  • Gallrein Farms named KFB Roadside Market

    Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) Roadside Farmer’s Market in the commonwealth.

  • Fern Creek tops Shelby County

    A four-score inning late in the bottom of the sixth decided Monday’s game between Shelby County and Fern Creek, with the host Tigers coming up with the 9-8 win.

    Fern Creek used three singles and took advantage of a Rocket error to plate four runs while down 8-5, edging out SCHS.

    “I liked the way we hit the ball, but we had a couple of late mistakes that cost us,” Rockets coach Devin Hicks said. “We had 11 hits and scored eight runs, and usually that’s enough to come up with a win.”

  • Collins hammers Western Hills

    The Titans softball team turned in its finest performance of the season thus far on Monday night, run-ruling a hosting Western Hills squad after just five innings by a final score of 11-0.

    Paige Oldham was stellar for Collins on the mound in the road win, allowing the Wolverines just two hits and striking out five Western batters in a complete game shutout.

    With its pitcher dealing, the Titans (9-10) gave Oldham more than enough run insurance to earn the win.

  • Shelby falls to Assumption

    Assumption used a huge first inning to come away with a 6-3 win over visiting Shelby County on Monday night.

    The Louisville-based Rockets plated five runs in the opening frame to set the tone and come away with the win.

    Assumption (16-9) was up 2-1 in the bottom of the first when catcher Sydney Young ripped a massive three-run homer, opening up a 5-1 lead over SCHS after one inning.

  • Titans fall to Ballard at home, 12-1

    The Collins baseball team was not able to complete its contest with Simon Kenton on Saturday, with the game ending after three innings and being ruled a no-contest for both teams by KHSAA due to weather.

    Until the third inning, the Titans had built up a nice 2-0 lead, but the Pioneers came storming back in the second to knot it at 2.

    Then it literally started storming.

    The middle infield duo of second baseman Trevor Pitts and shortstop Drew Goodlett each plated an RBI apiece in the no-contest to allow the Titans to take an early advantage.

  • Titans rip Shelby in district rematch

    The Collins softball team must have taken its loss to rival Shelby County earlier this season to heart, as the Titans run-ruled the Rockets in six innings on Wednesday in a 12-2 win.

    Collins did something extremely efficiently that it was not able to muster in the April 25 meeting between the teams – hitting – rolling up 11 hits and scoring half of its runs in the first two innings to get ahead of SCHS early in regulation.

  • Shelby clinches top district seed

    Shelby County’s Caleb Collins might not be welcome back in Spencer County this year.

    One night after his walkoff RBI single gave the Rockets (11-9) the win over the Bears, Collins came through with three RBIs and a complete game on the mound to lead the Rockets to an 8-1 win at Spencer (7-10) Tuesday.

    The junior lowered his ERA to 2.81 on the season while moving to 1-2 in six starts, and pushing the Rockets to a 5-1 district record and the top overall seed headed into the postseason.

  • Titans close district play with win

    The Collins baseball team closed its district slate of games on a high note in Lawrenceburg on Tuesday, handily defeating Anderson County, 10-4.

    The win was an absolute thumping from the visiting Titans (14-10), as Collins plated seven runs by the end of the fourth inning and held the Bearcats (3-17) scoreless for much of the contest.

    For the season, senior pitcher Austin Ruble is 4-1 in five starts with a 1.84 ERA.
