  • Rocket girls take 3rd place

    The Shelby County boys’ track and field team wasn’t the only Rockets squad putting on a show on Wednesday night.

    The SCHS girls’ team ended its Class AA Region 3 track meet in third place, with 98 points, finishing behind overall winner North Oldham by 25.

    While Collins team may not have earned a top finish, it will also send an athlete to the state competition later this month after a ninth-place spot with 19 points.

  • Collins tennis sends three to...

    For the second consecutive season, the Collins tennis team will be represented at the KHSAA State Tournament.

    No. 3 seeded boys singles player Jared Baltzell qualified for his spot at state on Tuesday, with a 7-6, 6-0 victory over his South Oldham opponent in the quarterfinals of the 8th Region tournament.

    Until this point in school history, Collins had yet to send a singles player to the state tournament.

  • Shelby blows out Waggener on road

    Following a four game losing streak, Shelby County baseball was looking to get back on track with both its attitude and effort with postseason play lurking just around the corner.

    The Rockets did just that in a big way on Tuesday night, dominating its matchup with Waggener in Louisville by a score of 20-1 and a five-inning, run-rule victory.

    SCHS (13-16-1) scored 17 of its runs in the second and third innings combined, with Marcus Collins being a major factor both at the plate and on the mound.

  • St. X edges out Collins

    When on its game, the Collins baseball team can play with anyone.

    The Titans proved that on Tuesday night, falling by a narrow one-run margin to a visiting St. Xavier team ranked No. 5 in the state of Kentucky according to Prep Baseball Report.

    Collins (18-13) head coach Mike Hammond says he wanted his team to be within striking distance of St. X (22-9) heading into the final frame, and the Titans were just that.

  • Shelby, Collins advance in...

    With the 8th Region tennis tournament held in Frankfort over the mornings of Monday and Tuesday, several athletes from both Collins and Shelby County high schools have advanced through the first day of matches and are within striking distance of a KHSAA State Tennis Tournament appearance.

    For Collins, top singles player Rylee Suttor advanced through the first three rounds of tournament play, and is one win shy of qualifying for the state tournament.

  • Shelby shutout by Spencer on the...

    For the majority of the matchup between Shelby County softball and district-foe Spencer County, it looked like the contest would go scoreless for a long time.

    But the Bears bats awoke in the fifth inning on a pair of home runs to give Spencer the 4-0 lead and the shutout win over Shelby.

    The Rockets (8-12-1, 0-5 district) tallied just three hits against a solid pitching performance from Spencer’s (17-8, 3-3 district) Emily Cole.

  • Timely hits lead Collins past...

    If consistency is the most important thing when hitting a baseball, Collins showed it had the ability to make Henry County pay with a trifecta of scoring bursts in a 7-4 win Monday.

    The Titans racked up two runs in each of the second, third and fourth innings against the hosting Wildcats (18-6).

  • Shelby drops three at weekend...

    Shelby’s matchup with Daviess County looked very similar to the loss the day before at the hands of Christian County in the Town and Country Classic in Hopkinsville.

    Despite earning nine hits as a team, SCHS just could not find a timely hit against the Panthers, logging a tough 9-2 loss while leaving six base runners stranded.

    Daviess got to Shelby starting pitcher Brandon Moore early, tagging the pitcher for 11 hits and eight earned runs.

  • Anderson uses hitting for...

    Collins baseball’s 30th District showdown at Anderson County on Monday night showed the incredible plate presence of the Bearcats.

    With winds of over 25 miles per hour, the Bearcats took advantage with power hitting, using the elements as an aid for the long ball.

    Anderson (12-9, 4-1 district) racked up 10 runs in the first three innings alone, rolling up a 12-2 run rule win over the Titans (17-11, 4-1 district) just two frames later.

  • Collins defeats visiting...

    The Collins tennis teams each picked up a win on Monday night, going a combined 9-1 in the boys and girls standings in the win over Frankfort.

    The girls’ team finished a perfect 5-0, anchored by No. 1 singles player Rylee Suttor.

    Suttor picked up a 6-0, 6-2 win over her opponent in quick fashion.

    After the Panthers forfeited its second and third singles matches due to lack of players, the No. 1 doubles team of Blair Nethery and Madi Hurley sealed the fourth win for the Titans with a 6-1, 6-0 victory.
