  • Spalding title has Shelby flavor

    Former SCHS guard Allison Morris said she didn’t expect much from her freshman season at Spalding University.

    “We only had five returning players, and the rest were freshman, and we had two junior transfers,” she said. “I didn’t even really expect us to have a winning season.”

    After the team started 0-3, Morris’ projections seemed accurate.

    But then a funny thing happened. The girls won six in a row, and the season started to look better.

  • Legion team rallies past Morehead, 11-10

    They needed every bit of nine innings and more than three hours, but the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team came back from a 9-1 deficit to beat Morehead, 11-10, on the road Wednesday.

    After jumping out to a 1-0 lead on Justin McCarty’s RBI single in the top of the first, Shelbyville went ice cold.

    Morehead scored nine unanswered runs during the next five innings to grab a seemingly safe lead.

    But Post 37 would not be denied.

    A powerful storm that blew through Central Kentucky just before noon Thursday left Shelby County a little less for wear than some other surrounding counties.
