  • 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.

  • Bullitt Central downs Shelby...

    The Shelby County football team fell to 0-2 in its new district Friday night.

    Host Bullitt Central beat the Rockets 35-21 in Class 5A, District 4 action in Shepherdsville.

    Freshman running back Trevor Carnell rushed for 149 yards and two touchdowns, while junior quarterback Bradley Combs passed for two TDs and rushed for another to lead the Cougars (3-6, 1-2) to the victory.

    Bullitt Central, which led 21-7 at halftime and 35-7 at the end of three quarters, rolled up 300 yards (185 rushing, 115 passing) of total offense. 

  • Collins may add girls’ lacrosse

    There is a movement to start a girls’ lacrosse club team at Collins High School.

    That was one of the items on the agenda for Thursday night’s Shelby County School Board meeting.

    “If board approves, we will begin to hire coach and get information out to have team in [the] spring,” Collins Athletic Director Gary Kidwell said.
