  • Same team, different role

     

    It’s been five years since Jacob Snider wore a Spencer County football helmet, but he’s been key in helping the 2015 Bears during a historically impressive season.

    A 2010 graduate of SCHS, Snider returned to the sidelines of his alma mater this fall as a certified athletic trainer and has played a vital role in keeping the Bears remarkably healthy during their 8-1 season so far.

  • Middle School CC excels at meet...

     

    The Spencer County Middle School Cross Country Team had a great showing at the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference meet in LaRue County on October 20th.

    The boys won the overall team championship, while the girls team came in third place out of ten teams competing.

  • Bears back in action Friday,...

    Spencer County’s hope for winning the 4th District title ended last week when Shelby County beat Collins, 44-0. However, the season is far from over.

    The 8-1 Bears will host Henry County Friday night in the final game of the regular season. Kick off is at 7:30 p.m. The Wildcats are having a good season as well, with a 7-2 record. However, they are coming off a 49-0 loss to powerful Louisville Central last week.

  • Deer season off to hot start

     

    Cold air poured into Kentucky over the past weekend and dropped overnight temperatures below freezing across much of the state.

    The cool down didn’t cool off the deer hunting. It’s been hot since early September.

    “Good numbers of deer across the state, coupled with a cool and wet summer and sub-par mast production, means we are ripe for some high harvest numbers,” said Gabe Jenkins, deer and elk program coordinator with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

  • Football musings on a bye week

    A bye week for the Spencer County Bears meant a Friday night free of high school football for me. Sort of.

    My wife and I enjoyed a late night showing of the new movie “Woodlawn” Friday evening. The film is based on the true story of a high school rivalry in the early 1970’s amidst the tension of integration in Birmingham, Alabama.

    A new feature on the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ website at fw.ky.gov is a document detailing the department’s accomplishments toward its Strategic Plan over the last two years under the leadership of Commissioner Gregory K. Johnson.

  • Sports can be more than just a...

    As impressive as the Spencer County Bear’s football season has been, equally inspiring has been the support of the community for the team.

    The latest example came on Friday afternoon as the Bears boarded their buses and headed for their game with North Oldham. Once they made the turn away from school, they began seeing fans standing in a steady rain, holding signs and banners, waving and cheering the team as they made their way north on KY 55 behind a police escort that also included an ambulance and fire trucks.

    Overkill?

  • VOLLEYBALL

     

    The Lady Bears dropped the first game 25-18, came back to get the second by a score of 25-23, and then lost the deciding game narrowly, with a 25-23 score. The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for the Lady Bears, who have steadily improved over the season. The girls were to host Shelby County Monday night and Washington County on Tuesday. They will wrap up the season next week with a home game against North Bullitt on Monday and a trip to Collins on Tuesday.

  • Grizzlies claim title with 20-19...

     

    The Spencer County Middle School Grizzlies won their conference championship last Wednesday with a thrilling 21-19, come-from-behind victory over Bardstown to cap a very successful season.
    First year coach Nathan Greenwell said he encouraged his team to keep playing like they had all year, despite trailing at the half, and finding themselves down 19-7 at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
