    Thanks to a solid shooting night from behind the arc and massive scoring performances from guards Kayla Bruner and Raydriana Stoudemire, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team had enough offensive firepower to pick up the win over a solid Jeffersontown (8-4) team on Saturday, 57-52.

  • Collins drops fourth straight at Spencer

    Limited minutes from sophomore point guard Olivia Federle and too many self-inflicted mistakes were just too much to overcome for Collins girls’ basketball in a 53-39 loss at district opponent Spencer County on Friday.

    “It was a very competitive game,” Titans coach Sean Pigman said. “They [Spencer] are a good team and it is a tough place to play, but it was great environment and should help us get better as move forward.”

  • Shelbyville man killed in fatal accident

    One person was killed in a fatal accident on Finchville Road early Monday morning.

    Shelby County Coroner Jeff Ivers said that the single vehicle accident occurred when Bryan Nilson lost control of his vehicle on the 2600 Block due to icy road conditions.

    "The vehicle slid on the ice and overturned," he said.

    Nilson, 64, was alone in the vehicle as he was traveling to work in Simpsonville, said Ivers.

  • Mercy pounds Titans in Wednesday matchup

    The ability to break down Mercy’s full-court defense eluded Collins girls’ basketball on Wednesday night, as the Titans turned the ball over a whopping 30 times in a 81-51 home loss to the Jaguars.

    “[Mercy] is an awesome basketball team,” Titans coach Sean Pigman said after the game. “Their [Mercy’s] record doesn’t reflect how good of a team they are. We reached out and scheduled them because we want to play good teams, and that’s how you get better.”

  • Trinity wallops Collins, 72-49

    Collins boys’ basketball faced another tough test on Tuesday night in the form of Trinity, and took a lopsided 72-49 loss at the hands of the Shamrocks.

    Trinity (12-1) had dropped just one game in 13 contests this season, and was the best teams in the state of Kentucky coming into this game.

    “Trinity has a great team and is the top ranked team in the state,” Titans coach Chris Gaither said. “We have teams like them on our schedule because our goal is to win championships.”
