  • Lady Bears best Atherton, 9-4

     

    A five-run second inning gave the Spencer County Lady Bears all the cushion they would need in a 9-4 victory over Atherton at home last Friday afternoon.

    After freshman pitcher Emily Cole retired the Lady Rebels in the first, the Lady Bears came to the plate and 7th grader Ally Alexander tripled to right field, and later scored on a RBI single by senior Kendall Horn to stake Spencer County to a 1-0 lead.

  • Tournament at SCMS

  • Calipari defends decision not to...

     

    Kentucky coach John Calipari spent a lot of time explaining last week why his team no longer plays Indiana annually, both before and after the Hoosiers beat his team. He readily admitted he did not want to play in Bloomington and talked about deciding what worked best for his program.

  • Middle school soccer teams win

     

    The middle school soccer season is off to a good start with both the boys and girls team picking up victories last week.

    The boys got their first win of the season, topping Mt. Washington Middle School 4-1 at home. Taylor Porter paced the Grizzlies with two goals, while Donny Wilson and Jason Nichols also scored one goal each.

    In girls action, the Lady Grizzlies earned a 1-1 tie with Marion County last Monday, and then later in the week took a 7-1 victory over Taylor County.

  • FINS a good way to share the joy...

     

    Most anglers are beneficiaries of the “pay it forward” philosophy. That is to say, somebody once took time to introduce them to fishing.

    Spring is an opportune time to further the legacy, and any of the 40 lakes across Kentucky that comprise the Fishing in Neighborhoods (FINs) lineup make great places to teach a beginner the basics.

  • League champions

     

    A group of fourth and fifth graders from Spencer County recently won their tournament in the Nelson County Youth League.

  • Ulis leads Kentucky to SEC...

     

    Kentucky freshman Isaac Humphries says as much as he watches Tyler Ulis, he sometimes still is surprised by what his 5-9 teammate does for Kentucky.

    “He’s just amazing. He’s so much fun to watch,” said Humphries. “We all see him do some incredible things, and then we see something new. You just never know what he’s going to do.”
    Texas A&M assistant coach Rick Stansbury, a Kentucky native, calls Ulis “special” for many reasons, and he was certainly that against the Aggies Sunday.

  • Young talent key for Lady Bears

     

    First year coach Jimmy Schmidt has a lot of unanswered questions about his Spencer County Lady Bears softball team heading into the season that begins this week, but he’s realistic about his expectations without setting the bar too low.

    “To know if we are rebuilding or if we can compete right away is still to be determined,” said Schmidt.

    He said the district has some good, veteran squads, while his team has a lot of youth. “To compete in the district right away would be a huge compliment to our players,” he said.
