  • Oldham County eliminates Shelby County from region

    A tough loss to perennial 8th Region runner-up Oldham County ended Shelby County’s volleyball campaign on Wednesday night, as the Rockets fell in four sets to the Colonels.

    “It was the best way to go out,” SCHS coach Kristen Kapp said. “If we weren’t going to win, that would be the way to go out.”

    OC (23-12) jumped out to an early lead in the first set and rode that deficit to a 25-17 opening frame victory.

  • Collins falls to North Oldham in region semis

    Collins volleyball fought hard against opponent North Oldham on Wednesday night, but it was not enough to overcome the Mustangs, as the Titans season ended in a four-set loss to North.

    Following a slow first set that saw the Mustangs (26-7) close out Collins 25-12; the Titans kicked it into gear in the final three sets of play.

    “I was a little disappointed in the way we started,” Titans coach Cary Clark said. “We hesitated out of the gate. The second set we kind of found our legs and started playing harder.”

  • Shelby County travels to face South Oldham

    Shelby County will end its season tonight with a tough test, as the Rockets travel to face off against 5A power South Oldham.

    The Dragons (8-1) have been a force on both offense and defense this season, with its lone loss coming in week one to Christian Academy-Louisville, 28-14.

    Since that game, South has been on a complete tear, outscoring its last eight opponents 359-46.

  • Collins hosts Pulaski County tonight

    Collins’ defensive backfield should see a good amount of work tonight, when the Titans take on a pass-heavy Pulaski County team at home.

    The Maroons (4-5) are led by junior QB Wiley Cain, who has thrown for more than 2,500 yards – 285 per game.

    Luckily for the Titans, Cain is prone to making mistakes with his throws.

    The junior has tossed 20 touchdowns to 13 interceptions so far this season, and the Pulaski quarterback has also been hampered by the lack of a consistent rushing attack.

  • Updated: Louisville woman killed in officer shooting was armed

    An officer with the Shelbyville Police Department has been placed on administrative leave after an officer involved shooting fatality Monday night, in which a woman died from a gunshot wound, according to Kentucky State Police.

    Shelby County Chief Deputy Coroner Jeff Ivers said that Ashleigh Bertucci, 31, of Louisville, was pronounced dead after a shooting that occurred outside a home in the Dominion Homes Cloverbrook subdivision off Mount Eden Road near the I-64 interchange.
