  • North Bullitt edges Shelby...

    The Shelby County football team lost a heart-breaking district opener Friday night.

    The Rockets couldn’t hang on to an early 13-0 as host North Bullitt rallied for a 14-13 victory in Shelby’s first game in Class 5A, District 4 in Shepherdsville.

    Patrick Egnor’s two-point conversion pass to Ryan Collins – on the heels of Todd Asbury’s 20-yard touchdown run – with 4:48 to shot down the Rockets’ chances.

  • Shelby County girls finish 4th...

    The Shelby County girls' golf team finished fourth at the two-day KHSAA State Tournament, which concluded Saturday at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    The Rockets carded a collective 694, one shot behind third-place Williamsburg and two shots behind second-place Green County in the team race for first-place. Sacred Heart easily captured the state title with a 649.

  • Collins nips North Oldham 24-22

    The Collins football team took a giant step toward the Class 4A, District 3 title Friday night.

    Austin Nakatani’s 23-yard field goal with 3:51 to play propelled the Titans to a 24-22 victory over previously-unbeaten North Oldham in the de facto district championship game at Shelby County’s Robert Doyle Stadium.

    “It was a very good high school football game, we came up just a little bit short,” North Oldham Coach Billy Martin said.

    Less than a yard to be exact.

  • Collins girls’ soccer team drops...

    The Collins girls’ soccer team lost its regular-season finale, 2-1, to visiting Western Hills on Tuesday night at Clear Creek Park.

    “We outshot [them] and dominated the entire game against Western Hills but we got beat,” Titans Coach  Terry Murphy said. “It was one of those nights when our shots would not fall.”

    Sophomore forward Lindsey Ketcham scored Collins’ lone goal off a rebound.

  • District title may go to the...

    Don’t be surprised if tonight’s North Oldham vs. Collins football game has a playoff feel to it, because it will have major playoff implications.

    The winner of this de facto Class 4A, District 3 championship game – the three other teams in the district (Atherton, Spencer County and Waggener) have a combined record of 4-16 so far – likely will get the district’s No. 1 seeding in next month’s 4A playoffs and would have at least two home playoff games.

  • Rockets hope 2nd season blasts...

    The “second season” begins tonight for the Shelby County football team.

    The Rockets travel to Shepherdsville to take on North Bullitt at 7:30 p.m. as they begin play in Class 5A, District 4.

    “I told the kids we were in the second season now,” said Shelby County Coach Todd Shipley, whose team wrapped up its predistrict schedule last week.  

    Shipley said he is hoping the new season will be a new start for the Rockets (1-5), who are coming off a 39-0 loss to cross-town rival Collins.

    That’s the good news.

  • Slaughter outplays NBA star...

    Former Shelby County and Western Kentucky University basketball star A.J. Slaughter outscored, and apparently outplayed, NBA star Deron Williams on Tuesday as Slaughter’s new pro team, Dexia Mons Hainaut (based in Belgium), upset the team (Besiktas from Turkey) Williams is playing for during the NBA’s lockout.

    Slaughter scored 19 points, and Williams scored just seven points (on 3-for-13 shooting) and had six turnovers to offset seven assists in a game that determined who would play in the EuroCup regular season.

  • Rockets hope to have fun, then...

    Shelby County girls’ golf coach Anna Simpson has one major goal for her team at this weekend’s State Tournament.

    Nope, it’s not a state championship, although she’d gladly take that too.

    Simpson’s objective for her squad today and tomorrow at the Bowling Green Country Club is a lot simpler than that. 

    “Just go down and have fun, because they all play better when they’re having fun,” said Simpson, whose team is making its fourth consecutive trip to State.

  • They’re much the same – even in...

    It should come as no surprise that the Olsson twins, Shelby County seniors Christian and Haleigh, each shared the joy of finding a quarter on the ground just inside the gates of the Shelby County Athletic Complex less than a minute apart Wednesday night.

    The two share a car, for their first two years of high school they shared a class rank, they nearly share the same grade-point average (do they share the same brain?), and they also share a love of soccer.

  • Hall’s heroics give Rockets the...

    Freshman Logan Hall sent the Shelby County senior girls’ soccer players out in memorable fashion Wednesday night.

    Her buzzer-beating goal capped an incredible comeback and gave the Rockets a 4-3 victory over Sayre on their Senior Night at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    “Will someone please start my heart?” Shelby County Coach Joe Turner asked his team after the finish of the match.

    Hall’s shot ended a furious finish by the Rockets, who scored all four of their goals in the last 20 minutes, 27 seconds.
