  • Cal well paid, but is he the...

    As of Monday, John Calipari is now one of the highest – if not the highest – paid men’s college basketball coach in the country.

    But is the University of Kentucky coach worth it?

    He never has won a national championship and has had two of his three trips to the Final Four vacated by the NCAA, and University of Louisville fans will say that that third one (his past season) is pending.

  • SCHS rifle team takes aim at...

    The Shelby County rifle team is shooting for its own type of triple crown right now.

    The Rifle Rockets are competing in both the NRA National Air Rifle Championship and the Junior Olympic National Air Rifle Championship, which began Thursday and continues through Tuesday at Camp Perry, Ohio.

  • Summer ball helps teams build...

    While most of their friends have been at the pool, the mall, the movies or catching up on reruns of ‘Jersey Shore,’ boys’ and girls’ basketball players from both Collins and Shelby County haven’t had much time for those things so far this summer.

    That’s because they’ve been honing their games.

    Since school ended, prospective players for next season from both schools have been practicing, playing games and working out.

  • Calipari excited, anxious for...

    University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari said he was full of anxiety Thursday.

    But it wasn’t because he was trying to figure out lineups for his team, which could be the preseason No. 1 team in the nation, for next season.

    Instead Calipari’s worries were because he was unsure of where his former players would be selected later that night in the NBA Draft.

  • Waddy races crown state champs

    Ten state champions were crowned in Waddy on Sunday.

    The Kentucky State Championship Road Race, sponsored by Headfirst Performance Magazine and Main Street Bikes in Shelbyville, took place in the late morning and early afternoon of Father’s Day.

    Riders from Lexington and the Louisville-area dominated the races (formerly the Waddy Road Race), which covered a 10-mile circuit that started and ended at the Waddy Ruritan Club on Kings Highway, winning all 10 titles. But Shelby County was still well-represented.

  • Morris still alive for KSTV...

    Shelby County graduate Chris Morris still has a shot at his dream job.

    The 2007 SCHS alum and Western Kentucky University student is one of the 15 finalists to become a part-time co-host on Kentucky Sports Television’s nightly half-hour show about University of Kentucky sports (which runs at 7:30 & 11 p.m. on Insight Channel 2) hosted by Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio fame.

    "I'm very excited," Morris, 22, said. "I got the call Saturday morning."

  • Post 37 leads off with no-hitter

    The Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion baseball team only played one game due to rain in its 31st Annual Shelbyville American Legion Invitational Tournament over the weekend, but it was an impressive victory nonetheless.

    Shelbyville beat Storm Club out of Cincinnati 10-0 in five innings Thursday night thanks to Zach Strecker’s no-hitter at Bobby Stratton Field. Shelbyville’s late game Friday night, as well as a pair of game scheduled for Saturday, were washed out.

  • Kentucky State Championship Road...

    The Kentucky State Championship Road Race will take place Sunday in Waddy.

    The Road Race, which is sponsored by Headfirst Performance and Main Street Bikes in Shelbyville, will start and finish at the Waddy Ruritan Club on Kings Highway.

    This will be a road race circuit where men and women ride a 10-mile circuit through Waddy for two, or more, laps.

  • SCHS grads vie for TV gig

    Two Shelby County graduates are vying for their dream jobs, and you can help them reach that goal.

    Molly Albrecht, 24, a 2005 graduate of SCHS, and Chris Morris, 22, a 2007 graduate of SCHS, are two of the 51 remaining applicants who are trying to earn a job as part-time co-host on Kentucky Sports Television’s nightly half-hour show about University of Kentucky sports (it runs at 7:30 & 11 p.m. on Insight Channel 2) hosted by Matt Jones.

  • Hicks hearing from plenty of...

    Darryl Hicks’ phone rang at 12:05 a.m. Wednesday – the first day that high school juniors-to-be could officially receive phone calls from college coaches.

    The first school to call the Shelbyville resident was Georgia Tech, according to Courier-Journal writer Jody Demling’s blog.
