  • Page, Dugle make it look easy

    Sophomore quarterback Lawson Page continued his breakthrough season, and senior running back Darian Dugle had his breakout game for the Collins football team Friday night.

    Page accounted for the Titans’ first six touchdowns – with four TD passes and two short scoring runs – and Dugle had 218 yards of offense (97 rushing, 121 receiving) and two touchdowns to lead Collins to a 56-0 victory at winless Atherton in its Class 4A, District 3 finale.

  • Rockets wake up (at halftime)...

    A season of mostly frustration was forgotten for a half Friday night.

    The Shelby County football team blitzed visiting Bullitt East, 29-0, in the second half on its way to a 32-13 victory in the Class 5A, District 4 finale for both.

    “I’m just excited, mostly for the kids,” said Rockets Coach Todd Shipley, whose team ended a four-game losing streak despite having trailed, 13-3, at halftime. “They work and work and work, it’s good to see the fruits of their labor.”

  • Webb, Byrnside lead SCHS girls

    LOUISVILLE – Taylor Webb’s hip and Kayce Byrnside’s legs showed no ill effects Saturday. 

    The Shelby County duo placed second and fourth, respectively, in the surprisingly small field at the 19th DeSales Invitational at McNeely Lake Park.

    Webb covered the 5,000-meter course in 21 minutes, and Byrnside was just 1:17 behind in the 19-runner meet.

    Webb and Byrnside were the only runners for the Rockets, who were short-handed because of illness, injury and the ACT.

  • Collins’ cross-country teams do...

    The Collins boys’ cross-country team finished third and the girls’ team was fifth Saturday in the Henry County Invitational.

    On the boys’ side the Titans were led by junior Devon Fielding, who covered the 5.000-meter course at Renaissance Park in Eminence in 17 minutes, 3.91 seconds. Oldham County senior Luke Weishaar won the race in 16:00.15.

    North Oldham, which had finishers 2-4, won the event with 24 points, and Oldham was second with 51, with Collins third with 86.

  • Tough finale for Titans

    When Collins football coach Jerry Lucas saw that his team would be playing Waggener and Atherton, two teams who combined to go 1-20 in 2010, in back-to-back weeks late in the season, he said he knew he had to make his final regular-season game a tough one.

    So, in order to get the Titans ready for the postseason, Lucas finished up his schedule with Bryan Station, whom Collins (7-2) will play host to at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Robert Doyle Stadium.

  • Finchville’s Burnett wins Pan Am...

    Shelby County native Hannah Burnett may have to stop at customs on her way back from Guadalajara, Mexico.

    Burnett, 25, who now hails from The Plains, Va., helped the U.S. win gold during Pan American Games team eventing competition and then took her own silver in the individual eventing competition on Sunday.

  • Shelby County beats Bullitt East...

    The Shelby County football team picked up its second victory of the season, and its first in Class 5A, District 4, Friday night.

    The Rockets rolled over visiting Bullitt East 32-13 at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    Shelby County (2-7, 1-2) trailed 13-3 at halftime, but outscored the Chargers 29-0 in the second half - including 22-0 in the fourth quarter.

    All four of the Rockets' second-half scores were from 36 yards or more.

  • Cross country season enters...

    With most of the other high school sports already in their respective postseasons, cross country begins to enter the home stretch before the regionals on the first weekend of November and the state championships the following weekend.

    Saturday both county schools will be competing in separate meets. Collins will collectively run in the Henry County Invitational at Renaissance Park in Eminence. Henry, Oldham and Trimble counties are among the teams expected to attend.

  • Rockets can mess up playoff...

    One of the things recently deceased Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis was best known for was his motto: “Just win, baby.”

    In recent weeks Shelby County football coach Todd Shipley has had a similar message for his running backs. His slogan has been “just run.” 

  • Titans look to improve against...

    With the Class 4A, District 3 title already wrapped up, Collins football coach Jerry Lucas has one major goal for his team tonight.

    No, it’s not to score 100 points against Atherton – although given the fact that earlier this season the Rebels lost by 40 points to Waggener, who lost by 55 points to the Titans last Friday night, it may not be too far-fetched.

    Lucas’ goal for his team in its district finale is to continue to improve.
