  • 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.

  • Heat hampers Cross Country team...

    On August 26, the Spencer County Cross Country team had their first 5k of the season at the St. X Tiger Run. On the way to the race, the bus was silent with faint sleepy whispers every now and then. Everyone’s nerves were noticeable as we got closer to where the meet was held, but we were all optimistic as the morning progressed.
