  • Bears soccer


    The boys hosted Anderson County on Saturday and dropped a narrow 5-4 decision and are now 3-4-1 on the season. The boys are on the road this week with a game scheduled Tuesday at Bullitt Central, then on Thursday at Bullitt East and they will travel to Owen County on Saturday.

  • Lady Bears soccer


    The girls scored a huge 11-0 win over Louisville Brown, with Cailey Merideth scoring seven goals and Jenna Russell recording seven assists in the victory. The Lady Bears also claimed a 7-0 win over Hart County and dropped a 4-1 decision to John Hardin last week. The girls, 4-4-1 on the season, were scheduled to host Anderson County on Monday and Bullitt Central on Tuesday.

  • Outdoors - Proper shotgun...


    A dove comes into your section of the field on opening day. You crouch behind a row of sunflowers and excitedly wait for the dove to come into range.

    The dove keeps coming and you jump up, shoulder your shotgun and fire, followed by another shot and then another, none of them threatening the bird. The dove keeps flying out of the field.

    The opening weekend of dove season can bring frustration to wingshooters as dove hunters, even highly experienced ones, start missing shots they normally make. The misses snowball and aggravation mounts.

They played the National Canada  team out of Ontario, Canada in the championship game. Spencer County FC won  4-3 in a penalty kick shootout to bring the championship home to the Spencer  County Futbol Club.

  • SC does Friday night RIGHT

    Back in 2003, when the very first Spencer County High School football team took the field for their inaugural game, then coach Junior Dugan gathered the team beneath a tree near the field for a pregame pep talk.

    I don’t recall everything that was said, and the game was a pretty meaningless Saturday afternoon junior varsity affair, but Dugan did tell his players that they had an opportunity to lay the foundation for a new tradition.

  • Bears outlast Bullitt East, 55-46


    When Bullitt East scored on a quarterback keeper with a minute left in the third quarter to take their first lead of the night, 39-35, there was no panic on the Spencer County sidelines. Instead, the Bears retook the field and then retook the lead on one snap when junior running back Kadin Smith found a hole and raced 65 yards, putting the Bears up 42-39.

    It was that kind of night for the Bears, as they scored on big plays and needed every one to hold off a potent Charger offense before coming away with a 55-46 victory, their third in a row.

  • Spencer County Elementary Cross...


    The Spencer County Elementary Cross Country Team (grades 1st-3rd) competed in their first meet of the season, the Shelby County Invitational, on September 3. The team did well placing 6th out of 11 teams. The boys were led by Buck Murphy, who placed 23rd out of 119 runners

  • Outdoors - September is quota...

    As the carefree days of summer give way to the first days of September, it’s finally starting to feel like fall in Kentucky.

    A cold front promised to break the stranglehold of heat and humidity just as wingshooters returned to dove fields for the traditional Sept. 1 season opener.

  • Bears edge Jaguars, 28-27


    After shutting out East Jessamine in the first half, the Spencer County Bears defense bent in the second half, but they held when it counted, stopping the Jaguars on a two-point conversion with only seconds remaining to preserve a hard-fought 28-27 victory in Nicholasville Friday night.

    “That is a quality win on the road. The team showed some character, heart and a competitive spirit,” said Bears Coach Mike Marksbury.
