  • Junior Jones matures into...

    Shelby County junior outside hitter Ariana (“Air-y” for short) Jones has become the go-to player for the Rockets’ volleyball team (6-6 heading into Thursday night’s match at Anderson County) this season.

    “Ari is my exceptional player,” Shelby County Coach Felicia Pace said. “She’s one the team relies on to be their big gun…just her athleticism pulls the kids together. It makes them aspire to do the things she does.”

  • Big cross-country tests this...

    The Collins and Shelby County cross-country teams will face some of the best competition this state, and surrounding states, have to offer Saturday.

    The boys’ teams from both schools are slated to compete in the Trinity Invitational, while the girls’ squads will run in the Valkyrie Invitational. Both meets, which usually draw the best teams in Kentucky as well as some of the top squads from Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee, are held together at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park.

  • Oakey’s shot more than OK

    Goals have been hard to come by so far this season for the Collins boys’ soccer team, so the Titans have had learn to savor each one.

    With that in mind, Jack Oakey’s first-half goal against South Oldham on Tuesday night at Clear Creek Park was especially sweet.

  • 1 team will leave game with 1 W

    Something’s got to give tonight in New Castle.

    That’s when, and where, winless Shelby County plays winless Henry County at 7:30 p.m.

    “They’re kind of like us; they’re struggling a little bit,” Shelby County Coach Todd Shipley said.

    The two teams do seem to have a couple of things in common, in addition to their “0” in the W column.

  • Collins boys win cross-country...

    The Collins boys’ cross-country team won the E.G. Plummer Invitational on Saturday in Danville.

    The Titans placed four runners in the top 21, led by junior Devon Fielding, who finished eighth in 17 minutes, 59.7 seconds.

    Tates Creek junior Adrian Lyttle won the race in 17:16.2.

  • Collins takes 2nd place, SCHS’...

    It was a successful Saturday for the Collins boys’ golf team and for Shelby County senior Reed Mills.

    The Titans took second-place, and Mills finished third overall at the Central Kentucky Conference Tournament at Woodford Hills Golf & Country Club in Versailles.

    Collins carded a collective 307, 15 shots behind victorious Scott County but ahead of Western Hills and Anderson County, two teams who had beaten the Titans during the regular season.

  • Jackson’s actions too much for...

    All last week Shelby County Coach Todd Shipley talked to his team about the importance of stopping Jeffersontown quarterback Demichael Jackson.

    After Friday night’s game, Jackson’s name was once again on the tip of Shipley’s tongue after he rushed for 247 yards and four touchdowns, and returned a kickoff for 93 yards and another score, in the Chargers’ 41-7 victory over the Rockets in their home-opener at Robert Doyle Stadium.

  • Halftime lead goes poof against...

    The Collins football team finished the first half of Saturday night’s game against Eastern with all the momentum of an 18-wheeler heading downhill.

    The Titans scored three touchdowns in the final 2 minutes and 19 seconds to lead the Eagles 28-14 at intermission.

    But then?

    "The wheels fell off," Collins Coach Jerry Lucas said.

    Visiting Eastern, No. 9 in The Associated Press Class 6A poll, scored 35 consecutive points in the second half for a 49-28 victory over Collins at Shelby County's Robert Doyle Stadium.

  • Eastern clobbers Collins in...

    Visiting Eastern scored 35 unanswered points in the second half to rally for a 49-28 victory over Collins on Saturday night at Shelby County's Robert Doyle Stadium.

    The Titans scored three touchdowns in the final 2 minutes and 19 seconds of the first half to lead 28-14 at intermission, but Collins couldn't carry that momentum over into the second half.

    The Eagles scored on their first five possessions of the second half, including three times on the heels of Titans' turnovers, to take command of the game.

  • Chargers rout Rockets, 41-7

    Jeffersontown quarterback Demichael Jackson rushed for 247 yards and four touchdowns, and returned a kickoff 93 yards for another score, as the Chargers slammed Shelby County 41-7 Friday night at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    Jackson scored on TD runs of 35, 35, 88 and 13 yards as J-town, No. 8 in the Associated Press Class 5A poll, rolled up 351 yards of total offense.

    "We couldn't stop him," Shelby County Coach Todd Shipley said.

    Meanwhile the Rockets, once again, stopped themselves with four lost fumbles and 10 penalties.
