  • 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.”

  • SCHS welcomes 2nd Hall of Fame...

    On Saturday night, Shelby County High School welcomed its second class into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

    Numerous former athletes and Shelby County alumni attended the event.

    Former SCHS athletic director Sally Zimmerman is in charge of the selection committee that helped choose the inductees.

    “I thought the event went great,” Zimmerman said. “I was just hoping that everything was going to go as well as it did last year, but I thought everything went well.”

  • Titans hang with No.1-ranked,...

    Despite falling 4-0 to the visiting St. Xavier Tigers, the Collins boys’ soccer team showed that it can hang with the state’s best.

    “Obviously with them being the top team in the state, they have so many weapons,” Collins coach Jamil Shalash said. “They are solid from top to bottom. We were putting some great stuff together, we just couldn’t hold them long enough.”

  • Rockets look to defeat North...

    Coming off of decisive victories over Oldham and Grayson counties, the Shelby County Rockets will look to win a third straight against North Bullitt tonight at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    The highlight of the last two wins for the Rockets has been a much-improved defensive front. After allowing Garrard County to rush for more than 400 yards in the season opener, Shelby’s front-seven has buckled down and ground out its opponents.

    “We’re concentrated on playing assignment football,” Rockets coach Todd Shipley said.

  • Titans get back-to-back wins...

    In its last two contests, the Collins’ volleyball team has defeated the 14th and 16th ranked teams in the state of Kentucky.

    “Both [Kentucky Country Day] and South Oldham were off to strong starts this year,” coach Cary Clark said. “The rankings are from MaxPreps, and go off of strength of schedule and win-loss record.”

    The Titans took a three-match winning streak on the road to Louisville on Wednesday to take on Kentucky Country Day where a tight contest turned into a 2-1 win for the Titans.

  • Bearcats slip past Rockets in OT

    Despite holding Anderson County scoreless for over 80 minutes, the Shelby County girls’ soccer team could not pick up the win on Wednesday night.

    Neither team was able to get much working offensively, as halftime and regulation passed with a scoreless tie still intact.

    But three minutes and forty-four seconds into the overtime period, the deadlock finally broke. Anderson County’s Anna Foley beat Shelby’s keeper to put in the only goal of the contest, and handed the Bearcats the 1-0 victory.
