  • Headfirst wraps triathlon series

    This weekend, Headfirst Performance will host its third and final triathlon event beginning at Clear Creek Park in Shelbyville.

    The event will consist of a 400-yard swim, 16-mile bike race, and finally, a five-kilometer run to complete the Shelbyville Triathlon Series, which began on February 26.

    “This is the longest distance event that we have done,” Headfirst Performance owner Todd Heady said. “You don’t have to particularly do the other races in the series, it’s open to anyone who wants to do it.”

  • Lawmakers look at concussion...

    Kentucky lawmakers took time to focus on student-athlete safety this session, specifically focusing on concussions with House Bill 241.

    The bill requires a licensed physician to check student-athletes who suffer head injuries before returning to action. If no physician is available on site, the athlete may not participate in practice or a game until an evaluation is given.

    Both Collins and Shelby County high schools were already in position to follow the new rules, haven previously taken steps to have trainers and doctors on the sideline.

  • Shelby dominates Breckinridge

    After more than a week between games due to rainouts, Shelby County baseball was ready to get back on the diamond and exploded to blow out Breckinridge County 14-1 on Monday.

    The Rockets (4-6-1) rode a dominant pitching performance from starter Domingo Garcia, who allowed just five hits and no earned runs while striking out seven in a complete game victory.

    Along with Garcia’s fantastic night on the mound, SCHS compiled 18 hits as a team to help earn its fourth win of the year.

  • Titans rally to top Central...

    Down 2-0 after five innings of play, Collins baseball was looking for a way to grab its first lead of the game over Central Hardin on Monday night.

    In the top of the sixth, runners Michael Hill and Matthew Hershberger were waiting on first and second, respectively, for the Titans (7-6) when catcher Zane Baker stepped to the plate.

    On the third pitch of the at-bat, Baker blasted a shot over the leftfield fence, and opened up a 3-2 lead over the Bruins (3-6).

  • Clark captures PGA Jr. title

    While the spring and summer months may technically be the offseason for high school golfers, Grace Clark is laying the smack down in Kentucky PGA junior events.

    On the weekend of March 25-26, the eighth-grader from Shelby County High School earned a first-place finish in the Girls High School Division Kentucky PGA Junior Tour Match Play Tournament in Danville.

  • Collins capitalizes on...

    Manufacturing runs and riding a hot-hand on the mound led to Collins seizing an early lead, and eventually a 5-1 win over a visiting Assumption team on Wednesday night.

    The Titans (6-3) scored five runs over four separate innings thanks to defensive miscues by the Rockets (5-7).

    Assumption committed four errors in the loss that led to three unearned runs for Collins.

  • Oldham rallies past Collins

    Untimely errors decided a pitcher’s duel between Collins baseball and Oldham County on Tuesday night.

    The three hurlers from both the Titans and the Colonels combined to strike out 20 batters and allowed just two earned runs between them.

    Unfortunately, two unearned runs on fielding mistakes set the final score at 3-1, with Oldham leaving the victor.

  • Shelby opens up fishing program

    While Shelby County’s newly KHSAA-certified bass fishing team may be in its growing stages, the unit has been gaining valuable experience out on the water.

    The team recently competed in its first tournament last Saturday, and will remain busy until the postseason begins on April 22.

  • Collins takes to the water

    In its first year of existence at the school, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association has officially sanctioned the Collins’ bass fishing team for region and state competition.

    The team boasts 16 anglers fishing off of seven boats, and Collins has already taken part in competition this season, fishing in it’s first tournament on March 4.

  • Three big innings lead Shelby...

    Up 3-1 over Grayson County after three innings of play, Shelby County baseball was searching for a way to put the game out of reach.

    Michael Stivers and Caleb Collins were waiting on base when senior Brandon Davis stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the fourth.

    On the third pitch of the at-bat, Davis got a hold of the Grayson pitcher Hunter Schiarella’s fastball, roping it over the left centerfield wall and notching a five-run deficit over the visiting Cougars (2-7) and opening the offensive floodgates for the Rockets (3-6-1).
