    The Sanderling is more commonly seen in Kentucky during the autumn migration than the spring migration. You see it mostly along the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers but they regularly occur at all of the commonwealth’s better shore bird areas again especially in autumn as early as July 12 and as late as Nov. 17.

  • Lady Rockets roll by Moore

    After the snow kept them out of the gym for three days the Shelby County High School girls’ basketball team shook a little rust off Monday with a 66-22 win over Louisville Moore.

    With the frontline combining for 43 points, the Rockets (17-3) took control of the game early and then used their defense to limit the Mustangs to just 8 second half points en route to getting a running clock in the final quarter.

  • Lady Rockets hammer Spencer

    The Shelby County High School girl’s basketball team beat their opponent, beat the storm and kept their No. 1 seed in the district tournament hopes alive with a 56-39 drubbing of Spencer County Thursday.

    “We just wanted to get the game in and not get it pushed back,” Shelby County coach Jason Holland said. “It really had no implication on the seeding once we won. It does keep our chances alive of being the top seed if Collins can upset Anderson County Friday.”

  • Oldham nips Collins on last...

    In the last second of a basketball game a rugby scrum broke out and Collins High School came out on the short end.

    Oldham County’s Jacob Bates came out of a mad scramble for a loose ball and shoveled an underhanded pass to Brandon Johnson right under the basket for a layup with 0.02 seconds left to give the Colonels a 46-44 win over the Titans Thursday.

    The shot ended an action packed final four seconds in the game that was tight throughout and a re-match of last year’s regional finals won by Collins.

    The Lesser Yellowlegs is fairly common throughout Kentucky but is less numerous on the Cumberland Plateau and in the mountains during migration.

    They are extremely rare in the summer and are considered accidental in winter. A late winter date that they have been seen is Feb. 20 and a late autumn date was actually in the early winter on Dec. 29.

    The Thayer’s Gull breeds on Queen Elizabeth Islands and northern Nunavut including north Baffin Island west of Greenland in the high Arctic.

    They winter along the coast from northwest British Columbia on down to southern California and wander to our area.

  • Lady Titans drop a pair of games

    Playing their third game in four days and coming off an emotionally and physically draining win over arch rival Shelby County the Collins High School girls’ basketball team dropped a couple of tough games last week.

    The Titans (11-8) fell to Oldham County 57-56 on a last second shot and then dropped a road game 78-54 to a strong East Jessamine team.

  • Lady Rockets fall to Anderson

    Not much went right on Anderson County's final possession last Tuesday, but the Lady Bearcats will take it.

    Trailing archrival Shelby County, 50-49, with 23 seconds to play, Anderson came out of a timeout with what seemed to be a game-winning strategy – point guard Mia Aldridge was to drive the lane for a layup or get fouled. At least that was the first option.

    But when Shelby dropped into a zone, the path to the basket was closed. Aldridge rifled a pass to Kaci Currens, who had hit just 2-of-9 three-point shots on the night, in the left corner.

  • Rockets hold off Titans

    Tyler Drane learned a thing or two about pace as the quarterback of the Shelby County High School football team that won the regional title but establishing and controlling pace is just what Drane and the Rockets’ basketball team needed to edge rival Collins 48-44 Friday.

    “We kind of did play their pace, but we did win the game and that’s what counts,” Drane said. “We knew they wanted to play a little slower than we do and that they could shoot the ball well. We just wanted to play good defense and not make many mistakes.”

  • Lady Titans edge Shelby in...

    After turning in one of the best games of her career to lead the Collins girls’ basketball team to a 56-54 double overtime win over Shelby County, Michelle Roberts wanted to praise her younger teammates.

    “They can all shoot and that made the difference for us,” Roberts said. “I know it makes my job a lot easier.”

    Roberts, a senior guard, scored 20 points for Collins, but it was a pair of assists to a pair of freshmen guards – Jeian Hayes and Carson Murray – who buried key 3-pointers during the game to spark the Titans.
