  • COLUMN: For teams in Kentucky,...

    For Morehead State (in), Louisville, Bellarmine, Georgetown, and at this writing, possibly Western Kentucky, drum roll, please.
    This is it! Michael Jackson crooned. Tournament time.
    Morehead will wait to see if its next foe is Kansas, Duke or Ohio State.
    The best tournament could be the Big East and UofL is a major reason why.

  • Miller leads Bears to victory...

    Last year as a freshman, Brandon Miller had both the basketball and his team’s season in his hands in the closing seconds of the Bears’ 30th District tournament against Anderson County and his team down one point. His buzzer-beating shot missed the mark, ending an otherwise successful season on a down note.

  • COLUMN: This is what is right...

    Do Americans take sports too seriously? Probably.
    It’s hard to watch the hoopla surrounding the Super Bowl, the politics behind the BCS or the madness that is March to realize that big-time sports is big business that often puts the dollar ahead of the joy of the game.

  • Lady Bears end season with loss...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears saw their season come to an end Wednesday evening when they fell to Collins in the first round of the 30th District Tournament, 52-29.

  • Bears take 30th district title,...

    The Spencer County Bears made history Saturday night by winning the 30th District Basketball Tournament with a 55-49 victory over Collins.


    It was standing room only in Spencer County's gym as the Bears pulled away in the third quarter following a 21-21 tie at halftime, to secure the school's first distirct title since 1984.

    Sophomore guard Brandon Miller paced the way with 19 points and was named the tournament MVP as the Bears continue a magical season.

  • Let's all do a little fancy...

     The Spencer County High School Dance Team had a successful “Taylor Swift” dance clinic.  The clinic had 94 student participants in this exciting event.  Each child received a t-shirt and cowboy hat.  Students performed their dance routine at the SCHS boys basketball game on Feb. 8.

  • 7U runners-up finish season

Feb. 19 with a win and a loss.  Players pictured are Colleen Foster, Conner Mattingly, Hunter Campanell, Tyler Lester, Bralen Spencer, Kolten Scott, Jose Solis, Jackson Scott and Baylin Ford.  The team was coached by Donna Lester and Jenny Banta.

  • Former high school track...

    Two former Spencer County High School track teammates met up at the DePauw University Track Invitational Feb. 19.  Jesse Shelton and Chelsey Talley, pictured above, had seen each other last in 2007 when they both ran for SCHS in the AA State Track Meet. Shelton, now a senior at Bellarmine University, finished sixth in the 55 meter dash, and Talley, a freshman at The University of The Cumberlands, finished eighth in the one mile run.

  • Home run pitch: Calipari fouls...

    Mixing metaphors ... gopher balls, basketballs and money.
    Best home run pitch question for a ball coach in February?

    My vote goes to one from a reporter to John Calipari last week. “What do you think of the officiating in the SEC?”

    Was this a Ralph Terry fast ball to Bill Mazeroski all over again?

  • Seventh grade Grizzlies finish...

The team includes Blake Lambdin, Jamie Newnam, Jacob Cole, Ethan Breeden, Jamal Downs, Jacob Derudder, Jacob Mitchell, Robert Currie, Zach Stevens, Noah Dockery and Logan Holbrook.
