  • Boys soccer confident as...

    The Spencer County Bears boys soccer team enters the 30th District Tournament this week knowing they can play with anyone.

    They compiled a record of 7-7-3 on the season, with six of their losses being by just one goal, including the regular season finale, a 1-0 loss at Male.

    “Those close losses aren’t frustrating when you look at the big picture,” said Coach DeWayne Mason. “We are competing and we are doing well. A few of those games were lost because of small mistakes,” he said.

  • Bobby Keith was a Kentucky hoops...

    I sat in my car and listened on the radio to the thrilling conclusion of the 1987 Sweet Sixteen boys high school basketball tournament. Clay County, led by junior Richie Farmer, bested a talented Ballard team led by Alan Houston in overtime, 76-73, and for the first time in three decades, the State Title returned to the mountains.

  • Men’s Rookie of the Week

     

    Kyle Alexander, a 2016 graduate of Spencer County High School, and a freshman at Thomas More College, was recently honored as the Men’s Rookie of the Week for his recent performance on the golf team. Kyle tied for 13th at the recent Dan Quayle Collegiate Classic, hosted by DePauw, combining for a two-round score of 154 (74-79)

    Last month, he also tied for third in the PAC conference with a two-day total of 147.

  • Cross Country competes

    On the Saturday of October 8, the cross country team traveled to their last 5k meet of the season before regionals, the Titan Cross Country Classic. The team is working hard to better their times before they really count.  

  • Lady Bears Volleyball

  • Lady Bears fall to Anderson

     

    The girls are 7-12 on the season, following a district loss to Anderson County last week, 3-1. The girls played four close sets with the Lady Bearcats, losing the first, 25-22, winning the second 25-23, dropping the third 25-21, and the final set, 25-18.

    The girls will be busy this week, and had a  home game scheduled for Monday night against  Whitefield Academy, and were to travel to Western Hills on Tuesday.  They will play at Bullitt East on Tuesday and East Jessamine next Monday.

  • Bears split two games last week

     

  • Bears corral Mustangs, 21-13

     

    It wasn’t pretty, but the Spencer County Bears held on for a 21-13 victory over North Oldham Friday night, to improve to 6-1 on the season, and 2-0 in the district.

    Many may have expected a more lopsided score against the winless Mustangs, but North Oldham brought a pretty stingy defense to Taylorsville and the Bears managed to do just enough to make it a victorious homecoming night.

  • A win is a win

    In 2009, Spencer County entered the 3A playoffs with just three wins on the season and opened postseason play by traveling to the heart of Louisville to take on Central, a team that was beginning a dominant run that culminated in three straight state titles. The Bears lost, 56-36, but it was probably their best game of the season and despite the fact that it ended the season, there was a sense that the Bears had claimed a moral victory of sorts.
