  • SCHS rifle team on target

    It was a bull’s-eye of a season for the Shelby County High School rifle team.


    The Rockets’ sharpshooters recently wrapped up an undefeated season, winning state and conference championships the last two Saturdays.


    The Shelby County quartet of senior Brandon Thompson, junior Connor Davis and sophomores Heather Kirby and Keri Marlin won the Kentucky State Air Rifle Championship on Nov. 13, then on Saturday the Rockets won their conference championship for the 11th consecutive year.


  • Swimming: Two teams = one

    Despite a few noticeable differences, there really isn’t much of a contrast between the Collins and Shelby County high school swim teams.

    “The warmups, swimsuits and swim caps are different colors, but other than that, I treat it as one team. I don’t differentiate between one or the other,” said Jean Paul LaVertu, the coach of both teams.

  • Collins girls clobber Shelby

    Collins High School girls’ basketball coach Phillip Conder’s goal for Friday night’s season-opener against Shelby County was to limit the Rockets to single-digit scoring for all four quarters.

    Mission accomplished.

  • Elzy leads Titans over Rockets

    Tavis Elzy would have preferred to have been playing in the Class AAAA football final Friday night.

    But instead he was on the hardwood playing for the Collins High School boys’ basketball team.

    Nonetheless, Elzy, a 6-foot senior guard, sparked the Titans to a hot start, a 24-point halftime lead and eventually a 77-50 victory over Shelby County in the first meeting between the two schools.

  • Casey dedication 'joyful...

    Terry Hall went into his closest Tuesday and pulled out part of his past.


    Hall wore his old Shelby County High School letterman’s jacket that night to the official dedication of Mike Casey Gymnasium to honor his former teammate – the SCHS and University of Kentucky basketball star – and their 1966 state championship team.


    “This is only the second time I’ve worn this in 43 years,” Hall, a ’66 SCHS grad, said of the jacket.


  • EARLIER: Casey’s...

    It only has taken 44 years, but on Tuesday Shelby County finally will honor one of its favorite sons.


    The same building in which Mike Casey made his name known around the county and where his funeral was staged in April 2009 will bear his name when Shelby County High School officially dedicates its gymnasium and its basketball court with his signature.
