effort to keep it close for a while. The girls dropped the first game 25-13, but played better in the second game, only to let a tie game get away late, losing 25-19. In the third and final game, the girls got behind early, but rallied to make it respectable, before falling 25-17. The girls are still looking for their first win of the season, and were to host Bullitt Central on Tuesday, and will host Collins on Thursday night.

  • Runners finish well at Cross...

    The Spencer County Cross Country Team competed in the Raider Twilight Run last week. The runners had top 15 finishes.

  • Bears in the spotlight...


    Excitement is brewing at Spencer County High School as the football team is 3-0 to start the season, earning them recognition as WKLY-TV’s School of the Week.

    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.

  • Holbrook a fitting leader for...

    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.

  • Bears ground Cardinals 55-26


    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.

    Tied at 20-20 at the half, the Bears made some defensive adjustments at halftime that put the clamps on the Cardinals, while on offense, the Bears’ three back rushing attack ate up yards and lit up the scoreboard in the second half.
