  • Lyons honored as one of SEC...

    Try telling a high school student that hard work and perseverance can get them over just about any obstacle in life and your message may or may not get through. Show them a living example of that principle and the chances of your message resonating will improve.

    Students at Spencer County High School have such an example in Principal Jocelyn Mills Lyons, who refused to allow a hearing deficiency to keep her from excelling academically or athletically.

  • From nowhere to New Orleans,...

    From nowhere last year to New Orleans this week; From the outer reaches (NIT) to core group (NCAA No. 1 seed), that’s Kentucky. The Wildcats earned the school’s 50th trip to the Dance this week and Big Blue Nation expects them to be dancing to Syracuse on the way to Indianapolis. Anything short of Indy will be like a visit from Santa Claus with an empty sack.

    Meanwhile, Louisville will hope for a waltz against California to earn a fox trot with Duke in Jacksonville. And, in a no respect for fan bases, Murray State dances with Vandy in San Jose, California.

  • Perfect storm hoops weekend

    Perfect Storm weekend in the Commonwealth last week? Close.

    - Murray State was Kentucky’s first team to qualify for the Big Dance. OVC coach of the year Billy Kennedy’s Racers are also the state’s winningest at 30-4.

    – Surging Western Kentucky clinched a sixth-in-a-row 20-win season, led Sun Belt in attendance again, and, at this writing, still a Big Dance candidate.

  • High expectations for next year...

    Barmore said Bears must prepare now for next season

    It was hard for fans of the Spencer County Bears not to think ahead this season. Sure, there was plenty to celebrate during the just completed 15-9 run, which was a vast improvement over the six-win season from a year ago. But the end of the season loss to Anderson County in the district tournament now seems like it was just the unofficial tip-off to what could potentially be an historic season for Spencer County basketball next year.

  • State parks' 5K series...

    Though wintry weather continues to shake Kentucky, it won’t be long before runners and walkers kick off the chill and head for an outside track.  Now’s the time to reserve your spot to test your mettle surrounded by the beautiful green landscapes of each location for the annual Kentucky State Parks’ race series held on four Saturdays, April through July. 

    The 2010 schedule includes 5K competitions at four different parks, each with individual scenic and terrain personalities.

  • Cox rides roller coaster season...

    In just his second year as a head coach, Spencer County’s Daniel Cox has already experienced some extreme highs and lows.

    Last year, Cox took over a Lady Bears’ program that had bowed out of postseason without a win for nearly a decade, and led them to an emotional win in the 30th District Tournament over Shelby County, advancing to the 8th Region Tournament.

  • Anderson delivers agony for Bears

    There are few guarantees in sports, but one thing is about as certain as it gets – when Spencer County and Anderson County square off for a boys basketball game, no one is leaving the gym until the final buzzer.
