  • Shelby captures state...

    While Shelbyville Post 37’s game against Owensboro was a contest that went down to the wire on Thursday night, the state championship game between Shelby and Lyon County Post 68 was a one-sided affair.

    Post 37 outscored Lyon early and often, taking the title in a lopsided 16-3 win in the title game Friday.

    “Our guys just wanted to win badly,” Shelby coach Matt Buresh said. “We had the close win against Owensboro the night before, and we just wanted to close it out, and we did.”

  • Sanderlin joins Collins as coach

    There is a new face at the helm for Collins High School’s track and cross country programs.

    George Sanderlin, a coach who most recently led North Atlanta High School in Georgia, is now managing the school’s running programs.

    Former Collins coach Sean Roberts moved on to Kentucky Country Day after the conclusion of the 2017 spring sports season.

    Sanderlin brings high hopes to the Titans’ teams for this year.

    Shelbyville Post 37 emphatically closed out its regular season Saturday, with a pair of blowout victories over the Louisville Vipers and Danville Mustangs.

    Shelby outscored its opponents during the two games by a combined 27-2, and has built up a head of steam moving into the American Legion State Tournament.

    “We’re playing pretty good going into the state tournament,” Post 37 coach Matt Buresh said. “We’ve done a solid job of hitting the ball over our last couple games.”

  • Post 37 defeats Oldham in...

    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.

  • Shipley earns community service...

    Former Shelby County football player and current Murray State University athlete Zach Shipley was honored on July 10, being announced as a nominee for the 2017 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team for his community service efforts.

    “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.”

  • Creque named to award watch list

    After a very successful 2016 season that saw him seize the starting job for one of the best football teams in the country, former Collins kicker Blanton Creque has been named to the Lou Groza award watch list for the 2017 season.

    The award, named after the former Ohio State University placekicker, is given to the nation’s top athlete at the position following the conclusion of the college football season.

    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 Shelby County Little League All-Stars had a rough go of it over the weekend, falling in a pair of games to West Lexington in the state final held at Cardinal Run Park.
