  • Collins, Shelby post strong weekend results

    Both Collins and Shelby County girls’ golf teams posted stellar outings on the links in weekend tournaments.
    Saturday was a history-making day for Collins High School.

  • Rockets limp off in road loss to Chargers

    Forget the injury bug, the Shelby County High School football team got mauled by an injury bear Friday in a 56-31 loss to Bullitt East.

    The game saw five Rockets starters – Tyler Drane, Drew Mack, Keshawn Catlett, Collin O’Hare, and Caleb Morehead – all leave the game with injuries. Catlett and Morehead’s were the most serious of the bunch, with both suffering head injuries and being taken away in ambulances.

  • Boyle hands Titans first loss of season

    Boyle County High School appears to be better than its record lets on.

    The Rebels (2-3) handed Collins (3-1) a 49-30 loss on Friday night, ending the Titans three-game winning streak.

    “Offensively, I felt like we weren’t as crisp as we have been this season,” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “We turned the ball over a bit, but Boyle County, year-in-and-year-out, is one of the top programs in the state. We like having our kids play against them.”

  • Rockets handle Collins by 28 stroke margin

    The Shelby County girls’ golf team celebrated senior night with a victory over cross-town rival Collins by a 28-stroke margin at Weissinger Hills on Thursday night.

    Senior Lilly Young was the medalist of the match, leading all players with a 40 in the victory. Fellow seniors Jenna Lewis and Jennifer Fuqua posted a 41 and a 47 respectively, while junior Faith Wiley chipped in with a 41 of her own.

    The Rockets defeated the Titans by a final score of 169-197.

  • Mustangs run past Shelby in straight set victory

    North Oldham proved to be a little too much for the Rockets, as the visiting Mustangs swept Shelby County 3-0 Thursday.

    “One big thing we take away from a match like this is the level of competition needed to go beyond district and region,” Shelby County coach Kristen Kapp said. “My girls need to realize that no matter the level of competition, they need to play their hardest on each point.”

    The first set was a rocky one for the Rockets, who started out of the gate slowly and only mustered seven points.

  • Finchville welcomes fall

    Tomorrow officially marks the first day autumn and the Finchville Ruritan Club will welcome the season with open arms with its annual festival offering fun and festivities for the whole family.
