  • SCHS rifle team in national event

    The Shelby County High School rifle team began defending its 2012 JROTC National Air Rifle Championship on Thursday. The competition lasts through Saturday, in Anniston, Ala.

    Senior Connor Davis, who finished first overall in the competition last year, is defending his individual title as well.

  • No track, no field, no problems

    The Collins track & field teams have neither a track nor a field on which to practice or compete, but that shouldn’t stop the Titans from having a successful second season.

    Collins should be one of the better teams in Class AA, especially on the girls’ side, where senior Caterina Karas is the defending state champion in two events.

  • SOFTBALL: Rockets, Titans lose...

    The Shelby County softball team suffered its second narrow defeat of the young season as host Manual topped the Rockets, 5-3, Wednesday in Louisville.

    Shelby (0-2), which lost its season-opener, 6-5, at North Oldham on Monday, fell behind the Crimsons (1-1) early when Manual plated one run in the bottom of the first.

  • Rockets get off and running –...

    The Shelby County track and field teams began their outdoor seasons Tuesday.

    The Rockets’ boys’ team finished seventh and their girls’ squad 15th in their All-Comers meet at Robert Doyle Stadium.

     

    Boys 8th out of 15

    The Rockets won one event on the track, and they scored ample points in the field events on their way to tallying 50.5 points to finish seventh among 18 teams. Fort Knox, which finished fifth in Class A at last year’s state championships, won the meet with 86 points.

  • Wednesday's First 4

    It's time to dust off the old blog again because - to steal a line from one of my favorite Steve Carell movies - I'm afraid if I don't use it I might lose it. So here's a quick glance at Wednesday.

    1. The big news of the day, and so far the week, is the resignation (wink, wink) of Shelby County boys' basketball coach Rick Parsons.

  • Rockets rally to top Dragons in...

    The Shelby County baseball team did something in its season-opener that it didn’t do all of last year – the Rockets posted a come-from-behind victory.

    Shelby County scored four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat visiting South Oldham 6-5 Friday.

    “It was a great win, the first come-from-behind win in two years,” Rockets Coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger said.

  • Shelby County softball falls in...

    The Shelby County softball team’s season opener had hot start but a cool conclusion Monday as host North Oldham rallied for a 6-5 victory in Goshen.

    The Rockets, who went 5-19 last season, started off well, scoring once in the first inning and twice in the second and third frames to build a 5-2 lead.

    “We couldn’t find a run after that,” said Shelby County Coach Kelly Cable, whose team had all five of its hits in the first 3 1/3 innings. 

  • Rockets’ boys revved for a run...

    New Shelby County track & field coach Nick Edwards has high hopes for his first teams.

    And if a few indoor meets are any indication, Edwards’ optimism – especially for his boys’ squad – is well warranted.

    “I think it looks pretty bright for us this year,” said Edwards, 24, an assistant coach last season who takes over for the retired George Cottrell.

    The Rockets opened their outdoor season Tuesday at their own all-comers meet.

     

    Boys look strong

  • A whole new sport arrives in...

    David Boone knew lacrosse had arrived in the United States when he saw it being played in a breakfast cereal commercial on TV.

    This spring, thanks to Boone and his daughter’s desire to play the sport, it has arrived Shelbyville.

    Boone is the coach of the brand new Collins girls’ lacrosse club team – which also includes a pair of players from Shelby County – that plays its first game at 5:15 p.m. Thursday at Daniel Field.
