  • Mountain Lions no match for Bears

    It took three weeks and a road trip to the southeast corner of the state, but the Spencer County Bears collected their first win of the season Saturday and did so in convincing style with a 42-15 win over Pineville that was even more dominating than the score appears.

    With temperatures in the 90s at the 3 p.m. afternoon kickoff, the Bears had plenty of reason to sweat, but from the outset there was no sweating the outcome as the Bears took control from the beginning.

  • Cross country places in top 20...

    Spencer County Cross Country attended the Rumble thru the Jungle in Oldham County on September 13.

    This meet, featuring over 2,200 runners and 25 of the top ranked teams in the state, promises to be the toughest meet of the season with the exception of the state championship.

    In addition to the tough competition and the sheer volume of runners, temperatures in the 90s also made conditions difficult for athletes and spectators alike.  Oldham County EMS treated at least half a dozen runners who went down as a result of the heat.
