  • PHOTO: Volleyball Lady Bears...

    Coach Tim Elder congratulates his team during the deciding game of the Lady Bears’ 2-1 win over Bullitt East in volleyball Monday night.

    The girls are 9-18 on the season after splitting a pair of matches last week. They beat Iroquois last Tuesday in three games and dropped a 2-1 decision to Louisville Brown on the road. This week, the girls were to be at North Bullitt Tuesday and will play their final home game tonight against Fort Knox.

  • Lady Bears fall to North Oldham

    The Spencer County Lady Bears dropped a 5-2 decision to Eighth Region power North Oldham at home Monday night, but they have little time to fret as they must turn around tonight and travel to face a tough South Oldham team.

  • Football team improves offense,...

    It wasn’t reflected on the scoreboard, but the Spencer County Bears probably played their best offensive game of the season Friday night in a 21-0 shutout loss to district rival Collins.
    An inability to finish drives played a key role in the Bears’ fourth loss in five games, but they were able to take away some positives in the loss, like the knowledge that they outrushed the Titans for the game and picked up more first downs.

  • COLUMN: No joy in Jokerville

    There is no joy in Jokerville this week and the forecast isn’t good for next Saturday either. But, there’s no crying in football, right?
    For Kentucky football 2011 cowboy-up time has come early.
    Fresh off a 38-point tenderizing by Florida, the Wildcats travel to Baton Rouge where a big ole bunch of ornery cajun crocodiles lie in a bayou mud bank with 679 fangs each shining while they wonder if tenderized Wildcat tastes like chicken.

    Spencer County goalie Derek Clemens boots the ball downfield for the Bears during a recent game. The boys soccer team had a tough week last week, dropping a 6-3 decision to Jeffersontown before being shutout by Bullitt East 10-0. This week, the Bears were scheduled to travel to John Hardin on Tuesday, will host Iroquois on Wednesday, will welcome in Whitfield Academy on Saturday and will host North Oldham on Monday.

    Danny Blackwell of Taylorsville won the Clayton Homes of Stanford UMP Sportsman feature event at Bluegrass Speedway in Bardstown, KY on Saturday, Sept. 17.

  • Coach happy with Lady Bears...

    Spencer County’s girls soccer coach Charlie Traughber knew last week was going to be a test as the Lady Bears were going up against more good competition in the Lady Bulldog Cup at Male High School. They passed.

  • COLUMN: Could conference re-...

    Money continues to dominate and dictate the changes in college athletics. Just this weekend, it was reported that both Syracuse and Pittsburgh will be leaving the Big East Conference to join the Atlantic Coast Conference and there are at least a dozen other schools around the nation mulling similar changes.
    Chances are, conferences as we know them today will look vastly different next year, and there’s even more talk about forming four 16-team super conferences for football that would comprise the top 64 teams in the nation.

  • Yellowjackets sting Bears

    The field was flawless, but what happened between the lines at times resembled a comedy of errors Friday night as the Spencer County Bears fell to the Woodford County Yellowjackets 34-7.

  • COLUMN: Tribute, please, for...

    To the victor, the spoils. Trumpets please, for Charles the Second.
    For Louisville’s coach Charlie Strong, not enough (media) tribute, says here, for the miracle on Cooper Drive last week. The scope of his football team’s re-cast from Sept. 9 to Sept. 17 was a stroke of motivational genius so obvious, his pal Joker Phillips should apply to attend Charles II’s summer clinic.
