  • Durant's decision not...

    Six years ago, 25-year-old LeBron James sat on ESPN as the network celebrated his achievements for a full hour in the presence of millions of people who were watching at home. Ultimately, he decided to leave Cleveland for the warmer shores of Miami, and “The Decision” was widely panned due to how he handled his free agency process.

    Fast forward to 2016, and Kevin Durant is getting killed on social media networks for doing what we all perceived as the ‘right way’ to handle a free agency period.

  • Finally healthy, Karas is ready...

    After a year in which she sustained shin splints, mononucleosis, and was even in a car accident, Collins High School’s Gabriella Karas is looking forward to running again.

    Karas, who won her first state championship in 7th grade, missed a large part of her junior cross country season in 2015 with shin splints and all of the track season this year after a car crash on April 24.

  • Post 37’s slide hits 3 games

    After a blazing hot start, Shelbyville American Legion Post 37’s bats have gone cold.

    Post 37 fell 4-0 Wednesday at Floyds Knobs Post 42, mustering just three hits in the loss. Shelby struggled all night at the hands of Post 42’s potent pitching staff.

  • Thomas ramping up summer play

    It’s been quite a busy summer on the links for Shelbyville native Madison Thomas.

    The University of Memphis golfer and former Shelby County High School state champion just completed the second round of the 2016 Judson Collegiate Tournament on Wednesday and last week competed in the Women’s Western Golf Association’s 116th National Amateur Championship.

    “[This summer] has been alright, I struggled a little in the beginning,” Thomas said. “During [the WWGA event], I realized that I needed to get better.”

  • Manica on a mission

    Even after a season in which he was named first-team all-district and all-state honorable mention, Shelby County’s Malik Manica is not satisfied with where he is as a player. The Hocking College commit says that he believes he should have made one of the all-state teams.

  • Post 37 drops 2 at Lyon County

    Shelbyville Post 37’s hot bats went cold under the beaming summer sun on Saturday, as it dropped two games against Lyon County Post 68. A number of key players were absent over the weekend for Shelby, such as Will McDonald, and Matt and Michael Gammon.

    Both the pitching and hitting was lacking for Post 37, as the team only mustered three runs in game one of the series. Pitchers Blake Lambdin, Austin Jennings, and Bryson Dillow were shelled for a combined 11 hits and six earned runs.

  • Horses brought Ryan to Shelby

    Here in horse country it’s not unusual to walk into a cold, dark, damp barn to do an interview.

    I’ve probably done a few hundred interviews taking notes while trying to keep my pen from shaking too much. Any of you that have seen my notebooks know my penmanship doesn’t need any more issues.

  • Wiley grabs 1st PGA Jr. tourney...

    Shelbyville’s Faith Wiley took first place in the girls’ 16-18 year old division of the Kentucky PGA Jr. Tour Summer Series Tournament on June 15, earning her a spot in Kentucky PGA Jr. Tour Championship in July.

    Wiley, a rising junior at Shelby County High School, shot an impressive 84 during her round at the Weissinger Hills Golf Course in Shelbyville, finishing three strokes ahead of second place.

  • Post 37 continues to roll

    Shelbyville Post 37 kept its offensive onslaught going, this time decimating the Bullitt 18-and-under team by a score of 16-1 in just seven innings.

    Post 37 drew first blood in the top of the third frame, when Bryson Dillow scored off a Matt Gammon single. RBI singles from Blake Lambdin and Alex Doyle followed as Post 37 raced out to a 4-0 lead after two-and-a-half innings of play.

  • Shelby racer is on the Kart fast...

    Although he may only be 10 years old, Tyler Bailey is quickly becoming a veteran on the race track.

    “I started when I was seven, driving in a little yard with a go kart that doesn’t go as fast as the one I drive now,” Tyler Bailey said. “My neighbor made a little track and that’s what got me into [kart racing].”

    Tyler’s father says that remote control cars were also a factor in getting Tyler interested in kart racing.
