  • Jets enjoy reunion

    The tales probably got a little taller and the athletic exploits a little grander but when the Shelbyville Jets fastpitch softball team got together last weekend for a reunion, the sense of friendship and family that always personified the team stayed at the forefront.

    The reunion had 17 former team members and more than 50 family members of players show up to reminisce and renew old friendships.

  • Collins hosting Franklin County

    From one extreme to the other the one constant for the Collins High School football team is they will face another powerhouse program tonight when Franklin County comes to town for the Titans’ Homecoming game.

    “We are excited about this game” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “We understand how big a game this is for our program and know we are going to have to play well. I like that our kids are getting to play in these big games and the hope is that we will rise to the challenge of playing another good football team.”

    In a game that had a little bit of everything and plenty of drama the Shelby County Rockets suffered their first loss of the year, 31-28, to Franklin County Friday in the district opener for both teams.

  • Collins falls to Spencer County...


    It wasn’t quite in the blink of an eye but fortune turned for the Collins High School football team quickly Friday and badly in a 35-14 road loss to Spencer County.

  • Collins scores late to best...

    It’s been a one step at a time season for the Collins girls’ soccer team and the girls took a big step toward one of their goals Wednesday with a 2-0 district seeding win over Shelby County.

    “Collins has never won a post-season game in girls’ soccer and if we can beat Spencer County now we will not be facing the No. 1 seed in the district tournament for the first time,” Collins coach Tim Oltman said. “One of our goals coming into this season was to win a district game before the tournament. This is a big win for us.”

    Shelby County could see the 0-4 Bullitt East team or the team that was picked ninth in the preseason 5A poll this Friday when they host the Chargers in their homecoming game.

    That the normally powerful Chargers have opened the year winless has been a shock to most but it also comes with some understanding.

    “They have been kind of dinged up all year, I don’t think they have ever had their full team,” Shelby County coach Todd Shipley said. “Plus they have played great competition.”

  • Collins hosting powerful Boyle...

    There could be a lot of question answered for the Collins High School football team Friday after they face Boyle County.

    Boyle County, ranked No. 1 in 3A is 4-0 this season and expected to challenge for another state title again this year.
