  • Collins slips in loss to Eastern

    The Collins High School volleyball team took its fifth loss of the season at the hands of Eastern on Wednesday night.

    “Definitely disappointed, and thought it was a match we would win,” Titans coach Cary Clark said. “The main thing was, our serve-receive wasn’t where it needed to be. We were outserved by Eastern, and it took us out of our system.”

    The match was a back-and-forth battle to start, with the Eagles taking the first set by a score of 25-21. The Titans fought back in the following set, winning 25-17.

  • Titans look to rebound at...

    After suffering its second loss of the season on Friday night, the Collins High School football team (3-2) looks to regroup in a match-up at struggling Franklin County (2-4) tonight.

    Luckily for the Titans, Franklin is coming off of a loss of its own after being blown out by Shelby County 52-18 last week.

    A quick strike offense left the Flyers scrambling to make plays last week, which led to Franklin turning the ball over four times in the loss.

  • Titans race past South Oldham, 3...

    The magic number for the Collins High School boys’ soccer team is two.

    When the Titans score at least two goals, the team is 4-0-1 this season, and 0-10 when it does not.

    That same pattern held on Tuesday night, when Collins put three goals in the net and defeated South Oldham by a score of 3-2.

  • Rockets rally for tie against...

    On Tuesday night, the Shelby County High School boys’ soccer team fought Western Hills to a 2-2 tie.

    “I’m satisfied with the tie, because a few weeks ago, Western Hills beat Woodford County, who is a top-ten team,” SCHS coach Michael Hornback said.

    The Rockets first goal came from the foot of junior forward Caleb Patten, who put in his team-leading 15th goal of the season thanks to an assist by senior Kyrien Stone.

  • Shelby girls 2nd at golf regional

    Thanks to the efforts of senior Lilly Young, the Shelby County girls’ golf team is heading to Bowling Green once again for the KHSAA State Championship Tournament.

    Young led the Rockets with a 1-over par 73 and finished second individually despite difficult rainy conditions Monday at Midland Trail Golf Course in Louisville.

    Shelby County finished second overall as a team, shooting a 331, 26 strokes behind the winning team in Sacred Heart.

  • Creque earns first start at UofL

    Although the University of Louisville football team is one of the top squads in America, led by quarterback Lamar Jackson, the team is still looking to upgrade in its kicking game.

    Enter former Collins High School placekicker Blanton Creque, who earned his first start Saturday.

    Last season, the all-state talent walked on with UofL and spent the 2015 season redshirted. Creque says that he spent the year off improving his skills and learning from his new coaches.

  • Late interception lifts Spencer...

    While the Collins High School (3-2, 0-1 in the district) football team put up a solid effort against district foe Spencer County (5-1, 1-0 in the district), turnovers ended up being the deciding factor.

    With 3:55 remaining in the final quarter and Collins down 35-28 to the visiting Bears, quarterback J.R. Lucas was picked off by Spencer’s Hunter Brown, who took the interception 57 yards for a touchdown.

  • Rockets run through Franklin...

    There’s no place like home.

    No team understands that mantra better than the Shelby County High School (4-2) football team, which is now 3-0 this season at Robert Doyle Stadium after dominating Franklin County (2-4) 52-18 on Friday.

    “It’s a good feeling [to win at home],” SCHS running back Brandon Davis said. “We just do it for the fans and the people that support us.”

  • Rockets could pick up a win

    Bullitt East has to be kicking itself.

    After defeating Shelby County 56-31 last Friday night for its first win of the season, the Chargers may have to forfeit the game.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association charged yesterday that Bullitt East kicker Christian Foster had not participated in enough practices to be eligible to play in her first game.

    The violation was self-reported according to Bullitt East athletic director Troy Barr.
