  • Late interception lifts Spencer...

    While the Collins High School (3-2, 0-1 in the district) football team put up a solid effort against district foe Spencer County (5-1, 1-0 in the district), turnovers ended up being the deciding factor.

    With 3:55 remaining in the final quarter and Collins down 35-28 to the visiting Bears, quarterback J.R. Lucas was picked off by Spencer’s Hunter Brown, who took the interception 57 yards for a touchdown.

  • Rockets run through Franklin...

    There’s no place like home.

    No team understands that mantra better than the Shelby County High School (4-2) football team, which is now 3-0 this season at Robert Doyle Stadium after dominating Franklin County (2-4) 52-18 on Friday.

    “It’s a good feeling [to win at home],” SCHS running back Brandon Davis said. “We just do it for the fans and the people that support us.”

  • Rockets could pick up a win

    Bullitt East has to be kicking itself.

    After defeating Shelby County 56-31 last Friday night for its first win of the season, the Chargers may have to forfeit the game.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association charged yesterday that Bullitt East kicker Christian Foster had not participated in enough practices to be eligible to play in her first game.

    The violation was self-reported according to Bullitt East athletic director Troy Barr.

  • Titans reel off 2 straight

    The Collins volleyball team has taken its last two opponents to the woodshed in a pair of straight set victories.

    The most recent came on Wednesday night, when the Titans traveled to Frankfort to take on Western Hills.

    Collins handled the Wolverines with ease, picking up wins of 25-12, 25-10, and 25-17 on its way to sweeping WHHS. Once again the team served at an incredibly high 93 percent rate in the win.

  • Collins faces tough test in...

    Having suffered its first loss of the season last Friday at the hands of Boyle County, Collins will look to get back to winning football this week when it welcomes Spencer County for its district opener.

    The Bears had a rocky start to the 2016 season, falling to Bardstown 29-13 in the season opener.

    But Spencer has rebounded since, winning its next four games over Nelson County, East Jessamine, Bullitt East, and Bullitt Central.

    Spencer County’s strength lies with its running backs, Brandon Leff and Kadin Smith.

  • Banged-up Shelby hosts Franklin

    After losing more than a handful of starters in a loss to Bullitt East last week, the Shelby County Rockets football team could still be missing several players tonight when Franklin County visits the Rockets at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    SCHS coach Todd Shipley said on Monday that chances are good the Rockets (3-2) will be without starters Caleb Morehead and Keshawn Catlett, who both left last Friday’s contest with head injuries.

  • Flyers soar past Collins

    Without leading goal scorer Braelyn Gantt in the lineup, the Collins girls’ soccer team struggled Wednesday night, getting shutout 9-0 at home by Franklin County.

    “Franklin played a great game,” Collins coach Steve Nash said. “We missed on a couple of early opportunities that could have changed the game, which would have allowed us a chance to jump ahead.”

    Collins could not muster much offensive success from the get-go, as the Flyers jumped out to a 5-0 lead before the end of the first half.

  • Collins, Shelby post strong...

    Both Collins and Shelby County girls’ golf teams posted stellar outings on the links in weekend tournaments.
    Saturday was a history-making day for Collins High School.

    For the first time in school history, the Titans fielded two teams for the George Rogers Clark Invitational tournament on Saturday, with ‘Team A’ taking first-place thanks to golfers Rylee Suttor, Mallori Webb, Catie Kelly, and Mattie Robinson.

  • Rockets limp off in road loss to...

    Forget the injury bug, the Shelby County High School football team got mauled by an injury bear Friday in a 56-31 loss to Bullitt East.

    The game saw five Rockets starters – Tyler Drane, Drew Mack, Keshawn Catlett, Collin O’Hare, and Caleb Morehead – all leave the game with injuries. Catlett and Morehead’s were the most serious of the bunch, with both suffering head injuries and being taken away in ambulances.

  • Boyle hands Titans first loss of...

    Boyle County High School appears to be better than its record lets on.

    The Rebels (2-3) handed Collins (3-1) a 49-30 loss on Friday night, ending the Titans three-game winning streak.

    “Offensively, I felt like we weren’t as crisp as we have been this season,” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “We turned the ball over a bit, but Boyle County, year-in-and-year-out, is one of the top programs in the state. We like having our kids play against them.”
