  • Shelby County rallies to top Collins

    Game one of the two-game set between rivals Shelby County and Collins high schools went to the Rockets on Wednesday night, as the Rockets rallied late for a 2-1 victory.

    The win did not come without controversy, however, as a call in the top of the seventh inning swayed the result of the game permanently.

    With two outs and the bases loaded, Titan first baseman Evan Payne had a chance to knot the game, with the count sitting at two balls and two strikes.

  • Rockets take round one from Titans

    Seven innings was simply not enough to decide a winner between Collins and Shelby County’s softball teams on Wednesday night.

    Eight frames were needed in the first of two meetings between the county rivals this season, with the Rockets pulling out a 6-5 district win.

    Tied at 5-5 in the top of the eighth, outfielder Haley Vermillion scored what proved to be the game-winning run following an errant throw on a sacrifice bunt attempt from teammate Lauren Heckel.

  • Crowe heads to the Arizona Cardinals

    Growing up in Shelbyville, Austin Crowe never thought he would be working in a capacity with an NFL team, but that dream has become a reality.

    The former equipment manager for both Shelby County and Collins high schools recently accepted a post as an intern with the Arizona Cardinals’ equipment staff, and will be assisting the team through its training camp in the summer months.

  • Keeping a positive pace

     With violence and anger spewing from just about every corner of America, it’s a tough time to be a kid.  But one program is teaching young girls to power through their emotional struggles.

    Girls on the Run, which kicked off at Southside Elementary this year, inspires girls to take charge of their lives and define the future on their terms.

    Available to girls in grades 3-8, the program combines running with a curriculum based on building positive relationships.

  • Investing in the future

     Hollie King, owner of Eight Twenty 8 Boutique on Main Street, is proud to invest in the next generation.

    “I honestly believe that they are the future,” King said, standing in front of a hand painted sign designed by a young Shelby County entrepreneur, Annali White. “She painted that. She brought it in as a ‘Thank you for putting my stuff in your store.’”

    King opened the boutique in October in the former Tipsy Gypsy location at 610 Main Street and said she was elated when two young girls approached her with their designs.

  • Rockets pick up two wins over weekend

    The Shelby County baseball team closed out its 4-1 record over the last week with a pair of victories and one loss, at the hands of Silver Creek, Ind. in the late afternoon on Saturday.
