  • Lady Bears fall to Anderson


    The girls are 7-12 on the season, following a district loss to Anderson County last week, 3-1. The girls played four close sets with the Lady Bearcats, losing the first, 25-22, winning the second 25-23, dropping the third 25-21, and the final set, 25-18.

    The girls will be busy this week, and had a  home game scheduled for Monday night against  Whitefield Academy, and were to travel to Western Hills on Tuesday.  They will play at Bullitt East on Tuesday and East Jessamine next Monday.

  • Bears split two games last week


  • Bears corral Mustangs, 21-13


    It wasn’t pretty, but the Spencer County Bears held on for a 21-13 victory over North Oldham Friday night, to improve to 6-1 on the season, and 2-0 in the district.

    Many may have expected a more lopsided score against the winless Mustangs, but North Oldham brought a pretty stingy defense to Taylorsville and the Bears managed to do just enough to make it a victorious homecoming night.

  • A win is a win

    In 2009, Spencer County entered the 3A playoffs with just three wins on the season and opened postseason play by traveling to the heart of Louisville to take on Central, a team that was beginning a dominant run that culminated in three straight state titles. The Bears lost, 56-36, but it was probably their best game of the season and despite the fact that it ended the season, there was a sense that the Bears had claimed a moral victory of sorts.

  • 2016 Homecoming Queen and King


    Hannah Quiroa was crowned 2016 Homecoming Queen and Branden Leff was crowned King during halftime of Friday’s football game at Spencer County High School. Both Quiroa and Leff are seniors and they were crowned during the homecoming celebration at midfield.

  • Lady Bears rout Iroquois 15-0


    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer team continue their stellar play, taking two of three games last week, including a 15-0 rout of visiting Iroquois last Monday.

    Cailey Meredith scored six goals in the victory, which only solidified her place among the top scorers in Kentucky.

    Shorter days and yellowing leaves are about the only ways you can tell it is the third week of September. Temperature wise, it feels like August lasted six plus weeks.
