  • Grizzlies are conference champs
  • COLUMN: Kentucky sore about 4-...

    Hand-wringing Kentucky fans should take pause from “we got hosed again!” and consider the short guy at Morehead.
    Coach Don Tindall lobbied for more respect, a higher seed for his OVC champion Eagles. Recalling “be careful what you wish for,” he got the latter. A 13-seed and all but certain one and done, Morehead faces the team nobody wants to play this week, the Louisville Cardinals.

  • Wrestlers finish among top at...

    Pictured are Spencer County Elementary School students Colton Price, left, and Seth Thompson.  Both are on the Fern Creek Youth Wrestling Team and wrestled at the state tournament last weekend at the Frankfort Civic Center.

  • Middle school cheerleaders enjoy...

    The Spencer County Middle School cheerleaders had an exciting season that ended Jan. 29.

  • Dance team places first at state

  • WHAT A CATCH!

    Spencer County fisherman Brian Raisor recently caught this huge Asian carp at Taylorsville Lake. Much to Raisor’s surprise, a lamprey — an eel-like species — was attached to the fish. According to Raisor’s mother, Mary Raisor, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife sent the lamprey on to Campbellsville University for further study. Neither species is a lake native and the KDFW is investigating further.

  • 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.
