  • 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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.



    Tuesday night was “Meet the Rockets” night at Shelby County High School.
