  • Grayson brings option attack to...

    Shelby County High ‘s football team just had to take a quick look in the mirror this week to prepare to host Grayson County at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

    The Cougars are a near carbon copy of the Rockets in size and in the triple-option offense they ring to town.

    “They really do mirror what we do on offense,” Shelby County coach Todd Shipley said. “It looks like they have very good backs who run the ball hard.”

  • Titans headed to Bullitt East

    It will be an about face for the Collins High School football team’s defense this week as the Titans head to Bullitt East for a 7:30 p.m. game Friday.

    While Collins shut out and shut down the potent Montgomery County passing attack in their opening game 7-0 win, they will face a Bullitt East offense that relies on its traditional, ground-and-pound running game.

  • Iceman wins assistant pro title

    The weather was cool but Daniel Iceman was hot.

    Iceman, the assistant pro at Weissinger Hills Golf Course, won the National Car Rental Kentucky State Assistant Championship at Keene Trace Golf Club.

    Iceman fired a 70-69-139 over the two-day tournament to defeat Justice Grover of High Performance Golf Academy in Lexington who shot a 142 and Logan Watts of the Louisville Country Club at 143.

    “I played pretty well,” Iceman said. “I hit the ball extremely well, and my putter was on fire. I hit a lot of putts both days.”

  • Shelby rallies to beat Garrard...

    Entering the game with a lot of question marks, the Shelby County High School football team came out with a lot of answers Friday.

    Listed as a two-touchdown underdog by some, the Rockets went down to the wire at Garrard County in the Hall of Fame Bowl and came out with a tough, hard fought 31-30 road win to open the season.

    “It went right down to the wire for sure,” Shelby County senior Michael Perry said. “It was a good game for us. A lot of our younger guys played really well tonight.”

  • Big play keys Titans past...

    On a night when it seemed nothing would fall their way the Collins High School football team got the one play they needed at the right time to edge host Montgomery County 7-0 in the Recreation Bowl Saturday.

    After the Titans saw several chances to score go awry in their season opener, sophomore quarterback J.R. Lucas found receiver Dalton Maggard streaking past the Montgomery County defense all alone with a perfectly thrown pass that Maggard hauled in never breaking stride for a 68-yard touchdown pass.

  • Collins will take on Montgomery...

    Two teams looking to get back to their normal winning ways in football will square off in the 68th Recreation Bowl in Mt. Sterling at 8 p.m. Saturday.

    Collins High School, 4-7 last year and Montgomery County, 2-8, will play in the second game of the state’s oldest bowl game immediately after Class 1A powers Paris and Frankfort play in a 6 p.m. kickoff.

    Like Collins, Montgomery County is looking to bounce back in a big way this season.

  • Shelby to face off with Garrard

    In what they hope will be the start of a banner season in 4A, the Shelby County High School football season is jumping right into the fray facing off with one of the states’ top 3A programs at Garrard County in the Hall of Fame Bowl at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

    “They are a good football team,” Shelby County coach Todd Shipley said. “They were good last year and have a lot of guys back.”

  • Collins edges Shelby in...

    The Collins High School volleyball was able to withstand the emotional impact of playing arch rival Shelby County a little better Thursday as the Titans took a 3-1 win over the Rockets.

    It was Collins’ second match of the year after falling to No. 25 Male the night before and the opener for Shelby County.

  • Collins volleyball falls to Male

    Opponents may want to take a closer look at the Collins volleyball team this year after the Titans pushed No. 25 Male to the limit Wednesday, falling to the Bulldogs in three tough games.

    “We are not going to back down from anybody,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “We knew Male would be a very tough game, but the girls really stepped up and went at them. We let some opportunities get away from us, but that’s to be expected with a young team.”

  • Swim schedule sinks coach

    After a summer of heated negotiations proved futile, the Shelbyville/Shelby County Parks and Rec. system settled on a swim practice schedule that has left some up in arms and two high school swim teams without a coach.

    J.P. LaVertu has reluctantly resigned from the position as swim coach for both Shelby County and Collins high schools.

    “Due to some scheduling conflicts with his work schedule it basically made it impossible for him to do morning practices,” said Collins Athletics Director Randy Fawns.
