  • Swim schedule sinks coach

    After a summer of heated negotiations proved futile, the Shelbyville/Shelby County Parks and Rec. system settled on a swim practice schedule that has left some up in arms and two high school swim teams without a coach.

    J.P. LaVertu has reluctantly resigned from the position as swim coach for both Shelby County and Collins high schools.

    “Due to some scheduling conflicts with his work schedule it basically made it impossible for him to do morning practices,” said Collins Athletics Director Randy Fawns.

  • Shelby football bonded at camp

    The start of football practice is always about getting in reps, introducing the old and the new concepts, finding out who can play where, but the for the Shelby County High School team the most important thing to come out of the three-day camp they attended at Eastern Kentucky University this week may have been the bonding.

  • Calvin brings home coaching honor

    It seems appropriate after 43 years in coaching, Shelby County High School assistant football coach Greg Calvin has grabbed the first honors of the upcoming football season.

    Calvin, the Shelby County defensive coordinator, was recently named the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association’s Assistant Coach of the Year for last season.

    “I was a little bit surprised, but it was very pleasing,” Calvin said. “You don’t get into coaching for this kind of award, but it’s really nice to be recognized.”

  • Clarkson scores seven in Bridge...

    It’s been a good summer for Collins High School senior guard Grant Clarkson as he had a chance to showcase a new weapon in his game.

    Clarkson, a 5-11 starter for the Collins 8th Region Championship team last year, scored seven points for the Kentucky All-Stars in the Battle of the Bridges game that pits the players from the Louisville Metro area against players from Southern Indiana.

  • Collins wins at Henry County

    It was a big opening weekend of golf for the local girls high school teams as Shelby County and Collins both competed in the Rocket Invitational and the Henry County Invitational.

    Collins broke loose Monday in the Henry County tourney shooting a 361 to take first place while Shelby County took second with a score of 387.

    The Titans got strong outings from senior Claire Watts who took third place with a score of 83 while freshman Rylee Suttor shot an 84 to finish fourth.

  • Max Perfomance, Baptist are...

    High school athletes in Shelby County will have an extra option to turn to if they end up on the disabled list or even just a little banged up.

    Thanks to a new partnership between Max Performance Physical Therapy and Baptist Healthcare Sports Medicine, the local schools will have an extra athletic trainer on hand at all home sporting events and also added coverage during practice times on a daily basis.

  • Post 37 falls in title game

    After rolling into the state tourney finals with two solid wins, the Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion baseball team ran into some hard luck, dropping their next two games to Post 31 of Paducah to finish second in the state at Brooks Stadium in Paducah.

    “We played extremely hard and pretty well in the first two games,” Post 37 coach Roy Bailey said. “In the championship games we just made too many errors.”

  • Young looking to be Shelby'...

    When Lilly Young walked off the course at the Oxmoor Golf Club two weeks ago as the champion of the Big I regional tournament she knew exactly whose steps she was following.

    “Candace Wiley won that tournament before her junior year and Madison (Thomas) won it before her junior year,” Young said. “I thought it was kind of cool I won it before my junior year.”

  • Eades hopes to carry on...

    No one needs to tell Nick Eades about the shoes he’s filling.

    Eades, who will start at middle linebacker for the Collins High School football team as a sophomore this year, grew up watching former all-staters Michael Brooks and Masai White and well knows the impact they had on the field.

    “I’m aware of them,” Eades said. “I know how good they were, and I know what an important position this is.”

  • Golden-crowned Kinglet is...

    Our smallest bird except for the hummingbird is only 4 inches long with a 7-inch wingspan and weighs 0.2 ounces and is a fairly common migrant but somewhat uncommon winter resident to Kentucky.

    The Golden-crowned Kinglet breeds in dense coniferous forests across and throughout the southern provinces of Canada, New England, the Appalachian Mountains, and the western Rocky Mountains on up to southern Alaska.
