  • Lady Rockets hammer Spencer

    The Shelby County High School girl’s basketball team beat their opponent, beat the storm and kept their No. 1 seed in the district tournament hopes alive with a 56-39 drubbing of Spencer County Thursday.

    “We just wanted to get the game in and not get it pushed back,” Shelby County coach Jason Holland said. “It really had no implication on the seeding once we won. It does keep our chances alive of being the top seed if Collins can upset Anderson County Friday.”

  • Lady Rockets roll by Moore

    After the snow kept them out of the gym for three days the Shelby County High School girls’ basketball team shook a little rust off Monday with a 66-22 win over Louisville Moore.

    With the frontline combining for 43 points, the Rockets (17-3) took control of the game early and then used their defense to limit the Mustangs to just 8 second half points en route to getting a running clock in the final quarter.

  • Lady Rockets fall to Anderson

    Not much went right on Anderson County's final possession last Tuesday, but the Lady Bearcats will take it.

    Trailing archrival Shelby County, 50-49, with 23 seconds to play, Anderson came out of a timeout with what seemed to be a game-winning strategy – point guard Mia Aldridge was to drive the lane for a layup or get fouled. At least that was the first option.

    But when Shelby dropped into a zone, the path to the basket was closed. Aldridge rifled a pass to Kaci Currens, who had hit just 2-of-9 three-point shots on the night, in the left corner.

  • Lady Titans drop a pair of games

    Playing their third game in four days and coming off an emotionally and physically draining win over arch rival Shelby County the Collins High School girls’ basketball team dropped a couple of tough games last week.

    The Titans (11-8) fell to Oldham County 57-56 on a last second shot and then dropped a road game 78-54 to a strong East Jessamine team.

  • Lady Titans edge Shelby in...

    After turning in one of the best games of her career to lead the Collins girls’ basketball team to a 56-54 double overtime win over Shelby County, Michelle Roberts wanted to praise her younger teammates.

    “They can all shoot and that made the difference for us,” Roberts said. “I know it makes my job a lot easier.”

    Roberts, a senior guard, scored 20 points for Collins, but it was a pair of assists to a pair of freshmen guards – Jeian Hayes and Carson Murray – who buried key 3-pointers during the game to spark the Titans.

  • Rockets hold off Titans

    Tyler Drane learned a thing or two about pace as the quarterback of the Shelby County High School football team that won the regional title but establishing and controlling pace is just what Drane and the Rockets’ basketball team needed to edge rival Collins 48-44 Friday.

    “We kind of did play their pace, but we did win the game and that’s what counts,” Drane said. “We knew they wanted to play a little slower than we do and that they could shoot the ball well. We just wanted to play good defense and not make many mistakes.”

  • Collins girls hold off Walton-...

    It’s a simple plan for the Collins High School girls’ basketball team.

    “Free throws and threes,” Collins senior guard Michelle Roberts said. “When we make those we can win.” 

    With head coach Sean Pigman out with an illness, the Titans made plenty of both for assistant coach Henry Cottle, pulling off a 69-64 upset of Walton-Verona Monday.

  • Titans beat Anderson County

    When it counted, the right players came through for the Collins as the Titans beat Anderson County 53-50 Saturday.

    After building a 10-point lead in the third quarter, the Titans (6-7) withstood a strong comeback by Anderson County with some clutch plays in the final minutes to gain their third straight win.

    “We came out with the attitude we were going to win,” Collins guard Jakson Test said. “We want to keep this going. We want every one to hold themselves accountable, to play well, I think we are getting it now.”

  • Rockets beat Scott in Eastern...

    On a day when they needed some big plays at the end, the Shelby County High School boys’ basketball team found them to beat Scott High School 74-63 and take fifth place in the City of Middletown Holiday Classic at Eastern.

    After building a pair of big leads only to see the Eagles fight their way back into the game, the Rockets (5-9) dominated the overtime period outscoring Scott 16-5 to win.

  • Lady Rockets win tourney


    It didn’t come easy, but the Shelby County Rockets found a way to win, beating Western Hills 56-55 to win the Community Trust Bank Invitational in Frankfort for the second year in a row.

    “We played well in spots, well enough at the end,” Shelby County coach Jason Holland said. “Western Hills played very well. They made a lot of threes and shot it well overall. We were lucky to escape out of there with a win.”
