  • Overlap season, reasons why mid-...

    Frost is on the punkin, woolen sweaters are back and an extra blanket too. High autumn in Kentucky ... clock hands turn back, sugar maple are wearing red, yellows and brown, that aroma is spiced tea, and good memories get a replay.

    This week, a few reasons why November here is like no place else. Overlap.

    1. High school football players have decals splashed across their helmets and state title on their minds. College dudes are wearing whiskers and heavy tapped ankles. That crescendo in the distance ... bouncing basketballs.

  • Meet of Champions, Spencer...

    The SCMS cross country team attended the KTCCCA Meet of Champions on November 1 in Lexington. The meet, which is the state championship event for both elementary and middle school students, is divided into both 6th grade and under events, and 7th and 8th grade events.

  • Bears trounce Rebels

    After one half, the Spencer County Bears may have tricked the Atherton Rebels into thinking the game would be a close affair, but then they treated the home fans to an offensive outburst in the second half on their way to a 42-8 Halloween night thrashing.

    While the end result was sweet, Bears Coach Matt Powenski said his team let up after getting off to a fast start.

    “We came out ready and scored twice and we relaxed a little bit,” said Powenski. “We’re trying to teach our players not to play down.”

  • Deer hunters take to the woods...

    Kentucky’s modern gun deer season opens statewide Nov. 8. For the state’s estimated 254,000 deer hunters, it’s the most popular weekend of the year to hunt.

    “The deer harvest to this point is up from last year,” said Tina Brunjes, big game program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “That’s partly due to good weather, but also indicative that we’ve got a lot of deer.”

  • Train-wrecked Kentucky: Eat...

    Humble pie comes to us all. Last Saturday, near 2 o’clock eastern time SEC East south-bound Kentucky was struck by a north-bound coal train called Florida at sonic speed. 63-5.

    By 2:45, as jubilant Gator fans flapped their arms and clamored for more from the Urban Meyer diesels, three things happened.

    First, Steve Ortmayer, the special teams coach, got a chin job from Rich Brooks after which he looked as if he’d been hit by a blocking sled.

  • Tourney champs

    The SCMS 7th grade Lady Grizzly basketball team beat New Haven Middle last Thursday night to win the Mid-Kentucky Middle School NIT championship, 31-20.

    The event was held at Washington County High School

    Mackenzie Myers lead the Lady Grizzlies with 16 points, 6 offensive rebounds, 15 defensive rebounds and 2 assists. She was followed by Allie Stevens with 6 points, 3 offensive rebounds and 6 defensive rebounds. Taylor Jaggers had 6 points, 2 offensive rebounds and 2 defensive rebounds. Kayla York also added 2 points and 5 steals.

  • PHOTO: Another Stallion win

    The Spencer County Stallions Mighty Mites won their game in the Best of the Rest tournament at Shawnee High School on Saturday. They defeated the KYS Steelers 31-7. Trevor Hutt scored 2 touchdowns (as shown in picture). Other touchdowns were scored by Trey Early, JJ Dickerson, Peyton Huckleberry and an extra point by Wyatt DeRudder. Congratulations to all the team-defense was great as well as offense. They will compete in the championship game on Saturday, at Southern High School.

     

  • Girls Cross Country takes second...

    Spencer County Cross Country had a busy week as they attended both the Mid-Ky Conference Championship and the DeSales Invitational in the space of three days.

    The Mid-Ky Conference Championship was held in Nelson County Oct. 23 and Spencer County upset the local teams and spectators by coming away with first, second, and third place team finishes.

    The girls’ varsity team took top honors with a score of 35 points, while the boys varsity won second place with 54 points, and the SCMS boys team took third place with 76 points.

  • Bears run down Henry Co.

    An effective run-it-down-their-throat offense, combined with a defense that made the big plays, allowed the Spencer County Bears to collect what their coach calls the biggest win in the school’s history with a 38-25 victory on the road over Henry County Friday night.

    “This is no doubt the biggest win in our program’s history,” said Head Coach Matt Powenski, whose Bears, at 2-5 on the season, came in as the decided underdogs against the ranked Wildcats.
