  • Bears stop Gallatin, 72-66


    The Spencer County Bears defeated Gallatin County, 72-66, Saturday afternoon in a game held at Henry County, a place the Bears would like to return to later next month as it is the traditional host of the boys 8th region tournament.

    The Bears and Wildcats battled early on with the two teams trading the lead for much of the first quarter before Spencer County’s Sam Conley scored six straight points on a drive and a foul, and then a three-pointer to put the Bears up 11-8.

  • Lady Bears pick up district win...


    After an embarrassing outing the previous week against district foe Anderson County, the Spencer County Lady Bears were looking to bounce back when they jumped back into district action Friday hosting Shelby County. They did so in convincing fashion, taking a 62-45 win over the Lady Rockets.

    “I told them they had to play with a chip on their shoulders and continue to earn the respect from our district opponents,” said Lady Bears Coach Brandy Scott. “We were ready.”

  • Outdoors - Deer harvest near 140...


    It’s often said these are the good old days for deer hunting in Kentucky, but for those of a certain age, or new to hunting, it’s all they have ever known.

    The world was tip-toeing into a new millennium the last time Kentucky’s deer harvest did not break 100,000 for a season. The 2016-17 season cleared that mark and surpassed 130,000 for the fifth consecutive season.

    Jenna Russell, a senior at Spencer County High School, recently signed her letter of intent to play collegiately at Lindsey Wilson College. Russell, a standout for the Lady Bears, is thankful for her past coaches and teammates, and said she is planning to major in Elementary Education and wants to minor in Journalism.

  • Lady Bears fall hard


    Playing in front of their home crowd in the first time in nearly a month, and riding a six game winning streak, the Spencer County Lady Bears were ready to prove they could play against the premier team in the district when they hosted Anderson County Thursday night.

    What they proved is that when the other team is on fire and your own team can’t buy a basket, things can get ugly really quick. And so it was with the Lady Bear’s 57-27 loss to the Bearcats.

  • Bears upbeat despite dropping...


    The Spencer County Bears fell to another of the 8th Regions top teams last Tuesday night as the Oldham County Colonels dispatched the Bears 53-46 in Taylorsville.

    It was the second straight loss for the Bears after they had won eight of their previous nine games. However, Coach Jason Burns is still high on his team.

    “It’s been a tough week, but also very positive as well,” said Burns.

  • Talking March Madness in January

    We’re just now in the middle of January, but those whose jobs are to gin up interest in postseason college basketball are already releasing mock brackets, pairing and seedings for the NCAA Division I basketball tournament.
    With so much of the season left to play, it seems a bit premature, but sportswriters seem to have nothing better to do between games than to guess about what’s to come later this season and even next season. (Football writers have already issued a top 25 for a sport that won’t see its first game for another eight months).
