  • 30th District tournament set to...

    Following this weekend’s slate of games, Shelby County and Collins high schools will kick off the 30th District Tournament with games beginning on Tuesday night.

    On the boys’ side of the bracket, it will be the renewal of the crosstown rivalry between both schools in the third meeting of this season between the Titans and Rockets.

    SCHS has been on a tear, winning four of out of its previous six games and seemingly finding some footing on both ends of the floor.

  • Rockets, Titans earn spots at...

    Both Shelby County and Collins’ swim teams turned in strong performances at the Region Swim Meet at Woodford County High School over the weekend and will be represented at the KHSAA State Swim Meet later this month.

    “Our swimmers swam well. They swam fast [over the weekend] to qualify and swam faster [in the championship round],” Swim coach Tom Coons said. “That is all you can ask as a coach. You go a personal best time when the pressure is on, and that shows excellent composure [as an athlete].”

  • Shelby picks up weekend wins

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team closed its season on a high note over the weekend, defeating a visiting North Oldham squad in host duty on Friday night before traveling to Williamstown on Saturday and picking up a win there as well.

    A strong defensive effort allowed the Rockets (8-20) to officially close its season on a two-game winning streak, as SCHS topped Williamstown by seven points on Saturday.

  • Titans split tough slate

    A tough late stretch of games for Collins boys’ basketball continued over the weekend, as the Titans (19-8) split a pair of games against DeSales and Doss as the regular season winds down and the postseason begins.

    The Titans fought tooth-and-nail to try and overcome Doss on Saturday night, but the Dragons found a way to overcome its opponent in the overtime period.

  • Rockets defeat Henry County

    After a tight halftime score saw Henry County leading Shelby County boys’ basketball by one-point, the Rockets took control of the second half on the way to a 71-65 win over the visiting Wildcats on Friday night.

    A smaller lineup, boasting four and even five guards at a time, gave Henry trouble, as the visiting team struggled to keep up with the speed and elusiveness of the Rockets.

  • Owen tops Collins

    A rough second quarter for Collins girls’ basketball came back to haunt the Titans in its Saturday trip to Owen County, as the host team came away with the 53-47 win.

    Collins (11-15) could only muster five points in the second, being outscored by six points in that frame alone, 11-5.

    Combine that an injury to its main interior presence in Mary-Clare Megibben after halftime, and the two factors ended up contributing to the six-point loss to the Rebels (16-8).

  • Colonels edge Titans, 55-51

    Too many errant passes along with a slack interior defense equaled a Collins girls’ basketball loss on Tuesday night against visiting Oldham County, extending Collins’ losing streak to three games.

    The Titans failed to convert on several opportunities late, after center Mary-Clare Megibben hit a putback shot right under the basket to cut the Colonels lead to 55-51 with 37.5 seconds remaining.

  • Oldham comes from behind to top...

    If Tuesday’s matchup between Collins and Oldham County is a preview of the upcoming 8th Region tournament, it’s going to be a fantastic postseason.

    The contest came down to the final possession, with the visiting Colonels escaping with the victory, as Oldham’s Branden Dewitt made a pair of clutch plays to seal the win.

    Down 46-45 to the Titans (18-7) with 6.9 seconds remaining, Dewitt sliced his way inside the paint and hit a contested layup from the right side of the basket to give his team a one-point lead.

  • Shelby County stomps Waggener,...

    Shelby County girls’ basketball picked up a much-needed victory in spectacular fashion, dominating a quality Waggener team on Tuesday night.

    Thanks to a highly efficient offensive game from sophomore guard Kayla Bruner and some solid assist numbers, the Rockets (6-20) blew out the Wildcats by 15 points and snapped its five-game losing streak in the process.

  • Rockets drop final district game...

    Spencer County’s perimeter defense gave Shelby County boys’ basketball fits in a 30th District matchup, as the Rockets struggled to muster offensive success on Tuesday night and snapped their three-game winning streak.

    The Rockets ended the night with just one player, T.J. Robinson, in double-figures in scoring, as the team turned in first and third quarters of action in which it scored fewer than 10 points in each frame.
