  • Shelby County finishes 4th

    BOWLING GREEN – The Shelby County girls’ golf team had some frustrating moments individually at the 2011 Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA State Championships, but collectively it turned out well for the Rockets.

    Shelby County finished fourth in the two-day event at the Bowling Green Country Club– its second-best state finish. The Rockets carded a collective 694 (118-over-par) thanks to a 348 in Friday’s first round and a 346 in Saturday’s final round.

  • Nakatani's kick lifts Titans over Mustangs

    Collins football coach Jerry Lucas was out-numbered.

    With the Titans trailing unbeaten North Oldham by one point, and facing a fourth-and-1 at the Mustangs’ 8-yard line late in Friday night’s de facto Class 4A, District 3 championship game, Lucas called a timeout to consult with his assistant coaches.

    He presented them with two options – 1. Try a field goal or 2. Go for the first down and eventually a touchdown.

  • Rockets let one slip away against Eagles

    For the Shelby County football team Friday night was all about the PTGA – points that got away.

    The Rockets built an early 13-0 lead at North Bullitt, generally considered the preseason favorite in Class 5A, District 4, but couldn’t hold on as the Eagles rallied for a 14-13 victory at C.T. Collins Field.

  • Karas sisters finish 1,2 but Titans take 2nd

    It was only fitting that Collins’ sister act of Gabby and Caterina Karas took the top two spots in Saturday’s inaugural Titan Classic.

    Gabby Karas, a seventh-grader, won the race while her older sister, senior Caterina, finished second to lead the Collins girls’ cross country team to a second-place finish in the event that was held at Shelby County’s course (the same one that will be used for the Nov. 5 Class 2A, Region 3 meet). 

  • Mustangs rout Rockets

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team’s season of improvement came to an end Monday night.

    The Rockets fell to North Oldham, 9-0, in the first round of the 16th District Tournament at Oldham County.

    Shelby County finished the season with a 6-12-1 record – four victories more than the Rockets had last season.

  • SCHS volleyball wins finale

    The Shelby County volleyball team had to work a little extra, but the Rockets beat host Scott County, 25-16, 33-31, to spoil the Cardinals’ Senior Night Thursday in Georgetown.

    “The girls had a fabulous end to their regular season,” Shelby County Coach Felicia Pace said. “It was quite an exciting match-up, and I hadn't seen the girls play so confidently and with such power all season.”

  • Spencer knocks out Collins

    A season that started with promise came to an abrupt end Monday night.

    The Collins girls’ soccer team, which won seven of its first eight matches this year, was shut out 6-0 by Spencer County in the first round of the 16th District Tournament at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    It was the third loss in the last four matches for the Titans, who were without four players (for various reasons) who had started during the regular season.

  • Titans quickly take care of Rockets

    The Collins boys' soccer team struck early, and often, Thursday night.

    The Titans tallied three goals in the first 13 minutes on their way to a 6-0 shutout of cross-town rival Shelby County at the Rockets’ Athletic Complex.

    Collins beat Shelby County 3-0 in the season-opener for both teams on Aug. 16. In that match the Titans led 2-0 at halftime, but couldn’t quite run away from the Rockets.

    It was a different story this time around.
