  • Post 37 sweeps weekend...

    Shelbyville Post 37 held to its winning ways, picking up four straight victories over the weekend to improve its record to 8-1 this season.

    Shelbyville 9, Richmond 1

    Game one of the weekend saw Shelbyville defeat Post 9 out of Richmond, Ky. Post 37 got on the board quickly, with Kyler Dugle, Matt Gammon and Blake Lambdin all reaching paydirt on a pair of RBIs from Matt Gammon and Will McDonald, giving Shelby a 3-0 lead after just one inning.

  • Long course season underway

    The long course season for the Lakeside Seahawks swim team is well underway, and the ultimate goal is to have swimmers qualify for Olympic trials at the end of June.

    “[The Olympic trials] is our pinnacle,” said coach Tom Coons. “We are outside training everyday as a team.”

  • Pearcy picks up big kart win

    Shelbyville’s Daniel Pearcy picked up his first kart-racing win since 2013 with his victory at the Mel Kenyon Classic on June 5.

    “It felt good to win, the last few years have been tough getting out there,” Pearcy said. “We’ve needed sponsors the last few years, and we’ve gotten them this year.”

    Pearcy held the lead for the entirety of the 18-lap Southern Indiana Racing Association event, after earning the pole position by winning the heat race just a day before.

  • Aces in the hole

    The weather wasn’t the only thing heating up the Shelbyville Country Club this weekend.

    Kate Henninger and Roger Odenweller both carded aces on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

    The first came from Henninger while she was trying to show one of her partners the proper form. It turned out that her form was perfect. The hole-in-one, her first, came on No. 13.

    “I lined up and hit the shot and I was shocked when it went in,” Henninger said. “The funny thing is, I’m not even that great of a golfer myself.”

  • Cates to take over Rockets...

    New Shelby County boys’ basketball coach Ken Cates knows that for the team to get better in the win-loss column, its going to have to get better at the minute details.

    “I’m real big into the details, from the way we look, to how we enter the gym for road games,” he said. “All those little details, like the way we warm up, add up to wins.”

  • Players play to be seen

    More than 400 athletes came out to Collins High School Thursday in order to showcase their skills in a satellite camp hosted by Western Kentucky University.

    The Collins Titans had 14 players compete in the camp, which was attended by recruiters from both WKU and other small colleges around the state.

    “It was great for us. I talked to a coach from Western Kentucky and he said this is the biggest camp they’ve ever put on,” said Jerry Lucas, Collins coach. “I guarantee we had over twenty smaller schools as well.”

  • Post 37 rips through 4-game...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team has come out of the gate on fire.

    The group of players from Shelby and surrounding counties opened the summer season over the weekend in Floyds Knobs, Ind., picking up three wins in four games and averaging a blistering 11 runs per game.

    “Overall, I was pleased with the weekend,” said coach J.R. Wiley. “I couldn’t have been happier with the pitching or the hitting.”

  • Rockets vs Titans: Round 1 comes...

    Cross-town rivals Shelby County and Collins high schools took to the diamond Monday night and the two teams didn’t disappoint with pitchers Will McDonald and Michael Gammons turning in gems on the mound, as Collins squeezed out a 1-0 win on the road and took command of the 30th District race.

    The two pitchers combined for 14 strikeouts in complete game performances, but it was Collins’ bats – with McDonald in another key role – that finally broke through in the 6th.

  • A perfect return

    A Collins junior was back on the court again less than two months after recovering from brain surgery.

    Ashton Schneider, 16, said she was glad to be back for her first match Friday, a rival game between Collins and Shelby County High School in which the Titans came out on top.

    “I had practice yesterday, but this is my first game,” she said, relaxing on bench waiting for her turn on the court.

    She recalled that day early in the year when she was stricken.

  • Collins rallies, holds on to top...

    By John Herndon/Landmark News Service

    The Collins and Anderson County baseball teams could have spent their entire summers at Kings Island and not have had a roller coaster ride like they experienced Tuesday night.

    Collins spotted the visiting Bearcats an early six-run lead, then rallied to overcome a 5-run deficit before holding on for a wild 13-12 30th District win.

    Collins overcame eight errors to post its second win over Anderson in as many nights and in the process evened its record at 6-6, 2-0 in district play.
