  • Shelby County girls’ tennis team...

    The Shelby County girls’ tennis team picked up its first victory of the season Tuesday.

    The Rockets topped visiting South Oldham, 3-2, at Clear Creek Park.

    Shelby County’s victories came from seniors Patty Dempsey (6-0, 6-2) and Micah Broughton (6-2, 6-0) at Nos. 1 and 2 singles, respectively, as well as No. 2 doubles, where Rachel Travis and Haley Coffey won by default.

  • EARLIER: Shelby County man is...

    LOUISVILLE – Jon Court got his start as a jockey breaking horses…at a very young age.

    “When I was a kid, I’d wear out the springs on my rocking horse,” Court said last week. “I know I got bucked off a couple times too, and they had to put new springs on it.”

    Court, 50, now has reached a new ride in life.

    Collins sweeps cancer tourney

    The Collins softball team won all three of its games this past weekend in its Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament.

    The host Titans topped North Bullitt, 7-2, Friday before beating Paul Dunbar, 7-2, and Covington Holmes, 15-1, on Saturday.

    In the victory over the Eagles (4-14 at that point), junior Jeneca Thomas struck out 13 and allowed only two hits. She got all the offensive help she would need in the first inning on Rebecca Mouser’s three-run homer.

  • Track & field: SCHS boys...

    Even without a full complement of athletes, the Collins and Shelby County track & field teams had solid performances Saturday at the Kentucky Country Day Invitational.

    The Rockets won the boys’ competition, and the Titans took third. On the girls’ side, Collins finished sixth, and Shelby County was seventh.

    “We had a great day!” Shelby County Coach George Cottrell said. “We had several athletes out due to other school-related obligations. The girls’ side only had five athletes and they did a really solid job.”

  • Titans’ Bruner signs volleyball...

    When it came time for Collins volleyball coach Abbey Buchert to write a letter of recommendation for senior Kassie Bruner, Buchert wasn’t at a loss for words, she was at a loss for space.

    "When she asked me to write a letter for her, I could've written five pages about her," Buchert said. "I felt very fortunate and blessed this year to have Kassie on my team."

    Next season, though, Bruner will play for Union College. She signed with the school Monday afternoon in Collins’ library.

  • Baseball: Collins sweeps, SCHS...

    Collins topped two teams, and Shelby County won one and lost one during the weekend.

    The Titans trounced host Fairdale, 10-0, in five innings Friday, then beat visiting Waggener, 8-4, Saturday.

    Four solid innings from junior starter Chris Cervantes helped propel them past the Bulldogs (8-13 after the loss).

    “Chris Cervantes pitched great for four innings to get the win,” Collins Coach Roy Bailey said. “He only gave up one hit.”

  • Shelby native Burnett finishes...

    Shelby County native Hannah Sue Burnett used a strong cross country score to race up the standings at the Rolex Three-Day Event at the Kentucky Horse Park over the weekend.

    Burnett placed fifth in cross country, posting a blazing time of 10 minutes and 57 seconds with no faults.

    That pushed Burnett into the fifth position overall going into Sunday's stadium jumping event where she finished the event inside the top 10, at eighth overall.

  • 2 methods, 2 success stories for...

    One has done it with youth, the other with those long in the tooth (relatively speaking).

    But both county baseball teams are off to solid, if not surprising, starts so far this season.

    Both Collins and Shelby County, whose first scheduled meeting Thursday night was postponed until May 11 because of wet field conditions, have winning records (the Titans 8-2, the Rockets 10-5) but have achieved them by different designs.

  • Ex-Rockets help Titans blast off...

    The Collins and Shelby County softball teams have had their share of ups and downs this season, although the Titans have had more “ups” collectively. 

     

    COLLINS

    The Titans (7-6, 2-1 in the 30th District) won their first three games, lost their next five (three by one run) and have won four of their last five. Their lone loss during that stretch was a 1-0 setback at then-second-ranked Mercy Academy.
