Collins senior standout Aaliyah Wells has been selected to play in the 2013 Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches’ East/West Senior All-Star Game.

Wells, who averaged 20.1 points and 10 rebounds for the Titans in their recently completed 16-15 season, will play for the West squad (which will be made up of players in Regions 1-8) during the March 16 game at Warren Central High School in Bowling Green.

She and Walton-Verona’s Courtney Sandlin will represent the 8th Region. Sandlin was named the KABC’s 8th Region’s Player of the Year earlier this week, and Wells finished second.


Bruner commits to Spalding

Shelby County senior Kam Bruner has committed to play baseball at Spalding University.

“I would like to thank [Rockets] coach [Bart] Rudy [Roettger], [Devin] Hicks, [Mike] Moore, JR Wiley and Coach [Roy] Bailey, which all I’ve played for,” said Bruner, who hit .431 with three home runs and 40 RBIs while scoring 30 runs for the Rockets last season.

He added that Roettger has “done a lot for me.”


Webb commits to Bellarmine

Shelby County senior Taylor Webb has committed to run track and cross country for Bellarmine University and will sign with the Knights on Monday in the SCHS library.

Webb finished fifth as a sophomore and 12th as a junior at the Class AA state cross-country meet but missed this past season after having hip surgery. She is returning to the track, though, this spring after last year finishing 13th in the 3,200 at the state track meet.


Thomas rolling

Shelby County sophomore Madison Thomas finished second to reigning Kentucky high school girls’ golf state champ Anna Hack in the Golfweek Junior Tour’s Midwest Region spring season-opening event, which took place March 3 at GreyStone Golf Club in Dickson, Tenn., just outside Nashville.

Thomas fired a 2-under-par 70, one shot behind Hack, in the girls’ 15-19 division. She had six birdies in her round.

This weekend’s event is at Champion Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville.
