  • High hopes for local hoops

     

    The Spencer County Bears and Lady Bears both appear ready to make some noise in district play this year and both head into the second half of their season on high notes.

    The Bears have been a big surprise, racing out to an 8-4 record, their best win-loss mark to begin a new year since the 2010-11 season that saw them advance all the way to the 8th Region finals.

  • Focus continues on Asian carp

  • Bears nearly slay Dragons

     

    Earlier this month, the Spencer County Bears suffered their worst lost of the season, dropping a 93-64 decision to a very good South Oldham team. The two teams met again last Thursday night in the finals of the Nick Burns Memorial Tournament hosted by Spencer County, and this time the Dragons barely escaped with a three-point win.

  • Despite losses, Lady Bears...

     

    Salvaging a win over Waggener Thursday night after four straight days of games, the Spencer County Lady Bears took a few lumps but hopefully learned a few lessons during their participation in the Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament at Bullitt East last week, despite going 1-3.

    Spencer County bounced back after three straight losses with a 68-29 victory over the Lady Wildcats to move to 4-6 on the season. While that lopsided win helped their record, it was their play in the three losses that might prove most helpful as the season progresses.

  • Bears win third straight game

     

    Despite a lack of size and a lot of youth and inexperience, the Spencer County Bears are proving to be a fun team to watch and thus far, a successful one.

    Following a 62-55 victory over visiting Jeffersontown on Friday night, the Bears are now 5-3 on the year, and winners of three straight.

  • SCMS Dance Team

     

    The Spencer County Middle School Dance Team placed 1st this weekend at their second competition of the season, the WinterJam Dance Competition in Lexington, KY. They also received the award for “Most Entertaining.” This is an award that is decided on by the judges and is only given to one dance team in the entire competition.

  • Girls notch milestone district...

     

    It had been six years since the Spencer County Lady Bears had beaten a district opponent. Last Tuesday, that losing streak was snapped as the girls went on the road and defeated Shelby County 56-45 in what was truly a signature win for a program on the rise.

    When the buzzer sounded at the end of the game, you could sense this victory meant more than most, and Coach Brandy Scott affirmed that jubilation continued into the locker room.

  • Taylorsville Lake is hot spot...

    Winter is a season of nesting for many Kentuckians. Hot cocoa and a book by the fireplace is more appealing than getting outside in the wet and cold.

    However, for those who enjoy solitude and having lakes completely to themselves, winter is the best time to get outside and fish. Contrary to the stubborn belief of many anglers, fish bite all winter long.
