  • Lady Bears shock Campbellsville...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears split a pair of games last week, including a 43-35 come-from-behind victory at Campbellsville Thursday night.

    The Lady Bears started sharp, racing out to a 9-4 lead, but then struggled on both ends of the floor as the Lady Eagles were able to battle back and took a double-digit lead late in the second quarter.

  • UK’s young Wildcats...

    Bluegrass buzz: What about Kentucky’s Wildcats?

    Ten games in, one view of the good, the bad, the ugly.

    THE GOOD. Eleven players in Billy Clyde Gillispie’s rotation are underclassmen including five who were elsewhere a season ago. And they’re learning, this ain’t high school.

    Kentucky will become a good team when DeAndre Liggins and others have a Eureka Moment, discover what team-ness is and is not.

  • Lady Bears march ahead with...

    Former Lady Bears coach Richard Dooley had patiently molded a team together that turned the corner last season, compiling a winning record for the first time in several years. Last week, Daniel Cox kept the girls marching in the same direction with two wins in three games, including the season opening 32-24 win to mark the beginning of his tenure.

    Cox deflected any mention of his first victory, saying the season is about the girls and keeping them focused on playing winning basketball.

  • Cross country on the road

    Several Spencer County Cross Country members headed south this past weekend to participate in the AAU National Cross Country Championship in Danville, Alabama.  With good weather conditions and a fast course, the young runners were able to record some impressive times as they represented the Derby City Athletic Club of Louisville.

  • 150 attend grappling tournament

    Edgewater Sports and Taylorsville Spencer County Tourism sponsored the 1st Helio Soneca Grappling Tournament at Taylorsville Elementary School this past Saturday.

    The event organizer, Helio Soneca, felt there is a need for events such as these for practioners of the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to test themselves.

    Soneca said, “Taylorsville is an ideal place to host an event like this due to its central location and welcoming atmosphere.”

  • Up and down arrows point to UK...

    Tongue-in-cheek this week, sorta ... a few UP arrows why one man thinks Kentucky (6-6) going to the Liberty Bowling is a good thing. And, a few DOWN arrows why it isn’t.

    UP ...

    1. 50th anniversary for Liberty ... special gifts for players, freebies for media and party time on Beale Street for everyone.

    2. Chance to beat one team in ‘08 with a winning record, East Carolina is 9-4.

    3. Chance to erase nose-dive finish (lost last three games).

    4. Chance for hat trick, finish above .500 last three seasons.

  • Young Bears drop first three

    Spencer County Coach Jacob Bamore knew his young Bears might struggle out the gate this season, but his emphasis isn’t on how they begin, but how they end as he faces the task of building a young team into a confident squad by year’s end.

  • Western pulls a stunner over No...

    As ugly, but important as Kentucky wins over Kansas State and West Virginia were, Western Kentucky’s stunner against No. 3 Louisville was handsome in patience, smarts, efficiency and toughness. Signature win for coach Ken McDonald and brag-rights feather-in-the-cap for the Hilltoppers.

    More, WKU’s win is a reminder for those struck with fat-head disease, and reduces the perceived distance between No. 3s and 2s in America and the ‘beam-us-up-Scotty,’ types in Sagarin ‘others’ compilations.
