  • Ketcham (3 goals) powers 2nd...

    Lindsey Ketcham is glad that Terry Murphy talked her into playing soccer.

    On Wednesday night so was Murphy.

    Ketcham, a sophomore forward, scored three goals to lead the Collins girls' soccer team to a 5-0 victory over Pleasure Ridge Park at Clear Creek Park.

    Six years ago, though, Ketcham had never played the sport.

  • Titans kick off season at home...

    Collins High School kicks off its home-away-from-home football season tonight across town from its campus with what could be a less-than-easy opener.

    The Class 4A Titans, trying to follow up on last year’s 11-2 inaugural season, begin the 2011 campaign by hosting 6A Meade County at 7:30 at Shelby County’s Robert Doyle Stadium.

    The game is being played at SCHS because problems with Collins’ year-old turf field have left it unsafe for play and unavailable for this season.

  • SCHS volleyball team sweeps...

    The Shelby County volleyball team routed host Eminence, 25-6, 25-4, Tuesday night. Senior Caty Hawkins led the Rockets in serving with five aces. 

     “Our offense was outstanding from everyone,” Coach Felicia Pace said.

    Shelby County (3-2) hosted North Oldham on Thursday night. The Rockets play at Whitefield Academy on Monday.

     

    GIRLS’ SOCCER: SCHS falls

  • You can follow me at games on...

    Okay I’m finally doing it, I’m finally using the Twitter account I opened last year.

    Thursday I posted a couple of Tweets to get things rolling, and beginning tonight I’ll be posting updates throughout the Collins football game.

    I’ll try my best to provide as much as-it-happens information on all the county sports, and sports teams, as I can this fall, and then into the winter, and so on.

  • Assertive Andriot scores all 3...

    Last boys’ soccer season, Walker Andriot took a backseat to Collins’s sizeable senior class.

    Tuesday night he showed why he's likely going to be in the driver's seat of the Titans’ attack all season long.

    Andriot, a junior center-midfielder, scored all three goals – matching his total from all of last season – in Collins’ 3-0 victory over Shelby County at the Shelby County Athletic Complex, in what was actually a Titans’ home game.

  • Patterson’s 4 goals fuel Rockets...

    Alex Patterson helped make sure that the Shelby County girls’ soccer team got off on the right cleat Monday night.

    Patterson, a senior forward, scored four goals – all in the first half - as the Rockets routed

    Carroll County, 9-0, in their season-opener at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    “It feels good. I think it’s good for our team because last year we struggled a lot,” Patterson said.

  • Youth was served as Rockets,...

    Youth was definitely served on the golf course at Weissinger Hills on Monday afternoon.

    That’s where, and when, a very young Shelby County girls’ team, which was playing without its top three players, beat an almost equally as young Collins squad, 230-248, in the Titans’ first varsity match of the season.  

  • Rockets redeem one 2010 loss,...

    It was a week of redemption for the Shelby County volleyball team.

    The Rockets made good on one chance at atonement but narrowly missed on another.

    Shelby County beat 8th Region rival North Bullitt, 25-22, 25-22, this past Thursday before falling to Oldham County, the No. 15 team in the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association Preseason Top 25 and another region foe, 25-20, 25-16 Monday night at Mike Casey Gymnasium. Both teams beat the Rockets last season.

  • Collins girls' soccer team...

    The Collins girls’ soccer team won its season-opener Monday night, beating Meade County, 3-0, at Clear Creek Park.

    Junior Shelby Vogel and seniors Hannah Garner and Sarah Robinson tallied goals for the Titans, who went 9-8-2 in their inaugural season.

    Vogel, a midfielder, broke a scoreless tie with a little less than six minutes remaining in the first half when her shot from outside the goal box took a hot hop and bounced over the diving Meade County goalie.

  • Dennis Long qualifies for USGA...

    Shelbyville golfer Dennis Long qualified for the USGA Senior Amateur Championship on Wednesday.

    Long posted the low score, a 3-under-par 69, at Kentucky’s 2011 USGA Senior Amateur qualifier at Greenbrier Golf & Country Club in Lexington.

    Long and Dan Smith (who shot an even-par 72, then defeated Joe Cantrell on the third hole of a sudden-death playoff), both qualified for the championship, which will be Sept. 10-15 at Kinloch Golf Club in Manakin-Sabot, Va.

    Shelbyville’s Rick Cain tied for 12th with a 77.
