  • Collins holds off Shelby behind...

    As the buzzer sounded on Collins’ 43-38 victory of Shelby County in girls’ basketball Friday, fans might have felt like they just watched two different games.

    Collins’ Trinity’s Warfied sunk two free throws with three seconds left in the first half, sending the Titans to the locker room with a 16-14 lead.

    The game had shown very little offense to that point, with both teams struggling to finish at the rim and with outside shooting.

    But the second half was an entirely different story.

  • Shelby tops Warren East early...

    Despite playing well into Friday night in the clash with Collins, the Shelby County boys’ basketball team rose early Saturday morning to defeat Warren East 57-43 in the State Farm Shootout held at South Warren High School.

    A large part of the team’s win was senior guard Jordan Armstrong, who took home Player of the Game honors after scoring a team-high 12 points, including eight in the second half points to lead the Rockets (4-12) to victory over the Raiders (10-5).

  • Collins scores MLK Day win at...

    While most teams were off to enjoy the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, the Collins girls’ basketball team was earning a hard-fought 64-59 victory at Oldham County Monday night.

    Thanks to Olivia Federle’s 19-point performance, the Titans (13-8) climbed out of an early hole on the scoreboard and seized the win over the Colonels (9-8).

  • Shelby, Collins face off for 3rd...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team will not be the only team missing a key piece tonight.

    Shelby County’s Josh Edwards will begin serving his two-game suspension for an ejection tonight and will not be available for the matchup.

  • Heady named Ky. Mountain Trail,...

    After nearly two decades of both trail and long-distance running, USA Track and Field has named Shelby County resident Cynthia Heady the Kentucky Mountain Trail and Ultra Female Runner of the Year.

    “Honestly, receiving the award was more humbling than anything,” Heady said. “I just love running, and it’s neat to be recognized for it and it makes me realize how much I want to give back to the running community.”

  • Edwards to compete in second all...

    A month after being named to the Louisville Metro All-Star team for his kicking prowess, Shelby County kicker Josh Edwards will take part in the 10th annual Kentucky-Tennessee Border Bowl in Gatlinburg, Tenn. on Jan. 21.

    Edwards was a standout for SCHS during the 2016 season, handling both punting and kicking duties.

    The senior is also a member of the school’s basketball team, and at one point, was juggling practicing for two all-star games as well as the hoops squad.

  • Collins to hit road for month of...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team will face by far its toughest test on the schedule when it plays 10 straight games away from home, beginning tonight against Shelby County.

    And the Titans will face most, if not all, of the games without starters Jacob Feltner and Nick Fort, as the duo recovers from injuries.

    Both guards were injured in Friday’s 59-51 win over district foe Spencer County, with both impairments coming during the final minutes of the game.

  • Shorthanded Titans defeat South...

    With forward Dominique Turner still missing time due to an illness, the Collins boys’ basketball team relied heavily on Charlie Cochran and the team’s bench in Monday’s game against South Oldham.

    And the Titans (14-3) got just that, defeating the Dragons 71-65.

  • Collins picks up 2 wins over...

    With guards Nick Fort and Jacob Feltner missing extended time due to injury, and forward Dominique Turner out with an illness, the Collins boys’ basketball team received an extremely efficient performance from Charlie Cochran to help vanquish Grant County (8-8) in overtime Saturday.

    The senior forward posted his second consecutive double-double in as many days, scoring 25 points on 71 percent shooting and grabbing 12 of the team’s 34 rebounds to help lead the Titans (13-3) to the 59-51 victory.

  • Rockets drop tough game at...

    Despite drawing first blood against Anderson County on Friday night, the Shelby County boys’ basketball team could not hold the Bearcats for a full four quarters.

    The Rockets (3-11) grabbed a quick 2-0 lead to start the game thanks to a back door cut from senior guard Jordan Armstrong, but it would be the team’s final lead of the game as Anderson (10-4) outscored SCHS 64-51 to grab the district win.

    Armstrong led the Rockets in scoring with 14 points and pulled down six rebounds in the contest.
