  • Titans struggle with turnovers,...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team had a rough start to Christmas vacation but rebounded for back-to-back victories.

    The Titans lost three consecutive games – at Covington Holy Cross on Dec. 17 then back-to-back games to Spring Hill (Tenn.) and Doss last Tuesday and Wednesday in the Citizens First Holiday Classic at Bowling Green.

    However Collins bounced back to win its final two games in Bowling Green, beating Silver Thorne (Canada), 73-38, and Owensboro, 62-50, last Wednesday.

  • ‘Most disappointing’ loss for...

    The second and fourth quarters were troublesome for the Shelby County boys’ basketball team in the third-place game of the Capital City Invitational in Frankfort.

    Henry County outscored the Rockets, 50-34, in those periods on its way to an 85-73 victory last Thursday night in the Western Hills’ tournament.

    “It was probably the most disappointing game I’ve had since I’ve been at Shelby County,” Coach Rick Parsons said.

  • Rockets finish year on winning...

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team closed out the calendar year in style.

    The Rockets won their second consecutive game and fifth of the young season, beating Moore, 49-39, last Thursday in the third-place game of Waggener’s Lady Cats Holiday Invitational.

    “Overall, I'd say it was our best effort to date,” said Shelby County Coach Mike Sowers, whose team is off until it hosts Spencer County on Tuesday. “We played a very complete game, especially on the defensive end.”

  • Rockets’ rallies come up a bit...

    NEW CASTLE – Shelby County’s comebacks came up short against Atherton on Tuesday afternoon.

    The Rebels held off several Rockets’ rallies to hold on for an 86-77 victory in the Henry County Invitational Tournament.

    Shelby County, which trailed by two points at halftime, fell behind by double digits early in the fourth quarter before Bryan Wallace’s layup with 1:26 to play trimmed Atherton’s advantage to six, 78-72.

  • Rockets’ slow start means quick...

    A second consecutive slow start did in the Shelby County girls’ basketball team Tuesday.

    The Rockets, who were outscored, 9-1, in the first quarter of last Friday’s loss to Anderson County, were outscored, 16-3, in the first period by Louisville Holy Cross in the first round of the Lady Cats Holiday Invitational at Waggener.

    The final three quarters were close, but the Cougars’ hot start was too much for Shelby County to overcome in Holy Cross’ 54-34 victory.

  • Powell-powered Rockets pass...

    LOUISVILLE – There was plenty for Hayley Powell and her Shelby County girls’ basketball teammates to smile about Wednesday evening.

    Powell scored six points in the final 12 minutes to spark Shelby County to a 45-36, comeback victory over Atherton in the consolation bracket of the Lady Cats Holiday Invitational at Waggener.

    The victory ended the Rockets’ 3-game losing streak and also helped them to surpass their victory total from all of last season, when they went 3-22.

  • Titans can’t quite knock down...

    CRESTWOOD – Collins girls’ basketball coach Phillip Conder said his team’s game against host South Oldham in the final of the Lady Dragon Invitational would “show us where we’re at in the region.”

    So where did Conder think his Titans stood after losing, 64-54, to the Dragons on Wednesday night?

    “I’d say we’re knocking on the door for being among those top four [teams in the 8th region],” Conder said. “We’re like that pushy neighbor who always wants to come in.”

  • Rockets trim Western Hills but...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team picked up its second victory of the season earlier this week but missed a chance to make it two in a row.

    The Rockets beat host Western Hills, 72-67, Tuesday night in the first round of the Capital City Invitational in Frankfort but fell to 8th Region rival Owen County, 99-60, Wednesday night.

    Shelby County (2-5 after the loss to Owen) finished up play in the invitational against Henry County on Thursday night.

  • Titans win ‘best game' of...

    CRESTWOOD – The Collins girls’ basketball team was clicking Tuesday night.

    Led by another big game from senior guard Leeara Cardwell and a dominating defensive effort, the Titans throttled Franklin County, 49-22, in the winners’ bracket semifinals of South Oldham’s Lady Dragon Invitational.

    “By far the best game we’ve had,” Collins Coach Phillip Conder said.

  • Titans rebound from 2 defeats

    What started out as a rough road trip for the Collins boys’ basketball team ended on a high note for the Titans.

    Collins, which lost at Covington Holy Cross this past Saturday then to Spring Hill (Tenn.) on Monday in its first game of the Citizens First Holiday Classic in Bowling Green, fell to Doss, 58-42, Tuesday but bounced back with a pair of victories – 73-38 over Silver Thorne (Canada) and 62-50 over Owensboro on Wednesday.
