  • Shelby schools challenge, win...

    The Collins girls’ swim team finished second and the Titans’ boys’ team took third, Wednesday evening in a six-team meet at the Family Activity Center at Clear Creek Park.

    Meanwhile the Shelby County boys’ and girls’ teams both finished in fifth place.

    Oldham County won the girls’ meet, and South Oldham took the boys’ meet.

    In the girls’ meet, the Colonels scored 405 points, while Collins came in second with 319. The Rockets were fifth with 265.

  • Cold shooting cools off Titans

    The Collins girls’ basketball team’s shooting stroke went south on Tuesday night.

    The Titans shot just 29.3 percent from the field on their way to their first loss of the season, 57-40, at George Rogers Clark.

    Collins trailed only 16-13 at the end of the first quarter but was outscored 19-6 in the second period after junior forward Aaliyah Wells, the team’s leading scorer and rebounder, picked up her second foul.

  • Titans enter a zone to rally...

    With his team trailing by seven points after the first quarter and at halftime, first-year Collins boys’ basketball coach Chris Gaither preached patience.

    That paid off in the second half as the Titans, by taking their time on the offensive end, rallied for a 54-51 victory over visiting Franklin County on Tuesday night. Collins (3-1) outscored the Flyers, 15-9, in the third quarter and in the fourth, 19-15, to bounce back from last weekend’s loss at North Oldham and also avenge one of their losses from last season.

  • 3-pointers bury Rockets early

    South Oldham bombarded the Shelby County boys’ basketball team Tuesday night.

    The visiting Dragons hit 19 3-pointers on their way to a 109-68 victory over the Rockets at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    South Oldham hit 10 first-half 3-pointers as it led by 23 points at the end of the first quarter and by 38 at halftime. 

    “They shot lights out,” Shelby County Coach Rick Parsons said.

  • Victory comes early for the...

    NEW CASTLE – It took until the 17th game, and the first week of February, before the Shelby County girls’ basketball team won its first game of last season.

    This season the Rockets didn’t have to wait nearly as long.

    Tuesday night Shelby County beat host Henry County, 44-35, in the Rockets’ second game of the season.

    “I’m really proud of the girls,” Shelby County Coach Mike Sowers said.

  • Titans’ sterling comeback...

    GOSHEN – First-year Collins boys’ basketball coach Chris Gaither was unhappy with his team’s 48-45 loss at North Oldham on Saturday night, but he wasn’t upset by it.

    “I thought tonight was our best game,” Gaither said afterward. “Our guys battled. We were down, [but] we came back on the defensive end and turned them over. Tonight was the hardest our kids have fought all year.” 

  • Collins, SCHS swimmers do well...

    The Collins boys’ and girls’ swim teams both took third-place and the Shelby County boys’ and girls’ squads finished fourth in the Holiday Classic Relays this past Saturday in the Family Activity Center at Clear Creek Park.

    North Oldham won both 6-team competitions, tallying 328 points on the girls’ side and 324 on the boys’ side.

    In the girls’ competition the Titans edged the Rockets by two points (238 to 236), and among the boys Collins outscored Shelby, 230-218.

  • Titans go to Wells over &...

    The Collins girls’ basketball team got a big offensive game from Aaliyah Wells and another dominating defensive effort Monday night.

    Wells scored 28 points, and the Titans tallied 15 steals – nine by Leeara Cardwell – and forced 19 turnovers on their way to a 47-27 victory over visiting Spencer County.

    Wells, a junior forward, hit 12 of 18 shots from the field and 4 for 6 from the free-throw line. She also snared seven rebounds and had three steals as Collins (3-0) improved to 2-0 in the 30th District.

  • Titans’ big start is the...

    Collins girls’ basketball coach Phillip Conder couldn’t have asked for a better start for his team Friday night.

    And although he would’ve liked a better finish, he wasn’t complaining after his Titans topped host Shelby County, 51-18, in Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Buoyed by its full-court press Collins scored the first eight points – and 16 of the first 18 – on its way to a 20-4 lead at the end of the first quarter, a 28-point halftime advantage and a 33-point victory.
