  • Victory comes early for the...

    NEW CASTLE – It took until the 17th game, and the first week of February, before the Shelby County girls’ basketball team won its first game of last season.

    This season the Rockets didn’t have to wait nearly as long.

    Tuesday night Shelby County beat host Henry County, 44-35, in the Rockets’ second game of the season.

    “I’m really proud of the girls,” Shelby County Coach Mike Sowers said.

  • Titans’ sterling comeback...

    GOSHEN – First-year Collins boys’ basketball coach Chris Gaither was unhappy with his team’s 48-45 loss at North Oldham on Saturday night, but he wasn’t upset by it.

    “I thought tonight was our best game,” Gaither said afterward. “Our guys battled. We were down, [but] we came back on the defensive end and turned them over. Tonight was the hardest our kids have fought all year.” 

  • Collins, SCHS swimmers do well...

    The Collins boys’ and girls’ swim teams both took third-place and the Shelby County boys’ and girls’ squads finished fourth in the Holiday Classic Relays this past Saturday in the Family Activity Center at Clear Creek Park.

    North Oldham won both 6-team competitions, tallying 328 points on the girls’ side and 324 on the boys’ side.

    In the girls’ competition the Titans edged the Rockets by two points (238 to 236), and among the boys Collins outscored Shelby, 230-218.

  • Titans go to Wells over &...

    The Collins girls’ basketball team got a big offensive game from Aaliyah Wells and another dominating defensive effort Monday night.

    Wells scored 28 points, and the Titans tallied 15 steals – nine by Leeara Cardwell – and forced 19 turnovers on their way to a 47-27 victory over visiting Spencer County.

    Wells, a junior forward, hit 12 of 18 shots from the field and 4 for 6 from the free-throw line. She also snared seven rebounds and had three steals as Collins (3-0) improved to 2-0 in the 30th District.

  • Titans’ big start is the...

    Collins girls’ basketball coach Phillip Conder couldn’t have asked for a better start for his team Friday night.

    And although he would’ve liked a better finish, he wasn’t complaining after his Titans topped host Shelby County, 51-18, in Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Buoyed by its full-court press Collins scored the first eight points – and 16 of the first 18 – on its way to a 20-4 lead at the end of the first quarter, a 28-point halftime advantage and a 33-point victory.

  • Rockets surprise early but...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team gave Collins all it wanted - and then some - for the first 25 minutes of their match-up Friday night.

    The Titans, though, dominated the final 23 minutes, taking advantage of their height inside, as they beat the Rockets, 82-65, at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    After Shelby County took a 7-point lead – its largest of the game – early in the second half, Collins outscored the Rockets, 28-2, during the next 7½ minutes.

  • Some cool visits in the winter

    The Short-Eared Owl has always been a winter resident of Kentucky, but beginning in the late 1980s, this species was found nesting on a large reclaimed mine site in Ohio and Muhlenberg Counties.

    This 15-inch long bird, with a 38-inch wingspan, often can be observed in a Central Kentucky on open land at dusk and dawn and is our most aerial owl. You will notice them flying back and forth, hunting over pastures, hayfields and other grassy or weedy areas and have a habit of hovering.

  • Collins sweeps basketball...

    The Collins basketball teams swept a girl-boy doubleheader from cross-town rival Shelby County on Friday night at Mike Casey Gymnasium.  

    The Titans girls' team topped the Rockets 51-18 behind 16 points from junior forward Aaliyah Wells.

    Meanwhile the Collins boys' squad rallied back from a 1-point halftime deficit to beat Shelby County 82-65.

    Junior forward Dez Marshall led the Titans with 22 points, while senior center Brian Stone added 20.

  • Colonels are still the king of...

    Oldham County should be the 8th Region favorite considering the Colonels return two players, probably their top two, from a team that shelled Spencer County by 20 points (70-50) in last year’s regional final before losing to George Rogers Clark in the first round of the Sweet Sixteen. Oldham’s biggest competition could come from county-rival, North Oldham and its standout senior center Devon Rowan, or Collins, which beat the Colonels during the summer.

  • Pair of SCHS students shooting...

    It’s a rarity that a high school has one student try out for an Olympic team in any sport, much less two, but that’s exactly what Shelby County will have this weekend.

    Senior Connor Davis and junior Heather Kirby, who are members of the Rifle Rockets, will compete in the United States Olympic Team Trials for the air rifle and air pistol today through Sunday at the CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program) Marksmanship Center – South in Anniston, Ala.
