  • Finchville’s Burnett wins Pan Am...

    Shelby County native Hannah Burnett may have to stop at customs on her way back from Guadalajara, Mexico.

    Burnett, 25, who now hails from The Plains, Va., helped the U.S. win gold during Pan American Games team eventing competition and then took her own silver in the individual eventing competition on Sunday.

  • Shelby County beats Bullitt East...

    The Shelby County football team picked up its second victory of the season, and its first in Class 5A, District 4, Friday night.

    The Rockets rolled over visiting Bullitt East 32-13 at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    Shelby County (2-7, 1-2) trailed 13-3 at halftime, but outscored the Chargers 29-0 in the second half - including 22-0 in the fourth quarter.

    All four of the Rockets' second-half scores were from 36 yards or more.

  • Cross country season enters...

    With most of the other high school sports already in their respective postseasons, cross country begins to enter the home stretch before the regionals on the first weekend of November and the state championships the following weekend.

    Saturday both county schools will be competing in separate meets. Collins will collectively run in the Henry County Invitational at Renaissance Park in Eminence. Henry, Oldham and Trimble counties are among the teams expected to attend.

  • Rockets can mess up playoff...

    One of the things recently deceased Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis was best known for was his motto: “Just win, baby.”

    In recent weeks Shelby County football coach Todd Shipley has had a similar message for his running backs. His slogan has been “just run.” 

  • Titans look to improve against...

    With the Class 4A, District 3 title already wrapped up, Collins football coach Jerry Lucas has one major goal for his team tonight.

    No, it’s not to score 100 points against Atherton – although given the fact that earlier this season the Rebels lost by 40 points to Waggener, who lost by 55 points to the Titans last Friday night, it may not be too far-fetched.

    Lucas’ goal for his team in its district finale is to continue to improve.

  • Hawkins' injury disrupts...

    HEBRON ESTATES – Shelby County’s Caty Hawkins missed much of the Rockets’ first volleyball match against North Oldham.

    As it turned out Hawkins, a senior setter/outside hitter, missed all of the second, a 25-12, 25-7 Mustangs’ victory Tuesday night in the 8th Region semifinals at North Bullitt.

    Hawkins sprained an ankle in the first meeting, a 25-11, 25-12 victory by North Oldham on Aug. 18. Then, she sat out the second meeting after tweaking a hamstring in the Rockets’ first region victory in two years.

  • Rockets slip on middle ground

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Shelby County had a decent start and a solid finish to its football game Friday night at Bullitt Central.

    Unfortunately for the Rockets it was the middle that got them.

    The host Cougars scored 28 consecutive points, from late in the first period until late in the third period, on their way to a 35-21 Class 5A, District 4 victory.

    Once again Shelby County’s biggest foe was itself. The Rockets (1-7, 0-2) had four turnovers and were penalized nine times for 77 yards in their fourth consecutive loss.

  • One and done again for Titans

    HEBRON ESTATES – Collins volleyball coach Abbey Buchert said she thought her team would need to play perfectly, or pretty close to it, to beat Oldham County in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament.

    As it turned out one team did play almost impeccably, however it wasn’t the one she’d hoped.

    The Colonels took out the Titans, 25-11, 25-16, Monday night at North Bullitt.

  • Rockets rout Bearcats

    Monday night was a big night for the Shelby County volleyball program.

    The Rockets recorded their first 8th Region Tournament victory since the “split” as Shelby County swept Walton-Verona, 25-15, 25-21, at North Bullitt.

    “We got a big win,” said Shelby County Coach Felicia Pace, whose team played 14th-ranked North Oldham in Tuesday evening’s semifinals. “It’s exciting…it’s a real nice feeling to advance past the first round.”

  • Plays all big as Titans’ roll

    Plays were at a premium, but points were aplenty for the Collins football team’s offense Friday night.

    The Titans ran only 23 plays ­­­­– including a mere two (yes two!) in the second half – in their 58-3 victory over visiting Waggener in a Class 4A, District 3 game at Shelby County’s Robert Doyle Stadium.
