  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.”

  • Rockets handle Collins by 28...

  • Mustangs run past Shelby in...

    North Oldham proved to be a little too much for the Rockets, as the visiting Mustangs swept Shelby County 3-0 Thursday.

    “One big thing we take away from a match like this is the level of competition needed to go beyond district and region,” Shelby County coach Kristen Kapp said. “My girls need to realize that no matter the level of competition, they need to play their hardest on each point.”

    The first set was a rocky one for the Rockets, who started out of the gate slowly and only mustered seven points.

  • Titans rally to top Shelby...

    After watching the Rockets dominate play and the scoreboard on the way to a 1-0 first half lead Wednesday, the Titans flipped the script in the second half to secure a 3-1 victory in the rivalry game.

    The Collins volleyball team’s seven-match win streak finally came to an end Wednesday against visiting Oldham County.

    “The speed of tonight’s match gave us struggles in several areas,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “Our serving was below our season average at eighty-five percent, and our serve-receive got roughed up with nine errors combined.”

    Blair Nethery and Julia Belcher led the team with four kills apiece as the Colonels swept the Titans in straight sets by scores of 25-21, 25-22, and 25-13.

  • Rockets look to make it 4...

    Following its third consecutive victory, the Shelby County High School football team will look to extend its streak to against a squad that has yet to see a win in 2016.

    Bullitt East has had a rough start to its campaign, going 0-4 against Eastern, Collins, Central Hardin, and Spencer County.

    Two out of the four losses this season have come by four points or less, with the Chargers averaging 37 points per game at this point in the year.
