  • Titans take 1st in home meet

    The Collins High School swim team turned in a very strong performance in both boys and girls competitions at Wednesday’s meet held at the Family Activity Center.

    The Titans boys’ team took first place over teams from surrounding counties with a final tally of 262 points, 51 points ahead of visiting Oldham County.

    Collins earned the majority of its points from first and second place finishes during competition.

  • Shelby dominates Fairdale for...

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team picked up its first victory of the season in a dominating fashion over Fairdale, 67-35.

    Despite picking up the win by an impressive 32-point margin, head coach Jason Holland saw improvements that need to be made in the Rockets’ (1-0) play.

    SCHS committed 19 turnovers in the win, but Holland chalks some of the mistakes up to an alignment error and some eagerness during the first game of the year.

  • Holmes drops Collins in opener

    The Collins High School girls’ basketball team got off to a rough start in its 2016 campaign with a 69-42 loss to very talented Holmes on Tuesday night.

    The Titans (0-1) suffered numerous turnovers and a cold shooting night en route to its first defeat of the year. Collins committed 29 giveaways in the loss, compared to just nine turnovers by the Bulldogs (1-0).

  • Shelby drops opener to Mercer

    The Shelby County High School boys’ basketball team could not overcome a rough first quarter in which the Rockets scored just nine points en route to a 78-59 loss to Mercer County at home on Monday.

    SCHS (0-1) outscored the Titans (1-0) in both the second and third quarters, but the 26-9 deficit after the first was just too much to overcome.

  • Collins set to take on familiar...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team will take the floor for the first time this season on Friday when Bullitt East visits the school, but the Titans are likely to be familiar with the Chargers.

    The Chargers’ new head coach, Jason Couch, was coach of Shelby County High School for four seasons from 2012-15, so both squads should have a good idea of what to expect in the opener.

  • Cats, Cards live up to hype

    The matchup between the universities of Kentucky and Louisville was one of the most exciting and unexpected games I have witnessed all season at any level of football, and I had absolutely no dog in the fight.

    Over the weekend, myself and roughly 50 strangers sat huddled in the lobby of a Chicago hotel, keeping an eye on the multiple television screens showing Saturday’s Michigan-Ohio State game.

  • Shelby, Collins players tabbed...

    What have been solid seasons for both Shelby County and Collins high schools in football has culminated in the two schools sending a combined four players to the Best of the Bluegrass All-Star football game.

    For Shelby County, center Hayden Tedford, running back Brandon Davis, and kicker Josh Edwards were named to the Louisville-area team on Nov. 14.

    Tedford came into the season as the only returning starter on the offensive line from a year ago, and helped the Rockets pave the way offensively this season.

  • Petty named to all-area team

    Following a season in which she put together one solid performance after another, Collins High School cross country runner Madeline Petty has been named to the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Area 4 team.

    “I’m really proud of myself for getting back to that level from last year,” Petty said. “[Cross-country] is a big part of my life, so I’ve put in a lot of work for it.”

  • Ready to tip in the Bluegrass

    Now that the fall sports season has concluded, the colder months are here – and by extension, so are both Collins and Shelby County’s basketball seasons.

    During my time in college, I was one of two beat writers for the men’s basketball team, but the sports culture here in the state of Kentucky is a whole different animal than it was in the Peach State.

  • John Hardin runs by Rockets, 52-...

    As good as the Shelby County High School football team was in the first half, John Hardin was even better in the latter half as the Bulldogs defeated the Rockets, 52-31.

    John Hardin rolled up 583 yards of total offense, including 395 rushing yards, to end Shelby’s season.

    The first quarter was a tightly contested battle that saw both teams punch and counterpunch one another in turns.
