  • Flyers roll past Rockets at...

    The Shelby County High School boys’ golf team welcomed Franklin County to Weissinger Golf Course on Monday afternoon, but the Rockets home course wasn’t very hospitable.

    Facing tough fall conditions, Shelby County fell 152-191 to the visiting Flyers.

    “My thoughts on the match is that we took a step back today,” SCHS coach Casey Page said. “But we dealt with harsh conditions. Weissinger had just aerated the greens which makes them extremely tough to putt on, which is one of our strengths.”

  • SCHS welcomes 2nd Hall of Fame...

    On Saturday night, Shelby County High School welcomed its second class into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

    Numerous former athletes and Shelby County alumni attended the event.

  • Titans hang with No.1-ranked,...

    Despite falling 4-0 to the visiting St. Xavier Tigers, the Collins boys’ soccer team showed that it can hang with the state’s best.

    “Obviously with them being the top team in the state, they have so many weapons,” Collins coach Jamil Shalash said. “They are solid from top to bottom. We were putting some great stuff together, we just couldn’t hold them long enough.”

  • Rockets look to defeat North...

    Coming off of decisive victories over Oldham and Grayson counties, the Shelby County Rockets will look to win a third straight against North Bullitt tonight at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    The highlight of the last two wins for the Rockets has been a much-improved defensive front. After allowing Garrard County to rush for more than 400 yards in the season opener, Shelby’s front-seven has buckled down and ground out its opponents.

    “We’re concentrated on playing assignment football,” Rockets coach Todd Shipley said.

  • Titans get back-to-back wins...

    In its last two contests, the Collins’ volleyball team has defeated the 14th and 16th ranked teams in the state of Kentucky.

    “Both [Kentucky Country Day] and South Oldham were off to strong starts this year,” coach Cary Clark said. “The rankings are from MaxPreps, and go off of strength of schedule and win-loss record.”

    The Titans took a three-match winning streak on the road to Louisville on Wednesday to take on Kentucky Country Day where a tight contest turned into a 2-1 win for the Titans.

  • Bearcats slip past Rockets in OT

    Despite holding Anderson County scoreless for over 80 minutes, the Shelby County girls’ soccer team could not pick up the win on Wednesday night.

    Neither team was able to get much working offensively, as halftime and regulation passed with a scoreless tie still intact.

    But three minutes and forty-four seconds into the overtime period, the deadlock finally broke. Anderson County’s Anna Foley beat Shelby’s keeper to put in the only goal of the contest, and handed the Bearcats the 1-0 victory.

  • Anderson races past Rockets

    A tie game tilted against the Rockets in a late 5-2 loss to Anderson County Tuesday.

    Holding on to a 2-2 game with just 20 minutes left in the game, the Rockets shifted to a more attacking style.

    But that change ended up attacking the Rockets.

    The shift opened the floodgates for the Bearcats, who tacked on three goals in the final 15 minutes of the match.

  • Rockets hammer Oldham, 45-6

    Shelby County High School took advantage of a struggling Oldham County squad on Friday night, shellacking the Colonels for the 45-6 victory.

    “We’ve worked really hard over the past two weeks,” Rockets coach Todd Shipley said. “Our defense has been a lot better since the game against Garrard.”

    The Rockets drew first blood early in the contest, with running back Brandon Davis taking a toss sweep to the right side for a 26-yard touchdown run on fourth down to go up 7-0 over OC.

  • Titans rally to clip Eagles in...

    The Collins football team may need to change its mascot to a doctor with a defibrillator to revive it’s fans and coaches after consecutive last second wins.

    For the second week in a row, the Titans team clinched a victory during the final minute of regulation.

    With 18 seconds remaining, quarterback J.R. Lucas found Dalton Maggard in the end zone to take a 26-21 lead over Eastern. After converting the two-point conversion on the next play, the Titans led 28-21, and had locked up its third win of the season.
