  • Pounding victory, rousing rally...

    The Shelby County baseball team ended spring break week with a successful trip down South.
    The Rockets (10-6) won a pair of games – beating Gatlinburg-Pittman (Tenn.), 12-2, and Anderson County (Tenn.), 11-9 – and also got to meet one of their all-time greats.

    “We had a couple of goals of the Tennessee trip,” Shelby County Coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger said. “One, [we] wanted to improve team unity, two [we] wanted to play good baseball, three [we] wanted to have fun. Mission accomplished.”

  • Titans run streak to 7

    The hits, and victories, kept on coming for the Collins baseball team.

    The Titans (14-3) finished up their spring break week with triumphs over Henry County and Scott County, 8-3 and 11-1, respectively, then picked up on Monday where they left off with a 9-0 shellacking of Simon Kenton – their seventh consecutive victory.

    COLLINS 8, HENRY COUNTY 3: The Titans rallied from an early 3-0 deficit to beat the Wildcats (3-7) for the second time this season last Thursday.

  • Titans start new 'season...

    LAWRENCEBURG - The Collins softball team began its “second” season in dramatic fashion.

    The visiting Titans tallied two runs in the top of the eighth inning to beat Anderson County 4-2 Monday evening in their 30th District opener.

    Collins came in having lost four straight games – the last three over the weekend in the Capital City Showcase in Frankfort – and five of its previous six, but the Titans bounced back against the Bearcats.

  • Stone to Malone is now official

    Collins senior Brian Stone officially signed to join the men’s basketball team at Malone (Ohio) University on Wednesday, the first day of the regular signing period for NCAA Division II schools.

    Stone, a 6-foot-8 center, emerged this season for the Titans after missing some of his junior season with a leg injury. A left-handed inside player, he averaged about 14 points and 8 rebounds per game while shooting 76-percent from the field. Collins (24-11) was the 8th Region runner-up.

    Stone was joined by four others in signing with Malone.

  • Rockets hang tough on road...

    The Shelby County baseball team hung with the defending state champs but couldn’t overcome them, Tuesday night.

    The Rockets fell behind eighth-ranked Central Hardin early but stayed within striking distance throughout their 5-1 loss to the Bruins in Cecilia.

    “It was a lot closer than that,” Shelby County Coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger said.

    Central Hardin (10-4) scored single runs in the first, fourth and fifth innings, then tallied two for insurance in the sixth.

  • It's time to hit the golf...

    Even if it hasn’t always been evident this week, spring is here, and that means one thing – more and more people will start hitting the golf course.

    So with that in mind here’s a look at all five of the golf courses here in Shelby County, and what they have to offer this year.


    Cardinal Club

    Chris Hamburger, the PGA director of golf at Cardinal Club who was named the PGA Professional of the Month in February, reports that the Cardinal Club is hosting two big events this year.

  • Court goes for record 3rd...

    Saturday evening Jon Court will try to go boldly where no jockey has gone before in the Arkansas Derby – to the winner’s circle three years in a row.

    Court has ridden the last two Derby winners at Oaklawn Park. In 2010 he guided Line of David to victory, then last year he did the same aboard Archarcharch.

  • Collins rebounds, wins 2 in...

    The Butler Bears (5-3) went on a 5-0 spree – scoring four in the fourth inning – to beat host Collins (7-3) this past Thursday night, part of a 3-1 week for the Titans.

    “We played okay for the most part against Butler,” said Collins Coach Roy Bailey, whose team scored single runs in the first, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh innings. “We just had one bad inning that really hurt us. We can't afford that against a good team.”

  • Noonan’s dinger gives Shelby the...

    LOUISVILLE – Kody Noonan couldn’t have picked a better moment to hit the first home run of the season for the Shelby County baseball team.

    His three-run homer in the top of the seventh inning propelled the Rockets to a 6-5 victory over host Fairdale on Monday afternoon.

    “It couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Noonan, who went 3-for-4 with five RBIs.

  • Spring break doesn’t snap Titans...

    While the rest of the Collins student body is on spring vacation, the school’s baseball team is having a stay-cation.

    Collins is playing five games this week, including four at home. The Titans won the first of those home games Tuesday afternoon, beating Elizabethtown 5-2 less than 24 hours after blanking host Meade County, 6-0, Monday night on the strength of junior Austin Perry’s no-hitter.
