  • Rockets growing on the course

    The Shelby County boys’ golf team picked up a much-needed victory Tuesday, defeating Western Hills by a score of 184-216.

    The top golfers for the Rockets were Zach Houchin, who shot a team-low 42, as well as teammates Chris Soard and Ben Betts who each shot 47’s on the 9-hole match. Eighth-grader Dillon Fields was not far behind Soard and Betts, shooting a 48.

    Head coach Casey Page was glad to pick up the victory, even though he knows that the team has the potential to be even better than it was Tuesday.

  • Titans rebound, whip Spencer...

    After falling to Male and Oldham County, the Collins’ volleyball team swept Spencer County in its home opener three sets to none.

    “I was really happy we were able to be back in good spirits after the two losses,” coach Cary Clark said. “We just came off playing against sixteenth-ranked Male and ninth-ranked Oldham, but I think those were good for our team, to be able to face better competition.”

  • Rockets look to bounce back at...

    The Shelby County High School football team will look to move past a season-opening loss as it travels to Leitchfield to take on 5A Grayson County tonight at 7:30.

    The Cougars had a rough 2015 campaign, only winning two games before being bounced from the first round of the state playoffs by a score of 69-0 by Owensboro. And this season hasn’t looked much better as the Cougars opened with a 42-8 loss at home to Hancock County.

  • Physical Bullitt East visits...

    Coming off of a season-opening win at Montgomery County, Collins High School will look to make it 2-0 when it welcomes Bullitt East to Shelbyville tonight.

    The Chargers struggled in 2015, winning just three games before being blown out by Fairdale, 53-6, in the first round of the 5A State Playoffs.

    Collins drilled Bullitt East 55-15 last season.

  • Rockets hammer Henry County, 9-0

    While last Thursday’s seven-goal effort against North Bullitt was more of a one-man show, the Shelby County boys’ soccer team shared the spotlight in a 9-0 win over Henry County on Tuesday.

    Junior forward Caleb Patten continued his hot streak on the offensive end, racking up four goals against a struggling Henry team, but this week Paul Nethery also added two goals in the rout. Rounding out the scoring were Kyrien Stone, Nathon Mayes, and Thomas Wilkerson, who scored goal each and added to the frustration of the Wildcats’ keeper on several occasions.

  • Collins capitalizes on...

    For the second season in a row, Collins High School marched into Mt. Sterling and defeated Recreation Bowl host Montgomery County High School, this time by a count of 34-18.

    Forcing Montgomery to commit error after error was the key to victory for the Titans, with Collins recovering four fumbles, three inside the opponents’ 25-yard line.

  • Garrard holds off Rockets in...

    Heading to Lancaster, the Shelby County High School football team knew they would have to shut down Garrard County’s potent rushing attack.

    But The Golden Lions’ had other plans.

    Garrard senior running back Jacob Foley gashed the Rockets defense for 282 yards on 30 carries as well as five rushing touchdowns – including touchdown runs of 72, 69, and 36 yards – on the way to a 41-31 win over Shelby County.

  • Titan golfers hold off Anderson...

    Sophomore Catie Kelly led the way for Collins girls’ golf on Monday, shooting a match-low 46 and helping clinch a win over Anderson County.

    The Titans picked up the 202-215 victory over the Lady Bearcats, with Collins’ coach Matt Cockrell being satisfied with the team’s performance, holding a 13-stroke advantage when the match had ended.

    “I think the team did really well despite playing on the white tees,” Cockrell said. “Catie led the way for everybody. She dropped a lot of putts to help us win.”

  • Eastern rallies late to tie...

    With Collins girls’ soccer leading 1-0 for the majority of Monday’s match, Eastern put in a goal late to snatch a 1-1 stalemate from the jaws of defeat.

    The Titans got on the board in the middle of the first half, as junior forward Issabella Trevino tapped the ball past Eastern’s fallen keeper to score Collins’ only goal of the game.

  • Oldham knocks off Rockets

    On Saturday, the Shelby County High School boys’ soccer team traveled to Oldham County High School and took a 5-0 loss at the hands of the Colonels.

    The contest only went for one half, with the second being called off due to lightning.

    Head coach Michael Hornback said that the combination of Oldham’s talent and poor weather was just too much for Shelby to overcome.
