Varsity picked up a conference win on senior night, 7-0. Kaleb Schaf held the second shutout of the season. Oscar Hernandez, Alex Gil, and Eddie Carrizalez led the attack that started with a goal 3 minutes in and didn’t let up until the final whistle.  On Saturday, the Golden Bears took on HHC-leading and undefeated Yorktown. Shelbyville was determined not to start slow again after a long road trip. Mission accomplished as Alex Gil scored within the first 30 seconds of the contest. The goal was set up after Gil, Eddie Carrizalez, and Oscar Hernandez combined for a nice passing sequence to get Gil behind the defense. Shelbyville controlled the possession for much of the first half but were unable to find a second goal. Yorktown took momentum through the second half, and were awarded a penalty after Sam Price’s handball. The Tigers converted to level the score. A tight finish saw no goals during the rest of regulation or both overtimes. Eddie Robledo started the shootout with a make, followed by Gil’s make. Kaleb Schaf was able to save Yorktown’s second attempt. In the third round, Drew Hassebroek converted and Yorktown’s shot missed the net. Brock Pitman’s shot was saved and the Tigers converted to put pressure on Hernandez with the last kick. Hernandez was able to find the back of the net to give the Golden Bears the victory.

Girls Soccer

 The Lady Bears were defeated by Pendleton Heights on Tuesday Night.  The Girls will travel to Triton Central on Thursday starting at 5:30 pm. The Shelbyville Golden Bears started the first half off right against their county rival the Triton Central Tigers with a goal from Becca Valdez off of an assist from Ava Wilson. Moments later Triton would have an own goal that made the halftime score 2-0, Shelbyville with the lead. In the second half, Valdez continued to show great effort in her play off the ball that created more space and opportunity for the Bears as Sophie Parker put one in the net for Shelbyville, and moments later again Valdez would score her second goal for the night giving the Bears the victory with a final score of 4-1. Great possession play was had by the whole Bears team.   The Girls Soccer Team defeated Delta on Saturday 4-3.  Evelyn Kiefer recorded a hat trick scoring 3 goals and Sophie Parker netted a goal.  The offense was on attack most of the day and the girls moved its record to 4-4 on the year and ended the week 2-0.  The girls will travel to Connersville on Tuesday for a 5:30 pm start.


The Varsity Volleyball team was defeated by New Castle on Tuesday night.  The team moves to 6-4 on the year.  The JV won in 2 and moved to 8-2 on the year.  

The Golden Bears move to 10-4 on the season after winning the prestigious Noblesville Invitational. Six of the ten sets were decided by two points against some of the premier competition in Indianapolis. After winning a back and forth battle against Western Boone, the Golden Bears had a rematch over Franklin Central where they were victorious in two straight sets. 

The championship match lived up to the hype between the host Noblesville Millers. A back and forth first set led to a narrow victory for Shelbyville. Fatigue took place over the teamand the Millers were able to capitalize. A final push to close the set, Shelbyville trailed 15-23 but made it a five point loss losing 20-25. After the second set it was all Shelbyville. Great serving pressure from Emma Nolley forced a 13-1 lead in the third set and the final kill by senior Macey Kuhn ended the match and the tournament 15-3. 

Senior Audrey Reinhart was able to join a prestigious club over the weekend collecting her 1000th career dig against Noblesville. Reinhart is currently on pace to contend for the career leader of digs. Shelbyville plays host to #2 in 3A Greensburg on Tuesday Night.
