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

  • 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.

  • Struggling Waggener next in district slate for Titans

    The Collins football team took a giant step toward winning the Class 4A, District 3 title with last week’s victory over previously unbeaten North Oldham.

  • Titans bounce to title in rubber match

    It was all about the middlemen, or in this case middlewomen, Wednesday night for the Collins volleyball team.

    Led by their A&W middle hitters – senior Ashley Williams and junior Aaliyah Wells – the Titans topped cross-town rival Shelby County, 25-22, 25-17, in the 30th District final, the third meeting between the two this season, at the Rockets’ Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Williams had five kills and Wells nine a day after she turned 17.

  • Opening of donut shop plugs a hole in Shelby's foodscaope

    The sign has been up for weeks, but the fresh smell of donuts wafting down Midland Trail on Tuesday was the first sure-fire sign that Donut Express had finally fired up the ovens.

    The store completes high-calorie corner in Shelbyville, located in the small shopping center at 1732 Midland Trail by Papa Johns Pizza and Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen, but there won't be a lot of direct competition.

    Donut Express is open from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m., and with everything made fresh daily, you better get there early.
