  • Titans welcome West Jessamine in...

    Collins will open its quest for a 4A State Championship tonight, when it welcomes West Jessamine to Shelbyville beginning at 7:30 p.m.

    Behind a stout running game, the Colts (6-4) opened the season strong at 5-2 before coming up short in recent weeks and finishing its season 1-2 in the final three games.

    Dual-threat quarterback Jacob Humes, who has rushed for 435 yards this season along with a team-leading six scores on the ground, leads West’s offense.

  • Shelby travels to take on Taylor...

    As Shelby County tries to leave its two-game losing streak behind, the Rockets will travel to Campbellsville to take on a strong running Taylor County team.

    The Cardinals (7-3) are much like Shelby, electing to keep the ball on the ground for a majority of its plays.

    Taylor, as a unit, has run for 226 yards per game this season, led by halfback Wes Oliver.

    The freshman has been a standout for the Cards, rushing for 95 yards per game and a whopping 18 touchdowns in the run-heavy scheme.

  • Titans fend off Pulaski County

    A strong defensive performance mixed with some miserable weather conditions led to an ideal performance from Collins on Friday night, as the Titans defeated the visiting Pulaski County 17-6.

    The Titans (8-2), along with a driving rain, limited the usually high-volume passing attack of the Maroons (4-6), as Collins held Pulaski quarterback Matt Hendricks to just 34 yards on 17 attempts and picked off Hendricks twice to give itself short fields offensively.

  • South Oldham shuts out Shelby...

    Shelby County football took a rough loss at the hands of South Oldham in Crestwood on Friday night, with the Dragons coming away with the 42-0 win.

    SCHS (6-4) committed four turnovers in the loss, which were turned into scores at the other end by the Dragons (9-1).

    Shelby struggled to shut down running back Keaton Martin of South, as the sophomore compiled 266 yards on 20 touches – 13.3 yards per carry – and four touchdowns to defeat the Rockets.

  • Collins boys take 2nd at region...

    It was a day of top performances at the Region 3 Class AA cross-country meet Saturday at North Oldham High School, as Collins and Shelby each turned in strong outings in team competition.

    In the boys’ competition, it was the Titans coming in as runner-ups as a team, finishing just behind North Oldham.

    Collins’ runners Cole Lyles, Jeremy Yocum and Nolan Thomas each slotted in at ninth, 10th and 11th respectively in the individual standings and helping lead the Titans boys to its top finish.

  • Oldham County eliminates Shelby...

    A tough loss to perennial 8th Region runner-up Oldham County ended Shelby County’s volleyball campaign on Wednesday night, as the Rockets fell in four sets to the Colonels.

    “It was the best way to go out,” SCHS coach Kristen Kapp said. “If we weren’t going to win, that would be the way to go out.”

    OC (23-12) jumped out to an early lead in the first set and rode that deficit to a 25-17 opening frame victory.

  • Collins falls to North Oldham in...

    Collins volleyball fought hard against opponent North Oldham on Wednesday night, but it was not enough to overcome the Mustangs, as the Titans season ended in a four-set loss to North.

    Following a slow first set that saw the Mustangs (26-7) close out Collins 25-12; the Titans kicked it into gear in the final three sets of play.

    “I was a little disappointed in the way we started,” Titans coach Cary Clark said. “We hesitated out of the gate. The second set we kind of found our legs and started playing harder.”

  • Shelby County travels to face...

    Shelby County will end its season tonight with a tough test, as the Rockets travel to face off against 5A power South Oldham.

    The Dragons (8-1) have been a force on both offense and defense this season, with its lone loss coming in week one to Christian Academy-Louisville, 28-14.

    Since that game, South has been on a complete tear, outscoring its last eight opponents 359-46.

  • Collins hosts Pulaski County...

    Collins’ defensive backfield should see a good amount of work tonight, when the Titans take on a pass-heavy Pulaski County team at home.

    The Maroons (4-5) are led by junior QB Wiley Cain, who has thrown for more than 2,500 yards – 285 per game.

    Luckily for the Titans, Cain is prone to making mistakes with his throws.

    The junior has tossed 20 touchdowns to 13 interceptions so far this season, and the Pulaski quarterback has also been hampered by the lack of a consistent rushing attack.

  • Titans haul in district title

    Behind four second-quarter touchdown passes by senior quarterback J.R. Lucas, Collins went up big early and eventually cruised to a 38-19 victory over rival Shelby County, taking the District 4 crown in the process.

    “Of course it always feels good to beat your rival team, but all that really matters is that we won the district,” J.R. Lucas said after the game. “We get that home advantage in the playoffs, but I have a lot of buddies [on Shelby County] too, it’s always fun to beat them.”
