  • Lady Bears end season with loss...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer season came to an end the same way it started, with a loss to Oldham County.

  • COLUMN: Fans make Big Blue...

    Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness was all that again ... with a hiccup or two.
    By their standing-room-only presence in Rupp Arena on a night in the middle of football season, Wildcat basketball fans renewed their all-out allegiance to all-things-Calipari.
    It was a spectacle. Never mind slide-show foul-ups.

  • Runners finish well at Bardstown...

    The Spencer County cross country team finished strong at the Bardstown Invitational over the weekend.

    In the sixth grade and under category, Jack Meredith finished in first place and teammate Drake Snider finished in second. Both are sixth graders. In the girls middle school division, seventh-grader Maddie Cook finished in first place. In the varsity races, senior Christina Shawver came in second place in the girls 5,000 meter, and freshman Jacob Johnson finished 19th in the boys 5K.

    Spencer County’s Briana Bonham sent the ball downfield during the Lady Bear’s 7-1 victory over North Bullitt last Thursday.

    Spencer County senior Tori Palmer recorded three goals in the first half to pace the Lady Bears to their 11th win of the season. The girls were scheduled to travel to Shelby County Monday night to face Collins in the first round of the district tournament.

  • COLUMN: Kentucky football needs...

    The Southeastern Conference is better than ever at the top – LSU and Alabama, 1-2 in America; solid in the middle – South Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida and Auburn; and poised to break out – Tennessee and Mississippi State, even Vanderbilt. At the bottom, Kentucky has been awful.
    Unvarnished truths at midseason.
    Kentucky’s record is 2-4, but seems worse. Two touchdowns scored in last 12 quarters of football while surrendering 48, 35 and 54 points is unacceptable and ruinous.

  • SCSA brings back trophies from...

    The Spencer County Soccer Association is growing, producing great soccer players, promoting the love of the game, and bringing home championship trophies.

  • COLUMN: UK coach needs to show...

    Coach John Calipari has energized Kentucky fans in his short tenure so far with his high-tempo style of play on the court and his high-stakes marketing of Kentucky basketball off it.
    Even though I question the methods, which include going after student-athletes (cough) who simply want to use UK as a one-year audition for the NBA, it’s hard to argue with the success on the floor he’s had. Last year’s Final Four appearance only cemented his legendary status among most UK fans.

  • PHOTO: Kicking cancer

    The Spencer County boys soccer team applied some pink tape to their socks and shoes prior to their game against Christian Academy of Louisville on Thursday night in honor of cancer awareness efforts across the country.

    The boys finished their regular season on an uptick, winning two of their last three games, including a 3-2 victory at Bardstown last week and a 5-1 victory over Owen County Saturday afternoon at home. The boys were scheduled to travel to Oldham County to tackle South Oldham in the opening round of the 16th District tournament Monday night.

  • Bears win big at homecoming

    The Spencer County Bears used a bruising running attack to tame the Waggener Wildcats on Saturday night during a 33-7 victory as they celebrated homecoming.

    The Bears rushed for 364 yards on the night as they controlled the line of scrimmage and the possession game on the way to their second consecutive victory while improving to 3-5 on the year.
