  • Rockets handle Collins by 28...

    The Shelby County girls’ golf team celebrated senior night with a victory over cross-town rival Collins by a 28-stroke margin at Weissinger Hills on Thursday night.

    Senior Lilly Young was the medalist of the match, leading all players with a 40 in the victory. Fellow seniors Jenna Lewis and Jennifer Fuqua posted a 41 and a 47 respectively, while junior Faith Wiley chipped in with a 41 of her own.

    The Rockets defeated the Titans by a final score of 169-197.

  • 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.

    Despite being held scoreless in the opening half of play, Collins started seeing openings in the defense before the horn signaled for halftime and the Titans used that as motivation.

  • Oldham halts Titans’ 7-match win...

    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.

  • Titans get back to work at Boyle...

    For the first time in several weeks Collins football fans weren’t sitting on the edge of their seat, holding their collective breath late last Friday night, of course that was because the Titans were on a bye week.

    The comeback kids – who have won their last two games on their last possession – used last week to get back to basics and get ready for perennial power Boyle County tonight.

  • Mustangs tame Titans, 3-0

    The Collins boys’ soccer team hasn’t been able to build off the momentum of wins over Spencer and Anderson counties.

    The Titans have now dropped two straight, falling 3-0 to North Oldham on Tuesday and 4-0 to St. Xavier earlier in the week.

    “The competition is quite different in the four game stretch,” Collins coach Jamil Shalash said. “We’re putting together some real good soccer, but not stringing it for eighty minutes like we need to against competition like that.”

  • Rockets keep rolling, drill...

    While North Bullitt may have come into Shelbyville undefeated, the Shelby County Rockets football team made sure the Eagles weren’t leaving that way.

    SCHS largely shut down the typically explosive North Bullitt offense, as the Rockets dismantled the Eagles 48-23.

    “Our number one thing we did was play assignment football,” coach Todd Shipley said. “We knew they were going to run a version of the triple-option, and I think we forced them to do some things they weren’t used to doing.”

  • Collins volleyball sweeps...

    The Collins High School volleyball team continued its hot streak, picking up its sixth straight win with a 3-0 victory over cross-town rival Shelby County.

    The Titans took a 7-6 advantage over the Rockets early on in the first set, and did not relinquish the lead for the rest of the match.

    “It’s always nice to get a win against our county rival,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “You always worry whether or not the rivalry will become bigger than the match itself.”

  • Flyers roll past Rockets at...

    The Shelby County High School boys’ golf team welcomed Franklin County to Weissinger Golf Course on Monday afternoon, but the Rockets home course wasn’t very hospitable.

    Facing tough fall conditions, Shelby County fell 152-191 to the visiting Flyers.

    “My thoughts on the match is that we took a step back today,” SCHS coach Casey Page said. “But we dealt with harsh conditions. Weissinger had just aerated the greens which makes them extremely tough to putt on, which is one of our strengths.”
