  • Shelby splits 2 weekend matches...

    Shelby County’s volleyball team has taken on some formidable opponents over the course of its opening week, and should be better and more experienced in the long run for it.

    After dropping a match to Oldham County Thursday night in straight sets, the Rockets took on both Walton-Verona and Simon Kenton, splitting those matches to close the weekend.

    Shelby County 2, Walton-Verona 0

    The Rockets closed Saturday’s doubleheader at Walton with a shutout win over the host school, bringing Shelby’s record to 2-2 on the year.

  • Cougars outlast Shelby

    Shelby County’s girls’ soccer team will be searching for a reliable source of offense after taking a tough 1-0 loss to Bullitt Central on Saturday morning.

    The Rockets and Cougars each put several shots on goal throughout the contest, with BCHS finding the back of the net in the second half, and moving Shelby to 0-2 on the season.

    “I’m not really sure what to say about my team yet,” Rockets coach Joe Turner said. “I wasn’t happy that we lost, but we did play a little better.”

  • Titans rally to top Eastern

    The Collins boys’ soccer team fought hard to earn its season-opening win over Eastern High School on Tuesday night.

    With time running out in regulation, and the Titans looking to avoid a draw to open the year, junior forward Jack Sanford found the back of the net with two minutes remaining in the contest, sealing the 4-3 win over the Eagles and moving Collins to 1-0 on the season.

  • Shelby opens season at Fairdale

    With the opening game of the 2017 season just one day away, Shelby County football will look to march into Louisville and come up with a win over a Fairdale team that struggled last season.

    The Bulldogs mustered a 3-8 record in 2016, and struggled to stop opposing offenses.

    Enter Shelby, a team that runs one of the most efficient rushing attacks around.

  • Titans take on Madison Southern

    The Collins football team will look to kick its season off on a high note when it faces Madison Southern Saturday night in the opening contest of the Roy Kidd Bowl.

    The Titans are expecting a tough opponent in the Eagles, which compiled a record of 8-4 last season before falling to North Bullitt in the second round of the 5A State Football Playoffs.

    “I’m very excited for the game on Saturday,” Titans coach Jerry Lucas said. “They are an excellent football team, and are really good at what they do on both sides of the ball.”

  • Collins wins tri-match over...

    Behind junior Catie Kelly’s school record-low 38 on a nine-hole round, Collins girls’ golf defeated both Henry County and Assumption in a tri-match in the Titans’ hosting duty on Monday afternoon.

    “Catie putted the ball really well tonight,” Titans coach Matt Cockrell said. “And Anna Mercer played really well tonight. Anna hit her irons with precision and accuracy.”

    Collins posted a total team score of 191, defeating Henry by 14 strokes, and Assumption by 34.

  • Collins boasts experience,...

    After a successful 2016 season saw Collins football increase its win total to 7-5, the Titans are looking to take the next step as a unit this season, behind a large senior class.

    Collins boasts 20 seniors on roster for 2017, with many of the athletes having in-game experience from previous years.

    “Obviously we’re excited about the upcoming season,” coach Jerry Lucas said. “It’s like we say every year, we have to stay healthy.”

  • Shelby looks to keep winning run

    For the second consecutive year, Shelby County football is hoping that its new, talented starters can step into a proven system and win right away.

    With the departure of several two-way football players from last year’s district championship team, the Rockets are focused on replicating that success with new athletes, as it did just last season.

  • Collins is young, but experienced

    Collins boys’ golf hopes it has the right combination of veteran experience and youth to make a run at a state appearance this season.

    With four returning starters, the Titans should pick up where it left off last year as a group.

    “We have four guys coming back from last year’s team in Jacob Feltner, Jake Griffin, Cole Ruttinger, and Jake Leonburger,” coach Lance Alexander said. “Feltner is a four-year starter, and Griffin is expected to come along strong, so we’re hoping on solid years from those guys.”

  • Freshman looks to lead Shelby’s...

    While the Shelby County boys’ golf team is young, they aren’t newcomers to the program.

    Led by freshman golfer Zach Houchin, the team expects to take the next step as a team after a growing year in 2016.

    “Zach [Houchin] has been really solid for us over the last two years, and is our number-one,” coach Casey Page said. “His bad rounds are most people’s good rounds, so he should be able to shoot some really low scores this year.”
