  • Collins routs Shelby County

    With eight minutes left in the first quarter of Friday’s game between Collins and Shelby County boys’ basketball teams, the Rockets (0-5) took a two-point lead over the Titans (3-2).

    The basket would be the last time SCHS led in a 63-39 loss at rival Collins.

    Collins grabbed the lead after that point and pushed it up to 25 points in the Titans’ win over the Rockets.

    Shelby’s shooting woes continued following the first quarter, and the team made just 31 percent of its attempts during the entire game.

  • Court hits 4,000 wins

    Shelbyville-resident Jon Court has been riding horses competitively for nearly four decades, and now has 4,000 wins as a jockey to show for it.

    Court hit the milestone on Dec. 3, while riding City Without Pity at Turfway Park in Florence.

    The 56-year-old jockey saw his win coming from a long way off during the race, as his horse won by eight-and-three-quarters lengths.

  • Titans add 2 more wins

    The Collins girls’ basketball team may have had a rocky beginning to its season, but the girls are hitting their stride now.

    The Titans (3-4) defeated Western Hills (5-2) 63-52 on Monday night, extending the team’s winning streak to three.

    “We’re just growing up,” Collins coach Sean Pigman said. “The kids never waivered in their belief. They’re working hard, but we’re still growing.”

  • Bulldogs nip Titans

    Both Collins and John Hardin’s boys’ basketball teams struggled with shooting effectively on Saturday night, but it was the Bulldogs (3-0) that found the lead, 55-48, when the final buzzer sounded.

    The Titans (3-2) may have drained six three-pointers the night before in a win over Shelby County, but Collins shooting went cold on Saturday, making just 20 percent of its attempts from behind the arc.

  • Danner steps down as Rocket XC...

    While the Shelby County boys’ cross country team will have to deal with the losses of several athletes to graduation, the team just got word of an even bigger hole to fill going forward: its head coaching position.

    In a statement on Facebook Friday night, SCHS coach Andrew Danner says he is stepping down from the position to take a teaching job at Moore High School in Louisville.

  • Rockets fall short of visiting...

    The Shelby County High School boys’ basketball team dropped its fourth straight to open the 2016-17 season, falling 56-42 to Christian Academy-Louisville.

    The Rockets (0-4) got off to a slow start on both sides of the ball, scoring just eight points in the first quarter and nine points in the second.

    CAL (1-1) had no trouble getting points at the basket, and the Centurions held a 32-17 lead at the conclusion of the first half.

  • Anderson edges past Collins

    Despite holding a 28-23 lead over Anderson County at the half on Tuesday night, the Collins High School girls’ basketball team could not come away with its first victory of the season.

    A 23-point performance by freshman guard Olivia Federle was not enough to avoid a winless start to the year for the Titans (0-4).

  • Collins picks up win at Franklin...

    The Collins High School boys’ basketball team is now on a two-game winning streak after going on the road and defeating Franklin County 70-54 on Tuesday night.

    The Titans’ (2-1) disruptions on the defensive end of the floor led to some confusion for the Flyers (2-1), as Franklin struggled to establish offensive consistency.

    “We created 19 deflections and 18 steals for the game,” Collins coach Chris Gaither said. “Our length can really bother people if we use our feet to stay in front and have active hands.”

  • Assumption defeats Shelby in low...

    Offense came at a premium when Shelby County girls’ basketball traveled to Louisville to take on Assumption on Tuesday night, as the two teams combined for just 63 points.

    The contest was a defensive struggle with the two teams shooting low percentages due to some excellent defensive efforts.

    “Defensively, we were really good,” SCHS coach Jason Holland said. “We forced 27 turnovers and held them to 24 percent shooting.”

  • Shelby girls earn 2nd win of...

    Led by Zephy Gray, Asia Hardy, and Zoey Holland, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team earned its second win of the season in a 59-50 victory over Williamstown (1-2) on Saturday.

    Adjustments out of the half paved the way for the Rockets, according to head coach Jason Holland.

    “We really played well in the third quarter,” the coach said. “We got what we wanted on offense, and executed well on defense.”
