  • Oldham County eliminates Shelby...

    A tough loss to perennial 8th Region runner-up Oldham County ended Shelby County’s volleyball campaign on Wednesday night, as the Rockets fell in four sets to the Colonels.

    “It was the best way to go out,” SCHS coach Kristen Kapp said. “If we weren’t going to win, that would be the way to go out.”

    OC (23-12) jumped out to an early lead in the first set and rode that deficit to a 25-17 opening frame victory.

  • Collins falls to North Oldham in...

    Collins volleyball fought hard against opponent North Oldham on Wednesday night, but it was not enough to overcome the Mustangs, as the Titans season ended in a four-set loss to North.

    Following a slow first set that saw the Mustangs (26-7) close out Collins 25-12; the Titans kicked it into gear in the final three sets of play.

    “I was a little disappointed in the way we started,” Titans coach Cary Clark said. “We hesitated out of the gate. The second set we kind of found our legs and started playing harder.”

  • Shelby County travels to face...

    Shelby County will end its season tonight with a tough test, as the Rockets travel to face off against 5A power South Oldham.

    The Dragons (8-1) have been a force on both offense and defense this season, with its lone loss coming in week one to Christian Academy-Louisville, 28-14.

    Since that game, South has been on a complete tear, outscoring its last eight opponents 359-46.

  • Collins hosts Pulaski County...

    Collins’ defensive backfield should see a good amount of work tonight, when the Titans take on a pass-heavy Pulaski County team at home.

    The Maroons (4-5) are led by junior QB Wiley Cain, who has thrown for more than 2,500 yards – 285 per game.

    Luckily for the Titans, Cain is prone to making mistakes with his throws.

    The junior has tossed 20 touchdowns to 13 interceptions so far this season, and the Pulaski quarterback has also been hampered by the lack of a consistent rushing attack.

  • Titans haul in district title

    Behind four second-quarter touchdown passes by senior quarterback J.R. Lucas, Collins went up big early and eventually cruised to a 38-19 victory over rival Shelby County, taking the District 4 crown in the process.

    “Of course it always feels good to beat your rival team, but all that really matters is that we won the district,” J.R. Lucas said after the game. “We get that home advantage in the playoffs, but I have a lot of buddies [on Shelby County] too, it’s always fun to beat them.”

  • Collins sweeps Simon Kenton,...

    After a tight first set between Collins and Simon Kenton, the Titans took advantage in the second and third frames to sweep its way to the semifinals in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament Monday night at Henry County High School.

    “We stole the first set, we didn’t earn it at all,” Titans coach Cary Clark said after the match. “We played better in the second and third sets. I think more than anything, we kept in points and forced [Simon Kenton] to make plays, and they didn’t make those plays.”

  • Eades sets school tackle record...

    Collins linebacker Nick Eades has brought toughness and intensity to the Titans defensive unit for several seasons now, and now will have his name in the school’s record books as a result.

    Along with winning both the rivalry game and clinching the district title on Friday night, Eades broke the school’s record for career tackles, with 476 total stops.

    The linebacker logged 18 total tackles in the 38-19 defeat of Shelby County, breaking the record of 466, set by former Titan and current Western Kentucky University standout linebacker Masai Whyte.

  • Collins tops Shelby for district...

    Collins volleyball’s domination of the 30th District continued on Tuesday night, as the Titans claimed a fourth consecutive district title with a three-sets-to-none victory over crosstown rival Shelby County.

    “We were a little bit sloppy execution-wise,” Titans coach Cary Clark said. “I’d love to see the team have a little more of a killer instinct. There were a lot of times tonight I thought we had [Shelby] on the ropes, and it could have gone a lot quicker and easier.”

  • Collins falls to Oldham

    With less than five minutes remaining in regulation and the score knotted at 1-1, Oldham County’s Brandon Barrera cashed in on a cross, burying a shot in the back of the net for a 2-1 Colonel’s lead and eliminating Collins from the 8th Region Tournament in the process.

    “We let our guard down in the midfield,” Titans coach Jamil Shalash said. “We still did not give up, we had some chances in the last four minutes to no avail.”

  • Hometown Showdown

    Tonight’s matchup between rivals Collins and Shelby County may have more on the line than just bragging rights.

    With both teams sitting atop the 30th District at this point in the season, the Rockets and Titans are both looking to clinch a district title and secure a home playoff game in the process.

    In order to accomplish this, both will use contrasting offenses, with Shelby showing off the power running of a triple-option attack and Collins employing a high-flying offense that has put up video game-like numbers this season.
