  • Friends and rivals

    As another school year comes to an end, Shelbyville golfer Grace Clark and Rylee Suttor are just seeing their schedules start to fill up with various summer tournaments over the next two months.

    Suttor, an upcoming senior at Collins, and Clark, an incoming sophomore at Shelby County, each excelled for their respective teams last fall and will embark on the solo season over June and July to help improve their skills and make a name for themselves state-wide.

  • Post 37 routs Evansville Pate

    The Shelbyville Post 37 baseball team kicked off its first weekend of the season on a high note, using a big third inning explosion to run-rule Evansville Pate, Ind. 11-1 on Saturday afternoon.

    Brett Pfaadt’s two-RBI single capped off the six-run effort in the third, allowing Shelby to take a five-run advantage, 6-1, after three frames.

    The Shelby team used two singles and an error to get six runs across in the third inning, rebounding from down 1-0 early to pick up the win.

  • Hicks steps down as SCHS...

    After the conclusion of its most successful baseball season since 2010, Shelby County will be searching for a replacement for its head coaching position after the resignation of Devin Hicks last week.

    Hicks attributes his decision to wanting to spend more time with his family, something he has not been able to do since taking over in 2015.

  • Post 37 begins search for...

    The Shelbyville American Legion team will look to add another state championship to its ever-growing resume this season, using some familiar faces while sprinkling some newcomers into the team.

    Catcher Zane Baker will return from Spalding University for his third year as a member of the team, anchoring a group of players with a good amount of pitchers on roster this season.

    In total, the team will showcase 11 different players that should all see time on the mound, providing the team with a good amount of flexibility in its lineup.

  • Shelby’s Ellis, Hicks earn...

    Capping off a fantastic season in which Shelby County went 20-11 and claimed its first 30th District Championship since 2010, catcher Matthew Ellis was named the 8th Region Player of the Year, while skipper Devin Hicks earned the Region Coach of the Year award.

    “It means a lot [being named the region player of the year],” Ellis said. “I started off the year slow, but my teammates, coaches and family kept helping me and I ended up finishing very well and was able to win the award.”

  • Former Collins baseball players...

    As the collegiate baseball season winds to a close, three former baseball players from Collins High School have helped lead their respective teams to success this season.

    Buddy Johnson, Zac Wiley and Austin Perry each helped earn their teams postseason success this season, with all three excelling in their areas of the sport.

  • Overton named Asbury coach

    Former Shelby County soccer player Elyse Overton (formerly Cottrell) is getting back into the sport full-time after being named Asbury University’s women’s soccer coach.

  • Kendall shows versatility at...

    With Shelbyville showcasing its ability as a hotbed for state champions in track and field over the past few years, its almost unsurprising to see that athletes getting their start at the youngest levels of competition are already making waves state-wide.

    However, the area that Painted Stone Elementary student and Shelbyville-native Emma Kendall stands out in most is her versatility as a track athlete at such a young age.

  • Looking back on the sports season

    As the 2017-18 school year and the sports seasons with it came to an end last week, it got me thinking back on some of the top moments from both the Collins and Shelby County’s accomplishments during that time.

    Here are my top-five moments from this past season, in chronological order:

  • Collins falls to Oldham in...

    Just when it seemed as if Collins was in control of its 8th Region championship game against Oldham County on Wednesday night, the momentum rapidly shifted to the Colonels’ side of the ball, coming on one at-bat.

    Leading 2-0 with one out, Collins’ Cassie Rannells pulled a shot down the line, but Oldham’s third baseman pulled in the hot shot and doubled off the base runner at third to end the inning.

    The Colonels would ride that momentum from the field and add two runs in each of the fourth and fifth frames to take the lead.
