  • Softball Grizzlies off to a...

    It’s hard to imagine a better start to a season, much less a better start for a brand new program. But after Monday night’s 18-0 shutout of Bardstown, the Spencer County Middle School softball team stands a perfect 2-0 in its first season.

    They opened up their season with a 14-0 victory over Bernheim at Waterford Park. Two wins, 32 runs scored, no runs allowed and pitchers Christen Housley and Kelly Wheeler have combined for eight innings of no-hit ball.

  • Learning from the pros

    Spencer County Youth Football Association (SCYFA) players had the opportunity to learn from the pros while attending the KJ Fundamental Football Clinic last month.

    Keith “KJ” Joseph and his staff share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the game with dozens of boys ages 5 to 13. The young players not only learned about fundamentals of the game, but also participated special team sessions for running backs, receivers, linemen and defensive backs.

  • 24-10 crusher

    The Spencer County Bears baseball team put up numbers like a football team Saturday when they traveled to Trimble County and delivered a 24-10 crushing to the Raiders. The victory stopped a two-game skid and improved the Bears to 5-11 on the season.

    After returning from a spring break trip to Ft. Walton Beach that saw the Bears go 1-3, Spencer County continued to struggle last week.

  • High five

    In a time of Tea Party fever, one-and-dones, Derby handicapping experts and more show-me-the-money, Sport stepped into the breech last week. Gave us a high-five (and half) heart string highlights.

    1. No. 42. Across Major League Baseball every player on every team wore No. 42, honoring Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson.

    2. Lefty. At the Masters, champion Phil Mickelson and wife Amy touched our hearts with a nationally televised hug taking attention away from media’s latest kick-that-dog-again!, Tiger Woods.

  • Power-lifting champ

    Cody Jaggers competed at The NASA High School Power Lifting National Championship in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on March 27-28.

    Jaggers competed in several 148 lb. weight class events and finished 4th overall in the nation in his weight class. Jaggers also finished 3rd in the power press competition and 2nd in the power sports competition.

    Jaggers was recently part of the Kentucky All-Star team that finished 2nd in the nation. The team consisted of two lifters each from Fort Knox and Green County and Cody from Spencer County.

  • Turkey season opens April 17

    Kentucky’s general spring season for wild turkeys opens Saturday. Some 90,000 hunters are expected to turkey hunt this spring. The number of 2-year-old gobblers is at record levels, and biologists predict a good season this year. During the recently concluded youth-only turkey weekend, April 3-4, hunters took more than 1,800 gobblers.

    Complete details of all current hunting regulations are listed in the spring hunting guide, available wherever hunting licenses are sold or online at fw.ky.gov.

    Some basics that hunters need to know before going afield include:

  • Justice dazzles UofL fans

    Weekend all-star game gems bring sparkle to basketball fans along I-64.

    Louisville. Elisha Justice gave Cardinal fans an eyeful in the Derby Festival all-star game. Mr. Basketball dazzled with numbers: dozen points, five rebounds, five assists and four steals, and determination. Walk-on? No, a steal.

  • Duke, Butler championship game...

    Monday night’s NCAA Championship proves there is hope for a great sport.

    For the past year or so, I’ve kind of soured on college basketball. Not on the game itself really, but the false notions that schools must embrace so-called necessary evils in order to reach the highest levels.

  • Weight team takes 6th at Grant...

    The SCHS weight team competed on March 20th at the Grant County Invitational. The weight lifting competition consisted of the bench press, squat, and power clean. The team finished 6th overall, just missing a team trophy by 3 points.
