  • SCHS volleyball team wins 2

    The Shelby County volleyball team won a pair of matches, the Rockets’ second and third in a row. Shelby County spoiled Henry County’s Senior Night, beating the Wildcats, 25-18, 25-10, last Thursday night and then rallied Monday night to beat host Owen County, 20-25, 25-11, 25-22.

    Against the Wildcats, the Rockets were led junior Shelby Tooke with four aces, sophomore Dasia Jones and seniors Chelsey Howell and Caty Hawkins with two kills apiece, and junior Ariana Jones and sophomore Kyndle Pace had three digs each.

  • Titans play their best but just miss an upset

    The Collins boys’ soccer team out-shot, out-possessed and for the most part outplayed eighth-ranked Male on Saturday.

    The only problem?

    The host Bulldogs outscored the Titans, 1-0, to take home the title in the final of their Bulldog Cup. Brian Romero’s rebound goal in the 22nd minute was the difference.

  • Fumbles, penalties, Colonels' big plays diffuse Rockets

    Like a bad penny, some recurring problems keep turning up for the Shelby County football team.

    As they have been several times this season, Friday night the Rockets were plagued by fumbles and penalties – in addition to Oldham County’s quick-strike offense – in their 48-14 Homecoming loss at Robert Doyle Stadium. 

  • Battling Brooks leads Titans to 1st shutout

    A titanic effort from Michael Brooks carried Collins on Friday night.

    Brooks, a senior running back/linebacker, rushed for 113 yards and one touchdown while recording 25 tackles and forcing two fumbles in the Titans’ 21-0 victory – the first shutout in program history – at Spencer County in its Class 4A, District 3 opener.

    “Michael, he was just unbelievable to watch,” Collins Coach Jerry Lucas said.

  • Titans, Rockets give it too many shots

    Monday was a disappointing day for the Collins and Shelby County boys’ golf teams.

    No member of either squad advanced out of the 6th Region Tournament at Seneca Golf Course.

    The Titans took sixth place – the top two teams qualified for next week’s State Tournament at Bowling Green Country Club – with a score of 326, and the Rockets came in 17th (374).

  • Finchville Fall Festival: Annual event brings in 100s

    The cool temperatures and rainy weather matched the weekend's official turn to fall, but they didn't stop the community from turning out for the Finchville Fall Festival. The annual event brought hundreds to its epicenter at the Finchville Ruritan Club where a big yard sale enticed buyers, and plenty of fun surrounded the booths.

    Fresh vegetables and gourds were available, and everything from an antique tractor show to a dunking booth and games were available to help ignore the wet weather.

  • Shelby County schools’ KCCT scores rocket upward

    Shelby County schools saw improved scores district-wide Tuesday in the most recent batch of results for the Kentucky Core Content Tests.

    The so-called CATS tests measure elementary, middle and high school scores in reading, math, science, social studies and writing, and the district topped the state's Proficient and Distinguished rating, its top rating, in all categories except high school social studies and writing. Those categories fell well short of the state’s mark.

  • EARLIER: Shelby's Adequate Yearly Progress lags vs. fed goals

    Although Shelby County Schools showed improvement across the board in KCCT testing, the federal No Child Left Behind results don’t take that into account.

    NCLB results released Tuesday show that only two Shelby County schools, Painted Stone and Wright elementary schools, met 100 percent of their Adequate Yearly Progress goals.

    However, seven of the remaining nine schools met at minimum of 73 percent of their AYP goals, and only Shelby County High School was lower, with 61.5 percent.
