  • Oh, what a night for a comeback

    First-year SCHS Head Football Coach Wes Napper had a night to remember Friday. In his first game at the helm, his Bears rallied late in the fourth quarter for a 35-34 victory over East Jessamine in front of a large and excited home crowd. He got the traditional post-game empty-the-water cooler shower from players, and was later given the game ball. Not a bad way to start a season, not to mention a career.

    Tori Palmer, shown here in the season opener against Oldham County, broke out for a whopping seven goals in the team’s second game, a 9-5 win over visiting Jefferstontown. Cheyenne McKinley and Aliesha Patterson also scored goals for the Lady Bears, who fell 2-0 in the last game to Louisville Collegiate.

  • Stallions trample Fairdale

In one photo, Kaden Smith (4) scores a touchdown for the Stallions Pee Wee team while being chased down by a bunch of bulldogs. In the other photo, Wyatt DeRudder and an unidentified Stallion player make a big tackle against a Bulldog player.

    Senior Derek Jewell approached the ball as the Spencer County Bears soccer team tried to advance it downfield against Oldham County last week. The boys dropped a physical battle to the Colonels, 5-0.


  • Volley Bears at home tonight

    The Spencer County Lady Bears Volleyball team fell just one game short of sweeping the Bullitt County schools to start off the 2009 season.

    The girls opened their campaign with a 2-0 match victory over Bullitt Central on the road, winning games by scores of 25-12 and 25-14. They followed that up with a 2-1 match victory over North Bullitt at home last week. They took the first game 25-18, dropped the second game 25-17, then took the rubber match in an exciting 25-23 final.

  • Excitement found in offense

    The Spencer County Bears kickoff the 2009 football season Friday night when they host East Jessamine at 7:30. This year’s squad is made up of familiar names, new names, and maybe most importantly more names than any Bears team in the past.

  • Stallions season opener

    During the recent season opener for the Spencer County Stallions youth football league, two out of the three teams won.

    The Mighty Mites beat the KYS Steelers 20-6, while the Pee Wee’s won 24-12 against their age group from the same league.
