  • Titans deflect their way into...

    BUCKNER – This time of year, goals aren’t judged on beauty. They are simply counted.

    And Collins boys’ soccer coach Scott Cress couldn’t have been happier about that fact Tuesday night after his Titans knocked off, and knocked out, 20th-ranked South Oldham, 1-0, in the 16th District semifinals at Oldham County.

  • Close loss provides big push for...

    If last Friday night’s 1-point loss at North Bullitt wasn’t a moral victory for the Shelby County football team, it was at least a morale victory.

    One week after losing to their cross-town rival Collins, 39-0, the Rockets pushed the Eagles, the preseason favorite in Class 5A, District 4, to the brink before falling, 14-13.

  • Struggling Waggener next in...

    The Collins football team took a giant step toward winning the Class 4A, District 3 title with last week’s victory over previously unbeaten North Oldham.

    However Titans Coach Jerry Lucas doesn’t want his team to have a misstep tonight against a Waggener team that has won only two games.

  • Titans bounce to title in rubber...

    It was all about the middlemen, or in this case middlewomen, Wednesday night for the Collins volleyball team.

    Led by their A&W middle hitters – senior Ashley Williams and junior Aaliyah Wells – the Titans topped cross-town rival Shelby County, 25-22, 25-17, in the 30th District final, the third meeting between the two this season, at the Rockets’ Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Williams had five kills and Wells nine a day after she turned 17.

  • Shelby County finishes 4th

    BOWLING GREEN – The Shelby County girls’ golf team had some frustrating moments individually at the 2011 Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA State Championships, but collectively it turned out well for the Rockets.

    Shelby County finished fourth in the two-day event at the Bowling Green Country Club– its second-best state finish. The Rockets carded a collective 694 (118-over-par) thanks to a 348 in Friday’s first round and a 346 in Saturday’s final round.

  • Nakatani's kick lifts...

    Collins football coach Jerry Lucas was out-numbered.

    With the Titans trailing unbeaten North Oldham by one point, and facing a fourth-and-1 at the Mustangs’ 8-yard line late in Friday night’s de facto Class 4A, District 3 championship game, Lucas called a timeout to consult with his assistant coaches.

    He presented them with two options – 1. Try a field goal or 2. Go for the first down and eventually a touchdown.

  • Rockets let one slip away...

    For the Shelby County football team Friday night was all about the PTGA – points that got away.

    The Rockets built an early 13-0 lead at North Bullitt, generally considered the preseason favorite in Class 5A, District 4, but couldn’t hold on as the Eagles rallied for a 14-13 victory at C.T. Collins Field.

  • Karas sisters finish 1,2 but...

    It was only fitting that Collins’ sister act of Gabby and Caterina Karas took the top two spots in Saturday’s inaugural Titan Classic.

    Gabby Karas, a seventh-grader, won the race while her older sister, senior Caterina, finished second to lead the Collins girls’ cross country team to a second-place finish in the event that was held at Shelby County’s course (the same one that will be used for the Nov. 5 Class 2A, Region 3 meet). 

  • Mustangs rout Rockets

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team’s season of improvement came to an end Monday night.

    The Rockets fell to North Oldham, 9-0, in the first round of the 16th District Tournament at Oldham County.

    Shelby County finished the season with a 6-12-1 record – four victories more than the Rockets had last season.

  • SCHS volleyball wins finale

    The Shelby County volleyball team had to work a little extra, but the Rockets beat host Scott County, 25-16, 33-31, to spoil the Cardinals’ Senior Night Thursday in Georgetown.

    “The girls had a fabulous end to their regular season,” Shelby County Coach Felicia Pace said. “It was quite an exciting match-up, and I hadn't seen the girls play so confidently and with such power all season.”
