  • 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.

  • Did Briar Jumpers’ One...

    A mammoth ice storm is history, sun angle has wandered left, daylight arrives early and stays longer, a crappie run is just beyond the Farmer’s Almanac horizon and basketball madness is here.

    Yes, mid-February.

    We thank a couple kids in Kentucky’s heartland, at Somerset in Pulaski County. Ninth - grader D.J. Townsend and tenth- grader David Weigel play for a team called Briar Jumpers in a home gym called the Briar Patch.

    For our state, how perfect.

  • Lady Bears working to get out of...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears have picked a bad time to suffer through a slump, but after losing three straight, and six of their last ten, it’s hard to label this latest stretch anything but.

    The skid started last Friday night on an evening set aside to honor the team’s three seniors – Kenisha Marshall, Shelby Pfeiffer and Lindsey Kempf. All three girls have helped turn the tide of Lady Bears’ basketball around over the past few seasons, but the past week is not how they had hoped to finish up their final campaign.

  • Pfeiffer signs with...

    Friday, January 23rd was a special day in the life of SCHS senior Shelby Pfeiffer. Not only did she help the Lady Bears get a big basketball win over Atherton, and get crowned homecoming queen, but Pfeiffer decided where she would spend the next four years of her life.

    Pfeiffer signed her national letter of intent with NCCAA Mideast coach of the year, Thom Jones and Campbellsville University to play soccer. It was a memorable ceremony as 10 of the 11 returning Lady Tigers were  at the signing to welcome Shelby to the team.
