  • Rockets roll with No. 14 Mustangs for a while

    The Shelby County girls’ soccer team more than held its own for the first 68 minutes against 14th-ranked North Oldham on Tuesday evening.

    Unfortunately for the Rockets it was those last 12 minutes that were the difference in the 16th District Tournament first-round match at the Shelby County Athletic Complex. The Mustangs scored thrice in the final dozen minutes to down Shelby County, 3-0.

  • Medley makes the Titans go

    Before this boys’ soccer season began, Collins Coach Scott Cress, who graduated 13 players from his inaugural team, wondered where his second squad’s leadership would come from.

    He quickly found his answer in the form of senior Baker Medley, a midfielder who has become the emotional leader (the ying to the yang of quiet leader Matthew Murphy, a senior defender) of the Titans, who will play host and 13th-ranked Oldham County at noon Saturday in the 16th District Tournament final.

  • Titans deflect their way into regional

    BUCKNER – This time of year, goals aren’t judged on beauty. They are simply counted.

  • Close loss provides big push for Rockets

    If last Friday night’s 1-point loss at North Bullitt wasn’t a moral victory for the Shelby County football team, it was at least a morale victory.

    One week after losing to their cross-town rival Collins, 39-0, the Rockets pushed the Eagles, the preseason favorite in Class 5A, District 4, to the brink before falling, 14-13.
