  • Anderson rolls through Shelby

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball had its season ended, 49-26, at the hands of Anderson County on Tuesday night in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament.

    The Bearcats (23-7) used a stifling press defense throughout the entire game to trap Shelby’s ball-handlers and force numerous turnovers.

    “On the offensive end their [Anderson’s] pressure of course bothers you,” Rockets coach Jason Holland said. “But we also didn’t shoot the ball very well, and some of that is on us.”

  • Boyle County runs past Collins

    While Saturday night’s matchup between the Collins girls’ basketball team and Boyle County counted for little outside of wins and losses, the game went a long way in preparing the Titans for the upcoming 30th District Tournament.

    With a matchup against Spencer County on the docket for tonight, coach Sean Pigman was determined to get his team into action against a top-tier guard.

    Boyle (16-13) was ready to oblige with Utah State commit Emmie Harris.

  • CAL rides hot shooting to win...

    A white-hot shooting night for Christian Academy-Louisville from behind the arc led to the Collins boys’ basketball team taking a tough loss Friday.

    The Centurions (21-9) drained eight of 14 attempts from deep, 57 percent, for the game.

    CAL also rode point guard Michael Woodward late, as Woodward finished the night a perfect 7-of-7 from the field, including nine points from behind the arc and five points in the final four minutes of regulation.

  • 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.
