  • Kessinger looks to better last year

    Last year’s KHSAA State Swimming & Diving meet was a bit of an awakening for Collin Kessinger.

    Kessinger, then a sophomore at Shelby County, was nervous and unsure about how she would stack up against the best in the state.

    It didn’t take long for Kessinger to prove that she belonged, though. She trimmed more than 10 seconds off her regional times during the two days, on her way to finishing in seventh-place in the 100-yard breaststroke and in ninth in the 200 individual medley, even if she didn’t always believe what she was seeing.

  • Cornerstone boys' JV wins KCAA state tourney

    The Cornerstone Christian boys’ basketball junior varsity team captured the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association Junior Varsity Tournament, which it hosted last weekend.

    The Bulldogs beat Majesty, 40-22, in the first round, then beat Somerset, 29-26, in overtime in the semifinals before beating Wesley, 29-26, in the title game.

    Cornerstone’s Jacob Tipton was named the most valuable player of the tourney. He was joined on the all-tournament team by fellow Bulldogs Nate Oates and Christian Lopesilvero. 

  • Titans’ romp brings Rockets full circle

    LAWRENCEBURG – The Shelby County girls’ basketball team had one of the best 180-degree turnarounds in the state during the regular season.

    However an outstanding defensive effort by cross-town rival-Collins ended the Rockets’ season in almost the exact same way it had started – a complete 360 – Wednesday night.

  • Second-half verse, same as the first (2)

    LAWRENCEBURG – Collins’ second-half success against its cross-town rival continued Wednesday night.

    The Titans outscored Shelby County, 53-32, after intermission to beat the Rockets, 88-72, in the 30th District semifinals at Anderson County.

    It was Collins’ third victory over Shelby this season and its biggest, given that it moved the Titans into tonight’s district championship game against Anderson County and the 8th Region tournament next week.

  • Brotherly love inspires Troutman

    A little sibling rivalry helped Michael Troutman get back into the swimming pool.

    Troutman, a sophomore at Collins who was motivated by his older brother’s second-place finish at the state swim meet last year, jumped back into the water this fall after a more than 3-year absence.

    This weekend Troutman, who is qualified in four events, will try to rival his brother’s finish at the KHSAA State Swimming & Diving Championships at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium. Preliminaries begin at 10 a.m. today and tomorrow.
