  • It's time to hit the golf...

    Even if it hasn’t always been evident this week, spring is here, and that means one thing – more and more people will start hitting the golf course.

    So with that in mind here’s a look at all five of the golf courses here in Shelby County, and what they have to offer this year.

     

    Cardinal Club

    Chris Hamburger, the PGA director of golf at Cardinal Club who was named the PGA Professional of the Month in February, reports that the Cardinal Club is hosting two big events this year.

  • Court goes for record 3rd...

    Saturday evening Jon Court will try to go boldly where no jockey has gone before in the Arkansas Derby – to the winner’s circle three years in a row.

    Court has ridden the last two Derby winners at Oaklawn Park. In 2010 he guided Line of David to victory, then last year he did the same aboard Archarcharch.

  • Collins rebounds, wins 2 in...

    The Butler Bears (5-3) went on a 5-0 spree – scoring four in the fourth inning – to beat host Collins (7-3) this past Thursday night, part of a 3-1 week for the Titans.

    “We played okay for the most part against Butler,” said Collins Coach Roy Bailey, whose team scored single runs in the first, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh innings. “We just had one bad inning that really hurt us. We can't afford that against a good team.”

  • Noonan’s dinger gives Shelby the...

    LOUISVILLE – Kody Noonan couldn’t have picked a better moment to hit the first home run of the season for the Shelby County baseball team.

    His three-run homer in the top of the seventh inning propelled the Rockets to a 6-5 victory over host Fairdale on Monday afternoon.

    “It couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Noonan, who went 3-for-4 with five RBIs.

  • Spring break doesn’t snap Titans...

    While the rest of the Collins student body is on spring vacation, the school’s baseball team is having a stay-cation.

    Collins is playing five games this week, including four at home. The Titans won the first of those home games Tuesday afternoon, beating Elizabethtown 5-2 less than 24 hours after blanking host Meade County, 6-0, Monday night on the strength of junior Austin Perry’s no-hitter.

  • Collins’ Perry no-hits Meade

    Austin Perry pitched a no-hitter Monday night to lead the Collins baseball team to a 6-0 victory at Meade County.

    “He had complete command of his pitches, [an] outstanding performance,” Collins Coach Roy Bailey said.

    Perry, a junior right-hander struck out seven – throwing 18 first-pitch strikes.

    “I just tried to locate and hit my spots, keep it away from them,” he said. “I threw a lot of two-seam fastballs, ran the four-seam away from them and worked the slider.”

    Ballard, the No. 1 team in the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association Top 25, lived up to that lofty perch Tuesday, clobbering host Collins, 14-4, in a 6-inning game.

    The Bruins (11-0) made the most of their eight hits and also benefited from five errors by the Titans (6-6) to stay unbeaten.

  • Andriot will play at Xavier

    Collins junior Walker Andriot, one of the top boys’ soccer players in the state, has committed to play collegiately at Xavier University.

    Andriot was a first-team all-state selection by the Kentucky High School Soccer Coaches Association this past season. He had a team-high eight goals – including a hat trick in the season-opener against Shelby County – and three assists for the Titans, who went 11-7-2, finishing as the 16th District runners-up before losing to Ballard, 3-2, in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament.

  • Titans’ boys, Rockets’ girls...

    The Collins boys’ and Shelby County girls’ eked out narrow victories at the Rockets’ All-Comers track & field meet Tuesday.

    The Titans edged host Shelby County, 116-109, in the boys’ meet, and the Rockets slipped by Collins, 87-84, in the girls’ meet.

    “We did pretty well [with] both teams,” Collins Coach Jerry Lucas said. “We are getting better each week. I know it's been difficult on them at times without a track to workout on, but we are proud of the kids and the effort they give every meet.”
