  • Boys soccer split in weekend...

    The Spencer County boys soccer team split two games in the Two Rivers Tournament in Carroll County over the weekend, dropping district foe Henry County 3-0 before losing to host Carroll County 1-0 later in the day.

  • UK, UofL are both winners

    Kentucky began its 120th football season with a coin toss surprise, solid first 30 minutes, a handsome victory, then bussed down I-64 with a fistful of reasons for optimism.

    Louisville began its Charlie Strong era behind an 8-Ball unnecessarily.

    Earth-to-Tom Jurich: Successful director of athletics at Alabama did not open the season against Auburn, nor did Georgia start its schedule with Georgia Tech.

    What Kentucky’s 23-16 win at Louisville means.

  • More Lady Bear wins

    The Spencer County girls’ soccer team is off to a promising start, sporting a 4-2 record, a couple of shutouts and even in their losses, giving top-notch competition some tough games.

    Last week, the girls won both of their games, including a 5-1 victory over Pleasure Ridge Park at home on Wednesday in a contest that SCHS Coach Charlie Traughber said wasn’t a thing of beauty.

  • Victory over J-town

    The Spencer County boys picked up their first win of the season Monday night with a 8-2 victory over Jeffersontown.

    Coach Paul Taylor said his team returned to their four defender, 5 midfielder and one striker strategy and was able to take a quick 2-0 lead after goals from Thibault Golliard and Brandon Taylor.

    Jeffersontown tied it up with two goals of their own, but freshman Cody Coomes answered with another goal for the Bears who took a 3-2 lead into halftime. Taylor said he stressed better defense in the second half, and his squad responded.

  • Bruins best the Bears

    Late night matchup ends 38-12

    It was a long night for the Spencer County Bears Friday as they traveled to Elizabethtown and played into Saturday during a 38-12 loss to Central Hardin in game two of the Kentucky National Guard Bowl.

    Having to wait for the end of the first game between DeSales and Etown pushed the start of the Bears and Bruins to about 9:45 and didn’t finish until well after midnight.

  • Stallion teams win season opener

    All four Spencer County Youth Football Association teams won their first games of the season August 21 against the Nelson County Football Association.

    Junior blue team,  coached by Chris Hutt, won 39-6 at home against the Nelson County Colts.

    Pee Wee blue team, coached by Stan Shivers, won 19-7 away against the Nelson County Bears.

    Junior white team, coached by Floyd Light, won 14-0 away against the Nelson County Titans.

    Pee Wee white team, coached by Phillip Bradhamc won 19-14 at home against the Nelson County Colts.

  • 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.

  • SC Youth Baseball Association...

    Spencer County Youth Baseball Association meetings are always scheduled for the first Sunday of each month at 2 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at Ray Jewell Park.  All parents with children participating in the baseball and softball leagues are members of the association and encouraged to attend board meetings.

    Other dates to remember:

    September 12 - Second Sunday due to holiday weekend. Begin discussion on plans for next season.

    October 3 - Nominations for 2011 board will take place.

  • 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.

    Despite a 2-13 record on the year, the girls have been competitive in most of their matches, and last week’s road loss at Bullitt East was no exception.

    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.
