  • 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.

    The squad shook off an 18-0 loss to Scott County on Friday night by turning around some 12 hours later and routing the same team, 18-2, in Saturday morning’s District 2 Tournament final at Clear Creek Park.

  • Shelbyville routed twice in...

    It was a woeful weekend for the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team.

    Shelbyville lost, 9-2, at Evansville, Ind., on Saturday, then was routed by Rockport, Ind., 19-3, Sunday.

  • Inspired Sharks ready to swim

    Fresh off the United States Olympic swimming trials and with the London Games just 16 days away, there has been a lot of national interest in the sport, especially with the Michael Phelps vs. Ryan Lochte rivalry.

    However there has been even more relevance locally as Louisville’s Clark Burkle and Western Kentucky University alum Claire Donahue made the men’s and women’s U.S. swim teams respectively.

  • This bird’s future is hampered...

    I had not seen or heard a Dickcissel in Shelby County since the early 1980s until the late spring of 2010. I was just north of Shelbyville on Ben Zaring's farm on the east side of Smithfield Road, searching for another species of bird, when I heard the telltale song that always gives this bird's location away.

    The Dickcissel sings out his name with his song of "dick-dick-cissel" that is repeated over and over again.

  • Clifton’s hit presents 2nd...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team ended its Fourth of July game with a bang.

    Nate Clifton’s RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning helped cap off a comeback and give Shelbyville a 9-8 victory over Somerset at Clear Creek Park on Wednesday afternoon.

  • SCHS’s Thomas finishes 5th in...

    Shelby County sophomore-to-be Madison Thomas tied for fifth place overall and also won her age group at the Pepsi Junior Golf Tour’s girls’ Kentucky Junior Amateur Championship, which took place Monday and Tuesday at Maywood Golf Course at Bardstown Country Club.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s dead period, the annual moratorium on school-sponsored team and individual activity, ends at 11:59 p.m. Monday.

    Many of the fall sports teams at Collins and Shelby County, however, won’t conduct their first official practices until the following week.

  • Team talking title after rout of...

    To the Shelby County Cal Ripken 10-year-old all-star baseball team, its first-round victory in the District 2 Tournament was just the first step.
