  • Hello, Shelby County, it's...

    Hello, Shelby County, it’s nice to meet you.

    Sorry it has taken me so long to introduce myself, but you know how it is when you start a new job. It takes a little while to get adjusted to things. You spend most of your time early on just trying to keep your head above water.

    I’ve been around for about three weeks, so I’ve had a chance to meet some of you, but obviously not all of you, so let this be my formal introduction to you all.

  • Collins could be district champ...

    This morning the Collins High School football team may, or may not, be an outright district champion.

    If nothing else the postseason picture will be a little clear for the Titans today.

    Collins, which has its open date this week, has clinched at least a share of the Class AAAA, Region 1, District 4 title. The Titans have completed their district schedule with a 4-1 record, which puts them a half-game ahead of Marion County and North Bullitt heading into Thursday night’s showdown between those two teams.

  • EARLIER: 30th District...

    NEW CASTLE – Shelby County swept past Henry County on Monday night and into the 8th Region volleyball tournament.

    The Rockets defeated the host Wildcats, 2-0 (25-8, 25-22), in the 30th District Tournament and will play either rival Collins or Anderson County in the final tonight at 6.

    Anderson County defeated Eminence, 2-1, in Monday’s other game, and top-seeded Collins had a bye and played Anderson on Tuesday night.

  • District soccer: Collins falls 2...

    TAYLORSVILLE – The Collins High School boys soccer team came within 29 minutes of easily the biggest victory in the program’s very brief history Tuesday night.

  • SCHS at Southern: Rockets ready...

    The Shelby County High School football team is one of two winless teams in Class AAAA this season.

    However this week, in preparation for tonight’s game at Southern, Rockets Coach Todd Shipley wanted his team to feel like it is one of the three unbeaten teams.

  • Rockets, Titans knocked out of...

     

     

     

    Tuesday night was a tough one for both Shelby County high schools in the Eighth Region Tournament.

    First the Rockets lost to host, and 18th-ranked Oldham County 25-7, 25-17 in the first first-round match of the night.

    “Our season goal was to make it to the regional tournament, so I have to say I am proud of that,” Shelby Coach Felicia Pace said.

    Then, in the last match of the night, No. 25 South Oldham swept Collins 25-13, 25-23.

  • It's official: Shelby...

    The Shelby County High School football team is moving on up, while Collins is staying put.

    That became official Monday when the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Board of Control approved the previously announced football realignment plan for the 2011-14 seasons.

    The Rockets, currently in Class AAAA, are moving up to 5A. Beginning next year they’ll play in four-team District 4 against the three Bullitt County high schools - Bullitt Central, Bullitt East and North Bullitt.

  • EARLIER: Volleyball: Seniors...

    Last year Akia Jones, Leanna Armstrong, Heather Luce and Kassie Bruner helped Shelby County High School reach the Eighth Region Volleyball Tournament semifinals.

    Those four seniors were back in the Eighth Region tourney, which began Tuesday night at Oldham County, but not all together.

    This season they were all integral parts of their teams’ successes: Jones as an outside hitter for the Rockets, while the other three were valuable parts of Collins’ first team.
