  • Shelby outlasts North Bullitt

    While Shelby County softball was set to play multiple games at the Capital City Showcase over the weekend, the Rockets only contest ended with a 7-4 win over North Bullitt.

    SCHS (6-6-1) was powered at the plate by second baseman Loran Trent, who collected three hits and two RBIs in four plate appearances Friday.

    Trent was also a part of a late rally that allowed the Rockets to power past the Eagles (3-12).

  • Collins scores late to top CAL

    With both teams tied at two runs apiece, Collins baseball’s Thursday contest against Christian Academy-Louisville turned on a late mistake by the Centurions.

    Catcher Zane Baker crossed home plate on a wild pitch by CAL thrower Luke Price that proved to be the winning run for the Titans (14-10).

    The game showed the base running prowess of Collins, as the Titans scored all three of its runs on wild pitches or stolen bases.

  • Rockets split Louisville games...

    Shelby County baseball’s Friday contest against DeSales ended in stark contrast from the high-scoring game the night before.

    While the Rockets (10-10-1) piled up 20 runs against Doss on Thursday, the Friday showdown against the Colts (10-10) was much more of a pitcher’s duel, with SCHS taking a 1-0 loss.

    DeSales plated its one and only run in the bottom of the fifth, scoring on a double.

  • Titans late rally stopped short

    While the first and last innings may have been successful ones for Collins softball, very little went right between.

    From the second until the sixth frames, Anderson scored nine of its 10 runs and halted a late Titans (15-6-1, 1-1 district) rally that came a bit too late in a 10-6 loss on Wednesday.

    Defeating Anderson County (9-6, 2-0 district) is as much of a mindset as it is actual performance, according to Collins’ head coach.

  • SCHS splits with Anderson

    SCHS closed its district-opening series on Tuesday night with a 7-3 home win over the visiting Bearcats.

    The offense was significantly more aggressive than it was the night before, racking up 13 hits and jumping on Anderson (8-6) early.

    Shelby’s biggest offensive inning came in the bottom of the third while up 1-0.

    The Rockets (9-9-1) tallied up a double and five singles in the frame to jump up 5-0 and put the pressure on the Bearcats to score.

  • Collins sweeps series with...

    A pair of top-notch pitching performances in as many days allowed Collins baseball to pick up its first district wins of the 2017 season.

    Cameron Mattingly’s outing capped off the sweep with a 6-2 victory on Tuesday night over Spencer.

    The junior pitcher took to the hill, going six full innings while allowing just four hits and an earned run while striking out five batters in his fourth win of the year.

  • J-Town outlasts Shelby in extras

    Shelby County softball’s Tuesday night matchup with Jeffersontown turned out to be more of an exercise in patience for both teams.

    Both the Rockets (5-6-1) and Chargers were knotted at six after seven innings of play, where it would take another two full innings to decide a winner.

    Shelby’s hitting cooled off after a fifth inning RBI by shortstop Hannah Webb brought the game to the 6-6 deadlock.

  • Oldham leads Collins past Shelby

    Starting pitcher Paige Oldham did a bit of everything for Collins softball to help top rival Shelby County on Saturday afternoon.

    Oldham led the team at the plate, with three hits and two RBIs, while tossing four-and-a-third innings, allowing the Titans to mount a comeback win over the Rockets.

    Down 3-1 after just one inning, Collins (14-4-1) added three runs of its own in the third, along with one final run in the fourth to close out SCHS (5-5-1) by a score of 5-4 and take its 14th win of the year.

  • Shelby halts rally for win over...

    Saturday’s matchup between Shelby County and Eastern came down to a bang-bang play in the final inning when Brandon Davis brought the game to an end.

    Eastern (8-9) was in the midst of a two-run, two-out rally in the top of the seventh inning when the Eagles’ base runner thought he should test Davis’ arm. And Davis passed with flying colors, gunning down the runner attempting to go from first to third. The outfield assist gave the Rockets (8-8-1) the 5-3 win.

  • Oldham, Butler trip up Titans

    The Titans ended a trio of weekend games with a loss at the hands of Oldham County on Saturday morning.

    The Colonels (9-8-1) peppered runs throughout each of the six innings en route to the 14-4 win while allowing the Titans (11-10) few opportunities to score.

    Despite the disparity in the final score, Collins was out hit by just a 10-8 margin. But a pair of big hits by Oldham put the game out of reach.
