  • Upperclassmen give Shelby shot for 2017

    With healthy senior and junior classes returning for the 2017 boys’ soccer season, Shelby County hopes it can translate that wealth of experience into titles at the district and region levels this season.

    “I really think our group has the experience to do what Shelby County soccer hasn’t seen in a long time,” coach Michael Hornback said. “I think we can be a very dangerous team.”

  • Titans boast senior-led roster this season

  • Shelby looks for young players to step up

    Following the graduation of three senior leaders last year, Shelby County girls’ soccer will boast a young squad this season.

    Head coach Joe Turner says he can see most of his younger players earning heavy minutes for the Rockets in 2017.

    “We lost three pretty good seniors, who are playing in college now,” Turner said. “As far as replacing them, we are going to be a very young team this year.”

    With another year in the books, and still a relatively young team coming back for this season, the Titan boys’ cross country team will look to take another step toward the ultimate goal of a state title this season.

  • Rockets look to keep building on success

    This season, Shelby County girls’ cross country is looking to build on its success from last year’s run to the state level.

    With one senior in Hanako Boucher, and three juniors on the roster, the Rockets are looking to continue gaining experience and cutting down on run times under new coach Aaron Shepherd.

    “They’re definitely getting it,” Shepherd said of the young group of athletes. “They’re starting to realize what they need to be doing every day at practice, and doing it well.”

  • Collins XC ready to run

    With the departure of multiple-time state champion Gabriella Karas to graduation, Collins girls’ cross country will look to move into a new era with new runners and a new coach at the helm.

  • Rockets team led by new talent this season

    After last season’s wildly successful run to the AA State Cross Country meet, the Shelby County boys’ team is being reshaped for the 2017 season.

  • Collins looks to continue winning ways

    After capturing the 30th District Title and advancing to the second round of the 8th Region Tournament last season, Collins volleyball will look to keep up that momentum this year with most of its team returning.

    “We’ve got a very experienced team coming back, and our kids have been playing together for a long time,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “We expect everyone to contribute this year, and this is easily the strongest hitting lineup I’ve ever had at Collins.”

  • SCHS volleyball looks to add more wins

    After a disappointing end to the season in 2016, Shelby County volleyball is looking to regroup and make a postseason run this year.

    The Rockets will look to do so with five seniors on the roster, and a new mindset heading into this season.

    “Last year, we left off obviously disappointed,” coach Kristen Kapp said. “We have really good girls, and they didn’t get as far as they wanted. We’ve been working on our mental game; and we realize that things are going to happen that we have to put past us.”

    “After receiving the certified assessment information, I’m happy to say that the amounts included in the tentative budget were within two percent of what we are now calculating based on the certified assessments,” she said, noting that gave the district an increase of about $478,000 of what was included in the tentative budget.
