  • Bears flat against Cougars

    The Spencer County Bears will kickoff the 2008 season this Friday night when they play host to Bullitt Central at 7:30. It will be an opportunity to not only avenge a loss from last season, but to make up for a lackluster performance in their final preseason scrimmage last week.

    If the Bears are to get their season off on the right track, they’ll need to hit the field fired up against the Cougars, something that was not evident when they hosted Montgomery county for a scrimmage last Friday.

  • Reasons why autumn is best...

    Next big thing: The Governor’s Cup.

    Kentucky and Louisville at sold-out Papa John’s Stadium on a Sunday afternoon in August. How’s that sound? Not quite right?

    College football is a Saturday thing. And rivals ought to clash when air is crisp, player helmets are scarred and covered in decals and big ole bull rush tackles are walking wounded, unshaven and in a bad mood. After Thanksgiving.

    America’s sacred college football afternoon is forever altered by television and PR departments.

  • Grizzlies off to a good season

    The Spencer County Middle School Grizzly Football team has hit the ground running this season. After two very close losses to Russell County Middle School (28-14) and Henry County Middle (22-20 in Overtime), the Grizzlies were able to get back to their winning ways this week. A 35-0 conference win versus Bloomfield at home on Tuesday and an exciting 6-0 overtime win versus Christian Academy of Louisville on Saturday. Our record is now 2-2, 1-0.

    The boys soccer team improved to 2-3 on the season Monday night with a 5-3 win over Henry County. The Bears lost their first three on the season, including a 10-0 shutout loss at highly-touted Oldham County and a tough 2-0 loss to Owen County, but bounced back with a 6-0 victory over Carroll County on Saturday and Monday’s win over Henry County.

  • 16U girls named East Kentucky...

    Spencer County’s 16U All-Star softball team tried on the new title this past weekend and decided they kind of like it.

    They are now known as the East Kentucky Babe Ruth State Champions and the win means the team will be heading to Marinette, Wisconsin today to compete in regionals. If they advance, this small band of dedicated players could take the national stage at the Babe Ruth World Series in Pittsfield, Massachusetts this August.
