  • Lady Bears fall flat against...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears saw their modest two-game winning streak come to a crashing halt Monday night when they fell to a talented John Hardin squad, 62-23.

    The Lady Bears got off to a slow start and never were able to recover. They fell behind 6-0 and were able only to get one bucket in the first quarter as they trailed 18-2 after the first break.

  • SCHS wins a pair in busy week

    It was a busy week for the Spencer County Bears who played three games in four days, winning the first two but dropping a tough loss to visiting Campbell County Friday night.

    The Bears began the week by hosting district foe Eminence on Tuesday.
    The visiting Warriors hung tough through most of the first half after the Bears took an early lead and had a 12-6 lead after one quarter with sophomore Chris Dunbar scoring eight points in the opening frame as he dominated inside.

    For John Calipari an approval ratings bounce likes of which the most ardent Tea Party pol would sell his soul. From say, 95 to 99 percent.

  • OK to dream of Rupp Arena?

    What’s worse: setting goals too high and risking disappointment, or setting goals too low and guaranteeing mediocrity?

    It’s a question that the Spencer County Bears’ basketball team should be asking itself as both the calendar and season turns to 2011.

    Come March, 16 teams from across Kentucky will play their way to Rupp Arena to participate in the State Tournament. No team from Spencer County has ever made it to the Sweet 16, but each year there seems to be some school celebrating their debut appearance.

  • Lady Bears kick off New Year in...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears got 2011 off to a great start with a 44-27 victory over district foe Shelby County at home Monday night.

    The Lady Bears jumped out early by scoring the game’s first nine points and led 17-5 after one quarter.

    Shelby County closed the gap by scoring the first five points of the second quarter before MacKenzie Myers hit one of two free throws to push it back to 18-10. The Bears went into the halftime break with a 20-10 advantage.

  • SCHS splits in tourney action

    The Spencer County Bears completed a 2-2 swing throught the Lloyd Memorial Invitational Tournament last week but felt it should have been better.

    After an opening-round 81-64 loss to a very quick Covington Holmes squad, the Bears bounced back to win a thrilling 48-47 contest over Bishop Brossart.

    The Bears then squared off against Cooper High School and dropped a heartbreaker of a game, 51-50.
    In that game, the Bears led most of the way, but lost on a tip-in at the buzzer.

  • Looking ahead, looking behind

    "Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning, but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.” – Hal Borland, writer

    Year-ender things.

    2010 had high and low lights and a few in between.

    Never mind the latter, savor the former.

    A few of mine.

  • Record wild turkey harvest a top...

    FRANKFORT — A record wild turkey harvest, the return of the alligator gar and south-central Kentucky received two new wildlife management areas, are just some of the highlights of the past year.

    Here’s a look back at some of the top outdoors stories of 2010:

    TURKEY HARVEST

    Hunters took a record 36,094 wild turkeys during the state’s 23-day spring season, which closed May 9.

  • SCHS rebounds from first loss...

    The Spencer County Bears rebounded from their first loss of the season with a victory over Trimble County last week and will head north this week for a tough test before getting into district play after the holidays.

    The Bears suffered a tough 61-60 loss on a last-second shot against a traveling team from Australia the week before Christmas, but had a chance to get back on the winning track before the holiday break when they traveled to Bedford on Dec. 21 to take on the Raiders, a team they already handled easily earlier in the season.
