    BUCKNER – Shelby County gave itself a chance in the final inning, but an explosive fourth inning was all Oldham County needed to edge the Rockets 5-3 in regional play Wednesday.

    Shelby County held a 3-1 lead after scoring in each inning leading up to the fourth. That’s when Oldham County’s Haley Springer blasted a two-run home run over the center field wall to tie the game, then the Colonels pushed across two more runs on an error and a RBI double for the 5-3 lead.

  • Titans hammer Anderson, 13-3

    The Collins girls’ lacrosse team moved to 2-3 on the season with a dominating performance Monday against visiting Anderson County.

    The Titans raced out to an early lead and never looked back on the way to a 13-3 win.

    “It was a good win, I thought we played well,” coach David Boone said. “There are still some things we need to work on, but we’re improving.”

  • Rockets get clutch with pair of...

    Pitching and timely hitting carried the Rockets to a 5-4 win at Jeffersontown (2-2) Friday.

    “Pitching was the storyline on Friday,” SCHS coach Devin Hicks said. “Our guys did a great job. They threw a lot of strikes and got ahead in the county, just an all around good job.”

    Senior Spencer Shouse came in for the save in the seventh inning and after striking out the first batter, he hit the second batter, putting the tying run on first.

  • High school softball preview:...

    The Collins High School softball team got a taste of the region success last year, and now they want back.

    After leading 1-0 going into the 5th inning of the 8th Region championship against Anderson County, the Titans ended up falling and that left a bad taste in the team’s mouth.

    “We were two innings away from our goal,” said Collins coach Charlie LeCompte. “That’s the goal every year, win the district, win the region and get into the state tournament.”

  • High school softball preview:...

    After posting a 20-16 record last year, the Shelby County Rockets enter 2016 with high expectation and the talent to back it up.

    “I think we finally have more than one senior, and I’ve had these five girls [Victoria McGuire, Sydney Wright, Abby Willis, Savannah Smeaton and Jesse Vermillion] for seven years now. And a couple of them have been playing varsity since they were in seventh grade,” Shelby coach Kelly Cable said. “I think we have the core and leadership with this group to have a really good season.”
