Schreiner named to all-tournament team

Shelby County junior guard Eric Schreiner was named to the all-tournament team at the 13th annual East-West Roundball Classic this past Saturday at DuPont Manual in Louisville.

Schreiner scored 20, 13 and 15 points in three games to be named one of the Top 10 players in the tourney.

Shelby County baseball called off for tonight

Shelby County's baseball game at Bishop Brossart, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. tonight, has been called off due to rain.

The Rockets next host Nelson County at 6 p.m. Thursday evening.

Collins baseball called off today

Not surprisingly Collins' baseball game against Meade County scheduled for 6 p.m. today has been called off due to rain.

Trinity-Collins baseball game stopped by rain

Friday night's game between 11th-ranked Trinity and Collins was stopped with no out and a runner on first base in the top of the fifth inning due to heavy rains that moved through the area. The Shamrocks led 8-3 at that point, but the game wasn't official because it didn't go the full five innings.

Trinity scored once in the top of the first on Phillip Leopold's RBI-doubel.

Brown shoots 67 today

Shelbyville's Brandon Brown bounced back from a rough first round to shoot a 5-under par today in the second round of the NGA/Hooters Terry Moore Ford Open. He is currently tied for 14th.

Brown shot a first round 75, but has turned in what is the lowest second round so far. Let's hope he can carry that momentum into the weekend.

Collins baseball wins first game 11-1

The Collins baseball team won its first-ever game Thursday (unfortunately it was too late to get it in Friday's paper), beating Henry County 11-1 on the Titans' new field.

Tyler Tipton went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and a run scored to lead Collins, which broke open the game with a four-run third inning.

Junior left-hander Cody Adler picked up the victory on the mound for the Titans. He went four innings (of the six-inning game), allowing three hits and one earned run while walking one and striking out eight.

Billy G. is back

Former University of Kentucky men's basketball coach Billy Gillispie is back in the business. As many expected Billy G. has been named the new coach at Texas Tech. Good move or bad move for the Red Raiders' program? He does bring a slight name recognition to the job, and a knowledge of the state, but I'm not sold on him yet.

NCAA Tournament bracket breakdown

The Kentucky and Louisville men's basketball teams each received No. 4 seeds in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, whose field was announced tonight.

Here is my quick take on the brackets.


Troutman edged out for state title in backstroke; Kessigner 7th in 100 breaststroke

Collins senior Carson Troutman was edged out by three-tenths of a second in the 100-yard backstroke final at the KHSAA State Swimming & Diving meet at the University of Louisville's Ralph Wright Natatorium on Saturday.


St. Xavier junior Michael Scheid won the 100 backstroke in 51.21 seconds while Troutman, who had the fastest preliminary time in the event, finished second in 51.52.

Troutman also finished fifth in the 100 freestyle earlier in the afternoon.
