  • Lady Bears get 2 big wins

    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer team is back on track, notching two big wins over the last week as it improved to 3-5 on the season.

    – Imagine, by John Lennon

  • Bears bow to Bardstown

    While a 27-7 loss Friday night was not the way new Spencer County Head Football Coach Mike Marksbury wanted the season to start, he’s already convinced he’s got a team that never is going to quit.

    “I’m disappointed we didn’t win, but looking at the big picture, there are a lot of things that were very positive. First and foremost, the kids never quit,” said Marksbury.

    He said Bardstown was a better team than he imagined, but the Bears stayed competitive throughout.
