  • Shelby golfers competing at KY...

    The first and second rounds of the Kentucky Women’s Open Golf Tournament will see 63 golfers competing at the University of Louisville Golf Club in Simpsonville over two rounds of action during Tuesday and today.

    Several former and current Shelby County athletes are part of the field, with current Rockets’ coach Candice Iceman among them.

    Iceman, who last competed three years ago, has been preparing for this year’s tournament by playing alongside PGA Mackenzie Tour golfer and husband Daniel Iceman in Pro-Am events.

  • Wet conditions will slow...

    With the first round of the Kentucky Women’s Open Golf Tournament wraps its final round today at Simpsonville’s University of Louisville Golf Club.

    According to the course’s head golf professional, Chad Stocker, competitors can expect some soggy areas on the course due to recent weather conditions.

    “I would say the course is long wet fairways,” Stocker said via phone interview. “Conditions have been wet recently. [Competitors] can expect long roughs, and greens are going to be rolling downhill.”

  • American Legion State Tournament...

    By first pitch of the Kentucky State American Legion Tournament opening round, Shelbyville Post 37 will have had ample time and opportunity to size up its opponent in Lyon County Post 68.

    After all, Shelby has faced Lyon three times this summer, taking the regular season series from its opponent 2-1.

    Most recently, Post 37 earned a pair of wins in dramatic fashion on July 14, defeating Post 68 twice in a doubleheader.

    All three matchups with Lyon have been close, with Shelby’s loss coming by a one-run margin back in June.

  • Post 37 blows away Floyds Knobs

    Using three innings of incredible offensive output, Shelbyville’s American Legion team blew out Floyds Knobs, Ind. by a score of 12-4 on Wednesday night at a game held at Bellarmine University in Louisville.

    The game served as the regular season finale for Post 37, which ends its campaign with a record of 10-9.

    After a slow start at the plate, Post 37 was able to plate 11 of its 12 runs in the win over its Indiana-based opponent from the fourth through the sixth innings alone to come away with the blowout win.

  • Fields to take part in...

    Collins High School freshman Evan Fields will compete in the biggest fishing tournament of his young life on August 1-3, as the angler is set to compete at the Bassmaster High School National Tournament at Kentucky Lake on the border of Kentucky and Tennessee.

    “My expectations for the tournament is not to win, but to do the best I can and just try to learn for future tournaments,” Fields said. “Of course I would love to win or place high, but if I learn as much as I can and try my hardest, I think that would be okay too.”

  • Oldham rallies late to top Post...

    A pair of late mistakes allowed Oldham County Post 39 pick up the win over Shelbyville in a Monday night meeting at Bellarmine University.

    Clinging to a 1-0 lead for much of the contest, Post 37 was undone on a pair of wild pitches in the top of the sixth inning, allowing Oldham to escape with a 2-1 win.

    Despite taking the loss, Shelby’s pitching was fantastic, as Post 37 limited its opponent to just three hits over the entire game.

  • Stingrays close regular season...

    With the Summer Fun League Championships on the horizon for later this month, the Shelbyville Stingrays will head into title contention with plenty of momentum after defeating Polo Fields in Louisville on Monday night.

    “Overall we swam well, especially with our relays. We had a few [disqualifications] that we plan to fix before Saturday at the championship meet,” Swim coach Tom Coons said. “They [Polo Fields] were a quality team. Most likely, they will be our biggest rivals to beat at championships.”

  • Post 37 picks up 2 wins

  • Post 37 splits weekend slate

    The Shelbyville American Legion team continued its quest for another state title over the weekend, splitting two games against Ashland Post 76 and bringing the team’s record to 5-7 so far this summer.

    “First off it was a very warm series. We had 12 kids this weekend and we hit the ball well,” Post 37 coach Matt Buresh said. “We did really well. We rallied well in the second game. I think we had 25 hits in two games and they [Ashland] didn’t stop us hitting-wise.”
