  • Rockets take on Atherton

    Shelby County High School hosts its home opener tonight with a matchup against a second consecutive Louisville team in Atherton.

    The Rebels (0-1) struggled to score points on offense last week, with its offensive woes extending all the way back to last season, when it finished the season with a 3-7 overall record.

    The Rockets expect to see a Wing-T offense from Atherton, similar to the offense that district foe Spencer County has run for years.

  • Titans fall to North Oldham in...

    In the Titans’ Tuesday night loss to North Oldham, the Mustangs showed Collins what it takes to compete with some of the best that 8th Region volleyball has to offer.

    The Titans (4-1) took a tough straight set loss at home to North, with the visiting team showcasing its athletic ability.

  • Shelby County runs over Fairdale

    With several new starters stepping in for Shelby County football, it was unknown how that lack of experience would translate in the Rockets’ season-opener at Fairdale.

    The game was smooth sailing for Shelby’s offense, as the team racked up 466 yards of total offense in the 49-12 shellacking of the Bulldogs.

    The Rockets quickly jumped out to a 28-12 lead at the half, and never allowed Fairdale to reach the end zone again.

    Senior fullback Caleb Morehead led a Rockets’ rushing attack that gained 404 yards on the ground in the win.

  • Titans air out Madison Southern...

    Collins football was looking to keep to its high-scoring ways from last season, and in the process reestablished itself as one of the preeminent offenses in all of 4A football on Saturday night.

    In game one of the Roy Kidd Bowl, the Titans dominated Madison Southern 38-7 to move to 1-0 this season.

    And while the offense lit up the scoreboard, head coach Jerry Lucas said he saw his defense shine as well.

  • Titans, Rockets compete at Joy...

    Both Collins and Shelby County high schools saw their girls’ golf programs compete against top-flight golf teams on Saturday, as the two schools joined 22 other squads for the Joy of Golf Invitational at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course in Lawrenceburg.

    The Rockets earned a top-five finish as a unit with a team score of 350, just 30 strokes back of winner Green County.

  • Shelby splits 2 weekend matches...

    Shelby County’s volleyball team has taken on some formidable opponents over the course of its opening week, and should be better and more experienced in the long run for it.

    After dropping a match to Oldham County Thursday night in straight sets, the Rockets took on both Walton-Verona and Simon Kenton, splitting those matches to close the weekend.

    Shelby County 2, Walton-Verona 0

    The Rockets closed Saturday’s doubleheader at Walton with a shutout win over the host school, bringing Shelby’s record to 2-2 on the year.

  • Cougars outlast Shelby

    Shelby County’s girls’ soccer team will be searching for a reliable source of offense after taking a tough 1-0 loss to Bullitt Central on Saturday morning.

    The Rockets and Cougars each put several shots on goal throughout the contest, with BCHS finding the back of the net in the second half, and moving Shelby to 0-2 on the season.

    “I’m not really sure what to say about my team yet,” Rockets coach Joe Turner said. “I wasn’t happy that we lost, but we did play a little better.”

  • Titans rally to top Eastern

    The Collins boys’ soccer team fought hard to earn its season-opening win over Eastern High School on Tuesday night.

    With time running out in regulation, and the Titans looking to avoid a draw to open the year, junior forward Jack Sanford found the back of the net with two minutes remaining in the contest, sealing the 4-3 win over the Eagles and moving Collins to 1-0 on the season.

  • Shelby opens season at Fairdale

    With the opening game of the 2017 season just one day away, Shelby County football will look to march into Louisville and come up with a win over a Fairdale team that struggled last season.

    The Bulldogs mustered a 3-8 record in 2016, and struggled to stop opposing offenses.

    Enter Shelby, a team that runs one of the most efficient rushing attacks around.

  • Titans take on Madison Southern

    The Collins football team will look to kick its season off on a high note when it faces Madison Southern Saturday night in the opening contest of the Roy Kidd Bowl.

    The Titans are expecting a tough opponent in the Eagles, which compiled a record of 8-4 last season before falling to North Bullitt in the second round of the 5A State Football Playoffs.

    “I’m very excited for the game on Saturday,” Titans coach Jerry Lucas said. “They are an excellent football team, and are really good at what they do on both sides of the ball.”
