  • Collins tops Anderson County

    Collins’ streak of being undefeated in district matchups since 2014 rolled on Wednesday night, as the Titans easily closed out Anderson County in a match that lasted just 57 minutes.

    The Titans (12-5) did anything and everything it wanted to do in the win over the Bearcats (5-7) and helped Collins solidify its first-place ranking in the 30th District.

  • Rockets travel to Franklin County tonight

    The Franklin County Flyers have traded wins through their first four games, but the Shelby County football team will look to buck that trend in the district opener for both teams Friday at Franklin County.

    The Flyers fell 46-13 to visiting Anderson County last week, and Shelby County’s focus will be on giving Franklin (2-2) its first two-game losing streak this season.

  • Titans open district play at Spencer County

    Collins football team will open its district play tonight, when the Titans travel to Taylorsville to take on Spencer County (2-3).

    The Bears have had some tough sledding thus far, with three consecutive losses after defeating Bardstown in week one.

    Spencer earned its second win of the season last Friday in a 49-7 blowout win over an 0-5 Woodford County team on the road.

  • Titans take second at Grant County tourney

    Collins girls’ golf continued its march toward the region tournament on Sept. 29 with a second-place finish at the Grant County Invitational over the weekend.

    Led by junior Catie Kelly’s career-low 18-hole score of 82 – good for fourth individually at the tournament – Collins came away with a strong showing at the weekend tournament, shooting a 371 as a team.

  • 30 Years in the Marines: The Rest of the Story (1942-1967), Part 11: Home from the war in the Pacific

    On April 1, 1945, while flying home, having competed a combat tour in the Pacific of nearly 26 months, I heard on the plane’s radio news of the assault on Okinawa that day.

    This was the beginning of another struggle with a skilled and determined enemy, who augmented his defenses this time with kamikaze pilots who deliberately crashed their bomb-laden planes on naval ships.

    On land and sea a terrible toll was exacted, foretelling a bloody struggle for the home islands of Japan, planned for later that year.

  • Rockets rally for comeback win

    While Friday’s game was not Super Bowl LI, Shelby County’s comeback win over Bullitt East was certainly Patriot-like.

    Trailing by a 21-6 margin coming out of halftime, the Rockets (4-1) scored 16 unanswered points following the break, defeating a visiting Chargers (1-3) team and picking up its fourth win of the year in the process.

    SCHS’ comeback was complete when, with 6:12 left in regulation, sophomore kicker Christian Gayhart nailed a 44-yard field goal attempt with plenty of room to spare.

  • Collins falls to visiting Boyle County

    Although it jumped out to an early lead, Collins proved to be no match for 3A perennial power Boyle County on Friday night, as the Rebels rolled to a 45-17 win.

    Boyle (4-1) limited Collins (3-2) to 264 yards of total offense, along with a season-low 17 points and handed the Titans its second loss of the season.

  • Titans rout Shelby County

    Everything went Collins’ way in Monday’s matchup between the Titans and crosstown rival Shelby County.

    The Titans used three goals from junior forward Braelyn Gantt and two scores each from Lindsay Creque and Isabella Trevino to hand Shelby (1-9) the 10-0 loss and earn Collins (6-2-1) its first district win of the season.
