  • Stone primed to repeat in state...

    This season has been a different one for Shelby County’s Kyrien Stone, but going from a raw athlete to a defending state champion in two different track and field events will make that happen.

    Stone recently showed his prowess in the triple and long jump events at last weekend’s Eastern Relays, also known as the biggest regular season meet in the state.

    The senior took first in the triple jump event at the University of Louisville on April 22 with a distance of 45-feet, 9-inches, nearly a foot better than the second-place finisher.

  • North Oldham scores late to top...

    While both Shelby County and North Oldham were struggling to put up timely hits amid fantastic pitching performances, it was the Mustangs that came through late for the victory.

    North Oldham (10-6) eventually broke the scoreless tie in the top of the sixth, opening up a 2-0 lead with back-to-back RBIs on a double and a triple.

    Shelby (6-10-1) could never quite find its footing in the batter’s box, logging just two hits all game until NOHS ultimately walked away with the close shutout win.

  • Goodlett guides Collins past...

    Both Collins and Shelby County’s baseball teams were searching for some sort of advantage in Monday’s 30th District matchup.

    The two squads spent the first five innings locked in a scoreless tie, until Titans shortstop Drew Goodlett stepped to the plate with runners on second and third and gave Collins that advantage.

  • Collins picks up walk off win...

    When Collins softball needed two runs to overcome a 5-4 deficit in the bottom of the seventh inning, third baseman Allyson Long was happy to oblige.

    Long drove in two runners on a single to seal the walk-off and the second district win of the season for the Titans, 6-5.

    “What I liked is that our girls did not give up,” Collins coach Charlie LeCompte said after the win. “They kept poking away, poking away. We had several girls with big hits and we ran the bases well. I like my team, I’m pleased.”

  • Shelby outlasts North Bullitt

    While Shelby County softball was set to play multiple games at the Capital City Showcase over the weekend, the Rockets only contest ended with a 7-4 win over North Bullitt.

    SCHS (6-6-1) was powered at the plate by second baseman Loran Trent, who collected three hits and two RBIs in four plate appearances Friday.

    Trent was also a part of a late rally that allowed the Rockets to power past the Eagles (3-12).

  • Collins scores late to top CAL

    With both teams tied at two runs apiece, Collins baseball’s Thursday contest against Christian Academy-Louisville turned on a late mistake by the Centurions.

    Catcher Zane Baker crossed home plate on a wild pitch by CAL thrower Luke Price that proved to be the winning run for the Titans (14-10).

    The game showed the base running prowess of Collins, as the Titans scored all three of its runs on wild pitches or stolen bases.

  • Rockets split Louisville games...

    Shelby County baseball’s Friday contest against DeSales ended in stark contrast from the high-scoring game the night before.

    While the Rockets (10-10-1) piled up 20 runs against Doss on Thursday, the Friday showdown against the Colts (10-10) was much more of a pitcher’s duel, with SCHS taking a 1-0 loss.

    DeSales plated its one and only run in the bottom of the fifth, scoring on a double.

  • Titans late rally stopped short

    While the first and last innings may have been successful ones for Collins softball, very little went right between.

    From the second until the sixth frames, Anderson scored nine of its 10 runs and halted a late Titans (15-6-1, 1-1 district) rally that came a bit too late in a 10-6 loss on Wednesday.

    Defeating Anderson County (9-6, 2-0 district) is as much of a mindset as it is actual performance, according to Collins’ head coach.

  • SCHS splits with Anderson

    SCHS closed its district-opening series on Tuesday night with a 7-3 home win over the visiting Bearcats.

    The offense was significantly more aggressive than it was the night before, racking up 13 hits and jumping on Anderson (8-6) early.

    Shelby’s biggest offensive inning came in the bottom of the third while up 1-0.

    The Rockets (9-9-1) tallied up a double and five singles in the frame to jump up 5-0 and put the pressure on the Bearcats to score.

  • Collins sweeps series with...

    A pair of top-notch pitching performances in as many days allowed Collins baseball to pick up its first district wins of the 2017 season.

    Cameron Mattingly’s outing capped off the sweep with a 6-2 victory on Tuesday night over Spencer.

    The junior pitcher took to the hill, going six full innings while allowing just four hits and an earned run while striking out five batters in his fourth win of the year.
