  • Rockets soar past Collins for...

    Michael Perry has seen a lot as a four-year member of the Shelby County varsity football team, but Friday’s 44-0 win over county rival Collins even surprised the three-year starter.

    “I thought, we thought coming in we could win this year if we played well, but winning 44-0, I don’t think anyone expected that. Collins is a good football team. We got off to a good start and things went our way. It’s a great feeling to be district champs. I am so happy for our team. Nobody picked us to do this, but we did it.”

  • Young earns Player of Year honors

    It was an up-and-down season for Shelby County junior golfer Lilly Young, but it has ended on an upswing for Young as she has been named the Region V Player of the Year by the state’s golf coaches.

    “I was really surprised by this, I found out at lunch today,” Young said. “I had no idea this was going to happen. It’s really nice.”

  • Collins falls to Oldham in...

    The Collins High School volleyball team is closer to moving into the region’s elite class but saw the work the program needs to do as the Titans fell to Oldham County 25-15, 25-21 and 25-13 in the opening round of the Eighth Region tournament at North Oldham Tuesday.

  • Shelby closes year with South...

    If the Shelby County Rockets look in the mirror this week they just might see South Oldham starting back at them.

    The Rockets, (8-1), fresh off winning the district championship with a dominating win over Collins last week will take on a South Oldham team on the road tonight that is also 8-1 and coming off a win over North Bullitt that gave them a 5A district title.

  • Titans close with Anderson

    The Collins Titans will see a lot of different looks but something very familiar Friday when they go to Anderson County to close the regular season.

    Collins will see an Anderson team with an identical 4-5 record and one that has battled through injuries all season long just like the Titans.

    “When you look at us, we have been through a lot of the same things,” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “I think both of us are coming into this game wanting to play well as we go into the playoffs next week.”

  • Shelby powers past North Oldham

    Tyler Drane refused to be ignored and made North Oldham pay as the Shelby County junior quarterback led the Rockets to a 24-7 district road win over the Mustangs Friday.

    With the North Oldham defense attempting to stop the Rokcets’ three-pronged rushing attack of fullback Malik Manica and wingbacks Michael Perry and Brandon Davis, Drane rushed for 54 yards on eight carries and scored twice and added a touchdown pass as the Rockets (6-1) evened their district record at 1-1.

    Drane supported Manica who had a monster game with 201 yards rushing on 27 carries.

  • Shelby girls ninth in state golf

    While the finish was not as strong as hoped, the Shelby County High School girls’ golf team may have laid a stronger foundation for next season.

    The Rockets finished with a team score of 703 in a tie for ninth place with Owensboro Catholic. Madison Central won the title with a 629 followed by the favorite, Elizabethtown with a 632.

  • Collins takes Shelby down in...

    It was all business for the Collins High School volleyball team Thursday as they rolled to a three-set win over county rival Shelby County.

    The Titans beat Shelby County 25-15, 25-12 and 25-16 to secure their hold as the No. 1 seed in next week’s district tournament at Spencer County.

    “I felt really good about how we played,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “We have been talking all year about coming out and playing consistent from the start to the finish in a game and I think the girls delivered on that.”

  • Collins falls to Cenral Hardin

    Central Hardin found a new way to score points and Collins faced a familiar bad quarter of play as the Bruins rolled by the Titans 40-6 Friday in Elizabethtown.

    Known for their power Wing-T attack, Central Hardin turned to the air and scored 21 points in the second quarter to break the game open against Collins.

  • Shelby headed to North Oldham

    Entering the mid-point of the season the Shelby County Rockets and North Oldham Mustangs are coming into tonight’s game at North Oldham on the opposite ends of their preseason expectations, but both desperately need a win to solidify their spots in a very tough district.
