  • Bears fall to East Jessamine

    The Spencer County Bears got their 2010 season off to a disappointing start Friday night as they fell 45-20 to East Jessamine in Nicholasville.

    Coach Wes Napper said his squad played well at times but against good teams, they will have to learn to keep that effort going all night.

    The Bears began their season at Oldham County last weekend and suffered a 5-0 defeat to the Colonels. Head Coach Paul Taylor said fatigue hampered Spencer County.

    “Conditioning and organization were issues for us,” he said, noting that a few players dealt with leg cramps.

  • Volleyball team hindered by...

     While most fall sports teams are just getting started, the Spencer County High School volleyball team has already competed in two tournaments and several regular season games.

    Early returns are nothing spectacular, as the girls have posted a 2-11 record while battling a busy early schedule and more than a few injuries.

    First-year head Coach Tim Elder initially thought his team’s weakness might be youth, but now he lists the various sprains, bruises and bumps that have left his team a bit hobbled as their biggest vulnerability.

  • Lady Bears begin season 2-2

    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer teams is winning some games and some respect as they finished their first week of the season with a 2-2 record.

    The girls opened at Oldham County and fell behind 1-0 but a goal by freshman Madison Ratchford tied it 1-1 before the Lady Colonels pulled away for the final 4-1 win. After the game, the opposing coach praised the Spencer County girls on their effort, telling them it was one of the best performances by a Spencer County team he’d seen.

  • Defense will be the key in Bears...

    First-year Spencer County High School boys soccer coach Paul Taylor is new to the job, but he’s not new to the boys who will take the field under his charge this week. Taylor’s been coaching youth soccer in the county for about a decade and has watched many of his current players come up through the ranks.

    As they’ve matured and developed as players, he’s done the same as a coach, and there’s hope that might be a winning combination as the Bears embark on a new season after compiling a 5-11-1 record last year.

  • Alumni soccer game

    Spencer County High School Soccer program held its second annual alumni soccer game in the sweltering August heat Friday.

  • Lady Bears show promise in...

    When it comes to success on the field this year, youth could be both a help and a hindrance for the Spencer County Lady Bears soccer team.

    New coach Charlie Traughber said the team will have to rely on young players, but thankfully, those young players have shown considerable promise.

    “Our freshmen class is a huge strength this year. Several freshmen will start and see significant playing time,” he said, noting that many of the young players have played on club teams and have developed well to this point.
