  • Titans look to improve against...

    With the Class 4A, District 3 title already wrapped up, Collins football coach Jerry Lucas has one major goal for his team tonight.

    No, it’s not to score 100 points against Atherton – although given the fact that earlier this season the Rebels lost by 40 points to Waggener, who lost by 55 points to the Titans last Friday night, it may not be too far-fetched.

    Lucas’ goal for his team in its district finale is to continue to improve.

  • Hawkins' injury disrupts...

    HEBRON ESTATES – Shelby County’s Caty Hawkins missed much of the Rockets’ first volleyball match against North Oldham.

    As it turned out Hawkins, a senior setter/outside hitter, missed all of the second, a 25-12, 25-7 Mustangs’ victory Tuesday night in the 8th Region semifinals at North Bullitt.

    Hawkins sprained an ankle in the first meeting, a 25-11, 25-12 victory by North Oldham on Aug. 18. Then, she sat out the second meeting after tweaking a hamstring in the Rockets’ first region victory in two years.

  • Rockets slip on middle ground

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Shelby County had a decent start and a solid finish to its football game Friday night at Bullitt Central.

    Unfortunately for the Rockets it was the middle that got them.

    The host Cougars scored 28 consecutive points, from late in the first period until late in the third period, on their way to a 35-21 Class 5A, District 4 victory.

    Once again Shelby County’s biggest foe was itself. The Rockets (1-7, 0-2) had four turnovers and were penalized nine times for 77 yards in their fourth consecutive loss.

  • One and done again for Titans

    HEBRON ESTATES – Collins volleyball coach Abbey Buchert said she thought her team would need to play perfectly, or pretty close to it, to beat Oldham County in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament.

    As it turned out one team did play almost impeccably, however it wasn’t the one she’d hoped.

    The Colonels took out the Titans, 25-11, 25-16, Monday night at North Bullitt.

  • Rockets rout Bearcats

    Monday night was a big night for the Shelby County volleyball program.

    The Rockets recorded their first 8th Region Tournament victory since the “split” as Shelby County swept Walton-Verona, 25-15, 25-21, at North Bullitt.

    “We got a big win,” said Shelby County Coach Felicia Pace, whose team played 14th-ranked North Oldham in Tuesday evening’s semifinals. “It’s exciting…it’s a real nice feeling to advance past the first round.”

  • Plays all big as Titans’ roll

    Plays were at a premium, but points were aplenty for the Collins football team’s offense Friday night.

    The Titans ran only 23 plays ­­­­– including a mere two (yes two!) in the second half – in their 58-3 victory over visiting Waggener in a Class 4A, District 3 game at Shelby County’s Robert Doyle Stadium.

  • Bruins’ goals are Scearce

    LOUISVILLE – Ballard’s Jacob Scearce is considered by some to be the best boys’ soccer player in Kentucky, and Monday night he showed Collins why.

    Scearce, a senior forward, scored one goal and assisted two others to lead the host and sixth-ranked Bruins to a 3-2 victory over the Titans in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament.

    “He did his job, and he did it well,” said Collins Coach Scott Cress, who did stop short of calling Scearce the best player in the state.

  • Titans’ Gabby Karas wins another...

    Collins seventh-grader Gabby Karas continued her superb season by winning Saturday’s Dragon Invitational.

    Karas covered the 5,000-meter course at Oldham County in 18 minutes, 1.65 seconds – the fastest 5K time in the state so far this season according to ky.milesplit.com – to win the event hosted by South Oldham.

  • Ill wind doesn’t blow Titans’ way

    BUCKNER – Thanks to a pair of assists from Mother Nature, the Oldham County boys’ soccer team beat Collins in the 16th District final.

    Two wind-aided goals gave the host and 13th-ranked Colonels a 2-1 victory over the Titans on a blustery Saturday afternoon.

    The victory gave Oldham County its ninth district title in 10 years and its second triumph over the Titans (11-6-2 after the loss) this season. Both teams advanced to the 8th Region Tournament at Ballard.

  • Collins, Shelby County...

    The Collins and Shelby County volleyball teams both play Monday evening in the 8th Region Tournament at North Bullitt.

    The Rockets (12-9), the 30th District runners-up, play Walton-Verona (17-15), the 32nd District champ, at 6 p.m. Monday. Meanwhile the Titans (19-9), the winners of the 30th District, will take on Oldham County (28-7), the 31st District runner-up, at 7 p.m. The Colonels beat Collins 25-22, 25-17 on their homecourt Oct. 5.
