    The Collins football team opened the Class 4A playoffs with a 49-0 mauling of Moore on Friday night at Robert Doyle Stadium.

  • Crusade assistance

    A $64,000 grant from WHAS Crusade for Children helps Shelby County Public Schools purchase technology assistance equipment for students with special needs. For example, at Wright Elementary, James Robinson left the classroom with an instructional assistant carrying an IPad purchased with WHAS grant monies. He knew exactly how to turn it on, retrieve a story, turn on the sound and flip the screen to read a book out loud for him and a kindergarten buddy.

  • Signs of the time

    West Middle principal Lorri Stivers (front row) turned to look at Simpsonville Elementary fifth-graders who vow to go to middle school on or above grade level in reading and math. Their vow is based on Simpsonville's 100 academic index and the T-shirts they were wearing: Simpsonville Bobcats + West Middle Warriors + Collins Titans = College and Career Ready.

  • Newcomers luncheon

    Students new to the school enjoy eating a pizza lunch and getting to know the staff and each other at the “newcomers luncheon,” held each month at Clear Creek Elementary.

  • Andriot makes 1st team all-state in soccer

    Collins junior midfielder Walker Andriot has been named first-team all-state by the Kentucky High School Soccer Coaches Association, and senior defender Matthew Murphy was named All-State honorable mention.

    The honors were announced Wednesday night at the 2011 KHSAA Boys’ State Soccer semifinals at Paul Dunbar High School in Lexington.

    Andriot, an honorable mention selection as a sophomore, had a team-high eight goals and three assists for the Titans (11-7-2), who lost to Ballard, 3-2, in the 8th Region Tournament semifinals.

  • Late riser wants to finish early

    Shelby County senior Thomas Harnois joined the cross-country team as a junior at the urging of another runner.

  • Titans, Rockets face tough fields

    Saturday’s Class 2A, Region 3 girls’ cross-country meet will be like a mini version of the State Meet, but more competitive.

    That’s because it will feature six of the Top 10 teams from the coaches’ association rankings, but only four of those will qualify for next Saturday’s State Championships.

  • Hyman flying downhill for Rockets

    Once Deric Hyman started running downhill he became a heat-seeking Rocket, or at least a tackle-seeking one.

    The Shelby County junior middle linebacker has been a standout this season for the Rockets, especially in the past month.

    “The last four games he’s played exceptionally well,” Shelby County Coach Todd Shipley said.

    The Rockets (2-8) will need that to continue tonight, when they travel to undefeated John Hardin (10-0) in the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. in Elizabethtown.
