    My first actual experience with the Black-billed Cuckoo was on Sept. 6, 1976, when I was able to discover the second nest of this species ever recorded in Kentucky.

    It contained four eggs and was 8 feet above the ground in the Lyon County portion of the 170,000-acre Land-Between-the-Lakes National Recreational Area in Western Kentucky.

    Meade County spoiled the Collins football team’s season-opener last year.

    The Titans will try to return the favor against the Green Wave beginning at 7:30 tonight in Brandenburg.

    However, Collins Coach Jerry Lucas knows it won’t be easy against the Class 6-A school.

    Under its new coach, Collins girls’ golf team will continue to focus on the present but also have an eye on the future.

    Once again this season the Titans will field a young team, with more than half its roster made up of middle-schoolers.

    SCHS girls’ golfers fade in Villa Madonna event

    The Shelby County girls’ golf team finished sixth out of 10 teams at the Villa Madonna Invitational this past Saturday.

    The Rockets carded a collective 357 in the more difficult of the two divisions, which only included three Kentucky teams. Massillon Jackson (Ohio) won with a 328, while one team from Sacred Heart Academy shot a 344 and another Valkyries squad fired a 345. Notre Dame Academy finished with a 352.

  • Rockets rally to district...

    LAWRENCEBURG – Shelby County's volleyball victory at Anderson County Monday night really was as close as the final 2-point margin.

    But the perspective on what happened in the tiebreaker was much wider.

    Trailing, 6-1, with Anderson seeming to have everything going its way in the decisive game, Shelby County Coach Felicia Pace called timeout to give her team a very simple reminder.

    “I told them we have to have some backbone,” Pace said. “We were not playing with it.”

    SUMTER, S.C. – The slumbering bats of Alabama state champion Tuscaloosa, Ala., woke up in a big way when Alec Adamczyk banged a grand slam off the top of the left field-wall in the top of the sixth inning, launching Post 34 to a 13-4 victory over Shelbyville Post 37 in an elimination game in the American Legion baseball Southeast Regional tournament at Riley Park on Friday.

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team was eliminated from the Southeast Regional Tournament on Friday.

    Tuscaloosa, Ala. rallied from an early deficit to beat Shelbyville 13-4 at Riley Park in Sumter, S.C. That came after Post 37 was defeated 3-2 by Lynchburg, Va. in its first game Thursday.

    SUMTER, S.C. - Dylan Caruso had pitched a total of 19 1/3 innings for Virginia state champion Lynchburg entering the American Legion baseball Southeast Regional on Thursday at Riley Park.
    Yet there he was, toeing the rubber in Post 16’s opening game against Kentucky state champion Shelbyville.
    The right-hander showed why Cardinals head coach Chris Glaize made that decision, tossing seven shutout innings as Lynchburg defeated Post 37 3-2 in Sumter, S.C.
