  • Brown bags another victory

    This past weekend was one full of creature comforts for Brandon Brown.

    He got to sleep in his own bed, spend a little time around friends and family and play on a golf course that “felt like home” to him.

    And Brown, a native of Shelbyville, made the most of the familiar surroundings, carding an 18-under-par 270 at Cherry Blossom Golf & Country Club in Georgetown to capture the NGA Hooters Pro Golf Tour’s Cherry Blossom Classic by one stroke.

  • Collins’ Karas goes for a...

    Triple crowns are hard to come by.

    It's been 33 years since Thoroughbred racing has produced a Triple Crown winner and 44 years since major-league baseball has had one.

    Collins junior Caterina Karas will go for her own triple crown Thursday in the Class 2A 2011 KHSAA State Track & Field Championships, which begins at 1 p.m., at Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park on the campus of the University of Louisville.

  • Kregor opens play Thursday

    Last week Paige Kregor knocked off the second- and fourth-seeded players on her way to the final of the 8th Region girls’ tennis tournament.

    This week, Kregor, a freshman at Collins High School, who fell to top-seeded Katie Howard of Western Hills in the 8th Region title match on  Thursday, will have to go through more ranked foes if she wants to advance in the 2011 KHSAA State Tennis Tournament.

    She begins play Thursday morning at the University of Kentucky’s Boone/Downing Tennis Center.

  • SCHS baseball team drops 2 of...

    The Shelby County baseball team closed out its regular season with a 9-3 loss at Oldham County on Friday night. 

    Kody Noonan’s solo home run highlighted a 3-run fourth inning for the Rockets (15-13) in their loss to the Colonels (17-10).

  • Collins will host Anderson in...

    Due to field conditions at Spencer County tonight's 30th District baseball final between Collins and Anderson County will be played at 6 p.m. on the Titans' home field.

    If it is rained out, then the game will be played at 1 p.m. Saturday at either Spencer or Collins.

    Wednesday night the Titans beat crosstown rival Shelby County 15-3, for the second time this season, in the 30th District semifinals on their home turf. Meanwhile, Anderson beat Spencer County 5-0 in a game that was resumed from Monday.

  • SCHS baseball, softball games...

    The Shelby County baseball and softball teams had their 30th District Tournament games against Eminence suspended Monday evening.

    The Rockets' softball team led the Warriors 4-0 in the top of the third inning, while Shelby's baseball team led Eminence 2-0 in the bottom of the second.

  • Karas nudges her way to 3 titles

    Neither rain, nor cold, nor a little nudge, or two, could derail Caterina Karas on Tuesday night.

    Karas, a junior at Collins High School, won three events – the 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs ­– in the Class 2A, Region 3 meet at Christian Academy of Louisville under cool, rainy conditions.

    "I just came out here wanting to put myself in position to triple, and I did it, so I’m pretty excited about it," said Karas, who beat two defending state champions to do that.

  • Go hard and have fun

    There are certain things that Kelly Cable has come to expect from Hannah Abbott.

    Cable, Shelby County’s softball coach, knows that Abbott, her senior catcher-first baseman, will play hard.

    "She's always been just a ball of fire," Cable said. "She's just always been all out all the time. She doesn’t know what it means not to give a hundred and ten percent." 

    She knows that Abbott will do anything requested of her.

  • Kregor falls in final

    Collins freshman Paige Kregor fell in the 8th Region Tennis Tournament girls’ singles final Thursday.

    Western Hills’s senior Katie Howard, the top seed in the tournament, bettered No. 6 seed Kregor 6-2, 6-4 at Franklin County High School.

    Kregor still advances to next week’s State Tournament in Lexington.
