    Poehlein is the mother of rising Collins senior Shelbi Poehlein, who was the runner-up in the coaches voting for 8th Region Player of the Year this past season.

  • Post 37 rolls to tourney title

    Even though his team won its first three games in the 34th annual Shelbyville American Legion Invitational baseball tournament, long-time Post 37 Manager Jim Wiley felt like his squad hadn’t hit the ball very well.

    That changed Sunday.

    Shelbyville slugged 14 hits – 10 for extra bases – in a 19-2 pummeling of Paducah Post 31 in the final of the four-team tournament on Bobby Stratton Field at Clear Creek Park.

  • SCC, Weissinger No. 1 win matches

    The Shelbyville Country Club and Weissinger Hills No. 1 teams posted victories in the PGA Junior League’s second event of the season Saturday at Weissinger Hills.

  • Griffins shoots 73

    Shelbyville’s Josh Griffin shot 1-over-par Tuesday in the first round of the 2014 Clark’s Pump-N-Shop Marathon Kentucky Amateur golf tournament.

    Griffin, a 2011 Collins High School graduate, carded a 73 at Cherry Blossom Golf & Country Club in Georgetown.

    “I’ll take it, but boy it coulda been lower had I made some easy putts,” Griffin, a senior at Eastern Kentucky University, tweeted after his round.

  • Miller made his mark his senior...

    For much of his first three years of high school athletics at Collins, Paul Miller was the blond-haired, blue-eyed poster boy for patience, persistence, perseverance, perspiration and preparation.
    However, only one word is needed to describe Miller’s recently completed senior year – winner.
    As a three-sport starter, in boys’ soccer, basketball and baseball, all he did was win, win, win.

  • Cloyd honorable mention all-state

    Recent Collins graduate Sydney Cloyd has been named all-state honorable mention by the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association.
    Cloyd, a standout for the Titans, was one of 11 players to be named to the Class AA team (10 made the first team and 11 the second). She hit .348 with team-highs in home runs (seven) and RBIs (44), and also had 14 doubles and two triples, for Collins, which finished 18-20.  

  • Brown bags 1st victory of season

    Making himself right at home on the course at Chattahoochee Country Club, Brandon Brown set a sizzling pace, then cruised to his first victory of the season.
    The Shelbyville professional golfer built a 7-shot lead – thanks in large part to a course-record tying 62 in the first round - in the first two days, then cruised to the win in the NGA Pro Tour’s Milton Martin Honda Classic this past weekend in Gainesville, Ga.
    The victory was his eighth – which ranks third all-time – on the NGA Tour, and his first this season in three events.

  • Post 37 rolls in season-opener

    It took the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team until the district tournament to get above the .500 mark last year.
    It took it one game to do so this year.
    Post 37 rallied to beat Rockport (Ind.) 5-2 in its season-opener Sunday at Clear Creek Park.
    Shelbyville, which lost its first three games last year on its way to a 12-15 finish, took a 2-0 lead in the third inning before Post 254 rallied to tie it in the fifth frame. Post 37 retook the lead with one run in the bottom of the seventh, then tacked on two more in the eighth to earn the victory.

  • SCC takes opening Jr. PGA match
