    Both the Collins and Shelby County swim teams took to the pool Wednesday for the first time since the Christmas break and finished in the top-four behind teams from Boyle County and Danville.

    On the girls’ side of the team standings, Collins earned a third-place finish with 211 points behind winner Boyle County, which ended with 298.5 points.

    Shelby County slotted right behind the Titans, with 128 points.

  • Shelby fighter brings boxing...

    Elvis hasn’t left the building. In fact, he just arrived.

    The sport of boxing is coming to Shelbyville this Saturday, and no one is more excited for the opportunity to fight in front of his home crowd than Shelby-native Oscar ‘Elvis’ Jimenez.

    Jimenez, after all, has lived in Shelby County for more than half of his life, and has wanted to compete in his hometown since becoming a professional fighter.

  • Collins outlasts South Oldham in...

    Thanks to a strong fourth quarter and overtime period by freshman point guard Olivia Federle, Collins girls’ basketball knocked off a very strong South Oldham team Wednesday night.

    Federle scored six points in the final 12 minutes of play, including one of the team’s two baskets during OT as Collins earned the tight 46-44 win over the Dragons.

    Titans’ head coach Sean Pigman says he emphasized to Federle to be more aggressive offensively during the second half of the game.

  • Titans fall to Shamrocks, 67-49

    Although the Collins boys’ basketball team would eventually lose 67-49 at No. 1 ranked Trinity Tuesday, the Titans showed that they are a team to be reckoned with.

    After Trinity (13-1) raced out with a dominating first quarter and grabbed a 26-10 lead after the first eight minutes, the Titans (11-3) didn’t back down.

    Collins locked down the host Shamrocks in the second quarter, limiting Trinity to just three points with a dominating performance of its own.

  • Titans claim Henry County title

    The Collins boys’ basketball team’s winning streak is now eight straight after a 79-60 defeat of Shelby County Thursday night.

    The Titans (11-2) also claimed a second tournament title of the season with the win, beating the Rockets (3-9) in the championship round of the Henry County Invitational.

    Defense was a big factor for Collins, limiting a Shelby team that had averaged 88.5 points over its past two contests to just 60.

  • Karas commits to UVA

    With her last two cross-country seasons ending due to unfortunate injuries, Collins’ runner Gabriella Karas will look to continue her athletic career at the University of Virginia this fall.

    Karas committed to UVA on Thursday afternoon, and says that she knew right away that she wanted to be a Cavalier.

    “I was texting with a friend from [Footlocker National competition] and she told me how much she loved UVA,” Karas said. “She gave the coach my number, and we just hit it off from the start.”

  • SCHS ends Lady Rocket Holiday...

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team ended its tournament-hosting duties with a solid 50-36 defeat of Holy Cross on Thursday night.

    Sophomore Asia Hardy stepped up offensively with a season-high of 18 points in relief of teammate Zephy Gray who played through a nagging ankle injury.

    Despite the ailment, Gray toughed out the second game of a doubleheader on Thursday, and was second on the team with 15 points.

  • COLUMN: Has ESPN devalued the...

    While tuning in for the special Monday edition of College GameDay, I came to an uncomfortable realization.

    The five panelists, led by ESPN’s Rece Davis, were discussing and scrutinizing Alabama’s 24-7 victory over Washington from two nights before, and I had completely forgotten who was taking the field for the Rose Bowl game. The very stadium the experts were sitting in and there to hype.

  • Rockets maul Henry County

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team has secured its first winning streak of the early season with a 79-53 drubbing of tournament host Henry County on Wednesday night.

    The Rockets (3-8) used a stout defense to limit the Wildcats (4-8) from doing much of anything offensively, as SCHS had already doubled up Henry 40-20 by halftime.

    “Our focus tonight was to pressure Henry County and disrupt them,” Rockets coach Ken Cates said. “They run well if you don’t take them out of what they want to do.”

  • Titans outlast CAL to advance

    The Collins boys’ basketball team picked up its second win in as many nights at the Henry County Invitational, this time defeating Christian Academy-Louisville 64-57 on Wednesday.

    While the Titans (10-2) got off to a slow start offensively, it was the team’s defense that kept it in much of the game.
    Collins was just one-of-10 from three-point range in the first half, which made the score a tight 29-24 lead in favor of the Titans headed into the break.
