  • Spalding title has Shelby flavor

    Former SCHS guard Allison Morris said she didn’t expect much from her freshman season at Spalding University.

    “We only had five returning players, and the rest were freshman, and we had two junior transfers,” she said. “I didn’t even really expect us to have a winning season.”

    After the team started 0-3, Morris’ projections seemed accurate.

    But then a funny thing happened. The girls won six in a row, and the season started to look better.

  • Legion team rallies past...

    They needed every bit of nine innings and more than three hours, but the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team came back from a 9-1 deficit to beat Morehead, 11-10, on the road Wednesday.

    After jumping out to a 1-0 lead on Justin McCarty’s RBI single in the top of the first, Shelbyville went ice cold.

    Morehead scored nine unanswered runs during the next five innings to grab a seemingly safe lead.

    But Post 37 would not be denied.

  • Post 37 wins two in wet tourney

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team picked up two victories in three games during the weekend, but it missed out on a possible tournament title.

    The weather halted games on Thursday and Friday, but Coach Jim Wiley said he wanted to make sure the visiting teams got some games. Only one game was played Friday, Shelby's opener against Ashland.

    The Storm Club, a Cincinnati club, played in Frankfort on Friday, and the rest of the teams picked up doubleheaders on either Saturday or Sunday.

  • StateTournament boasts 8 Top 25...

    With five of the top six teams in the state and 11 of the top 30, it’s no secret that the State Softball Tournament, starting Friday at Jack C. Fisher Park in Owensboro, is a tough field.

    But balanced it doesn't seem to be.

    The top half of the bracket is spilling over with ranked teams -- No. 1 Christian County, No. 5 Mercy, No. 6 Allen County Scottsville, No. 20 Franklin County, No. 22 Garrard County, No. 29 Ashland Blazer and No 30 Shelby County.

  • Sharks cranking out records

    The Shelby Sharks swim team completed the first two long-course meets of the summer season with outstanding results.

    The Sharks set 17 team records and added 30 Long Course State qualifying times.

    Coach Jeremiah Heath praised his team's work ethic.

    "Some of the best accomplishments I'm seeing right now are the desire to do better and the understanding of how to become better," he said.

  • Girls ready for No. 1

    The SCHS softball team isn't too worried about facing No. 1 Christian County in the opening round of the State Softball Tournament this morning at Owensboro.

    "We get number one in the first round, so if we beat them, we'll just breeze through," senior Haleigh LeCompte said jokingly

    The girls know that the tournament is full of top teams, especially in their half of the bracket, in which seven of the eight are in the top 30. But even with No. 1 and all the other top teams, the Lady Rockets' focus won't change.

  • SCHS football team shaking off...

    The SCHS football team is trying to shake off a little rust while getting ready for the season.

    This past  weekend the Rockets traveled to the University of Louisville for the team's first passing tournament of the summer and started that process of getting the parts in tune.

    The U of L tournament consisted of 10 pools of four teams each. Each team played three pool games, and if a team finished undefeated, it advanced to tournament play.

  • Coming soon: Rockets vs. Titans

    Titans once ruled the universe, but now they’ll settle for ruling Shelby County and the 8th Region.

    Teams at the new Martha Layne Collins High School will be called Titans and wear Columbia blue, black and white as their colors when the school opens in 2010-11.
