  • Good half does not equal a good...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team played one of its best halves of the season Friday night.

    Unfortunately for the Titans it was followed up by one of their not-so-great third quarters.

    Host Bullitt East outscored Collins, 30-11, in the third period on its way to a 78-59 victory Friday night.

  • Titans play close with top team

    The Collins girls’ basketball team went toe-to-toe with the best defensive team in the state and one of the top teams in the 8th Region on Monday night.

    The Titans, however, came up just short – literally – in a 39-37 loss to Owen County.

    Collins had two chances to tie the game in the final 13 seconds, but Aaliyah Wells’ pull-up jumper spun in and out, then Leeara Cardwell’s last-second shot came up slightly short.

  • 5th Region power too much for...

    The John Hardin boys’ basketball team showed why it was the last unbeaten squad in the state Saturday night.

    The Bulldogs used superior quickness, inside muscle and some carelessness by Collins to take down the host Titans, 69-53.

    "They're very quick. It was tough to stop their penetration," Collins Coach Curtis Turley said. "Then offensively we hurt ourselves even on defense because we got in too big of a hurry and turned it over, and with their speed, they were able to score off our mistakes."

  • Rockets’ Homecoming ruined by...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team was buried by a barrage of 3-pointers Friday night.

    Oldham County’s Dylan Henderson put on a one-man shooting display in the first quarter, hitting six of those 3-poiners, to lead the Colonels to a 70-52 victory on Shelby’s Homecoming at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Henderson finished with seven 3-pointers and 33 points. He tallied 20 points in the first period, when Oldham outscored the Rockets, 33-9.

  • Rockets show their future in...

    Friday night offered Shelby County girls’ basketball fans a glimpse into the future of their team, in more ways than one.

    In their 55-27 loss to Oldham County at Mike Casey Gymnasium, the Rockets showed their youth, but they also showed flashes of their potential.

  • Both schools do well in regional...

    In their final tune-up before regionals, the Collins and Shelby County swim teams had solid showings in Saturday’s Winter Classic Invitational.

    The Rockets’ boys finished second, and their girls came in sixth at the Family Activity Center. Meanwhile the Titans took fourth on the girls’ side and sixth among the boys.

    Elizabethtown won the combined team competition with 735 points. Shelby County was third (516), and Collins finished fifth (468).

  • Frinak, Schreiner, good finish...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team wouldn’t be denied Tuesday night.

    The Rockets, coming off a two-point loss in their last game, outscored Henry County, 14-5, in overtime for their second victory of the season, 58-49, at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    “They wanted it; you could see it in their eyes,” Shelby County Coach Rick Parsons said.

    Shelby County (2-16) lost all of its early 13-point lead, then survived the Wildcats’ last-second shot attempt at the end of regulation before running away with the extra session.

  • Another slow start leads to...

    The road woes continued for the Collins boys’ basketball team Tuesday night.

    The Titans couldn’t overcome another poor start away from home as they fell 66-60 at Marion County.

    “A terrible start,” Collins Coach Curtis Turley said. “We dug ourselves too big of a hole.”

    The Knights (8-6) outscored the Titans 19-10 in the first period on their way to a 30-19 halftime lead.

  • No bull: 2 Shelby riders go for...

    Two Waddy men are hoping for the rides of their lives this weekend.

    Wade Masters and Royle Scrogham will both be competing in the SEBRA (Southern Extreme Bull Riding Association) national finals beginning tonight at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

    The two are among the Top 40 bull riders competing for the 2010 title – Scrogham has qualified ninth and Masters, 27th – heading into tonight’s first round, which begins at 8 p.m. They will be competing for $25,000 during this 3-day event.

  • EARLIER: Sharks are swimming well

    The temperatures are cold outside, but the action is hot in the swimming pool, and only getting hotter for the Shelby Sharks.

    Six Sharks represented Kentucky in the Quadrangular Championships – along with individuals from Indiana, Ohio and Michigan – Jan. 8-9 at IUPUI in Indianapolis. They were John, Maddie and Olivia Hoskins, Sam Ruble, Sydney Sell and Emma Skinner.
