  • SCHS gets tough draw, loses...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears have taken two huge steps over the past couple of years, but last week they got a glimpse of how big that next step is going to be.

    Advancing to the 8th Region Tournament for the first time in years, the Lady Bears got an unfortunate draw in the first round, and had to face the Region’s top team in Simon Kenton at South Oldham. The outcome was decided early, but the Lady Bears at least showed some fight before the final horn sealed the eventual 61-34 score.

  • Young Bears team reflects on a...

    Boys high school basketball in Kentucky is winding down with the Sweet Sixteen slated for next week at Rupp Arena. Those who watched the Spencer County Bears suffer through a dismal 6-22 record this year might not give much thought to titles and trophies, but while the young squad has plenty of room for improvement, they’ve got plenty of time to reach it.

    “I definitely knew that this would be a tough year for us coming in with such a young team,” said head coach Jacob Barmore.

  • Lady Bears claw their way to...

    The month of March has meant little to Spencer County Lady Bears basketball in years past, mostly because it was usually just a time to look back on disappointing seasons capped by disappointing finishes.

    But this March is different. This March the Lady Bears are playing and winning and advancing farther in the postseason than they ever have.  With last Wednesday’s thrilling 42-38 win over 30th District dynasty Shelby County, the Lady Bears not only advanced to the championship game, but also qualified for the 8th Region Tournament.

  • Weight team takes third

    The Spencer County High School Weight Team recorded its highest finish to date with a 3rd place finish at the Fern Creek High School “Rumble in the Jungle”. Fern Creek’s weight meet had a total of 14 teams competing in the bench press, power clean, and squat. Spencer County was in position to win the weight meet outright, but some late scratches on the squat cost them some valuable team points and individual finishes.

  • SCMS archery team heads to...

    The Spencer County Middle School archery team placed third in a regional tournament Saturday held at Moore Traditional School.

  • Warrior class (Capt.) Mike Casey...

    Warrior class.

    It’s blue blood national image aside, the bricks and mortar that underpin University of Kentucky’s basketball success story for more than half century has been a rich mix of blue collar grit, tenacity, pride, stamina and courage.

    A warrior class.

    Jodie Meeks is one, and Patrick Patterson qualifies. Jeff Sheppard was, and Tayshaun Prince. Names fans today find familiar. In fact, they are the latest in a long line of warriors.

  • SCHS boys fall in district play...

    Having watched the Lady Bears make history minutes before, the Spencer County Bears took the floor with little to lose in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament as they squared off against an older, bigger Shelby County squad.

    While the young Bears made a game of it early, the magic surrounding the girls’ first ever district tournament win couldn’t work any wonders for the boys, as their long season came to close with a 69-41 defeat.

  • Kentucky completes Vols sweep...

    Kentucky’s win against Tennessee was a notch down from gorgeous, but was pretty enough to earn the delight of Big Blue Nation. A 13-0 run from the get-go and an exclamation mark at the end.

    A Vols Sweep is UK’s season highlight so far.

    The Wildcats’ play was poised, patient and selfless (23 assists) and postgame buzz “... if only UK had a third scorer,” was made redundant (again) when the Committee had 20 points, 10 rebounds and and seven assists.

  • Marshall: An all-around performer

    Kenisha Marshall has been a target all season as opponents have tried just about every strategy to shut her down. Getting noticed by opposing coaches has resulted in double-teams and tight defenses, but it’s also resulted in Marshall being selected as an All 8th Region performer.

    Lady Bears Coach Daniel Cox announced Marshall’s honor this week as his squad is hoping to erase a less-than-stellar end to the season as they gear up to enter tournament play.

  • Bears head into post season

    It’s a new season for the Spencer County Bears tonight as they open up the 30th District tournament with a rematch with Shelby County in Lawrenceburg. But the Bears are reeling from a 6-21 regular season record and they enter postseason a little bruised and battered.
