  • Minor League All-star teams...


    Troy Kuhl is in his first year coaching the All-stars at the park, but he couldn't be more excited about his 9-year-old team.

    "I think we have a really good chance this year," he said. "We're a very talented team, and we have a lot of really good players. The biggest challenge for us will be figuring out which nine players to put on the field because we have so many good players."

  • Post 37 drops Scott County, 4-1...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team finally won a close game that wasn't in the teens.

    Shelbyville topped Scott County 4-1 on Tuesday with a quiet night from the bats.

    "I didn't think we played real good," Post 37 skipper Jim Wiley said. "Baseball is one of those games where the one guy can control it, and that's what happened (Tuesday). Their pitcher really controlled the game. Just because you beat somebody 14-1 (like Shelby beat Scott on June 17), doesn't mean you'll do that the next time."

  • Rockets finish passing season at...

    The SCHS football team traveled to the University of Kentucky's passing tournament Saturday to end the summer session.

    The Rockets went 3-0 in pool play to advance to tournament play and then knocked off Prestonsburg in the first round before falling to Manual in the quarterfinals.

    "You know how sometimes you're just not clicking on one side of the ball?" SCHS head coach Todd Shipley said. "Well, we weren't clicking on either side."

  • Post 37 pitching starting to...

    Shelbyville American Legion manager Jim Wiley still isn't sold on his team's pitching, but after wining two out of three over the weekend, Wiley did something he hasn't done all year: compliment the pitchers for three straight solid games.

    "I don't know if we have it figured out or not, but we got three really solid games from our pitchers," he said. "We played three pretty decent teams and got good pitching against all of them."

    Shelbyville closed out the weekend with a 5-2 win at Owensboro.

  • SCHS well represented on...

    Jessica Williams was picked to play for the West Senior All-stars over the weekend. Williams played in all three of the team's games -- one each against the West juniors, East juniors and East seniors -- and helped lead the team to a 3-0 record.

    In the first game Saturday, Williams was 1-2 with a two-run double and a run scored in the West Seniors' 6-0 win over the East Juniors. In Saturday's second game, a West Seniors' 8-3 win over the West Juniors, Williams was 1-1 with a single and a stolen base.

  • Wiley makes cut at Women's...

    With a two-day score of 160, Candice Wiley was right on the cusp of making the cut at the Women's Public Links Tournament Tuesday.

    In fact, she was so close that she and seven other golfers were forced to play a play-off hole. The top seven of the eight would make the cut.

    "I knew it would be close when I finished my round," she said. "I kept sitting there hitting (refresh) on the computer to see the scores. Finally, I said 'Mom, we have to go back to the golf course.' When we got there they were still playing, and I was bouncing back and forth between in and out."

  • Rockets grab passing title at...

    The SCHS football team wrapped a perfect run through the Grant County passing tournament Saturday with a 45-29 win over Western Hills in the championship game.

    While Western Hills started strong, the Rockets' defense stiffened in the second half, basically shutting Western Hills down.

    "They have a big quarterback, about 6-6, 220, with a rifle arm, and they scored 14 points in the first half, but they didn't score again until late in the game," SCHS head coach Todd Shipley said. "We played a little more man defense and changed up our coverages some."

  • Post 37 falls in championship...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team had an offensive weekend that a team could only dream of. The boys amassed 54 runs on 59 hits, including five home runs, over just four games at the Shelbyville American Legion Invitational Thursday through Sunday.

    However, despite those amazing offensive statistics, the team left the park Sunday feeling empty.

    Shelbyville scored eight runs on 11 hits in the championship game against Cassville, Mo., but came up short, losing 10-8, mainly because of committing six errors.

  • Post 37 drops Morehead

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team continues to score runs in bunches, but this time it got some pitching to go along with the team's hot bats.

    Shaun Fredricks threw just 72 pitches in an 11-0 complete-game win at Morehead Tuesday. Shelbyville then combined Fredricks' dominating performance with eight hits and eight walks to control the game.

  • Post 37 splits first two games

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team opened its season over the weekend, losing 12-11 at Danville Saturday and then winning the home-opener against Rockport, Ind. 20-10 Sunday.

    Scoring 31 runs in two games would normally make a head coach happy, but Jim Wiley said he's not content at all with his team's performance over the first weekend.
