  • Lady Bears battling a five loss...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears softball team is sporting only a 2-6 record on the season, but they’re competing well against some tough competition in the early going.

    Last week, the girls dropped three games, but all of them by three runs or less.

    On Monday, the Lady Bears traveled to Owen County and suffered a tough 4-3 loss. They then returned home to square off against North Oldham on Wednesday, when they fell 3-0, and then dropped a 2-0 decision to Oldham County the next evening.

  • Tough games ahead

    The Spencer County Grizzlies baseball team is moving in the right direction after some early season loses.  Over the last five games, the Grizzlies have played some of their best baseball of the season. 

    After losing to Franklin County, the Grizzlies’ only loss was a heartbreaker to St. Joseph in a tough 3-4 defeat.  The Grizzlies have a tough week ahead with home games Thursday and Saturday with an away game at OKH Friday.  All home games start at 5:15 p.m.  Please come support your SCMS Grizzlies.

  • Softball Grizzlies off to a...

    It’s hard to imagine a better start to a season, much less a better start for a brand new program. But after Monday night’s 18-0 shutout of Bardstown, the Spencer County Middle School softball team stands a perfect 2-0 in its first season.

    They opened up their season with a 14-0 victory over Bernheim at Waterford Park. Two wins, 32 runs scored, no runs allowed and pitchers Christen Housley and Kelly Wheeler have combined for eight innings of no-hit ball.

  • Learning from the pros

    Spencer County Youth Football Association (SCYFA) players had the opportunity to learn from the pros while attending the KJ Fundamental Football Clinic last month.

    Keith “KJ” Joseph and his staff share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the game with dozens of boys ages 5 to 13. The young players not only learned about fundamentals of the game, but also participated special team sessions for running backs, receivers, linemen and defensive backs.

  • 24-10 crusher

    The Spencer County Bears baseball team put up numbers like a football team Saturday when they traveled to Trimble County and delivered a 24-10 crushing to the Raiders. The victory stopped a two-game skid and improved the Bears to 5-11 on the season.

    After returning from a spring break trip to Ft. Walton Beach that saw the Bears go 1-3, Spencer County continued to struggle last week.

  • High five

    In a time of Tea Party fever, one-and-dones, Derby handicapping experts and more show-me-the-money, Sport stepped into the breech last week. Gave us a high-five (and half) heart string highlights.

    1. No. 42. Across Major League Baseball every player on every team wore No. 42, honoring Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson.

    2. Lefty. At the Masters, champion Phil Mickelson and wife Amy touched our hearts with a nationally televised hug taking attention away from media’s latest kick-that-dog-again!, Tiger Woods.

  • Power-lifting champ

    Cody Jaggers competed at The NASA High School Power Lifting National Championship in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on March 27-28.

    Jaggers competed in several 148 lb. weight class events and finished 4th overall in the nation in his weight class. Jaggers also finished 3rd in the power press competition and 2nd in the power sports competition.

    Jaggers was recently part of the Kentucky All-Star team that finished 2nd in the nation. The team consisted of two lifters each from Fort Knox and Green County and Cody from Spencer County.
