  • Lady Bears keep Eagles from...

    It’s always a relief to end a losing streak, and that’s the feeling the Lady Bears experienced Friday night when they were able to best the Lady Eagles of Fort Knox 40-29 to notch their first win of the season.

    The girls used an 8-0 run late in the first half and into the second half to build a 10 point lead and were able to hold on for the victory.

  • Secret weapon: Erico Smith helps...

    Erico Smith had little trouble getting to the goal-line this year for the Spencer County football team, and the junior who had been away from basketball for a couple of years has demonstrated a similar knack for getting to the basket early on this season.

  • Nations Baseball: coming to a...

    Nations Baseball is planning a youth tournament in June that will span diamonds across Spencer County.

    The 2010 Nations Baseball Kentucky Co-State Tournament will be held in Spencer County June 11-13. A coinciding tournament will be held the same weekend near Covington.

    Chuck Fisher, state director of Home Plate Sports and representative of Nations Baseball, estimated that the tournament would generate over $40,000 in revenue for local businesses. About 40 teams are expected to utilize various fields across the county at schools and public parks.

  • Bob Knight 'plays the fool...

    In life, each of us must sometimes play the fool.

     - Yiddish Proverb

    Thank you, Bob Knight.

    Indiana’s ex-coach was in Indianapolis last week at a fund raiser for the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame. It was also Knight’s night to ... play the fool. (wink)

    As always, when The General speaks, we listen and think and form opinions on his opinions, whether we agree or not (he doesn’t care). We are seldom disappointed.

  • Lady Bears fall to Anderson...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears dropped a 73-35 decision to a tough Anderson County team Saturday afternoon at the middle school.

    Facing what will surely be one of the favorites to reach Bowling Green from the region, the Lady Bears fell behind early and never were able to seriously challenge the visiting Bearcats.

    The visitors used their superior size inside to score easy baskets and the cause was not helped when senior Chelsea Gross went down with an injury and couldn’t play for most of the second half.

  • SCHS players make All-Star team

    If you followed the Spencer County Bears on the football field this past season, Cameron Smith stood out for his exciting play and any glance at the post-game stance would have your attention drawn to David Cross, whose consistency on the defensive side was evident.

    Both of these seniors were recognized for their outstanding play recently by being selected to the Greater Louisville Coaches Association All-Star Team, which played in the annual All-Star game this past Saturday afternoon at Southern High School in Louisville.

  • Bears capture St. Francis...

    Spencer County’s impressive start to the season continued over the weekend as the Bears claimed first place in the St. Francis tournament in Louisville, winning three games over two days, the last victory being a thrilling 63-62 overtime triumph over Fort Knox in the title game Saturday night.

    The Bears and the Eagles changed leads in the first half with Spencer County clinging to a 27-26 advantage at the break, and neither team was able to pull away the rest of the way and the game went into the fourth quarter knotted up at 41 each.

  • Knocking them down 1,2,3

    The Spencer County Bears are already halfway to equaling last year’s win total, and it’s only one week into the season. The boys took their first three games of the season, starting with an impressive 68-38 thrashing of Washington County at home last Wednesday.

  • Kentucky’s win over...

    When is a hang-on win better than a blow-out? When it produces a North Carolina-Kentucky game film in December.

    Reward? Kentucky takes a No. 4 ranking and 8-0 record to Madison Square Garden against Connecticut.

    UK’s star-studded lineup reminds us of rookie season for Dan Issel, Mike Pratt and Mike Casey. A team that got off to a 9-1 start and No. 4 ranking.

    And, Win No. 2,000 in UK basketball history will happen where it should: in Rupp Arena against Drexel or Long Beach State.

    Items John Calipari will point out on game film.

  • Local players help West conquer...

    Spencer County’s Tyler Eldridge (far left), Trenton Bryant, Cody Nevitt, and Michael Fowler stand victorious on the field of Kentucky State University after helping their fellow West All-Star teammates win the 1st Annual Kentucky Middle School Football Association’s East v/s West All-State Classic in Frankfort.
