    Tori Palmer, shown here in the season opener against Oldham County, broke out for a whopping seven goals in the team’s second game, a 9-5 win over visiting Jefferstontown. Cheyenne McKinley and Aliesha Patterson also scored goals for the Lady Bears, who fell 2-0 in the last game to Louisville Collegiate. The girls will be back in action tonight at home when they host Southern, and will travel to Western Hills on Monday

    Spencer County Middle School won 20-0 over Washington County in their season opener at home last Tuesday night. Tailback Will Edwards scored twice, with fullback Cody Nevitt scoring once. Grizzlies were scheduled to play My Old Kentucky Home away last night. Their next game will be Thursday when the B-team plays at home against St. Charles.

  • Stallions trample Fairdale

    Stallions’ Pee Wee team was victorious over the Fairdale Bulldogs this past week 43-39, bringing their season record to 2-0. In one photo, Kaden Smith (4) scores a touchdown for the Stallions Pee Wee team while being chased down by a bunch of bulldogs. In the other photo, Wyatt DeRudder and an unidentified Stallion player make a big tackle against a Bulldog player.

    The Stallions will host the Doss Dragons at home this Saturday.

    Senior Derek Jewell approached the ball as the Spencer County Bears soccer team tried to advance it downfield against Oldham County last week. The boys dropped a physical battle to the Colonels, 5-0.


  • Volley Bears at home tonight

    The Spencer County Lady Bears Volleyball team fell just one game short of sweeping the Bullitt County schools to start off the 2009 season.

    The girls opened their campaign with a 2-0 match victory over Bullitt Central on the road, winning games by scores of 25-12 and 25-14. They followed that up with a 2-1 match victory over North Bullitt at home last week. They took the first game 25-18, dropped the second game 25-17, then took the rubber match in an exciting 25-23 final.

  • Excitement found in offense

    The Spencer County Bears kickoff the 2009 football season Friday night when they host East Jessamine at 7:30. This year’s squad is made up of familiar names, new names, and maybe most importantly more names than any Bears team in the past.

  • Stallions season opener

    During the recent season opener for the Spencer County Stallions youth football league, two out of the three teams won.

    The Mighty Mites beat the KYS Steelers 20-6, while the Pee Wee’s won 24-12 against their age group from the same league.

  • Taking us back to Bizzaro World

    Back to Bizzaro World, with Rick and Vick. Confessions, concessions, remorse and apologies.

    Never mind. Soon enough a new wave of stupidity-turned-lawyer spin will move Rick Pitino and Michael Vick names off front pages, off ESPN’s screen roll and off a Letterman punch line list.

    Troubling, Pitino’s link to an abortion, but I am not among those stepping onto ivory tower balconies calling for Pitino to resign, be fired or hanged in effigy. He knows his demons. We know ours.

  • Why is football a fall sport if...

    Americans seem to have trouble with their seasons anymore. The calendar is pretty clear as to when the four seasons begin, but we always seem to be in a rush.

    Take summer for instance, the calendar suggests that it always begins in the third week of June. But we Americans start summer on Memorial Day.

    Technically, summer ends in the third week of September, but we Americans close down the pools on or before Labor Day, sometimes three full weeks before the season is really over.
