    When Lilly Young walked off the course at the Oxmoor Golf Club two weeks ago as the champion of the Big I regional tournament she knew exactly whose steps she was following.

    After rolling into the state tourney finals with two solid wins, the Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion baseball team ran into some hard luck, dropping their next two games to Post 31 of Paducah to finish second in the state at Brooks Stadium in Paducah.

    It’s been a good summer for Collins High School senior guard Grant Clarkson as he had a chance to showcase a new weapon in his game.

    It wasn’t the best start for the Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion baseball team, but the end result could be the same.

    “We’re here, we’re finding ways to win,” Post 37 coach Roy Bailey said. “That’s what good baseball teams do.”

  • Russell enjoys stay at GSP

    If you need a road race planned or maybe even need to set up a spy agency then Shelby County High School senior Jeron Russell may be your man.

    With solid play from the top to the bottom of their lineup the Shelby County Little League 10-year-old All-Stars took second in the District II title game Wednesday with a 17-8 win over North Oldham.

    It was a one through nine effort for Shelby, which has been the case for the team, with several players making key contributions throughout the game.

    “To be honest with this team it has been a team effort,”

    All-Stars coach Terry Strong said. “The defense has been really good and we have hit the ball pretty well, too.

  • Non-district schedule is loaded

    The non-district schedules of both local high school football teams will see them face off against some of the top players in the state.

    With Collins and Shelby County in the same district this year, both will have to contend with one of the state’s toughest 4A districts and both have plenty of competition on hand in their seven non-district opponents.

    Based on information in the 2015 Cats’ Pause Football Yearbook, which came out this week, local fans will have a chance to watch several players who will battle for all-state honors.
