  • Ballard holds off Collins

    On a special Thursday night edition of high school football, Ballard did just enough to outlast Collins and picked up a 34-28 win over the Titans in the process.

    The Bruins (1-2) connection of senior quarterback Terrance May and junior wide receiver Elijah Downing gave Collins (2-1) trouble for much of the night.

    May connected on 20 of his 36 attempts, racking up 353 yards through the air and four touchdowns along with an interception.

    Downing was a large part of the yardage total, hauling in 10 passes for 213 yards and a score from May.

  • Shelby faces off with Meade...

    In what is expected to be a water-logged, slugfest of a ground game, Shelby County will welcome 6A Meade County to Robert Doyle Stadium tonight at 7:30.

    Both teams run a version of the triple option offense, with the Green Wave (1-1) opting for a Wing-T rushing attack that was led by several different rushers last season.

    Senior running back Zach Babb led the pack for Meade in 2016, with 663 yards and seven touchdowns last season.

    Last week in the 48-0 win over Anderson County, Babb compiled a team-leading 196 yards on the ground in the victory.

  • Collins grabs district win at...

    Collins volleyball’s quest for a fourth consecutive district title marches on, with the Titans heading into Lawrenceburg and defeating Anderson County (2-3) in straight sets on Tuesday night.

    The team from Shelbyville took the first set by a relatively narrow 25-21 margin before closing out the Bearcats with second and third set scores of 25-7 and 25-14.

    With the win, Collins moves to 2-0 in matches against 30th District foes.

  • Shelby defeats Spencer in...

    While Spencer County may have fought and clawed to stay in the 30th District volleyball match against Shelby County on Tuesday night, the Rockets showed it had the superior team.

    The Rockets (6-4) used its depth and solid net play to defeat the Bears (6-4), as Shelby moved to 1-0 in district play in the process.

    “[The match] was fun to say the least,” Rockets coach Kristen Kapp said. “The girls played relaxed and got the job done. I tried not to apply too much pressure to win, instead, I told them to play point by point.”

  • Titans shut out Amazons in road...

    The Titan girls’ soccer team was in mid-season form on Monday, cruising to a 5-0-road win over host Louisville Collegiate.

    Senior midfielder Caroline Burkhardt grabbed the initial lead for the Titans (3-1), and eventually put the game out of reach with a three-goal performance.

    The Amazons (2-3) had no answer for Collins on offense or defense, as the Titans cruised to its third win of the season.

  • Rockets continue growing on links

    In what was described as a ‘frustrating’ day on the course by Shelby County coach Casey Page, the Rockets took a tough 21-stroke loss to Anderson County at Weissinger Hills Golf Course on Tuesday.

    Although SCHS was led by freshman Zach Houchin’s nine-hole round of 34, the home team could not find a way to outplay its opponent.

  • Collins sets rushing record in...

    Collins ran over, around, through and past Moore Friday, rolling up a school-record 403 yards rushing in a 54-14 win over the visiting Mustangs.

    The Titans (2-0) hit their stride in the second half, pouring on 33 unanswered points to turn a comfortable margin into a rout.

  • O’Hare leads Rockets in rout

    From the opening kickoff, it looked as if Friday’s contest between Shelby County and Atherton would be a competitive one.

    But appearances can be deceiving.

    The Rebels returned the opening kick to the Rockets’ 16-yard line before the drive stalled out and Atherton settled for three points.

    It would be the final time the game appeared to be evenly matched.

  • Shelby County welcomes third...

    Shelby County High School enshrined its third Hall of Fame class Saturday night in front of numerous former alumni and athletes.

    The youngest member of the 2017 class was Shelby Skoczenski (formerly Ellis), a state champion for the Rockets and school record holder in the high jump track and field event.

    “It was an honor to become a member of such an awesome cadre of folks that came before me,” she said. “Rocket athletics helped turn me into who I am, and it’s very much appreciated.”

  • Collins hammers Shelby

    Thursday’s first and only regular season meeting between the Collins and Shelby County boys’ soccer teams proved to be non-competitive from the jump.

    The Titans (2-1) scored three goals in each half to rout the Rockets (2-3-1) 6-1 at the Shelby County athletic complex.

    Senior midfielder Kevin Lanham netted a hat trick for the Titans and paved the way for an easy Collins win.
