  • BLUE vs. WHITE: Girls basketball...

    Progress isn’t always measured by speed, but by direction. The Spencer County Lady Bears have made huge strides in recent years, culminating last season in a trip to the 8th Region tournament.

    While there are some experienced players returning, the team will have to find a way to make up for the loss of Kenisha Marshall, who graduated last year as one of the program’s most prolific scorers and rebounders. Head Coach Daniel Cox said the key to the program is to keep moving forward.

  • UK's Georgia win wasn'...

    Amid the fickle peculiarities in sports is the short memory. Two years ago Mark Richt was Mahatma of Athens, Georgia. This week he’s a bum.

    Kentucky? Punctuating the victory chants after beating Georgia, analysis was about style points and winning ugly.

    Laughable? Yes.

    Not so many autumns ago the common UK coach complaint was, “...we need to be better in the fourth quarter.”  and “...we need more depth to finish a game.”

  • BLUE vs. WHITE: Boys basketball...

    At first glance, a look at the 09-10 roster might suggest a very raw, inexperienced Spencer County Bears basketball team. While the list of players does reflect youth, much of that youth does have experience and that could pave the way for a much-improved season from last year’s 6-22 record.

  • Western Ky gets bitter intro...

    Did any team north of Lane Kiffin in Knoxville and south of Bill Lynch in Bloomington have a nightmare season to compare with Western Kentucky and Louisville?

    If football ‘09 in Bowling Green and Louisville had a color it would be blue. Fan blue(s), coach firing blue, bone bruise blue.

    At Western Kentucky. Imagine your beer-holding hand chained to railroad tracks and a freight train runs it over, then backs up, does it again, 68, 63 and 62 times.

  • Footie Chicklets 2nd in state

    The Footie Chicklets, a U10 girl’s soccer team with the SCSA, played in the Commonwealth Cup the past two weekends at the E-town soccer complex.

    The Chicklets went undefeated in the regular season, placed first in the JCYSL tournament, and put their record on the line, vying for the top spot in the state in the Commonwealth Cup tournament. 

    They had to win four games the first weekend of tournament against teams from South Nelson, E-town, Okolona, and J-town, in order to advance to the semi finals. 

  • Shawver 7th in state

    Three SCHS runners represented their school at the KHSAA AA State Cross Country meet on November 14. 

    The tough, slow course at the Kentucky Horse Park, along with the unseasonably warm weather, had many runners struggling to perform, and several others falling out of the race altogether. 

  • Shaping up for next year

    The Spencer County Bears finished up their fifth year of playing a full varsity football schedule earlier this month with a 3-8 record for first-year coach Wes Napper. While in terms of wins and losses, the season might not seem to be a success, the program itself looks to be in pretty good shape for next year.

  • Elk harvest was a “...

    Joe Cotter, of Mt. Eden, posed with his prized bull elk harvested October 13 during the second week of the Kentucky Elk Hunt.

    The elk antlers had six points on the left side and seven points on the right side making it a 6x7 in hunter lingo. Cotter said the animal was 330 inch B&C and he hopes it will go in the record book as one of the top 10 in Kentucky. B&C is short for Boone and Crockett – the official trophy scoring organization in North America.

    “This was a hunt of a life time and the largest animal I have ever taken,” said Cotter.

  • Footie Chicklets win JCYSL...

    The Footie Chicklets, a U10 girls soccer team with the SCSA, took home the first place trophy in the Jefferson County Youth Soccer League tournament.  They outscored their opponents 35-0 and only allowed a few shots on goal by the opposition.

    The Chicklets play with a lot of heart and skill, said Coach Mike Heuglin, they seem to draw a crowd at every outing and have maintained a very impressive undefeated record this season. 

    The Chicklets were scheduled to play in the Commonwealth State Cup tournament November 7 and 8.
