  • 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.

  • Sports in KY: Saturday in the...

    Observations as college football nears its midway mark.

    Commonwealth’s Top Shelf: University of Cumberlands Patriots 5-0; Centre College Prayin’ Colonels 5-0. And Eastern Kentucky tightened a grip on first place in the OVC.

    University of Kenyucky? Still clawing for respect, but still half dozen Randall Cobbs short of rare air that is the Southeastern Conference penthouse. The high roller apartments where three of America’s top four teams live – Florida, Alabama and LSU.

  • Lady Bears running on a 4-6...

    JOHN SHINDLEBOWER for The Spencer Magnet

    Cheyenne McKinley battles a Ft. Knox defender in a recent game for the Spencer County Lady Bears. The girls stand at 4-6 on the season after a 4-0 loss to South Oldham on the road last week. The girls will be back in action on Thursday when they host Henry County.

  • A look back as Bears near home...

    It’s finally fall and time for football. Sure, the high school regular season is half-way complete, but things will get interesting in the next few weeks as the Bears have games against all three district opponents looming ahead.

    Last week the Bears had their open date, a good time to examine the first part their season, mend some wounds and prepare for the final stretch.

  • Wildcats, Cards and Hilltoppers...

    Kentucky Wildcats, Louisville Cardinals, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

    With last Saturday’s fiasco(s) in mind, a twist on a Thomas Paine refrain. “These are the times that try men’s soles.”

    Pummeled by Florida, and Utah and Navy respectively, will the Wildcats, Cards and Hilltoppers pack up their cleats and beat a hasty retreat to the rear?

    Could be.
