    “Here they come to me!”

    Expression for the ages, one that transcends the sport of kings, coined by Cawood Ledford. The Hall of Fame announcer’s stirring report when thoroughbreds turned for home on a sunny day at Churchill Downs.

    This week, here they come to you. Full-on-Autumn, horse racing, college football and reminder that in Kentucky the sport of kings gives way to sport of princes – basketball is at the door too.

    • Keeneland. Fall meet is October 8-30 and includes 18 stakes races, 10 this weekend.

  • Grizzlies win conference title

    Last Friday night, under the lights of the high school, the Spencer County Middle School football team completed their sweep of winning the MKAC regular season title and the conference tournament title by beating the Bardstown Middle School Tigers 22-6.

    A fired up Grizzly offense took the open kickoff and drove right down the field and scored on a short run by Trenton Calvert to make it 6-0. Each team’s defenses then forced turnovers and stoppage on downs.

  • SCHS to host district games

    The Spencer County boys soccer team is gearing up for the postseason and have compiled a very competitive 7-9 record heading into their final week of regular season play.

    The Bears took a 4-0 victory over a Louisville Southern team that had been on a bit of a winning streak, winning four of their last six.

    However, Spencer County was able to jump out early on two goals by Tyler Fleig, one on a corner kick that was helped by a stiff wind. The Bears held on to a 2-0 lead to the break.

  • SCHS improves to 6-8 with win...

    The Spencer County Bears got a lot of playing time for some younger players Friday during an 8-4 win over Evangel Christian at home.

    The Bears jumped out early when Thibaut Golliard scored on an assist by Cody Coomes, who would score a second goal for the Bears shortly after.

    Later in the first half, Tyler Fleig’s kick went across the front of the goal and Todd Clemens crashed the goal, putting the ball in the next for a 3-0 lead.

    Coach Paul Taylor said he then used the opportunity to put in the freshmen for the last 20 minutes of the half.

  • Team melding at right time

    It’s a coach’s dream to have a team begin to gel at just the right time, and for Spencer County High School Volleyball Coach Tim Elder, that dream is coming true.

    The girls have won three straight matches and have used the lessons learned in a long and sometimes demanding season to put together their best stretch of volleyball just as the regular season is winding down.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Title talk no...

    I’ve been watching Spencer County High School sports here for nearly a decade, as both a parent and and a reporter. No doubt there have been a lot of rough stretches as our teams have almost always competed hard, but often came up short on the scoreboard. Things might be changing.

    Spencer Countian Tabitha Martin’s Javanon soccer team won the U11 Girls Division of the Mockingbird Invitational Tournament last weekend.  The final game went into overtime.  The team also were finalists in the Mead Cup Tournament played over Labor Day weekend in Dayton.

  • Sending signals to regional foes

    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer program is making some noise this season but they won’t be content until they make their mark.

    That mark may come in the form of records, as in the number of wins in a season, scoring 100 goals in the regular season, or advancing in the playoffs. But the biggest accomplishment has already been achieved, and that’s sending a message to the rest of the 8th region that Spencer County is ready to join the ranks of the elite.
