    The Rockets slammed visiting South Oldham 12-2 in five innings Thursday before falling 3-2 at Owen County on Friday. Shelby County rebounded, though, with a 1-0 shutout at Trimble County on Monday to reach the 10-win plateau.

    Against the Dragons (0-16), the Rockets pounded out 14 hits and sophomore Sydney Wright allowed only three on the mound at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    Cloyd, one of two seniors on the Collins softball team, hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning to propel the Titans to a 6-5 triumph over crosstown-rival Shelby County on Tuesday night, their Senior Night.

    “I would’ve cried [if we would’ve lost], I would’ve been pretty upset,” Cloyd said.

    Instead, she and fellow senior, Lindsey Ketcham, were all smiles after Collins’ fifth consecutive victory, when they were honored.

  • Collins, Shelby doubles qualify...

    FRANKFORT – A pair of boys’ doubles teams, likely for the first time ever, will represent the county at the KHSAA State Tennis Tournament.

Both teams lost semifinal matches Wednesday, but still advance.

  • Titans off to marvelous start...

    The Collins baseball team began the new month in fine fashion, winning four games in the first five days of May.

    Thanks in large part to a trio of home runs the Titans remained unbeaten all-time in 30th District regular-season games and bombed the Bearcats in Lawrenceburg.

  • Moore perfect in win over...

    The Shelby County baseball team registered a pair of home victories – highlighted by Kipp Moore’s 5-inning perfect game – late last week before falling to an 8th Region rival Monday.

    The Rockets defeated Whitefield Academy 8-3 Thursday and Newport Central Catholic, behind Moore on the mound, 10-0 in five innings Friday. However visiting South Oldham’s 1-0 victory ended Shelby County’s seven-game win streak.
