  • Volleyball team goes 3-2 in...

    The Lady Bears Volleyball team had a good showing over the weekend at a tournament in Louisville, going 3-2 as they continue to prepare for the postseason.

    Coach Tim Elder said it was an exhausting day with five matches, but winning three of them left the team “feeling like we had made some big improvements.”

    The girls opened with a match against Washington County, winning the first game 25-18, then dropping the second one 21-25. In the deciding game, the girls rallied to take a 25-23 victory.

  • Bears' rally falls short,...

    It hasn’t mattered if the opposition is a 6A or a 1A team, Spencer County has yet to bring their A-game to the field so far this year and the Bears have fallen to 0-5 on the season after a 42-28 loss to Bethlehem Friday night in Bardstown.

    The loss was mostly the product of a very slow start that saw the host Eagles build a 21-0 lead before  the Bears rallied to keep it close until the final minutes.

    The slow start surprised Bears Coach Wes Napper, who said his players seemed to be ready at kickoff.

  • Despite loss, Lady Bears still...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears suffered a 5-2 loss on the road at North Oldham last week, but coach Charlie Traughber was pleased by much of what he saw from his young team that continues to prove it belongs to be mentioned among the elite in the region.

    The Lady Bears have shot to the top of the 8th region soccer standings, but they knew that last Tuesday’s game against North Oldham would be a good measuring stick as they would be facing a perennial state power.

  • COLUMN: Dry those tears sports...

    It was a trail of tears, last week.

    Randy Moss whined in Boston.

    Pete Rose bawled in Cincinnati.

    Bruce Pearl sniveling in Knoxville.

    Indiana media somberly noted, 10th anniversary of Douglas MacArthur’s firing by Harry Truman. Or was that Bob Knight by Myles Brand?

    Big Blue Nation was bellyaching about Enes Kanter’s amateur status.

    And, Lee Todd’s lips quivered in Lexington.


    Millionaire Moss’s whine isn’t worth elaboration.

  • First place Lady Bears about to...

    Just how good can the Spencer County Lady Bears soccer team really be? They’re sporting an 8-2 record, they sit atop the 8th Region standings and they are averaging over six goals a game.

    They likely got an answer to that question Tuesday night when they were scheduled to travel to Goshen to take on perennial power North Oldham, who is second in the region with an 8-2-1 record.

    Coach Charles Traughber’s girls were riding a 7 game winning streak which continued last Wednesday with a 10-0 victory over Ft. Knox on the road.

  • Boys soccer team on 3-game...

    Spencer County’s boys soccer team picked up two wins last week and have a modest three game winning streak following a 3-1 victory over Fort Knox on Wednesday and then a 3-0 shutout over Henry County on Thursday.

    Coach Paul Taylor said Wednesday’s road victory at Fort Knox was not a particularly good game, but it counts as a victory.

    “Sometimes it’s good just to win an ugly game and get out of there,” he said, noting how the game was extremely physical with several yellow cards being handed out.
