  • Post 37 swings past Scott County

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team bounced back from a tough weekend to top Scott County 13-10 Tuesday.

    Shelbyville banged out 12 hits, including seven for extra bases, but still had to rally for the win.

    Scott County jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first, and had a 10-5 lead after three.

  • Lady Rockets' rally falls...

    OWENSBORO – After a quick start, the Lady Rockets couldn’t hold Ashland Blazer back.

    The girls saw a 2-0 lead turn into a 6-2 deficit before scoring twice late in the game to trim the final margin to 6-4.

    The loss knocked Shelby County from the softball State Tournament Friday, ending the Lady Rockets’ season.

    Early on it looked as if the Lady Rockets would rebound from a tough first-round loss to Christian County.

  • Post 37 drops three in opening...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team got one gem in a tough 1-3 weekend at Western Kentucky University.

    Shelbyville lost three close games but got a no hitter from Tyler Layton on Sunday to notch the team’s first victory this season, 2-0, against Bedford, Ind. Layton was just one walk in the sixth inning from a perfect game. A former Shelby County pitcher now playing for Georgetown College, he had six strikeouts in the win and faced just 22 batters.

  • Lady Rockets struggle in opener

    OWENSBORO -- No. 1 Christian County looked like the best team in the state Friday morning, steam-rolling Shelby County, 10-0, in five innings in the first round of the State Softball Tournament at Owensboro's Fisher Park.

    The Lady Colonels (39-3) led 3-0 going into the top of fifth when they erupted for seven runs on six hits and one error.

    "They did what we knew they could do," SCHS Coach Kelly Cable said of the big inning.

  • Legion team opens play this...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team has wasted no time getting started this year.

    The team will travel to Bowling Green this weekend to play four games at Western Kentucky University.

    Though his roster isn’t completely set just yet, Coach Jim Wiley said the team should be pretty good.

    “We got a few guys back from last year, and I think we’re going to be pretty good,” he said. “We’ll find out in a hurry.”

  • Lady Rockets out at State

    OWENSBORO -- The SCHS girls’ softball team’s seniors will be back in time for graduation, much to their dismay.

  • Graduation memories

    Would you rather cross the stage for your diploma or slide across home plate with the winning run?

    That’s the question facing four SCHS softball players tonight.

    Katie Case, Shauna Gramig, Farren Holland and Haleigh LeCompte are the only seniors on the SCHS softball team that takes the field today in the double- elimination State Tournament at Jack Fisher Park in Owensboro.

    The decision could be simple.

  • Senior leaders keep focus while...

    Whether it was Katie Case singing songs from “Lion King” before the region title game, Haleigh LeCompte making up new Shelby cheers or the senior group coming up with new eye-black dots, these seniors know what it takes to win.

  • Baseball star Stallings signs...

    Daniel Stallings was in that familiar seat alongside his parents in the Shelby County library on Friday afternoon,

    His teammates sat in three rows of chairs facing him, and numerous other friends, coaches and well-wishers crowded in behind them as he took up a pen and signed his name to a letter-of-intent to play baseball at Asbury College.

    But this celebration was not so much about Stallings the outfielder as it was about Stallings the graduating senior. In this defining moment, his character dominated the discussion over his statistics.

  • EARLIER: Shelby runners move on...

    Led by a strong group of runners, Shelby County’s boys track team finished fourth at the Class AAA Region 4 meet this week at Male High School in Louisville.

    Shelby totaled 68 points in trailing winner Ballard (126), Trinity (122) and Oldham County (79).

    Shelby’s girls finished seventh with 15 points in the meet also won by Ballard  (122).

    The top two individuals and teams and the other top 10 times will move on to next week’s state meet in Louisville, and Shelby County will be well represented.
