    Facing the toughest region in the state, the Shelby County and Collins high school golf teams made the best of their regional meet Monday at Midland Trail Golf Course.

    St. X took the team title with 283 points ahead of second place Ballard with 297 points. Both teams will advance to the state meet. The Tigers also boasted the individual champion in Billy Basham who fired a four-under-par 68 to take the regional crown.

  • Collins falls to Spencer County...


    It wasn’t quite in the blink of an eye but fortune turned for the Collins High School football team quickly Friday and badly in a 35-14 road loss to Spencer County.

    The Titans saw Spencer County score three times in 87 seconds with just over six minutes left in the game to break open what had been a defensive struggle on a rainy night.

  • Rockets fall to Flyers on last...

    In a game that had a little bit of everything and plenty of drama the Shelby County Rockets suffered their first loss of the year, 31-28, to Franklin County Friday in the district opener for both teams.

  • Herring Gull: Not your average...

    The Herring Gull is 25 inches long with a wingspan that is 58 inches wide and weighs 2.5 pounds and is a fairly common winter resident around the Falls of the Ohio in Jefferson County, as well as the lake region of western Kentucky.

    I also saw one that was in a rather large flock of migrating Ring-billed Gulls in Shelby County in March of 2014.

    They generally appear in our commonwealth by early October and are gone by mid-May.

  • Pectoral Sandpiper can linger in...

    The Pectoral Sandpiper is common in Kentucky during migration and occasionally lingers into early winter but is extremely rare in mid-winter and summer.

    However, they occur most often west of the Cumberland Plateau and sometimes pass through as early as March 4 and as late as Dec. 30. They are one of many shorebirds that migrate from the Arctic to the Antarctic and then back again.

  • Collins hosting powerful Boyle...

    There could be a lot of question answered for the Collins High School football team Friday after they face Boyle County.

    Boyle County, ranked No. 1 in 3A is 4-0 this season and expected to challenge for another state title again this year.

  • Thomas wins tourney at Memphis

    Shelby County’s Madison Thomas wasted no time making a name for herself with the University of Memphis women's golf team.

    In her first collegiate tournament, Thomas topped senior teammate Ashleigh Whisenan in a playoff for individual medalist honors, leading 5 Tigers in the top 10 of a tournament at Ridgeway Country Club.

    Playing the No. 9 hole in the playoff, Thomas' putt circled the cup and fell in to edge Whisenant for tournament medalist honors.

  • Shelby County hosting East

    Shelby County could see the 0-4 Bullitt East team or the team that was picked ninth in the preseason 5A poll this Friday when they host the Chargers in their homecoming game.

    That the normally powerful Chargers have opened the year winless has been a shock to most but it also comes with some understanding.

    “They have been kind of dinged up all year, I don’t think they have ever had their full team,” Shelby County coach Todd Shipley said. “Plus they have played great competition.”

  • Shelby comeback dooms Western...

    There may be something about the home court and a bit of drama for the Shelby County High School volleyball team

    In just its second home game, the Rockets went a full five games to pull out a win after dropping the first two matches to their foe. Shelby County came back from the 0-2 deficit Tuesday to beat Western Hills by winning the final three games.
