  • 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.

  • Girls’ long season...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears saw a long season come to an end Wednesday night in Shelby County as they bowed out of the 30th District Tournament with a 65-38 loss to Shelby County.

    Decided underdogs coming in, the Lady Bears got on the scoreboard first when MacKenzie Smith drained a three-pointer in the game’s first minute for a quick 3-0 lead. However, Shelby County answered with a three-pointer of their own on their way to running off 15 straight points to establish a big lead that they would never relinquish.

  • Only in America is craziness in...

    March. Synonym for Craziness without threat of jail time. Sort of. Basketball fans are cut some slack to whoop it up this month long as nobody burns a mattress, turns over a police car or DUI.

    A month of mud and screwball weather outdoors, with bracketology surprises and upset promise inside as arenas across America crank up to host Big Dance.

    America. I love this place.

  • SCES wins first at nationals

    The Spencer County Elementary School Dance Team took first place in their division at the Jamfest Super National Champion competition Feb. 14 in Cincinnati. The team received a banner and a trophy and each girl was awarded a jacket. This will make the dance team’s fifth consecutive first place trophy. Their most recent competition was in Sevierville, Tenn. Feb. 27.

  • SCHS weight team surpasses...

    The Spencer County High School Weight Team competed in the Fern Creek “Rumble in the Jungle” weight meet on February 27.

    The team finished in eighth place out of sixteen teams. Although this was not one of the better team performances in recent meets, several individuals increased their maxes and achieved personal goals.

  • Dozen shots for Patterson (at...

    The John Wall craze has become, well, insane. Distorted too.

    At Vanderbilt last week, John Calipari’s team had nine assists, one by his point guard in 38 minutes. Patrick Patterson? 12 attempts. A dozen shots from the team’s All-American is courting disaster.

    At game’s end, Wall’s lone spectacular play was enough to overshadow a mediocre, even selfish performance, and drive some media back to John Wall Ga-Ga Land.

  • Bears prep for district tourney

    With the 30th District Tournament beginning tonight in Shelby County, the Spencer County Bears needed a good outing to take away the bitterness of the last few weeks. They got just that Saturday night when they traveled to Louisville and put together a 77-60 win over Holy Cross. Not only was it a needed win, but it was best game the Bears had played in nearly a month and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

  • Lady Bears drop final home game

     The Spencer County Lady Bears said goodbye to a couple of seniors Wednesday night but were not able to secure a victory as they fell to Trimble County, 47-36.

    Jayme Thomas and Elizabeth Whitely were honored prior to the tip-off of the varsity match-up and they will end their high-school careers in the 30th District Tournament opening round game against Shelby County tonight at 6 p.m.

    However, they had one last chance for a victory at home in a season that’s been short on wins.
