  • High-flying Titans top Bullitt...

    In a shootout that would have made Mike Leach proud, Collins High School defeated a visiting Bullitt East team by a score of 55-52 on Friday night.

    Trailing 52-48 in the final quarter, quarterback J.R. Lucas found Sam Harrod in the end zone to take the lead, and lock up the second win of the season for the Titans.

    “I think it was a great high school football game,” coach Jerry Lucas said. “If you’re an old-school, defensive-minded person, it may not have been the game for you.”

  • Collegiate slips past Titans...

    With the game knotted at 1-1 and time running out, Louisville Collegiate’s Regan Kommor put in her 17th goal of the season to defeat Collins girls’ soccer, 2-1.

    “They have a really top-notch goal scorer [in Kommor],” head coach Steve Nash said. “Overall, I think we played well, and I feel like we’re real close to winning some of these close matches.”

    The Amazons jumped on Collins late in the first half, thanks to Kommor’s 16th goal of the season as time was running out.

  • Rockets take their best shot at...

    At Thursday’s tri-meet, the Shelby County girls’ golf team defeated both Henry County and Collins high schools, but it was one of the Rockets that took a beating.

    Shelby’s Jenna Lewis and Lilly Young tied for the team-high score, with each shooting 41. A ball on the No. 5 hole struck Lewis, who gutted out the final four holes of play, and tied Young for the team-leading score.

  • Rockets rolling in First Spike

    The Shelby County High School volleyball team went 3-1 in the First Spike Tournament held over the weekend, moving to 4-3 for the season.

    “The weekend was a great victory,” coach Kristen Kapp said. “We placed first in silver in the tournament. The tournament gave the team a chance to play several matches against very different teams. They worked on keeping up their speed and their intensity, despite the pace of the other team.”

  • Rockets growing on the course

    The Shelby County boys’ golf team picked up a much-needed victory Tuesday, defeating Western Hills by a score of 184-216.

    The top golfers for the Rockets were Zach Houchin, who shot a team-low 42, as well as teammates Chris Soard and Ben Betts who each shot 47’s on the 9-hole match. Eighth-grader Dillon Fields was not far behind Soard and Betts, shooting a 48.

    Head coach Casey Page was glad to pick up the victory, even though he knows that the team has the potential to be even better than it was Tuesday.

  • Titans rebound, whip Spencer...

    After falling to Male and Oldham County, the Collins’ volleyball team swept Spencer County in its home opener three sets to none.

    “I was really happy we were able to be back in good spirits after the two losses,” coach Cary Clark said. “We just came off playing against sixteenth-ranked Male and ninth-ranked Oldham, but I think those were good for our team, to be able to face better competition.”

  • Rockets look to bounce back at...

    The Shelby County High School football team will look to move past a season-opening loss as it travels to Leitchfield to take on 5A Grayson County tonight at 7:30.

    The Cougars had a rough 2015 campaign, only winning two games before being bounced from the first round of the state playoffs by a score of 69-0 by Owensboro. And this season hasn’t looked much better as the Cougars opened with a 42-8 loss at home to Hancock County.

  • Physical Bullitt East visits...

    Coming off of a season-opening win at Montgomery County, Collins High School will look to make it 2-0 when it welcomes Bullitt East to Shelbyville tonight.

    The Chargers struggled in 2015, winning just three games before being blown out by Fairdale, 53-6, in the first round of the 5A State Playoffs.

    Collins drilled Bullitt East 55-15 last season.

  • Rockets hammer Henry County, 9-0

    While last Thursday’s seven-goal effort against North Bullitt was more of a one-man show, the Shelby County boys’ soccer team shared the spotlight in a 9-0 win over Henry County on Tuesday.

    Junior forward Caleb Patten continued his hot streak on the offensive end, racking up four goals against a struggling Henry team, but this week Paul Nethery also added two goals in the rout. Rounding out the scoring were Kyrien Stone, Nathon Mayes, and Thomas Wilkerson, who scored goal each and added to the frustration of the Wildcats’ keeper on several occasions.

  • Collins capitalizes on...

    For the second season in a row, Collins High School marched into Mt. Sterling and defeated Recreation Bowl host Montgomery County High School, this time by a count of 34-18.

    Forcing Montgomery to commit error after error was the key to victory for the Titans, with Collins recovering four fumbles, three inside the opponents’ 25-yard line.
