  • 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.

  • Rockets face another ranked...

    Another week, another Top 10 opponent for the Shelby County football team.

    Last Friday night it was Anderson County, which is tied for ninth in this week’s Associated Press Top 10 poll in Class 5A. Tonight the Rockets host No. 8 Jeffersontown at 7:30 p.m. in their first home game of the season.

    Shelby County is looking to rebound from last week’s lopsided loss (58-20) to the Bearcats against a faster, and maybe even more formidable foe.

  • Kicking ‘til the very end

    It was a cool, drizzly Wednesday night, and her team trailed Oldham County, 9-0, with less than 10 minutes to play, but Shelby County senior Alex Patterson was still trying.

    Trying to get to the ball, trying to make a run up the field, trying to get a goal.

    But that’s Patterson, the hard-playing, fleet-footed, goal-gobbling, diminutive senior forward for the Rockets’ girls’ soccer team. 

  • Collins’ boys golf team routs...

    The Collins boys’ golf team beat rival Shelby County, 163-183, last Thursday evening at Shelbyville Country Club in a Central Kentucky Conference match. 

    Titans sophomore Brandon Sanner was the medalist with a 2-over-par 38. He was closely followed by senior teammates Tayler Adams and Conor Doyle, who carded 41s, respectively. Sophomore Michael Troutman added a 43 to round out Collins’ top four scorers.

  • Titans' men in black run...

    The Collins boys’ cross-country team wants to be among the top teams in Class 2A this season.

    The Titans looked the part, in a couple of ways, Saturday at the Shelby County Invitational.

    Wearing brand-new all-black uniforms with a blue “C” on the jersey, Collins placed five runners in the Top 18 and nearly beat Lexington Catholic, the fourth-place finisher at last year’s State meet.

    “We wanted to make a statement in two-A,” Collins Coach Stephen Drawbaugh said.

  • Bearcats' hot start...

    Friday night was a scorcher in Lawrenceburg, just ask the Shelby County football team.

    Host Anderson County burned the Rockets for 43 consecutive first-half points on its way to a 52-7 lead and a 58-20 victory in a game that was delayed a half hour at the start because of a heat index of more than 103 degrees.

  • Titans take new route to victory

    BUCKNER – It wasn’t your typical Jerry Lucas-called football game.

    But it wasn’t a bad thing for Collins.
