    After advancing to the AA state meet at the Kentucky Horse Park the previous four years, Collins head Coach George Sanderlin said he wanted to see improvement from year to year.

  • HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Shelby...

  • HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Carias...

  • HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Crucial...

    Prior to Friday’s Hometown Showdown matchup Shelby County (4-4, 1-2 in district) needed a win versus Collins to remain eligible for the postseason. A loss would have pushed the Rockets to 1-3 in district tying them with Spencer County, but because Spencer County beat Shelby in district play the Bears would have owned the tiebreaker pushing them in to the playoffs instead of the Rockets.

    However, Spencer County’s playoff hopes would come to a close, as Shelby County defeated Collins 28-20.

  • Don’t trip, get to know me first

    Hey Shelby County, my name is Les Abbott and I’m the new Sports Editor for The Sentinel-News.

    I just wanted to take a few words here and introduce myself – but I have to let you know one thing right off the bat.

    Don’t hate me, you’ll see I come by it honest, but I just can’t root for the Cards.

    Wait! Let the other half stop cheering and come back. I also can’t root for the Cats. Nope, not a Hoosier. Can’t do the Vols, and it’s not a Western or Eastern kind of thing, either.

  • HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Spencer...

    The Shelby County High School football team couldn’t get out of its own way Friday, falling 16-14 at Spencer County in a pivotal district game.

    The Rockets dropped the ball on the ground seven times, losing three fumbles and killing several drives.
