  • Lady Bears continue to struggle

    The Spencer County Lady Bears dropped two games this past week but will have a chance to get back on the winning track this week on the road.

    The girls dropped a 45-41 decision to North Oldham at home Wednesday evening thanks to a poor third quarter.

    The girls led 16-13 at halftime and looked like they may be poised for a mild upset of the Lady Mustangs before the visitors came out in the second half and outscored the Lady Bears 16-6 in the quarter, to take an eight-point lead into the final frame.

  • Bears pull away from Mustangs

    The Spencer County Bears improved to 17-5 on the season with a 64-58 victory over 8th region foe North Oldham Saturday evening in Taylorsville.

    The Bears used good free throw shooting down the stretch to pull away from the Mustangs and improve to 6-0 against regional competition as they gear up for the final two weeks of the regular season.

    High School basketball used to be huge in Kentucky. It still is in some corners, but it seems the only way to fill up a high school gymnasium these days is to lure some big-name college recruits and bank on fans of a prospect’s future college buying up the tickets.

  • Bears finish tough stretch 3-1,...

    The Spencer County Bears just finished a four-game stretch that could have exposed them as pretenders. However, posing a 3-1 record in those games signals they’ll be a team to take seriously as the postseason looms less than three weeks away.

    The Bears started the stretch with a convincing 67-51 win over Collins two weeks ago, but then snow marred the rest of that week’s schedule. This past week, the Bears got back into action and it started with a road trip to Lawrenceburg.


  • Lady Bears snag close win

    The Spencer County Lady Bears got back on the winning track Saturday afternoon, edging the Lady Patriots of Allen County-Scottsville 41-39.

    It was a close game throughout and the Bears retook a two-point lead midway through the third quarter when McKenna Pfeiffer converted an old-fashioned three point play and then followed it up a minute later with two free throws to put her team up 27-25.

  • As season continues, Bears...

    Spencer County’s 67-51 win over Collins last week was big for a number of reasons. It was the first ever match-up between the Bears and the new school, it was a big district win and put the Bears in the driver’s seat for the top seed in the district tournament next month.

  • Lady Bears battle Oldham

    The Spencer County Lady Bears jumped out to a quick start against Oldham County and played their 8th Region foes close throughout before falling 61-55 at home.

    The Lady Bears used a very strong first quarter to build a seven-point lead and held a 19-12 advantage after the first quarter. However, the Lady Colonels stormed back in the second quarter, erasing that lead and went into the halftime break with a 31-30 lead.

  • Bears take down Titans, 67-51

    The Spencer County Bears faced a hostile crowd, the pressure of growing expectations, and a team that sported an identical 13-4 record as their own when they faced Martha Layne Collins High School in Shelbyville last Tuesday.

    When the final buzzer sounded, the Bears had earned a convincing 67-51 victory, sole possession of first place in the region and even more confidence as the season begins to wind down to postseason play in a few weeks.

  • Bears in action Sunday at...

    Spencer County’s game against Bullitt East has been rescheduled for Sunday, Jan. 30 at 4 p.m. as part of a double-header that is expected to attract several Division I coaches, scouts and plenty of media.
