  • Sandhill Crane migrates through...

    The Sandhill Crane is 41-to-46 inches with a wingspan of 73-to-77 inches wide and weighs 7.3-10.6 pounds. They are usually seen migrating south in long V-shaped flocks from around Thanksgiving until around the first of January and then back north again in early February until early March.

  • Semipalmated Plover stops by on...

    The Semipalmated Plover is an uncommon to fairly common migrant through Kentucky, but is very rare in the summer.

  • Shelby hosting districts

    This year’s 8th Region softball champion could very well come out of the 30th District with a top 10 team and two other teams on the cusp of a top 25 ranking.

    In No. 7 ranked Anderson County along with Collins and Shelby County, both of whom have flirted with the top 25 this season, next week’s district tourney will likely go a long way in deciding who will win the regional crown.

  • Bruner shows well at kicking camp

    The Collins High School football team may just re-load its kicking game this coming fall if Noah Brunner has his way.

    Brunner, a senior-to-be next fall, is the likely candidate to replace first team all-stater Blanton Creque and took a big step toward picking up where Creque left off with a strong performance at the nationally renowned Chris Sailer Camp in Las Vegas.

    “It’s the biggest national kicking event going,” Brunner said. “Kickers from all over the country came.”

  • Shelby boys second in region...

    Always the competitor, Jacob Gowin took the good with the bad at the regional meet and plans to get better.

    Gowin, a Shelby County High School senior, kept himself among the state’s elite by winning the AA regional pole vault title Tuesday at North Oldham with a leap of 13-6, a personal record. He also took second in the high jump at 6-feet even, four inches under his best jump this year.

  • Goss wins regional discus title

    It will be a little bit of the old and the new for the Collins High School track program as they head into the AA state track meet next Friday.

    Collins had three competitors, Gabby Karas, Kyle Goss and Jay Solinger qualify for the state meet Tuesday in the regional at North Oldham High School as the boys team took ninth place with 31 points and the girls finished fifth with 40 points. North Oldham swept the boys and the girls titles.

  • Shelby player fall in state...

    It was another big step for the Shelby County High School tennis program as the three Rockets who reached the state meet played well against the state’s best players.

    Luke Dove and Josh Barry reached the second round where they fell to Covington Catholic’s brother team of Jake and Jared Haught 6-2, 6-2. And Jeron Russell lost in opening road to Alex Spalding of Marion County.

  • Collins falls to Male

    With everything pointing toward the start of the postseason next week the Collins High School baseball team started a killer stretch of six games with a 3-1 loss to No. 16 Male Thursday.

    The Titans came back from that to fall to Eastern and Bullitt East but scored a win over North Bullitt in a tournament at Eastern over the weekend.

  • Shelby softball wins two

    The good thing for the Shelby County High School softball team was they were able to post some big scoring innings, the bad thing was there were not enough of those innings, as the Rockets posted a 1-2 record in the Charger Classic at Jeffersontown.

    “We are doing a better job at stringing hits together and pushing runs across the plate,” Shelby County coach Kelly Cable said.

    The Rockets’ lone win came 6-2 over Southern thanks to a six-run third inning.

  • North Oldham beats Collins 9-5

    A four-run burst in the sixth inning gave North Oldham all the cushion they needed as they powered their way to a 9-4 win over Collins High School Monday.

    In a matchup between two of the region’s best baseball teams, the Mustangs got out to an early 5-0 lead, saw Collins (19-10) cut the lead to one, and then pulled away for good in the sixth.

    “It seems like we have been doing that here lately,” Collins coach Roy Bailey said. “We have a bad inning or two and can’t get back from it.”
