  • Volleyball record not a...

    First year volleyball coach Chris Peer seemed pretty calm as his Spencer County Lady Bears battled Bullitt East to the very end of an exciting three set loss last week. He says the wins and losses right now are not indicative of the progress the squad has made, even those important numbers have improved.

  • Somber senior night as teams...

    The Spencer County boys and girls soccer teams have bid their formal farewell to seniors, but they’ve still got a few games left in the season, including opening games of their district tournament that begins next Monday night.

    The squads took a few moments last Thursdsay to honor their seniors between games. For the boys, the ceremony came on the heels of a disappointing 8-1 loss to Bullitt East. Senior Jamie Fleig scored the lone goal for the Bears in the first half, but the visiting Chargers pulled away in the second period for the win.

  • Bears knock down undefeated...

    Bryant Fowler’s 98-yard pass reception that took the Spencer County Bears from their own 1 yard line to the Western Hills 1 yard line to set up the game-winning touchdown with just over a minute left to play Friday night, proved to be the most exciting play in the Bears’ 24-21 win over the previously undefeated and ranked Wolverines. But it wasn’t the biggest play.

  • Grizzlies win first round of...

    SCMS 60 - Bloomfield 6

    Spencer County Middle School hosted Bloomfield Middle Thursday night in the first round of Division I playoffs for the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference. The Grizzlies dominated the game, breaking several school records in the process.

    The most notable being Will Eldridge breaking Errico Smith’s season scoring record, and most points scored in a game. In another record, the Grizzlies had six different players scoring during the night.

  • Grizzlies win regional...

    History was made on Tuesday night as the Spencer County Middle School Grizzly Football team became the first to win a football championship in our county’s brief football history. The Grizzlies defeated the Old Kentucky Home Middle School Wildcats from Nelson County 29-0 to win the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference Division I Championship. OKH had won the MKAC Championship the last three years in a row with their win in 2006 coming over Spencer County in the championship game.

  • PHOTO: Project Graduation

    The Class of 2009 kicked off their fundraising for Project Graduation recently with a bang. Waterford Sports hosted a softball tournament to benefit Project Graduation. Six teams participated and two softball bats were donated and sold. Senior students and parents worked the concession stand and kept score for the day long tournament raising a grand total of $1,700. Special thanks go to Jason Hahn and Larry Gray for their support to the Class of 2009. The seniors are also selling $5 coupon books good for Country-Mart  for $5 back on a purchase of $50.00 or more. 

  • Bears struggle against CAL, lose...

    On a perfect night for football, in front of a large homecoming crowd, it’s hard to imagine the Bears getting off to a better start than they did against Christian Academy of Louisville as Erico Smith took the opening kick off up the middle, hit a gap, then escaped from the mass enroute to a 86-yard touchdown. But perfection didn’t last as miscues and missed opportunities paved the way for CAL to leave Taylorsville Friday night with a 41-28 victory.

  • Cross country performs well at...

         The Spencer County Cross Country team performed well in the rural setting of the Nelson County Hillbilly Run on October 4th.  This was the tenth annual running of the “shoes optional” event.

         In the cool early morning temperatures, Laura Klotz led SCHS in the 3.1 mile girls JV race, placing 7th in 22:24.  Whitney O’Dell placed 11th in 23:15, and Bethany Crews 28th in 24:54.

  • Playing close is no longer good...

    New age. Kentucky football old-timers have to love it when Rich Brooks gruffs up, turns pit bull after a loss, any loss. The Wildcats boss did his Schwartzkopf best growl & bark after seeing the Alabama game film.

    Three Crimson Tide turnovers produced nothing. Grrrrr.

    Offensive line failed to open a crack for tiny Tony Dixon, and quarterback Michael Hartline had barely a nanosecond to deliver passes to pass droppers dressed up as pass receivers. Grrrrrr.

  • UK Bluegrass Boardfest...

    UK Bluegrass Boardfest Collegiate Challenge hosted by University of Kentucky Wakeboard/ Water Ski Club and Kentucky Boatworks-MasterCraft dealer pulled 45 college students representing 15 different schools. This was the first ever college student only Wakeboard Tournament hosted by the University of Kentucky Wakeboard Club. The tournament was a huge success for the Club.
