  • Boys track looks to win region

    When the boys track team arrives at Fern Creek for the 8th Region Championships Wednesday, they won't only be looking to improve on last season's fourth-place finish. No, they'll be trying to win the meet, and the possibility is hardly a long shot.

    "I feel pretty good as far as an overall team," Coach George Cottrell said. "This is the first time since I've been doing track here [10 years] that we have a legitimate shot to win the region.

    "This year we've had a lot of things come together."

  • EARLIER: Soler Jiminez advances to region finals

    FRANKFORT – Shelby County's Antonio Soler Jiminez settled into a patient game just in time to nick a formidable Andrew Barrett of Bullitt East, 6-2, 6-3, Wednesday in the semifinals of the 8th Region Tennis Tournament at Franklin County High School.

    “I thought he didn’t play very well. He’d be the first to tell you,” Coach Jerry Buchert said. “But he won. It’s a tribute to his game.”

     All those trailers are sold

    The few trailers that remain in Breighton Circle should be out by this week. All the trailers were sold during the auction, held by H. Barry Smith Auctioneers, on May 15 and were supposed to be out of the lot by last Friday, but Jimmy Willard, co-owner of the company, said a few buyers and Internet bidders needed a little extra time.

  • Calvin Schmidt: 1927-2010

     With the passing of Calvin Schmidt, Shelby County has lost a prominent citizen, a benefactor, but most of all, a friend.

  • Paul, Conway run away with Shelby

    Rand Paul’s romp to the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate got a big boost in Shelby County, and the county helped state Attorney General Jack Conway surge ahead early on the Democratic side.

    These two-horse races had been called close at times, but that didn’t pan out in Shelby or elsewhere in Kentucky – at least as far as Paul was concerned.

  • EARLIER: Young softball team coming into its own

    Many of the SCHS softball team's early losses had to do with its youth.

    The Rockets have six upperclassmen, but a couple key positions (like pitcher and designated hitter) have been filled by sophomores and freshmen.

    So it took a while for Shelby (16-13, 2-2) to gel as a team, to gain confidence individually.

  • EARLIER: Top-seeded Rockets riding surge

    Shelby County's 7-2 defeat by St. Xavier on April 22 may seem like just another loss in a 20-10 season, but that game marked a turning point for the Rockets.

    Since then, Shelby has gone on an 8-1 run in which it has outscored its opponents, 79-23, and improved its batting average to .331 and its on-base percentage to .432.

    The changes have put the Rockets just where they'd like to be going into the 30th District Tournament on Monday.
