  • EARLIER: Top riders, horses in Shelby, too

    International teams from five countries will converge in Shelbyville on Tuesday for the start of the 2010 Saddle Seat Equitation World Cup, in which the United States squad will hope to avenge a silver-medal finish two years ago.

  • East beats West again

    Another week, another last-minute victory for East Middle over rival West.

    This time, however, it was in the district tournament opener, and East won, 30-22, with the same sort of late heroics that had given the Missiles a 26-20 victory last week.

    Missiles quarterback Britton Woolwine completed a touchdown pass with 1 minute, 33 seconds to go to seal the victory, but the offense was led by running back Trenton Lafollette, who rushed for three touchdowns.

  • 7th Street brainstorm yields variety of ideas

    Picture driving to Clear Creek Park to watch a game or get some exercise.

    You head north on 7th Street, with a commercial/arts district where the railroad tracks are now, a small commercial area in front of the jail and roundabouts at the intersections with Eminence Pike and in the park's entrance.

    The street is widened with a tree-filled median in the middle, no cars parked on the curbs and no driveways poking out.

  • EARLIER: Collins 41, North Bullitt 13: 2nd-half defense powers rout

    The old adage “a good defense is the best offense” has taken on a new meaning for the Collins High School football team, which handily defeated host North Bullitt on Friday night, 41-13, in a Class 4A District-4 contest.

    The Titans (6-1, 3-1) broke open a tight game in the second half as their defense scored twice and set up a third touchdown against the Eagles (3-3, 1-1), who managed only 20 total yards of offense after the intermission.

  • EMS 26, WMS, 20: Late pass wins game


    The 2010 school year began a new rivalry in Shelby County, but a very old rivalry, one as old as many residents can remember, took place Tuesday night at Collins Stadium, where East and West middle schools met for the first time this millennia away from Robert Doyle Stadium.


    And this time East won, 26-20, when Missiles quarterback Britton Woolwine engineered a game-winning drive that ended with a 29-yard laser pass to Trenton Lafollette for a touchdown with 37.5 seconds to play.


  • SCHS: Hudgens takes advantage of opportunity

    When senior standout Logan Forrest was shelved with a shoulder injury in the first quarter of the Shelby County High School football team’s opener on Aug. 20, sophomore Jacob Hudgens received an immediate message: Welcome to the big leagues.

    Hudgens vaulted from back-up to starter at both linebacker and offensive guard for the Rockets, whose roster already was depleted by the split to a two-school system that yielded the new Collins High School.
