  • Franklin County tops Shelby in OT

    While Shelby County boys’ basketball’s offense responded to a guard-heavy change in lineup on Wednesday night, it was not enough to top Franklin County on the road, as the Rockets fell in overtime to the Flyers, 74-69.

    “We played much better than we have the last two weeks,” Rockets coach Ken Cates said. “We needed to shake up the starting lineup so we went with a more guard-oriented lineup.”

  • Titans pick up win at Gallatin...

    A strong offensive push in the third quarter led by guards Jeian Hayes and Olivia Federle allowed Collins girls’ basketball to rally from behind on the scoreboard and eventually top host Gallatin County on Wednesday night for a 61-48 win and snapping a five-game losing streak in the process.

    The pair of Collins guards combined for 17 points in the third quarter alone, with Federle totaling 20 points to lead all scorers and Hayes adding 18.

  • Rockets fall to Western Hills,...

    A slow start combined with missed free throw opportunities against a visiting Western Hills team left Shelby County girls’ basketball searching for answers on Tuesday night, as the Rockets took a 59-47 loss to the Wolverines.

    Raydriana Stoudemire led Shelby (4-15) in scoring with 15 points, with 10 of her points coming in the third and fourth quarters combined to help try and spark a comeback bid that ended just short of its goal.

  • Shelby drops heartbreaker to...

    Shelby County girls’ basketball dropped a buzzer-beater to visiting Moore Monday.

    With time expiring in the fourth quarter and the two teams tied at 43, Mustangs forward Stacia Hayes stepped through the lane and delivered a floating layup that found the bottom of the net as time expired, handing the Rockets the narrow two-point loss.

  • Titans win pair of weekend games

    Collins boys’ basketball picked up a pair of impressive wins over the weekend, with victories against Valley on Friday night, and a win over 8th Region contender Simon Kenton on Saturday morning.

    Collins 73, Simon Kenton 60

    The Titans hot weekend continued on Saturday afternoon, as Collins defeated a very talented Simon Kenton squad while shooting 50 percent from both the field and behind the arc.

  • Valley pounds Shelby, 82-48

    Shelby County boys’ basketball took a rough loss at the hands of Valley on Saturday afternoon as the Vikings came away with the 82-48 win over the Rockets.

    Valley (10-7) jumped out to a huge lead behind a pair of 20-plus point quarters, as SCHS struggled to slow the Vikings.

    By half the Vikings had tallied 51 points thanks to senior guard Damont Walter’s 16, he would finish with a game-best 18 points.

  • Bearcats run through Collins

    A late run in the first quarter of Friday night’s district matchup between Collins girls’ basketball and Anderson County left the Titans in a hole they could not match.

    Both teams were knotted at 11 with 2:09 left in the opening frame when the Bearcats (13-4) ended the quarter on a 9-0 run.

    The 20-11 lead then continue to grow in the second quarter and beyond as Anderson’s runs continued to mount.

    The Bearcats went on to coast to a 65-45 win over the Titans (6-11), dropping Collins to 2-3 in district play this season.

  • Titans take first place at...

    The Collins girls and boys swim teams turned in strong performances Saturday morning at the rescheduled senior night swim meet, with the Titans taking first in both standings.

    The Shelby County boys made a solid run as well, taking second place behind the Titans.

    “Both the Collins and Shelby County teams swam well today,” coach Tom Coons said. “It was senior night which brings a lot of emotion for everyone in attendance. We have one meet left before our regional entry is due, and that will be the last chance to earn spots on that roster.”

  • Center gives jumpers year-round...

    Since its opening in the late summer of 2015, the Whelan-Nault Vault Center has provided athletes of all ages and ability levels the chance to work at pole vaulting in an indoor facility.

    Owner Ray Sabbatine, who built the facility to assist his daughter Andrea, who was competing for the University of Louisville at the time, says that athletes from all over the southeastern and midwestern United States have come to work out at the vault center.

  • Schools ready to finally get...

    With several games cancelled over the course of the last week, both Shelby County and Collins high schools are champing at the bit to kick off the back half of the basketball season.

    The Rocket boys’ team is notably one of those units, as the team travels to face off with North Oldham tonight beginning at 7:30 p.m., before traveling to take on Valley on Saturday afternoon.

    The Mustangs have had an up-and-down season thus far, having compiled an 8-8 record to this point in the year, while the Vikings sit at 8-6.
