    On July 1, 1965 Susanne and I gave a dinner party in honor of Millard and Marguerite Cox of Louisville.

  • Shelby goes on winning streak

    The Shelby County softball team capped an impressive weekend of performances with a 10-3 drubbing of visiting Tates Creek Monday night.

    Along with notching 10 hits as a team, the Rockets were able to take advantage of numerous mistakes by the Commodores, needing just four RBIs in total to pick up the win.

    Loran Trent and Anna Abarientos each logged two runs batted in in the victory.

  • Rockets hold off Manual

    The Shelby County baseball team used some key late offensive performances and a great outing by pitcher J.P. Marcum to earn a 3-1 decision over Manual on Saturday morning.

    Marcum earned a no-decision on the bump, but kept the visiting Crimsons from doing much of anything at the plate, giving up just three hits and one earned run while fanning eight hitters with six walks allowed.

  • Titans end skid with blowout win

    The Collins baseball team was searching for a way to put an end to its six-game losing streak on Monday night and did so in a huge way, pounding visiting North Bullitt 17-5 and moving to 15-16 this season.

    The Titans came out aggressive at the plate, and it showed, as the team rolled up 12 hits and turned in a 10-run effort in the bottom fourth to end the game via run-rule after five innings.

  • Collins wins pair of weekend games

    The Collins softball team continued to add on to its winning streak, traveling to Louisville and handing host Sacred Heart a 10-5 loss on Monday night.

    With the victory over the Valkyries, the Titans are now winners of five consecutive games and seem sharp heading into the 30th District Tournament held later this month.

  • Titans gun down Bearcats

    It wasn’t the state record setting home run derby that the April 18 meeting between the two teams was, but that didn’t mean the rematch of Collins and Anderson County softball squads on Wednesday night was any less eventful.

    In a contest that eventually came down to a key defensive play by Titans center fielder Hallie Renfro, it was the home team edging out the Bearcats (9-10) by a narrow 3-2 margin.

  • Shelby County girls earn 3rd at region
