  • Collins extends winning streak...

    The Collins girls’ basketball team grew its winning streak to four games Tuesday night, as the team traveled to Nicholasville and handed West Jessamine a 14-point loss, 58-44.

    The Titans (11-11) received a game-high 14 points from junior forward Jeian Hayes, and aided a team with its starting point guard in foul trouble and another player out with injury.

  • Titans roll through Rockets in...

    Collins boys’ basketball used ball movement and hot shooting to stymie a Shelby County comeback effort Saturday and rolled to a 4-0 record in district play this season as a result.

    “We wanted to reestablish our identity as far as sharing the basketball goes,” Titans coach Chris Gaither said. “Marcellus Vail and Nick Fort led our team in assists tonight, so it was good to see those guys making plays for others.”

  • Second half surge leads Titans...

    It was a tale of two halves on Saturday night, Collins girls’ basketball came into the final two quarters with a renewed defensive focus, and it showed as the Titans held SCHS to just eight points in the third and fourth quarters combined to pick up a 50-33 district win on Saturday night.

    “I thought we started well, and we finished well,” Titans coach Sean Pigman said. “Obviously in the second quarter we didn’t play well. We got frustrated, and a lot of the credit goes to [Shelby County].”

  • Rockets, Titans close season on...

    Both Collins and Shelby County high schools closed the swimming regular season Saturday in an 18-team meet held at the Shelbyville Family Activity Center.

    The Rocket boys’ squad was the big winner of the day, taking first-place ahead of runner-up North Oldham by three-and-a-half points with 354.5 while Collins slotted in fourth in the boys’ competition at 325.

  • Shelby County splits games over...

    Shelby County girls’ basketball was able to pick up its fifth win of the season in a great team performance against visiting Doss on Thursday night before traveling to Oldham County and falling to the Colonels Friday.

    This game was a direct inverse of the team effort shown by the Rockets just the night before, as SCHS could not seem to get out of its own way, falling 59-24 at Oldham.

  • Collins wraps up top district...

    The Titans boys’ basketball team sealed its run as the No. 1 seed in 30th District play on Friday night, defeating visiting Anderson County 63-51.

    Collins defense was the star of the show for the first half, as the Titans limited the Bearcats to just three second-quarter points and 25 percent shooting in the opening two quarters on the way to a 33-20 halftime advantage.

  • Titans kick off winning streak

    Collins girls’ basketball has shed its losing streak from the late stages of 2017 in a big way, going on a four-game winning streak and edging out South Oldham and Jeffersontown in a pair of contests on Thursday and Friday, respectively.

    The Titans used size and dominant rebounding to frustrate a talented J-Town team Friday, pulling down 37 boards while point guard Olivia Federle went white-hot from the field with a season-high 31 points.

  • Oldham crushes Rockets

    Shelby County boys’ basketball saw what it takes to compete with the top of the 8th Region on Friday night, as the Rockets faced a strong Oldham County team and took a lopsided 76-32 loss.

    “Oldham [County] did a good job of pressuring us and turning us over then converting on the other end,” Rockets coach Ken Cates said. “They have the ability to go on big runs, and they did that to us early.”

  • Titans pull away late to top...

    While the first half of Tuesday’s contest between Collins boys’ basketball and visiting Woodford County was close, the second half was significantly less so, with the Titans using its shooting and ball movement to make a late scoring push for a 61-41 win over Woodford.

    The Titans (15-4) used seven made three-pointers from Jacob Feltner, who led all scorers with 23 points and 52 percent shooting from the field in the second half as a team to pick up the lopsided win over the Yellow Jackets.

  • Franklin County tops Shelby in OT

    While Shelby County boys’ basketball’s offense responded to a guard-heavy change in lineup on Wednesday night, it was not enough to top Franklin County on the road, as the Rockets fell in overtime to the Flyers, 74-69.

    “We played much better than we have the last two weeks,” Rockets coach Ken Cates said. “We needed to shake up the starting lineup so we went with a more guard-oriented lineup.”
