    For the second consecutive year, both the boys and girls basketball teams at Collins High School will host a ‘Meet the Titans’ event.

     “This is our second year doing Meet the Titans,” boys basketball coach Chris Gaither said. “My director of basketball operations, Kevin Perdue, organized the event for us last season and is working to make it even better this year.”

  • Zaxby’s expanding its reach

    Shelby residents may feel like they are experiencing a case of déjàvu right now as they pass by Zaxby’s buildings all across the county.  Simpsonville welcomed the chicken restaurant Monday with the first new location’s grand opening.  Meanwhile, the Shelbyville store is gearing up for its transition to the new site, which is currently under construction adjacent to CVS Pharmacy on the Shelbyville Bypass.

  • Murals to go up in Shelbyville today

    Starla Martin’s mural of a stabled horse on a Washington Street building has attracted much attention since it was revealed in September and organizers of the community public art project say there’s more where that came from.

    Today four additional pieces of artwork on large-scale banners promoting “ways to play” will be unveiled across downtown Shelbyville.

    Katie Fussenegger, Executive Director, ShelbyKY Tourism & Visitors Bureau said they are pleased with how quickly the project is coming along.

    April 28, 1941

    At sea – two days East of Norfolk. Today at Tactical school Capt. Reeves [Wasp’s Commanding Officer] told us our mission, the first word we have had of our destination.

    Both Shelby County and Collins high schools will advance their boys and girls’ cross country teams to the KHSAA Class 2A State Meet after qualifying in the regional meet Saturday.

  • Shelby slays undefeated Dragons

    As the old saying goes, one play can help decide an entire football game.

    The Shelby County High School football team found out that was true when defensive lineman Drew Mack blocked an extra point in the first quarter of Friday’s 33-32 win over South Oldham.

  • Titans fly past Bearcats, 41-21

    The Collins High School football team honored its seniors’ final home game with a 41-21 defeat of Anderson County on Friday night.

    And one of the Titans’ seniors came up huge in the win.

    Payton Hawk hauled in five balls for 130 yards and three scores to give Collins (6-4) its sixth win of the year.

    “It feels great [to catch three touchdowns on senior night],” Hawk said. “It feels amazing. I think we did a great job of executing that our game plan tonight.”

  • Morehead hit the ground running

    In the Shelby County Rockets’ triple-option offense every runner is a threat to break away, aiding in the misdirection caused from fake handoffs.

    But none have been more valuable than the fullback, or ‘b-back’ whose job it is to pick up the tough yards between the tackles.

    With the graduation of Malik Manica, junior Caleb Morehead has seized that role this season, all while leading the team in rushing, despite having missed one game due to injury.

  • Collins faces familiar foe in Western

    To borrow a phrase from the famous Yogi Berra, “It’s déjà vu all over again” for the Collins Titans as the 2016 KHSAA Class 4A playoffs get underway this week.

    Collins will travel to Western High School to face the Warriors Friday.

    “They are really big and loaded with athletes all over the field,” Collins quarterback J.R. Lucas said. “They always are. It’ll be a good game, like the times we’ve played them before.”
