  • Buchert living 'a dream...

    Nick Buchert’s realization that he had realized his dream came with a tap on the shoulder.

    He turned around to find LeBron James standing in front of him.

    “He said, ‘Hey Nick, my name is LeBron James,’” Buchert recalled.

  • Collins vs. Madison Central:...

    It was back to basics last week for the Collins High School football team, and back to business as usual this week.

    The Titans spent their bye week – during which they won their district – working on “fundamentals,” Coach Jerry Lucas said. 

    This week Collins, which is No. 6 in Class AAAA in this week’s Associated Press Top 10, has been preparing for tonight’s 7:30 p.m. regular-season finale at 6A Madison Central while trying not to ponder the postseason, which begins next week.

  • Cresap's six TDs lead...




    Branden Cresap threw six touchdown passes in the first three quarters to lead the Collins High School football team to a 49-21 win at Madison Central in its regular-season finale Friday night in Richmond.

    The senior quarterback completed 19 of 27 passes for 412 yards with touchdowns of 8, 62, 60, 33, 35 and 74 yards and engineered the Titans to TDs on their first seven drives of the game.

  • Colonels drop Rockets 35-19

    Oldham County’s Brett Leary rushed for 225 yards and four touchdowns, while Shelby County committed five turnovers, as the Colonels ended the Rockets’ season with a 35-19 victory Friday night at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    Leary rushed for 220 of those yards, and all of his touchdowns, in the first half as Oldham County built a 28-7 lead. The Rockets rallied to outscore the Colonels 12-7 in the second half, but it wasn’t enough.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Colonels down Rockets

    BUCKNER -- After losing most of her 2009 region semifinalist team to graduation and to the new cross-town school, Shelby County volleyball coach Felicia Pace kept her goals simple this season.

    “Our season goal was to make it to the regional tournament, so I have to say I am proud of that,” Pace said. “We reached our first goal.”

    The Rockets’ season ended Tuesday evening when they lost to host, and 18th-ranked, Oldham County, 25-7, 25-17, in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament.

  • Oldham at SCHS: Rockets hope to...

    As he walked off the field at Southern High School, just few minutes after his team’s first victory of the season, the mind of Shelby County football coach Todd Shipley was already in motion.

    “This gives us a shot of adrenaline for next week,” he said.

    “Next week” is now tonight for Shipley and his Rockets (1-8), who host Oldham County (5-4) at 7:30 p.m.

  • Karas first, Webb second at...

    Collins’ Caterina Karas and Shelby County’s Taylor Webb finished 1-2 Saturday at the 18th annual DeSales Invitational at McNeely Lake Park in Louisville.

    Karas, the Titans' junior who sat out last week’s meet, won the 5,000-meter race in 18 minutes, 49 seconds.

    “Caterina Karas ran what I thought was her best race of the year,” Collins Coach Stephen Drawbaugh said. “She did not have anyone to push her but she still ran a fast time.”

  • Oldham 35, SCHS 19: Colonels end...

    In many ways Friday night was a microcosm of the season for the Shelby County High School football team.


    There were some highs and some lows, but more of the latter and not enough of the former in Oldham County’s 35-19 victory over the Rockets at Robert Doyle Stadium.


    Colonel Brett Leary rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns in the first half, and Shelby County committed five turnovers in its season finale and on Senior Night.


  • Regional volleyball: Dragons...

    BUCKNER -- The Collins High School volleyball team got the match-up it wanted in the Eighth Region Tournament.

    Just not the result.

  • EARLIER: SCHS 36, Southern 32

    LOUISVILLE -- The tears of joy that left streaks on Quinten Cottrell’s cheeks said it all - Shelby County finally had won a football game.

    Cottrell scored three touchdowns and shook off a late fumble to help the Rockets’ defense preserve the team’s first victory of the season – 36-32 at Southern on a smoky Friday night.
