  • 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.

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.

  • Grizzlies fall in first-ever...

    For the first time in the state of Kentucky’s history, there are middle school playoffs for the sport of football. Constructed last year, the Kentucky Middle School Football Association was created to organize and structure football in the state.

    Cody Ingram tries to maneuver around two defenders during a recent home game for the Spencer County Bears.

    The boys soccer team finished the season with a loss last Monday night during the opening round of district tournament play in Shelby County, but the game was a good measuring stick for how much improvement they made over the season.

    The Bears fell 5-1 to highly-regarded Oldham County, but in doing so, made great strides from earlier in the season when they lost to the same team 10-0 back in August.

    For the season, the Bears finished 4-13-2 on the year.

  • Hilltopper hoops and $EC profit...

    A harvest moon over Kentucky wasn’t the only spectacular last week.

    College athletics stole a place in the news cycle galaxy with a triumph for student-athletics that drew virtually no media herd commentary.

    First, NCAA president Myles Brand reported a sampling of freshmen enrolled 1998-2001 reflected student-athletes in all sports earning college degrees had reached 79 per cent, one point shy of his goal - eight of every 10 student-athletes leaving college with degrees.
