  • Three big innings lead Shelby...

    Up 3-1 over Grayson County after three innings of play, Shelby County baseball was searching for a way to put the game out of reach.

    Michael Stivers and Caleb Collins were waiting on base when senior Brandon Davis stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the fourth.

    On the third pitch of the at-bat, Davis got a hold of the Grayson pitcher Hunter Schiarella’s fastball, roping it over the left centerfield wall and notching a five-run deficit over the visiting Cougars (2-7) and opening the offensive floodgates for the Rockets (3-6-1).

  • Collins splits weekend slate

    Collins High School split a home doubleheader Saturday, dropping a tight game in the first contest, 8-7, to Henry Clay but rebounding with a powerful 12-8 win over St. Henry in the afternoon.

    Two big innings were the key for the Titans (6-5) against St. Henry, as Collins scored 12 combined runs in the third and fourth frames to help lock up the win. Trevor Pitts, Mason Kuhl and Drew Goodlett combined for nine RBIs and six of the team’s 11 hits in the win.

  • Shelby earns a pair of wins at...

    The Shelby County softball team earned its first pair of tournament wins on the season at the Dixie Heights tournament on Saturday.

    The Rockets closed the day with a 10-4 shootout over Fairfield, Ohio to help secure its second and final victory of the weekend.

    “After Friday’s loss, it was good to rebound in a big way and get two good wins,” Rockets coach Kelly Cable said.

  • Shelby looks strong at home all-...

    Shelby County’s track and field team turned in solid performances Tuesday while hosting an All-Comers meet, taking first place in the boys’ and second in girls’ competitions.

    The Rockets ended up with 148 points on the boys’ side, 47 ahead of second-place Pleasure Ridge Park.

    In the girls’ standings, SCHS took the runner up spot with 106 points, 65 behind Male.

  • Late rally by Marion County...

    Headed into the seventh inning on Tuesday night, Collins baseball was doing solid work on the mound to help limit Marion County to just a 6-2 deficit.

    Starting pitcher Austin Ruble had turned in a very efficient four-and-two-thirds innings for the Titans, allowing just six hits and three earned runs while striking out five batters.

    But Marion County (4-1) plated four runners in the top of the seventh, capitalizing on two Titan (3-3) errors and jumping out to a 10-2 lead with just a half inning left to play.

  • Titans defeat Spencer in home...

    Collins’ tennis teams earned a pair of wins over a visiting Spencer County squad on Tuesday afternoon.

    The girls’ team gutted out a close 3-2 win, while the boys earned a clean sweep 5-0 over the Bears.

    In the boys’ first singles competition, Jared Baltzell shutout his opponent, 6-0, 6-0 while second singles Jason Anderson followed suit with the same result.

    Third singles player Jacob Hisle helped in a two-set, 6-0, 6-0 win over Spencer to push Collins to 3-0 in boys’ singles competition.

  • Collins falls in state...

    In night two of Collins’ appearance in the KHSAA Sweet 16 Basketball Tournament, little went its way.

    The Titans fell behind just 49 seconds into the first quarter, and could never quite find footing on either side of the ball.

    On the other end, Cooper High School could seemingly do no wrong – finishing in the paint at will and preventing the bigger Collins front court from getting second-chance opportunities on the boards.

  • Shelby scores rare tie at Holy...

    Shelby County’s visit to Holy Cross in Louisville ended in an unconventional way on Monday night, with a 6-6 tie after five innings.

    The game was called following a fifth inning in which the Cougars knotted the game at six runs apiece before being declared a draw due to lack of stadium lights and the sun going down.

  • Collins tops E-Town

    Following losses against Ballard and Trinity last week, Collins baseball looked to get back on track against Elizabethtown on Saturday morning, and did just that, defeating the Panthers 6-1.

    Titan pitcher Tanner Brown was a key piece in holding E-Town (2-2) to just one run, with an excellent complete game performance.

    Brown went a full seven innings for Collins (3-2), allowing just two hits and no earned runs while striking out six.

  • Griffitts earns second KPGA award

    Clear Creek PGA Professional Derrick Griffitts knows a thing or two about winning awards, and now has another to add to his mantle.

    At last week’s Annual Section Meeting and Awards Luncheon at Griffin Gate Resort in Lexington, Griffitts received the KPGA Player Development Award from Kentucky PGA President Ralph Landrum.
