  • Collins falls to Male

    With everything pointing toward the start of the postseason next week the Collins High School baseball team started a killer stretch of six games with a 3-1 loss to No. 16 Male Thursday.

    The Titans came back from that to fall to Eastern and Bullitt East but scored a win over North Bullitt in a tournament at Eastern over the weekend.

  • Russell leads Shelby into state...

    In his first year as a full-time singles player Jeron Russell is reaching his goals.

    Russell, a junior at Shelby County High School, will play in the state tourney in Lexington May 22-23 after reaching the semis of the 8th Region tourney this week.

    “Depending on my seed, hopefully I won’t pull any seeds I want to go to stare and win a round a two,” Russell said. “I just want to have fun and do the best I can representing Shelby County.”

  • Shelby softball wins two

    The good thing for the Shelby County High School softball team was they were able to post some big scoring innings, the bad thing was there were not enough of those innings, as the Rockets posted a 1-2 record in the Charger Classic at Jeffersontown.

    “We are doing a better job at stringing hits together and pushing runs across the plate,” Shelby County coach Kelly Cable said.

    The Rockets’ lone win came 6-2 over Southern thanks to a six-run third inning.

  • Hunter moving up on pro fishing...

    John Hunter has been learning on the job this year – and learning well.

    Hunter, a Shelby County native, has been bass fishing as a co-angler on the Fishing League Worldwide Tour along with other events this year as he prepares to move into a full-time professional schedule.

  • Rockets fall to Anderson

    Just another Anderson County-Shelby County baseball game, just another nail-biter.

    And just another night when an unlikely source turned into a hero for the night.

    Anderson County sophomore John Paul Garmon homered to lead off the bottom of the sixth, giving the Bearcats a 2-1 win over Shelby County in 30th District action Tuesday night.

  • Collins wins slugfest over...

    After surviving an early 8-4 deficit, five lead changes and 11 hits from Franklin County, the Collins High School baseball team snatched an 11-10 win from the Flyers Tuesday.

    The win was the Titans fourth in a row and ninth out of the last 10 games.

    “We have finally started to have more quality at-bats,” Collins coach Roy Bailey said. “We’re being more consistent with our approach offensively.”

  • Ivers keys Rockets by North

    For a second it looked like Elizabeth Ivers’ hardest hit of the game might have been off her own face mask.

    Ivers, an eighth-grader, on the Shelby County softball team fouled the first pitch right off her face before delivering a clutch two-out, walk-off single in the bottom of the seventh to give the Rockets a 4-3 win over North Oldham Monday.

    “After I did that I just told myself I am going to get a hit now,” Ivers said. “I knew I was going to be fine.”

  • Collins routs Simon Kenton

    Already holding a solid 5-0 lead, the Collins High School baseball team exploded for seven more runs in the fifth inning to roll to an easy 12-1 win over Simon Kenton Monday.

    The Titans (17-6) won their eighth game in their last nine tries with the big inning over the defending regional champions.

    The big inning started with a ground ball single to center field and stolen base from Bryson Dillow. Blanton Creque drew a walk. Both runners advanced on a wild pitch and Jay Becherer came through with a two-run single to open the gates.

  • Shelby beats Franklin County

    With the middle of the lineup carrying the offensive load and a solid complete game pitching effort from Joe Crisp, the Shelby County High School baseball team beat Franklin County 7-2 Thursday.

    “It was kind of like the way our games have gone lately with the back part of the hitting order coming through until the top of the order got going,” Shelby County coach Devin Hicks said. “Once we got clicking we were able to score some runs.”

  • Collins falls to Anderson

    On a day when they weren’t at their best the Collins High School baseball team could not answer Anderson County a final time as the Titans fell 6-3 to the Bearcats in a district seeding game Tuesday.

    “This was a tough loss,” Collins coach Roy Bailey said. “We didn’t pitch well, we didn’t hit well, just not a good day. Give Anderson County credit in this one, they outplayed us today.”
