  • Shelby snaps 2-game skid with win

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team is elated to have its junior point guard back from injury, and it showed in the team’s 56-46 win over Fleming County Wednesday.

    After missing the previous three games with a concussion, Zephy Gray returned to lead the team in scoring with 18, including 16 in the second half.

  • Swimmers rally around hurt...

    After a car accident just over a month ago left him with numerous head injuries, the Collins High School swim team has raised and donated $1,200 to Titan athlete Webb Bates to help with his recovery.

    Bates, a kicker with the school’s football team as well as a swimmer, booted five field goals and 17 extra points as a member of the Titans.

    Following his accident on Nov. 23, he has required multiple surgeries to recover from his injuries.

  • Megibben smashes Collins blocks...

    While we may live in a round-ball era of scoring hundreds of points and shooting impossibly deep from behind the arc, it’s refreshing to see players still pride themselves on being a defensive stopper.

    Collins sophomore forward Mary-Clare Megibben is just that, a defensive stopper.

    During Collins 55-33 drubbing of Ballard on Dec. 16, Megibben blocked her 27th shot of the season, shattering the team’s former record of 26, set by former Titan Aaliyah Wells in 2010.

  • Rockets drop close one to...

    Both Shelby County and Carroll County’s boys’ basketball teams were red-hot from the field in Thursday’s third-place game in the Mike Miller Classic at Spencer County High School.

    The Rockets’ (1-8) shot 47 percent from the field as a team and got solid performances from Tyler Drane, T.J. Robinson, and Trey Stalnaker, but it still wasn’t enough as the Shelby County dropped it’s eighth game in nine tries 67-61.

  • Titans win Warren East tourney

    Thanks to the scoring ability of its two senior forwards, the Collins boys’ basketball team can now add a tournament title to its resume.

    Charlie Cochran and Dominique Turner paced the Titans offense in a 74-55 rout of Warren East on the Raiders (6-2) home floor in the Holiday Hoops Classic on Wednesday.

    “We came out and played excellent defense, and we had a hot start on offense,” Collins coach Chris Gaither said. “We got up in the first quarter and kept that lead up throughout the game.”

  • South Oldham drills Shelby, 77-60

    Despite shooting 51 percent from the field against South Oldham on Tuesday night at Spencer County High School, the Shelby County boys’ basketball team could not find a way to fend off the Dragons (9-0), falling 77-60.

    South Oldham also shot at a 51 percent clip for the game, and drained 13 three-pointers to send the Rockets (1-7) home with a seventh loss in the last eight games.

  • Collins falls just short of...

    Missed opportunities in the paint hurt the Collins girls’ basketball team in its Warren East Holiday Hoops championship game against Glasgow.

    The team had trouble finishing at the rim against the impressive size of the Scotties (9-2), falling 51-41 to earn second-place at the tournament.

  • Titans win opener at Warren East...

    The Collins High School girls’ basketball team turned to its bench for a 9-point win in the opening round of the Warren East Holiday Hoops Classic Monday afternoon.

    Guard Jeian Hayes and forward Mary-Clare Megibben each had serious impacts as reserves on both ends of the floor in the Titans’ 53-44 win over Cumberland County.

    Hayes led the team with 19 points, including an 11-point first half on 3-4 shooting.

  • Shelby County picks up first win...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team finally overcame its six-game losing streak on Monday night, routing North Bullitt 67-43 in the opening round of the Mike Miller Classic at Spencer County High School.

    The Rockets (1-6) offense was more efficient than it had been up to this point in the season, getting easy buckets in the paint to open up outside shots.

  • Collins wins nail-biter over...

    The play of Collins’ freshman point guard was the difference in its 78-75 win over Adair County on Monday afternoon in the opening round of the Warren East Holiday Hoops Classic.

    Dayvion McKnight, just a freshman, took control of the game late and set up the game winner.

    “We just had guys make plays,” Collins coach Chris Gaither said. “Dayvion had some plays called for him at the end. He drove and kicked to Charlie [Cochran] in a big spot and [Cochran] picked up the basket and-one.”
