  • 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.

  • SCHS hosts weight lifting meet,...

    Spencer County High School played host to teams across the state last Saturday during their fifth annual weight lifting meet.

    “(This event) is considered a preview for the state championship combining bench and the dead lift,” said Coach Wes Napper, and “a great indicator for what to expect at the state meet at Central Hardin on March 14.”

  • Bears unable to rocket past...

    For a young team like Spencer County, any confidence builder can be a valuable tool. But last week’s 65-49 loss to Shelby County was enough to give at least a glimmer of hope for Coach Jacob Barmore’s squad as they hit the final stretch of the season before squaring off against those same Shelby County Rockets next Wednesday night in the opener of the District Tournament.

    While the score may indicate a different story, the Bears actually competed well with the Rockets, especially in the second half.
