  • 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.

  • Randall Cobb and Charlie Strong...

    “One thing Coach (Randy) Sanders always talks about is making memories,” Randall Cobb said last week. “I have made many with my teammates, coaches, administration, and fans that I will never forget.”

    Ah, the college experience.

    Probably Cobb made a diary notation also for Saturday January 15, 2011.

  • COLUMN: Bears will learn a lot...

    With only about four weeks left in the regular season, the Spencer County Bears are about to embark on the stretch of their season that may signal whether they are really contenders, or just pretenders.

    As of Monday, they shared the top spot in the 8th region with Collins, with both the Bears and Titans sporting 13-4 records. Those two teams were to play Tuesday night in Shelbyville with the winner likely to get the top seed in the 30th district tournament next month.

  • Bears have no problem with St....

    If the Spencer County Bears were looking for a good tune-up on Saturday before heading into a tough stretch in their schedule, they may have been disappointed when they squared off against a very over-matched St. Francis team.

    However, that’s about the only disappointment in a game that saw the Bears roll to an embarrassingly easy 98-18 victory.
    St. Francis actually won the opening tip and appeared to have scored the game’s first basket, but those points were waved off because the St. Francis bench had called a timeout right before the shot.

    Joe Willie Goodlett, 8, of Taylorsville, shot his first deer on New Year's Day with a 223 rifle at 75 yards.

  • 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.
