  • Shelby girls 2nd at golf regional

    Thanks to the efforts of senior Lilly Young, the Shelby County girls’ golf team is heading to Bowling Green once again for the KHSAA State Championship Tournament.

    Young led the Rockets with a 1-over par 73 and finished second individually despite difficult rainy conditions Monday at Midland Trail Golf Course in Louisville.

    Shelby County finished second overall as a team, shooting a 331, 26 strokes behind the winning team in Sacred Heart.

  • Creque earns first start at UofL

    Although the University of Louisville football team is one of the top squads in America, led by quarterback Lamar Jackson, the team is still looking to upgrade in its kicking game.

    Enter former Collins High School placekicker Blanton Creque, who earned his first start Saturday.

    Last season, the all-state talent walked on with UofL and spent the 2015 season redshirted. Creque says that he spent the year off improving his skills and learning from his new coaches.

  • Late interception lifts Spencer...

    While the Collins High School (3-2, 0-1 in the district) football team put up a solid effort against district foe Spencer County (5-1, 1-0 in the district), turnovers ended up being the deciding factor.

    With 3:55 remaining in the final quarter and Collins down 35-28 to the visiting Bears, quarterback J.R. Lucas was picked off by Spencer’s Hunter Brown, who took the interception 57 yards for a touchdown.

  • Rockets run through Franklin...

    There’s no place like home.

    No team understands that mantra better than the Shelby County High School (4-2) football team, which is now 3-0 this season at Robert Doyle Stadium after dominating Franklin County (2-4) 52-18 on Friday.

    “It’s a good feeling [to win at home],” SCHS running back Brandon Davis said. “We just do it for the fans and the people that support us.”

  • Rockets could pick up a win

    Bullitt East has to be kicking itself.

    After defeating Shelby County 56-31 last Friday night for its first win of the season, the Chargers may have to forfeit the game.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association charged yesterday that Bullitt East kicker Christian Foster had not participated in enough practices to be eligible to play in her first game.

    The violation was self-reported according to Bullitt East athletic director Troy Barr.

  • Titans reel off 2 straight

    The Collins volleyball team has taken its last two opponents to the woodshed in a pair of straight set victories.

    The most recent came on Wednesday night, when the Titans traveled to Frankfort to take on Western Hills.

    Collins handled the Wolverines with ease, picking up wins of 25-12, 25-10, and 25-17 on its way to sweeping WHHS. Once again the team served at an incredibly high 93 percent rate in the win.

  • Collins faces tough test in...

    Having suffered its first loss of the season last Friday at the hands of Boyle County, Collins will look to get back to winning football this week when it welcomes Spencer County for its district opener.

    The Bears had a rocky start to the 2016 season, falling to Bardstown 29-13 in the season opener.

    But Spencer has rebounded since, winning its next four games over Nelson County, East Jessamine, Bullitt East, and Bullitt Central.

    Spencer County’s strength lies with its running backs, Brandon Leff and Kadin Smith.

  • Banged-up Shelby hosts Franklin

    After losing more than a handful of starters in a loss to Bullitt East last week, the Shelby County Rockets football team could still be missing several players tonight when Franklin County visits the Rockets at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    SCHS coach Todd Shipley said on Monday that chances are good the Rockets (3-2) will be without starters Caleb Morehead and Keshawn Catlett, who both left last Friday’s contest with head injuries.

  • Flyers soar past Collins

    Without leading goal scorer Braelyn Gantt in the lineup, the Collins girls’ soccer team struggled Wednesday night, getting shutout 9-0 at home by Franklin County.

    “Franklin played a great game,” Collins coach Steve Nash said. “We missed on a couple of early opportunities that could have changed the game, which would have allowed us a chance to jump ahead.”

    Collins could not muster much offensive success from the get-go, as the Flyers jumped out to a 5-0 lead before the end of the first half.

  • Collins, Shelby post strong...

    Both Collins and Shelby County girls’ golf teams posted stellar outings on the links in weekend tournaments.
    Saturday was a history-making day for Collins High School.

    For the first time in school history, the Titans fielded two teams for the George Rogers Clark Invitational tournament on Saturday, with ‘Team A’ taking first-place thanks to golfers Rylee Suttor, Mallori Webb, Catie Kelly, and Mattie Robinson.
