  • Titans, Rockets compete at state...

    Both Shelby County and Collins high schools took part in the KHSAA Class AA State cross-country meet on Saturday at Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    In the girls’ competition, Shelby County finished 20th as a team behind champion Highlands, while Collins slotted in at 22nd as a group.

    Led by senior Anna Kiser’s 24th-place finish in 20:42.50, the Rockets finished with a top-20 outing in team competition.

    Junior Evelyn Enriquez turned in the second-best time for Shelby at the state meet, taking 56th in a time of 21:44.97.

  • At the top of the Hill

    Making the transition from high school to college football can be a tough one, but Western Kentucky University defenders DeAndre Farris and Masai Whyte are making it look easy.

    The two former Collins players have helped the Hilltoppers compile a record of 5-4 this season, with WKU tied for third in Conference USA (3-2).

    Western’s pass defense ranks 24th in the country this season, allowing opponents to throw for just 187 yards per game, in large part due to a defensive back in Farris and Whyte, one of the team’s two starting linebackers.

  • Rockets rally past Taylor

    Second-half comebacks are becoming second nature to Shelby County this season.

    With 24 minutes left in regulation, the Rockets (7-4) rallied from down 21-10 in the third quarter, outscoring host Taylor County 28-14 over the final two quarters of play and advancing to the second round of the KHSAA 4A State Playoffs on Friday with a 38-28 win.

  • Collins D is key against Colts

    Another strong defensive performance from Collins combined with a rapid-fire offensive attack left West Jessamine searching for answers in the Titans’ 34-13 home playoff win over the Colts on Friday night.

    West quarterback Jacob Humes was picked off three times in the loss, and while the Colts were able to rack up 306 yards of total offense, 70 of those came from a single second quarter carry by running back Jamesy Swentzel.

  • Shelby boys take the lead for...

    A strong returning group of boys and a growing class of girls should provide Shelby County with high expectations heading into the swim season.

    Led by the duo of senior Logan Kessinger and junior Sean Gilpatrick, the Shelby swim team made up of 14 athletes will look to make a splash in team competition this season.

    Kessinger and Gilpatrick gave the Rockets its presence at the KHSAA State Swim Meet last season, and will be looking to build on that outing this year, according to head coach Tom Coons.

  • Titan swimming sets eyes on...

    Collins swimming returns several athletes from both its boys and girls teams this season, and will look to use its depth to make a run to the KHSAA State Swim Meet later this winter.

    The Titans boast 35 swimmers from both sets of teams, including having its entire boys team return from last year.

  • Clark helps lead team to Holmes...

    Although the high school golf season wrapped up a month ago, Shelby County freshman Grace Clark is staying busy on the links.

    Most recently, Clark helped Team Kentucky in its quest for the J.B. Holmes Cup in a match play event held in Campbellsville over the weekend.

    “I feel like I played pretty good, [at the Holmes Cup],” she said. “It was a fun event, and we went out to show the other team what we’re made of.”

    Clark and Team Kentucky competed against Team J.B. Holmes, made up of golfers from the Campbellsville area.

  • Titans welcome West Jessamine in...

    Collins will open its quest for a 4A State Championship tonight, when it welcomes West Jessamine to Shelbyville beginning at 7:30 p.m.

    Behind a stout running game, the Colts (6-4) opened the season strong at 5-2 before coming up short in recent weeks and finishing its season 1-2 in the final three games.

    Dual-threat quarterback Jacob Humes, who has rushed for 435 yards this season along with a team-leading six scores on the ground, leads West’s offense.

  • Shelby travels to take on Taylor...

    As Shelby County tries to leave its two-game losing streak behind, the Rockets will travel to Campbellsville to take on a strong running Taylor County team.

    The Cardinals (7-3) are much like Shelby, electing to keep the ball on the ground for a majority of its plays.

    Taylor, as a unit, has run for 226 yards per game this season, led by halfback Wes Oliver.

    The freshman has been a standout for the Cards, rushing for 95 yards per game and a whopping 18 touchdowns in the run-heavy scheme.

  • Titans fend off Pulaski County

    A strong defensive performance mixed with some miserable weather conditions led to an ideal performance from Collins on Friday night, as the Titans defeated the visiting Pulaski County 17-6.

    The Titans (8-2), along with a driving rain, limited the usually high-volume passing attack of the Maroons (4-6), as Collins held Pulaski quarterback Matt Hendricks to just 34 yards on 17 attempts and picked off Hendricks twice to give itself short fields offensively.
