  • Shelby’s own Splash Brothers

    Not every team can have two leaders.

    Sometimes it is just a clash of personalities, or the natural competitiveness that comes with sports that splits leadership roles.

    Luckily for the Shelby County’s boys’ swim team, it has two leaders that could not be closer, in sophomore Logan Kessinger and junior Sean Gilpatrick.

    The pair are coming off of a 2015 season in which they both qualified for the state meet, and are looking to go even further with the postseason rapidly approaching.

  • Shelby buries Bullitt from...

    When opponents give the Shelby County girls’ basketball team space to shoot, the Rockets can be incredibly difficult to beat.

    Bullitt Central (6-18) found that lesson out the hard way, as the Rockets drilled 10 shots from three-point range to hammer the Cougars 60-21 on Saturday afternoon.

    Following a tough shooting night in its previous game against Owen County, SCHS could not miss from both outside the arc, or from anywhere else on the court.

  • Rockets fall at Central Hardin

    The Rockets found ways over, around and through the Central Hardin defense in the first half, but changes after halftime brought Shelby County’s offense to screeching stop and ended in a 55-39 loss.

    At the end of the second quarter, the Rockets (5-19) were clinging to a 3-point, 23-20, lead behind the playmaking ability of point guard Kyion Stone.

  • Deep-shooting Male holds off...

    A pair of cold streaks on both ends of the floor during the first and third quarters squandered an otherwise solid performance in Collins 65-59 loss at Male Tuesday.

    Halfway through the first quarter, the Bulldogs (10-9) started to get hot, which left the Titans (17-7) struggling to adjust.

    “On the scouting report coming into this game, only one of their guys was shooting at a good percentage for the year,” Titans coach Chris Gaither said. “Some of their guys just hit some game-changing shots.”

  • Frankfort edges out Shelby on...

    A costly turnover late ended Shelby County’s comeback bid Tuesday, as Frankfort handed Shelby County its 18th loss of the season, 81-76.

    SCHS (5-18) found itself down 75-72 with 49 seconds remaining in regulation with an opportunity to tie the game.
    But a forced turnover by the Panthers (7-17) took the wind out of the Rockets’ sails and sent Shelby home with another loss.

  • Collins, Shelby teams turn in...

    Both Collins and Shelby County boys’ swim teams earned a pair of top finishes to close out its regular season on Saturday.

    The Titans earned a second-place finish as a team in the standings with a final score of 277.5 while the Rockets slotted in behind them with 259.

    Both teams finished behind first-place Elizabethtown, which earned a whopping 517.5 points.

    Head coach Tom Coons was happy with the results he saw from his teams heading into regional competition later this month.

  • Collins makes late run for...

    Thanks to a late rally that saw the Collins boys’ basketball team’s resiliency tested, the Titans (17-6, 5-0 district) can now add the 30th District Championship to its resume.

    The win did not come easily though, as Anderson County made Collins fight for every point, especially during the late stages of the 62-59 win.

  • Shelby dominates Atherton, 69-20

    There is no other way to describe Shelby County’s 49-point win over Atherton on Monday night other than pure domination.

    The Rockets (9-14) raced past the Rebels (10-15) on both ends of the floor, forcing Atherton to commit numerous turnovers and scoring easy baskets in transition.

  • Rockets furious rally falls...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team got off to a slow start to begin the second half against Atherton, and that cold streak likely cost the Rockets a win in the 67-62 loss on Monday.

    Atherton came out of the break on fire, reeling off a 16-5 run to begin the third quarter and putting SCHS in a 48-29 hole.

    After a timeout, the Rockets would answer with a 10-0 run to close the quarter and the gap, and trailed 48-39 going into the fourth.

  • Collins dominates Gallatin County

    With Gallatin County serving as the only stop in a 10-day span between games, it’s clear the Collins girls’ basketball team has gone to work.

    The Titans bum-rushed Gallatin from the opening tip, dominating the visiting Wildcats 66-45 Wednesday.

    The Titans (14-9) have been off since last Friday’s loss to Anderson County, and have six more days before facing West Jessamine at the end of the month. In that time, head coach Sean Pigman has reinvigorated his team by preaching effort and taking outside shots when open.
