  • Reigning “Diamond...

    The 14u Kentucky Thunder softball team attended the NASF “Diamond Divas” over Labor Day weekend in Mooresville, Indiana.  They competed against several other 14u and 16u teams from numerous states and even countries!  Kentucky Thunder was the 14u champions, winning the final game against Regina Gold from Saskatchewan, Canada on Monday with a score of 14-4.

  • Bears drop another one

    Last week, the Spencer County Bears were unable to match points with the big boys from 6A Bullitt Central. On Friday, they learned that the little guys are plenty good too, as they dropped a 25-7 decision at 1A Frankfort.

    Of course, Frankfort is one of the top small schools in the state and Bears’ Head Coach Matt Powenski said he still expects good things from his team but said they must learn from their early-season mistakes.

  • Junior Stallions win big

    On Saturday September 6 the Spencer County Junior Stallions defeated the Fairdale Bulldogs 39-7.  The Stallions were lead by quarterback, Tanner Young, who was 5 of 5 passing including a two yard run, three TD passes, and a pass for extra point. Running back Nathan Conard was the recipient of two Young TD passes and a defensive interception for a third TD on the day.  Tight end, Caleb Sullivan scored twice on a young pass and a long run from scrimmage late in the game.

  • Hilltopper Riggs

    Last year, Chris Riggs was playing football on a field without permanent seating and that had just gotten lights that would allow night games. If all goes as planned next season, Riggs could be playing a game in front of 107,000 people when his Western Kentucky Hilltoppers visit Tennessee.

    The 2008 Spencer County graduate has turned a stellar high school football career into an opportunity to play Division 1 football at WKU as he was accepted as a walk-on recently and is currently playing on the scout team.

  • Bears unable to recover mistakes

    First, it was the rain that came in waves, enough to delay Spencer County’s season-opening football game against Bullitt Central by 30 minutes. Once play began, it was the mistakes that began accumulating for the Bears as they basically spotted the visiting Cougars to a two-touchdown lead in the opening minutes on their way to a 34-7 loss.

  • Grizzlies take down two foes

    SCMS 14, North Oldham 6

    The Spencer County Middle School Grizzly Football team travelled to Goshen on Tuesday night to take on North Oldham Middle.

    The game started with North Oldham driving down the field surprisingly easy. They would score on a 2-yard run off tackle and the extra point to take the lead 7-0.

  • Soccer: Girls tie, boys lose

    The Spencer County boys and girls soccer teams will get a bit of a break this week after completing the first part of their schedules Tuesday.

    The girls have comprised a record of two wins, no losses and one tie following a see-saw affair at home against Western Hills Thursday that ended in a stalemate.

    Western Hills struck first with a goal at the 15:47 mark to take a 1-0 lead, which is where the score stood at the half.

    In the second half, senior Shelby Pfeiffer got the Lady Bears on the board with a goal of her own, to knott the score at 1-1.
