  • Shelby drops opener to Mercer

    The Shelby County High School boys’ basketball team could not overcome a rough first quarter in which the Rockets scored just nine points en route to a 78-59 loss to Mercer County at home on Monday.

    SCHS (0-1) outscored the Titans (1-0) in both the second and third quarters, but the 26-9 deficit after the first was just too much to overcome.

  • Collins set to take on familiar face Friday

    The Collins boys’ basketball team will take the floor for the first time this season on Friday when Bullitt East visits the school, but the Titans are likely to be familiar with the Chargers.

    The Chargers’ new head coach, Jason Couch, was coach of Shelby County High School for four seasons from 2012-15, so both squads should have a good idea of what to expect in the opener.

  • Cats, Cards live up to hype

    The matchup between the universities of Kentucky and Louisville was one of the most exciting and unexpected games I have witnessed all season at any level of football, and I had absolutely no dog in the fight.

    Over the weekend, myself and roughly 50 strangers sat huddled in the lobby of a Chicago hotel, keeping an eye on the multiple television screens showing Saturday’s Michigan-Ohio State game.

  • Farming for Christmas

    On Thanksgiving Day, Ron Stella will be camped out on the Christmas tree farm he operates with Vivek Sarin, waiting for the first customers of the season.

    Well, not exactly the first, as the very first tree cut from the Shelby Christmas Tree Farm was taken down on Monday and will grace the grounds of the Governor’s Mansion in Frankfort, said Sarin.

  • Basic plan in place for holiday traffic at mall

    Simpsonville and The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass are prepped and ready to handle increased traffic flow starting today and throughout the holiday season.

    The pattern employed in the past has been pretty basic said Chip Minnis Simpsonville Police chief.

  • Learning is child’s play

    Thanks to a group of volunteers, dozens of children that attend the Dorman Preschool Center can now experience hands on learning outdoors.

    Laurie Cottrell, executive director of the Dorman Center, said she is pleased with the new combination outdoor classroom/playground.

    “In the last two or three years, the Dorman Preschool has been moving toward the Reggio Emilia [outdoor learning] approach and with that, also, a lot of nature is brought into the classroom and a lot of time being spent outdoors,” she said.

  • Shelby, Collins players tabbed for all-star game

    What have been solid seasons for both Shelby County and Collins high schools in football has culminated in the two schools sending a combined four players to the Best of the Bluegrass All-Star football game.

    For Shelby County, center Hayden Tedford, running back Brandon Davis, and kicker Josh Edwards were named to the Louisville-area team on Nov. 14.

    Tedford came into the season as the only returning starter on the offensive line from a year ago, and helped the Rockets pave the way offensively this season.

  • Petty named to all-area team

    Following a season in which she put together one solid performance after another, Collins High School cross country runner Madeline Petty has been named to the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Area 4 team.

    “I’m really proud of myself for getting back to that level from last year,” Petty said. “[Cross-country] is a big part of my life, so I’ve put in a lot of work for it.”

  • Ready to tip in the Bluegrass

    Now that the fall sports season has concluded, the colder months are here – and by extension, so are both Collins and Shelby County’s basketball seasons.

    During my time in college, I was one of two beat writers for the men’s basketball team, but the sports culture here in the state of Kentucky is a whole different animal than it was in the Peach State.
