  • A victory too good to pass up

    Showing off its new-found penchant for passing, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team proved victories aren’t just a passing fancy for the Rockets anymore.

    Playing some of its best, and most unselfish, basketball of the season Shelby County annihilated Iroquois, 63-30, Tuesday night at Mike Casey Gymnasium to triple its victory total from last season. 

  • Cornerstone honoring ’95 title...

    The Cornerstone Christian boys’ basketball team, which celebrated some success last weekend, will celebrate one of its best teams tonight.

    During tonight’s Homecoming festivities, Cornerstone will honor its first Kentucky Christian Athletic Association championship team (the 1994-95 squad, when the school was known as Living Waters) around 7 o’clock before its varsity game against Glasgow Christian.

    The Bulldogs are coming off a third-place finish in last weekend’s KCAA All “A” State Tournament.

  • A night of personal reflection...

    Wednesday night was one to celebrate the seniors on both the Collins and Shelby County swim teams.

    It was an evening to reminisce about the past and look forward to the future while also paying tribute to the present.

    “I have memories from when I started swimming in the eighth grade,” Shelby County senior Jordan Lohr said. “I was in the five hundred freestyle in the eighth grade, and back then I couldn’t do it. After I got done, I just got out of the pool and fell down.”

  • Wowzer Mouser: 5-of-6 3-pointers...

    After Collins girls’ basketball practice last Wednesday, senior forward Becca Mouser put up 100 3-point shots.

    Two days later that extra practice appeared to pay big dividends. 

    Mouser made 5 of 6 3-pointers on her way to a game-high 21 points to lead the Titans to a 50-30 victory over crosstown rival Shelby County this past Friday night.

    “Becca shot the ball lights out,” Collins Coach Phillip Conder said.

  • Sharks swim to good times

    Sixteen Shelby Sharks swam well during the weekend in the Carmel (Ind.) Swim Club’s 2012 Dollar/Thrifty Winter Invitational at the IUPUI Natatorium in Indianapolis.

  • Titans overcome revved-up...

    Collins boys’ basketball coach Chris Gaither’s objectives for his team entering Friday night’s showdown with crosstown rival Shelby County were fairly simple.

    “Our first three goals were – we get Brian Stone the ball,” Gaither said. “Our second three goals were – we get Dez Marshall the ball. Our third three goals were – to take care of the ball until we can pass the ball to Brian Stone or Dez Marshall.”
