  • Soccerama events get the ball...

    The local girls’ soccer season warms up this weekend before it gets off to a full spring next week.

    Both Collins and Shelby County are hosting Socceramas on Saturday before they begin their regular seasons with matches on Monday and Wednesday.

     

    Collins returns plethora of players

    The Titans went 9-8-2 in their first season, falling to Spencer County, 5-3, in the first round of the 16th District Tournament. They graduated three starters off that team.

  • Collins, SCHS open season head-...

    The boys’ soccer season kicks off next week, and locally it begins Tuesday night with a showdown between Collins and Shelby County.

    The Titans beat the Rockets twice last year in their solid first season, which they’ll try to build on this time around. Meanwhile Shelby won only two matches last season, but the Rockets have a new coach and new hopes this season.

  • Titans take down Wildcats in...

    Collins volleyball coach Abbey Buchert wants her team to attack on every play this season.

    But even Buchert wasn’t crazy about senior Allison Henshaw’s attack from the back row during the first game of the Titans’ home-opener Tuesday against Henry County.

    With her team leading, 20-13, Henshaw got a free ball in the back with two choices – hit it safely over or attack. She chose the latter.

    “I said, ‘I’m going to cream this ball,’” the senior outside hitter recalled afterward.

  • Collins 2nd, SCHS 14th in Bath...

                               

     

    The Collins boys’ golf team finished second in the Bath County Invitational this past Thursday at Old Silo Golf Course. Shelby County, meanwhile, finished in 14th-place.  

    The Titans posted a team score of 319, 10 shots behind winner Mason County.

  • Local motorcycle dealer have...

    One local company has a rooting interest in America's Got Talent.

    Ryan Young Products, an import motorcycle business, is hoping The Smage Brothers – Pat and Phil – can win the big prize ($1 million and an opportunity to be a headlining act on the Las Vegas Strip) on the NBC show. The brother tandem, who perform motorcycle tricks, were one of 16 acts on the show heading into this week (the show airs at 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays).  

  • Rockets lose season-opener

    The Shelby County volleyball team was outsized, outnumbered and outscored in its season-opener, but the Rockets put up a fight Monday night.

    That’s why Coach Felicia Pace wasn’t displeased with her team’s 25-17, 25-22 loss to Nelson County at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

  • Webb’s big finish earns her a 72

    As Shelby County sophomore Jordan Webb made the turn at the Lady Rockets Golf Classic on Saturday, she was asked what she shot on the front nine.

    “Thirty-eight,” she responded, before smiling and adding, “not so hot, but not so bad.”

    Webb got hot on the back nine at Weissinger Hills, though, carding a 2-under-par 34 on her way to an even-par round of 72 to tie for second-place overall.

    “She really wanted a one-under,” Shelby County Coach Anna Simpson said.

  • Buchert wants the Titans to...

    The first Collins volleyball team set the bar high.

    Coach Abbey Buchert wants the Titans to raise it in their second season.

    Collins, which finished 22-3 in its inaugural season, recently won gold medals at the Bluegrass State Games and opens its season Monday night at Anderson County.

    “After the Bluegrass State Games and after seeing what we’re working with, I have high expectations for this season,” said Buchert, the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association Coach of the Year in the 8th Region last year. 

  • SCHS equals opening score

    The Shelby County girls’ golf team equaled its score from its first invitational of the season in its second.

    The Rockets carded a collective 428 Wednesday in the Owen County Invitational at Perry Park County Club to match the score they put up in Monday’s Henry County Invitational. 

    Sophomore Jordan Webb and freshman Madison Thomas led Shelby, and tied for eighth-place, with 5-over-par 77s.

    “They both played really well,” Coach Anna Simpson said.

  • Kessinger, Sell swim well at...

    Shelby Sharks Collin Kessinger and Sydney Sell did well this past weekend for the Kentucky team in the Southern Zone Age Group Swimming Championships in Cary, N.C.

    Kessinger won the 15-18-year-old 200-meter breaststroke (2 minutes, 41.74 seconds), and Sell won the Girls 13-14 200 backstroke (2:20.36).

    “Both girls improved their times, setting new team records in both events,” Sharks Coach Jeremiah Heath said.
