Shelby County senior Jordan Webb, a standout for the girls’ golf team, committed earlier this summer to play for the University of Cincinnati.

“It should be fun,” Webb said Saturday after finishing second overall and leading the Rockets to a runner-up finish in their season-opening Classic at Weissinger Hills Golf Course.

The Bearcats finished fourth in the Big East Championship in the spring and had two players selected to the All-Big East team. Cincinnati, though, moved into the American Athletic Conference this summer.

“The coaches are really nice,” Webb said. “[Head] Coach [Janet] Carl knows a lot about golf.”  

Webb said she plans to study accounting at UC.

“They have good academics, it felt like the school just fit me,” she said.  


Golf, golf and more golf

With boys’ and girls’ golf the only high school fall sport going right now, the teams from Collins and Shelby County are in full swing.

The boys’ teams at both schools will play in Anderson County’s Bearcat Classic, which begins at 9 a.m. Saturday at Wild Turkey Trace before playing their first regular-season matches Tuesday. The Rockets will host Kentucky Country Day at Weissinger Hills Golf Course on Tuesday, and the Titans will return to Wild Turkey Trace to play Anderson County. Two days after that, next Thursday, Shelby County will play Collins at Shelbyville Country Club.

Meanwhile Shelby County’s girls’ squad will play at the Pulaski County Invitational, which is slated to begin at noon Saturday at Eagles Nest Country Club in Somerset. Three days later the Rockets play their first match of the season, taking on Scott County at Canewood Golf Course in Georgetown.

The Collins girls are slated to play in the Nelson County Invitational on Saturday at Woodlawn Springs Golf Club in Bardstown two days before they play their first match of the season, hosting Christian Academy of Louisville on Monday afternoon at Shelbyville Country Club.

  • Recent Trinity graduate and boys’ basketball standout Darryl Hicks had surgery Thursday to repair a torn ACL. Hicks, who played his freshman year at Shelby County before transferring to Trinity (where he helped the Shamrocks to the 2012 state title), has signed with Boston College.
  • Former Shelby County High School star and Western Kentucky University basketball standout A.J. Slaughter, who played for the Orlando Magic during the NBA’s recent summer league, leaves this weekend for France and his fourth season of professional basketball overseas. Slaughter will return to France’s Pro A League this season, but he will play for a different team. Last season Slaughter averaged 13.5 points and 3.9 assists for Cholet. This season, though, he will suit up for Chalon. The team’s first game is slated for Oct. 5.
