    The holidays are over, we’re in the middle of a brutal arctic cold spell, and  the early January doldrums can lend way to cabin fever.

    If you’re needing to get out of the house, Friday night affords you a perfect opportunity to enjoy a few hours of really good basketball while supporting our local teams in Spencer County.

    The Bears and Lady Bears will host Collins in a 30th District doubleheader, with the girls tipping off at 6 p.m. and the boys following at around 7:30 p.m.

  • Lady Bears finish third in...


  • Bears look impressive in Fla.


    The Bears knew two things heading into Christmas break: they can shoot the three ball and they have some young players who will be key this season.

    Game 1:

    It did not take long for Spencer County to find their rhythm in Florida. Thirty seconds into the game freshman Sam Conley got the Bears going with an And-1.  Soon after, Jackson Cole started heating up from behind the arc and a Sam Conley to Jake Whitlock connection for a layup gave the Bears an early lead over the Hornets from Roswell, Georgia.

  • Winter trout fishing

    Consistency is a trait all anglers love in a body of water. Most lakes and rivers in Kentucky go through seasonal temperature swings that make fishing tough during the hottest and coldest months of the year.

    The Cumberland River below Lake Cumberland fishes as consistently as any body of water in Kentucky. The water temperatures of the Cumberland River at Burkesville ranged from 55 degrees Dec. 11 to 53.5 degrees Dec. 14 to around 53 degrees Dec. 18.

  • Wrestling team win matches


    The Spencer County High School wrestling team got their season underway with a win over Nelson County recently. Bears who won their matches with pins included Bradley Maines, Alex Jackson and Colton Kessinger. Jeremiah Anderson, Jacoby “Stump” Yancey (pictured), Nathan Wescott and Austin Ernspiker also recorded victories. The team took victories against Bardstown and Ft. Knox as well to start their season off on a good note.

  • Lady Bears rebound from loss to...


    The Spencer County Lady Bears bounced back from a disappointing opening round loss to John Hardin High School in the Bardstown Holiday Classic, to win two games in the tournament, improving their record to 7-3 on the season.

    The Lady Bears battled John Hardin tough for most of the night Wednesday, and actually led to begin the fourth quarter, but was outscored 11-0 during a crucial span in that period, eventually losing 54-41.
