  • Rockets take 2nd, 3rd at home...

    The 2016 cross-country season is officially underway, with Shelby County hosting its invitational over the weekend.

    On the boys’ side of things, Shelby’s Matthew Paverd finished second in the individual standings, and leading the Rockets to a second-place finish behind Lexington Catholic by an average of 25 seconds per runner.

    Paverd completed the run just eight seconds behind LC’s Carman Spencer, as the Shelby runner ended with a time of 16:23.63.

  • Rockets upend Collins, 1-0 on...

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team only controlled the first five minutes of the game against county-rival Collins Thursday, but that was all the Rockets needed for a 1-0 win in the season’s first match-up.

    Shelby’s Abelardo Ramirez took a pass from Caleb Patten, ripped a shot that bounced off a Titans defender and into the goal.

  • Collins drills Waggener, 2-0

    The Collins High School volleyball team made it two in a row defeating Waggener in two sets on Wednesday night.
    Collins easily cruised to victory over the Wildcats, winning the two sets by scores of 25-13 and 25-9.

    “I think [Waggener] is having a down year,” coach Cary Clark said. “They didn’t bring the competition they typically do. But we executed everything the way we should have and got the win.”

  • Oldham County upends Titans, 5-0

    Collins boys’ soccer dropped its fourth loss of the season on Tuesday night, falling to Oldham County 5-0.

    The Titans were able to keep Oldham at bay for a while, hanging onto a scoreless tie until late in the half.

    With less than two minutes remaining in the first, the Colonels got a solid shot on goal, beating keeper Matthew Stoltz for the first score of the game.

  • Collins, Eastern feature potent...

    After a 55-52 shootout win over Bullitt East, Collins High School will travel to Louisville tonight to take on 6A Eastern High School.

    On paper, the game looks like it could be another shootout for Collins, with both teams boasting prolific offensive attacks while struggling on defense. Last year’s contest was a shootout as well, with the Eagles picking up the 49-44 win over the Titans.

  • Rockets face Oldham in home...

    After picking up its first win of the season in a blowout, Shelby County High School will welcome old school rival Oldham County to town for the home opener tonight at 7:30.

    Last season, Shelby routed the Colonels, 43-7.

    While it’s an old rivalry, it won’t look like the bare-knuckle brawls from years past.

  • Rockets drill Grayson County, 50...

    After working on defense and fundamentals all week in practice, the Shelby County High School Rockets saw the results pay off in a big way, defeating Grayson County 50-8.

    SCHS severely limited any offense from the Cougars, allowing just 91 yards rushing and zero yards passing in the first victory of the season.

  • High-flying Titans top Bullitt...

    In a shootout that would have made Mike Leach proud, Collins High School defeated a visiting Bullitt East team by a score of 55-52 on Friday night.

    Trailing 52-48 in the final quarter, quarterback J.R. Lucas found Sam Harrod in the end zone to take the lead, and lock up the second win of the season for the Titans.

    “I think it was a great high school football game,” coach Jerry Lucas said. “If you’re an old-school, defensive-minded person, it may not have been the game for you.”

  • Collegiate slips past Titans...

    With the game knotted at 1-1 and time running out, Louisville Collegiate’s Regan Kommor put in her 17th goal of the season to defeat Collins girls’ soccer, 2-1.

    “They have a really top-notch goal scorer [in Kommor],” head coach Steve Nash said. “Overall, I think we played well, and I feel like we’re real close to winning some of these close matches.”

    The Amazons jumped on Collins late in the first half, thanks to Kommor’s 16th goal of the season as time was running out.

  • Rockets take their best shot at...

    At Thursday’s tri-meet, the Shelby County girls’ golf team defeated both Henry County and Collins high schools, but it was one of the Rockets that took a beating.

    Shelby’s Jenna Lewis and Lilly Young tied for the team-high score, with each shooting 41. A ball on the No. 5 hole struck Lewis, who gutted out the final four holes of play, and tied Young for the team-leading score.
