  • Collins may add girls’ lacrosse

    There is a movement to start a girls’ lacrosse club team at Collins High School.

    That was one of the items on the agenda for Thursday night’s Shelby County School Board meeting.

    “If board approves, we will begin to hire coach and get information out to have team in [the] spring,” Collins Athletic Director Gary Kidwell said.

    Webb earns all-state

  • Cain named KSGA’s player of the...

    Shelbyville’s Rick Cain has been named the Kentucky Senior Golf Association 2011 KSGA Player of the Year, the fourth time he has won the award that goes to the individual who amasses the most points based on his performance at various state and national events. He previously earned the honor in 2003, ’04 and ’09.

    Cain captured this year’s top spot thanks to victories in the KSGA Spring Special and the Senior Match Play Tournament. He also finished in the Top 10 at the Senior Amateur Championship, the Kentucky Senior Open and the KSGA Fall Special.

  • Rockets roll with No. 14...

    The Shelby County girls’ soccer team more than held its own for the first 68 minutes against 14th-ranked North Oldham on Tuesday evening.

    Unfortunately for the Rockets it was those last 12 minutes that were the difference in the 16th District Tournament first-round match at the Shelby County Athletic Complex. The Mustangs scored thrice in the final dozen minutes to down Shelby County, 3-0.

  • Medley makes the Titans go

    Before this boys’ soccer season began, Collins Coach Scott Cress, who graduated 13 players from his inaugural team, wondered where his second squad’s leadership would come from.

    He quickly found his answer in the form of senior Baker Medley, a midfielder who has become the emotional leader (the ying to the yang of quiet leader Matthew Murphy, a senior defender) of the Titans, who will play host and 13th-ranked Oldham County at noon Saturday in the 16th District Tournament final.

  • Titans deflect their way into...

    BUCKNER – This time of year, goals aren’t judged on beauty. They are simply counted.

    And Collins boys’ soccer coach Scott Cress couldn’t have been happier about that fact Tuesday night after his Titans knocked off, and knocked out, 20th-ranked South Oldham, 1-0, in the 16th District semifinals at Oldham County.

  • Close loss provides big push for...

    If last Friday night’s 1-point loss at North Bullitt wasn’t a moral victory for the Shelby County football team, it was at least a morale victory.

    One week after losing to their cross-town rival Collins, 39-0, the Rockets pushed the Eagles, the preseason favorite in Class 5A, District 4, to the brink before falling, 14-13.

  • Struggling Waggener next in...

    The Collins football team took a giant step toward winning the Class 4A, District 3 title with last week’s victory over previously unbeaten North Oldham.

    However Titans Coach Jerry Lucas doesn’t want his team to have a misstep tonight against a Waggener team that has won only two games.

  • Titans bounce to title in rubber...

    It was all about the middlemen, or in this case middlewomen, Wednesday night for the Collins volleyball team.

    Led by their A&W middle hitters – senior Ashley Williams and junior Aaliyah Wells – the Titans topped cross-town rival Shelby County, 25-22, 25-17, in the 30th District final, the third meeting between the two this season, at the Rockets’ Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Williams had five kills and Wells nine a day after she turned 17.
