  • This hawk is no red-shouldered ‘...

    The immatures of the Red-Shoulder Hawk are often misidentified as being Red-Tailed Hawks, unless you look closely with binoculars.
    But if you are fortunate enough to hear the rowdy, raucous call of the Red-Shouldered Hawk, then the identification comes easily.
    Its call has been described as a loud, far-carrying scream that sounds like a long drawn out “kee-yar, kee-yar, kee-yar,” a call that the Blue Jay can imitate to perfection.

  • Elzy to join Cresap at Lindsey...

    Collins senior Tavis Elzy said he is looking forward to continuing his football career, and his connection with his quarterback, at Lindsey Wilson College.

    “It was just a matter of being the best fit for me," said Elzy, a standout wide receiver for the Titans who has committed to play for the Blue Raiders. "It came down to Campbellsville [University] and Lindsey Wilson, and Lindsey Wilson throws the ball sixty times a game like I'm used to."

  • 46-0 run dooms the Rockets’ good...

    The start was good for the Shelby County girls’ basketball team, and the finish was even better.

    But it was the in between that got the Rockets on Wednesday night.

    Shelby County scored the first three baskets of the game to lead, 6-0, but Anderson County ran off the next 46 points in a row on its way to a 61-22, 30th District victory Wednesday night.

    “The positive is that we got off to a good start,” Shelby County Coach Mike Sowers said. “However [46-0]...that simply can’t happen.”

  • Calmer Titans rally to victory

    Collins’ calmness won out over Nelson County’s nerves Tuesday night.

    The Titans’ girls’ basketball team overcame a big early hole – they trailed, 18-2, in the first quarter – to clip the Cardinals 52-49 at Nelson County.

    “We played poised,” Collins Coach Phillip Conder said. “As the lead grew we didn’t panic and start throwing up shots. We did a good job of running our offense and taking good shots.”

  • Rockets get going early to win...

    EMINENCE – The Shelby County boys’ basketball team didn’t have to look very far for motivation Tuesday night heading into its game at Eminence.

    The Rockets were searching for their first 30th District victory, and they were looking for their third triumph of the season.

    But then they got some more extra incentive before their game tipped off.

  • At last, the sweet taste of...

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball coaches affectionately call Kirstin Dugle the “three-legged dog” for her propensity to play through the pain of plantar facsciitis, which has hobbled her late this season.

    Tuesday night Dugle was the big dog in the Rockets’ 44-43 victory at Eminence as they earned their first victory of the season.

    Dugle scored a game-high 15 points, including a trio of 3-pointers, and her leadership down the stretch helped the Rockets get their first victory of the season.

  • Schreiner’s ‘crazy’ 3-pointer...

    LAWRENCEBURG ­– It was the shot heard around Anderson County, and back to Shelby County, Wednesday night.

    Eric Schreiner’s turn-around 3-pointer, as he fell into his team's bench, banked in just after the buzzer to give the Shelby County boys' basketball team a 55-54 victory at Anderson.

    "I thought it was going to hit the side of the backboard, but then I saw it go in...it was crazy," said Schreiner, a junior guard.

  • Rockets roll early, shot down...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team may have surprised North Oldham in the first half Saturday night.

    But a motivated Mustangs’ team didn’t surprise Rockets Coach Rick Parsons. North Oldham, which had sizzling shooting all night long, outscored Shelby County, 19-9, in the third period on its way to a 57-46 victory at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

  • Good half does not equal a good...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team played one of its best halves of the season Friday night.

    Unfortunately for the Titans it was followed up by one of their not-so-great third quarters.

    Host Bullitt East outscored Collins, 30-11, in the third period on its way to a 78-59 victory Friday night.

  • Titans play close with top team

    The Collins girls’ basketball team went toe-to-toe with the best defensive team in the state and one of the top teams in the 8th Region on Monday night.

    The Titans, however, came up just short – literally – in a 39-37 loss to Owen County.

    Collins had two chances to tie the game in the final 13 seconds, but Aaliyah Wells’ pull-up jumper spun in and out, then Leeara Cardwell’s last-second shot came up slightly short.
