  • Harover returns for SCHS

    For the first time all season the Shelby County girls’ golf team will be at full strength Saturday.

    Rockets senior Shannon Harover, the team’s No. 2 player the past two years, will make her 2011 debut in the Bullitt East Invitational, which begins at 7:30 a.m. at Heritage Hill Golf Club in Shepherdsville.

    Harover has missed the first few weeks of the season because of a kneecap injury.

  • First up, Rockets will try to...

    Todd Shipley’s No. 1 goal for tonight is to stop LaRue County’s No. 1 one option.

    Hawks senior fullback Drew Newberry rushed 22 times for 129 yards and his team’s only touchdown in LaRue’s season-opening, 26-7 loss to North Bullitt last Saturday.

    “He makes the engine go on offense,” Shipley, the Shelby County football coach, said.

  • They’re off and running toward...

    The high school cross-country season kicks off with Saturday’s Tiger Run at Old River Road Country Club in Louisville, and some county teams, and individuals, could have some big seasons.

    Here is a quick look at the squads from both schools:

    New Shelby County cross-country coach Andrew Danner takes over a girls’ team that has high hopes for 2011.

    For good reason.

  • SCHS boys win 1st soccer match

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team won its first match of the season Tuesday night, clobbering Carroll County, 8-4, at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    Sophomore striker Raul Lopez had two goals and an assist for Shelby County, which was coming off a 2-2 tie at Louisville Butler on Monday.

  • Rebounding teams expect Titanic...

     

    Saturday night will be a clash of the Titans.

    But the same nickname might not be the only thing that Collins and Mercer County, who’ll meet at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the Stuart Powell Bowl at Boyle County, have in common.

  • Titans need only 2 sets to win...

    This Collins volleyball team has already accomplished something last year’s squad never did.

    The Titans have swept rival Shelby County in two sets.

    Collins topped the host Rockets, 25-15, 25-15, Tuesday evening at Mike Casey Gymnasium. The Titans won all three meetings last season – including the 30th District final – during their inaugural 22-3 campaign, but all three victories came in three sets. 

  • Balanced Titans fall just short

    Earlier this month the Scott County boys’ golf team beat Collins by 36 shots in the 2-day season-opening Flyer Classic.

    The Cardinals won the tournament with a collective score of 587, and the Titans tied for 10th-place with a 623.

    Monday evening, though, Collins closed the gap considerably, falling by just three strokes (155-158) in a Central Kentucky Conference match at Shelbyville Country Club.

  • SCHS boys’ soccer team loses one...

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team bounced back from a 4-2 loss to Fern Creek this past Saturday by tying Louisville Butler, 2-2, Monday night.

    Against the Tigers, the host Rockets fell behind. 2-1. in the first half before rallying to tie the match three minutes before halftime on Raul Lopez’s goal.

    “We’ve got to learn how to come out in day games ready to play,” first-year Shelby County Coach Tony Wood said afterward. “We came out flat.”

  • Fast start, futile finish as...

    Where the Collins football team played Friday night didn’t matter as much as whom the Titans played.

    Led by senior quarterback Thomas Wilson, visiting Meade County scored 19 consecutive second-half points to rally for a 33-25 victory over Collins in the season-opener for both at the Titans’ 2011 “home” field, Shelby County’s Robert Doyle Stadium.

  • Brown continues record run

    It’s been a great golf season for Brandon Brown, to say the least.

    But this past weekend may have been the greatest.

    The Shelbyville resident won his fourth NGA/Hooters Tour event of the season, capturing the $200,000 Mississippi Gulf Coast Classic. He shot a final-round, 7-under-par 65 at The Oaks Golf Club in Pass Christian, Miss. to finish the 4-day tournament with a collective 25-under 263 to win by six shots.
