  • Collins whips CAL to close season

    Collins boys’ basketball put its offensive firepower on full display at Christian Academy-Louisville Friday night, blowing out the Centurions 73-40 and handing CAL its 11th consecutive loss of the season.

    Led by senior forward Nick Fort’s 19-point, seven rebound performance, the Titans jumped on CAL (6-20) beginning in the second quarter and did not let the home team get comfortable on either end of the floor for the rest of the contest.

  • Shelby’s comeback bid comes up...

    Shelby County boys’ basketball’s comeback bid at home against a visiting Gallatin County came up just short on Friday night, falling by a one-point margin to a very talented Wildcats team, 49-48.

    After a slow first half on both sides of the ball, Shelby (6-21) showed up to dominate in the back two quarters of play, with the Wildcats only able to muster a total of 14 points in the second half.

    The Rockets’ offense improved following a tough first half, but a nine-point fourth quarter ended up just shy of a win in the 8th Region loss.

  • Titans rebound to top Mustangs

    Despite playing its worst half of basketball all season against North Oldham on Tuesday night, Collins boys’ basketball did enough in the final two quarters to beat the Mustangs.

    The host Titans (20-8) committed numerous first half turnovers against North, throwing errant passes out of bounds and shooting just 30 percent from the field in the opening two quarters of action while managing just 14 points in the first half.

  • Collins holds off North Oldham

    While the final score may have been close, Collins girls’ basketball effectively kept North Oldham at bay for much of the game on Tuesday night, picking up a 59-54 win in the process.

    With center Mary-Clare Megibben sidelined with an injury, sophomore point guard Olivia Federle picked up the slack at both ends of the floor, playing stout interior defense and scoring a game-high 20 points on 42 percent shooting in the win over the Mustangs as Collins virtually led from the opening tip until the final buzzer had sounded.

  • Colts run through visiting...

    DeSales jumped on the visiting Shelby County boys’ basketball team from the opening tip and rode that early momentum to a lopsided win over the Rockets Tuesday.

    After a first quarter that saw the Colts score 21 points and allow just four to Shelby, the Rockets had no answer for the onslaught on both sides of the ball, finally falling 74-41.

  • 30th District tournament set to...

    Following this weekend’s slate of games, Shelby County and Collins high schools will kick off the 30th District Tournament with games beginning on Tuesday night.

    On the boys’ side of the bracket, it will be the renewal of the crosstown rivalry between both schools in the third meeting of this season between the Titans and Rockets.

    SCHS has been on a tear, winning four of out of its previous six games and seemingly finding some footing on both ends of the floor.

  • Rockets, Titans earn spots at...

    Both Shelby County and Collins’ swim teams turned in strong performances at the Region Swim Meet at Woodford County High School over the weekend and will be represented at the KHSAA State Swim Meet later this month.

    “Our swimmers swam well. They swam fast [over the weekend] to qualify and swam faster [in the championship round],” Swim coach Tom Coons said. “That is all you can ask as a coach. You go a personal best time when the pressure is on, and that shows excellent composure [as an athlete].”

  • Shelby picks up weekend wins

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team closed its season on a high note over the weekend, defeating a visiting North Oldham squad in host duty on Friday night before traveling to Williamstown on Saturday and picking up a win there as well.

    A strong defensive effort allowed the Rockets (8-20) to officially close its season on a two-game winning streak, as SCHS topped Williamstown by seven points on Saturday.

  • Titans split tough slate

    A tough late stretch of games for Collins boys’ basketball continued over the weekend, as the Titans (19-8) split a pair of games against DeSales and Doss as the regular season winds down and the postseason begins.

    The Titans fought tooth-and-nail to try and overcome Doss on Saturday night, but the Dragons found a way to overcome its opponent in the overtime period.

  • Rockets defeat Henry County

    After a tight halftime score saw Henry County leading Shelby County boys’ basketball by one-point, the Rockets took control of the second half on the way to a 71-65 win over the visiting Wildcats on Friday night.

    A smaller lineup, boasting four and even five guards at a time, gave Henry trouble, as the visiting team struggled to keep up with the speed and elusiveness of the Rockets.
