  • Carroll County tops Shelby...

    A tough start saw Shelby County fall behind early on Tuesday night in its comeback effort against Carroll County as the Panthers ended up grinding away the clock for the 57-53 win.

    After a first-quarter littered with self-inflicted mistakes caused SCHS to trail 18-9 into the second quarter, the Rockets were forced to play catch-up throughout and just could not muster enough offense late to pick up the win.

  • Bearcats hand Titans 2nd loss of...

    Collins girls’ basketball continued its rocky start to the season on Tuesday night in a 17-point loss to 30th District foe Anderson County.

    The Titans (0-2) had trouble containing the Bearcats’ guard combo of junior Jaclynn Ruble and freshman Sophie Smith.

    Ruble scored a game-high 17 points for Anderson, while Smith added 13, the second-highest point total in the game.

    “We gave good effort but didn’t play well,” Titans coach Sean Pigman said. “We struggled shooting the ball all night.”

  • Shelby falls to CAL on the road

    Shelby County boys’ basketball and Christian Academy-Louisville were locked in a low-scoring, defensive slugfest on Tuesday night, with the Centurions coming away with a 42-39 win.

    The Rockets (1-3) shot just 38 percent from the floor and 20 percent from three-point range in the loss, as SCHS struggled to establish offensive consistency against CAL (1-1).

    When it was all said and done, Shelby finished the game with no scorers reaching double-digits against the Centurions in its third loss of the year.

    Sometimes a team just gets hot from the floor, and Gallatin’s jump shooting did just that in Collins’ second game of a back-to-back.

    The Wildcats (3-0) went white-hot in the second half, shooting 70 percent from the field and 67 percent from deep to hand the Titans its first loss of the season.

  • Shelby girls split weekend slate

    Coming into the season with the No. 10 preseason ranking in the state, John Hardin played like it on Saturday night, rolling up 76 points after the first three quarters and forcing a running clock in the win over Shelby.

  • Franklin County holds off Titans

    Although it was in striking distance of Franklin County many times, Collins could not string together enough offensive possessions to defeat the Flyers on Thursday night, falling 61-49 in the Titans’ season opener.

    Franklin used 18 points on 78 percent shooting and four rebounds from senior guard Kindall Talley to stave off the scrappy Titans’ squad in the 12-point victory.

  • Early pressure stifles Shelby in...

    An early deficit and a smothering full-court press left a new Shelby County boys’ basketball team searching for answers on Tuesday night, as the Rockets fell 65-45 at Mercer County in its season-opener.

    SCHS (0-1) came into the game with just two established starters and experienced some early season jitters with three new players seeing starting minutes for the Rockets.

  • Collins sweeps home meet

    Both Collins and Shelby County swim teams continued strong starts to the season on Wednesday night, as the squads turned in some top finishes in the second meet of the early season.

    In the girls’ standings, athletes Sam Monarch, Abby Jacobs and Mary Grace Vest led Collins en route to its team victory with 305 points, ending 24 ahead of second-place Oldham County.
