  • Hoss goes out on top with title

    This one was for “Hoss.”

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team bounced back from a disappointing loss to Ashland Post 76 Thursday night with a 10-5 triumph over the Sixers on Friday night in the winner-take-all championship game of the state tournament at Collins High School. And the Post 37 players, to a man, said they did it for long-time Shelbyville manager Jim “Hoss” Wiley, who is retiring at the end of the season.

    “We wanted to win for ‘Hoss,’” Post 37 pitcher Dan Sanders said.

  • Rockets, Thomas open season with...

    It was a solid start to the season, to say the least, for the Shelby County girls’ golf team.

  • Post 37 ready for regional

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team’s last trip to the regional tournament was a quick one.
    Two years ago Post 37 lost its first two games at the Southeast Regional Tournament in South Carolina.
    “We were two and out,” Buddy Johnson, one of five holdovers from that team, said. “We were down there for the looks in 2012, sightseeing, we were down there for fun. Now we know what we have to do.”

    For Shelbyville, the twosome of Michael Long and Rylee Suttor led the way. The winners of the boys’ and girls’ divisions of the inaugural City Championship the previous Saturday teamed up to capture 2.5 flags.

  • Post 37 steamrolls into...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team rolled into the state championship game with a pair of lopsided victories.

  • Titans look to grow after solid...

    Collins girls’ golf coach Suzanne Cates expects to see marked improvement from her players in her second season at the helm.

    “They’ve all gotten a lot better,” she said.  

    The Titans will try to better their fifth-place finish (out of 13 teams) at the Region 5 Tournament as well as send their first golfer to State.

    Leading the way for Collins will be senior Mary Borders, the Titans’ No. 1 player.
