  • Karas tabbed as 2A athlete of...

    It certainly has been a tumultuous 2016 for star Collins High School runner Gabriella Karas.

    Despite not being able to compete in the regional or state meets this season due to injury, Karas was named the Female Student-Athlete of the Year in AA cross country by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association on Saturday.

    “My coach [Sean Roberts] told me about it just two days before,” Karas said. “I was very surprised that I was chosen and thankful [Roberts] entered me for this award.”

  • Collins draws Western in playoff...

    Collins High School will open its 2016 postseason campaign against a team it is used to seeing in the playoffs: Western High School.

    “We’ve been just sticking to the routine and doing things like we have been doing them,” Collins quarterback J.R. Lucas said. “We need to treat it like just another game, and not overthink it, and do what we do everyday.”

    Western (4-6) has had a rough go of it this season, with four of its six losses coming by 30 or more points.

  • Shelby County faces off against...

    The Shelby County High School football team will welcome Breckinridge County to town tonight, marking the opening round of the Class 4A playoffs.

    The Tigers (2-8) have had a rough season, defeating only Todd County Central and Hancock County in 10 contests.
    Not a great sign for a team that was blown out by Shelby 55-6 in 2015.

  • Former Titan Cochran returns to...

    Although he grew up bleeding Cardinals red, Shelbyville-native Deion Cochran is looking forward to taking the court for Asbury University at Rupp Arena this Sunday.

    The Eagles face off against the University of Kentucky, ranked No. 2 in the Associated Press preseason poll, at 7 p.m.

    “I was rooting for Louisville growing up,” Cochran said. “I’m excited for the moment. We are planning on going out there and just playing hard.”

  • Shelby Storm captures league...

    If the level of youth football being played in Shelbyville is a sign of things to come, both Shelby County and Collins high schools will be loaded with talent in the future.

    Each of the three youth football teams went to the playoffs in their respective age groups, with the seven-and-under team taking home the championship trophy and finishing the season unbeaten.

  • Collins to host second annual...

    For the second consecutive year, both the boys and girls basketball teams at Collins High School will host a ‘Meet the Titans’ event.

     “This is our second year doing Meet the Titans,” boys basketball coach Chris Gaither said. “My director of basketball operations, Kevin Perdue, organized the event for us last season and is working to make it even better this year.”

    The event will take place on next Wednesday, and will allow fans and parents to get acquainted with the members of both basketball teams.

  • Rockets take region crown from...

    Both Shelby County and Collins high schools will advance their boys and girls’ cross country teams to the KHSAA Class 2A State Meet after qualifying in the regional meet Saturday.

    In the boys’ meet, Shelby finished first overall as a team, defeating North Oldham, the defending region and state champion, by three points to earn the Region 3 championship.

  • Shelby slays undefeated Dragons

    As the old saying goes, one play can help decide an entire football game.

    The Shelby County High School football team found out that was true when defensive lineman Drew Mack blocked an extra point in the first quarter of Friday’s 33-32 win over South Oldham.

  • Titans fly past Bearcats, 41-21

    The Collins High School football team honored its seniors’ final home game with a 41-21 defeat of Anderson County on Friday night.

    And one of the Titans’ seniors came up huge in the win.

    Payton Hawk hauled in five balls for 130 yards and three scores to give Collins (6-4) its sixth win of the year.

    “It feels great [to catch three touchdowns on senior night],” Hawk said. “It feels amazing. I think we did a great job of executing that our game plan tonight.”

  • Morehead hit the ground running

    In the Shelby County Rockets’ triple-option offense every runner is a threat to break away, aiding in the misdirection caused from fake handoffs.

    But none have been more valuable than the fullback, or ‘b-back’ whose job it is to pick up the tough yards between the tackles.

    With the graduation of Malik Manica, junior Caleb Morehead has seized that role this season, all while leading the team in rushing, despite having missed one game due to injury.
