  • Shelby shows strong in fishing...

    At its biggest contending field thus far, Shelby County bass fishing is making a name for itself as a contending team in the state.

    More than 400 fishermen and 200 boat captains competed in the Student Angler Federation State Tournament at Lake Cumberland on April 1, with SCHS anglers Dylan Steinmiller and Chandler Meadows earning a 26th place finish at the event.

    Shelby fishing coach Craig Slaughter says the tournament went a long way in solidifying the team’s confidence heading into the KHSAA postseason.

  • Lex Cath edges out Collins late

    Good pitching beats good hitting.

    The Collins baseball team is familiar with that mantra after being limited to just four hits and one run in the team’s 2-1 loss to Lexington Catholic on Tuesday night.

    Led by University of Kentucky-signee Trip Lockhart, the Lexington (6-4-1) product struck out six Titans and allowed no earned runs in the win over Collins (7-7).

  • Shelby falls to Meade in five...

    The weather may have been a metaphor for Shelby County baseball in its matchup with Meade County on Wednesday afternoon.

    With navy-tinted storm clouds creeping in overhead, the Rockets notched just two hits – off the bats of infielders Mitchell Stivers and Tyler Stinson – en route to a 15-0 run-rule defeat at the hands of the Green Wave at Christian Academy-Louisville.

  • Headfirst wraps triathlon series

    This weekend, Headfirst Performance will host its third and final triathlon event beginning at Clear Creek Park in Shelbyville.

    The event will consist of a 400-yard swim, 16-mile bike race, and finally, a five-kilometer run to complete the Shelbyville Triathlon Series, which began on February 26.

    “This is the longest distance event that we have done,” Headfirst Performance owner Todd Heady said. “You don’t have to particularly do the other races in the series, it’s open to anyone who wants to do it.”

  • Lawmakers look at concussion...

    Kentucky lawmakers took time to focus on student-athlete safety this session, specifically focusing on concussions with House Bill 241.

    The bill requires a licensed physician to check student-athletes who suffer head injuries before returning to action. If no physician is available on site, the athlete may not participate in practice or a game until an evaluation is given.

    Both Collins and Shelby County high schools were already in position to follow the new rules, haven previously taken steps to have trainers and doctors on the sideline.

  • Shelby dominates Breckinridge

    After more than a week between games due to rainouts, Shelby County baseball was ready to get back on the diamond and exploded to blow out Breckinridge County 14-1 on Monday.

    The Rockets (4-6-1) rode a dominant pitching performance from starter Domingo Garcia, who allowed just five hits and no earned runs while striking out seven in a complete game victory.

    Along with Garcia’s fantastic night on the mound, SCHS compiled 18 hits as a team to help earn its fourth win of the year.

  • Titans rally to top Central...

    Down 2-0 after five innings of play, Collins baseball was looking for a way to grab its first lead of the game over Central Hardin on Monday night.

    In the top of the sixth, runners Michael Hill and Matthew Hershberger were waiting on first and second, respectively, for the Titans (7-6) when catcher Zane Baker stepped to the plate.

    On the third pitch of the at-bat, Baker blasted a shot over the leftfield fence, and opened up a 3-2 lead over the Bruins (3-6).

  • Clark captures PGA Jr. title

    While the spring and summer months may technically be the offseason for high school golfers, Grace Clark is laying the smack down in Kentucky PGA junior events.

    On the weekend of March 25-26, the eighth-grader from Shelby County High School earned a first-place finish in the Girls High School Division Kentucky PGA Junior Tour Match Play Tournament in Danville.

  • Collins capitalizes on...

    Manufacturing runs and riding a hot-hand on the mound led to Collins seizing an early lead, and eventually a 5-1 win over a visiting Assumption team on Wednesday night.

    The Titans (6-3) scored five runs over four separate innings thanks to defensive miscues by the Rockets (5-7).

    Assumption committed four errors in the loss that led to three unearned runs for Collins.

  • Oldham rallies past Collins

    Untimely errors decided a pitcher’s duel between Collins baseball and Oldham County on Tuesday night.

    The three hurlers from both the Titans and the Colonels combined to strike out 20 batters and allowed just two earned runs between them.

    Unfortunately, two unearned runs on fielding mistakes set the final score at 3-1, with Oldham leaving the victor.
