  • SCHS, Collins girls split 2 games each

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team bounced back from one of its most lopsided losses of the season with its biggest victory of the season this past weekend.

    The Rockets fell at Woodford County, 76-43 on Friday night but rebounded with a 52-24 victory over visiting Kentucky Country Day on Saturday evening.

    WOODFORD COUNTY 76, SCHS 43:The host and hot-shooting Yellowjackets (11-5 after the victory) hit 11 3-pointers to sting the Rockets by 33 points (which matched the deficit of Shelby’s season-opening 51-18 loss to Collins).

  • SCHS girls, Collins boys finish 4th at Lake Cumberland Winter meet

    Collin Kessinger and Michael Troutman led their respective swim teams to fourth-place finishes Saturday in the 2012 Lake Cumberland Winter Invitational in Somerset.

    Kessinger, a junior at Shelby County, was victorious in two events to lead the Rockets girls’ team, and Troutman, a sophomore at Collins, won one event to top the Titans boys’ squad.

    Meanwhile the Collins girls’ team finished fifth, and the Shelby boys’ squad took eighth.

  • Cold-shooting Rockets flame out twice at home

    It was a weekend of some frustration and a little celebration for the Shelby County boys’ basketball team.

    The Rockets dropped a pair of home games, losing to Beth Haven, 63-52, Friday night then falling to Beechwood, 72-61, Saturday night in the inaugural Tom Creamer Classic.

    It was unseasonably warm outside Friday night, but it was chilly inside Mike Casey Gymnasium for the Rockets, who shot just 24.3 percent in the loss to the Bearcats (12-2 after the victory).

  • 2nd-quarter hole too deep for Titans

    A sluggish second quarter cost the Collins girls’ basketball team Friday night.

    Visiting Anderson County outscored the Titans by 12 points in that period on its way to an 11-point victory, 51-40, over Collins in a key 30th District game that decided the top two seedings in next month’s tournament.

    “We dug ourselves too big of a hole,” said Titans Coach Phillip Conder, whose team trailed by nine points at halftime and couldn’t get closer than six in the second half.  

  • 3-pointer at buzzer ends Titans’ rally

    Another boys’ basketball game between Anderson County and a team from Shelby County, another last-second, game-winning 3-pointer.

    You can add Friday night’s game between the Bearcats and host Collins to a list that already includes the 2009 8th Region final, when Anderson County beat Shelby County on C.J. Penny’s buzzer-beater, and last season’s Shelby County-at-Anderson game, which ended with Eric Schreiner’s improbable bank-in.

  • Questions remain about how merger affects JHS

    The long discussed hospital merger finally went through on Friday, although not exactly as planned.

    After Gov. Steve Beshear last week had vetoed a merger between Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCare, Saint Joseph Health System and University Hospital in Louisville because of complications between public and private institutions and separation of church and state, but on Friday JHSMH and St. Joseph's, which is owned by Denver-based Catholic Health Initiatives, announced their merger.

  • How Collins’ turf field went bad

    On July 8 the Shelby County Board of Education invited representatives from all the principal companies that built the Collins High School multipurpose athletic to come to the school and peel back the turf for a first look at why this year-old surface had developed soft spots that left it unusable.
