  • Shelby County ready to run in...

    With the departure of multiple-time state champion Kyrien Stone from last season’s team, the Shelby County High School track and field program will look to a new group of athletes to help lead the program.

    Last season, a pair of sophomores in Treyvon Beasley and William Davis made their first appearances at the AA State Meet. The hope is that the pair continues to grow along with the overall team, and helps lead the Rockets going forward.

  • Middle schools start softball...

    Both Shelby East and West middle schools will begin an inaugural softball season this fall, with the schools combining as one to play out the 2018 regular season.

    John McCluskey has been tabbed as the head coach of the newly minted program, and said the team will feature 22 athletes on roster for this season.

  • Colonels hold off Titans in...

    With two minutes remaining in regulation, and Collins boys' basketball down 61-54 to Oldham County in the opening round of the 8th Region Tournament, it seemed as if the Titans would be able to make a run after a huge defensive play turned into points at the other end of the floor.

    Following a steal, senior guard Jacob Feltner launched a three-pointer with a hand in his face, cutting the Colonels' lead down to 61-57 with a timeout being called by Collins coach Chris Gaither to regroup defensively before the next possession.

  • Thomas named Player of Week

    Following her top-five finish at the Moon Golf Invitational over the weekend, former Shelby County and current University of Memphis golfer Madison Thomas was named the American Athletic Conference’s women’s Player of the Week on Tuesday.

    Thomas says that the honor was a surprise, as she became just the fourth women’s golfer in the Tigers’ history to win the award.

  • Anderson steals district title...

    With one minute left in regulation, both Collins boys’ basketball and Anderson County had a chance to win the 30th District Championship with the game tied at 40.

    In a mirror image of last season’s district title game though, it was the Bearcats that made the plays down the stretch, as Anderson defeated the Titans 44-40 on Friday night.

  • Collins to face Oldham County

    Fans of Collins boys’ basketball are hoping this season is a repeat of last year’s, after the Titans were paired with Oldham County in the 8th Region Tournament for the second straight season.

    Collins upset a then No. 13-ranked Oldham County last season to start a run that ended up in the Sweet 16, and the Titans are hoping to pull off the same sort of surprise this time around.

  • Middle schools to kick off...

    With tryouts wrapping up this week, both Shelby County West and East middle schools are looking to get a new program off to a hot start.

    The plan for this season is to field a combined schools unit with three teams separated by age-level into sixth, seventh and eighth grade teams. The schools assess later on whether to split the teams.

    Former Shelby County Little League coach Jonathan Carroll has been tabbed to help lead the teams.

  • Spencer County eliminates Collins

    Too many turnovers and not enough scoring doomed Collins girls’ basketball’s chances of advancing to the 30th District Tournament title game on Tuesday night, as the Titans took a tough 47-35 loss to Spencer County in a grind-it-out type of game.

    Closing out halves proved to be a serious challenge for Collins, who combined for just 10 points as a team in the second and fourth quarters.

  • Feltner’s perfect night leads...

    With both Shelby County and Collins looking to secure a trip to the 30th District Championship game and the 8th Region tournament, the Titans used a perfect night of basketball from Titans guard Jacob Feltner to end Shelby’s season on Monday night.

    Behind a scorcher of a second half, Collins shook off a strong interior effort from the Rockets and handed SCHS a 76-53 loss.

    Feltner led the way for Collins, totaling 20 points on a 9-for-9 shooting by attacking the basket to help push the Titans’ lead into double-digits in the third and fourth quarters.

  • Anderson rolls through Shelby

    Too big, too fast, too strong.

    These are the only ways to put into words what Anderson County girls’ basketball did to Shelby County on Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament.

    Anderson led from the opening tip-off, only increasing its lead through the rest of the game and heading to the district championship game on the back of a 66-29 win over the host Rockets.
