  • 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.

    The Spencer County Bears soccer team took a 2-1 victory over Bullitt Central last Tuesday. The Bears will be back in action Thursday when they host Fort Knox. They will be home next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as well, hosting North Oldham, Jeffersontown and Carroll County.

    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.

    Workers recently constructed a new concession stand and press box at the new Stallions football field. The building was erected by a small but mighty group of volunteers, and built largely with donated or discounted supplies. The land for the football field was donated and leveled by Michael and Bobby Smith.

     

  • Two yards too short; SCHS loses...

    Spencer County’s Cameron Smith stretched for all he could, but his game-ending rushing attempt ended just short of the goal-line, preserving a 42-39 victory for Elizabethtown Friday night at Central Hardin High School.

    Playing the second game of a double-header, the Bears and Panthers didn’t get underway until 9:15 p.m., but both teams took turns lighting up the scoreboard.

    As August gave way a fresh breeze blew across Kentucky last week, sweeping out for awhile, Rick Pitino bombast, John Calipari-Memphis spin and the fruity smell on Billy Clyde Gillispie’s breath.

    Kentucky’s football coach told a capacity crowd at a Jefferson County alumni luncheon, “We are clearly a better football team than last year.”

    Applause. Genuine, strong, without the hollow politeness of years past.

    UK’s Mahatma had spoken. Take it to the bank.

  • Bears struggle with grueling...

    The Spencer County Bears boys’ soccer team is off to a rough start, but much of that is due to a very rough early-season schedule. Combine that with the fact that the program is short on players and experience, and it’s no surprise that this may indeed be a learning year for the team.
