  • Bears fall to West Jessamine

    Football is a game of inches, but in Friday night’s contest against West Jessamine, it was a couple of feet that proved the difference maker in the Bears’ 28-14 loss in Nicholasville.

  • Cross country begins new season

    Spencer County Cross Country has been in action, running down the competition for the past two weekends. 

    Team members attended the Shelby County Invitational on September 5, where the boys team was lead by Cory Kleinjan’s 10th place finish in the varsity 5K race. 

    In the JV race, Nathan Hahn placed 13th and Drew Abell 15th of 111 runners.  Another highlight for the boys team was Travis O’Dell’s 11th place finish in the middle school 3K, with a time of 11:09.

  • UK's perfect storm, UofL...

    Before newspaper types become fevered with clever ways to get Hartline and Justin Burke into a 64-point headline ... a look back to last Saturday.

    If your shirt was blue then Kentucky’s Miami Crush was all that and more. Maybe a fourth-and-inches short of superb.

    On a 1-10 scale for a season opener, an 8.5.

    √ Michael ‘Crisp Man’ Hartline was no game manager in this one, but a leader of men. His execution with a variety pack offense was immaculate. No hesitations, no happy feet, no turnovers. Best part? No bad decisions.

  • Bears volleyball: "Our team...

    The 2009 SCHS Lady Bears Volleyball team has hit the ground running this year.  Early season wins against district competitors North Bullitt and Bullitt Central were signs that this team was ready to compete.  The Lady Bears fought a hard battle against Bullitt East to lose in three games.  This match looked to be a preview of the district championships with the Lady Bears preparing for a victory.

  • PHOTO: UPS donates poles to youth

    Submitted to The Spencer Magnet

    Randy Wise (right) and Steve Hume, both of the county parks and recreation department,  recently unloaded light poles at Ray Jewell Park that were donated by UPS. By getting lights on the fields, it effectively gives Spencer County Youth Baseball eight more fields, since they can schedule multiple games and practices on the same days. The league has also secured donated labor for setting the poles, but is still actively seeking additional help.

  • Bears football: an evening well...

    Spencer County football fans are finding it necessary to arrive early and stay late when it comes to keeping up with this year’s team, following a come-from-behind 31-27 victory over highly-ranked Frankfort Friday night, the third straight game where the outcome was determined on the final series.

  • SCHS Volleyball now 5-8

    The Spencer County Volleyball team now stands at 5-8 on the season after a busy week to begin September.

    Their action began last Wednesday when they traveled to Louisville Ballard and lost two games to the Lady Bruins. The first game was a bit lopsided, with the Lady Bears falling 25-7, but they fought back and battled hard in the second game before losing 30-28.

    On Thursday, the girls hosted the Lady Wildcats of Henry County, and dropped two games, losing 25-20 in the first, and 25-13 in the second.
