    JOHN SHINDLEBOWER for The Spencer Magnet

    Always a faithful staple at Friday night games, the Spencer County High School cheerleaders energize the crowd and cheer the Bears to victory. In this photograph, an unnamed flyer returns to the safety of her teammate’s arms after performing an acrobatic maneuver.

The boys lost 1-0 and then saw their season come to a close on Monday night with a 3-0 loss to North Oldham in the 16th District Tournament. The boys finished the season with a 5-11 record. This years’ seniors included Chad Walston, Jewell, Michael McCarthy and Tyler Greenwell, who were all honored in half-time ceremonies last Wednesday.

    The Spencer County Lady Bears Volleyball extended their season Monday night with an opening round win over Bullitt Central in the 27th District Tournament.

    The girls scored a 2-0 match advantage in beating Central 25-9 and 25-18. The girls advanced to take on Bullitt East in the District Championship on Tuesday evening.

  • Volleyball 2009 was a season of...

    The 2009 Spencer County High School Varsity Volleyball is on the move.  The 2009 Lady Bears season started in early June with grueling conditioning and camp.  Immediately following tryouts were the Bluegrass state games where many coaches took notice of the hustle and quick attacking Lady Bears.

  • Bears botch last-minute win

    Last football season, down 21-17 with just over a minute left, Spencer County went 98 yards on a pass play –after a near safety just a play before – and then scored on a 1-yard run to beat Western Hills.

    Friday night, Bears quarterback Erico Smith connected with Brian Harris for a 19-yard touchdown with 3:50 left in the game, and it looked like Spencer County was going to come back on the Wolverines yet again.

     But this time, the Bears only tied the game at 21 and the Wolverines had plenty of time to make up for last year’s mistake.

  • COLUMN: UK football clanks in...

    The clanking sound UK fans are hearing at the tailgate isn’t a Halloween goblin dragging a chain, its a trap door swinging open on your bowl bid hoops, uh hopes, and the doors swinging open to a stampede at Rupp Arena.

    UK football players still don’t understand climbing the SEC ladder demands touchdown passes caught, kick coverage done right, and realizing what makes yellow flags fly.

    Reality. At Kentucky in mid-October when leaves turn golden, the football team had better have four wins before the ball turns round.

  • Cross county

    The Greater Louisville Classic Cross Country Invitational was held at Tom Sawyer Park on Saturday, October 3.  After the college races were run, the SCHS varsity teams took to the trails along with hundreds of other athletes from over fifty different teams.  Several top teams from Kentucky as well as neighboring states were in attendance.

  • Indians rally for 14-13 victory...

    Entering the fourth quarter, Spencer County appeared to be headed for their fourth victory of the season as they led 5A Montgomery County 13-0. However, things began to unravel for the Bears in the final frame as they give up two quick scores and let the Indians escape with a  14-13 win on Homecoming Night.

    “It’s a perfect illustration of how quickly the outcome of the game can change no matter how well you played the first three quarters of the game,” said Bears Coach Wes Napper, whose team fell to 3-3 on the year.

  • Boys Soccer postseason set

     The Spencer County Boys soccer season will continue into the district playoffs when they take on North Oldham at South Oldham on Monday, October 12.

    The Bears stand at 5-8-1 on the season after splitting two games on Saturday in Carroll County. The boys dropped their first game to Evangel Christian, 5-2 and then bounced back with a victory over Henry County, 6-2.

    Spencer County was back in action Tuesday night when they were to travel to Bardstown and will celebrate Senior Night with their final home game on Wednesday against Holy Cross.
