  • Schools ready to finally get...

    With several games cancelled over the course of the last week, both Shelby County and Collins high schools are champing at the bit to kick off the back half of the basketball season.

    The Rocket boys’ team is notably one of those units, as the team travels to face off with North Oldham tonight beginning at 7:30 p.m., before traveling to take on Valley on Saturday afternoon.

    The Mustangs have had an up-and-down season thus far, having compiled an 8-8 record to this point in the year, while the Vikings sit at 8-6.

  • Titans, Rockets suffer weather...

    While players from Collins and Shelby County’s basketball teams may have enjoyed the extended time off from inclement weather, the coaches from both schools say the break could not have come at a worse time.

    The Rocket girls’ team just recently had its full complement players healthy for one of the few times all season when word came down about the postponement on Friday night.

  • Swim teams to celebrate senior...

    Swim teams from both Shelby County and Collins high schools will honor its outgoing seniors tonight, as Senior Night takes place at the Shelbyville Family Activity Center.

    With several athletes having been with the swim programs for both high schools, the Titans and Rockets will recognize the nine combined seniors before the meet kicks off.

    SCHS has three final-year swimmers that will be honored, in Sean Gilpatrick, Isaac Waurio and Dustin Clausen.

  • Hoops teams are rested, ready to...

    Thanks to several inches of snow and some incredibly poor timing on the part of the weather, both Shelby County and Collins’ basketball teams have had nearly a week off since last competing, and the break could not have come at a better time for all four teams.

    When it comes to the Rockets and Titans girls’ teams, both units have experienced injuries to key pieces throughout this season, and it has affected each squad’s ability to compete for seeding in the 30th District Tournament coming late in February.

  • Titan, Rocket boys take 1st and...

    Both Collins and Shelby County swim teams hit the pool for the first time since the end of winter break, showing no rust at all as the boys and girls’ teams from each school turned in top-two performances.

    In the boys’ standings, it was the Titans taking first place with a team score of 277, while the Rockets ended the night in second-place with 226.

    Collins was anchored by the personal best times from Jackson Stewart and Ezekiel Metz in the 100-yard breaststroke, which finished first and second respectively in the race.

  • Titans score season-high 89 in...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team had a banner night Tuesday, scoring a season-best 89 points and defeating a solid South Oldham team on the road. The win was the first time the Titans topped the 80-point barrier since its season-opening win over Harrison County.

  • Collins, Shelby square off in...

    With the final scheduled meetings between both Shelby County and Collins girls and boys basketball teams tonight at Collins fans are in for big show.

    Both games should be highly competitive contests as the Titans and Rockets are continuing to jockey for higher seeding in the 30th District tournament, which will kick off in late February.


    Coming into the girls’ contest, Shelby County and Collins may be heading in opposite directions as far as the season goes.

  • Shelby County’s rally falls short

    Despite a valiant second half comeback effort, Shelby County boys’ basketball could not find a way to put away district foe Anderson County Friday.

    After scoring no points in the first quarter and six points as a team in the second frame, the Rockets (2-12) came out of the halftime break trailing 22-6 but with a more up-tempo style of offense, and it paid dividends as SCHS gave the visiting Bearcats (5-8) all it could handle.

  • Titans earn pair of weekend road...

    Collins 75, Grant County 56

    The Titan boys’ basketball team closed out its slate of fantastic weekend performances with a 19-point drubbing of 8th Region foe Grant County on Saturday afternoon.

    Guard Jacob Feltner was feeling it on offense, scoring a game-high 23 and knocking down five of his six shot attempts from three-point range, 83 percent.

  • Shelby holds off J-Town for win

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team picked up back-to-back wins for the first time this season, holding off Jeffersontown Saturday on heels of a dominating performance against Trimble County Thursday.

    Shelby County 57, Jeffersontown 52

    Thanks to a solid shooting night from behind the arc and massive scoring performances from guards Kayla Bruner and Raydriana Stoudemire, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team had enough offensive firepower to pick up the win over a solid Jeffersontown (8-4) team on Saturday, 57-52.
