  • Collins looking to improve next...


    After fighting through the first losing season in school history with a 5-7 record the Collins High School football team could be poised for a big rebound next fall.

  • Rockets beat Beechwood in...

    With three top quality interior players back, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team’s new coach got a good look at what his team is capable of in a preseason scrimmage against Beechwood at the Scott County Hoopfest Saturday.

    Hoping to keep the Rockets’ trio of six-footers in Mackenzie and Savannnah Raizor and Justus Martin in check, Beechwood employed a tight zone defense through much of the scrimmage.

  • Former SCHS standout finds home...

    Donovan Johnson has not been an overnight sensation – but he’s been pretty darn close to one.

    Johnson, a 2010 graduate of Shelby County High School, has been playing professional basketball in Chile since signing with Club Deportesin Puente Alto, Chile on Oct. 24 and he has quickly emerged as one of the Liga National league’s top players.

    The move to Chile came after a lot of work on Johnson’s part after finishing his collegiate career at Kentucky Wesleyan last spring.

  • Collins JV squad finished...

    It would be easy to say the Collins High School JV football team followed the script this year because they did.

    The Titans posted a perfect 8-0 record on the season and were almost a model of the play that has brought success to the varsity program the past five seasons.

    With a large group of sophomores and even some freshmen contributing at the varsity level for the Titans this season, the staff was able to incorporate those players into the JV program as well.

  • Shelby JV shows lots of promise

    A championship game loss didn’t dampen the season for the Shelby County High School JV football team as the Rockets posted an 8-1 record this year.

    Shelby went undefeated in their regular season before falling to North Oldham 28-14 in their conference championship game.

    “We had a very good year,” Shelby JV coach Nick Edwards said. “We beat North Oldham in the regular season, but they came back and got us in the championship game so that was a little bit disappointing.”

  • Football switch changes 4A’s...

    The road to Bowling Green may just lead through Bowling Green in the near future for the local high school football teams.

    Under a new alignment of teams ratified in July by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association, Shelby County and Collins will compete in the same 4A district next season thanks to Shelby dropping down from 5A

  • HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: North dims...

    Neither the week nor the results were what the Collins High School Titans were expecting with their annual district matchup with North Oldham.

    After a week in which the Collins program lost three starters and a coach, the Titans then suffered the second worst loss in program history Friday as North Oldham routed the Titans 43-0.


    There were no surprises for the Shelby County Rockets Friday against Bullitt East, just a few drives where East executed a bit better en route to a 36-20 win.

    “They (Bullitt East) did just what we expected them to do,” Shelby County coach Todd Shipley said. “They were a little bit more physical than we were at times.”

    The win gave the Chargers second place in the district and a home playoff game in the first round, while Shelby County dropped to third and will go on the road for the first round of the playoffs.


    Both local high school football teams will go on the road for their playoff games this seasons after finishing third in their respective districts.

    And that’s not the only similarity. Both the Rockets and Titans will play first round games in Jefferson County.
