  • Shelby County rallies to top...

    At halftime of Friday’s contest between Shelby County and Spencer County, the Rockets trailed the visiting Bears 7-6. Shelby head coach Todd Shipley had a message for his players: The way this game goes is up to you.

    The Rockets had fallen behind the Bears after missing an extra point following a kick return touchdown by William Davis, but needed to cut down on mistakes in the second half in order to pick up the win.

    Shelby did just that, defeating Spencer handily when it was all said and done.

  • Titans overcome slow start, rout...

    After a slow start saw Collins score just six first-half points on a pair of field goals from kicker Webb Bates, the Titans’ offense found its momentum in the second half on the way to a 41-0 rout over North Oldham Friday.

    The Titans used five second-half touchdowns behind the arm of senior quarterback J.R. Lucas and the legs of running backs Zach Stucker and A.J. Bradford to blow out the Mustangs.

    Stucker struck first after the break, capping an eight-play drive with a touchdown run to put Collins up 13-0 in the third.

  • Titans headed to district final

    Amid conditions that ranged from lightly drizzling to outright pouring, Collins girls’ soccer sealed a trip to the 30th District Championship with a 4-2 defeat of Spencer County Tuesday night.

    The championship match between the Bearcats and Titans was Thursday night at Anderson, but results were not made available by press time.

    “I think we did well,” Titans coach Steve Nash said. “As good as expected in the conditions we played in. We knew Spencer was going to be tough coming in, so we were happy to get what we got tonight.”

  • Rockets host Spencer in district...

    Tonight, Shelby County football will face off with a Spencer County team that has struggled to establish an offensive identity this season.

    After going 8-4 and winning a playoff game in 2016, the Bears have stumbled to a 2-6 mark this year and have lost three consecutive games coming into tonight’s matchup.

    Most recently, the Bears took a tough 20-0 shutout loss at the hands of Franklin County last Friday, amassing just 106 yards of total offense against the Flyers.

  • Collins welcomes North Oldham in...

    Collins will look to move to 3-0 in district play and 6-2 overall this season when the Titans welcome a resurgent North Oldham tonight.

    The Mustangs (2-5) had a rocky start to the season before righting the ship behind an impressive and improving offense in recent weeks.

    Last Friday, North Oldham played tightly with Shelby County before the Rockets earned the victory on a last-second field goal.

  • Rockets end season on winning...

    Shelby County brought its regular season to a close on a winning streak, defeating each of the Anderson County and Henry County teams over the past week.

    Results of Thursday’s season finale on the road at Manual were not available by press time.

    “[Thursday] is our last match against Manual,” SCHS coach Kristen Kapp said. “It is their chance to bring it all and leave it all. It’s our one last shot to get the game experience before tournament time.”

    Shelby County 2, Henry County 0

  • Rockets take 9th at state meet

    With perfect conditions on the first day of competition Friday, and some less-than-ideal weather on Saturday, Shelby County’s girls golf team gutted out a ninth-place finish at the KHSAA State Golf Tournament over the weekend.

    As a team the Rockets shot 693 over the two combined days, finishing behind overall winner Sacred Heart, which finished with a team score of 617.

  • Titans edge out Rockets

    In a very physical matchup between Shelby County and crosstown rival Collins, it was the Titans taking a 1-0 victory and advancing to the 30th District Championship game set for Thursday night at Anderson County High School.

    Collins hosted the tournament first rounds games Monday and Tuesday due to water issues on the Bearcats field. Anderson County is scheduled to host the championship game Thursday.

  • Shelby falls to Anderson County

    Solid defense and several saves by senior keeper Savannah Stovall were not enough to propel Shelby County past Anderson County on Monday night, as the Rockets took a tough 4-0 loss to close out its season in the first round of the 30th District Tournament at Collins High School. Collins hosted the first round games Monday and Tuesday due to water issues on Anderson County’s field. The Bearcats will host the championship game Thursday.

    As has been the case for the Rockets this season, Shelby could not generate enough momentum on offense to score against the Bearcats.

  • Shelby County outlasts North...

    For the second time in the last three games, Shelby County owes its win in large part to its placekicker.

    With three seconds remaining in Friday’s contest against North Oldham and the score tied at 20, Christian Gayhart knocked down a 43-yard attempt, giving the Rockets a 23-20 victory and moving SCHS to 5-2 on the season.
