  • Post 37 defeats Oldham in midweek matchup

    Shelbyville Post 37 returned to its winning ways, taking advantage of poor pitch placement early by its opponent and riding that momentum to a 7-3 win over Oldham Post 39 at Bellarmine University on Wednesday night.

    Shelby jumped out ahead early, using a sharp eye at the plate to draw three walks in the fourth inning, taking a 2-0 lead.

    From there, Post 37 plated five additional runs over the sixth and eighth innings combined, putting the game out of reach, and earning the much-needed victory for Shelbyville.

    “I think it was pretty awesome, I was unaware I was even being considered at first,” Shipley said. “The [sports information] person at Murray said he put me out for the award, and he knew a little about it, and then my mom sent me an article saying I had won.”

  • Young qualifies for Big I Nationals

    Following a decorated high school golf career as a member of the Shelby County High School team, former Rocket Lilly Young has now earned a spot in the Big I National Tournament to be held later this month.

    Young will travel to the Annadale Golf Course in Madison, Miss. for her final competition as a member of the Kentucky Junior Golf Foundation.

    She says that being able to go out and enjoy the rounds allowed the golfer to play more loosely, improving her score.

  • Post 37 falls in midweek matchup

    In Wednesday’s home matchup between Shelbyville Post 37 and the Delta One Raiders, little went Shelby’s way, as the host team fell behind quickly and couldn’t rebound.

    The Raiders jumped out to a quick 3-1 lead after two innings behind patience and timely hitting and continued to add to the lead before defeating Shelby by an eight-run deficit and a final score of 12-4.

    Author’s Note: In 2007, when I wrote my first column for The Shelbyville, Kentucky Sentinel-News, I thought I would run out of years before I ran out of columns. However, after passing Milestone 101 last week, I don’t seem to be running out of either, for this is my 209th column.
