  • 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.

  • Collins faces familiar foe in...

    To borrow a phrase from the famous Yogi Berra, “It’s déjà vu all over again” for the Collins Titans as the 2016 KHSAA Class 4A playoffs get underway this week.

    Collins will travel to Western High School to face the Warriors Friday.

    “They are really big and loaded with athletes all over the field,” Collins quarterback J.R. Lucas said. “They always are. It’ll be a good game, like the times we’ve played them before.”

  • North Oldham eliminates Collins...

    The Collins High School volleyball team had its season ended by a visiting North Oldham squad on Wednesday night.

    “I think we came out hesitant right off the bat,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “We got down early in all three sets to be quite honest. Once we got into the game and started competing, I thought we played really tough with them. But you give a good team like that a lead like we did, it made it really difficult to come back.”

  • Rockets face undefeated South...

    Tonight, the Shelby County High School football team will look to extend its winning streak to nine straight games when the Rockets (8-1) welcome South Oldham to Robert Doyle Stadium.

    The Rockets are 4-0 this season when playing at home, and are outscoring opponents by a combined 185-61 in those four contests.

    That home record will be tested when an undefeated Dragons team (9-0) comes to town.

  • Collins looks to bounce back...

    The Collins High School football team will look to rebound tonight when it welcomes a visiting Anderson County team to Shelbyville.

    “We obviously didn’t play very well last week,” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “We have things we think we can correct this week. Once we get into the postseason, it’s just survive and advance.”

    As expected, the Titans (5-4) sport an aerial attack that is hard for teams to compete against.
