  • Bears shut out Bullitt East 27-0

    Friday night’s 27-0 shut-out over rival Bullitt East may have been the biggest win in the 10-year-history of the Spencer County High School football program. There have been other milestone moments and wins, but this victory seemed to fire up the crowd, the students, the players and the coaches more than any in the past.

  • COLUMN: WKU, UK gear up for...

    Governor’s Cup Redux is Saturday in Lexington.
    Coming in Week 3, this one has the entertainment value of any season opener and, says here a UK-WKU series is more geographically attractive than any college football game in Jefferson County.
    These days, Western Kentucky is a D-I climber willing to take a thump and donut hole in Tuscaloosa to upgrade its rep and respect; Kentucky is an SEC clinger trying to W wherever it can to get back to middle-of-the-pack.

    Spencer County’s Bradley Reynolds (14) races a Bullitt East player to the ball as Matthew Sieja follows the action.

  • Heartbreak in Hodgenville

    It was heartbreak in Hodgenville on Friday night for the Spencer County Bears as a potentially game-winning 35-yard field goal attempt sailed a little wide to the left with just seconds left on the clock, sending the Bears to a 14-12 loss to LaRue County.

  • Mighty Mights, Juniors bring...

    On Saturday, Aug. 25, the Spencer County Stallions traveled to Okalona to take on the Highview Mustangs at Southern High School. Both the Mighty Might and Junior divisions would play games on a sunny and warm morning.
    First up were the Mighty Mights, led by starting quaterback Brayden Duke. Though the hard-hitting and fast Highview team is always tough, the fast running style of the Stallions was too much to stop. The Stallions scored repeatedly, closing out the fast paced game with a pass from Duke to Wade Hutt for a touchdown, making the final score 31-0.

  • COLUMN: U of L gets its ‘...

    Louisville’s win over Kentucky was so complete that U of L President James Ramsey, out of institutional diplomacy, should have instructed that the handsome Governor’s Cup be kept in its crate Sunday. Taken back to the Howard Schnellenberger football house.
    Or, Dr. Ramsey might have it encased and placed at the feet of John Unitas since it might be on campus awhile.

    Spencer County’s Libby Cox (2) battles a Thomas Nelson High School player during the Lady Bears’ big 13-3 win over the Lady Generals last week.

The girls will be at Oldham County on Wednesday at 7 p.m. and will host Collins next Monday night 7:30.
