  • 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.

  • It’s still holiday tourney time...

    The high school basketball holiday tournaments continue next week.

    Here is a look ahead at what each of the four county teams are up to:

  • Collins, SCHS swimmers sparkle...

    A pair of local swimmers won events this past Saturday at the 10th annual Woodford County Invitational at the Falling Springs Arts & Rec Center in Versailles.

    Collins sophomore Michael Troutman won the boys’ 50-yard freestyle race in 23.03 seconds, and Shelby County junior Logan Kessinger captured the girls’ 100 breaststroke in 1:10.05 in one of the biggest invitationals both teams will swim in this season.

  • Thriller 2: Titans take it to...

    The last-second heroics carried over for the Collins girls’ basketball team from Friday night to Saturday evening.

    The Titans, who beat Bullitt East on Leeara Cardwell’s last-second shot Friday, used another buzzer-beating 3-pointer – this one by Bailey Rankin – to send Saturday’s game against Knott County Central into overtime.

    From there, Collins, which rallied back from a double-digit deficit in regulation, pummeled the Patriots, 71-58, in the Dairy Queen Classic at Mercer County.

  • Dragons shoot down Titans in...

    CRESTWOOD – A forgettable fourth quarter did in the Collins boys’ basketball team last Thursday night.

    The Titans were outscored by 16 points in the final period as host South Oldham rallied for a 77-62 victory in a battle between two of the 8th Region’s top teams.

    Collins led by double digits in the third quarter and by one point heading into the final period, before the Dragons roared to life, outscoring the Titans, 19-6, during the final 6:02.

  • Cardwell makes another big shot...

    CRESTWOOD – The Collins girls’ basketball team didn’t need a last-second shot to win Monday afternoon’s game against Jeffersontown or even to send it into overtime. However, a buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter didn’t hurt.

    Leeara Cardwell made that shot, and the Titans beat the Chargers, 58-48, in the first round of South Oldham’s Lady Dragon Invitational.

  • Rockets can't capitalize on...

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team couldn’t have had a much better start defensively against Anderson County last Friday night.

    Offensively, though, it could have gone better.

    The Rockets held the Bearcats, one of the preseason favorites to win the 8th Region, scoreless for the first three and a half minutes and to just nine first-quarter points.

  • Hopes for another miracle run...

    There was no last-second magic for the Shelby County boys’ basketball team this time around.

    The Rockets, who beat Anderson County on Eric Schreiner’s fall-away 3-pointer at the buzzer last season, fell to the Bearcats, 87-77, Friday night at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    This meeting didn’t come down to the final seconds. Instead it turned in the matter of 1:10 early in the third quarter.
