  • Shelby, Collins set for playoff rematch

    The football teams of Collins and Shelby County high schools will go to battle for the second time this season tonight, this time with the postseason on the line.

    The previous meeting saw the Rockets (10-1) defeat the Titans (7-4) by a score of 39-6.

    During the Oct. 21 contest between the rival schools, Collins found very little success in the passing game, but NaSean Roseberry rushed for 147 yards on 14 carries and saw many openings on the ground.

  • Titans look to grow on court

    Last season was a growing experience for the Collins High School boys’ basketball team, going 15-18, but also accomplishing many goals the team set for itself.

    The team came on strong at the end of the 2015-16 season, defeating rival Shelby County in the 30th District Tournament, and advancing to the second round of the 8th Region tournament before falling to South Oldham by four points.

    Titans head coach Chris Gaither was inspired by the improvement he saw from his team, especially in the latter half of the year.

  • Rockets have big shoes to fill

    Despite a 22-6 season, the Shelby County High School girls’ basketball team did not finish its 2015-16 season the way it had expected.

    The team suffered through a multitude of injuries, and dropped its last two games as a result. Rival Collins ended Shelby’s 2015 season in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament.

    “We had a good regular season,” head coach Jason Holland said. “The season definitely did not end the way we wanted. We had injuries plague us all year.”

  • Rockets return veteran group

    Coming off of a 16-14 season last year, the Shelby County boys’ basketball team is looking to start anew this season with first-year head coach Ken Cates.

    The team had its 2015-16 season ended by rival Collins in the first round of the 30th District Tournament.

    “We had a good season, but we came up short of our goals for the postseason,” Cates said.

  • Collins looks to continue growing

    The Collins High School girls’ basketball team is looking to build off of an 18-13 record from 2015-16 and take the next step as a team.

    The Titans closed last season strong, winning four of the final six regular season games and advanced to the 8th Region Tournament before falling to eventual Region runner-up Simon Kenton.

    Last season was head coach Sean Pigman’s first season at the helm for the Titans, and Pigman hopes that continuity with the coaching staff will help this newer, younger Collins team grow at a quick pace.

  • Jeptha Creed opens today

    Jeptha Creed, Shelbyville’s long awaited, family-owned distillery is opening its doors to the public today.

    “We’ve got a lot of people in the community that have RSVPd,” said Joyce Nethery, who owns the distillery with her husband Bruce.  “We have people from the Kentucky Distillers’ Association, people from the Distilled Spirits Epicenter coming, State Representative-elect Rob Rothenburger, Mayor Tom Hardesty, members of the city council, magistrates, I think we are going to have a really good representation.”

  • Journey to health

    Many people look forward to Thanksgiving not only as an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, but also as a time to kick off the holiday season with huge comfort food-filled meals and decadent desserts.

    And that’s exactly why Kyle Migdol picked this time of year to make a huge lifestyle change.

    The holiday now has a different meaning for the Shelbyville native. It was three days before Thanksgiving three years ago when he renounced the traditional gut-busting meal and embraced a stringent weight loss regimen.

  • Flocking to the polls

    Shelby County election officials had expected a large voter turnout, but County Clerk Sue Carole Perry said her estimate of nearly 70 percent might have been on the conservative side.

    “It might be more than what I thought it was going to be,” she said shortly before the polls closed.

    Election officials agreed that traffic at the polls was heavy in most parts of the county.

    Lorie Haggard, an election worker at Precinct G103 at the Shelby County Fairgrounds said she couldn’t believe the turnout.

  • Paverd’s 2nd paces Rockets to 3rd

    Shelby County High School’s Matthew Paverd is now one of the two best runners in the state with his second-place finish in Saturday’s Class 2A cross-country state championship meet.

    Paverd says that his goal was to edge out Warren East’s Jacob England, but the Shelby runner finished just two seconds behind the first-place athlete from Bowling Green with Paverd clocking in at 16:07.39.

  • Harris breaks school record in blowout win over Western

    Sophomore Cameron Harris reeled in four catches in Collins High School’s 43-6 drubbing of Western on Friday in the first round of the KHSAA Class 4A playoffs.

    Why is this significant?

    Because Harris plays defense for the Titans.

    The defensive back only needed one half of play to break Collins’ (7-4) school-record for interceptions in a game, and helped keep the ball away from the Warriors (4-7) offense for long stretches of the game.
