  • Shelby closes regular season...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team got a complete performance on both sides of the ball to close out its regular season with a win at Gallatin County on Thursday.

    The Rockets (7-21) logged four players in double-figures scoring, holding on to defeat the Wildcats (17-12) 58-52.

    T.J. Robinson led SCHS with 16 points, while Jordan Armstrong and Tre’ Stalnaker each chipped in 13.

  • DeSales makes late push past...

    For three-and-a-half quarters, it looked as if the Shelby County boys’ basketball team was going to pull off an upset of DeSales on Senior Night.

    The Rockets (6-21) had held the visitors to just three baskets from behind the arc on 16 attempts, and was tied with the Colts (17-10) at 42 with less than six minutes to play.

    But a late push led by guard Jaxson Burgess lifted DeSales past SCHS, 63-54.

  • Collins dominates Central Hardin

    It didn’t take long for the Collins girls’ basketball team to take the lead over Central Hardin on Tuesday night, and the team kept that momentum up for a full 32 minutes.

    The Titans (18-11) jumped out to an 11-0 lead in just two minutes, and never looked back, stomping the Bruins (13-13) by a final score of 47-26.

    Collins’ dominance on Tuesday was not overly flashy; opting for a slower, more methodical pace on offense, combined with immense pressure on the defensive end.

  • Shelby guts out win at Ballard

    Following Shelby County’s 52-34 win at Ballard on Tuesday night, Rockets’ head coach Jason Holland was not happy with his team.

    Despite the 18 points separating his team and the Bruins (8-15), the coach found many flaws in his team’s final regular season performance.

  • SC, Collins swimmers qualify for...

    Both the Shelby County and Collins swim teams will send athletes to the State Meet for the second consecutive season.

    The Rockets and Titans each competed well at the 6th Region swim meet held at Woodford County High School in Versailles.

    “The teams swam awesome,” coach Tom Coons said. “We had sixty-nine personal best times in sevnty-seven swims. I am very pleased with everyone’s performances.”

  • Collins drops back-to-back games

    The Collins High School boys’ basketball team entered the weekend with tough sledding ahead of them in matchups against both St. Xavier and DeSales.

    In Saturday’s matchup against St. X (16-10) the brutal 10-game stretch of away games finally came to an end, with a home matchup against the Tigers.

    But the friendly confines weren’t enough to push the Titans (19-9) to a victory in its first game back since Jan. 9, falling by a narrow margin of 48-45 to the Tigers.

  • Rockets snap streak against...

    Although it was not as lopsided as the previous matchup between the two teams, the Shelby County boys’ basketball team did enough to top Henry County 55-50 on Friday night.

    The win snaps a nine-game losing streak for the Rockets, and could be key for the team’s confidence moving forward into the postseason.

  • Collins rolls East Jessamine

    In Friday’s matchup with East Jessamine, the Collins girls’ basketball team was able to both get its bench players some in-game situations and work one of its starters back in after a three-game injury rest.

    The Titans (17-11) had no problem outscoring the Jaguars (1-23) on the way to a 61-29 home win on Friday night.

  • Shelby drops OT game to Trimble

    Defending Trimble County’s methodical offense was an exercise in patience for the Shelby County girls’ basketball team on Wednesday night, as the Rockets fell 43-41 in overtime.

    Up 41-40 with less than a minute left in OT, Raiders’ center Shelbe Black made a backdoor cut into the paint and sank an easy layup to hand visiting Trimble (19-4) the tight one-point lead.

  • Spencer outruns Shelby in...

    For the first three quarters of action, Tuesday night’s matchup between Shelby County boys’ basketball and Spencer County was tight. But by the time the fourth quarter rolled around, the Bears had found a way to break the Rockets’ press and hand Shelby the 72-57 loss.

    Spencer (17-7, 2-1 district) jumped out to a hot start from the field against SCHS (5-20, 0-5) and pulled out to 12-point lead over the Rockets.
