  • Shelby routed by Anderson County

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team found itself in a 17-7 hole after one quarter of play on Tuesday night and no way to dig itself out.

    The divide between the two squads grew wider and wider as the game went on, with the Rockets failing to keep up with the high-powered Bearcats at both ends of the court, and SCHS (7-11, 0-5 district) fell 70-44 to Anderson (13-5, 5-0 district).

  • Former Shelby coach named to...

    Shelbyville-native Donnie Williams has long roamed the dugouts and baselines in the 8th Region, first as a player and later as a coach at Henry County and later at Shelby County.

    And last week Williams was recognized for a long successful career – which saw him win four regional titles in eight years as the skipper of the Rockets – by being named to the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame on Jan. 14.

  • Cochran’s buzzer-beater leads to...

    Thanks to the timely shooting of Collins’ Charlie Cochran, the team now boasts a 3-0 record this season over rival Shelby County.

    The junior forward’s three-pointer from the corner at the regulation buzzer knotted the score at 54 and sent the game to overtime. Collins would go on to ride that momentum to a 63-61 win at SCHS.

  • Collins holds off Shelby behind...

    As the buzzer sounded on Collins’ 43-38 victory of Shelby County in girls’ basketball Friday, fans might have felt like they just watched two different games.

    Collins’ Trinity’s Warfied sunk two free throws with three seconds left in the first half, sending the Titans to the locker room with a 16-14 lead.

    The game had shown very little offense to that point, with both teams struggling to finish at the rim and with outside shooting.

    But the second half was an entirely different story.

  • Shelby tops Warren East early...

    Despite playing well into Friday night in the clash with Collins, the Shelby County boys’ basketball team rose early Saturday morning to defeat Warren East 57-43 in the State Farm Shootout held at South Warren High School.

    A large part of the team’s win was senior guard Jordan Armstrong, who took home Player of the Game honors after scoring a team-high 12 points, including eight in the second half points to lead the Rockets (4-12) to victory over the Raiders (10-5).

  • Collins scores MLK Day win at...

    While most teams were off to enjoy the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, the Collins girls’ basketball team was earning a hard-fought 64-59 victory at Oldham County Monday night.

    Thanks to Olivia Federle’s 19-point performance, the Titans (13-8) climbed out of an early hole on the scoreboard and seized the win over the Colonels (9-8).

  • Shelby, Collins face off for 3rd...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team will not be the only team missing a key piece tonight.

    Shelby County’s Josh Edwards will begin serving his two-game suspension for an ejection tonight and will not be available for the matchup.

  • Heady named Ky. Mountain Trail,...

    After nearly two decades of both trail and long-distance running, USA Track and Field has named Shelby County resident Cynthia Heady the Kentucky Mountain Trail and Ultra Female Runner of the Year.

    “Honestly, receiving the award was more humbling than anything,” Heady said. “I just love running, and it’s neat to be recognized for it and it makes me realize how much I want to give back to the running community.”

  • Edwards to compete in second all...

    A month after being named to the Louisville Metro All-Star team for his kicking prowess, Shelby County kicker Josh Edwards will take part in the 10th annual Kentucky-Tennessee Border Bowl in Gatlinburg, Tenn. on Jan. 21.

    Edwards was a standout for SCHS during the 2016 season, handling both punting and kicking duties.

    The senior is also a member of the school’s basketball team, and at one point, was juggling practicing for two all-star games as well as the hoops squad.

  • Collins to hit road for month of...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team will face by far its toughest test on the schedule when it plays 10 straight games away from home, beginning tonight against Shelby County.

    And the Titans will face most, if not all, of the games without starters Jacob Feltner and Nick Fort, as the duo recovers from injuries.

    Both guards were injured in Friday’s 59-51 win over district foe Spencer County, with both impairments coming during the final minutes of the game.
