  • Collins embracing pace this...

    Coming off of the most successful season in program history and its first ever win at the KHSAA State Basketball Tournament, the Collins boys’ basketball team has retooled its strategy over the summer from last year.

    With the loss of lengthy forwards Charlie Cochran and Dominique Turner to graduation, the Titans will turn to a guard-heavy line up with the returns of Nick Fort, Jacob Feltner, Dayvion McKnight and Marcellus Vail.

    The team hopes the move to a four-guard starting lineup will pay dividends once the season starts this fall.

  • Rockets using size in summer...

    This summer, the Shelby County boys’ basketball team is looking to improve its technique to go along with its increased size from last season.

    With three players six-foot-three-inches or taller, the Rockets want to be more physical in the paint and on the boards than it was in the 2016-17 season.

    The team closed its summer campaign by hosting one leg of a tournament over the weekend with Collins High School.

  • Wiley claims first golf title of...

    Shelby County’s Faith Wiley is staying active over the months leading up to the high school season, and she locked up her first title of the summer with a first place finish in the Kentucky Junior Golf Foundation Classic over the weekend.

    The event, hosted at Quail Chase Golf Club in Louisville, saw Wiley edge out fellow Shelbyville native and Collins’ athlete Rylee Suttor for the girls’ championship.

    Wiley posted a final score of 175 after the two rounds of competition, winning by just one stroke over Suttor.

  • Post 37 splits weekend twinbill...

    In its first weekend tournament of the season, the Shelbyville American Legion team experienced some mixed results in a doubleheader against Indiana’s Evansville-Pate Post 265.

    Post 37 took the first game from Evansville by a 6-2 margin, but fell in game two of the series in a 6-4 loss.

    “Overall I thought we played pretty well this weekend,” Post 37 coach Matt Buresh said. “We made a few mistakes, and we need to play some cleaner games and do the little things that make the difference.”

  • Shelby County all-stars head to...

    Shelby County will be represented at the Little League baseball level on July 7, when the 11-13 year old team will compete in the state championship round held in Lexington.

    Shelby will take on Western Lexington in a best of three-game series, and the team led by head coach Jonathan Carroll, is confident in its chances at the state level.

  • Collins falls in state tournament

    While Collins softball may have come up short in its first trip to the KHSAA State Softball Tournament, the experience may have made the team a stronger unit.

    Following the team’s 6-4 elimination loss to Central Hardin on Friday afternoon, head coach Charlie LeCompte said that the pair of games showed the level of play necessary for the team to advance in the final tournament of the season.

  • A family affair

    Playing soccer at the University of Louisville has become a family tradition in the Andriot household.

    By this fall, Shelbyville natives and brothers Walker and Chaz Andriot will both be enrolled at UofL on soccer scholarships – Walker as a graduate transfer after three years of action at Xavier University, and Chaz, who graduated a year early from Collins High School this May.

    And while having two Division I soccer players on the same team from the same family is a great feat, it’s just a start of the story for the Andriot’s.

  • Defending champs return...

    The Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion team will break in its third head coach in as many seasons under Matt Buresh this summer.

    But it’s nothing new for Buresh, who has spent several years working with the team and helped out long time former skipper Jim Wiley.

    But despite having a new head coach, the team returns an immense amount of talent from last season’s state championship squad. Seven returning players, along with some fresh new faces, will help Buresh hit the ground running this summer.

  • Titans hold heads high

    You never want to see a team as talented as Collins softball was this year have its season ended, but the Titans players have plenty of reasons to be proud, and reasons for fans to be hopeful for the future.

    While the team’s final score against East Carter may have seemed like a one-sided affair, it was much closer than the final tally would have you believe.

  • Collins softball looks to make...

    The Collins High School softball team drew about as tall a task as possible to open the KHSAA State Softball Tournament on Thursday, but head coach Charlie LeCompte remained upbeat and positive as the Titans headed to Owensboro on Wednesday.

    “Anybody can beat anyone in a one-game series,” LeCompte said. “Anything can happen. If we play solid defense and put the ball into play, I like our chances.”
