  • Titans shut door on Anderson...

    The Titans showcased how tough of an opponent it is for district teams at home on Monday night, keeping foe Anderson County at bay and preventing the Bearcats from making a comeback win.

    “We were not sharp on the mound, I think we hit eight guys and several with two strikes,” Titans coach Mike Hammond said. “Those are kind of unforced errors, and things that can’t happen.”

  • Titans win game two, splits...

    The Thursday meeting between rivals Shelby County and Collins was far less contentious than the contest the day before, as the Titans came away with a 4-1 win and split the season series at one game apiece.

    While the game ended differently than the Wednesday meeting between teams, much of the contest appeared the same, with one team taking a small lead early, only to have the other come back shortly thereafter for the win.

  • Shelby County rallies to top...

    Game one of the two-game set between rivals Shelby County and Collins high schools went to the Rockets on Wednesday night, as the Rockets rallied late for a 2-1 victory.

    The win did not come without controversy, however, as a call in the top of the seventh inning swayed the result of the game permanently.

    With two outs and the bases loaded, Titan first baseman Evan Payne had a chance to knot the game, with the count sitting at two balls and two strikes.

  • Rockets take round one from...

    Seven innings was simply not enough to decide a winner between Collins and Shelby County’s softball teams on Wednesday night.

    Eight frames were needed in the first of two meetings between the county rivals this season, with the Rockets pulling out a 6-5 district win.

    Tied at 5-5 in the top of the eighth, outfielder Haley Vermillion scored what proved to be the game-winning run following an errant throw on a sacrifice bunt attempt from teammate Lauren Heckel.

  • Crowe heads to the Arizona...

    Growing up in Shelbyville, Austin Crowe never thought he would be working in a capacity with an NFL team, but that dream has become a reality.

    The former equipment manager for both Shelby County and Collins high schools recently accepted a post as an intern with the Arizona Cardinals’ equipment staff, and will be assisting the team through its training camp in the summer months.

  • Titans trade weekend wins

    The Collins baseball team picked up a win over a talented Male squad Thursday in a comeback effort, but couldn’t maintain that momentum in a tough 9 inning loss to Central Hardin on Saturday afternoon.

    The visiting Central Hardin team used a five-run rally in the top of the ninth inning to top Collins in extras on Saturday afternoon, pulling away late for the win over the Titans.

  • Rockets pick up two wins over...

    The Shelby County baseball team closed out its 4-1 record over the last week with a pair of victories and one loss, at the hands of Silver Creek, Ind. in the late afternoon on Saturday.

    “I thought we continued to swing the bat well, and we beat two quality teams in Franklin and Carroll,” Shelby coach Devin Hicks said. “Silver Creek has a heck of a team and hasn’t lost yet this season. We just never quite got on track in that one.”

  • Titans go 1-2 at Frankfort

    The Titans softball team ended the Capital City Showcase tournament 1-2, picking up a win over George Rogers Clark before falling to Pulaski County and Mercer County to close out the weekend.

    “We’re still not hitting the ball as consistently as we’d like,” Titans coach Charlie LeCompte said. “And we need to clean up our mistakes defensively if we want to put ourselves in a spot to win games.”

  • Rockets go winless at Capital...

    The Rocket softball team was not able to come up with a win over the weekend, as Shelby County traveled to Frankfort to compete in the Capital City Showcase tournament.

    SCHS (9-7) took close losses to three teams in Eastern, Johnson Central and Madison Southern to close out the weekend slate.

    Losing the final game of the tournament was a heartbreaker for the Rockets, as the Eagles made a comeback in the bottom of the sixth to seal a one-run victory.

  • Rockets sweep Anderson County

    Shelby County baseball picked up its first two district wins in back-to-back fashion, as the Rockets swept Anderson County in a pair of games this week.

    SCHS picked up its second win over Anderson in as many days on Wednesday, using another solid pitching performance en route to a 5-1 win over the Bearcats.

    Junior Caleb Collins went seven innings on the bump while tossing a two-hitter, allowing one earned run and fanning seven AC batters.
