  • 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.

  • Collins wins pair of volleyball...

    The Collins volleyball team won a pair of matches this week, defeating Franklin County on Tuesday night and Eminence on Wednesday.

    The host Titans beat the Flyers, 25-21, 20-25, 25-18. Collins, led by its seniors, won the decisive set after dropping the second. Senior outside hitter Allison Henshaw finished with four aces, 15 digs and one block, while classmate middle blocker Ashley Williams added 8 kills and 16 digs.

  • Shelby County Invitational...

    Saturday’s Shelby County cross country invitational could be a preview of the Class 2A, Region 3 meet, in more ways than one.

    Several of the top teams, and individuals, who’ll run at the Rockets’ course tomorrow morning will likely be back at the same site for the regional meet Nov. 5. The girls’ varsity race is set to begin at 9 a.m. Saturday with the boys’ varsity race to follow at 9:45 a.m.

  • Rockets want to take care of the...

    There were three major points of emphasis in Shelby County football practices this week.

    “Hold onto the football, one, hurry up and get out of the huddle on offense, two, and stay low on the offensive and defensive lines,” Rockets Coach Todd Shipley said.

    All three were key in Shelby County’s season-opening loss last Friday and should be again beginning at 7:30 p.m. tonight, when the Rockets play at old rival Anderson County.
