  • It’s on to regional tournament

    The Shelby County 9-year-old Cal Ripken All-Star Team played for a state championship Tuesday night knowing that it had already earned a spot in the national regional tournament.

    Shelby County, which lost its first game of the 2012 East Kentucky State Tournament to host South Lexington, 19-5, Saturday at Shillito Park in Lexington, bounced back to win four consecutive games over Sunday and Monday to earn a rematch with South Lexington in Tuesday night’s final.

  • Wiley tied for 9th after 1st...

    Shelbyville’s Candice Wiley is tied for ninth place after the first round of the Lexmark Kentucky Women’s Open golf tournament.

    Wiley, a Shelby County graduate and current University of Louisville golfer, shot a 3-over-par 75 at Champion Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville on Tuesday.

    She is eight shots behind Louisville’s Lindsay Gahm, who shot an opening-round 67 to claim the tournament lead, but is only three shots out of second place.

  • This beauty battles a beast

    A more beautiful woodpecker than the Red-headed Woodpecker would be almost impossible to find, and even then, it would be a matter of opinion.

    The Red-headed Woodpecker has a bright red head and neck with conspicuous white inner wings and rump. The rest of the body is black, which can give off a slight bluish tinge in the bright sunlight, a coloration that certainly makes this bird a strong candidate for the most patriotic bird in America.

  • Balanced team advances

    The Shelby County Cal Ripken 11-year-old all-star baseball team’s biggest strength may be its balance.

    “What we have is a lot of players who can play a lot of different positions,” Coach Jeff Crisp said. “We have a really versatile team…the flexibility of the team is what makes them so good.”

  • Tune-up game would have helped

  • Post 37 walks away with 2...

    It has been a bounce-back and a comeback week for the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team.

  • Borders completes cross-USA trip

  • Strong pitching, powerful...

    The Shelby County Cal Ripken 9-year-old all-star baseball team ran roughshod over its competition in the District 2 Tournament.

    It will look to carry that momentum over in the 2012 East Kentucky State Tournament this week.

  • Shelbyville rebounds in big way

    The Shelby County Cal Ripken 10-year-old all-star baseball team showed that sometimes it’s good to be forgetful.

  • Shelbyville routed twice in...
