  • COOK: SCHS girls golfers...

    Tryouts for several sports begin next week at both Collins and Shelby County high schools, and although fall sports don’t begin until August, things are already looking good for the Shelby County girls’ golf team.
    The Rockets’ four returning players – Shannon Harover, Jordan Webb, Madison Thomas and Lilly Young – have all had strong summers on the state’s junior golf tours so far.

  • NCAA-II golf finals coming to...

    Shelby County’s golf scene will take on a bit more notoriety in 2012, when the NCAA Division II’s men’s and women’s championships will be played at the county’s most prestigious venues.

    As part of the Louisville Sports Commission’s luring of all the spring sports championships for NCAA-II to Kentuckiana, Cardinal Club in Simpsonville (men) and Persimmon Ridge (women) in northwestern Shelby County have landed those championships.

  • Post 37's Woolums is quick...

    Tyler Woolums is used to the question now.
    Are you the catcher?
    “I do get that a lot. People tell me I have a baseball build, but they say I look like a second baseman or an outfielder,” said Woolums, 19, who stands 5 feet 11 and weighs 170 pounds. “I’m trying to change that. I’d like to grow a couple inches and put on a little mass.”
    But in the meantime Woolums will continue to mash the ball for the Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion baseball team.

  • Post 37's skid reaches 6...

    The struggles continued for the Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion baseball team Friday night.
    As has been the case in recent games, Post 37 dug itself a big hole and couldn’t climb out of it – despite a grand slam – in an 8-5 loss to Lexington’s Man O’ War team at Clear Creek Park. It was Shelbyville’s fifth consecutive setback after it began the summer season with five victories in a row.

  • Cool on the ice

    The temperatures will reach near 90 degrees on this cloudless day, but inside the Iceland Sports Complex, it's cold, very cold.

    It's teeth-chattering cold in fact.

    But that’s where you could find 11-year-old Bethany Perkins on Wednesday morning with her big-time figure skating dreams in tow.

    "I want to be in the Olympics," Perkins, a resident of Simpsonville, said with her braced smile.


    "Two thousand eighteen," she said.

  • Post 37 loses four straight games

    The script has flipped for the Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion baseball team.

    The Post won its first five games of the season by a combined score of 48-12. However, it has dropped its past four by a combined score of 42-14.

  • SCHS rifle team just misses its...

    The Shelby County Rifle Team missed its own type of triple bull’s-eye, but just barely.

    The team, which won the 2011 JROTC National Air Rifle Championships in late March, won the Junior Olympic National Air Rifle Championship and finished second in the NRA National Air Rifle Championship during the past week. 

    In the Junior Olympic Championship, Connor Davis placed first overall with a score of 4,685. Meanwhile at the national championship, team member Heather Kirby was victorious with an identical score.

  • Pearcy takes checkered flag

    Once school resumes, a Shelbyville teen-ager will have plenty to talk about when classmates, or teachers, ask him what he did over the summer.  

    Thirteen-year-old Daniel Pearcy, who is in his third season of driving in the Ralph Firman Racing Cars Indy Karting Series, recently notched his first career IKS victory in the Junior Supercan division June 19 in the Lafayette Square Mall Grand Prix in Indianapolis.
