  • Shelby girls earn 2nd win of...

    Led by Zephy Gray, Asia Hardy, and Zoey Holland, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team earned its second win of the season in a 59-50 victory over Williamstown (1-2) on Saturday.

    Adjustments out of the half paved the way for the Rockets, according to head coach Jason Holland.

    “We really played well in the third quarter,” the coach said. “We got what we wanted on offense, and executed well on defense.”

  • Titans split back-to back over...

    The Collins High School boys’ basketball team split a pair of games over the weekend, to open the season 1-1.

    The Titans win came on the road at Gallatin County on Saturday, as Collins defeated the Wildcats (2-1) by a score of 55-51.

  • Rockets still searching for 1st...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team dropped its third consecutive game in the 60-58 loss to Clay County at home Saturday.

    SCHS coach Ken Cates says that while the team has gotten off to a slow start, his players knew the beginning of the season would be tough.

  • Titans drop a pair of games over...

    The Collins High School girls’ basketball team dropped two games on as many nights over the weekend, bringing the Titans record to 0-3 early in the season.

    “Saturday was a quick turnaround against another very good team,” Titans coach Sean Pigman said. “We were competitive, but kind of ran out of gas. We didn’t shoot the ball well, but our kids have never quit and understand these tough games and schedule will pay off if they keep working.”

  • 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.
