  • Governor's Cup winner? Like...

    Governor’s Cup XXIII, Kentucky at Louisville.

    History tells us, as a season opener, picking a Gov’s Cup winner is like handicapping the Kentucky Derby – everybody’s an expert and nobody has a clue.

    More experience and two marquee stars belong to Kentucky – Derrick Locke and Randall Cobb. Louisville has all new people coaching, many new (and young) faces, and home field.

    Today, (keepin’ it simple, stupid) one man climbs out on one limb ...

    1. UK defensive line will be better than Louisville’s offensive one.

  • Tough loss for SCHS volleyball

    The Spencer County Volleyball team had a relatively quiet week, playing only one match in what has been a very busy start to their season.

    Spencer County dropped the first game by a score of 25-22 and Bullitt

    East rallied to nip the Lady Bears in the second game, 25-23.

    In both games, Spencer County were able to build leads, but were not able to hold on for the victory.
