  • Bearcats' hot start...

    Friday night was a scorcher in Lawrenceburg, just ask the Shelby County football team.

    Host Anderson County burned the Rockets for 43 consecutive first-half points on its way to a 52-7 lead and a 58-20 victory in a game that was delayed a half hour at the start because of a heat index of more than 103 degrees.

  • Titans take new route to victory

    BUCKNER – It wasn’t your typical Jerry Lucas-called football game.

    But it wasn’t a bad thing for Collins.

  • Collins wins pair of volleyball...

    The Collins volleyball team won a pair of matches this week, defeating Franklin County on Tuesday night and Eminence on Wednesday.

    The host Titans beat the Flyers, 25-21, 20-25, 25-18. Collins, led by its seniors, won the decisive set after dropping the second. Senior outside hitter Allison Henshaw finished with four aces, 15 digs and one block, while classmate middle blocker Ashley Williams added 8 kills and 16 digs.

  • Shelby County Invitational...

    Saturday’s Shelby County cross country invitational could be a preview of the Class 2A, Region 3 meet, in more ways than one.

    Several of the top teams, and individuals, who’ll run at the Rockets’ course tomorrow morning will likely be back at the same site for the regional meet Nov. 5. The girls’ varsity race is set to begin at 9 a.m. Saturday with the boys’ varsity race to follow at 9:45 a.m.

  • Rockets want to take care of the...

    There were three major points of emphasis in Shelby County football practices this week.

    “Hold onto the football, one, hurry up and get out of the huddle on offense, two, and stay low on the offensive and defensive lines,” Rockets Coach Todd Shipley said.

    All three were key in Shelby County’s season-opening loss last Friday and should be again beginning at 7:30 p.m. tonight, when the Rockets play at old rival Anderson County.

  • Titans hope to cook up a formula...

    Last week was all about the Collins football team finding its fire.

    This week is all about fanning the flame of that fire.

    The Titans will try to do so at 8 p.m. tonight at Oldham County.

    “Oldham County has a good football team [and] our kids know they will have to play well to have a chance to win,” Collins Coach Jerry Lucas said. “However, we are mostly worried about us at this point in the season. Can we continue to improve on last week's effort and continue to get better each week?

  • Titans' Adams has Tayler-...

    Tayler Adams has been the poker-faced rock for the Collins boys’ golf team so far this season.

    Adams, a senior, has led the team in scoring, and by example.

    “He has been the leader and number one player since tryouts,” Collins Coach Mike Griffin said. “He’s been Mr. Steady this year.”

  • Karases show their stuff

    LOUISVILLE ­- The focus was on the future for the Collins girls’ cross-country team at Saturday’s Tiger Run.

    And it looked bright.

    Senior Caterina Karas, the defending Class 2A state champion, finished fifth in the girls’ race, and her younger sister, seventh-grader Gabby, took 10th for the Titans in her first 5,000-meter race.

    That dynamic duo helped Collins finish 12th overall and second among 2A teams, and the Titans’ boys’ team finished 17th, led by junior Devon Fielding.

  • Rockets show progress, but...

    HODGENVILLE – The Shelby County football team took some big steps toward putting 2010 behind it Friday night.

    Unfortunately for the Rockets, for nearly every five steps forward, they took one back.

    Shelby County, which led LaRue County, 17-7, late in the second quarter, was plagued by flags and fumbles as the Hawks rallied for a 27-24 victory.

    The Rockets, who ran 49 plays on offense, were penalized 11 times (including 10 on offense) and had four fumbles – including one lost one that proved crucial – in their season-opener.
