  • In-state players expected to...


    Most years Davonte Robinson would have been the marquee in-state player in Kentucky’s football recruiting class.

    He led Henry Clay in tackles for three straight years (he had 100 tackles and one interception as a senior) and was the top-rated defensive back in the state with offers from Georgia, Louisville, Notre Dame, Ohio State and many others along with UK.

    He was a Class AAA 100-meter dash state champion as a sophomore and helped Henry Clay win team titles in 2015 and 2016.

  • Outdoors - Deer harvest begins...

    Many archery hunters in Kentucky will spend the last long weekend of summer getting an early jump on fall.

    Kentucky’s 2016-17 deer season kicks off the first Saturday in September with the start of the 136-day archery season. Anticipation has been building for months.

    “Everything right now points toward another good season,” said Gabe Jenkins, deer program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

    That is welcome news following a string of record harvests.

    The Spencer County Middle School Lady Grizzlies won their first game of the season with a victory over Elkhorn Middle School in Frankfort Friday night. They then went on to win first place at the Foley Warrior Classic tournament in Berea over the weekend.

  • Former SCHS standout now at Ohio...


    As a senior, Hannah Jaggers helped lead the Spencer County Lady Bears to the school’s first soccer district championship in 2013. Today, she’s got lofty goals at a higher level as her Ohio University Lady Bobcats have dreams of reaching the NCAA tournament.

    Jaggers’ role has increased since her freshman year at Ohio, and just recently, her efforts paid off with the coach rewarding her with a full scholarship.

  • Morris latest in hoops bloodline

    When it comes to playing basketball, Maci Morris has to have it in her blood.

    The Kentucky sophomore guard’s mother, Patti, was a standout at Harlan High School and played at Transylvania. Her father, Lewis, was a standout athlete at Cumberland High School and went on to play at East Tennessee State and Cumberland College.

  • Fall Sports season to kick off

    The Spencer County Bears football team will kick off the season on Saturday, August 20 when they host Bardstown. However, fans can get an early look at the Bears when they travel to North Hardin Friday night at 7:30 for a scrimmage.

    Look in next week’s Spencer Magnet for a preview of the upcoming fall sports season as football, volleyball, and soccer teams all get ready for a successful 2016 season.

  • Kash brings passion

    Fans will have a chance to meet and greet University of Kentucky football players Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium during Fan Day. My guess is that one of the most popular players will be freshman linebacker Kash Daniel of Paintsville.

    Sure, he’s a Kentucky guy. And a Kentucky guy from eastern Kentucky who never wavered in his commitment to the Wildcats.

    He’s also a special football player with unique skills. He won the Paul Hornung Award in Kentucky and was a U.S. Army All-American.

  • It doesn’t get better than high...


    My job is about to get fun again.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love sitting through three hour fiscal court meetings and reporting on riveting topics such as sewage line expansion and mold in the Sheriff’s Office - but there’s only so much excitement  I can take.

    So like millions of Americans, I find a relaxing respite in the world of sports. And over the course of several years, I’ve found that the purest level of sport is played on the high school fields and courts.
