Today's Sports

  • Hilltopper Riggs

    Last year, Chris Riggs was playing football on a field without permanent seating and that had just gotten lights that would allow night games. If all goes as planned next season, Riggs could be playing a game in front of 107,000 people when his Western Kentucky Hilltoppers visit Tennessee.

    The 2008 Spencer County graduate has turned a stellar high school football career into an opportunity to play Division 1 football at WKU as he was accepted as a walk-on recently and is currently playing on the scout team.

  • Bears unable to recover mistakes

    First, it was the rain that came in waves, enough to delay Spencer County’s season-opening football game against Bullitt Central by 30 minutes. Once play began, it was the mistakes that began accumulating for the Bears as they basically spotted the visiting Cougars to a two-touchdown lead in the opening minutes on their way to a 34-7 loss.

  • Grizzlies take down two foes

    SCMS 14, North Oldham 6

    The Spencer County Middle School Grizzly Football team travelled to Goshen on Tuesday night to take on North Oldham Middle.

    The game started with North Oldham driving down the field surprisingly easy. They would score on a 2-yard run off tackle and the extra point to take the lead 7-0.

  • Soccer: Girls tie, boys lose

    The Spencer County boys and girls soccer teams will get a bit of a break this week after completing the first part of their schedules Tuesday.

    The girls have comprised a record of two wins, no losses and one tie following a see-saw affair at home against Western Hills Thursday that ended in a stalemate.

    Western Hills struck first with a goal at the 15:47 mark to take a 1-0 lead, which is where the score stood at the half.

    In the second half, senior Shelby Pfeiffer got the Lady Bears on the board with a goal of her own, to knott the score at 1-1.

    Cross country back on the trail

    Spencer County Cross Country was back in action Aug. 30 at the Saint Xavier Tiger Run.

  • Bears flat against Cougars

    The Spencer County Bears will kickoff the 2008 season this Friday night when they play host to Bullitt Central at 7:30. It will be an opportunity to not only avenge a loss from last season, but to make up for a lackluster performance in their final preseason scrimmage last week.

    If the Bears are to get their season off on the right track, they’ll need to hit the field fired up against the Cougars, something that was not evident when they hosted Montgomery county for a scrimmage last Friday.

    They will be action again Thursday when they host Western Hills at 5:30 and again on Tuesday when they host Mercer County.
