    North Oldham will be a heavy favorite in the boys’ and girls’ AAA regional cross country meet at Collins Saturday, but the individual titles will still run through Collins High School.

    Both North teams have been ranked in the top five for the most of the season and the boys’ team has been No. 1 for all but two weeks of the year.

    “It’s going to be tough for anyone to beat North in both races,” Collins coach Stephen Drawbaugh said.

  • High school football: Collins...

    After last week’s 33-14 loss at Simon Kenton, Collins Head Coach Jerry Lucas said he saw good things, and that’s been his focus this week as the Titans prepare for South Oldham.

  • High school football: Execution...

    The Shelby County Rockets will hit the road again this week to face another boarder rival with a 7:30 kick-off at Spencer County High School.

    The game was nearly moved to Shelby County after the Bears’ field was hit by lightning two weeks ago, forcing Spencer to hit the road in its opener at Thomas Nelson.

    That game played less than half of a quarter, however, before it was called due to the weather with Spencer County leading 7-0.

    But in just a few minutes of play, the Bears (1-0) had already amassed 115 rushing yards on just five carries.

  • High school boys soccer: Tough...

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team has struggled in three of their first five games this year, but head coach Tony Woods said he expected it.

    The Rockets fell 6-0 to South Oldham on Wednesday and that was on the heels of a 5-2 loss to cross-town rival Collins on Tuesday.

    It was a game only a night owl or Wildcat fan could love at Henry County High School Friday night.

    As with many games across the state, lightening delays pushed the scheduled start time of the game between the Henry County Wildcats and the Shelby County Rockets back two hours.

    When play finally got under way the Wildcats dominated play in the first half and then held on to win 16-14.

    The Collins High School football team opened the 2014 season as defending Class 4A State Champions, but the Titans, who returned only eight starters from last year’s title team, have a long way to go to repeat.

    Host Simon Kenton, which was 10-0 and advanced to the Class 6A quarterfinals, raced out to a 20-0 lead and coasted to a 33-14 win in the season opener for both teams.

  • High school soccer, Bethlehem 2...

    The Collins High School girls’ soccer team has had rough start to the 2014 season. The Titans dropped their third straight game to start the year, 2-1 to Bethlehem Tuesday night, but there are signs of improvement.

    After falling 8-0 to Scott County and 6-0 to DuPont Manual, the Collins recorded its first goal of the year when Jill Solinger scored off an assist from Lee Johnson in the second half.

  • Titans get draw with Mustangs in...

    A fairly unproven Collins boys’ soccer team may have proven something Monday night.

    The Titans tied North Oldham 1-1 – in a matchup of preseason Top 20 teams – at the Mustang Classic at Collins.

    With almost an entirely new starting lineup the Titans, who are 18th in the Maher Rankings’ preseason poll, played the reigning 8th Region champion, and ninth-ranked Mustangs, to a draw in the season-opener for both.

    Shelbyville professional golfer Brandon Brown had his best finish in a Web.com Tour event in two years this past weekend.

    Brown tied for 30th in the News Sentinel Open Presented by Pilot, which ended Sunday, with a 9-under-par. He carded a collective 275 (66-72-67-70) at Fox Den Country Club in Knoxville, Tenn. It was his best finish in a Web.com event since 2012, when he finished tied for 24th in the then-Nationwide Tour’s Stadion Classic.

    The Shelby County girls’ golf team finished fourth in Anderson County’s Joy of Golf Invitational on Saturday.

    The Rockets carded a collective 331 at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Club in Lawrenceburg. Taylor County, which tied for sixth at state last year, won the tourney with a 319. Boyle County was second with a 325 and Scott County third with a 330.

    “Overall we did very well,” Shelby County Coach Melissa Young said.

    Sophomore Lilly Young led the way for Shelby County, finishing fifth overall with a 4-over-par 76.
