  • Rockets, Titans knocked out of...

     

     

     

    Tuesday night was a tough one for both Shelby County high schools in the Eighth Region Tournament.

    First the Rockets lost to host, and 18th-ranked Oldham County 25-7, 25-17 in the first first-round match of the night.

    “Our season goal was to make it to the regional tournament, so I have to say I am proud of that,” Shelby Coach Felicia Pace said.

    Then, in the last match of the night, No. 25 South Oldham swept Collins 25-13, 25-23.

  • It's official: Shelby...

    The Shelby County High School football team is moving on up, while Collins is staying put.

    That became official Monday when the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Board of Control approved the previously announced football realignment plan for the 2011-14 seasons.

    The Rockets, currently in Class AAAA, are moving up to 5A. Beginning next year they’ll play in four-team District 4 against the three Bullitt County high schools - Bullitt Central, Bullitt East and North Bullitt.

  • EARLIER: Volleyball: Seniors...

    Last year Akia Jones, Leanna Armstrong, Heather Luce and Kassie Bruner helped Shelby County High School reach the Eighth Region Volleyball Tournament semifinals.

    Those four seniors were back in the Eighth Region tourney, which began Tuesday night at Oldham County, but not all together.

    This season they were all integral parts of their teams’ successes: Jones as an outside hitter for the Rockets, while the other three were valuable parts of Collins’ first team.

  • Collins open 8th Region tourney...

     

     

     

    The Collins High School volleyball team will face a stiff test to start off the Eighth Region Tournament.

    The Titans (22-2), the 30th District champ and only team with an unbeaten record in the region this season, open the tourney against 25th-ranked South Oldham (20-14) at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night at Oldham County.

    Meanwhile 30th District runner-up Shelby County (13-14) will face 18th-ranked Oldham County (30-9) in an earlier first-round match slated for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

  • Titans will try to tame the...

    Don’t be fooled by the record of the Fern Creek football team.

    The Tigers (3-4) are likely the most talented squad Collins will face this season, when the two teams meet at 7:30 tonight at Titans Stadium.

  • Cross country: Webb finishes...

    Taylor Webb continued her solid sophomore season for the Shelby County High School cross-country team Saturday.

     

    Webb finished third, to lead all local runners, in the South Oldham Dragon Invitational at Oldham County.

     

    Webb completed the 5,000-meter course in 19 minutes, 57.30 seconds. Oldham County junior Margaret Grogan won the race in 19:34.96.

     

  • EARLIER: District volleyball:...

    NEW CASTLE -- Collins captured the first hardware for the new high school’s trophy case Wednesday night.

    The Titans topped Shelby County, 25-17, 15-25, 25-18, in the 30th District final at Henry County High School to claim the school’s first postseason award.

  • Titans tame Tigers 34-14

     

     

     

    Fern Creek came into Friday night’s high school football game at Collins with a talented trio of seniors who are headed to the University of Louisville next year.

    However it was the Titans’ senior threesome of Brendan Cresap, Tavis Elzy and Ben Axline who stole the show in Collins’ 34-14 victory over the Tigers at Titans Stadium.

  • Big game, big crowd, big step

    Billed on T-shirts as the Hometown Showdown, the county was more than ready for the first SCHS vs. Collins football game.

    Cars lined Discovery Boulevard waiting to get into a jammed parking lot at Collins for about two hours.

    The scene outside the stadium was pure football ecstasy.

    The landscape would have easily fit in outside Commonwealth or Papa Johns Cardinal stadiums.

    The air smelled of not just burgers and brats, but barbeque and more exotic fare.

  • EARLIER: Becherer: He knows the...

    When talking about football in Shelby County, no name carries more weight than Tom Becherer.

    Now the defensive coordinator for Collins, Becherer has had a hand in every football program in the county's history.

    Becherer took over the Shelbyville High School program in 1972, and for three years he guided the Red Devils until the school merged with Shelby County High School in 1975.

    Then he took over as the head coach at Shelby County and just missed a trip to the state finals after a 10-1 in season his first year.
