  • Heady named Ky. Mountain Trail,...

    After nearly two decades of both trail and long-distance running, USA Track and Field has named Shelby County resident Cynthia Heady the Kentucky Mountain Trail and Ultra Female Runner of the Year.

    “Honestly, receiving the award was more humbling than anything,” Heady said. “I just love running, and it’s neat to be recognized for it and it makes me realize how much I want to give back to the running community.”

  • Edwards to compete in second all...

    A month after being named to the Louisville Metro All-Star team for his kicking prowess, Shelby County kicker Josh Edwards will take part in the 10th annual Kentucky-Tennessee Border Bowl in Gatlinburg, Tenn. on Jan. 21.

    Edwards was a standout for SCHS during the 2016 season, handling both punting and kicking duties.

    The senior is also a member of the school’s basketball team, and at one point, was juggling practicing for two all-star games as well as the hoops squad.

  • Collins to hit road for month of...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team will face by far its toughest test on the schedule when it plays 10 straight games away from home, beginning tonight against Shelby County.

    And the Titans will face most, if not all, of the games without starters Jacob Feltner and Nick Fort, as the duo recovers from injuries.

    Both guards were injured in Friday’s 59-51 win over district foe Spencer County, with both impairments coming during the final minutes of the game.

  • Shorthanded Titans defeat South...

    With forward Dominique Turner still missing time due to an illness, the Collins boys’ basketball team relied heavily on Charlie Cochran and the team’s bench in Monday’s game against South Oldham.

    And the Titans (14-3) got just that, defeating the Dragons 71-65.

  • Collins picks up 2 wins over...

    With guards Nick Fort and Jacob Feltner missing extended time due to injury, and forward Dominique Turner out with an illness, the Collins boys’ basketball team received an extremely efficient performance from Charlie Cochran to help vanquish Grant County (8-8) in overtime Saturday.

    The senior forward posted his second consecutive double-double in as many days, scoring 25 points on 71 percent shooting and grabbing 12 of the team’s 34 rebounds to help lead the Titans (13-3) to the 59-51 victory.

  • Rockets drop tough game at...

    Despite drawing first blood against Anderson County on Friday night, the Shelby County boys’ basketball team could not hold the Bearcats for a full four quarters.

    The Rockets (3-11) grabbed a quick 2-0 lead to start the game thanks to a back door cut from senior guard Jordan Armstrong, but it would be the team’s final lead of the game as Anderson (10-4) outscored SCHS 64-51 to grab the district win.

    Armstrong led the Rockets in scoring with 14 points and pulled down six rebounds in the contest.

  • Titans drop district game to...

    A sloppy game from both Collins and Spencer County girls’ basketball teams found the Titans on the wrong end of the scoreboard on Friday night.

    Although they forced 17 turnovers, Collins committed 18 turnovers of its own in the 57-44 loss.

    Spencer County used a big second half, scoring 36 points to finally pull away.

  • Collins, Shelby finish 3rd, 4th...

    Both the Collins and Shelby County swim teams took to the pool Wednesday for the first time since the Christmas break and finished in the top-four behind teams from Boyle County and Danville.

    On the girls’ side of the team standings, Collins earned a third-place finish with 211 points behind winner Boyle County, which ended with 298.5 points.

    Shelby County slotted right behind the Titans, with 128 points.

  • Shelby fighter brings boxing...

    Elvis hasn’t left the building. In fact, he just arrived.

    The sport of boxing is coming to Shelbyville this Saturday, and no one is more excited for the opportunity to fight in front of his home crowd than Shelby-native Oscar ‘Elvis’ Jimenez.

    Jimenez, after all, has lived in Shelby County for more than half of his life, and has wanted to compete in his hometown since becoming a professional fighter.

  • Collins outlasts South Oldham in...

    Thanks to a strong fourth quarter and overtime period by freshman point guard Olivia Federle, Collins girls’ basketball knocked off a very strong South Oldham team Wednesday night.

    Federle scored six points in the final 12 minutes of play, including one of the team’s two baskets during OT as Collins earned the tight 46-44 win over the Dragons.

    Titans’ head coach Sean Pigman says he emphasized to Federle to be more aggressive offensively during the second half of the game.
