  • SCHS track athletes qualify for...


    Several members of the Spencer County Track team have advanced to the State Track meet this coming Friday following their standout performances last week in regional competition at North Oldham High School.

    Brothers Kadin and Kynan Smith both finished in the top four in the 400 meter dash, with Kadin taking second place and Kynan 4th. Meanwhile, Tabitha Martin qualified in both the 300 hurdles and the 3200 meter run. She finished 2nd in the 300 meters at Regionals and 4th in the 3200 meter run.

  • Standing out in the rain

    I don’t know Adam Butler from, well, Adam. But I’m familiar with the kind of guy he is. I met him for the first time Saturday as he stood out in the rain with young kids as they aimed their. 22 rifles at a target several yards away and fired during the 4-H Shooting Sports event at the Spencer County Fish and Game Club.

  • Lady Bears hit postseason on a...


    The Spencer County Lady Bears softball team ended their regular season on a hot streak as they ripped off seven straight wins to bump their record to 16-13.

    The girls were slated to face off against Anderson County, the top team in the 8th Region in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament on Monday night in Shelbyville.

  • Bears’ bats come alive in two...

    The Spencer County Bears notched two big wins to begin play last week, routing Nelson County in Bardstown 12-5 on Tuesday, and then topping Bullitt Central 13-5 on Thursday in Shepherdsville.

    Blake Lambdin allowed four hits through four innings from the mound, and also delivered a two-run single in a four-run seventh inning to pace the Bears to the victory over Nelson County. Jaret Cannon delivered a strong three innings in relief.

  • SCHS Tennis teams wrap up seasons


    Editor’s note: SCHS Senior Daniel Cooper wrote the following story as part of a mentoring project.

    The Spencer County High School tennis teams played in their last games of the spring season last Monday at the regional competition. Though the final scores did not equal the students’ love for the game, their enjoyment of the sport was clearly expressed in their comments and attitudes.

  • Cheating should not be rewarded

    Nobody likes a cheater. Tom Brady is learning that now that he’s been directly linked to the deflated football scandal that marred the NFL postseason a few months ago.

    One of the top quarterbacks of any era, as well as one of the most successful, Brady now stands to have his reputation permanently marred because of his alleged involvement in doctoring footballs in order to make them easier to throw and catch in freezing weather.

  • Wrestling Bears banquet...


    The SCHS wresting team recently held their awards banquet.

  • Not all sports are must-see

    I didn’t watch the Floyd Mayweather Jr. – Manny Pacquiao fight, but from what I’ve read, seen on Facebook and heard from others, it apparently failed to live up to its billing as a boxing match.

    I’m certainly no boxing aficionado, but many who tune into the matches do so out of a desire to see a pummeling.

    Some former Spencer County High School Bears are setting an impressive pace for the University of the Cumberlands track team.
