  • 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.

  • Long tees off in U.S. Senior...

    Shelbyville’s Dennis Long will tee it up this weekend with some of the best senior golfers in the country.

    Long is one of 156 players from around the nation in the 57th USGA Senior Amateur Championship at Kinloch Golf Club in Manakin-Sabot, Va. Long is in the third group to tee off at 7:54 a.m. Saturday.

    He will play two stroke-play rounds as he tries to qualify for the final 64 players, who will play a match-play tournament.

  • Rockets almost pull off boys...

    It was nearly the biggest upset in boys’ soccer this season.

    But to first-year Shelby County Coach Tony Wood it was merely the beginning.

    “This is the first step,” Wood told his team after it lost in a shootout to 10th-ranked Oldham County on Tuesday night at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

  • Collins volleyball team divides...

    Collins’ volleyball team fell to 16th-ranked North Oldham in straight sets, 25-18, 25-17, Tuesday night at home but bounced back with a 25-14, 25-17 victory over visiting Spencer County on Wednesday night. 

    The Mustangs (12-3), also in the 8th Region, built a 22-9 lead late in the second set before Collins rallied. The Titans outscored North, 8-2, before a service error gave the Mustangs the match.

  • Titans hoping to make a pass (...

    The Collins football team will try to get back to its brief past Saturday night.

    Or in the Titans’ case, their pass.

    Collins rushed a program-high 45 times in last week’s 20-7 victory over Oldham County, but the Titans also had program-lows in pass completions (four) and attempts (15) in the victory over the Colonels.

    Collins (2-1) will try to increase both numbers when it hosts Louisville Eastern (2-1), the No. 9 team in the Associated Press Class 6A Top 10 poll, at 6 p.m. Saturday at Shelby County’s Robert Doyle Stadium.
