  • Rockets beat Spencer in 3...

    All the experiences Michael Ewing has gone through the past three seasons paid off big Tuesday for the Shelby County Rockets in a triple overtime 46-43 win over Spencer County Tuesday.

    Ewing, a 5-foot-7 senior guard, was the key to the Rockets’ win with his scoring, defense, ball handling and most importantly, steady presence on the floor after seniors Malik Manica and John Darrell Hatter had fouled out.

  • Collins falls to Frankfort

    On a night when shooting went cold, the Collins Titans were unable to get over the hump against Frankfort falling 52-45 to the host Panthers Tuesday.

    The Titans were ice cold from the field and the foul line in the first half as Frankfort built a modest 21-15 lead.

    “We were six-out-of-eighteen from the foul line in the first half,” Collins coach Chris Gaither said. “In the second quarter we went one-of-fourteen from the field. We didn’t make shots or create any easy shots off our defense.”

  • Fort forging career in swimming

    Every time Ali Fort gets in the water she could be making history in more ways than one.

    Fort, a Collins High School senior, is in contention to become the first Titans’ swimmer to bring home state honors and possibly a state title as a competitor in the 100 backstroke and 100 breaststroke. She had Collins’ highest finish last year when she took seventh in the state in the backstroke and is ranked in the top five again this year.

  • Shelby's Zoey Holland...

    Shelby County freshman Zoey Holland has a lot of things going for her as a basketball player but the most important may be a wisdom beyond her years in dealing with the Rockets’ sometime volatile coach – her father Jason.

    “It’s interesting sometimes,” she said. “I have just learned to say yes sir and go on. I don’t argue, I’m not going to win and he knows what he’s doing.”

  • Collins beats Harrison County

    The big stage may have just given the Titans the boost they needed as Collins snapped a three-game losing streak with a 45-42 win over Harrison County Saturday at Bankers Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

    The Titans controlled most of the game but Harrison County managed a couple of late 3-pointers to close the final margin.

  • Collins girls win two close ones

    Taking the old adage ‘If there’s a will, there’s  way,’ to heart, the Collins High School girls’ basketball team picked up a pair of two-point wins over the weekend.

    “The kids are getting this find-a-way-to-win attitude about them,” Collins coach Sean Pigman said. “I think in both games, in 64 minutes of basketball, we actually had the lead about a grand total of 40 seconds.”

  • Oldham nips Collins on last...

    In the last second of a basketball game a rugby scrum broke out and Collins High School came out on the short end.

    Oldham County’s Jacob Bates came out of a mad scramble for a loose ball and shoveled an underhanded pass to Brandon Johnson right under the basket for a layup with 0.02 seconds left to give the Colonels a 46-44 win over the Titans Thursday.

    The shot ended an action packed final four seconds in the game that was tight throughout and a re-match of last year’s regional finals won by Collins.

  • Rockets blow by Mustangs with...

    Shelby County is hitting its stride at the right time while North Oldham is still searching for energy and effort.

    The Rockets got off to a hot start and held off a second half rally from the Mustangs in a 69-57 victory on the road Thursday night.

    “We really played an almost flawless first half,” Shelby County coach Jason Couch said. “We had only one turnover in the first half and hit some shots. We also did a very good job of changing our defenses and got them out of rhythm.”

  • Lady Rockets hammer Spencer

    The Shelby County High School girl’s basketball team beat their opponent, beat the storm and kept their No. 1 seed in the district tournament hopes alive with a 56-39 drubbing of Spencer County Thursday.

    “We just wanted to get the game in and not get it pushed back,” Shelby County coach Jason Holland said. “It really had no implication on the seeding once we won. It does keep our chances alive of being the top seed if Collins can upset Anderson County Friday.”

  • Lady Rockets roll by Moore

    After the snow kept them out of the gym for three days the Shelby County High School girls’ basketball team shook a little rust off Monday with a 66-22 win over Louisville Moore.

    With the frontline combining for 43 points, the Rockets (17-3) took control of the game early and then used their defense to limit the Mustangs to just 8 second half points en route to getting a running clock in the final quarter.
