  • SHELBY COUNTY FISCAL COURT: County to lower property taxes


  • SHELBYVILLE CITY COUNCIL: Property tax drops for first time in 10 years


  • State Titles Are On The Horizon

    With my first season of covering fall sports for The Sentinel-News just beginning, I’m excited for both autumn and to get a taste of what both Shelby County and Collins have to offer athletically.

    When I began working here back in May, and was only able to capture a faint glimpse of what each school could do in baseball, softball, and track, although I was impressed with the immense amount of talent I saw around the county.
    But to say I’m excited to see the schools back out on the fields and courts is an understatement.

  • Titans ready to air it out on offense

    Building depth was the name of the game for the Collins High School football team last season, as it had six freshmen and 14 sophomores on the varsity roster when the season began.

    Head coach Jerry Lucas hopes that getting younger players in game situations over the last two years will make the Titans a deeper team that does not worry about its athletes getting fatigued.

  • SC’s power rushing attack is reloaded

    With the loss of talented running backs Malik Manica and Michael Perry, Shelby County High School will be looking for new ways to generate offense this upcoming season.

    The return of senior running back Brandon Davis will lessen the blow and Davis will spearhead Shelby’s ground attack but he’ll have plenty of help.

  • Titans are deep, young, talented

    This season will be a rebuilding year for the Collins boys’ golf team. The Titans lost three of its top players, Jake Coleman and Jonathan Overstreet, due to graduation, and will rely on an experienced junior class to lead the squad.

    The Titans currently have a deep 12-man roster heading into this season, and its head coach is excited about this year’s team.

  • Young Rockets are growing up

    The Shelby County High School boys’ golf team was a very young team last season, and while the gained a lot of experience in 2015, 2016’s squad will be young as well.

    “Last season, we were incredibly young,” coach Casey Page said. “We needed to grow up and get better, and I think we did that.”

    The Rockets lost just one player to graduation from last year’s squad and will feature just one senior again this year, but Page has been pleased with this team’s progress.

  • Collins taking aim at regions top squads

    Collins High School captured its first-ever girls’ golf trophy last season when the team finished first at the Henry County Invitational. The confidence gained from that milestone helped the Lady Titans finish fourth in the regular season standings.

    “We were 10-0 in dual matches last season,” coach Matt Cockrell said. “We finished fourth place in the region regular season, and we were twenty-five shots away from taking second place in the region tournament.”

  • Rockets eyeing titles

    In the early goings, the Shelby County girls’ golf team has been a powerhouse. Returning golfers Lilly Young, Jennifer Fuqua, and Faith Wiley have already helped propel the Rockets to a pair of first-place finishes.

    The team most recently took first at the South Warren Invitational over the weekend, shooting a 316, 16 strokes ahead of second-place finisher Green County.

  • Rockets are young, inexperienced but talented

    After graduating 11 seniors from last year’s team, the Shelby County High School boys’ soccer team is building for the future.

    Last season was the first for head coach Michael Hornback, who said the experienced squad of last season set a high bar for this year’s team.

    “We were an older, more experienced team last season,” Hornback said. “We graduated eleven seniors, and we’ve got a lot of talent left on the team to replace them.”
