  • KCD rallies to top Collins

    Early on in the first set, it seemed as if Collins volleyball had complete control in its Wednesday match against Kentucky Country Day.

    But the Bearcats had other plans, rallying from 21-16 down to take the first set 26-24 and eventually the match by a 2-1 margin.

  • Shelby County visits North Bullitt

    Tonight Shelby County football will visit high-scoring North Bullitt, which has averaged 30 points per game this season. Unfortunately for North Bullitt, the Eagles (1-2) have not been able to shut down opposing offenses for the most part either.

    In its three contests against Scott County, Southern, and Jeffersontown, the Eagles have allowed an average of 39 points per game to its opponents, and welcomes in a Rockets’ (2-1) team that has feasted on lax defensive units over the past few years.

  • Collins travels to face Oldham County

    Despite being less than 30 miles from its opponent, the Collins football team will take on a relatively unknown Oldham County squad tonight.

    Under second year head coach Michael Fox, the Colonels (1-1) boast a spread offense led by senior quarterback Erix Edwards.

    In the first two weeks of this season, Oldham took a tough loss to Henry County before defeating rival North Oldham in its most recent contest on Aug. 25. The Colonels were off last week.

  • Panthers score late to earn win over Titans

    The Collins boys’ soccer team came within minutes of handing Frankfort it’s first loss of the season, but the Titans just couldn’t find the back of the net despite several opportunities.

    “It’s one that we shouldn’t have lost,” Titans coach Jamil Shalash said. “[Panthers forward Devin Craig] was someone coming in and we knew that they’d go to him. He made a beautiful run to score at the end there, but we had some opportunities we didn’t capitalize on.”

  • VAN STOCKUM: 30 Years in the Marines: The Rest of the Story (1942-1967), Part 10: Heroes and heroism

    At this point in my current series, having completed writing about combat experiences during WW II, it seems timely to write about “Heroes and Heroism.”

    I have thought a great deal about real heroes and their acts of heroism. Certainly my front-line machine gunners on Guam who held their ground and died, while others fell back and survived, were heroes, unrecognized and unsung

    MOPS meeting

  • Meade defeats Shelby in rainy conditions

    Amid extremely wet conditions on Friday night, Meade County found a way to slip through the Shelby County defense.

    The Green Wave’s (2-1) rushing attack proved to be too much for Shelby, as Meade rolled up 627 yards rushing in a 58-13 defeat of the Rockets (2-1).

    Meade did it all without throwing a single pass, as three rushers each went over the century mark in the win.

    The Green Wave’s Zach Babb benefitted most from the heavy workload, gaining 311 yards and scoring on touchdown runs of 78, 76, 44, and 28 yards.

  • Ballard holds off Collins in Thursday match-up

    On a special Thursday night edition of high school football, Ballard did just enough to outlast Collins and pick up a 34-28 win.

    The Bruins (1-2) connection of senior quarterback Terrance May and junior wide receiver Elijah Downing gave Collins (2-1) trouble for much of the night.

    May connected on 20 of his 36 attempts, racking up 353 yards through the air and four touchdowns along with an interception.

    Downing was a large part of the yardage total; hauling in 10 passes for 213 yards and a score.

  • Rockets play host at Shelby County Invitational

    Both Shelby and Collins’ cross country teams kicked off their seasons among some soggy conditions in the Shelby County Invitational meet Saturday.

    The two teams each turned in solid outings as the Titans and Rockets’ teams earned strong finishes in one of the regions’ toughest meets.

    On the boys’ side, Collins earned a fifth-place finish as a team with an average team time of 18:54, finishing four spots behind first-place Eastern High School.
