  • 11-year-olds slip up in district

    The Shelby County 11-year-old Cal Ripken All-Star Team started the District Tournament at with a bang last week, but the team fizzled fast.

    However, Shelby County will get a shot to make up for the losses. As the host for the State Tournament this week, Shelby County automatically earned a spot.

    Shelby opened the district with a dramatic, 3-2, victoryover host and eventual champion Scott County.

  • Rockets take WKU passing title

    The SCHS football team came back from a two-week dead period, shook off the rust and whipped the competition for the title at the Western Kentucky University passing tournament Saturday.

    Shelby County was a perfect 7-0 in the tournament and saved the best for last.

    Passing tournaments are often filled with fast-paced games featuring high scores, but Shelby County shut out Riverdale High School of Murfreesboro, Tenn., 34-0.

  • 13-year-old All-stars get home...

    Shelby County's 13-year-old Babe Ruth All-star team is a well-rounded squad that is hoping to improve on last year's district run.

    The team lost to Frankfort in the district, but they did advance to the state tournament as the host team.

    This year, the squad will get to play the district tournament at home.

    "I think that's an advantage for us," Coach J.R. Wiley said. "The guys are little more comfortable here, and they're used to the field."

    Wiley said the team's defense should be a strength.

  • Oldest all-stars a combo effort

    With lower Babe Ruth League participation this season, Shelby County’s oldest all-star baseball squad is now a combination of 14-and 15-year-olds instead of two teams.

    “We didn’t really have enough 15-year-olds to make a team, but after a few practices I think we have the makings of a pretty good team,” Coach Dave Neison said. “The combination of the teams could be a detriment because of the 14s playing up, but they’re pretty well-prepared players.”

  • Post 37 splits doubleheader with...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team split back-to-back doubleheaders against Bowling Green and Paducah.

    "We played four really good games," Coach Jim Wiley said. "Both of those teams are good, but we had a chance to win all four games."

    The boys played two against Bowling Green on Tuesday at the University of Louisville and took the first game, 3-2, before falling, 6-4, in the second game.

  • Bigger, stronger 12-year-old all...

    After falling in the district tournament last year as 11-year-olds, Shelbyville's Cal Ripken League 12-Year-Old All-Star Team returns nearly intact -- with one major change.

    "The biggest thing I see with this group is that they've gotten a lot bigger," Coach Mike Dugle said. "They have really gained a lot of size and strength from last year."

    Dugle said the team is basically the same this year, with the addition of two or three new players, and he said his team is hungry.

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team went 3-2 at the Paducah tournament over the weekend, and the team showed its coach something.

    Shelbyville went 2-1 in pool play to advance to the tournament play, in which it beat Sullivan, Mo., 5-2, on Saturday.
