  • Rockets soar past Collins for...

    Michael Perry has seen a lot as a four-year member of the Shelby County varsity football team, but Friday’s 44-0 win over county rival Collins even surprised the three-year starter.

    “I thought, we thought coming in we could win this year if we played well, but winning 44-0, I don’t think anyone expected that. Collins is a good football team. We got off to a good start and things went our way. It’s a great feeling to be district champs. I am so happy for our team. Nobody picked us to do this, but we did it.”

  • Collins falls to Cenral Hardin

    Central Hardin found a new way to score points and Collins faced a familiar bad quarter of play as the Bruins rolled by the Titans 40-6 Friday in Elizabethtown.

  • Collins takes Shelby down in...

    It was all business for the Collins High School volleyball team Thursday as they rolled to a three-set win over county rival Shelby County.

    The Titans beat Shelby County 25-15, 25-12 and 25-16 to secure their hold as the No. 1 seed in next week’s district tournament at Spencer County.

    “I felt really good about how we played,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “We have been talking all year about coming out and playing consistent from the start to the finish in a game and I think the girls delivered on that.”

  • Shelby powers past North Oldham

    Tyler Drane refused to be ignored and made North Oldham pay as the Shelby County junior quarterback led the Rockets to a 24-7 district road win over the Mustangs Friday.

    With the North Oldham defense attempting to stop the Rokcets’ three-pronged rushing attack of fullback Malik Manica and wingbacks Michael Perry and Brandon Davis, Drane rushed for 54 yards on eight carries and scored twice and added a touchdown pass as the Rockets (6-1) evened their district record at 1-1.

    Drane supported Manica who had a monster game with 201 yards rushing on 27 carries.

  • Collins will take on powerful...

    Just a week after placing themselves right back in the thick of the district hunt with a 23-0 upset of No. 4-ranked Franklin County, the Collins High School football team will take another jump in competition Friday with a road game at 6A power Central Hardin.

    Like Collins, the Bruins are 3-3 this year with the three losses coming to three of the best teams in the state.

    From one extreme to the other the one constant for the Collins High School football team is they will face another powerhouse program tonight when Franklin County comes to town for the Titans’ Homecoming game.

    “We are excited about this game” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “We understand how big a game this is for our program and know we are going to have to play well. I like that our kids are getting to play in these big games and the hope is that we will rise to the challenge of playing another good football team.”

  • Jets enjoy reunion

    The tales probably got a little taller and the athletic exploits a little grander but when the Shelbyville Jets fastpitch softball team got together last weekend for a reunion, the sense of friendship and family that always personified the team stayed at the forefront.

    The reunion had 17 former team members and more than 50 family members of players show up to reminisce and renew old friendships.
