  • SCHS baseball, softball games...

    The Shelby County baseball and softball teams had their 30th District Tournament games against Eminence suspended Monday evening.

    The Rockets' softball team led the Warriors 4-0 in the top of the third inning, while Shelby's baseball team led Eminence 2-0 in the bottom of the second.

  • Karas nudges her way to 3 titles

    Neither rain, nor cold, nor a little nudge, or two, could derail Caterina Karas on Tuesday night.

    Karas, a junior at Collins High School, won three events – the 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs ­– in the Class 2A, Region 3 meet at Christian Academy of Louisville under cool, rainy conditions.

    "I just came out here wanting to put myself in position to triple, and I did it, so I’m pretty excited about it," said Karas, who beat two defending state champions to do that.

  • Go hard and have fun

    There are certain things that Kelly Cable has come to expect from Hannah Abbott.

    Cable, Shelby County’s softball coach, knows that Abbott, her senior catcher-first baseman, will play hard.

    "She's always been just a ball of fire," Cable said. "She's just always been all out all the time. She doesn’t know what it means not to give a hundred and ten percent." 

    She knows that Abbott will do anything requested of her.

  • Kregor falls in final

    Collins freshman Paige Kregor fell in the 8th Region Tennis Tournament girls’ singles final Thursday.

    Western Hills’s senior Katie Howard, the top seed in the tournament, bettered No. 6 seed Kregor 6-2, 6-4 at Franklin County High School.

    Kregor still advances to next week’s State Tournament in Lexington.

  • 30th District Tournaments start...

    The 30th District baseball and softball tournaments begin Monday, with both Shelby County teams playing home games against Eminence.

    The Rockets baseball team will meet Eminence at 6 p.m. on their home field (they won 12-0 earlier this season). All of the other district games will be played at Spencer County. Meanwhile Shelby’s softball team will also host the Warriors on its field (the Rockets won 6-1 earlier this season).

  • Kregor rallies into final, state...

    FRANKFORT – Collins freshman Paige Kregor was content to make it to the 8th Region girls’ tennis quarterfinals…until she learned she could make it to State if she advanced to the semifinals.

    Of course she didn’t find that out until she was already down a set to North Oldham sixth-grader Maddie Waits in Tuesday morning’s quarterfinals at Western Hills.

    No worries.

  • Titans sandwich rout of Oldham...

    The Collins baseball team continued its recent hot hitting, while also continuing to run roughshod over the 8th Region, during its past three games.

    The Titans (17-4) topped DeSales on Friday night, Oldham County on Saturday morning and Louisville Southern on Monday night.

    Collins is now 7-0 against 8th Region opponents.

  • Rockets rebound, rally...

    The Shelby County baseball team bounced back from a lopsided loss to its cross-town rival – and a recent skid – by producing one of its biggest comebacks of the season.

    The Rockets rallied from an early 6-0 deficit to beat visiting Western Hills, 14-12, this past Thursday – one night after falling, 15-3, to Collins, their sixth loss in their previous seven games.

  • SCHS trims North Oldham; Collins...

    The Shelby County softball team celebrated its fourth victory of the season Monday night.

    After a strong showing in the Boyle County Invitational, the Collins softball team had a rougher go-round this past weekend in the Crusade for Children Tournament.

    The Rockets (4-14) rallied from an early 1-0 deficit to beat host North Oldham, 5-2.

  • This bird likes to dig in and...

    Red-bellied Woodpeckers are known for the pounding cacophony caused by their excavation of cavities in tree trunks.

    They pound and dig a 1.75-2.25-inch-wide cavity that this about a foot deep, usually in a large branch or the trunk of a dead tree, but dead snags in health trees also are used.

    That’s where they make their homes and raise their broods.

    But it’s not as simple as it sounds.
