  • 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.”

  • 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.

    North Oldham will be a heavy favorite in the boys’ and girls’ AAA regional cross country meet at Collins Saturday, but the individual titles will still run through Collins High School.

    Both North teams have been ranked in the top five for the most of the season and the boys’ team has been No. 1 for all but two weeks of the year.

    “It’s going to be tough for anyone to beat North in both races,” Collins coach Stephen Drawbaugh said.

  • High school football: Collins...

    After last week’s 33-14 loss at Simon Kenton, Collins Head Coach Jerry Lucas said he saw good things, and that’s been his focus this week as the Titans prepare for South Oldham.

  • High school football: Execution...

    The Shelby County Rockets will hit the road again this week to face another boarder rival with a 7:30 kick-off at Spencer County High School.

    The game was nearly moved to Shelby County after the Bears’ field was hit by lightning two weeks ago, forcing Spencer to hit the road in its opener at Thomas Nelson.

    That game played less than half of a quarter, however, before it was called due to the weather with Spencer County leading 7-0.

    But in just a few minutes of play, the Bears (1-0) had already amassed 115 rushing yards on just five carries.

  • High school boys soccer: Tough...

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team has struggled in three of their first five games this year, but head coach Tony Woods said he expected it.

    The Rockets fell 6-0 to South Oldham on Wednesday and that was on the heels of a 5-2 loss to cross-town rival Collins on Tuesday.
