    The Titans fought tooth-and-nail to try and overcome Doss on Saturday night, but the Dragons found a way to overcome its opponent in the overtime period.

  • Rockets defeat Henry County

    After a tight halftime score saw Henry County leading Shelby County boys’ basketball by one-point, the Rockets took control of the second half on the way to a 71-65 win over the visiting Wildcats on Friday night.

    A smaller lineup, boasting four and even five guards at a time, gave Henry trouble, as the visiting team struggled to keep up with the speed and elusiveness of the Rockets.

  • Owen tops Collins

    A rough second quarter for Collins girls’ basketball came back to haunt the Titans in its Saturday trip to Owen County, as the host team came away with the 53-47 win.

    Collins (11-15) could only muster five points in the second, being outscored by six points in that frame alone, 11-5.

    Combine that an injury to its main interior presence in Mary-Clare Megibben after halftime, and the two factors ended up contributing to the six-point loss to the Rebels (16-8).

    Art teacher Michelle Thomas said a total of about 450 students participated, each grade level creating a different heart themed project for the “For the Love of Art” show.

  • Feeding the children

    It’s that time of year again when the public gets the chance to show their support for local school children, to see that students in need get enough to eat.

    The Shelby County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee announced that Feb. 18-24 is Food Check Out Week and that Shelby County Farm Bureau will be collecting donations for the Shelby County Backpack Project. 

  • Colonels edge Titans, 55-51

    Too many errant passes along with a slack interior defense equaled a Collins girls’ basketball loss on Tuesday night against visiting Oldham County, extending Collins’ losing streak to three games.

    The Titans failed to convert on several opportunities late, after center Mary-Clare Megibben hit a putback shot right under the basket to cut the Colonels lead to 55-51 with 37.5 seconds remaining.
